In fact, it’s so powerful that it rivals software made especially for desktop publishing. As with other Office Applications, its interface includes: the Title Bar, the Standard Toolbar, the Formatting Toolbar, and the Status Bar. MS-Word – The Interface  The remainder of the screen is basically like a blank sheet of paper upon which you can create documents. Using Word at its most basic level to create short letters, memos and faxes is extraordinarily simple (continued)…. MS-Word – The Interface  You just type text into the Word document and then press the Print button on the Standard Toolbar to send your document to the printer. Word features Automatic Text Wrapping, a Find-and-Replace utility, and the ability to Cut, Copy and Paste, both within the document and between documents and other programs. MS-Word – The Interface  To improve the presentation of your Word documents, you can use the editing and formatting tools to insert Headers and Footers, Page Breaks, Page Numbers, and Dates. Word also includes a number of other features that can enhance your ability to present your thoughts in a formal way. MS-Word – The Interface  For example, you can create lengthy reports and books that incorporate embedded pictures, graphics, charts, tables, and other objects. You can work with columns and set tabs to align text. You can print your document in Portrait (vertical) or Landscape (horizontal) orientation. (continued)…. MS-Word - The Interface  If you’re using a PC, the files that you create in Word include the *.doc extension, by default. (If you’re using a Mac computer, no such extension is needed). Word can also save your documents as plain text (*.txt), HTML (*.htm), Rich Text Format (*.rtf), or formats that can be read by previous versions of Word, or by competing products, such as WordPerfect MS-Word – The Interface  Now that you have a basic understanding of what Word can do for you, you’re ready to move on to other Office Applications.
