Your technical problems tackled

Using Word on a PC I often have several documents open and cut and paste between them. I know I can use the Window menu to switch between active documents but find this tedious. Is there a quick way to switch back and forth? - P Slater,Bradford

There is a keyboard shortcut that you can use to cycle between any open documents. Simply hold down the Alt key and press the Tab key. Every time you press Tab the next window comes to the front. Eventually you come back to the one you began with.
