Pressing Tab moves cursor instead of indenting inside a Word table cell
Date Added: 1/18/2022

In Microsoft Word, when you're typing a list, you can normally press the Tab key to increase the indent level of your list.  However, if you are working inside a table cell and press Tab, instead of increasing your indent level, Word just moves your cursor to the next row of the table.

To increase the indent level inside a table cell, press [Shift]+[Alt]+[Right Arrow Key].  To decrease, press [Shift]+[Alt]+[Left Arrow Key].
