Introducing MS-Word 2007

Word manipulates words, sentences, and paragraphs. Although Word 2007 program specializes in storing and manipulating different types of data, they all work in similar ways. First, you have to enter data into an Word 2007 program by typing on the keyboard or loading data from an existing file. Second, you have to tell Word 2007 how to manipulate your data, such as underlining, enlarging, coloring, or deleting it. Third, you have to save your data as a file.

To help you understand this three-step process of entering, manipulating, and saving data, Word 2007 offers similar commands among all its programs so you can quickly jump from Word without having to relearn entirely new commands to use each program. Even better, Word 2007 rearranges its numerous commands so finding the command you need is faster and easier than ever before. (If you think this implies that previous versions of Microsoft Word were clumsy and hard to use, you are right.)
