Optimize Netbook Note Taking with Microsoft Word

Posted by medliorator on October 26, 2009


There’s a cool feature from Word 2003 which is buried in 2007 for true fullscreen viewing. You can get the button by going to the Word Orb > Word Options > Customize > look under “All commands” and select “Toggle Full Screen View”

I realized you can save a ton of battery life by dimming the screen, and taking notes with a black background and a white/gray font color, the contrast is much better.

Click Esc on your keyboard to exit full screen mode.
