After pasting text in MS Word 2007, there is a little paste menu that you can click to change how the text was pasted. Is there a keyboard shortcut to open that menu?

It's Alt+Shift+F10. I can tell you I was very happy when I found this one hidden away in the Help --- it's so much nicer to be able to access those popup menus with the keyboard...

Awesome. Thanks! – Polshgiant Jun 29 '10 at 12:03

On MS Word 2010 it is just "Ctrl". Try this.

Doesn't work in 2007. Woulda been sweet, though! – Polshgiant May 20 '10 at 2:17

The Edit / Paste Special option does the same task, although you use it slightly differently (you specify the format first, and then it does the paste). I'm pretty sure that has a keyboard shortcut, or can be assigned one.
