How can I move the cursor to the last edit position? This was possible in
Word 2003 with a keyboard combination.

The shortcut is exactly the same -- Shift+F5 is the shortcut for the GoBack
command.

But in Word 2007's new format (.docx), this won't work immediately after opening
the document to return to the last edit from a previous session. Microsoft
"forgot" to save the built-in bookmark that the GoBack command uses. It still
works if you save the document in Word 97-2003 (.doc) format.
