Press SH1T + F1.

I accidentally type this all the time. I haven't to my knowledge sent
anything out that way, but I really ought to set up an autocorrect entry
in Word for that . . . .

My boss caught one of my frequent mis-typings of 'form' for 'from' the
other day.

Bad enough. But not as bad as this one I (thank heavens!) caught myself:

'asses' for assess'

Any other ridculous boffos that overdependence on spell-check scanning
rather than actually reading can net you?
