Move rows in MS Word using the keyboard

Hello Readers!

As you might have figured out from the topic header, this nice little trick will help you to move rows of data in Microsoft Word using the keyboard, just the keyboard.

If you can't make out what I'm trying to say, check the video below.

How can this be done?

Just Press and Hold the ALT + SHIFT keys and use the Up or Down arrow keys to move the rows up or down respectively.

You can also move multiple rows at once.
