Post a New Question

Posted by on .

I'm a GranMa in my 60's trying to learn Word/Windows. I started with the 2nd course and have had only this one problem in 3 weeks so that is good. I don't think the answer to my problem is in the book for THIS course.

I can't figure out how to use the commands with the underlined letters like File, Open... I know all the OTHER ways to open a file but I have to know this one as well.

Can you help me?

  • Word Processing - ,

    In a Word document, click on the word File in the top left corner, and that menu should appear. Then click on Open and a box appears that allows you to wander around in the folders and files on the computer. Once you find the one you want, click on it and hit Open -- or simply double-click on it.

    Other ways to do this are with Ctrl + O

    or

    by clicking on File and opening one of the files listed at the bottom of that menu (if you want to open a very recently used one)

    or

    by using the Start | Documents list.

    =)

    Thank you, Writeacher. This was my first time to use this resource.

    I knew all the methods but the one with Ctrl + O...

    Is Ctrl + used with ALL the options across the toolbars to accomplish the tasks indicated by the underlined letter? (Not sure if that question is clear.)

    Again... Thank you from GranMa Cee

  • Word Processing - ,

    Evidently that is not the key... I tried with with Ctrl + I and got italics instead of Insert. So maybe my question should be... where can I find a copy of all the key combinations to activate those words with underlined letters in them.

    Thanks.... GranMa Cee

  • Word Processing - ,

    In those drop-down menus (File, Edit, etc.), you'll know when you see a Ctrl + shortcut -- you'll see Ctrl = K (or whatever) across from the command itself.

    Ctrl + C = copy
    Ctrl + X = cut
    Ctrl + V = paste
    etc.

    =)
