In this lesson, you'll learn how to navigate the Word interface and become familiar with some of its most important features, such as the  Ribbon ,  Quick Access Toolbar , and  Backstage view .

Getting to know Word 2016:

Getting to know Word 2016 Word 2016  is similar to Word 2013 and Word 2010. If you've previously used either version, then Word 2016 should feel familiar. But if you are new to Word or have more experience with older versions, you should first take some time to become familiar with the  Word 2016 interface .

The Word interface:

The Word interface When you open Word for the first time, the  Start Screen  will appear. CLICK IT! From here, you'll be able to create a  new document , choose a  template , and access your  recently edited documents . From the  Start Screen , locate and select  Blank document  to access the Word interface.

The Ribbon:

The Ribbon Word uses a  tabbed Ribbon system  instead of traditional menus. The  Ribbon   contains multiple tabs , which you can find near the top of the Word window.


Each tab contains several  groups of related commands . For example, the Font group on the Home tab contains commands for formatting text in your document.


Some groups also have a  small arrow  in the bottom-right corner that you can click for even more options.

Using the Tell me feature:

Using the Tell me feature If you're having trouble finding command you want, the  Tell Me  feature can help. It works just like a regular search bar: Type what you're looking for, and a list of options will appear. You can then use the command directly from the menu without having to find it on the Ribbon.

The Quick Access Toolbar:

The Quick Access Toolbar Located just above the Ribbon, the  Quick Access Toolbar  lets you access common commands no matter which tab is selected. By default, it shows the  Save ,  Undo , and Redo  commands, but you can add other commands depending on your needs.

To add commands to the Quick Access Toolbar::

To add commands to the Quick Access Toolbar : Click the  drop-down arrow  to the right of the  Quick Access Toolbar .


Select the  command  you want to add from the menu .


The command will be  added  to the Quick Access Toolbar.

The Ruler:

The Ruler The  Ruler  is located at the top and to the left of your document. It makes it easier to adjust  your document with precision. If you want, you can hide the Ruler to create more screen space.

To show or hide the Ruler::

To show or hide the Ruler : Click the  View  tab .


Click the checkbox next to  Ruler  to  show  or  hide  the Ruler.

Backstage view:

Document views and zooming:

Document views and zooming Word has a variety of viewing options that change how your document is displayed. You can choose to view your document in  Read Mode ,  Print Layout , or  Web Layout . These views can be useful for various tasks, especially if you're planning to  print  the document. You can also  zoom in and out  to make your document easier to read.

Read Mode : This view opens the document to a full screen. This view is great for reading large amounts of text or simply reviewing your work.


Print Layout : This is the default document view in Word. It shows what the document will look like on the printed page.


Web Layout : This view displays the document as a webpage, which can be helpful if you're using Word to publish content online.

Zooming in and out:

You can also select the  +  or  -   commands  to zoom in or out by smaller increments. The number next to the slider displays the current  zoom percentage , also called the  zoom level .
