There are a lot of shortcuts in Word, but personally I think the most practical one is F4 in daily office work. The main function of it is redoing your last action, which could replace the function of format painter, copy & paste, and also quickly help us with plenty of unnecessary repetitive work.

 1. Switch Color

When you want to highlight some content in the document, no need to switch color repeatedly, just select the specified text, and change the color for it as an example. For the rest of it, simply select them and press F4 to redo this action.
