Formatting a floppy disk l.jpg
Formatting a floppy disk

  • When you format a floppy disk, you are removing all the information from that disk and preparing it for use on a specific type of drive.

  • To format a floppy disk so that it can store files, start by inserting the disk in your floppy disk drive, which is typically drive A or B.

Insert a disk into a floppy drive

Floppy drives may be mounted horizontally or vertically.

Do not force a disk into a drive. If it does not slide in smoothly, you may have the disk oriented in the wrong direction.

Label the disk so you can find it when you need it.

Enter select insert and delete text l.jpg
Enter, select, insert, and delete text

  • Regardless of the programs you work in most often, you will need to know how to enter and work with text.

  • To type text, you must be able to distinguish between the I-beam pointer and the insertion point:

    • The insertion point is the vertical flashing bar. It indicates your typing position on the screen and moves as you type.

    • The I-beam pointer is simply the shape the mouse pointer assumes when you're working with text.

    • When you move the mouse, you move the I-beam pointer.

The I-beam pointer/insertion point

The insertion point shows your position on the screen, and moves as you type. When you pause, it usually blinks.

The mouse pointer moves freely around the screen, but when positioned in a text area it appears as an I-beam.

When you move the I-beam pointer to an area where text has been typed and click the mouse, the insertion point moves to that location.

Selecting text l.jpg
Selecting text

  • When you want to perform any type of action to text, such as cutting, copying, deleting, or formatting, you must first select it.

    • To select text, position the I-beam pointer to the left of the text.

    • Hold down the left mouse button and drag to the right until all the text you want to select is highlighted.

Saving a file l.jpg
Saving a file

  • As you type text in a new document, it is temporarily stored in the computer's memory. For permanent storage, you need to save your work on a disk.

  • When you save a file, you must give it a name.

  • Most filenames have extensions, which are suffixes (usually three characters) separated from the filename by a period.

  • File extensions help categorize the file by type or by the software that created it.
