INTRODUCTION

All of Word's menu commands that are followed by an ellipses (…) lead to a dialog box, most of which give you options for specifying exactly what you want to do before Word actually performs the command. Once you've made your selections in a dialog box, you click the OK button to tell Word to carry out the command. If you decide not to go ahead with a command, you can back out of the dialog box by clicking the Cancel button. Here you take a quick look at the elements commonly found in dialog boxes, using the Print dialog box as an example.


Click the Pages option button to select it. The text box to its right lets you type the page numbers you want to print.

Click the up or down spinner arrows to the right of the Number of copies box to increase or decrease the number of copies printed.

Click the Collate check box twice to clear the check box and then mark it again.

Click the Cancel button to close the Print dialog box without printing your document.
