About Microsoft Word training

With Activia, you can check your skill level (see the button on the right) which ensures you book on the correct course.   This facility is also invaluable when putting together training programmes or bespoke courses for numbers of delegates.

We can also tailor your Microsoft Word training to your needs, or to your company project requirements, taking you from first principles to whatever level you want to achieve.

About Microsoft Word

Released as a word processing tool, this highly versatile programme allows users to create and print documents using a range of layouts, font sizes and colours. The software permits other functions too, which significantly enlarge its capabilities to make it a valid tool for business or personal users. Tables can be added at strategic points within a document and populated with data.  By using Word's pre-loaded headings, a user can quickly create a Table Of Contents for reporting purposes and add annotations to a file for colleagues to review.

Our Approach

Sharing ideas and generally engaging with others is an important part of any training course, which is why Activia encourages its delegates to interact.  Our all-inclusive course fees mean you’ll also be able to make your booking without worrying about any further costs.

History Of Microsoft Word

As with a lot of Microsoft applications, Word started out as something entirely different.  Originally entitled ‘Multi-Tool’ Word – and developed by a company called Xenix systems – it was released in 1983.  The programme wasn’t just used for the conventional home PC and ran on other systems too, such as the Atari ST.  Word represented a true departure from convention, being the first editing package of its type to work with a mouse.

Word 2000

Although Word 2000 did not include a huge number of new features, it did come complete with an updated Office Clipboard that let users copy and paste large numbers of different items. Poignantly, the 2000 release was the last version of Word to utilise the MAC OS.

Word 2003

Word 2003’s compatibility with XML language is worth noting, as it meant that other programmes could now understand files received in this format.  Its Reading Function lets users analyse and preview data without changing the makeup of their files (for example, they can see what a font size/style looks like before applying it).

Word 2007

There’s no doubt that the ribbon interface upset quite a few Microsoft customers when it was released as part of Office 2007’s suite of programs.  But in fact, this new feature proved to be very successful – organising functions into related groups that are broken up into tabs at the top of the screen.

Word 2010

Historically, Microsoft applications were known for providing limited security protection to users when opening unknown files. Word 2010 overcame this limitation by defaulting immediately to protected mode, thus preventing any changes from being made to the file/s in question until the user disabled security by clicking a button.

Word 2013

SkyDrive was the biggest selling point of Word 2013.  By accessing this part of the programme it was possible to share a document with other users and receive notifications when they had made changes to it.  To make things simple, the preview function initially showed the non-annotated copy of the file – although you could change this if you needed to look at comments other people had added.
