Quick Tables in a Microsoft Word Document are already made and with a predefined format, structure, and layout. These Quick Tables are saved into one of the Building Block Galleries ready for us to use. By using Quick Tables, we have the access to use many of the most used Table Layouts.

First, we must place our insertion point where we want the Table to appear in our Document. Once done, we must select the Insert tab and from the left area of the ribbon we locate the area named Tables as shown in the image below.
