What is Microsoft Word used for
MS Word is a popular word-processing program used for creating documents such as letters, brochures, learning activities, tests, quizzes and students' homework assignments. There are many powerful features available in Microsoft Word to make it easier to learn for students with disabilities.
New features in Word 2010
Microsoft Word is a word processing software package. You can use it to type letters, reports, and other documents. It helps a lot in spelling-check and words-count.
1. Create visually compelling documents
With Word 2010, you can create compelling documents while applying formatting effects such as shadow, bevel, glow, and reflection to your document text. You can spell-check text that uses visual effects, and add text effects to paragraph styles. Many of the same effects used for images are now available to both text and shapes, enabling you to seamlessly coordinate all of your content.
2. Turn your text into compelling diagrams
Word 2010 offers you more options to add visual impact to your documents. Choose from dozens of additional SmartArt® Graphics to build impressive diagrams just by typing a bulleted list. Use SmartArt to transform basic, bullet-point text into compelling visuals that better illustrate your ideas.
3. Add visual impact to your document
New picture-editing tools in Word 2010 enable you to add special picture effects without additional photo-editing software. You can easily adjust pictures with color saturation and temperature controls. You also get improved tools for easier and more precise cropping and image correction, to help you turn a simple document into a work of art.
But Word is not OK for sharing and exchanging, the formatting will be lost during the sending process; so most people would like to save Word as PDF before sending to others.
Of course, you can also convert PDF back to Word and edit PDF in Word.
