Unit 2: How to Use Paint

For those who need some assistance with how to use Paint, Microsoft has excellent notes on most aspects of their updated version which comes free with the Windows 7 operating system.

If you have used Paint in Windows XP, but have not seen it since, be prepared for big changes! While many of the features have remained the same, they have reorganized them into the "Ribbon" as they did to most popular Windows software, including Word, Excel, and PowerPoint in 2007. The best feature of the updated Paint???? Unlimited amounts of "Undo" !!!! Thanks Billy.

To get started with Paint and learn the basics, click here.

Note: The two part manual which is attached below is a valuable resource to those who are using Windows XP, but may lead to confusion if you have Windows Vista or Windows 7 on your computer.

Microsoft Office & "The Ribbon"

Ready to get into the wonderful world of Microsoft Office Products?

Microsoft Office has had many versions of its software over the past few decades. This course will focus on 3: Microsoft Office Word, Microsoft Office PowerPoint, and Microsoft Office Excel. The version we currently have at school is Office 2010.

If you have never before seen "The Ribbon", you may want to start by watching the video by clicking the link below. This will help you understand the shift in appearance from Office 2003 products to that seen in Office 2007 and 2010 products.

NOTE: Office 2010 no longer has the "Office button". Instead, Microsoft has returned to using "File".
