Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
If you use Microsoft Word at all, you'll probably have frustrations or at least questions. Word Tips has the answers to the Microsoft Word problems.
I don't know everything. I know that's a shock to maybe one or two of you, but it's the truth. One of the techniques I use to make it look like I know more than I really do is to know where to look for information.
Allen Wyatt's Word Tips is one of these places. Yes, I've used Microsoft Word for many, many years and know it very well ... but Word Tips has more answers and more suggestions than I could ever hope to have.
If you've used Word for any length of time you'll know that it's an incredibly powerful tool. And while it has competition, it's still the defacto standard for word processing in the work place.
But with that power comes complexity. And with complexity comes ... well, statements like "why did it do THAT?" or "how do I make it do THIS?"
Word Tips to the rescue.
I regularly send people who've asked me about problems with Microsoft Word over to Word Tips instead - not because I don't necessarily know the answer, but nine times out of 10 Word Tips already has it, written up in easy to understand terms, ready for you to put to use and whip Word into shape.
One of Word's frustrations are the version-to-version changes. Word Tips takes care to call out exactly what version(s) of Word each tip relates to. Of course, if the solution is different for different versions, that's called out explicitly, and the solution for whatever version you're using is presented.
Did I mention there are over 2,800 tips on Word Tips? That's nearly 3,000 ways to use Word to do what you need, nearly 3,000 answers to the questions you might have.
There's more - daily tips, a weekly newsletter, ebooks and more.
But if nothing else, if you use Word at all, check out all of the free and ready to use information on Word Tips.
I recommend it.
