When it comes to editing a long document, any shortcut available is much welcomed to make you work faster.
Locating your word count is an easy task to do and there are two ways to do it. The first option is to go to Tools in the menu bar and select Word count. A small window will appear that will list the amount of pages, words, characters, and characters excluding spaces. The second way to access this information is through the keyboard shortcut: Command + Shift + C (on a Mac) or Ctrl + Shift + C (on a PC).
