Creating a new file
Each time you create a new file, you have the option of choosing different
types of templates that are already formatted and designed for specific
purposes, such as a calendar, newsletter, sales report, or corporate slide show
presentation, as shown in Figure 1-3.
To create a new file, follow these steps:
1. Click the File tab.
The Backstage View appears.
2. Click New.
A list of templates appears (see Figure 1-3).
3. Double-click the template you want to use.
Office 2010 creates a new file based on your chosen template. For some
templates, you may need access to the Internet to download the
templates from Microsoft’s Web site.
