They are commonly used in offices and classrooms.   If you are ready to learn more, please check out this site from GCFLearnFree.  To use this site, it it best if you know which version you are using (for example, Office 2007 or Office 2010).   To learn more about versions and operating systems, please review the Learn Computer Terminology file (you need Adobe Acrobat Reader to open the file, it is free).
