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 that you'll use toolbar buttons or keyboard shortcuts for many commands, but you can always fall back on the menus if you forget the alternate methods.

Menu Basics

To display a menu, click its name in the menu bar. For example, to display the Format menu, click Format in the menu bar, as shown in Figure 1.7. Then click a command in the menu to instruct Word to carry it out. If you want to close a menu without issuing a command, click anywhere outside the menu in the text area. (If your Format menu looks different from what you see in Figure 1.7, you may be using full menus, not personalized menus. See “Using Personalized Menus” later in this hour for more information.)
