In Microsoft Manual of Style.chm, there's a topic titled "Click":

"In general, use click, rather than choose or select, to refer to a
user's choosing or selecting a command or option. If a user can set an
option to use either a single click or a double-click, use the default
mode when documenting a feature. But do explain the various options in
Help and in the user's guide. Do not use click on or click at; 'click in
the window' is acceptable, however. Note It's okay to omit 'click OK' at
the end of a procedure if the interface makes it clear that clicking the
button is necessary to complete the procedure."

Cool. Where does the MMOS mention the Next button?
