Starting Word

Click the Start button.

If you see Microsoft Office Word in the main Start menu, click it.

If you don't see Microsoft Word in the main Start menu, point to All Programs, Microsoft Office, and then Microsoft Office Word 2003.

The Word window opens and a Word button appears on the taskbar.

INTRODUCTION

When you want to use Word to create or revise a document, you must ask Windows to start it for you. Once Word has been started, you can tell it is open, even if it's hidden behind other windows, because a button bearing the Word icon appears on the taskbar at the bottom of your screen. An additional taskbar button appears for each Word document that you start or open.


Depending on your setup, you may have a shortcut icon for Word on your Windows desktop. If you do, you can double-click it to start the program.

You may see a button with the Word icon on the left side of your taskbar. Clicking this button also starts Word.

You can also double-click any Word document icon, either on your Windows desktop or in a folder, to start Word and open the document.
