I’m not sure if you are really a beginner on using computers but I’m assuming that you are a beginner.

To open a document or file in Microsoft Word, just press CTRL + O and the Open dialog box will appear on the screen just like what is described in the image below.

This is also the shortcut used in all other applications.

Besides using the CTRL + O shortcut combination there is also another alternative besides using this shortcut.

You can press ALT + F + O and the same dialog box will appear on the screen.

Keep pressing the ALT key while pressing the next combinations F and O.
