What's WORD All About?

This program is a beginner's introduction to some of the capabilities and basic concepts of Microsoft WORD, the standard word-processing program in most offices. We'll discuss creating a new document, changing fonts, colors, and sizes, copying formatting from one part of the document to another, and using WORD's built-in templates.
