Users who have upgraded to Microsoft Office 2013 already can be forgiven if thy have questions about the new features, or aren't quite sure how to navigate the new setup.

Fortunately, Microsoft has posted thorough new quick-start guides and help pages on its website.

"Now available online, the nine guides offer advice on using each of the applications in Office 2013, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Access, OneNote, Project, Visio, and Publisher," writes CNET.

"Each guide comes packaged as a PDF that you can download or view online through Adobe Reader."

"The guides provide screenshots and descriptions of the new features and layouts in Office 2013. They also clue you in as to what's changed in the new applications compared with previous versions. As with any PDF, you can zoom in to any page to get a closer look and search for specific words and terms."

Each of the guides runs less than a dozen pages but is densely-packed with useful information, charts and diagrams.

The Microsoft Outlook 2013 guide, for example, covers the new layout, how to add your account, changing the office theme, scheduling meetings with the calendar, creating and adding email signatures, and a list of simple tasks that might not be readily apparent to new users.

While it's not hard to Google any of this information, the programs are still quite new, so it's handy to have the official methods all in one place before many help sites get updated with the latest tips, tricks and shortcuts.
