Retrieving Local and Shared Documents

The poet William Wordsworth once claimed that he wrote his best works in a single sitting. But most of us don’t work that way—instead, we return to documents time and again for one reason or another as well as often collaborate and review information with others while we work. Therefore, Word provides a few techniques you can use to retrieve and share existing documents. This section lays out the various document retrieval options—you can sift through and determine which method best suits your working style.

Displaying Existing Documents

As with other files in Windows, you can retrieve documents in a variety of ways using the Windows interface. For example, you can open a document by choosing the Documents option from the Start menu, opening My Computer, navigating to a document within your browser, and so forth. In Word, the best sources for retrieving Word documents are the Open dialog box and the Getting Started task pane.
