Click right! Right Clicks in Word, Excel and Outlook

Microsoft Office programs are so packed full of right-click menus that you may never need to use the ribbon again. Give it a try. 

In a Microsoft Word table, right-click and you’ll be able to do all sorts of table formatting, directly from the shortcut menu. For example, you can insert and delete rows, columns, and cells, add borders and shading, and adjust the width of the table.

Microsoft Execl, you can format cells with a right-click. The exact commands you see on the menu depend on where you click in the spreadsheet. For example, you can easily filter or sort a list from a right-click.
