Using SharePoint Designer

To use SharePoint Designer, you will need to download and install it. You can find SharePoint Designer here:

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepointdesigner

There is a link that says "Download Sharepoint Designer 2007 for free".

Once you have installed it, all you need is your SharePoint username and password, as well as the SharePoint site URL.

From within the application, go to File, Open Site.

Under Site Name, make sure you put your full site URL: http://yoursiteURLgoeshere .

After clicking Open, you will be asked for your username and password. After you put these in, you'll be connected to your SharePoint site.

The above Microsoft SharePoint Designer site includes "Help and How-to" and "Training" sections on the left hand navigation bar of the site, with helpful documentation and training videos.

Additionally, you may download a desktop training application on how to use SharePoint designer from Microsoft here:
