Start Microsoft Word

OK, Let us start with the Microsoft Word Tutorial. In this lesson, I will cover how to start Microsoft Word (also known by Microsoft Office Word, MS Word or simply, Word)

Well, I am assuming here that Microsoft Office, of which Microsoft Word is a part, is already installed on your computer. If it is not already installed, you will have to first install Microsoft Office.

Refer to my lessons on Microsoft Windows where I explain how to install any software. (Tutorial on Microsoft Windows is coming soon...)

Please refer to the picture above. It gives a clear idea as to how to choose the icon to start Microsoft Word

I will explain step by step how to find your Microsoft Word Icon so that you will be able to execute the Word program.

Step 1

Click, with your left mouse button, the Start button which is located on the left hand bottom corner on your Desktop or Laptop

Step 2

Click the All Programs button just above the Start button.

Step 3

Find the group Microsoft Office as in Step 3 in the picture. As soon as you point at the Microsoft Office group icon, the sub-group will open. If it does not, just click once with your left mouse button.

Step 4

In the sub-group, one of the icon will be Microsoft Office Word. The 2003 after Word is the version. You might have installed a different version.

Step 5

Now that you have found where MS Word icon is located, just press the Microsoft Word Icon, with your left mouse button, to Start Microsoft Word.

Have you gone into Word?

Hoorah... Success! Well Done!
