d. File menu. From your File menu (upper left corner) choose the New command. You
may then choose from a wide variety of wizards. Once selected, click "OK." Your computer

e. MS Word displays a formatted letter ready for you to add or modify your information.
The blinking cursor is your insertion point; it shows where your typing will be inserted. Your
format will automatically adjust text to fit between the margins.
f. If you need to move your cursor to a new location, simply point your cursor to a new
location and click your left mouse button. You can edit sections of your document by using the
"select then do" model in Word. For example, select your text by dragging your cursor over a
word or sentence with the left mouse button kept pressed in the down position (this area should
be darkened). As you type, the darkened area disappears.
g. You can select your text by clicking your cursor where you want your text to begin
and drag over the text. Text will be added to demonstrate how you can "cut" sections of text.
Just drag your cursor over the text you want to remove and click on the "Cut" button. To move a
section of your text to another location, use the same procedure you used to cut your text. Click
you cursor to the area you want to move that text and click the "Paste" button. MS Word inserts
the text in the new location.
2. Drag and Drop Editing. You may also drag and drop your text to move it to a new location.
Select the text you want to move by dragging your cursor over your text. Hold your finger down
on the left mouse button and drag your cursor to the new location. Release the left mouse button.
3. Formatting. Formatting simply means changing the appearance of your text. Use the buttons
on the formatting toolbar to change the way your text looks. Just select your text you need to
change and click from a number of buttons from the toolbar to change your formatting.
