The learning is a lifelong experience, and human keeps learning till death. We have been writing some tips on different softwares. Today we will start a started guide for word. This guide will primarily focus users at beginner level or for starters of MS word. The Office pack is very complicated and useful tool. You can perform almost anything that you want to do during writing tasks. When I first started learning the word, I thought I could just cover it in few months, but it’s been five years, and I have worked in this application since then. MS word is always evolving and getting better with time, and now million of users are benefiting from this fantastic application worldwide.
Out tutorial will primarily focus on Microsoft package 2013 but for all my users, you must remember that MS word command menus are more or less same . its designed main vary with version but commands are almost same especially in MS 2010, 2013 and the latest 2016 version. So these Guides can also be useful for peoples working with MS office 2010 and 2016. If there will be any change in the command, it will be mentioned in the post. So let us get started;
Basic tasks in Word 2013.

Each time you start Word 2013, you can choose a template from the gallery, click a category to see the templates it contains or search for more templates online. (If you’d rather not use a template, just click the Blank document.)
Open a document:
If you’re already in Word, click File > Open and then browse to the file’s location.
When you open a document that was created in earlier versions of Word, you see Compatibility Mode in the title bar of the document window. You can work in compatibility more or you can upgrade the document to use features that are new or enhanced in Word 2013.
