The Single Greatest Time-Saving Keyboard Shortcut in Windows History

Ok, perhaps that’s a tad hyperbolic . . . . But not by much. It’s one of the best technology tips for lawyer time management I know of.

By hitting the Windows Logo key and the letter V at the same time, instead of Control V, the contents of your text capture is pasted as plain text.

This means you will never again have to struggle with undoing the format properties of the source document, whether it’s a web page, another Word doc, or any other source!

Your text will be placed into the destination document with the properties of that document. No more wasted time or maddening frustration with reformatting pasted content. Learn it. Get in the habit of using it – and start seeing your legal productivity improve.
