Hour 1. Getting Acquainted with Word > Working with Task Panes

Working with Task Panes

By default, when you start Word the Getting Started task pane appears at the right edge of your Word window to give you a quick way to open a document, start a new document, or ask for help (refer back to Figure 1.6). This task pane is one of many that appear automatically when you perform certain actions, such as starting Word, inserting clip art in your document, or beginning a mail merge. Task panes typically contain information and options that are relevant to what you are doing. They give you a handy way of accomplishing tasks without leaving your document.

If you'd rather not see the Getting Started task pane on startup, choose Tools, Options to display the Options dialog box. Click the View tab, clear the Startup Task Pane check box, and click OK.
