Visio 2010 can be started in a couple of different ways. Number one, we can begin from the Windows Start menu or we can begin from a Windows Desktop shortcut. Additionally, we can also start with an existing diagram and launch Visio utilizing that diagram. I'm going to walk you through how to start from the Windows shortcut. So we'll come down to the gym, and we'll select the gym, and select All Programs and Microsoft Office, and click on Visio 2010. That will launch the Visio 2010 and places immediately into the backstage view.
As I said, another way to launch into that is to select a desktop shortcut. If one is not already been created for you. Simply select the same path, All Programs, and in this case when we get down to Microsoft Office, right-click on Visio 2010, and select Send to Desktop (create shortcut). That will create the Visio item on your Desktop, and from there simply double-click to launch that item, and again you'll be presented with a backstage view. Now as I said an alternate method to launch Visio 2010 is to launch with an existing diagram.
So I'm going to go to a folder where I have a diagram. Notice it says in this case Decision Tree. It's a Visio diagram. And simply double- click on that diagram, and in doing so it's going to bring up the Visio environment and place you directly into the drawing environment with that drawing ready to work with.
