Programs: Microsoft FrontPage: Lesson #7


Lesson #7: There are many buttons on the toolbars in FrontPage.  In this lesson we will break down the toolbars so that we can better understand what each button is used for.
Main Objectives
  • Establish the toolbars
  • Describe the groups of buttons
  • Show the functions of each button
Objective # 1 The Three Toolbars

 

 

There are three types of toolbars in the FrontPage program, they are the Standard toolbar, the Formatting toolbar, and the Status Bar.
Within each of these toolbars, the buttons fall into certain categories based on their similar functions.
For instance, on the Standard Toolbar the "Create and New Page" button and the "Save to Disk" button deal with new web pages and keeping your page up to date.
Objective # 2 The Standard Toolbar

1)                                   

2)                                      

3)                             

4)                                    

5)                                  

1)     With these buttons you can make a New page, Open an old page, Save your current page or Publish a Web
2)     This section of the toolbar allows you to view a folder list, print your page, preview in a browser or use the spell check on your page content
3)     This area contains the buttons you will use to edit your page, cut, copy, paste, format painter, undo and redo
4)     This is the Insert section of the toolbar you can use these buttons to Insert a Component, Insert a Table, Insert a Picture, and Insert a Hyperlink
5)     These buttons allow you to perform the actions that a normal browser would be able to do, refresh your page, stop any actions, show all spaces or paragraphs, and most importantly give you access to the Help option.
The Standard Toolbar contains all the main buttons that you will need to perform the most basic functions when creating a Web Page using FrontPage
Objective # 3 The Formatting Toolbar

5)                                   

1)     This section contains the HTML style, the font type, and the font size selector buttons which allow you to edit your text easily.
2)     The Bold, Italicize, and Underline give you the ability to change how your text appears on your Web Page. 
3)     These three buttons allow you to change the alignment of your text.  You can choose to justify your text on the left, the right, or to center your text.
4)     The numbered or bulleted list buttons can be used to emphasize certain lists or items on your page.  The Indent buttons can do the same thing by indenting or promoting certain text.
5)     The Highlight button gives the ability to highlight your text so that it stands out clearly on a page.  This same task can also be accomplished by changing the color of your text using the Font color button.
The Formatting Toolbar just gives you more control over your text and how it will appear on your Web Page when it is finished.
Objective # 4 Status Bar

2)

1)     The Normal Tab is the button that is usually selected as you edit your Web Page.  This gives you the application window where you can use the other toolbars to edit your Web Page.
2)     When you select the HTML tab you can view the HTML of your Web Page as you create it.  The HTML is color coded for easy viewing as well.
3)     The Preview tab will let you see exactly what your Web Page will look like as you work on it.
The Workspace Tabs allow you to see your Web Pages at any stage and any angle.
