We are going to create, edit, and save a word document. This document will be submitted to the class portal for grading.


  1. Open Microsoft Word by clicking the Start Menu button and either navigating to Word or typing “word” into the search bar.
  2. Word will open into the backstage view.

    Backstage View

  3. Click on the Blank Document template.
  4. In the document, type out a brief introduction for yourself answering these questions:

    • What is your name?
    • What is your program/major?
    • What is a question about computers that you would like answered?

    This is kind of what we're looking for.

  5. When you are finished typing, click the File tab to return to the backstage view.
  6. Click Save As

    Click "Save As"

  7. Click Browse to open the file explorer.
  8. Navigate to your itech 100 folder which you created in the file manager tutorial. Give this file a logical name. Ensure that it’s being saved as a Word Document (.docx). Click Save.

    Your "Save As" dialog should look kind of like this.

  9. You can exit Word now. Finally, you will upload this file to class portal. Wait for instructions from the instructor for how to do this.
