Get Microsoft Office help using the Ribbon and new Backstage view to produce documents in MS Word 2010.
Word files are called documents. When you start a new project in Word, you'll need to create a new document, which can either be blank or from a template. You'll also need to know how to open an existing document.
To save time, you can create your document from a template, which you can select from the New Document pane. We'll talk about templates in a later lesson.
If you've opened a file recently, you can also access it from the Recent Documents list. Just click on the File tab and select Recent.
