To Save the Resume
If your Windows taskbar
does not display a separate
program button for each
open Word document (as
shown in Figure 3-61),
click the Ofﬁ ce Button,
click the Word Options
button, click Advanced
in the left pane, scroll to
the Display area in the
right pane, place a check
mark in the Show all
windows in the Taskbar
check box, and then click
the OK button.
You have completed several tasks on the resume. Thus, you should save it in a ﬁ le.
1 Display the Ofﬁ ce Button menu and then click Save As to display the Save As dialog box.
2 Save the ﬁ le on your USB ﬂ ash drive using Canaan Resume as the ﬁ le name.
Copying and Pasting
The next step in personalizing the resume is to enter the address, phone, and e-mail
information in the content controls. One way to enter this information in the resume is to
type it. Recall, however, that you already typed this information in the cover letter. Thus,
a timesaving alternative would be to use the Ofﬁ ce Clipboard to copy it from the cover
letter to the resume. The Ofﬁ ce Clipboard is a temporary storage area that holds up to
24 items (text or graphics) copied from any Ofﬁ ce program.
Through the Ofﬁ ce Clipboard, you can copy multiple items from any Ofﬁ ce document
and then paste them into the same or another Ofﬁ ce document by following these general
1. Items are copied from a source document . If the source document is not the active
document, display it in the document window.
2. Display the Ofﬁ ce Clipboard task pane and then copy items from the source document
to the Ofﬁ ce Clipboard.
3. Items are copied to a destination document . If the destination document is not
the active document, display the destination document in the document window.
4. Paste items from the Ofﬁ ce Clipboard to the destination document.
The following pages use these guidelines to copy the address, phone, and e-mail
information from the letterhead to the resume.
The Windows Clipboard,
which can hold only one
item at a time, is not
the same as the Ofﬁ ce
Clipboard. When you
collect multiple items
on the Ofﬁ ce Clipboard,
however, the last copied
item is copied to the
Windows Clipboard as
well. When you clear
the Ofﬁ ce Clipboard, the
Windows Clipboard also
