    Is there a way to reset all of the keyboard shortcuts for the synbols in the "Symbol box" from the insert menu in Word?

    Hmmm. Not sure what you mean, specifically, but try this anyway. I doubt it will hurt!

    Tools-customize.
    Commands tab.
    Choose Insert on th left and InsertSymbol on the right and hit the RESET ALL button.

    When I type the letter “m,j or f” followed by pressing the “space bar” I get a "phi" symbol.

    The "space bar" short cut isn’t indicated for the "phi" symbol in the symbol box.

    Please see the attachment.

    Oh!!

    Methinks you have autocorrect entries that you want to get rid of. Go to Tools-Autocorrect, and look through the list for weirdos and delete them.
