Now, practice using the keyboard to work with toolbars to perform some simple tasks.

Although the toolbars are slightly different in the various Office programs, the basic navigation is exactly the same. Once you know how to use the toolbars in one program, you can use the same methods in all the others.

About the practice session

When you click Practice in Excel, a practice worksheet will download to your computer and open in Excel, and a separate window with practice instructions will appear alongside (see picture).

Note     You need to have Excel 2003 installed on your computer.

Tips

  • If the practice instructions aren't visible, or if they disappear when you click in Excel, click the Excel Help taskbar button and then click the Auto Tile button in the upper-left corner of the instructions.
  • If the practice instructions cover up Excel, click the Auto Tile button in the upper-left corner of the instructions.
