Start & Explore (Tabs and Groups)

In this exercise, you’ll start Word and explore the tabs and groups on the ribbon. Along the way, you’ll work with galleries and the Live Preview feature. 

1. On the Start menu, click All Programs, click Microsoft Office, and then click Microsoft Word 2010. 

The Word program window opens in Print Layout view, displaying a blank document. On the ribbon, the Home tab is active. Buttons related to working with document content are organized on this tab in five groups: Clipboard, Font, Paragraph, Styles, and Editing. 

2. Point to each button on the Home tab. Word displays information about the button in a ScreenTip.

The ScreenTip for the Format Painter button displays the button’s name, keyboard shortcut, and function.

3. Click the Insert tab, and then explore its buttons.

Buttons related to all the items you can insert into the document are organized on this tab in seven groups: Pages, Tables, Illustrations, Links, Header & Footer, Text, and Symbols. 

4. Click the Page Layout tab, and then explore its buttons. Buttons related to the appearance of the document are organized on this tab in five groups: Themes, Page Setup, Page Background, Paragraph, and Arrange.

5. In the Page Setup group, display the ScreenTip for the Margins button. The ScreenTip tells you how you can adjust the margins.

6. In the lower-right corner of the Page Setup group, click the Page Setup dialog box launcher. 
The Page Setup dialog box opens.

7. Click Cancel to close the dialog box.

8. In the Themes group, click the Themes button. The group expands to display a gallery of the available themes.

10. In the Page Background group, click the Page Color button, and then in the top row of the Theme Colors palette, point to each box in turn.

The blank document page shows a live preview of what it will look like if you click the color you are pointing to. You can see the effect of the selection without actually applying it. 

11. Press Esc to close the palette without making a selection. 

12. Click the References tab, and then explore its buttons. Buttons related to items you can add to documents are organized on this tab in six groups: Table Of Contents, Footnotes, Citations & Bibliography, Captions, Index, and Table Of Authorities. You will usually add these items to longer documents, such as reports.

13. Click the Mailings tab, and then explore its buttons. Buttons related to creating mass mailings are organized on this tab in five groups: Create, Start Mail Merge, Write & Insert Fields, Preview Results, and Finish.

14. Click the Review tab, and then explore its buttons. Buttons related to proofreading documents, working in other languages, adding comments, tracking and resolving document changes, and protecting documents are organized on this tab in seven groups: Proofing, Language, Comments, Tracking, Changes, Compare, and Protect.

15. Click the View tab, and then explore its buttons. Buttons related to changing the view and other aspects of the display are organized on this tab in five groups: Document Views, Show, Zoom, Window, and Macros.

16. On the ribbon, click the File tab, which is color-coded to match the logo color of the Word program.

The Backstage view of Word 2010 is displayed. Commands related to managing documents (such as creating, saving, and printing) are available in this view.

17. If the Info page is not already displayed in the Backstage view, click Info in the left pane. On the Info page of the Backstage view, the middle pane provides options to control who can work on the document, to remove properties (associated information), and to access versions of the document automatically saved by Word. The right pane displays the associated properties, as well as dates of modification, creation, and printing, and the names of people who created and edited the document.

The Info page displays and provides commands for changing the information attached to a document.

18. In the left pane, click Recent. The Recent page displays the names of the documents you recently worked on. By default a maximum of 20 names is displayed. You can change this number on the Advanced page of the Word Options dialog box. 

19. In the left pane, click New. The New page displays all the templates on which you can base a new document. 

20. In the left pane, click Print. The Print page displays all print-related commands and provides a pane for previewing the current document as it will appear when printed. 

21. In the left pane, click Share. The Share page displays all the commands related to making the current document available to other people. 

22. In the left pane, click Help. The Help page displays all the ways you can get help and support for Word.

The right pane of the Help page displays your Office edition, its version number, and your product ID, which you will need if you contact Microsoft Product Support.
