Word opens the document you selected—but as a new document. If you
selected “Agenda 10-14-10”, for example, Word doesn’t show that filename in
the title bar. Instead, it shows “Document2” (the number will vary, depending
on how many new files you’ve created this session). Word has made a copy of
Agenda 10-14-10, so any changes you now make happen to the new file, not to
the original on which Word based the copy. Type in whatever new information
you want, and then save the document with a new name (the next section tells
you how).
Figure 1-6:
To create a new
document from an existing
one, find the
document you want to use
as the basis for your
new document (use
the left-hand pane to
change folders). Select
a file, and then click
Open.
Typing in Some Text
This part’s easy. Just place your fingers on the keyboard and type away. The cursor,
a blinking vertical line, shows where the text will appear as you type. You can move
the cursor with the mouse (put the mouse pointer where you want it, and then click
to make the cursor jump there) or by using the arrow keys and navigation keys (Page
Up, Page Down, Home, and End).
