Requires: Microsoft Excel 97

1. On a new Worksheet, Press F5

3. Press the tab key
4. Hold Ctrl-Shift
5. Click on the Chart Wizard toolbar button
6. Use mouse to fly around - Right button forward/ Left button reverse

There's more... in Word 97 but I've forgotten how to get it. I know you type the word Blue and change the font to colour blue and bold but where to from there I have forgotten.

Word 2000 and Excel 2000 also have hidden features but I've forgotten it as well.

Reminds me of the hidden but disabled function in Win 98 - I think I read this ages ago in PCWorld mag - Click Start, Settings, then hold CTRL and click Taskbar & Start Menu. This brings up the Taskbar Properties, but with a third tab called Deskbar Options, but with no functionality! I'd love to know what they'd planned to put in there.
