Where is the command for "widows and orphans"?

Widows and orphans is the term I'm familiar with, at least. What I'm meaning
is the command to keep hyphenated words together so as not to leave a hyphen
dangling at the end of a line, but have it wrap the entire hyphenated word to
the next line.

I'd appreciate it if you could steer me in the right direction.

Thanks!

Not actually a widows and orphans issue per se, but you can insert a
nonbreaking hyphen with Ctrl+Shift+Hyphen.
