Shortcuts on your computer keyboard can help save you time when you’re working in Microsoft Word. Here’s today’s shortcut:

Ctrl + W Word Keystroke

“Exit document” means that in Word, the file that you are working on will close, leaving the empty “Microsoft Word” window. From there, you may open a document or create a new one.

If you have multiple “Word” windows open, it will immediately exit out of the one you are currently in and go to the next open Word document.


For Example:

(when one Word document is open)

Ctrl + W Word Beforehand

Ctrl + W Word Afterwards
