Part I: Everyday Word Processing > Managing Documents and Files

Chapter 4. Managing Documents and Files

  • View files and file information

    Working with just a file name, even a long file name, may leave you in doubt about the contents. You can preview a file before opening it, as well as review summary information you've typed to help you identify a document.

  • Manage files

    Organizing files is much easier when you can duplicate, move, delete, and rename files or folders from within Word's Open or Save As dialog boxes. You can even create a new folder with the click of a button in the Save As dialog box.

  • Find files

    As hard disk capacity gets larger and networks span further, it becomes more difficult than ever before to find the document you want. Word's Find feature enables you to quickly search for a file by name, content, or approximate modification date.

Although word processors undoubtedly offer a tremendous advantage over the typewriter for producing written documents, one fact remains: You accumulate Word files as fast as you gathered paper files before the advent of the word processor. Word 97, however, can help you to find and manage these files, using the options in the Open dialog box.
