Microsoft Word gets ‘Paste Text Only’ shortcut

Microsoft Word gets 'Paste Text Only' shortcut

San Francisco, March 10 (SocialNews.XYZ) Microsoft has added a "Paste Text Only" keyboard shortcut to Word that allows users to paste plain text, which is available for Windows and Mac.

"You might be familiar with this shortcut Ctrl + Shift + V (Cmd + Shift + V on Mac) -- it's also called "keep text only" or "paste plain text" -- because of its popularity in other applications like Microsoft Teams, Word for the web, Google and Gmail. No matter what you call it, the Paste Text Only shortcut is now available in Word for Windows and Word Mac," Microsoft said in a blogpost.


To check how this shortcut works, users will need to select a range of text from their current document or another document, and then in their Word document, they will need to place the cursor where they want the text to appear.

After that, press Ctrl + Shift + V (Cmd + Shift + V on Mac) -- users will now notice how the pasted content matches the neighbouring text formatting, rather than preserving its original font size, colour, etc.

Meanwhile, Microsoft has announced it is testing an enhanced volume mixer in Quick Settings for Windows 11, which will allow users to quickly customise the audio.

This new feature is rolling out to the latest "Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25309 to the Dev Channel," the tech giant said.
