Microsoft Office – using tooltips

Wondering what all those buttons do in Microsoft Office (Word, Excel PowerPoint, etc.)?

While in any Microsoft Office program, hover your mouse pointer over a button to view the tooltip on any button. Many tooltips also display the keyboard shortcut associated with the button. Some tooltips provide more detail or show you how the button works when you click it.

For example, if you hover over the button that looks like two pieces of paper, the tooltip displays Copy (Ctrl+C). This means you can click the button or press Ctrl+ C on your keyboard to copy the selection to the clipboard.

Hover around in Microsoft Office and find out what all those buttons do.

This tip applies to all current and most past versions of Microsoft Office.
