Keyboard Shortcuts | Making a Quick Escape: [CTRL + W]

.

Today, in Keyboard Shortcuts, we will be covering [CTRL + Q] and [CTRL + W].

.

First Keyboard Shortcut: [CTRL + Q]

 

[CTRL + Q] is used in Microsoft Word as a formatting tool. Pressing this combination of keys on your keyboard will result in Aligning Left any highlighted text.

.

Below is a good example of this effect, with the red text being that which has been highlighted:

.

.

Before pressing [CTRL + Q]:

This is the beginning of example text.

This is the middle of example text.

This is the end of example text.

After pressing [CTRL +Q]:

This is the beginning of example text.

This is the middle of example text.

This is the end of example text.

.

.

This Shortcut is helpful for when working on a document with complex formatting, like a script or a resume.   In Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer, [CTRL + Q] does nothing.

.

Second Keyboard Shortcut: [CTRL + W]

 

[CTRL + W] can be used to exit a single document or page without exiting the entire program. This can be done in any program.

.

.

In Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer, pressing [CTRL + W] will exit you from the tab or webpage you are currently in.

If you have multiple tabs currently open, this will push you into the tab immediately to the right. Otherwise, it will exit you from the browser completely.

.

In Microsoft Word, pressing [CTRL + W] will exit the document you are currently in.

However, it will also leave the Microsoft Word window open. This allows you to open a new document without restarting Word or keeping the current document open.
