Storing – saving the document on disk

Retrieving – bringing the stored document into memory so it can be used again

How word processing works

How Word Processing Works

As you type, the screen displays your work

The program displays the insertion point (cursor) to show where the next character will appear

You can use the scroll bar to move throughout the document

Word wrap automatically moves a word to the beginning of the line below if there is not enough room at the end of the line to complete the word

Menus and buttons

Menus and Buttons

Commands are given via menus – a set of choices laid out across the top of the screen

Called pull-down menus because each initial choice reveals several lower-level choices

Commands can be executedby clicking on buttons

Toolbar – a collection of buttons, usually shown just below the menu bar

Easy corrections

Easy Corrections

Use the Backspace key to delete the character to the left of the cursor

Use the Delete key to delete the character under or just to the right of the cursor

The Undo command reverses the effect of the last action

Most word processing programs allow you to undo several actions
