Courses - Microsoft Word 202
Description: Intermediate Microsoft Word
Running Time: 63 minutes
Pre-Requisites: Word 201
We use Word XP in this course, but the lessons are valid for all versions of Word from 95 to 2003. There are cosmetic changes in Word 2007. Order before 5/26/2024 to get a FREE upgrade to our 2007 version when released!
This course covers a lot of topics that are important for basic day to day maintenance of your Word documents:
  • Password protecting your documents
  • Saving documents in other file formats
  • Backing up your documents automatically
  • Document properties
  • Searching for documents

We begin by learning how to password-protect your documents. You'll see how to lock your documents from spying eyes, how to set your documents to read-only, and other security methods.

Next you'll learn how to save your document in other file formats, such as WordPerfect, plain text, rich text, or even HTML files that can be viewed on the web. This is great if you need to be able to share your files with other users who don't have Word.

Next you will learn all about Microsoft Word's automatic backup features, including AutoBackup, Fast Saves, Background Saves, and AutoRecover.

You will next learn about Document Properties, and how they can be used to store extra information about your Word documents. You can save summary details, categories, keywords, and other information that will let you create a database of custom document properties that will let you, for example, pull up a list of all documents regarding a specific customer, or for a specific topic like Mortgages.

Next you'll learn how to search your entire computer system or network for documents using Word's advanced search function. Now that you know how to create a database of document properties (in the last lesson) you can also use those to perform powerful searches.

This class is a good utility tutorial that will teach you how to use many of the everyday features of Word that you might not know about, but will make your job a whole lot easier once you learn them.
