Microsoft Word – moving paragraphs and bullet points

When they want to move a paragraph further down in a Word document most people cut and paste. Similarly with bullet points. However, there is another way which doesn’t leave extra spaces between paragraphs or extra bullet points.

Select the paragraph or bullet point you want to move – triple-clicking in a paragraph will select the whole paragraph.

To move the paragraph or bullet point further down the page, press Shift + Alt + Down arrow key – the way that I remember it is that it is SAD to be moved down the page! Repeat as necessary until the paragraph is in the required place.

To move the paragraph or bullet point further up the page, press Shift + Alt + Up arrow key.
