Opening and saving a wordpad document

Opening and Saving a WordPad Document

  • A document is a file you create using a word-processing program, such as a letter or a memo

  • When you start WordPad, a blank document opens which is known as the document window

    • you can enter text, to create a new document or you can open an existing file, make changes and then save the document

    • until you save the document, it is stored in the computer’s random access memory (RAM), which is temporary storage whose contents are erased when the computer is turned off

    • to store a document permanently, you must save it as a file; if this is the first time saving the file you need to specify a filename and folder in the Save As dialog box

Working with filename extensions

  • Filename extensions are the three letters that may appear after a file name in a dialog box or file management program window, such as .txt, docx, .bmp

  • .txt match files that are created in WordPad

  • .docxmatch files created in Microsoft Word

  • .xlsx match files created in Microsoft Excel

Modifying text in wordpad

Modifying Text in WordPad

  • An advantage of using a word processing program is that you can edit a document, or change its contents without recreating it

  • Text can be moved from place to another using the Cut and Paste commands or the drag-and-drop method, which allows you to simply drag text from one location to another

    • when text is cut from a document, Windows removes it from the document and places it on the Clipboard, a temporary storage place where it remains available to be pasted elsewhere

    • word wrap-wraps text between the document edges

Windows 7 Operating System


Modifying text in wordpad cont

Modifying Text in WordPad (cont.)

  • The format of text, or the appearance, can be changed to make the document easier to read or more attractive

    • for special emphasis you can combine formats, such as bold and italic or you can change the font style and size

    • a font is a set of characters with the same typeface or design such as Arial or Courier that you can increase or decrease in size

    • font size is measured in points, a point is 1/72 of an inch high

    • some formats such as italic, bold, underline act as toggle switches; click once to turn the format feature on and click again to turn it off

      • the Undo command reverses last change made

Working with a Graphic in Paint

  • Paint is a Windows accessory you use to create and work with graphics or pictures

  • You can open and save pictures created in or for other graphics programs using several common file formats, such as .bmp, .tiff, .png, or .jpeg

  • A bitmap file is a map of a picture created from small dots or pixels

    • the value of each dot is stored in one or more bits

    • one bit is used to represent a dot in black and white, or monochrome graphics, whereas multiple bits are used to represent a dot in graphics with color or shades of gray

    • with a 4-bit graphic, you can use 16 unique colors, an 8-bit graphic 256 colors and a 24-bit graphic 16 million colors

  • The Paint button is used to select file-related commands

  • The canvas area, or work area, is the white drawing area within the Paint window

Copying data between programs

Copying Data Between Programs

  • One of the most useful features Windows offers is the ability to use data created in one file in another file that might be created by a different Windows program

  • To work with more than one program or file at a time, you simply need to open both programs

  • To switch from one open window to another, click the correct taskbar button to make a window active

    • if you tile, or arrange open windows on the desktop so that they are visible, you can switch among them by clicking in the window in which you want to work and then you can use the Cut, Copy, Paste commands to move and copy data between different files

  • Printing a document creates a printout or hard copy paper document

  • Most Windows programs have a print option that you can access through the Print dialog box or using a Print command on a menu
