G03: Instructions microsoft word

QUESTION: Where can I get more instruction on using Microsoft Word?

ANSWER: Unfortunately, the manufacturer does not provide a manual. You may notice the word Help in the Menu Bar. Help isn’t always helpful, but sometime it can be. Try it. Microsoft Word doesn’t typically come with a tutorial, but if your version offers one, watch it.
Lots and lots of instructional books are available for purchase, but before you buy one, sit down and see if it speaks your language or that of a computer geek. If you can’t understand the book, it won’t help you understand the computer.
Another option is to contact your local library, senior or community center, high school or community college to see if they offer Microsoft Word classes. Also, be brave and click on the items in the Menu Bar to see how much you can understand.
