Productivity suites like Microsoft Office let you create any number of documents, spreadsheets and presentations, and give you a great deal of control over all the aspects of the document. One drawback is that there are also a lot of buttons to remember or locate. You can still format text and characters by using keyboard shortcuts, so as you write your physics paper, for example, you can quickly set some of your numbers or letters as a subscript.
Open your Microsoft Office document.
Select the word or letters you want in subscript by double-clicking on the entire word or dragging the cursor over the characters while holding down the mouse button.
Press "Ctrl-=" to make the word or character in subscript.
Tips & Warnings
- If you made a mistake and selected the wrong word or characters, press "Ctrl-Z" or click the "Undo" button in the Quick Start menu.
