Fast Ways to Move Around in Word

BY STANLEY ZAROWIN

Q. It takes me forever to move my cursor around a Word document. I know Ctrl + Home takes me to the beginning of a document and Ctrl + End takes me to the end. But I suspect there are other shortcuts for moving around a document.

A. Right you are. Here they are:

  • Ctrl + left arrow jumps you a whole word to the left.

  • Ctrl + right arrow jumps you a whole word to the right.

  • Ctrl + up arrow takes you to the start of the paragraph you’re in.

  • Ctrl + down arrow takes you to the start of the next paragraph.
