Microsoft Word is a word processing software developed by Microsoft and is part of the Microsoft Office package. Basically, it is a program that allows you to write and modify text according to your requirements. It is one of the most chosen word processors by users all over the world as it is very easy to use. It is supported by almost any operating system and even has a mobile application available for downloading on portable devices.

Gold Standard Tools

Microsoft Word's ease of use makes it accessible to users of all ages and skill levels, while its robustness makes it a preferred choice for professional and academic environments.

To begin with, when you open the processor, you will see a blank page, which is the area where text is entered, and above it a toolbar for you to create texts according to your needs. Some of the most basic tools are the following:

  • Font editor: In this processor you can modify the font type and size, apply different formats such as bold, italics, underline, colors and much more.
  • Undo and redo: If you make a mistake, you can always undo an action or redo it to recover something you deleted.
  • Graphics and images: You can create graphs and tables from scratch to produce more didactic texts or include statistics; you can also insert and edit images to add your text, etc.
  • Spell checker: In Microsoft Word, you can set the language of the text you are writing and use a spelling and grammar checker that detects and highlights mistakes so that you can check them.
  • Review function: With this tool, you can add comments to a file and make revisions with track changes.
  • Print: If the device on which you use this word processor is linked to a printer, you can print the file directly from Microsoft Word.
  • Search: If you need to find something in a file and want to do it quickly, this feature will be very helpful. Just type what you want in the Search bar. This tool is especially useful when you have very large files.
  • Page layout and formatting: Word offers options to modify page layout, such as margins, orientation and paper size, as well as customizable headers and footers.

Explore the processor to discover the thousands of options available.

Create files in a flash

When you open the processor, you have the option of creating a new document —that is, from scratch— or you can choose from the hundreds of templates that Microsoft Word has available. These range from many resume templates to business cards, business reports and invitations. With this option, you will only have to edit the text of the templates, and you will be able to create a file very quickly.

Online access

One of the great advantages of Microsoft is that you can access online and use all the programs in the package, i.e., Microsoft Word is available online. All you have to do is create an account. The online interface is very similar to the desktop version. You can also download the mobile app to use from a smartphone or tablet, so you can use the processor on the go.

When using the online processor, every file you create will be saved in a cloud, and you can collaborate with other people in creating text files. If you run out of space in the cloud, you can purchase more storage by paying a monthly subscription.

In a nutshell

Microsoft Word is one of the most used word processors worldwide for its ease of use and multiple tools. Although many people are unaware of it, the processor has been updated to meet changing demands and has an online version. Despite the years it has been on the market, it is still one of the best word processing tools available.
