Written in large typeface and featuring enlarged figures and drawings to make the book easier to read, this fun and friendly book begins by showing you how to start each application and maneuver the interface. You'll benefit from detailed explanations on how to accomplish specific tasks through the use of examples and templates. It targets seniors who are interested in using the Microsoft Office suite for any number of reasons: keep in touch with family and friends, research topics of interest, shop online, learn a new skill, and more. It assumes no prior knowledge of Microsoft Office and walks you through each application: Word (documents), Excel (spreadsheets), PowerPoint (presentations), and Outlook (e-mail). It features a large font for text and enlarged figures and drawings to make the book accessible and easy to read. It explains how to open each application and navigate the interface, and clearly demonstrates how to accomplish specific tasks in each application. It includes helpful examples and templates of letters, faxes, a budget grid, and more to assist with the learning process.
