I am facing a problem with all the keyboard shortcuts involving the CTRL button. This happens only in MS Word while at the same time it works just fine in other MS Office applications. For example Ctrl+Z or Ctrl+X etc don't work in MS Word. How can I solve this problem? I am using MS Office 2007.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If it used to work and is now failing, then try a repair of office. If that fails to help try an uninstall/reinstall of office. Deleting the normal.dot file used to help with previous versions, but I don’t know if that helps in 2007.

This <a href=”http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc179143.aspx”> Microsoft TechNet page</a> discusses using group policies and other methods to <i><b>disable</b></i> various shortcut keys. You could check in these areas and see if they have been disabled, and if so use these setting to enable them. Note at the bottom there is a link that allows you to download the information in a book format.
Good Luck!

You can always change those keyboard shortcuts. Click on the Microsoft logo in the upper left hand of the document, it opens a menu, in the lower poertion is something called Word Options. Another window opens click on Customize, at the bottom of that window is Keyboard shortcuts. You can select how you want the shortcuts to work and you can select different keys. Thsi may eleiminate your problem, if you have 2 diffeent versions of a Microsoft Application opened.
Good Luck.
