Word 2010 is a powerful word processing application that allows users to produce typed documents. These can range from simple letters through to fax cover sheets, reference manuals and sophisticated reports incorporating numbered headings, figures and graphics.

How To Use This Guide

This manual should be used as a point of reference following attendance of the introductory level Word 2010 training course. It covers all the topics taught and aims to act as a support aid for any tasks carried out by the user after the course.

The manual is divided into sections, each section covering an aspect of the introductory course. The table of contents lists the page numbers of each section and the table of figures indicates the pages containing tables and diagrams.


Those who have already used a spreadsheet before may not need to read explanations on what each command does, but would rather skip straight to the instructions to find out how to do it. Look out for the arrow icon which precedes a list of instructions.


The Appendices list the Ribbons mentioned within the manual with a breakdown of their functions and tables of shortcut keys.


Keys are referred to throughout the manual in the following way:

ENTER – Denotes the return or enter key, DELETE – denotes the Delete key and so on. Where a command requires two keys to be pressed, the manual displays this as follows:

CTRL P – this means press the letter “p” while holding down the Control key.

ӹ Commands When a command is referred to in the manual, the following distinctions have been made:

When Ribbon commands are referred to, the manual will refer you to the Ribbon – E.g. “Choose HOME from the Ribbons and then B for bold”.

When dialog box options are referred to, the following style has been used for the text – “In the PAGE RANGE section of the PRINT dialog, click the CURRENT PAGE option”

Dialog box buttons are shaded and boxed – “Click OK to close the PRINT dialog and launch the print.”

Within each section, any items that need further explanation or extra attention devoted to them are denoted by shading. E.G.:

“Word will not let you close a file that you have not already saved changes to without prompting you to save.”

Splitting A Table Sometimes you need to split a table between rows to add text in-between.

Merging And Splitting Cells

When you have inserted your table there may be times in a number of cells that you would want them as one cell and not several and similarly you may wish for one cell to be split into several. In 2010 this feature is easy to do. Not only can you split cells but you can split a whole table into multiple tables if the need arises
