You can create standard numbered and bulleted lists by typing in a way that triggers the AutoFormat
feature to apply list formatting.
When you need as much space as possible on screen to view a document, you can collapse (or minimize) the
Ribbon and then restore it very simple.
When you create a new blank document, any text you type appears in the default font, which is called
Calibri, at a font size of 11 points, which is a standard size for text in everyday
documents (such as letters or reports).
Having your 25 most recently used documents on the File tab, in the Open menu, is handy,
but you may find it's not enough. You can increase the number shown up to 50, and you can pin
(fasten) particular documents to the menu so that they remain there even if you haven't used them recently.
In some document layouts (e.g., magazines), you may need to run a series of text boxes that contain a
sequence of text. Word lets you flow text from one text box to another: When the first text box is full,
Word automatically moves to the next text box and fills it. If you add or delete text in a text box, Word
adjusts the text in the subsequent text boxes accordingly.
If you use large pictures in a document, its file size increases rapidly. You can reduce this problem by
telling Word to compress the pictures.
As you work on a document, you usually see the results of the field codes that you've inserted instead of
the actual codes themselves. Because of this, these field results may be difficult to distinguish from
standard text, so Word has added a feature called shading that helps you to locate such results.
Creating custom menus in Word is a funny feature you can use to create groups of the options that you use
most often, and then plug them into the menu you name and use yourself.
In Word for Microsoft 365, this feature is no used.
Use the AutoCaption feature if you want to add captions to all items of a particular type
