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.

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.
