Some of the keyboard shortcuts in this section apply not only to Project but to every Microsoft Office program, so you can learn them once, and then put them to work in all your favorite programs. Project doesn't come with flip cards to help you memorize these esoteric keyboard combinations, but if you memorize the ones for the tasks you perform most, then you can often save time without overtaxing your brain.
If you memorize the shortcuts in this appendix and are still hungry for more, in Project, choose Help → Microsoft Office Project Help. At the top of the Project Help window, in the Search box, type keyboard shortcuts, and then click Search. The first help topic link should be "Keyboard shortcuts for Microsoft Office Project 2007". Click the link to view a complete list of keyboard shortcuts specific to Project, and many that apply to all Microsoft Office programs.
These favorites apply to all Microsoft Office programs, and they're commands you use all the time. The keyboard shortcuts in Table C-1 should be at the top of your memorization list.
