Each program has a variety of views, or ways to display the ﬁ le in the workspace. For
example, Word has ﬁ ve views: Print Layout, Full Screen Reading, Web Layout, Outline,
and Draft. The content of the ﬁ le doesn’t change from view to view, although the
presentation of the content does. In Word, for example, Print Layout view shows how the
document would appear as a printed page, whereas Web Layout view shows how the
document would appear as a Web page. You’ll change views in later tutorials.
You can quickly switch
between views using the
view buttons on the status
bar or options on the View
tab on the Ribbon.
Zooming and Scrolling
You can zoom in to get a closer look at the content of an open document, worksheet,
slide, or database report. Likewise, you can zoom out to see more of the content at a
smaller size. You can select a speciﬁ c percentage or size based on your ﬁ le. The zoom
percentage can range from 10 percent to 400 percent (Excel and PowerPoint) or
500 percent (Word). The ﬁ gures shown in these tutorials show the workspace zoomed in
to enhance readability. Zooming can shift part of the workspace out of view. To change
which area of the workspace is visible in the program window, you can use the scroll
bars. A scroll bar has arrow buttons that you can click to shift the workspace a small
amount in the speciﬁ ed direction and a scroll box that you can drag to shift the
workspace a larger amount in the direction you drag. Depending on the program and zoom
level, you might see a vertical scroll bar, a horizontal scroll bar, or both.
