Inside the brain of a Geek: Visual cheat sheet for keyboard shortcuts

Love the idea of keyboard shortcuts but can’t seem to memorize all the key combinations? Office 2007 and 2010 now have more shortcut options with a cool visual cheat sheet.

Press Alt in Word 2010 to display the KeyTip badges.

Press H on the keyboard to move to the Home tab. Now use the KeyTip badges to execute a command. 1 will turn on bold. FF will change the font.
