Download WOPD.

  • Standard: Start Programs Microsoft WORD
  • Through the Microsoft OFFICE panel
  • Through the shortcut of the program.
  • By opening a WORD document.

Screen view.

The WORD program window contains standard window controls:

  • title;
  • Menu bar;
  • Toolbars – Standard and Formatting;
  • Scroll bars;
  • Status bar.

The menu bar of the WORD program consists of the following sections:

File – work with document files.

Edit – editing the document.

View – setting the program window and document type.

Insert – insert pictures, diagrams, mathematical formulas, non-standard symbols and other objects into the document.

Format – document formatting (setting font, paragraph, style, etc.).

Service – service functions (spell check, WORD settings).

Table – work with tables.

Window – work with document windows.

? – reference information about WORD.

Usually on the screen we see two toolbars Standard and Formatting. They contain buttons for quick access to menu commands. When you hover over any button, a tooltip appears and a brief description of that command appears in the status bar.

Let’s consider some commands of the first three menu items, studying the corresponding buttons in parallel.

File menu.

Create. When this menu item is selected, a dialog box opens in which we can select a template for the created document: General, Letters and Faxes, Notes, Other Documents, WEB pages. The New button on the toolbar quickly creates a regular document.

Open . When this menu item is selected, a dialog box opens in which we can find the desired document in order to read, correct or print it. This menu item corresponds to the Open button on the toolbar.

Close. This command closes an open document. It corresponds to the y button in the upper right corner of the document window.

Save. This command is for saving the currently opened document. When this command is selected for the first time or when the save button is clicked, a dialog box appears in which we can specify the name of the file in which the document will be saved and, if necessary, the folder. Selecting this command again will save the document in the same file.

Save As… If you need to make a copy of the document or save it to another location (for example, on a floppy disk), then use this command. In the dialog box, you need to specify a different name or path.

Page settings. This command sets the page parameters for placing the document on it. The dialog box consists of 4 tabs: Margins, Paper Size, Paper Source, and Layout. Let’s consider the first two. On the Margins tab, indents are set from the edges of the paper to the beginning of the text. The distance is indicated in cm. On the Paper Size tab, we can select a standard size or specify it in cm (if the printer allows it) and the orientation of the text on the sheet – Portrait or Landscape.

Preview. This command shows how the document will look when printed. It corresponds to a button on the toolbar.

Seal. This command sets the printing options, for example, you can specify the page numbers to be printed, the number of copies, and so on. The Print button on the document bar prints the entire document, only one copy.

Edit menu.

Cancel . Sequentially cancels the performed actions and the entered text.

Repeat or return . Redoes the last action or returns what we canceled with the undo command. These commands have corresponding buttons on the UI.

Cut, Copy, Paste – work with the clipboard.

Select All – Selects the entire document.

View menu.

The first five commands determine the appearance of the document on the computer screen:

Normal. In this case, we see a large endless white sheet with text on it. In this mode, WORD works faster, but it is not very convenient.

Electronic document . The screen is divided into two parts, the document is placed on the right side, and comments on it are placed on the left.

Page layout. The most convenient mode. In it, the document looks like it will look when printed, moreover, there are rulers on the top and left in which you can set paragraph indents.

Structure. This mode is convenient to use if the document contains various sections, chapters, etc.

main document. This mode is used when you have to work with large text consisting of several files, for example, with a book. It allows you to combine several files into one whole.

Toolbars. When accessing this menu item, another submenu appears, which contains a list of all possible toolbars. If you check the box to the left of the corresponding panel, then it will be displayed on the screen.

Ruler. By checking or unchecking this command, we can display or remove rulers from the screen.

Entering and editing text.

The text is entered from the keyboard at the location of the blinking cursor. The mouse pointer in the form of the Latin letter I is not the place to enter text. With it, you can move the cursor by clicking the mouse button at the desired location in the text.

To insert characters or words, you need to move the cursor to the desired location and simply type the text or characters. The rest of the text will move to the right.

To delete a character to the left of the cursor, press BACKSPACE, and to the right – DEL.
