Word has become the standard for creating and formatting documents of all types from simple letters to documents with a table of contents, index and glossary. Word has made the task of creating and editing documents easy. Tools like spell check and thesaurus have made us look smart and polished. Thankfully, long gone are the days of typewriters, carbon paper and correction fluid.
Word 2010 has bold new features to enhance your document-formatting. It also bundles mobile features so you can take your documents with you almost-anywhere. With just a little practice, you can impress everyone with content-rich, visually compelling, professional documents for home, school or work.
Add flair to your documents and get noticed!
Transform with photos – New and improved photo-editing tools let you transform pictures right in Word 2010. You don’t have to edit your photo in another program and then insert into Work. Change color saturation, brightness, and contrast to make more appealing images. Add borders, shadowing and effects to turn a simple Word document into a work of art.
Turn text into visual effects – Add more visual impact with enhanced text effects and SmartArt graphics. Make bullet-points using images or your company logo. Add text effects like shadow, glow, reflection, and 3-D. It is easy and only takes a few clicks. From Font, choose Text Effects and make your choice.
Work with anyone – anywhere, anytime
Easily co-author documents – Word 2010 redefines the way people can work together on one document. With co-authoring, you can edit at the same time as others, even if you’re working from different locations, and keep versions in sync with version control.
Access your information from more places – Microsoft Word Web App is an online companion to Microsoft Word. It is browser-based so you just need an Internet connection and your computer. It has the same look-and-feel as Word 2010 with some of the same formatting and editing tools.
