Let’s Go! How will you start MS PROJECT 2010?
You will see this:
- The Quick Access toolbar is an area of the interface where you can put your favorite commands (like undo, save, redo etc.)
- The Tab group focus area of Project together (like file, task, resource,
- The Group is a collection of related commands under one tab (like schedule group under task tab where you can find commands like link tasks, unlink tasks, indent tasks etc)
- Command is a specific action which is performed when you choose it (like cut, copy, paste, etc)
- The View Label is placed along the left edge of the active view. Because MS Project has many views, it is a very helpful reminder of “where you are” i.e. what active view you are using at the moment
- With the View shortcuts you can easily and quickly switch between some of the views in MS project (like gant chart, task usage, team planner and resource sheet)
- The Zoom slider zooms the active view in or out
- The Status bar displays some details like the scheduling of new task, filters applied etc.)
If you are using any of the Office 2010 applications you are familiar with the term Backstage view. You can get there easily. Just click on the File tab. If you
