Part I: Microsoft Office XP Basics > Working with Programs

Chapter 2. Working with Programs

Now that you know how to start the various Microsoft Office XP programs, you’re ready to learn how to juggle the different applications you can have open in Office XP at one time. The tasks we cover in this chapter aren’t difficult, but they are necessary. You’ll learn that the trick is to become coordinated, as you do when learning to drive a stick shift, so that you’ll have the program you want open on the screen when you want it. Once you’ve mastered these procedural basics, you’ll be ready to move on to the more exciting tasks ahead.

One of the great advantages of working with the Office XP suite of programs is that many of the basic tasks you perform—opening and saving files, printing documents and reports, and using the Clipboard—are the same from program to program. That means you can learn a task once and use it many times (there’s that “working smarter” theme again).
