Create your first Word document I

Word ribbon showing Paragraph and Styles groups

You can make most changes to text from the Font group, but formatting text this way is handy when you want to change the format of just a few characters or words. However, there’s a way to make all the changes we just did with just one command, by using styles.

The styles are on the Home tab, in the Styles group. You just choose the style you want, and the text size, font, attributes, and paragraph formatting are changed for you automatically.

You’ll also use Quick Styles in the practice, to add formatting to the title, heading and subheading of the press release and achieve the results you see in the picture.

Need to make a list?    That’s also something you do from the Home tab, in the Paragraph group (right next to the Font group). You’ll also do that in the practice.
