This course is intended to help all novice Word users get up to speed quickly. We cover the various features of the interface, show users how to create a basic document, and introduce users to the most important Word tools. We'll teach you how to create, save, edit and share a new document. You'll learn how to customise the Microsoft Word interface to suit your way of working. You will be able to edit simple documents, format text, move it around, search and replace, achieve paragraph effects such as bullet points and numbering, insert tables, create headers and footers and set-up for printing. By the end of the course you'll be fully competent in the tasks Word users need every day.
