To call the latest version of Microsoft Word a mere word processor would be an insult to this powerful software package. Learn how to produce everything from simple letters to fully functional Web pages without ever quitting out of Word with Word 2002 for Windows: Visual QuickStart Guide, the must-have companion to this updated Office stalwart.

You can use the flexible, task-based guide as a tutorial or as a quick reference; hundreds of screenshots ensure you’ll never be at a loss as you follow the straightforward steps. Newcomers to Word can start with the basics---text, formatting, and printing--before moving on to objects, tables, and outlines. Word veterans can use the book’s tabbed format to skip straight to specific sections--say, taking Word to the Web--or to quickly brush up on advanced topics, such as working with others (collaborating on documents, tracking changes, and protecting documents) and using other programs with Word (inserting PowerPoint slides into a Word document, for example).
