Microsoft Word (module 202)


Formatting: Text formatting effects individual characters that first need to be selected (highlighted). You'll learn about changing the font, font size, style, colour, how to make characters bold, italic and underlined and how to make several of these changes at the same time using the mouse via the formatting toolbar and the Font formatting dialog box that is accessed via the menu bar.

Learn about default settings, in particular how to change the default font that is used in most "Normal" documents and learn how to use Format Painter to make formatting a breeze.

Page Formatting: Learn about the various page setup options and how to change the default Page Settings for "Normal" documents.

This section will show you how to make the page print sideways (landscape) or tall (portrait) - this is called Orientation and how to change your side and top and bottom margins (distance that text appears from the edge of the page).
