So we have covered all the ways to open a document in Word, and now it is just fitting that we cover the ways to close documents. This is much, much shorter and easier.
Follow the steps below:
- Click the Close button (i.e., the X in the upper-right corner of your window). Only your document will be closed, not the program.
- Or, on your File tab, select Close.
- And there is my favorite, you guessed it, a shortcut! Alt + F4.
