Learn how to leverage the power of Microsoft Word and create strong, standout documents.
- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Chris Grover, author on several books on Word and Microsoft Office. But even more importantly, I've actively used Word in real-world situations since it was first released. With each iteration of Word, I've not only learned what is new for my own benefit, I've built my skills to help train to help train many of my colleagues. In this course you'll get the benefit of that experience in addition to learning the basics for how to use Word 2010. You'll gain some tips and tricks and also discover how to avoid common pitfalls people encounter when they're using this program.
New features like Word's Ribbon can be disorienting at first. But it won't last long, as you discover how to make Word work the way you like to work. For example, you'll learn how to quickly set up pages for your projects using margins, tabs, and styles. Frequently used techniques like finding and replacing text, checking spelling, and creating outlines are covered thoroughly. These days, documents are likely to include photos, charts, and other graphics. So this course shows how to insert, re-size, and format those elements.
If you work with long documents you'll learn how to add footnotes, tables of content, and indexes. If you collaborate with a team, you'll see how to track changes and add comments to a document. You'll also learn the ins and outs of printing, how to publish PDF files, and how to transmit your finished work via e-mail. So you're ready when it's time to share or publish your work. After watching this course you'll be up to speed on Word and you'll be able to handle the most common word related tasks. So, are you ready to start?
