A Fast Way To Bookmark


Q. When I’m working on several documents during the day, I place a Bookmark in each file to indicate where I left off. I know there are multiple ways to do things in Office Suite applications. Is there a faster way to leave a Bookmark to indicate the place you last worked in a document?

A. There’s an extremely simple way. In Word, when you reopen a document, just press Shift+F5 and you’ll be taken to where you were in the document before you closed it. You can even use the shortcut to return to the last place you were editing in the same session.

Use the Ctrl+O shortcut to evoke a list of often-used file paths for fast switching.
