Solved: Microsoft Word 2010 fnd
Is there any way to reprogram MS Word 2012 so that ^F brings up the (what's now called) "advance find" function instead of the new find function? (Note that if the "navigation window" is closed, ^F doesn't work at all.)

Hi Jim,
For me, if the navigation pane is closed, Ctrl+F opens it. Does that not happen for you?

In any case, yes, you can reassign Ctrl+F. You can also use Ctrl+H to open the find and replace dialog box if you decide you don't want to reassign Ctrl+F. But if you do ...
  • Right click an empty space on the Ribbon and select Customize the Ribbon.
  • At the bottom, click the "Customize" box for keyboard shortcuts.
  • Select the Home tab on the left and scroll down to EditFind on the right.
  • Click in the "press new shortcut key field" and press Ctrl+F.
  • Click Assign.

Hope that helps.

thanks, it works like a charm. And I learned something about customizing MS Office 2010. (The reason I care is that I like my at-work program (Office 2007) to be at least partially consistent with my office program (Office 2010).)

I know what you mean about trying to keep different environments consistent. The hardest part about customizing shortcuts in 2010 is figuring out what the thing you're trying to do is called. Glad it worked.
