[MUSIC] Hi, I'm Maria Langer and I'd like to welcome you to Word 2013 Power Shortcuts. In this course, I'll help you get the most out of using Microsoft Word 2013 by sharing some of my favorite power user tips, tricks, and shortcuts. I'll start by telling you about some tips that every Word user should know. Then I'll move on to techniques for working with files, entering and editing text, formatting document contents, and publishing your documents to share them with others.

Each video is a stand-alone lesson to help you move beyond the basics and become more productive and effective using Microsoft Word. Since this course builds upon skills an experienced Word user should already have, to make the most out of this course you'll need a basic understanding of how Microsoft Word works. If you're brand new to Word, you might want to set this course aside for a while and explore some other courses first. Word 2013 Essential Training is a good place to start. If you've used a previous version of Word, but Word 2013 is new to you, check out Office 2013 New Features to see what's new.

Then, when you're ready, come on back and dive in here. Ready to take Microsoft Word to the next level? Let's get started.
