Type Out a Table in Word

You can create tables in Microsoft Word by simply typing out a string of PLUS SIGNS + and MINUS SIGNS -.
Start the row with a PLUS SIGN + and then type MINUS SIGN - until you have the column width you want. To add a new column type PLUS SIGN + again. When you're done type a final PLUS SIGN + and press ENTER. Word turns your text into a table. To add more rows to your table, move to the last cell in the table and press TAB

Select a vertical block of text
Press Alt + drag

Quickly Replicate Text or Graphics in Word

  1. Select the item or text you want to copy.
  2. Press and hold down the CTRL key.
  3. Then use the mouse to drag the item to the desired position.
A copy of the original item is made right where you want it. This is helpful when you're creating a document that will include a lot of repeated text or images
