Up and Running with Word 2010

with Tim Grey

Video: Welcome

(audio playing) Hello, I'm Tim Grey. In my mind, the most valuable class I ever took in school was typing. In large part because so much of my work involves writing. Back in my school days, the typewriter was the key tool for putting words to paper. Thankfully today we have Microsoft Word 2010 for Windows, a powerful application that enables you to create a wide variety of documents featuring not only text, but also tables, images, and other elements. In this course, I'm going to help you get started using the most important features of Word 2010.
