Microsoft Word description

Microsoft Word is a document editing service with collaborative and review mechanisms (adding annotations).

In addition to standard text editing, viewing and formatting, you’ll find a host of features in Word, including internet video insertion, opening and editing PDF files, and aligning photos and diagrams.

What else does Word have to offer?

  • Easy reading. View documents from the screen.
  • Reading Mode. View files in easy-to-read columns, without extra buttons.
  • Object scaling. Double-click on a table, chart or snapshot to open the item in full screen.
  • Resume browsing. When opening a file, it is possible to continue from the last position (and on another PC).
  • Videos from the Internet. You can open the clips directly in Word without taking your eyes off the document.
  • Expanding and collapsing. Accessible with a simple tap and descriptions can be entered in the headers.
  • Collaborative projects. Optimized tools for teamwork.
  • Storage in the cloud. Fast and shared file sharing.
  • Corrections. Word has learned to report all edits in a convenient way.
  • Feedback on the notes. Any note in the margin turns into a discussion, which can be closed after the final decision.
  • Templates as a foundation. A treasure trove of templates for starting a document from scratch.
  • Opening and modifying a PDF. The text editor is able to edit paragraphs, lists and tables, without formatting restrictions.
  • Adding Internet content. You don’t have to save images and videos to your PC to insert them into your documents.
  • Dynamic markups. By changing the size and position of the images, you can preview the result of the work.

Work with documents


Heavily stripped down functionality


  • Familiarity and layout of elements
  • Share a document


  • Strongly cut functionality compared to the desktop version
  • A document created in the desktop version may "float"

Microsoft Word is a program familiar from childhood (literally). I started my own with Word 2003. Today I mainly use the desktop version of 2016 and use almost all the variety of functions that the tool provides (80 percent exactly: styles, complex tables, automatic table of contents, numbering, lists of sources, footnotes, commenting, shared mode edits, insert fields, mailings, etc.). But more and more often it is necessary to solve problems not alone, but together with other participants at the same time. There is, of course, a desktop version with support for multi-user editing, but here the main condition is to find a PC in the same local network, and this is not always possible. And this is where the online version comes to the rescue ...

Microsoft Word Online is greatly reduced in comparison with the desktop version. It contains a minimal set of functions that will be sufficient for most users ... But imagine that you have a file created in the desktop version according to all the rules that Microsoft itself recites and imagine your disappointment when you open it in the online version and you start everything "floats" already when you view it

Microsoft Word Online is also much inferior in functionality to Google Docs.

An excellent editor for working with documents.


Universal program for creating documents. You can easily make a document. Great and intuitive interface.


Small nuances when using the program as a database in an Office package.

An irreplaceable stationary program in the 21st century with no worthy alternatives.

Great editor


Great editing capabilities


A huge number of hot keys for quick editing


Ability to use on mobile. devices


When working with a huge number of pages, lags and issues are possible

You have to constantly work with texts, and this is perhaps the best editor with huge functionality.

Not a bad document editor



Compatible with different formats


Support for output files on different systems and services



Not always convenient when editing large documents

It is not always possible to quickly yqnb the desired function

I have been working with Word for a very long time, I was pleased with the interface change in the 2013 version. The program has quite a lot of functions for changing text, reviewing, formatting, adding non-standard elements for text editors. In addition, the company is now working in the direction of mobile applications, which, of course, is a big plus when working outside the office.
