More Shift Key Functions

BY STANLEY ZAROWIN

Q. Once when I finished working in Excel and had a bunch of open files, I clicked on the File button to save a file, and lo and behold, saw the menu choice Close All . Wow, what a time-saver! But try as I might, I can’t get the File button to display Close All again. Any ideas?

A. You must have accidentally held down the Shift key when you clicked on File . When you do that, Close changes to Close All (see screenshot below).

Bonus: In Word, when you hold down the Shift key and click on File , Save changes to Save All (see screenshot below).
