Welcome to Lesson 1 of the Intermediate Microsoft Word Tutorial. In this lesson we will cover toolbars. I hope you enjoy the lesson.

Word Toolbars

Step 1: Menu Bar

There are nine menus in the menu bar. These give you access to all of Word’s options. Just click on a menu name to display a list of related menu commands, and then click the command you want to issue.

Step 2: Title Bar

The name of the document appears in the title bar. Document 1 is a temporary name Word uses until you assign a new one.

Step 3: Toolbars

Standard and Formatting toolbars contain buttons that give you quick access to a variety of Word commands and features. If you don’t know what a specific tool does, just rest the mouse pointer over the button and a pop-up menu will appear telling you what it is.

Step 4: Status Bar

The status bar tells you the location of the insertion point in a document and provides information about the current settings and commands.

Step 5: Document View Buttons

Click here to see your document in different ways. Normal is best for typing and editing. Online Layout view shows your document, as it will appear on the web. Page Layout shows how the page will look when printed. You can use the Outline view to create a document outline.
