Microsoft’s DOCX format is not only used by millions of businesses to produce all kinds of documents and images, but it is also being used in the most recent release of Microsoft Windows to create file templates for Microsoft Office. So, what exactly does this mean?
If you’re an IT professional, and you need to create a document or image for use with your Microsoft Windows system, or even just to see if it will work on that system, the help that you need will be right at your fingertips. That’s because you can create the document and the image directly from the Microsoft DOCX format. A simple click will bring up the appropriate dialog box, allowing you to use the rest of the document creation features that you will find in the Microsoft suite of office applications.
Before You Start
There are a few things that you should know before you create a Microsoft DOCX file. First, you want to make sure that you have a laser printer in order to create a document with the full Microsoft Office package. If you don’t have one, you may find that the format is not compatible with the document creation software.
Second, you want to make sure that you are operating with Microsoft’s default font settings. The default is often “Dyslexia” but other fonts will also work. Third, you want to make sure that you are using the size that is the correct size for your document.
If you are going to be creating a Microsoft DOCX file, it will need to be opened with the same application that you would open a Word document. That is usually Microsoft Word. The dialog box that opens up when you open up Microsoft Word will allow you to choose the default font that you want.
The first thing that you will find when you open up Microsoft Word is the ability to create a document. You’ll find the “Create Document” tool that you’ll use in the bottom left of the ribbon bar. Click this tool and you will find a dialog box. In this dialog box, you will find the necessary options that you will need to modify to create the document.
Next, you will need to click on the “Edit” button that appears. From here, you will find the option to open the document from your current workstation or folder. Either way, you will find the option to save the document.
If you have a number of documents that you need to be working on, you may find that it is easier to use Microsoft’s “File” feature. This allows you to open and edit a series of files all from the same place. The options you have when using this feature will be found at the top of the “File” menu.
With a document selected, click on the “Save As” menu option. You will see the options that are available, such as the name of the document, where you would like the document saved, and the file type that the document is saved as. Once you have selected this option, you will need to click on the “Save” button.
To actually read the document, you will need to select it from the window that is shown. Microsoft Word will prompt you with the “Read Screen” option that you will find at the bottom of the dialog box.
- If you click on this option, the dialog box will return to its default screen where you will be able to read the document that you created.
- If you are an IT professional, or outsourcing IT needs, you may find that you use Microsoft Office a lot, so using Microsoft DOCX is a great way to create documents for use in your system.
- Not only will it be simple to create a document, but it will be easy to open a documentfrom Microsoft Word.
