    Let's begin by starting an Office App: Microsoft Word. To Launch Word, click on the Start Button clipboard_e95baf85c46d1307e17e5171cac08253d.png on the Windows taskbar and locate Microsoft Word. You can quickly navigate to the application by pressing the “W” button. on the keyboard.


    Microsoft Word will launch and display its first screen: backstage view. The backstage view presents the user with options to start a new document from a template or as a blank document. A blank document contains no pre-existing organization or formatting while a template provides the user with a document model that has already been formatted and organized for a specific purpose (such as a calendar.). For the purposes of this activity, click on the “Blank document”.
