Insert current date and time quickly

If you need to use current date or time stamp, Word provides two shortcut keys that do this for you.

    Alt+Shift+D    - Current date;

    Alt+Shift+T    - Current time.

To avoid changes of current date or/and time in the completed document, you can use Cut + Keep Text Only combination:

    1.   Select pasted Current Date or/and Current Time.

    2.   Do one of the following:

  • On the Home tab, in the Clipboard group, click the Cut:

  • Press Ctrl+X.

    3.   On the Home tab, in the Clipboard group, in the Paste list choose Keep Text Only:
