Microsoft Office Word Macros on a shortcut key


Macros are very powerful and better if you can make them handy if you assign a shortcut key to your macros. This tip works with Microsoft Word 97, Word 2000, Word 2002, and Word 2003.



  • Select Customize from the Tools menu. You will see the Customize dialog box.
  • Click on the Keyboard button. Word displays the Customize Keyboard dialog box
  • Scroll through the Categories list and select the Macros category. The list at the right side of the dialog box changes to show the currently available macros.
  • In the Macros list, select the macro you want assigned to the shortcut key.
  • With the insertion pointer in the Press New Shortcut Key box, press the shortcut key you want to use. For instance, if you want to use Ctrl+Alt+J, press that.
  • Just below the Press New Shortcut Key box you can see whether the shortcut key is already assigned to a different function.
  • Click on Assign.
  • Repeat steps 4 through 7 for each change you want to make.
  • Click on Close.
