Your boss told you to follow the "look" of Microsoft Word in designing the user interface of your new insurance form.

What specific elements will you look at?
Why did he want you to do this?

Look at the layout and colors. This includes: where various buttons, such as OK,
are located; icons on toolbars; menu commands and their access keys; the
order of the menus in Word (File is first, Edit is next, and so on.) The people in our company use Microsoft Word regularly, and they will more
easily learn a new application that has an interface that looks familiar. Reducing
their learning curve saves training time and expense
