New to Office 2013? Grab these Quick Start guides to help you get going

Office 2013 Word Quick Start

Are you new to recently released Office 2013? Having a hard time adjusting to the new interface and features? Microsoft has made available a Quick Start guide for each application available in Office 2013, to make your experience that much better.

The Quick Start Guides are printable guides that offer useful tips, shortcuts, and screenshots to help users find their way across the new suite of applications. If you are on Windows 8, you can even open and view these guides using the Windows 8 Reader app or you can use a PDF viewer to open them. The Word Quick Start guide, for example, mentions that Word 2013 "looks different from previous versions", so Microsoft created a guide to help minimize the learning curve. There are Quick Start guides for Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, OneNote, Outlook, and Publisher (as well as Visio and Project). Grab the guides below or hit the source to grab them.
