Creating, Saving, and Closing Documents

Creating a Word document is as simple as typing text. The insertion point indicates where the text will appear in the document. When the text you’re typing goes beyond the right margin, Word “wraps” the text to the next line. Because of this word wrap feature, which is common in word-processing and desktop-publishing programs, you press only to start a new paragraph, not a new line.


The text you type appears in the document window and is stored by the computer, but only temporarily. If you want to keep a copy of the text, you must save the document as a file. Specifying a name and location for the file ensures that you can retrieve the file later.
