Microsoft Word FAQ's Frequently Asked Questions

Microsoft Word FAQ's

Word is one of Microsoft’s flagship products and the world’s most widely used word processor. A core part of the Microsoft Office suite of applications, Word enables you to create and edit business documents such as reports and letters.

Microsoft Word has an extensive range of templates to help with the creation and layout of a variety of documents. You can quickly add tables, pictures, headers and footers, and many other elements to your documents to enhance readability and visual appeal.

Once your document has been assembled, you can use spelling and grammar checking to ensure the accuracy of your document. The final document can be printed, emailed, or saved as a PDF directly from within Word.

Word can be used to create just about any kind of documentation you can think of. You might be responsible for writing reports, operations manuals, training materials, or product information sheets to name just a few. Any of these documents can be created in Word.

Some significant features of Microsoft Word are:

  • Thousands of Templates
  • Automatic Spelling and Grammar check
  • Styles for consistent formatting
  • Mail Merge Letters or Email
  • Tracking review changes
  • Convert Styles to Table of Contents

These are just some of the features of Word, but of course, there are many more. If you need to create just about any kind of business document then you will probably need to use Microsoft Word.

Have you ever wondered why the Dummies books are so popular? Well, it’s probably because so many of us are self-taught, using Google to find out how to use a function, or we are shown how to use Word by somebody else at work.

Although this can be useful, it also means we tend to spend a lot of time with trial and error, or we are just picking up somebody else’s bad habits.

Trial and error, unfortunately, involves a lot of error, and the bad habits you pick up will probably be passed on to the next person, so soon they spread across the business, meaning entire teams end up working inefficiently.

At this point, you might head to the bookstore or do an online search to find a Word for Dummies book to help with some of those tricky problems. That’s a step in the right direction, and we sometimes use reference manuals ourselves. The problem is that it still takes time to find the information you need.

Our Microsoft Word courses are designed to target the key features and tools in the application to help you get back to work and apply them right away.

A training course with Keystroke Learning can set you up to take full advantage of your software. We want Microsoft Word to work for you, not the other way around.

We also make a point of passing on the best of our knowledge and experience to help you save time in your daily work. We know lots of shortcuts for your software applications, and we want you to know them as well.

Typically, one of our experienced trainers will walk you through the features and functions of the software, then you will try them out on your own, with tips and guidance on getting the best out of the features. We also encourage participants to ask lots of questions to help you get the most out of your learning experience.

You’ll receive a manual to take away at the end of the course, as well as exercise files so you can practice later, or just to jog your memory when you need.

Don’t worry, this happens quite a lot, and not just in Word. You’re probably a double clicker. You know, one of those folks who double-click everything!

It’s ok, we’ve got your back. When you double-click on a ribbon tab such as the Home tab, you set it to Auto Hide, leaving only the text to display.

The easy way to fix this is to simply double-click the Home tab again, and all will be good in the world.

This is very common. Even though Word has been around for over 30 years, it’s one of those programs that many people have never learned to use properly. As a result, we often inherit poorly constructed documents that just won’t behave the way they should.

Generally, it’s best to select the entire document and clear all formatting. Once this has been done you can then go through the document and reapply the appropriate heading styles and other elements you need.

If you have standard text, such as disclaimers, lists, etc. you don’t need to keep copying them from existing documents into your new document.

There is a much easier way and it’s called Quick Parts. Enter the text you need to recycle, then go the Insert ribbon and save the selection to the quick part gallery.

Give it a name you will remember and you are good to go. Next time you need to insert the text, just go to the quick part gallery and select the text entry from the list.

You can also just start typing the first three characters of the name you gave the text entry, and then press F3 to insert the text into your document.

A style is a collection of formatting instructions, such as font size, text alignment, paragraph spacing and many other options.

Using styles in Word is the best way to ensure efficient, consistent formatting in your documents. A simple example of styles is the headings in a document.

When formatted using styles, the headings can be quickly and consistently formatted to look the same.

Once styles have been applied in a document, there are several other benefits. These include the ability to navigate quickly through a long document, create an automatic table of contents, work with outlining to assist with structuring a document and many more.

Not at all, we’ve all been there. All you need to do is select the paragraph, then click the change case button on the home ribbon.

Select from one of the five options available in the drop-down list and the paragraph will be corrected.

You can even use the keyboard shortcut Shift + F3 if you want to impress everyone in your office!

Your learning doesn’t stop once you have completed your course.

We hope you will continue your experience by taking some time to practice what you have learned and apply it to your own situation and environment.

If we have done our job well, you may be inspired to learn even more by attending another course. If you are looking for something other than Microsoft Word, we have a comprehensive range of courses available for you to choose from.

We are here to help, so please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need any further advice.
