The first, thing they might ask you will be opening a document. We can insert or open documents from many places. For example, we can insert documents from OneDrive or from the recent files.

Sharing (Microsoft Word 2016 Exam preparation)

This is another thing, which you have to take preparation. In most cases, you will need the sharing options. You can share documents with email, presenting online and posting it on a website. As I think, they are much useful for everyone. Office workers and blog writers must know these things.

All of these options are in the sharing section in File backstage view. I will start explaining from email.

Once you find the option of sharing with email click on that. After clicking new options will appear. Would you like to send the email as an attachment, as a PDF file, as and XPS file or internet fax. Just select any one of them. After you click on any of them, a small window will appear and you have to provide the information like your email and the receiver email address. That is how you send an email directly from Microsoft word 2016. Be sure they will ask this.

The second important option in sharing is “post to blog”. We can post our document to our website directly from Microsoft word 2016. Click on the post to blog option from the sharing section. A new Microsoft word window will open but with fewer tabs and fewer options. Look at the following picture.

Share and Email

There are few options left in the sharing section. The options are very easy to use.


They might ask you about the tabs and the groups in the tab. Most of the questions will be from the mailing and references tabs. In mailing and references tab, you will find many options that are difficult to use. You should not forget the tabs that appear after inserting tables. Layout and design tabs that will appear after inserting tables or contents like the picture, SmartArt, shapes.

Design, layout, and home tabs are not much important because the options are very easy. Everyone can change the text size, colors, and insert headings and subheadings. You may review the tabs once if you are not sure completely. Also in layout tab, there are not much-complicated options to get confused. By clicking on each option you will know the ability them.
