Microsoft Word is a word-processing program designed to help you create professional-quality documents. Word helps you organize and write your documents more efficiently. The first version of Windows Word was released in 1989 and it was called Word for Windows 1.0. Every three years Microsoft has released a new version - Word for Windows, Word 95/97/98, Word 2000/2002, Office Word 2003/2007, Word 2010/2013/2016.

Microsoft Word offers the best of all worlds: enhanced features to create professional-quality documents, easier ways to work together with people, and almost-anywhere access to your files. Designed to give you the finest document-formatting tools, Word 2013 also helps you easily organize and write your documents more efficiently, and stay within reach so you can capture your best ideas whenever and wherever they occur.

Do more with your docs: Pop in an online video, open a PDF and edit the content, align pictures and diagrams with minimal fuss. The new Read Mode is clean and distraction-free—and it works great on tablets. Teaming-up is better too, with direct connections to your online spaces and streamlined review features like Simple Markup and comments.

Enjoy the read

Get absorbed in Word documents right from your screen with a new clean, comfortable reading view.

New Read Mode

Enjoy reading with a view that displays your documents in easy-to-read columns on the screen.

Object zoom

Double-tap with your finger or double-click with your mouse to zoom in and make tables, charts and images in your document fill the screen. Focus on and take in the information, then tap or click again outside the object to zoom out and continue reading.

Resume reading

Reopen a document and keep reading right where you left off. Word remembers where you were—even when you reopen an online document from a different computer!

Online video

Watch online videos right in Word, without having to leave the document, so you can stay focused on the content.

Expand and collapse

Collapse or expand parts of a document with just a tap or click. Put summaries in headings and leave it to readers to open the section and read the details if they want.

Work together

Work with others with streamlined collaboration tools.

Save and share files in the cloud

The cloud is like file storage in the sky. You can get to it anytime you’re online. Now it’s easy to share a document using SharePoint or SkyDrive. From there you can access and share your Word docs, Excel spreadsheets, and other Office files. You can even work together with your colleagues on the same file at the same time.

Simple markup

A new revision view, Simple Markup, provides a clean, uncomplicated view of your document, but you still see indicators where tracked changes have been made.

Reply to comments and mark them as done

Comments now have a reply button. You can debate and easily track comments right next to the relevant text. And when a comment is addressed and no longer requires attention, you can mark it as done. It will be greyed out to keep out of your way, but the conversation will still be there if you need to revisit it later.

Add polish and style

With Word you can create more beautiful and engaging documents, and you can work with more media types—like online videos and pictures. You can even open PDFs.
Start with a template

When you open Word, you’re offered a choice of great new templates to help get you started along with a list your recently viewed documents so you can get back to where you left off in no time.

Open and edit PDFs

Open PDFs and edit the content in Word. Edit paragraphs, lists, and tables just like familiar Word documents. Take the content and make it look great.

Insert online pictures and video

Add online videos directly to your documents that readers can watch right in Word. Add your pictures from online photo services without having to save them first to your computer.

Live layout and alignment guides

Get a live preview as you resize and move photos and shapes in your document. The new alignment guides make it easy to line up charts, photos, and diagrams with your text.
