The Project interface: Finding your way
You can start Project from the Start menu (in Windows 7) or Start screen (in Windows 8), or
by opening a Microsoft Project file. In this exercise, you’ll start Project without opening a
file and then examine the major parts of the interface.
Do one of the following:
▪ If you are running Windows 7: On the Start menu, point to All Programs , click
Microsoft Office , and then click Project 2013 .
▪ If you are running Windows 8: On the Start screen, tap or click Project 2013.
Project’s start screen appears. Here you can quickly open a plan that was recently
opened, open some other plan, or create a new plan based on a template .
TIP If the start screen did not appear when you started Project, do the following. On
the File tab, click Options. In the Project Options dialog box, click General, and under
Start Up Options, click Show The Start Screen When This Application Starts.
