The Evolution Of Keyboard Shortcuts

Shortcuts are now called Key Tips. Press ALT to make the key tip badges appear for all ribbon tabs, Quick Access Toolbar commands and the Office Button. You can then press the Key Tip to activate the tab or command that you want. You can still use all the old shortcuts like ctrl-c to copy and ctrl-v to paste.

For example, to quickly insert a table, you would press Alt-N-T. N takes you to the Insert Tab and T inserts a table. The advantage of this method is that you don't have to remember keyboard shortcuts; as soon as you press ALT the Key Tips are displayed.

Keyboard shortcuts that start with ctrl are not different. Key combinations that start with ALT are however different.
