How to launch a dialog box

A dialog box contains additional commands which are not found on the ribbon; although the ribbon contains most of the commands you will need to use.

 

To access a dialog box launcher:

 

1. Carry your computer mouse to a dialog box launcher button (as seen in the diagram below). A screen tip will appear stating what would happen if you were to click in that box. Presently, we are positioned over the dialog box launcher for the Paragraph group, in the diagram, below.
