About the videos that are available in some articles
Some articles include links to short videos. The videos are "show me" movies that illustrate or explain Word functionality. Each video opens in a new window or on a new tab (depending on your browser).
You can identify the videos by a box with a red triangle and s and the SHOW ME text as seen below. To start a video, click the video title. You can at any time close a video window or tab by clicking the Close button (i.e. the cross) of the demo window or tab.
The duration of each video is shown in parenthesis after the title.

Troubleshooting - video does not work
Some videos on this website require Adobe Flash Player in order to work. For security reasons, some browsers block Adobe Flash from running automatically. Your browser settings may also entirely prevent Adobe Flash Player from running.
Below you will find tips on what you can do if you click a video link and the video does not start to play.
PROBLEM 1 - You see a box saying "Select for Adobe Flash"
You can click in the Select for Adobe Flash box. A dialog box may then appear, asking you whether you want to Allow Once or Always Allow. To allow the video/demo to run now, click Allow Once.
PROBLEM 2 - You see a dialog box, asking you whether you want to Allow Once or Always Allow
To allow the video/demo to run now, click Allow Once.
PROBLEM 3 - You see a blank screen when clicking the video/demo link
This may occur, e.g. in FireFox. This happens if you don't have Adobe Flash Player installed or if your version of Adobe Flash Player needs to be updated.
You can either search for "Adobe Flash Player" to find Abobe's download page and install it. TIP: Make sure to keep and eye on any "optional offers" that are ticked in the window from where you can download Adobe Flash Player - turn OFF such "offers" if you don't want extra programs to be installed at the same time.
Alternatively, use another browser.
