Introducing the Word Screen
Seeing the Word screen for the first time is like trying to find your way
through Tokyo’s busy Ikebukuro subway station. It’s intimidating. But when
you start using Word, you quickly learn what everything is. To help you get
going, Figure 1-1 shows you the different parts of the screen. Here are
shorthand descriptions of these screen parts:
✦ Word button: In the upper-left corner of the screen, the Word button
offers a menu for restoring, moving, sizing, minimizing, maximizing, and
closing the Word window.
✦ Quick Access toolbar: This toolbar offers the Save, Undo, and Repeat
buttons. Wherever you go in Word, you see the Quick Access toolbar.
Book I, Chapter 1 explains the toolbar in detail; Book IX, Chapter 1
explains how to customize and move the Quick Access toolbar.
