To grab a document you already worked on — to open it — follow these steps:
1. Click the File tab to display the File screen.
2. Choose the Open command.
3. Choose a location where the document may lurk.
Your choices are Recent Documents (refer to Figure 8-2 ), the SkyDrive, or your computer.
If you can find your document in the Recent Documents list, click it. The document
opens on the screen. Congratulations — you’re done. If you don’t see your document, you have to
continue hunting for it on the SkyDrive or your computer.
4. Choose a recent folder from the list or click the Browse button when the recent folders
displayed do not please you.
Finally, the familiar Open dialog box appears. Your job is to use the Open dialog box to find the
document you want to open.
5. In the Open dialog box, click to highlight the file you want to open.
6. Click the Open button.
Word opens the highlighted file and slaps it down on the screen. You may even see displayed the
last location where you were working, along with a “Welcome back” message.
