Computers Today is a fictional newsletter about computers. You will create a flyer to try to increase subscriptions. You will insert a picture that is NOT in Microsoft Clip Gallery.

These exercises use files from the word resource files. The default location for these files is c:\My Documents\complit101\words\ You cannot make changes to these files and save them in the same place. Save the changed documents to your Class disk. This keeps the original resource files intact in case you need to start over or another student will be using this same computer.

In future lessons you will see the same fictional organizations and people that you meet in these exercises: The City Theater, the City Soccer Team, and Computers Today. For exercise 4 you get to suit yourself.
