    The title bar displays the name of the currently active word document. Like other WINDOWS applications, it can be used to alter the size and location of the word window.
  2. Tool Bars
    Word has a number of tool bars that help you perform task faster and with great ease. Two of the most commonly tool bars are the formatting tool bar and the standard tool bar. These two toolbars are displayed just below the title bar. At any point of time any tool bar can be made ON or OFF through the tool bar option of View Menu.

  7. Workspace
    The Workspace is the area in the document window were you enter/type the text of your document.
  8. Main Menu
    The Word main menu is displayed at the top of the screen as shown in the Fig. 9.1. The main menu further displays a sub menu.
