Hello!

OS: Microsoft XP SP2
MS Office 2003

My shortcut combinations suddenly disappeared. Now I have Ctrl+Insert for Copy in Word, adn Ctrl+C for Copy in Excel. I would like to recover the shortcut combinations to be as Ctrl+C - as it is in Excel.

Tools>Customize>Keyboard>Reset All... does not help.

Thank you.

Mihail

Try to add shortcut combination Dec 9, 2007

Hi Mihail,

look at Tools>Customize>Keyboard (categories: Edit, Commands: EditCopy). Do you have Ctrl+C in the Current keys box? If no, try to add it in Press new shortcut key box.

Natalia

it is not only one shortcut combination Dec 9, 2007

As I wrote, I have lost the whole set of shortcuts. It is not up to just one shortcut.

Try installing Office again. Mar 3, 2008

The better way to solve this problem is installing Office again, dont worry everything you have, it will be there.

Check your default input language. Apr 4, 2008

Try this:

Start > Settings > Control Panel > Regional and Language Options > Languages > Details > Settings > default input language and then please choose "English (United States) - United States-International"

Hope it could help.

This does not have anything common with the shortcuts in MS Office.

Delete normal.dot Apr 4, 2008

If you don't have plenty of customizations (macros, keyboard shortcuts, styles, etc.), just delete normal.dot and let MS Word recreate it.
Quit MS Word. Go to C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates and rename normal.dot to something else, say, normal.bak. Start MS Word. It should recreate the file. You will lose and custom settings you've made.
And be careful not to delete the original normal.dot in the MS Office folder.
