Date and Time Keyboard Shortcuts

Date and Time Keyboard Shortcuts

If you’re someone who frequently inserts the current date and/or time into your MS Word documents or PowerPoint presentations, here’s a keyboard shortcut I just know you’re going to love!

In MS Word, you can press Alt + Shift + D to insert the current date and Alt + Shift + T to insert the current time.

In MS PowerPoint, if you press either combination, you’ll get a window that looks like this:

Now you’re free to make choices as to the type of data you put on your slide(s). When finished, click the Apply to All button to put the data on the entire presentation (including the master slide) or click Apply to put the data on the slides that were selected before you began.

What more could you ask for? Time and dates at our fingertips, no mouse required!
