If you’re looking to learn how to make a calendar in Word, then this tutorial will show you how to use the calendar tool to your advantage. In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to use the different buttons, tabs, and options that are available to you, and which features of your calendar settings you should adjust to best suit your needs.
The initial step is to create a new Word document from the Start menu. You should have a toolbar that allow you to do just this (click on the icon), as well as a toolbar for Options that allows you to adjust the various options. Most of these options are fairly self-explanatory, but some of them may be slightly different depending on the version of Windows you’re using.
The first thing you want to do is to select the tab. It’s the second option, and it should be set to Show only calendar dates in the current month.
The next step is to select the calendar date options for the calendar date box. This should be set to show calendar dates in the current month and is usually found in the top right corner of the calendar. This should be fine, but you may want to change it to show dates in the previous month if you’re having problems with the current month calendar showing up as it was supposed to.
It’s also important to set the number of months displayed in the bar at the bottom of the window. The default setting should be four, but there’s no harm in leaving it at three to test out. If you choose to leave it at three, you should also be able to see the current month as a blue background.
Lastly, you’ll want to select the Edit button. The Edit menu should be located on the toolbar, and it should have the Toolbar button just to the left of it. By clicking this button, you can adjust various aspects of your calendar.
One setting that you’ll want to set is the color used for the font, and you should set this to white or blue if you use a monochrome program (such as Microsoft Word). This will make it easier to read the text in your calendar as well as if you’re going to print it out. Make sure that you don’t choose black as your text color, as it can make the text look a bit blurry, especially when it’s printed out.
These are the main settings that you should use when making a calendar in Word. Experiment with each of these options to see what will work best for you, and if you have any questions, you should check out the help file included with the software.
