Why you might use Microsoft Word

Word is a software application from Microsoft which allows you to create both simple and complex written documents. It offers you functionality to:

  • Format your document, including features to help you create a consist look and feel and easy navigation of longer documents.
  • Share and co-author your document with others.
  • Check for spelling and grammar errors.
  • Review and improve your writing style using feedback from Microsoft Editor.
