Microsoft Word Training Video

Microsoft Word Training Video Microsoft Word is Microsoft's flagship word processing software. It was first released in 1983 under the name Multi-Tool Word for XENIX systems. Many versions of word were later written to fulfill their own functions. Beginning with the 2003 version, Word's identity was emphasized as a component within the Office suite. Microsoft began calling it Microsoft Office Word instead of merely Microsoft Word. The latest release is Word 2007.
As you see, technology is always changing just about everyday. It's important to keep with industry changes whether small or large. You never know when a new Microsoft Word may become useful and can appeal to your very own business needs until you have a full understanding of its functions.

What's new in Microsoft Office Word 2007


Microsoft Office Word 2007 helps you produce professional-looking documents by providing a comprehensive set of tools for creating and formatting your document in the new Microsoft Office Fluent user interface. Rich review, commenting, and comparison capabilities help you quickly gather and manage feedback from colleagues. Advanced data integration ensures that documents stay connected to important sources of business information. In addition, you can convert your Word documents to PDF or XPS, go beyond documents, and recover from computer problems. Recovering from computer problems is a very special function of the new software. Let me introduce some of features of the function to you:

The 2007 Microsoft Office system provides improved tools for recovering your work in the event of a problem in Office Word 2007.

     Office Diagnostics
Microsoft Office Diagnostics is a series of diagnostic tests that can help you to discover why your computer is crashing. The diagnostic tests can solve some problems directly and may identify ways that you can solve other problems. Microsoft Office Diagnostics replaces the following Microsoft Office 2003 features: Detect and Repair, and Microsoft Office Application Recovery.

     Program recovery
Office Word 2007 has improved capabilities to help avoid losing work when the program closes abnormally. Whenever possible, Word tries to recover some aspects of the state of the program after Word restarts.
For example, you are working on several files at the same time. Each file is open in a different window with specific data visible in each window. Word crashes. When you restart Word, it opens the files and restores the windows to the way they were before Word crashed.
Obviously, with these great functions, Microsoft Word has become a powerful word processor for document creation. As with all feature- rich applications, there are a large number of menu items and commands available to you in the program. Over a time of training by video, you will discover certain short-cuts that you resort to again and again, which help you get familiar and used of its benefits in your work. In this article, we focus on some of the most important tips and tricks that you can use in making you more productive in using Word.

    How to convert your Word documents to PDF or XPS
1. Click the Microsoft Office Button, point to the arrow next to Save As, and then click PDF or XPS.
2. In the File Name list, type or select a name for the document.
3. In the Save as type list, click PDF.
4. If you want to open the file immediately after saving it, select the Open file after publishing check box. This check box is available only if you have a PDF reader installed on your computer.
5. Next to Optimize for, do one of the following, depending on whether file size or print quality is more important to you:
- If the document requires high print quality, click Standard (publishing online and printing).
- If the print quality is less important than file size, click Minimum size (publishing online).

    How to run Office Diagnostics
Before running Office Diagnostics, and to ensure all the tests can run successfully, we recommend that you do the following:
- Plan to run the tests during a time when you can stop using your system. In particular, you should avoid using the system while the Memory Diagnostic is running.
- Close as many running programs as you can.
Do the following in these 2007 Microsoft Office system programs:
Access, Excel, PowerPoint, or Word
1- Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Access Options, Excel Options, PowerPoint Options, or Word Options.
2- Click Resources.
3- Click Diagnose, click Continue, and then click Start Diagnostics.

Microsoft Word Training Video Besides, you can create a more interesting background for your Microsoft Word document by using watermarks. Watermarks are light-colored text or graphics that are displayed behind the main body of the text. Watermarks can be AutoShapes, drawing objects or images. In order to print a watermark, you must first insert it into a header or footer and then place it anywhere in the page where you'd like it to appear.
    1. To insert a watermark:
- Click on View - Header or Footer
- On the Header and Footer toolbar, click Show/Hide Document Text to hide the text and graphics in the main document
- Insert a graphic (a drawing object such as an AutoShape, clip art, WordArt, or picture) or a text box
- On the Header and Footer toolbar, click Close
To view a watermark as it will appear on the printed page, click on View - Print Layout or click on File - Print Preview.
If the watermark interferes with the legibility of the text on the page, you can lighten the object you used to create the watermark.
    2. To format a watermark:
- Click on View - Header and Footer
- On the Header and Footer toolbar, click Show/Hide Document Text to hide the text and graphics in the main document
- Select the graphic or text box
- Follow the instructions below to format a graphic or to format a text box
    3. To format a graphic:
- Click on Format and then depending on the type of graphic click on AutoShape, Object or Picture
- Your formatting options vary depending on the type of graphic you have inserted. For example, if you've inserted a picture, click on Image Control - Picture tab - Color: Watermark to format the picture with preset brightness and contrast settings that work best for watermarks
- You can also adjust the picture's brightness and contrast manually by using the Brightness and Contrast slide controls
- To format the graphic so that document text flows above it instead of wrapping around it, click on Format and then depending on the type of graphic click on AutoShape, Object or Picture. On the Layout tab, click Behind text
    4. To format the text in the text box:
- Select the text in the text box
- Click on Format - Font
- Select the options you want. To rotate the text, click on Format - Text Direction and then select the option you want. Because the text box is a drawing object, you can use options on the Drawing toolbar to format its borders, background color and more.

You can create a custom toolbar to speed up your work
Word provides many toolbars to enable you to perform a variety of tasks, but the sheer number of toolbars visible at any one time can be a bit disorienting. To work more efficiently, create a customized toolbar with only the set of commands that you think you need.
Click on View | Toolbars | Customize. The Customize popup will appear. Click on the Toolbar tab and then click on New. Name your toolbar, click OK, and a blank toolbar will appear. Then click on the Commands tab. You will see a list for Categories on the left and one for Commands on the right. Go through the list of Categories, and for each one, choose the commands you need and drag them down to your blank toolbar. Do this for all Categories and commands, and when you’re done, drag the customized toolbar to the top of your screen. It will replace any other toolbars.
