Microsoft Word 2010
There’s more than one way to open a document. If desired you can open a document
as read only, as a copy (so as not to accidentally overwrite the old
one). You can also specify the application to open the document with (this
is particularly useful for Web development when you can choose to open the document
in an Internet Explorer window.)
- Click on File in the ribbon bar then choose Open. (Or press Ctrl+O - letter O, not number zero)
Alternatively, you can select Recent from the File Tab to display a list of the documents you have worked on recently.
- Navigate to the drive and folder where
the document is that you wish to open.
- Double-click on the document that you wish to open or click once
on the file you wish to open then click on the
button: Note the following choices:
- Choose Open to open the document (same as a double-click).
- Choose Open Read-Only to open the document with a read-only condition
– meaning you will not be able to save any changes made to the document unless
you use Save As.
- Choose Open as Copy to make a copy of the document. Should you choose
Save after making changes you will be forced to specify a new file
- Choose Open in Browser to open a htm or html document in a browser window (e.g. Internet Explorer).
- Choose Open with Transform to open an xml document and choose a Transformation.
- Choose Open in Protected View to disable editing and minimize threats from potential viruses.
- Choose Open and Repair: For documents that may have become corrupted.
- Choose Show previous versions to search for previous versions of a document.
Tip: To open several documents at once, select the documents
first, then choose Open.
