Footnote Hot Key in MS Word
If you are employed in the legal arena, then you know that there are always lots of little fun footnotes in your documents, especially if you are still in law school. Believe it or not, I grew a lawyer -- yes, my son is an attorney at law so I know of what I speak.
I think I speak for lawyers and legal assistants everywhere when I say that it is a big old pain in the butt to click on Insert | Reference | Footnote every time you need a footnote in your document. So I will share this handy dandy hot key that will make your life sooooo much easier. My mantra is save time and keystrokes!
MS Word has a nifty hot key that will insert a footnote for you no matter where your cursor is sitting in your document. See below for the magic key combination:

Abra cadabra! You now have a footnote -- just enter the text.
