SUMMARY

This article contains a list of keyboard shortcuts available in Microsoft Graph 97. This list is a compilation of the individual keyboard shortcut lists available in Graph Help.

NOTE: Shortcut keys mentioned in the Help topics, menus, and dialog boxes refer to the U.S. keyboard layout. Keys on other layouts may not correspond exactly to the keys on a U.S. keyboard. If you are using a different language keyboard layout from the version of Microsoft Word you are using, you may have to make adjustments when using shortcut keys.
