2. If you do not already own the blind typing method, then CAPS LOCK can play a cruel joke with you. By accidentally turning it on and not looking at the screen, you can type a mountain of text that will have to be deleted and rewritten from scratch because of one pressed button. But by selecting the desired text and pressing Shift F3, you quickly change the case from uppercase to lowercase.

3.Cursor acceleration

Usually, if you move the cursor with the arrows, it moves one letter at a time. To speed up its movement, hold down the Ctrl key together with the arrow.

Go to the "Developer" tab that appears and find the "Checkbox" element, which has a checkmark (why not). Now, by clicking on the checkbox, you can create task lists and mark them as completed.

18. If you accidentally mess up your list, you can select the text vertically. To do this, hold Alt and use the mouse cursor to select.

To protect a document with a password, go to the "File" tab and select the "Protect document" option. Now feel free to create a password, but remember that if you forget it, you will not be able to recover it.
