    2. If you get a Open Document dialog window like the one in the following image, click on the OK button to open it.Open document warning dialog window

      This dialog window appears because the New Document button links to a template file stored as part of the Shared Documents library. The default template is just a blank Word document but that is what causes Word to load and present you with a blank page. In a later part of this course, you will create custom templates and associate them with libraries.

    3. Microsoft Word should open to a blank page. Enter the following text into the document: "SharePoint 2013 is a great collaboration product." and click on the save icon to save your changes.
    4. Enter "Document for testing" as the name for the new file in the Save As dialog window, and click the Save button to save the file back to the Documents library.
    5. Close Microsoft Word and note the new document in the library. You may need to refresh the page if you don't see it in the list of documents.
