I learned to be proficient by first, using the programs and second, reading Dummies books.

My first job was as a publicity assistant. IN writing, formatting and reformating press kits, I became intimate with Word.

Yep, use them. Write letters. Maybe a fake report or two with bullets & odd formatting. Try menu items & see what they do. Read the help topics. Lots of good information buried in the included help system.

Plus, the wizards will lead you through many basic actions. You won't want to use them later on when you know what you're doing, but in the beginning they're helpful.

There are often community ed classes about computer literacy, program use, etc. Google your area.

Most of what I learned was from playing around in there trying to find out how to make it look like I wanted it to. I can email you a document of basic information if you pm me your email address ( I did it for what we call a Lunch and Learn presentation here at work.)

There are online tutorials on the Microsoft websites. Those are pretty good, and then you can buy a book if you need more. That's how I learned Access.

Use the program and dig through the options? Some places to be fond of are File > Page setup, View > Header - Footer , Format > Paragraph. Anyone have anything else??

Learn to use all of the stuff on the top menu

To be excellent, learn the keyboard shortcuts:

CTRL-B: Bold selected text
CTRL-I: italicize
CTRL-U: Underline

CTRL-X: Cut
CTRL-C: Copy
CTRL-V: Paste

CTRL-A: Selects all text in document

INSERT key toggles overwrite on and off, very important. Gets attention from cute girls too.

Learn how CTRL and SHIFT modify HOME and END. Home will bring you to the beginning of the line, end will bring you to the rear. CTRL-END brings you to the end of the document, CTRL-HOME brings you to the front. SHIFT-HOME or SHIFT-END will select all text to the front or rear of the cursor on the line respectively. CTRL+SHIFT HOME/END will do the same as SHIFT-HOME/END, but to the ends of the document.

Know how clicking will allow you to select letters, words, lines, and all text.

Learn how to use print preview mode and different ways of viewing the page.

Know that CTRL+SCROLL WHEEL effects your zoom.
