The Word 2010 Screen
Opening Word
Figure 1-2:
Clicking the File tab
takes you Backstage
to see information
about your
document. From the File
menu, you can also
work with the
document in various ways
and set options for
Quick Access toolbar. No matter which tab you select, the Quick Access
toolbar remains visible at the top of the screen, giving you easy access to frequently
used buttons. The standard icons on this toolbar are Save, Undo, and Redo, but
you can customize it with your own personal faves. (Page 889 tells you how.)
Title bar. Across the top of the screen, the middle section shows you the name
of this document—handy when you’re working on several files at once. If the
document is one you just created, the title bar shows Document1 or Document2
(and so on), until you’ve saved and named your work.
Minimize, Restore, and Close buttons. These upper-right buttons give you a
one-click way to work with the currently open window:
Minimize. Click this to make your document disappear from the screen
without closing the file. Word shrinks your document down to nothing
but leaves its button on the taskbar. To summon it again, click that taskbar
Restore Down/Maximize. This resizes the window that displays your
document. When the button shows two overlapping windows, then the Word
screen is at full size; click the button to shrink the window. When the
button shows a single window (as in Figure 1-1), the window isn’t taking up
the full screen; click the button to maximize the window.
Tip: You can resize the Word window by hand so it’s exactly the size you want. Click the Restore Down
button to make the window smaller. Then position the mouse pointer along the window’s border so it
becomes a two-headed arrow. Click and, while holding down the mouse button, drag the window to the
size you want. Then let go of the mouse button.
