When the File menu drops down, click Open.

Windows shows you the Open window, usually with several documents available.

3

Point at your desired document, and double-click it to open it.

The program opens the file and displays it on the screen.

When you are finished working with the file, click the red X in the upper-right corner.

This closes the file.
