For most of us, the phrase word processing doesn’t bring to mind exciting images of
movement, color, sound, and images. It doesn’t promise a lot of fun and connection
like the phrase social networking does. It doesn’t hint at an unlimited world of
information or draw you closer to what fascinates you like the phrase web browsing does.
But that’s all changing with Microsoft Word 2010.
The newest version of Word offers new and improved features that make it easy for you
to make your documents look better than ever. You can control the format, enhance your
text, and apply artistic filters to images to make your documents really shine. You can easily
translate content on the fly, access your documents from almost anywhere, blog and share
content with social media sites, and share your content with colleagues in a number of
different formats with just a few clicks of the mouse. And you can access your content in
a variety of ways—from the server, your desktop PC, your smartphone, or any device with
Web access.
This chapter encourages you to envision the types of projects you’d like to create with Word
2010 and spotlights the new and improved features that will help get you there. Along
the way, you’ll learn about the Word 2010 window, explore the Ribbon, and find out more
about Word options, the Trust Center, and tweaking program features to your liking.
