How do I print a word document?

Just upgraded pc from Windows XP to Windows 7, now when try to print a word document (its word 2007) cannot do this because I can't find the Print button!
I would normally click File/Print but can't find "File"!?
Along the top of the screen are the other items..Home, Page layout, Mailings, View etc but no "File"?
Any help appreciated.

to see the standard menus, press the Alt key
to print, you can try Ctrl+P

I'm guessing that what you see is the "ribbon" - all functions are in those categories you list (Home, layout, etc), but it takes a while to get used to the Ribbon ui (I never liked it, but....)

You also might be able to customize the UI with a quick launch quick access bar. I'm not sure if you can do this in Office, but I have done it with Windows Mail

Anyway, try right clicking on any icon in a ribbon category - is there an "add to quick launch quick access bar" option?

This places icons above (or below - also customizable) the ribbon. Best I can offer - hope it helps.
