Microsoft Word is undoubtedly one of the most popular apps used by people all over the world to create documents for various purposes. Therefore, the easier it is to access the documents, the better. While you can use Word your way using the different tools available, we still continue to find shortcuts to perform some actions that help us save time.

For example, you can open the print window using the shortcut Ctrl + P, save the document using Ctrl + S, and so on. Likewise, there is a link to delete pages in MS Word as well.

You can set it according to your viewing requirements.
