Ctrl+Left Arrow and Ctrl+Right Arrow: Move by word

This week’s set of tips will be focused on navigation shortcuts — keyboard methods of navigating around in a document. These work for most applications, but are especially useful when you’re using Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, Notepad, WordPad, or other word processing and editing programs.

Today’s tip is to use the Ctrl key plus either the Left Arrow key or the Right Arrow key. Each time you press this keystroke, you’ll move to the beginning of the previous or next word. Try each several times to get the hang of it.
