Some of you may have noticed… my entries… are not very technical…or…long… and hoping that they’re not confusing… but… I write… the way I speak. As if I’m telling you a story. I find it easier to understand something if I teach it to someone else… so using this suite of programs has been fun and trying at times because I have been teaching my father how to use it as I go along.
I use Outlook everyday… and noticed that the improvements there were kinda cool with adding the social media aspect…. PP was another one I use regularly… but Word…by far is what I use the most…feel the most comfortable with and have been teaching my father. Wow… I’ve found that once he “got” something it stuck…so Microsoft…thanks for simplifying everything and making it easy to use. He likes the top bar.. and having the ability to change pictures (which I love and mentioned in a different post)… it’s too the point where he’s making collages of my daughter to use as his desk-top image… so really… hats off to you guys who make the program totally user friendly. I however…will take some credit… because teaching is something that may or may not be a strong suite of mine… so really… I had to have a ton of patience!
Love the styles you can use… that hyperlink is in the list under styles (the only way I knew how to do it before was to right click and click hyperlink) When you “change” styles…there is a ton of options and colors so it makes every document unique and fun…but professional when it needs to be.
My Dad thanked me for helping him out and making him feel comfortable with Word now…which is awesome.. because that means I won’t get a million calls a day from him asking questions about how to do something. All of you know how hard that must be when trying to explain it over the phone too!
