You can enter Greek letters or symbols (such as Gamma, Omega, Pi, Sigma or Theta) in Microsoft Word documents in several ways. In this article, we’ll look at different ways to insert Greek symbols.
In Microsoft Word 2010 and later versions, you can have word speak or read a document aloud to you. You will need to add the Speak command to your Quick Access Toolbar or the Ribbon to use this feature. Once you’ve added the command, simply click Speak and Word will read the selected text aloud.
You can insert formulas in Word tables to perform basic calculations. These formulas can include functions such as SUM or AVERAGE or basic operators. When you insert formulas in Word tables, you are really inserting fields so the fields will need to be updated if the data in the table changes. For more complex calculations, it’s usually best to create formulas in Excel where they will update automatically.
You can stop Word from changing formatting automatically in your documents by turning off AutoFormat As You Type settings in the AutoCorrect dialog box. If text or formatting is changing, there are several options you can turn off.
You can keep text together in several ways in Word. If you want to keep words or characters together, you can use nonbreaking spaces or nonbreaking hyphens or dashes and insert them using a dialog box or a keyboard shortcut. If you want to keep lines or paragraphs together on the same page, you can apply settings in the Paragraph dialog box (which can be built into styles if you use styles).
You can insert the does not equal sign (not equal to sign) in a Word document using Insert Symbol, a keyboard shortcut, an AutoCorrect entry or an Alt shortcut.
If you want to find and replace text or numbers in Word, you can use wildcards if you are not able to find an exact match. To use advanced find and replace techniques in Word, you will need to expand the Find and Replace dialog box.
If you work with tables in Microsoft Word, it’s a good idea to show gridlines. Table gridlines don’t print but borders do print. If borders are removed from a table, users may not recognize the table if gridlines are not displayed.
You can search for text in Word documents using the Navigation Pane or the Find and Replace dialog box. There are several advanced options for searching for text including using wildcards and matching upper and lower case.

If you have inserted a video on a PowerPoint slide, you can display a custom thumbnail (or Poster Frame) for the video during a slide show. The thumbnail will display when you run a PowerPoint slide show and disappears when you start the video. For most videos, the thumbnail that displays is the first frame of the video clip. You can use the Poster Frame command to display a different frame in the video clip or a picture from another source as a thumbnail. A picture thumbnail could be either an image or an icon.
During a PowerPoint slide show, you can change your mouse into a laser pointer to focus attention on a specific area on your slide. You can show or hide the built-in laser pointer using keyboard shortcuts or by using the context menu.
You can add audio in PowerPoint from a file on your PC or from a shared drive. Audio is played during a slide show and you can insert music, sound clips, or voice recordings. Since audio files are copied into PowerPoint presentations by default, they can increase file size and may need to be compressed. To play audio, your computer must be equipped with a sound card and speakers.
