How to Move Rows Up and Down in a Word Table Using Your Keyboard

Posted by Roger Hyttinen on

If you have to rearrange rows in a table, there’s no need to cut and paste. You can quickly move rows up or down with a simple keyboard shortcut.

To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Select the row or rows you want to move.
  2. Press the Shift + Alt + the up or down arrow key on your keyboard. The Shift + Alt + Up Arrow moves the row up by one row and the Shift + Alt + Down Arrow moves the row down.

That’s it! This shortcut also works with paragraphs. Select the paragraph and press Shift + Alt + Up Arrow to move the paragraph above the preceding paragraph or Shift + Alt + Down Arrow to move it below the following paragraph.

I find this shortcut to be a real time saver.
