Word 2013 can not only open a PDF document, it also enables you to edit it—without need of a third-party application. You can also edit the data inside tables and move images around the document. When you’re finished, you can save the document as either a PDF or a Word file. This is a must-have feature for anyone who works with PDFs frequently.
There are two methods for opening and working with PDF files in Word 2013.
Open MS Word
Choose File -> Open
Browse to the folder and select the desired PDF document. The file will open and you can now edit it directly in Word.
Browse to the file location and right click on the file.
Choose Open with-> and select the Word icon.
If this is the first time to open a PDF from Word, you will need to select -> Choose default program and select Word from the list. The PDF file will open in Word and now you can edit as needed.
The main advantage of PDF files is that you can convert almost any document type or picture format to PDF so that other users can also view the file on their computers or mobiles, without worrying about the file type.

A picture is worth a thousand words, so why not save yourself from typing a thousand words by inserting a screenshot instead? No need for extra programs to capture and crop your screenshots. You can easily e-mail a picture of a dialog box, browser screen, or anything else that appears on your desktop by following these simple instructions in Outlook 2010 or Outlook 2013.
Begin by creating a new e-mail, and then click in the body of the message.
Select the Insert tab on the Ribbon
Click the Screenshot command. A tiny dialog box shows you all the current windows open on your desktop so you can choose the one you want to insert. This will insert the entire window.
If you only want only a portion of the window, click on dropdown arrow below the Screenshot command and select the Screen Clipping command. (Tip: Make sure the screen you want to use was the last screen you visited). When the pointer becomes a cross, press and hold the left mouse button and drag the mouse to select the area of your screen that you want to capture. When you release the mouse, the contents of the Screenshot will be inserted into your message.
With just a few clicks, you can avoid unnecessary typing by inserting a screenshot. For more information on scheduling a group class for Outlook 2010 or Outlook 2013, contact Brandy Sommer at 512.794.8440 or email@example.com
Microsoft Office Excel 2010 provides numerous predefined table styles (or quick styles) that you can use to quickly format a table. If the predefined table styles don't meet your needs, you can create and apply a custom table style. Although you can delete only a custom table style, you can remove any table style so that it is no longer applied to the data.
Choose a table style when you create a table:
On the worksheet, select a range of cells that you want to quickly format as a table.
On the Home tab in the Styles group, click Format as Table.
QUICK TIP: Save yourself some time, use Ctrl + T. Click anywhere in the data and click on the Ctrl + T and then press enter. With this keyboard shortcut you do not need to select the data.
Before formatting has been applied.
After formatting has been applied.
Formatting your data as a table will format the heading row, add a filter, set freeze panes, and color the even rows of data all at once. Give this keyboard shortcut a try next time you need to quickly format your data.
One common formatting effect within Word is the application of borders around a paragraph. Word allows you to apply borders to all four sides of a paragraph—you can even have the borders be different from each other, if desired.
After applying border formatting, you may decide that you need some more room between the actual border lines and the text within the paragraph. You can easily adjust this distance by following these steps:
Select the paragraphs you want to affect. (If you only need to format a single paragraph, just make sure the insertion point is within that paragraph.)
Display the Home tab of the ribbon.
In the Paragraph group, click the down-arrow to the right of the Borders tool. Word displays a series of choices, including a number of different borders you could add.
Select borders and Shading. Word Displays the Borders and Shading dialog box.
If you had not previously done so, make sure you select the borders you want to appear around the paragraph.
Click on the Options button. Word displays the Border and Shading Options dialog box.
Use the Top, Bottom, Left, and Right controls to specify, in points, the distance between the respective border and the paragraph text.
There is no feeling like the one you experience when a document closes and you realize you forgot to save your most recent version. Whether your system shut down or you simply forgot, Word 2010’s unsaved document recovery feature can save the day! In just a few clicks, you can recover the most recent version of your document for up to four days after closing it.
While in Word 2010, click the File tab and then choose the Info tab. Click on the Manage Versions button at the bottom of the list and choose the Recover Unsaved Documents option. A dialog box will open that lists any unsaved documents that were closed in the past four days. Simply click on the document of your choice and select Open. This feature also exists in Excel 2010 as Recover Unsaved Workbooks or in PowerPoint 2010 as Recover Unsaved Presentations. Crisis averted!
Adjusting the behavior of the Enter key can be greatly beneficial when inputting data into Excel. Hitting the Enter key to move to the next cell in Excel is a movement we really don’t have to think about anymore – that is, until we are not moved to the desired cell. Luckily, Excel has an option to change the behavior of the Enter key. To access this option, click File in the top left corner of your Excel document, and then click Options.
The Excel Options dialog box will pop up and you will want to choose the Advanced tab. The top item listed allows you to change the behavior of the Enter key. Use the drop down menu to choose whether you want to move down, up, right, or left upon clicking Enter. Once you’ve decide, click OK in the bottom right of the dialog box to save your setting.
Watermarks are an excellent way to ensure continued security for your reports. To add a watermark, first copy the image you would like to use to the Page Header section. Select Go to Report > Section Expert. Select the Page Header under Sections, then check Underlay Following Sections on the Common tab. Click OK, and your report will be watermarked!
If you would like the watermark to appear on the first page of the report only, add it to the Report Header section. Make sure the watermark is light enough to allow your readers to easily read the report!

Go to the Sent Items folder and open the mail which you want to recall or resend. Click on the Office Button located on the top left-hand corner of the Ribbon. Select the Info command, then click the Message Resend and Recall command.
The Recall setting works similarly to previous versions of Outlook. When you click the recall command, the Recall This Message dialog opens. You are prompted whether you simply want to delete copies of your sent message or replace them with a new one. This feature only works for unread messages.
Clicking the Resend command opens your original message in a new Message window. Click the Send button to send the message.
