Microsoft Word is a powerful word processing program that allows you to create documents such as letters, articles, term papers, and reports; and revise them easily.
Word is much more powerful than WordPad because of the many built-in tools such as spell checking and text auto-correcting. Word makes creating a document easy and fun especially if you try out the latest Microsoft Word Wizards.
Wizards are useful for creating documents that are complex, such as a Resume, without having advanced word processing skills. Even Wizards can be difficult to handle if your word processing skills are minimal. This course will help you gain the basic knowledge and skills for creating documents using Word
A word processor is software or a device that allows users to create, edit, and print documents. It enables you to write text, store it electronically, display it on a screen, modify it by entering commands and characters from the keyboard, and print it. Of all computer applications, word processing is the most common. Today, most word processors are delivered either as a cloud service or as software that users can install on a PC or mobile device.
This course is intended for beginners who have little to no experience with word processing. Uses Microsoft Word in this section. If you don’t have Microsoft Word, you can take this course anyway.
