Microsoft Word 2013 Quick Tips

Microsoft Office 2013 is the latest version of Micrsoft’s flagship productivity suite. It features modern user interface updates and plenty of new functionality based on the recent surge in cloud computing. Users with SharePoint or OneDrive subscriptions can easily synchronise files within their organisation and collaborate online from within the Microsoft Office applications.
 
Perhaps the best known and most widely used application within the suite is Microsoft Word. Lets take a look at navigating the new user interface in this powerful word processor.
 
 
 
This is the first page you will see when you open Word. There is the default option to open a blank document, the option to select from a number of templates, or of course you can open an existing document.

This is the blank document page. The file menu is tucked into the top left corner as usual, with slightly different styling. All of the familiar text formatting options are displayed on the Home tab. An extended library of style templates based on previous versions is also available.

Clicking on the Insert tab will show the options to add many types of objects to the document such as images and tables. The option to insert a header or footer is also here.

The file menu contains all of the usual options such as open, save or print. Now that Office is designed to integrate cloud storage options, further options within the save menu exist for saving the document to SharePoint or OneDrive. There is also the option to directly share the document via email etc, within the Share tab.

Shown below is the Save As menu, identical to the Save menu. There are various options for saving to online locations (SharePoint will appear here if it is configured) and to the local computer. To save a document to your local disk, select Computer and then click Browse.
