Starting an Application
When you launch any of the Offi ce applications, that program and its respective tool set
will be loaded into your computer’s RAM (working memory) so that you can begin working.
Offi ce 2013 only runs on the Windows 7 and Windows 8 operation systems. (It also runs on
Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2012, but this topic limits coverage to using
Offi ce on the end user versions of Windows.) this topic assumes that you’re using Windows 8
in its default confi guration. If you’re using Windows 7, some actions won’t apply, and the
text will point them out along the way. Because of the signifi cant changes made to the user
interface in Windows 8, the start-up method you’fill use will vary heavily depending on your
operating system.
When you install Offi ce 2013 in Windows 8, a tile for each Offi ce program automatically
appears on the Windows 8 Start screen, the screen that appears after you start your
computer and sign in to your user account. The Start screen is the central location for accessing
programs like Word and Windows 8 apps, and the fastest way to return to the Start screen
at any time is to press the Windows logo key on the keyboard. You also can point to the
lower-left corner of the Windows desktop — which retains much the same appearance in
Windows 8 that it had in Windows 7 — until a Start tile appears, and then click it. Here’s
how to start an Offi ce 2013 program from the Windows 8 Start screen:
1. If needed, press the Windows logo key to go to the Start screen.
2. Depending on your screen resolution, you may need to point to the bottom of
the screen to display a scroll bar and then scroll right to display the tiles
for the Offi ce 2013 applications. Figure 1.11 shows the tiles.
