When you have completed your initial survey of the Word application window or whenever you have completed your work in the program, you will want to exit the software. More than one way exists to close the Word window, which is the same as exiting the program.
You can exit Word by selecting the File menu and then Exit . Or you can close Word with one click of the mouse by clicking the Word Close ( X ) button in the upper-right corner of the application window.
When you close Word, you might be prompted to save any work that you have done in the application window. If you were just experimenting as you read through this lesson, you can click No . The current document will not be saved, and the Word application window closes . All the ins and outs of saving your documents are covered in Lesson 2, "Working with Documents."
