Chapter 9. Creating and Editing Word Documents > Starting or Opening a Document

Starting or Opening a Document

Word is designed primarily to create printed documents such as letters, reports, and newsletters, but you can create other types of documents with it, too. For example, you can even create Web pages with Word. Regardless of the type of document, as with other Office programs, you need to start by either opening an existing document or creating a new one.

Starting a New Document

When you first start Word, it opens a Getting Started task pane (see Figure 9.1). Click the Create a New Document link to open the New Document task pane (see Figure 9.2). This pane shows recently used documents, some links to help you quickly start a new document, and links to online information about Word and the other Office applications.
