This course is designed for Office users of any skill level, the only pre-requisite is that they have used a previous version of Microsoft Office at some point in the past. The course opens with an outline of general changes including:

  • The Ribbon, tabs, groups and commands that provide access to key functions.
  • Using “the Cloud” to extend Office functionality.
  • Introducing keyboard shortcuts that can be used to speed up common tasks .
  • The ribbons, contextual tabs, Quick Access and Mini Toolbars that make up the menu bars and screen elements.

  • Expand and Collapse Paragraphs

  • The use of the resizable formula bar and function autocomplete to increase efficiency.
