Word 2007: Using the View Tab

Word 2007: Using the View Tab

You’ve probably already used the View tab at one time or another if you’ve been using Word for even a short time. But, since our next few topics utilize this tab, this seemed like a good time to review the groups and commands available on this versatile tab.

The View tab’s primary purpose is to assist you by providing different ways to view your document.


Figure 3. Document Views Group

The first group on the View   tab is the Document Views group. This group provides a similar   function to the View bar located in the lower-right corner of your screen by   providing commands for switching between Print Layout, Outline and Full   Screen views.

The next group, Show/Hide,  simply provides a set of check boxes for common screen elements such as the   Ruler and Gridlines. Simply check a box to enable an element and uncheck a   box to hide a specific element from view.

Figure 5. Zoom Group

The Zoom group   provides quick commands for changing the zoom level of your current document   view. Just like the Document Views   group, an additional zoom option can be found on the lower-right portion of   your screen in the form of a slider bar.

The Window group   contains commands for splitting and arranging documents as well as a command   for switching between multiple open Word windows.

Finally, the Macros group contains only one   command, Macros. Here, you can view and record Word macros.
