You use the standard computer command Open to fetch a document that you previously saved as a file in Word 2007. To grab a file from your disk drive in Word 2007 — to open it — you follow three simple steps.


Click the Office Button and choose the Open command from the menu.

The Open dialog box materializes.


Click a document’s name with the mouse.

The Open dialog box contains a list of documents previously saved to disk. Your job is to find the one you want to open.


Click the Open button.

Word 2007 opens the highlighted file, carefully lifting it from your disk drive and slapping it down on the screen.

After the document is open, you can edit it, print it, or do whatever you want with it.
