Inserting table rows

Adding rows to a Microsoft Word table is pretty easy to do, but this keyboard-based method might be the easiest of them all.

Take the following table as an example:

Microsoft Word sample table

Let’s say we want to add a row between “Memory” and “Price”. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Place the mouse pointer outside the right edge of the “Memory” table row – in other words, to the right of the “elephantine” cell.

  2. Press the Enter key on your keyboard.

Voilà! A brand new row!
