How to format a document manually in Word 2019

Manually formatting a Word document

This is a step-by-step manual to teach the basics of working in Microsoft Word documents. Eventually, I hope to make it into an online training course but this is the initial self-help version.

  1. First, I tell you how to create your own shortcuts to speed up how you do things.
  2. Secondly, you will learn how to move around in a document.
  3. Then we take an unformatted document and turn it into a business letter.
  4. After that, we format a table in Word.
  5. Thereafter, we format the same information into an Excel table.
  6. I show you how to do some Excel calculations.
  7. Finally, we import the Excel table into the Word document.

Note: This page is a work-in-progress. The list of what you will learn will grow longer. The list items are linked to blog posts.

  1. Microsoft Word terminology
  2. How to create your own keyboard shortcuts
