To give a command to Office 2007, you need to follow these basic steps:
1. Select an item (text, picture, table, and so on) that you want to modify.
2. Click a tab that contains the command you want.
3. Click the command you want to use.
Command icons work in one of three ways, as shown in Figure 1-15:
Clickable icons: Clicking an icon immediately chooses a command to alter your data. The Bold and Italic icons are examples of icons that you click only once to choose them.
List box icons: Some icons display a downward-pointing arrow to the right. Clicking these icons displays a list of additional options. The Font and Font Size icons are examples of list box icons.
Gallery icons: Some icons display a downward-pointing arrow that displays a drop-down list of additional commands, called a gallery.
Commands appear as icons, list boxes, or galleries.
