Section 1: Hello and Welcome!

Thank you for taking the Word 2016 Key Ingredients 30-minute course! You will learn how to set up your screen to be productive. And the mysteries are solved here on how to master tabs, indents, and bullets & numbering.  Let's get started...

Section 2: MS Word 2016 Crash Course

Customize the Quick Access bar so your favorite buttons and tools are always in view. No more hidden buttons! And a couple new ones that the power users always have handy.


The File ribbon is often ignored, but incredibly life altering when you know the secrets beheld there. It's a short video that will change your file management within Word.


Tab settings finally revealed to be as easy as they were on a typewriter! Well, almost as easy... Watch this "How-To" video and you'll get it.


Indents are best resolved by using the ruler and this video shows you how. 


MS Word likes to control our document spacing, but in this lesson you will finally take back control and master the line and paragraph spacing tools.


This envelope tip is possibly one of the best hold-overs from early Word that is almost a forgotten feature. I revive it here.


Bullets and Numbering have the ability to make you CRAZY! This video shows you how to master and be-the-boss of them. It's actually fun after you see how it's done.


There is actually a Bigger Picture to Word that is revealed in this video. When you understand the base concept, all the rest falls into place. You will find yourself finally "in charge" of your documents rather than "at the mercy of them".
