Word Tip of the Day

Preview files before you open them (Word 97/2000/2002)

Word allows you to preview a document's contents without opening it. To access the Open dialog box, choose File | Open, click the Open button on the Standard toolbar, or press [Ctrl]O. In the Open dialog box, select the file you want to preview. Next, click the dropdown arrow next to the Open dialog box's Views button, and then choose Preview. (In Word 97, simply click the Preview button.) A preview pane appears along the Open dialog box's right side and displays the selected document's contents (they may take a few seconds to load). You can preview a different document just by clicking on it. The preview window can display the contents of any file Word is able to open. Once you've activated the Preview view, it remains the Open dialog box's default view until you change it.
