      Interface
               By: Ms. A. Shier
           For: TIK2O1-16 and -17
    Purpose: To show features of MS-Word
MS-Word – the Interface [1]

   MS-Word is a very powerful word
    processing program.
   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 [2]

   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 

MS-Word – The Interface [3]

   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 [4]

   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 [5]
   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 [6]

   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 [7]

   Now that you have a basic
    understanding of what Word can
    do for you, you’re ready to move
    on to other Office Applications.
   My next presentation will
    introduce you to the features of
    MS-Outlook.
