Microsoft Word is a widely used commercial word processor designed by Microsoft.

Microsoft Word is a component of the Microsoft Office suite of productivity software,
but can also be purchased as a stand-alone product. Word documents come in
many varieties, depending on the purpose of the document itself. They almost
always contain text, but they can also contain pictures, charts and tables, hyperlinks,
word art, equations and online videos.

Word documents are used for both printed and digital presentations, publications,
reports and other projects. For example, using just plain text, you can create a
manuscript for a book or create a screenplay. By adding pictures and charts and
playing with the fonts, you can create a dynamic report or article for professional or
educational purposes. A word processor is essentially a computerized version of the
standard typewriter. However, the computer adds features typewriters never
dreamed of having like spell check, the ability to save and store documents, copy
and past functions, the ability to add images and shapes to documents, and many
more. When attached to an email, electronic documents, created by MS Word can
be delivered in seconds. Another benefit is that it helps the user to type faster and
more accurate. This software is used to create, edit, and format written documents in
the workplace, at school, and at home. Examples include personal and formal
business letters, resumes, coversheets, and homework.

Microsoft Word offers several features to ease document creation and editing,

 WYSIWYG (what-you-see-is-what-you-get) display: It ensures that everything

displayed on screen appears the same way when printed or moved to another
format or program.
 Spell check: Word features a built-in dictionary for spell checking; misspelled
words are marked with a red squiggly underline. Sometimes, Word auto-
corrects an obviously misspelled word or phrase.
 Text-level features such as bold, underline, italic and strike-through
 Page-level features such as indentation, paragraphing and justification
 External support: Word is compatible with many other programs, the most
common being the other members of the Office suite.
