Subject: [access-uk] keyboard shortcuts in word

Hi everyone,

I wanted to find out how I can get a comprehensive list of keyboard shorcuts 
for MS word.

I wanted the keyboard shortcut for increasing and decreasing indent.

So, if anyone happens to know more shortcut keys, I'd like to hear from you.

It would just make my life easier really.  Particularly with my IT studies.
All the best,
