Microsoft Word is a piece of software which is known as a program. We open a program by finding the shortcut within a computer and selecting it. We will begin this lesson by finding the shortcut to the Microsoft Word program on a Windows computer.
We will first begin by finding the "Start" menu on the computer. For Windows machines, this is located at the bottom left corner and is denoted by the Windows logo.
Once the "Start" menu is opened, navigate to the search bar. We will use this to search for the desired program.
Begin typing "Word" into the search bar, and the shortcut to the program should appear at the stop of the start menu. Open the program by double-clicking the shortcut.
