Course description

The programs of Microsoft Office 2007 feature many changes from previous versions. One of the major differences is the Ribbon, which replaces the menus and toolbars used in those earlier versions. We will show you how to use the new Ribbon as you learn to create, edit, and enhance your Microsoft Word documents. You will also see how to customize Word, to suit the way you work. Then we go beyond the basics, to show you advanced Word 2007 features. You will see how to format documents with Styles, how to change page layouts, and how to improve your documents with graphics, templates, lists and tables.
