This course is designed to teach students basic Word skills
Identify the Components of the Word Interface
While different versions have different appearances, they all have most of the same features. If you know what to call it, you should be able to find it in other versions.
Navigate and Select Text
Word shines when it comes to text selection, offering more than just the standard key combinations and how to master highlighting text with your mouse.
Apply Character Formatting
Word allows you to format text dozens of ways with different text effects, colors, underline styles, and more. Word provides a few tools to make the formatting process quick and easy.
Align Text Using Tabs
Indentation and alignment are very noticeable on a printed page, so you will probably want to set the tab stops in your document precisely how you want them.
Display Text as List Items
Getting bulleted lists to look just right can be challenging, particularly if you are using the Bullet tool on the Home tab of the ribbon.
Control Paragraph Layout
This is often helpful in page layout to visually separate sections of your document from one another.
Apply Borders and Shading
Word allows you to quickly and easily add different types of borders to your paragraphs. You can add borders to any or all sides of a paragraph, or you can create a drop-shadow effect. (Drop shadows cause your boxed paragraphs to “stand off” the page, providing almost a three-dimensional appearance.)

Renumber a List

Apply a Page Border and Colour
Word allows you to easily add borders to a paragraph of text. Word displays a number of different borders you can apply.
Add a Watermark
A watermark is light printing that appears behind your normal text. With a PostScript printer, you can easily add a watermark to your documents.
Check Spelling and Grammar
Word has a built-in spelling and grammar checker that can help reduce errors.
Customise the Word Interface
In earlier versions of Word you had the option to use a blue background with white text. This was a feature of the old WordPerfect appearance, and many people migrating from WordPerfect to Microsoft Word wanted to use the same screen colors they were familiar with.
