In MS Word, shortcuts can be defined by user.

Where in the menu would I find to assign a shortcut so that with one keyboard click, I can switch to review view that says 'final'.?

There is in Word Options - Customize - Customize (keyboard shortcuts) an item 'DisplayForReview' but it only accesses the drop down option to select 'final' 'final','showing markup, 'original'. I want to access the 'final' item within that menu.

Create a macro that chooses the view you want, and assign it to a shortcut key.

  1. Click the square-shaped macro-recording button at the bottom of Word's application window
  2. Type displayFinal or a similar name in the macro name text box
  3. Click the Keyboard icon and choose the shortcut key you want to assign
  4. Click Close to start recording the macro
  5. Click the Final item in the review tab's tracking group
  6. Click the again square-shaped button at the bottom of Word's application window to stop recording the macro.

Now you can press your shortcut key to re-run this macro choosing the review tab

I want to mention that new Word macros are saved to normal.dot template. This way macros are available in all new word documents. (at least Word 2003 does it this way) –  nixda Jan 3 '13 at 21:13
    
step 0 is actually enable developer tab via 'word options' -> popular –  user984532 Jan 3 '13 at 21:35
    
@nixda: You can choose to save Word macros in a specific document or the global Normal.dot template. It has supported this for ages now. –  Karan Jan 3 '13 at 21:52
    
@karan I just wanted to note that this shortcut will be available in every word document due to the fact that normal.dot is selected as default. Nothing more. –  nixda Jan 3 '13 at 22:10
