Show or hide hidden characters in MS Word

Word contains a large number of hidden characters such as spaces and paragraph markers and while sometimes they can be useful to view, at other times they can be annoying.

To toggle between showing and hiding these characters, hold down the Ctrl and Shift keys and press the 8 key (you cannot use the numeric keypad for this shortcut).
