In Microsoft Word, there are many different views of your document you can use when you are editing your document.  Some are good for seeing what your document will look like, some are good to see an outline of your document, and others are just plain text entering.

Different Views

1.  All the different views can be accesses by clicking the View menu and clicking the View type you want from the menu that appears.

Here's a list of the different views available to you in Microsoft Word.  Please note: Some of these are specific to Word 2000 only.

Print Layout View

Print layout view will allow you to see exactly how objects will be positioned on a page.  This view is also useful when setting up margins.


Web Layout View

Web layout view should be used when you are working on web pages in Word.  Backgrounds will appear and the graphics and other objects will be aligned just as if you were in a web browser; only you will still be able to edit the document while in this view.


Normal View

You can use normal view when you are just typing text.  The layout of graphics and other objects is simplified in this view.  If you are working with objects other than text, you should use Print Layout View.


Outline View

When you are working with large documents, or documents that are difficult to follow along with, you can use Outline View.  Microsoft Word will simplify the structure of the document and make it easy to move and edit different parts.  The different parts of the document will be separated with different types of bullets and indented lines.
