Using Task Panes

Open the Tools menu, choose Letters and Mailings, and select Mail Merge.

The Mail Merge task pane appears at the right edge of the Word window to walk you through the steps of producing a mass mailing. Click the Other Task Panes button.

A list of the other available task panes appears. Choose Help.

INTRODUCTION

As you use Word, you may periodically notice a narrow vertical pane at the right edge of your Word window. By default, these task panes come up automatically when you perform certain actions, such as inserting clip art in your document or beginning a mail merge. You can also deliberately display any of the task panes whenever you'd like. In this task, you learn the basics of working with all task panes. In later tasks, you learn how to use the panes that are relevant to specific tasks.


The Word Help task pane appears. If you see a down arrow at the bottom of a task pane, you can point to it to move more of the contents into view.

Point to the up arrow at the top of the pane to scroll back to the top of a task pane.

Click the Back and Forward buttons to view recently used task panes. Click the Home button to display the Getting Started task pane.

When you are ready to close a task pane, click the Close (×) button in the upper-right corner of the pane.
