  • 1. Word 2007 Basics
    September 2009
  • 2. Welcome!
    In this session you will receive a brief overview of Microsoft Word 2007 in the workplace including:
    Introduction to the new Microsoft 2007 interface
    Text selecting techniques
    Introduction to style selection
    Text formatting techniques
    Header and footer insertion
    File Open, Save and Print
    Watermark insertion
  • 3. Open Microsoft Word 2007
    Starting Word could be different depending on what computer you are using.
    • You could have an icon on the desktop that you can double-click.
    • 4. Or you could choose Start from the Task Bar and then choose All Programs, Microsoft Office, Microsoft Office Word 2007.
  • Remember, this is what the old version of Word looked like…
    Menu Bar
    Formatting Toolbar
    Standard Toolbar
    Selection Bar – Invisible narrow strip along the left
    edge of the window used to select text quickly.
    Task Pane
    Status Bar
  • 5. Microsoft Word 2007 has an improved navigation system that is easier to use than ever before. As you will see, the Ribbon is a set of tools across the top of the Word screen arranged in tabs and groups.
    Where is the File menu????
  • 6. What is new…
  • 7. There are three basic components to the Ribbon…
  • 8. For example, the Home tab includes the Clipboard, Font, Paragraph,
    Styles and Editing groups.
  • 9. When you see a small arrow in the lower right corner of a group, it means there are more options available for the group.
    Click the arrow (called the Dialog Box Launcher) and you will see a window with more commands available. For example, the Font group has more options available such as superscript and emboss.
  • 10. Have you ever wasted time trying out different fonts and colors because you wanted to find the “perfect look” for your document? You select a font, font color, or size but the option you select turns out not to be what you want, so you undo and try again, and again, and again until you find what you want.
    Now you can see a live preview of your choice before you make a selection. To use live preview, rest the mouse pointer on an option. Your document will change to show you what that option would look like BEFORE you actually choose the option.
  • 11. Let’s explore the interface changes and the editing options in Microsoft Word 2007…

  • 12. Adding Text
    To enter text, just start typing! It is that easy…. Word inserts the text you type at the insertion point. If you press a wrong key, use the Delete Key to erase the mistake. Word automatically starts a new line when you reach the end of the current line. This is called “word wrap”. Do not press Enter at the end of a line. Press Enter only at the end of paragraphs.
