Understanding and Tailoring the Status Bar
When you use the View Side By Side command, Word sets the default to Synchronous
Scrolling, which means that as you scroll through one document, the other document scrolls
automatically as well. This is helpful for comparing documents in which you’re looking for
paragraphs, sections, or even phrases that might be slightly different.
Understanding and Tailoring the Status Bar
The status bar, which is located in the lower-left corner of the Word 2010 window, provides
useful information about your current document. By default, the status bar shows you:
The location of the cursor position
The number of pages in the document
The number of words
Whether any proofing errors exist
The selected language you are using if you have installed more than one language
keyboard preference
You might also see in the status bar an indicator that lets you know whether any macros
are currently being recorded in your document.
The status bar includes four key elements:
The Page area shows the number of the current page and the length of your
document. You can also click this area to display the Go To tab in the Find and Replace
dialog box.
Word displays a continually updating word count on the status bar as well. If you
select text, Word shows you how many words of the total word count are selected
(for example, 50/451). Click this area to display the Word Count dialog box, in which
you can view additional statistics on number of characters, paragraphs, and more.
To detect errors, an ongoing spelling and grammar checker continuously reviews your
document content. Click this icon to go to the error and see options for correcting it.
