With the Table at the top of the page, move curser to top left of tabel; look for the "Anchor" icon to appear near outside of table at the top left corner; move curser over the Anchor (curser will change to 4 headed arrow); click and drag the Anchor down a little. This method can be used to position a table almost anywhere.
Finally, right clicking on the Anchor icon will bring up context sensitive menu that is closer than mouse-driving around the screen and toolbars.
Jeez, it's gotta be bad when I'm too lazy to drive a mouse a few extra inches . But seriously, sometimes when / if I'm in a hurry and working AFAP (As Fast As Possible) saving a few seconds here and there is a good thing.
Also having the "Show/Hide" formatting characters (Ctrl+*) is my SOP for Word use. The formatting characters do not print on the document, and knowing what's being formatted-where&how is useful... but if you're sending the doc to someone else, be sure to turn them off before sending the doc.
