If your MS Word document is
automatically printing on 2 pages but you’d prefer to have it on 1 page, use a
command to quickly shrink it to 1 PAGE!
The command is called, “Shrink One Page” and it’s found on the
“Print Preview Edit Mode” tool. NOTE: If you have Word 2007, skip this next section, because you already have this tool. See section, Shrink your Word Document. If you have Word 2010 or 2013, this tool is not found on the Ribbon or Quick
Access Toolbar (QAT).You will need to
add it to the QAT. (The QAT is located in the top left corner of your MS Word screen,
either directly above or below the Ribbon.)
Follow the instructions below
to add the Print Preview Edit Mode to
(NOTE: You will only need to add
the tool once.Then it will always be
available every time you open MS Word.)
Open Microsoft Word 2010 or 2013.
Right-click anywhere on the Ribbon.
Click Customize Quick Access Toolbar...
In the Choose Commands from drop-down box select All Commands.
Scroll down the commands and select Print Preview Edit Mode.
Click the Add button in the center of the screen.
The command is added to the Quick Access Toolbar on the right.
Now the Print Preview Edit Mode can be opened from the QAT.

2. DO ONE OF THE FOLLOWING --FOR WORD 2010 OR 2013: Click the Print Preview Edit Mode command on the Quick Access toolbar

If Word is able to shrink your
document, it will automatically shrink to 1 page. Note: If your document contains graphics or
tables, Word might not be able to shrink the document.
When you press SHIFT+F5 (function key) in Microsoft Word, your insertion point will move to the last text that was edited in the document. Press SHIFT+F5 again and it moves to the section that was edited prior to the last one. Press SHIFT+F5 again and it moves to the section that was edited prior to the last two.
This feature is called "GoBack" and can be applied to the last 3 edits.
Microsoft Word has a feature that
creates an automatic line when you type 3 or more of the following same
characters and then press ENTER: * (asterisk), - (hyphen), _ (underscore), or = (equal)
The line above was created by
typing the equals sign (=) three times and then pressing ENTER. Creating the
line is easy, but I struggled to find a method to delete it (after it was too
late to UNDO)! After researching the problem, I found this solution on Allan Wyatt’s Word Tips, so I am
directing you to his website link below:
Here are a few tips which will help in using Windows 8.1:
If you can't find an application, from the Start Tile screen, just start typing what you want. The Search bar appears on the right side of the screen with items matching your search request. Click on the appropriate item.
To close a window do ONE of the following:
If you have a touch screen, drag your finger from the top of the window to the bottom of the window. You should see the window get smaller and then disappear.
If you don't have a touch screen, place your mouse pointer at the top of the window (it will change to a hand icon). Drag the mouse from the top to the bottom of the screen and release the mouse. You should see the window get smaller and then disappear.
To view your Desktop from the Start Tile screen, press the Windows key + the letter d (on your keyboard). To return to the tiles screen, press the Windows key (on the Taskbar or keyboard)
To jump between all OPEN programs, hold ALT key and press TAB. Keep pressing the TAB key while still holding ALT to choose a different program. When you release the ALT key, the program you selected displays. NOTE: This also works in earlier operating systems.
To shut down your computer:
Press Windows key + c
Click Shut Down.
OR Use this SHORTCUT: Windows key + X, press U, press U.
The Format Painter, in Microsoft Office programs will save you lots of time when it comes to copying formats of text, cells, or objects to other text, cells, or objects.
For example, you have text that is already formatted with one or more formatting options, like font size, color or style and you have other text that is not currently formatted, but you'd like to format the text exactly like the other.
Your document contains this:example text 1 and this: example text 2. You want example text 2 to look like example text 1.
First select the text of the format you want to keep: example text 1
Double-click on the format painter (on the HOME tab of the ribbon). If you single click on the format painter you will only be able to paint one selection.
The paint brush is now attached to your mouse pointer. Drag the paintbrush across all the text, cells, or objects that you want to format exactly like the originally selected text.
When you have "painted" all the text, cells, or objects that you want to have the same format, turn off the Format Painter by clicking the Format Painter again.
ADVANCED: For those of you who use Conditional Formatting in Excel, the Format Painter will also copy existing Conditional Formats onto the cells you paint.
