In Microsoft word 2019, if I want to paste using: Ctrl+Shift+v, that doesn't work, what is the new shortcut?

  • You can try Ctrl+Win+v. If that doesn't work try to use paste and then pressing Ctrl for paste options and then press T for keep text only. – Aulis Ronkainen Nov 18 '18 at 19:14
  • @AulisRonkainen the first option does not work, the second option works, thank you. Could you please write an answer so that I accept it and close the question. – Lynob Nov 18 '18 at 19:22
  • Very good, you're welcome! I'll write an answer. – Aulis Ronkainen Nov 18 '18 at 19:26

There seems to be no direct shortcut for that, but here's something you can do:

Paste text (Ctrl+V) and then press Ctrl for paste options to appear and then press T for pasting the text with "Keep text only" paste option.

The result will be pasted text without formatting.

This works in older versions of MS Word too.
