Get to know Word 2007 III: Make documents look great

Click Play to view an animation showing how a style will look in your document and how to select different styles.

"Press Release" should stand out and announce what the document is about.

You could add bold or italic formatting for emphasis, change the font size, and then change the font color. But instead of doing all these steps separately, you can apply Quick Styles, ready-made sets of formatting that you can use to change font, font size, or font color with one click. You can easily format titles and headings, for example, by using Quick Styles.

To add a style, select the text you want to change. Then, on the Ribbon, on the Home tab, in the Styles group, place the pointer over a style. You can see how a style will look in your document just by pointing to it, without having to click it.

If you don't see the style that you want, click the More Button image button to expand the Quick Styles gallery. When you see a style that suits you, click it.

You don't have to worry about making mistakes when you select a style. You can always change the style to another by using these same steps, or you can delete formatting and styles. You'll see how in the practice.

Click Play to see how to apply title and heading styles.
