Introducing Backstage View
Introducing Backstage View
You’ll find Backstage view on the File tab, which is located at the far left end of the Ribbon.
This takes you to a window that looks similar to the Word 2010 document window—same
color scheme and fonts—but provides a multicolumn interface, with tabs stretching down
the left side of the window (see Figure 2-1).
Figure 2-1 Backstage view shares a color and font scheme with the Word 2010 window, but the
interface lets you know you’ve entered a new realm.
At the top of the tabs column, you find four selections called fast commands in Office 2010.
These are the common operations you perform regularly in Word—Save, Save As, Open,
and Close. When you click Save, Save As, or Open, the familiar dialog boxes open from
which you can navigate to the folder you need and save or open a file, depending on your
selection. When you click Close, Word 2010 prompts you to save the file if needed and then
closes the current document. Pretty straightforward.
Below the fast commands, by default a set of four recent documents is displayed. From
this list, you can conveniently reopen files you’ve used most recently without needing to
navigate to the folder in which they are stored. You can change the number of files displayed
