Word Overview Microsoft now refers to the contextual menus that open when you right-click an object as shortcut menus. I prefer to call them context menus for two reasons. First, it helps distinguish them from other types of shortcuts in Word and Windows. Second, it better describes their use, which is to provide quick access to commands based on context. 4. Screen split handle. Drag this slim handle down to split the document window into two separate panes. Changes made in one pane appear instantly in the other and selections can even be dragged between panes. This is a great way to work on two different parts of a document at once. Once the split is made, drag the handle to adjust the pane size. Drag the handle to its original location to close the extra pane. 5. View buttons. These buttons give you fast access to Word's four primary views: Normal, Web Layout, Print Layout, and Outline. Each of the following views is covered in detail in Chapter 6. · Normal provides a larger workspace, but you must rely on the status bar to see where you are in the document. One plus to working in Normal view is that page and section breaks are more visible, represented by a horizontal line and text indicating the type of break. · Web Layout shows any background color or graphic (Format Background) added to the page and shows the position of text and graphics as they should appear in a web browser.
