Introduction

Are you a visual learner? Do you like to see how to do things rather than read about them?

Office XP is the latest version of the popular Microsoft Office suite of programs. The new and improved Office XP features task panes that put the tools you work with the most just a quick click away, a document recovery feature that saves and recovers your work in case of a system crash, more collaboration features so that you can share your documents with others, and much more. How to Use Microsoft Office XP will help you learn this latest version of the software quickly.

This book has been written and assembled especially for visual learners who want to get up and running fast. It will show you how to use the basic features of the Office suite of programs in an easy-to-understand, straightforward manner. You'll learn

Each topic is presented visually, step by step, so that you can clearly see how to apply each feature to your own tasks. The illustrations show exactly what you'll see on your own computer screen, making it easy to follow along.

You can use the book as a tutorial, working through each section one task at a time, or as a reference, looking up specific features you want to learn about. There's no right or wrong way—use the method that best suits your own learning style.

In no time at all, you'll master all the basic tools needed to use the software for your own office or home needs.
