In Microsoft Word, recording a macro is just a double-click away.
Normally, to record a macro in Word, you’d click on the Tools menu, then click Macro, then click Record New Macro.
A much quicker way is to double-click on the REC box in the status bar, at the bottom of the Word window.
The Record Macro dialog box immediately opens, and you can begin recording.
Double-click the REC box again, to turn off the recorder.
There are other double-click shortcuts in the status bar:
TRK: Toggle the Track Changes feature
EXT: Toggle the Extend Selection feature
OVR: Toggle the Overtype feature (does anyone use that?)
Page Number (or any area in the left end of the Status Bar): Open the Go To dialog box
