Opening an Existing Document
If you have a document that you have already been working on, you can open it from Word.
You can do so in three ways:
- Click File > Open
- Click the Open button on the Standard toolbar
- Press Ctrl + O
The Open dialogue box will appear. Navigate to the location of the saved document using either the Look in list at the top or the shortcuts on the left, select the document and click Open.
If the document you are looking for was used recently, it can be opened by clicking the File menu and selecting it from the list of recent documents at the bottom.
