To get to work on a file, you have to open it first. And, of course, you close a
file when you’re finished working on it and want to stop and smell the roses.
Opening a file
Follow these steps to open a file:
1. On the File tab, choose Open (or press Ctrl+O).
You see the Open window. It lists files you recently opened (and files
you pinned to the Recent list).
2. If the name of the file you want to open is on the Recent list, click the
name to open the file.
If the name isn’t on the list, go to Step 3.
3. Click the location — Computer, SkyDrive, a network folder — where
the file is located.
Click Computer if the file is located on your computer. The Open
window shows the following (see Figure 1-10):

the folder in the Open dialog box.
The Open dialog box appears.
5. Select the file.
6. Click the Open button.
Your file opens. You can also double-click a filename in the Open dialog
