Part 6. Using Microsoft Word

Part 6. Using Microsoft Word

When you want to write a letter, fire off a quick memo, create a report, or create 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 with both Microsoft Works Suite and Microsoft Office. You can use Word for all your writing needs–from basic letters to fancy newsletters, and everything in between.

You start Word either from the Windows Start menu (by selecting Start, All Programs, Microsoft Word) or, if you're using Microsoft Works, from the Works Task Launcher. When Word launches, a blank document appears in the Word workspace. Word can display your document in one of five views: Normal, Web Layout, Print Layout, Outline, and Reading Layout. 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 menu.
