        I have noticed that consistency is fading away with keyboard shortcuts. You'll see some other posts here about this as well. But it's more and more difficult to remember whether you use tab, or arrows or alt in combination with arrows, or F6 to navigate new interfaces in Windows 10. Screen reader keystrokes can also be challenging to remember, but Narrator's help is truly great. Because Windows still uses alt and control together with a character keystroke to access a shortcut, Microsoft should try avoiding using alt control with keystrokes to access features in programs. For example alt-Ctrl-N is used to turn on draft view in Word; what was wrong with alt-SHFT or SHFT-CTRL-N?
        Also it's getting a bit deprecated in your knowledge base articles to suggest that if one remembers the keystrokes from Office 2003 they still can be used in office 2016. Let's just clean up the keystrokes, make them consistent across Office 2016 and Windows 10 and publish a thorough and easily accessible list!
