Microsoft Word is one of the most popular text editing and formatting pieces of software as it offers pretty much everything you need to allow you to create the text document you want. It is fully featured, versatile, and reliable.

What is Microsoft Word?

Microsoft Word is a text editor and word processing software created by Microsoft in the early stages of software development. It has become one of the most used programs of its genre as it provides an incredible amount of features to create well-formatted and diversified text documents. It also features everything you need to collaborate with other people and boost productivity.

What are the key features of Microsoft Word?

  • Text editing: Microsoft Word is much more than a simple text editor as it allows you to edit and format your text the way you want. You can manually or automatically change the text size, font, text space, alignment, etc. You can also keep everything automatically formatted and organized thanks to the table of contents features that allow you to pre-format every kind of header, title, and sub-titles with the proper font and size to ensure your text properties are congruent. It also provides many more features like text highlighting, text effects, conversion to web pages, etc.
  • Collaboration: Thanks to all the collaborative tools, you can easily collaborate and work with other people. The Comments feature allows anyone you share the document with to leave notes that can be reviewed later and marked as resolved. You can also switch to Reviewing mode and track changes so that other people can see what modifications you suggested and then either accept them or not. It truly offers what you need when it comes to collaborating. Another essential feature is the ability to switch to online mode to make your document shareable with other people.

You can even add 3D images and models. That way, you can enhance your document and make the most out of it with the type of content you want.
  • Auto-saving and synchronization: If you activate synchronization, the software automatically saves your file when you edit it. You will never lose your work anymore.
