Welcome to the world of
Microsoft Word 2010. This new Picture
Yourself book from Cengage Learning will
help you use the many and varied features of one
of Microsoft’s most popular products—Microsoft
Word, part of the Microsoft Office Suite.
Microsoft Word 2010 is a powerful word processing
program that will take your documents far beyond
what you can produce with a typewriter. Whether
you want to create a simple letter to a friend, produce
a newsletter for a professional organization,
or even write a complicated, multiple-page report
containing graphics and tables with numerical
data, you will find the information that you need
to quickly and easily get the job done in Picture
Yourself Learning Microsoft Word 2010.
This book uses a detailed approach with illustrations
of what you will see on your screen, linked
with instructions for the next mouse movements
or keyboard operations to complete your task.
Computer terms and phrases are clearly explained
in non-technical language, and expert tips and
shortcuts help you produce professional-quality
Picture Yourself Learning Microsoft Word 2010 provides
the tools you need to successfully tackle the
potentially overwhelming challenge of learning to
use Microsoft Word. Whether you are a novice user
or an experienced professional, you will be able to
quickly tap into the program’s user-friendly integrated
design and feature-rich environment.
Through this book you will learn how to create
documents; however, what you create is totally up
to you—your imagination is the only limit! This
book cannot begin to teach you everything you can
do with Microsoft Word, nor does it give you all the
different ways to accomplish a task. What I have
tried to do is show you the fastest and easiest way
to get started with this fun and exciting program.
This book is divided into four parts. In Part 1, I
show you how to create a basic document. While
it’s not the most exciting section of the book, it’s
certainly the most practical. Look out after that—
things start to be lots of fun! In Part 2, you work
with longer documents, and in Part 3, you learn
how to enhance the appearance your documents
with columns, tables, and graphics. Part 4 helps
you to improve the quality of your documents and
save you lots of time with Word tools.
