Customize the Work Menu in MS Word

Dennis Faas's picture

You can add the CTRL + ALT + - shortcut to your command to your Work menu.

Follow the steps below to learn how:

  • Click on Tools | Customize.  
  • Click on the Commands tab.  
  • Under Categories, on the left, select All Commands.
  • Select ToolsCustomize | RemoveRemoveMenuShortcut from the right side.  
  • Drag the selection to your Work menu. Even if you have already put documents on your Work menu, you will not see them listed.
  • Release the mouse when you have the command where you would like it.

If you would like to shorten the command, you can right-click it and rename it. If you type an ampersand (&) before it, you will make that a keyboard shortcut.
