Getting Started with Word
Using the Go To Command
If you have a lengthy document, use the Go To
command to jump to a specific location in the
document. Follow these steps:
1.
Choose Home>Editing and click the Find
button drop-down arrow.
Figure 2-4
Quickly locate specific pages in your document.
2. Choose Go To. The Find and Replace dialog
box appears with the Go To tab in front (see
Figure 2-4).
3. Type the page number you’d like to display
and then click Next or press the Enter key.
Word displays the specified page with the
insertion point located at the beginning of
the specified page.
Go To Alternatives
Two optional methods for displaying the Go
To option are to press the F5 key or press
Ctrl+G.
Editing Text
Unless you’re a perfect typist,
you’ll probably make a few mistakes in
your document. Or maybe you’ll change
your mind about some of the text in the
document. In a word-processing document such as
Word, corrections and changes are easy to make,
and in some instances typing errors are even
automatically corrected for you. In Word, if you make a
mistake, or change your mind, you just go back
and change the text.
Adding New Text
Suppose you are typing a letter to someone and
forgot to add a thought you wanted in an early
paragraph. When you want to add new text in the
document, place the insertion point where you want to
locate the new text and begin typing. As you type,
Word inserts the characters and pushes the existing
characters to the right or to the next line if
necessary. Notice in the bottom example of Figure 2-5
how the added words “Albertson Beautiful
Customizations” are inserted after the phrase “cus-
tomer of,” which makes some of the words in the
top line drop down to the second line.
