Today Brendon asked whether we could give her Ctrl+Shift+F as a custom shortcut to insert an equation in Microsoft Word 2013. Luckily Word is the only Office application where you can assign custom shortcuts already.
Here is how to create a custom shortcut in Microsoft Word 2013:
- File > Options
- Customize Ribbon > Keyboard Shortcuts: Customize…
- Find and click the appropriate Command (Insert Tab > Equation Insert)
- Click inside the “Press new shortcut key:”
- Press the keyboard shortcut you want to assign (Ctrl+Shift+F)
- (Check the currently assigned to understand whether you overwrite another shortcut)
- Click “Assign”
- Click Close
That’s it when you press Ctrl+Shift+F now a new “Equation” should be inserted.
Any questions please ask in the comments.
And If you can’t wait until we have the custom shortcuts in KeyRocket shoot me an email to email@example.com and I’ll implement your custom shortcut as another case study!
