OpenOffice Tutorial: Open a Microsoft Word Document using the toolbar
- To open a Microsoft Word document using the toolbar, first look for the folder icon in the toolbar. It should look like this.
- This is the "Open" button. Click on it once.
- The "Open" window should appear. In this area, you should see the documents that you can open, which includes Microsoft Word documents.
- To make it easier to find Word documents though, let's filter the list. Look for the "Files of Type" field and click on its down arrow here.
- Then, you should then see a list of file types appear. Look for the option "Microsoft Word 97/2000/XP (*.doc)" and click on it once.
- Good! This area should now only show folders, and Microsoft word documents. Just click once on the document you want to open to select it.
- Afterwards, click on "Open."
- Great! We have opened the Microsoft Word document using the toolbar. Congratulations!
