Word 2013: Cut & Paste With F2

Wednesday, April 29th, 2015 by | Filed Under: MS Office Help, MS Word

Here’s a quick keyboard shortcut for Word 2013.  To move text in a document, you could highlight text, use the Ctrl + x  keys to cut, move the cursor, and then the Ctrl +v key to paste. Or you could highlight the text, right click, choose the cut option then move the cursor to where you want to insert and choose the paste option.  But I’ve got and even easier way. 

Highlight the text and press the F2 key.


At the bottom right of the screen, “Move to where” will pop up.


More the cursor where you want the text to go in the document and press the “enter” key. The text will move to that location.

    Good tip, and it also works in Word 2007. If I hadn’t been told to look for it, I would never have seen the question at the bottom of the screen, “Move where.”
