  • The first impression and view of a document is very important for the reader. The options listed underneath are the most important ones. These can make the document nice looking, but also very bad. A professional document should have a standard font (like Times New Roman or Arial), appropriate size(normal text size 12),and black color. The layout of the text should make the reader comfortable – it should be easy to read. In thesis, or other large documents, the text is often aligned to both the left and right margins. This creates a clean look at both sides of the text. Additional extra space are put in between words as necessary.Text: Font, size, color, bold/italic/underlineLayout: Bullets, numbering, alignment, line spacing Home  [choose formatting]

  • Overview: A hands-on introduction Excel 2007 has a new look! It’s got the familiar worksheets you’re accustomed to, but with some changes. Notably, the old look of menus and buttons at the top of the window has been replaced with the Ribbon.
  • More commands, butonly when you need them The commands on the Ribbon are the ones you use the most.Instead of showing every command all the time,Excel 2007 shows some commands only when youmay need them, in response to an action you take.So don’t worry if you don’t see all the commandsyou need at all times. Take the first steps, and thecommands you need will be at hand.
  • More options,if you need them Sometimes an arrow, called the Dialog Box Launcher, appears in the lower-right corner of a group. This means more options are available for the group.Click the Dialog Box Launcher , and you’ll see adialog box or task pane. The picture shows anexample:1 On the Home tab, click the arrow in the Font group.2 The Format Cells dialog box opens, with superscript and other options related to fonts.
  • What about favoritekeyboard shortcuts? If you rely on the keyboard more than the mouse, you’ll want to know that the Ribbon design comes with new shortcuts.This change brings two big advantages overprevious versions of Excel:• There are shortcuts for every single button on the Ribbon.• Shortcuts often require fewer keys.
  • What about favoritekeyboard shortcuts? The new shortcuts also have a new name: Key Tips. You press ALT to make Key Tips appear.For example, here’s how to use Key Tips to centertext: 1 Press ALT to make the Key Tips appear.2 Press H to select the Home tab.3 Press A, then C to center the selected text.
  • A new view Not only the Ribbon is new in Excel 2007. Page Layout view is new, too.If you’ve worked in Print Layout view in MicrosoftOffice Word, you’ll be glad to see Excel with similaradvantages.
  • Working with differentscreen resolutions Everything described so far applies if your screen is set to high resolution and the Excel window is maximized. If not, things look different.When and how do things look different?• When the Excel window isn’t maximized. Some groups will display only the group name.• With Tablet PCs. On those with smaller screens, the Ribbon adjusts to show smaller versions of tabs and groups.
  • For your project  Mean (average)  Percentile / quartile  Maximum / minimum  Standard deviation
  • Microsoft Outlook 2007 What’s New?
  • Overview: A new version of Outlook Look out! There’s a new version of Outlook. It has a whole new look along with new features. But don’t worry, that doesn’t mean you’ll need to spend a lot of time learning a new program. Instead, the new design and new features will help you more efficiently and easily accomplish the tasks you do in Outlook every day.
  • What’s changed and why The first time you create a message in Outlook 2007 (or open one you receive), you’ll see the Ribbon. It’s the band across the top of the window.One of the most dramatic changes in Outlook,the Ribbon gives Outlook its new look.But as you get up to speed, you’ll see that thechange is more than visual—it’s there to help youget things done more easily and with fewer steps.
  • Introducing the Ribbon Here’s a new e-mail message. The Ribbon is at the top of the window. The Ribbon is visible each time you create or edit something in Outlook.Why the new system? Microsoft carefullyresearched how people use commands in Outlook.As a result of that research, some Outlookcommands are now more prominent, andcommon commands are displayed and grouped inways that make them easy to find and use.
  • A closer look at the Ribbon To better help you learn how to use the Ribbon, here’s a guide to its basic arrangement.1 Tabs: The Ribbon is made up of different tabs, each related to specific kinds of work you do in Outlook.2 Groups: Each tab has several groups that show related items together.3 Commands: A command is a button, a box to enter information, or a menu.
  • The Ribbon shows what you need Once again, you’ll encounter the Ribbon when you take certain actions such as creating messages, calendar entries, or contacts.The Ribbon shows tabs and commands appropriatefor what you’re doing.That is, the tabs on the Ribbon will differ dependingon the area of Outlook you’re working in.
