Windows 7
New Document

Hello All and welcome to what is probably the daftest question you'll ever read on here.
After many happy years with XP, I've installed 7. Finding my way slowly but..................for the life of me, I can't find out how to open a fresh page on which to write a new document. I've probably seen the tab but don't understand it and I'm going mad because - - it MUST be simple. Can anyone help an old bloke with a bad hearty who is risking an attack looking for this?

If you are referring to a .txt document, I normally open a new one on the desktop by right clicking in a blank spot on the desktop, select New, then Text Document.

If you want a bit more function in the text editor, go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > right click on Wordpad > Pin to Taskbar. Then you have a convenient program always in sight.
