Part I: Microsoft Office XP Basics

Part I: Microsoft Office XP Basics

Ready to get started using Microsoft Office XP? If so, you’re in the right place. This first part of the book helps you get comfortable with all the basics of Office XP. Chapter 1, “Getting to Know Microsoft Office XP,” starts right off with a discussion of the ways in which you launch the individual programs. We then talk about what you can do with the programs in Office XP and encourage you to think about the things you’d most like to try. Finally, the chapter gives a tour of the Office XP toolbar and the new features that Office XP offers.

In Chapter 2, “Working with Programs,” you begin to explore one of the great benefits of Office XP: the ease with which you can work with several different programs at once, sharing data and features. This chapter teaches the nitty-gritty of multiple window management—how to display multiple open windows, switch among them, and close them when you’re through. Also in this chapter, you learn how to perform some of the tasks that the applications have in common—tasks such as opening, saving, printing, and closing files.

By the time you reach Chapter 3, “Finding Help at Every Turn,” you’ll want to explore a little more on your own. In this chapter, you learn about the various ways you can find help in Office XP. Whether you prefer asking a quick question in the Ask A Question field, using conventional context-sensitive help, relying on one of the animated assistants, or going online to get in-depth help from the Microsoft Knowledge Base, this chapter gives you so many help choices that you’ll be certain that you never work alone in Office XP.
