Word 2010’s AutoCorrect feature can build common fractions for you. Actually, Word doesn’t build fractions as much as it pulls them from a set of existing fraction “characters.”
Word has only a few of those fraction characters. When you need your own, specific fraction, such as 3/64, you can create it on your own:
Step 1 Press Ctrl+Shift+= (the equal sign).
This keyboard shortcut enables the superscript command. (Superscript refers to a letter or number written above and to the side of another).
Step 2 Type the numerator — the top part of the fraction.
For example, type 3 for 3/64.
Step 3 Press Ctrl+Shift+= again.
This time, the key combo turns off superscripting.
Step 4 Type the slash mark (/). This slash mark becomes the divider in the fraction.
Step 5 Press Ctrl+= to turn on subscripting. Subscripting involves a letter or number below and to the side of another.
Step 6 Type the denominator — the bottom part of the fraction. The denominator in 3/64 is 64.
Step 7 Press Ctrl+= to turn off subscripting.
There’s your fraction.
