convenient and sometimes faster too. Table 5-1 lists different keystroke
combinations you can use to move the cursor.
You can move the cursor with both the keyboard and the mouse.

Viewing a Document
Word can display your document in one of five views, which can help you
better understand the layout, margins, and page breaks in your document:
Print Layout: Displays page breaks as thick, dark horizontal bars so you
can clearly see where a page ends and begins. (This is the default view.)
Full Screen Reading: Displays pages side by side so you see how
adjacent pages appear next to each other.
