Excel and Word Shortcuts

BY STANLEY ZAROWIN

Excel: To rename a worksheet in Excel, instead of right-clicking on the worksheet tab and choosing Rename , simply double-click on the tab, type in the new name and then press Enter.

Word: When you’ve finished your work and you have a bunch of open files, you don’t have to close or save them one at a time if you use Word 2000 or later. If you press the Shift key as you click on the File menu in the toolbar, you’ll see that the Save and Close command now gives you the option of saving or closing all of them in one fell swoop ( Save All, Close All ).
