VIDEO: Do you really know how to use Microsoft Word? The Power of Tabs and Indents
I spent part of my lunch hour today remoted into a friend's computer who was having a lot of trouble with Microsoft Word. Like most of you she's an "experience Word user" and would happily put "Proficient in Microsoft Word" on her resume. However, it was pretty clear that there's some powerful aspect to Word that folks aren't exploiting. These kinds of features will save you HOURS reformatting documents later, especially when those docs get long like books and long reports or essays.
I figured I'd do a quick YouTube video and see if there's an interested in a series of these. I like not to waste time OR keystrokes so this was the most efficient way to get the information out there. Within an hour this video already got these nice compliments:
- Absolutely fantastic. This totally blew my mind. I'm not too proud to say that I didn't know any of this.
- Thanks so much. You just saved me a ton of time editing lab documents.
- Time to update my resume and this time the indents will be perfect.
- This video is magic.
So that's telling me that there IS value in videos like this. Check it out and let me know! More importantly, share it with your family and friends and SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube channel.
