Default doing a 'find and replace' w/o the mouse

Hi all,

I am running Word 2010.

I do a lot of ‘find’ and ‘replace’ manually.

As a keyboard junkie, I hate having to reach for the mouse to select the replace command.

What I do on the keyboard is
1. ctrl f
2. then I type in my search string
3. then I hit enter’ to get me to the point where I need to reach for the mouse


żany help in how to enter my replacement string w/o using the mouse?



THANKS!

Try Ctrl-H instead of Ctrl-F. You can use the tab key to move around the dialog box and press the Enter key when the appropriate button is selected.

I don't know why this is posted as a poll.
