This course is designed for current users of Word for Windows who have already mastered the skills covered in our Word Essential Skills and Timesaving Features courses.

Our aim is to provide you with the necessary skills to produce documents using the Microsoft Word for Windows (referred to here as Word) graphical features. We will introduce many timesaving features using quick keys and short cuts.
