Ingenious Word Tip – Use Shift & F5 to quickly jump to the last positions in the document

Today we would like to show you a very unknown but ingenious tip for Word in this short Microsoft Word tutorial .

There is namely the possibility with the key combination

Shift & F5 toggle between the last 4 cursor positions. This means that Word remembers the last 4 editing points in the Word document and Word now jumps to the relevant cursor position each time you press the ” Shift + F5 ” key combination . You can repeat this a total of four times until you have returned to the very last position in Word at which you pressed the capitalization key + F5 for the first time .

In order to explain this a little more clearly , we have shown it to you in the following illustration.

Jump to the last positions in Word

We have marked a total of 4 words in this word blind text (random or filler text) and shown in bold. We always jumped to the respective word with the mouse and adapted the formatting. If you then press Shift and the function key F5 several times , the cursor automatically jumps between these 4 last positions in the Word document.

In this way, you can sometimes save a lot of work and time if you jump to another text passage at short notice and want to jump back to the original place afterwards without having to do this with the mouse or the touchpad .
