    This may help to restore all keyboard shortcuts to English default depending on the version of Word you are using.

    Open Word
    Click File then Options
    Click on Language on the left menuUnder the section titled Choose Display and Help Languages, Probably the default is Match Microsoft Windows
    Select English in each box, and click Set as Default
    Click on OK and restart Word
