How can I go to the last place that I was working?

Pick up where you left off in MS Word

Each time you open a Word document, by default the cursor will appear at the start of the document. If you're working on a large document, this can be time consuming as well as inconvenient.

Word provides a Go Back To command which will automatically take you back to the last place in a document where you made a modification.

To activate this, hold down the Shift key and press F5.
