Yesterday, I mentioned you can press the Backspace key to move up a folder when you’re working with files.
For Microsoft Office apps (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.), you can do the same thing with Alt+2.
Suppose, for example, you’re viewing top-secret plans in Word, and want to save a copy of them on your Desktop. You’d do the following:
- Hit F12 to get the Save As dialog box.
- Alt+2 several times, until the Desktop is displayed. (Normally you’d instead hit Shift+Tab, then Backspace several times.)
- Type the file name you want and press Enter.
