Reorder Lineup in a Table

BY STANLEY ZAROWIN

I hesitate to use tables in Word because they are so hard to edit. For example, it’s a real pain to change the sequence of names from one place to another. Do you have any suggestions?

The trick is in the Alt and Shift keys. If you want to move Milo in the table below to the top rank, click in the Milo row, hold down the Alt and Shift keys together and press the up arrow as many times as it takes to bring Milo to the top.

This shortcut works just as well outside a table. You can reorder paragraphs as well as items in bulleted or numbered lists by using the same technique.
