Look Ma, No Mouse!

PC Magazine have a great tip for those of us using MS Office 2010.

You can avoid having to mouse-click your way through Office's Ribbon with a single tap of the Alt key. Tap it, and little boxed letters will appear on all the ribbon tabs, with numbers appearing in the Quick Access area. Then all you have to do is key the letters for the item you want.

For example, if you are in Outlook, in an email folder view, with an email selected. If you key Alt, then H, this will take you to the Home tab, where you can see a selection of command letters. Then key "RP" and a reply to selected email will pop up, ready for you to type into. Drop down and expansion lists also have lettered items you can select. Once in menus or lists, you can use also arrow keys to select items.

To get back to normal view, just click Alt again. So easy.
