Issuing Commands

Word enables you to “talk” to it in a variety of ways. The exact methods that you use are a matter of personal preference. If you like reading text instead of deciphering tiny pictures on toolbar buttons, you probably prefer using the menus. If, on the other hand, you are visually oriented and like using a mouse, you may find yourself using toolbar buttons most of the time. Perhaps you're a fast typist and hate to take your hands away from the keyboard to reach for the mouse. If this is the case, you may come to rely almost completely on keyboard shortcuts. Experiment with all of the methods described here and see which ones you like best.

Working with Menus

The menu bar at the top of the Word window contains nine pull-down menus—File, Edit, View, and so on. You can issue all of the commands in Word via these menus. Chances are, you use toolbar buttons or keyboard shortcuts for many commands, but you can always fall back on the menus if you forget the alternate methods.
