Using Microsoft Word

When you want to write a letter, fire off a quick memo, create a fancy report, or publish a newsletter, you use a type of software program called a word processor. For most computer users, Microsoft Word is the word processing program of choice. Word is a full-featured word processor, and it's included on many new PCs and as part of the Microsoft Office suite and some versions of Microsoft Works. You can use Word for all your writing needs—from basic letters to fancy newsletters and everything in between.

You start Word from the Windows Start menu, by selecting Start, All Programs, Microsoft Office, Microsoft Office Word 2007. When Word launches, a blank document appears in the Word workspace. Word can display your document in one of five views: Print Layout, Full Screen Reading, Web Layout, Outline, and Draft. You select a view by using the View buttons at the bottom left of the Word window or by making a selection from the View ribbon.

Microsoft Word 2007 introduced a new interface that uses toolbar-like ribbons in place of the traditional menu bar and toolbar. Each ribbon contains buttons and controls for specific operations; for example, the Page Layout ribbon contains controls for Margins, Columns, Indent, Spacing, and the like.
