Current Date and Time

Not too long ago, I got an e-mail from a reader who needed to know the keyboard shortcuts for the current date and time in MS Word.

Since these are always handy tidbits to know, I thought it would make a quick and useful wrap-up to the week!

In MS Word:

  • Alt + Shift + D will insert the current date into your document.
  • Alt + Shift + T will insert the current time into your document.

And as an extra bit of information, I’d like to offer the following.

In MS PowerPoint:

Either of the above key combinations for MS Word brings up the Date and Time window where you can choose what’s to be inserted on a PowerPoint slide.

In MS Excel:

  • Ctrl + ; (semicolon) will insert the current date into your worksheet.
  • Ctrl + Shift + : (colon) will insert the current time into your worksheet.

Unknown to most, the current date and time really are at your fingertips!
