How to set Shortcuts for Context Menu Items RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am working on one problem in which i have to assign Keyboard shortcuts to the context menu items in Word 2007. Suppose that when user right clicks on the Document then the context menu appears which consists of some items (user defined and inBuild). So i have to define shortcuts for the user defined items. Like

    ABC is my Item in context menu and after expanding it, it shows

    ABC --> Name
                 Age
                 Class

    So i have to assign Keyboard shortcuts for Name, Age and Class.

    Can someone suggest me what should i do in this case????


    Thanks

    Regards

  • Hi Shahab,

    The previous post explains about customizing the context menu. You can define a shortcut for a particular command by going to: Word Options - > Customize -> Shortcuts - Customize -> select the command/macro -> assign a shortcut
