Chapter 19. Word Processing > Creating Documents

Creating Documents

In order to get started using a word processor, you must first create a fresh blank document. This is like loading a sheet of paper into a typewriter. Some word processors require the user to create a new document and to name it. However, most allow you to wait until you save the document for the first time before assigning it a name.

Typing

When a new document has been created, you can begin typing and entering data. Some types of word processors, such as those for the Macintosh or Windows environment, allow you to begin typing immediately. As you type on the keyboard, the letters and words appear on the display screen. The text or data you type are stored in the computer's memory temporarily, until the document is saved or discarded or the power is turned off.
