Move an Entire Row in MS Word

Have you ever felt the need to move an entire row in an Word table?

Maybe you’ve decided that the first row of information should really be the 5th row… so, what did you do?

Did you insert a new row below the 4th one, copy & paste the information into its new position and then go back and delete the first row? Or maybe you tried one of the many other possibilities that basically amount to the same thing.

It sounds like a lot of wasted time and yet you definitely need to move row one down to be row five.

Here’s a way to move a row to a new location without a copy, paste, row insertion or deletion anywhere in the process… in fact, you don’t even need your mouse to accomplish this one.

Here’s the trick:

1. Place your cursor in a cell on the row that is to be moved. (To move multiple consecutive rows highlight at least one cell in each row.)

2. Use Shift + Alt +up/down arrow keys to make the move.

That’s it – your row will move through the table allowing you to settle it into a new location with minimum hassle.

Yeah!
