Opening Office Programs
Choose Start> All Programs>Microsoft
Office, which displays a list of Office
applications. Click the application you want to
open. If you select Word, Excel, or PowerPoint, a
blank document, workbook, or presentation
appears on your screen ready for you to begin
entering your data. You’ll start working with Word
in Chapter 2, Excel in Chapter 8, and PowerPoint in
Chapter 14. Figure 1-1 illustrates the opening
screens for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
Desktop Shortcuts
To place an Office application icon on your
Windows desktop, right-click the application
name from the Start>All Programs>Microsoft
Office menu and choose Send To>Desktop
(create shortcut).
If you open Access (Chapter 18) or Publisher (see
Chapter 25), a list of templates appears and the
first time you open Outlook (Chapter 21), a startup
wizard appears prompting you to configure
Outlook and set up your e-mail accounts.
Whenever you finish working with a specific
application, you exit the program to release the
program from your computer’s memory. Click the File
tab and choose Exit or click the Close button in the
upper-right corner of the application window. You
may be prompted to save your file. Click Yes or No
if prompted to save your file.
