Commercial Software copyrighted software that you must buy before you use it Shareware- Copyrighted software that you can try before you buy it. Free to copy and share but must pay after trial. Freeware-The company is giving away copyrighted software and it is yours to install freely unless you try to sell it. Open Source-source code(what makes the program function and work) is open to the public. Allows people to add on to or take away from the software and design. Creative Commons-A Creative Commons license lets you dictate how others may use your work. The Creative Commons license allows you to keep your copyright but allows others to copy and distribute your work provided they give

you credit and only on the conditions you specify.

Application Window Application Screen Sections. Title Bar Usually found at the top of the application and shows the programs name Ribbon Control Center for using the application and will also have the ribbon tabs such as home, insert, page layout, etc Home Tab Where most of the common commands and settings are found. Quick Access Toolbar Common functions that a user performs.

View Control- Allows the user to see Print Preview, Web Layout, Full Screen, Outline & Draft Help..I Need Office Help!!!!!! Develop a quick help page for a new Microsoft Office user. The help guide should explain the basic elements that are found in the Microsoft Office environment such as the Home Tab, The ribbon, The title bar, the

close button, the scroll bars, the quick access tool bar and the view controls. The help guide should address each of the above items by showcasing a picture of the particular item and offer a brief description of what the item is used for within an application window. Vertical and Horizontal Applicaitons Vertical Application designed for a very limited and specific purpose such as the software a restaurant would use for taking

orders or a bank would use for banking functions. Horizontal Application a general purpose program that meets the needs of many different users such as Microsoft Word or Macromedia Fireworks. Who Would Need It??????? Think of a situation in which a vertical application would be needed and preferred

over a horizontal application. Design a T-Chart concerning Horizontal and Vertical Applications. Within the TChart students should provide 3 examples of each type of application/software. At the bottom of the T-Chart define both horizontal and vertical software What A View!!!!!! Print Layout view

Standard documents, such as letters, memos, and reports, are often written and edited in Print Layout view. One advantage of working in this view is its adherence to WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get). Full Screen Reading view If want to read or review a document, Full Screen Reading view can help simplify the task. What A View!!!!!

Web Layout view Use Web Layout view to create, view, and edit pages as they'll appear online when opened in a browser. Outline view Use Outline view to create, view, and edit outlines.

Draft view Work in Draft view when speed is of primary importance. In Print Layout view, physical pages and breaks are drawn. Draft view displays a document as a continuous text scroll; page breaks are denoted by dashed lines. View The Document Create a graphical design that showcases and describes the various views that are available within a

program such as Microsoft Word. The views that need to be showcased are Print Layout, Full Screen Reading, Web Layout, Outline and Draft. Capture an image of each icon that is used within the view ribbon tab and then define what the view enables you to see once it is selected.
