Word Timesaving Features
This course is designed for current users of Microsoft Office Word for Windows who have already mastered the basics covered in our Word Essential Skills course.
Our aim is to provide you with the necessary skills to produce documents using Microsoft Office Word for Windows (referred to here as Word). We will also introduce many time-saving features using quick keys and short cuts.
Word is a document generating tool, which makes tasks like producing memos, letters and reports, easy and efficient. In this course we cover time saving features such as:
- Navigating quickly around a document using the Browse features.
- Using AutoText, AutoComplete and AutoFormat to save time with automatic recall of text or graphics, automatic completion of text and automatic insertion of formatting.
- Reordering lists into numeric or alphabetical order by sorting text.
- Using Tables and Columns to effectively layout documents.
- Working with Styles to apply automatic formats that are used often.
It is important that you use your new skills as soon as possible on completion of this training course. We encourage you to take your own notes, and to review this Course Guide once you are back at your workplace.
This course in conjunction with Word Essential Skills, Word Long Documents and Word Graphs & Graphics covers the material examined in the MOS Word Core exam.
