Scrolling
As mentioned at the beginning of this chapter, you view only a portion of a
document on the screen through the document window. At some point when you type
text or insert graphics, Word will scroll the top or bottom portion of the document off
the screen. Although you cannot see the text and graphics once they scroll off the screen,
they remain in the document.
As shown in Figure 1–59, when you insert the picture in the fl yer, the text and
graphics are too long to fi t in the document window. Thus, to see the bottom of the fl yer,
you will need to scroll downward.
You may use either the mouse or the keyboard to scroll to a different location in a
document. With the mouse, you can use the scroll arrows or the scroll box on the scroll
bar to display a different portion of the document in the document window, and then
click the mouse to move the insertion point to that location. Table 1–1 explains various
techniques for using the scroll bar to scroll vertically with the mouse.
Minimize Wrist Injury
Computer users
frequently switch
between the keyboard
and the mouse during a
word processing session;
such switching strains the
wrist. To help prevent
wrist injury, minimize
switching. For instance,
if your fi ngers already
are on the keyboard, use
keyboard keys to scroll.
If your hand already is
on the mouse, use the
mouse to scroll.
