Introduction

Are you a visual learner? Do you like to see how to do things rather than read about them? Do you need to learn how to use Microsoft Office XP, but you don't have time to wade through an exhaustive tome? If you answered "Yes" to any of these questions, How to Use Microsoft Office XP is the book for

you. Office XP is the latest version of the popular Microsoft Office suite of programs. The new and improved Office XP features task panes that put the tools you work with the most just a quick click away, a document recovery feature that saves and recovers your work in case of a system crash, more collaboration features so that you can share your documents with others, and much more. How to Use Microsoft Office XP will help you learn this latest version of the software quickly.

This book has been written and assembled especially for visual learners who want to get up and running fast. It will show you how to use the basic features of the Office suite of programs in an easy-to-understand, straightforward manner. You'll learn

  • How to create and format Word documents
  • How to work with Excel formulas and functions
  • How to create slideshow presentations with PowerPoint
  • How to use Access to organize your data
  • How to send and receive e-mail with Outlook
  • How to use Internet Explorer to download files
  • How to use the Office graphics tools to add pic tures and shapes to your files
Each topic is presented visually, step by step, so that you can clearly see how to apply each feature to your own tasks. The illustrations show exactly what you'll see on your own computer screen, making it easy to follow along.

You can use the book as a tutorial, working through each section one task at a time, or as a reference, looking up specific features you want to learn about. There's no right or wrong way-use the method that best suits your own learning style.

In no time at all, you'll master all the basic tools needed to use the software for your own office or home needs. In addition, you'll gain the fundamental skills for working on your computer more productively. You won't find a more powerful set of computer applications than Microsoft Office XP, and no book will teach you how to use it more easily than How to Use Microsoft Office XP.
