"Líder mundial indiscutible de los Procesadores de Texto."

What do you like best?

Pienso que ésta es la mejor herramienta que existe en el mercado para trabajar con texto. Con el tiempo, la misma ha añadido nuevas y mejores funcionalidades. Me gusta la forma como abro los documentos, escojo plantillas, incorporo texto, cambio estilos, fuentes y colores, incluyo tablas, imágenes; personalizo mis documentos de la forma que desee. Hay muchas plantillas útiles, algunas vienen precargadas en la suite, otras las puedo obtener por Internet, y son ampliamente compatibles y editables. Puedo compartir recursos de otras aplicaciones de la suite, lo que me ayuda muchísimo en la edición de texto. Me fascina su corrector ortográfico, no soy muy bueno en eso, y me ayuda mucho; sobre todo si no es mi lengua nativa: español. Puedo generar archivos en muy distintos formatos. Es eficiente en el uso de los recursos de la máquina, lo que lo hace ser un procesador de texto rápido, aún y cuando tu documento tenga muchas páginas o esté cargado de imágenes. Para las empresas mantiene una buena relación costo-beneficio. En fin, es un software espectacular para edición de texto.

What do you dislike?

Entre una versión y otra, algunas veces cambian las opciones de posición y para el que está acostumbrado, que ya lleva tiempo usando Word, y que usa la memoria, le cuesta algo localizar los componentes, es decir, las herramientas deseadas. Lo que le hace perder algo de usabilidad al producto.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomiendo ampliamente el uso de Microsoft Office a todos los usuarios que deseen trabajar de forma fácil con la edición de textos. La cantidad de funcionalidades que incluye esta aplicación para tratar los textos, configurarlos, editarlos, imprimirlos o generar otros formatos es impresionante. Además, es una aplicación interoperable que fácilmente se comunica con otras aplicaciones de la suite de Office como Excel o Access. No duden en usarlo. Es la herramienta de elección para el manejo de texto por naturaleza.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Soy Licenciado en Informática, con 15 años de experiencia en el desarrollo de software y uso de aplicaciones informáticas. Desde que estudiaba usaba Microsoft Word para la edición de texto en la elaboración de mis trabajos universitarios, actualmente lo empleo en la elaboración de informes de gestión, manuales de usuario, reportes técnicos, entre otros, en la empresa donde laboro. En lo personal también lo he usado para hacer tarjetas de presentación, tarjetas de invitación para las fiestas de mis hijos, para hacer letras para banners, son increíbles la cantidad de tipos de fuentes que maneja, para recortar fotos, entre otros. En definitiva, Word tiene múltiples propósitos.

" The best of all text processing programs"

What do you like best?

Microsoft Word is basically the tool that I use to create all the text documents I need at work. I can do simple things like elaborate from a letter or describe a task or activity to make reports and work with a high level of complexity. Without fear of making mistakes, I can assure you that this word has become an indispensable tool for my work.

Word has a series of elements and components that allow me to determine the structure and define the writing that will have the documents in an effective way, as well as allowing the incorporation of images, effects and tables that allow the information I want to give to be understood in a more quickly and efficiently.

What do you dislike?

One of the big mistakes that Microsoft Word presents is that often when you are working with large documents it is common that the file does not respond, the program hangs and you must close it manually and re-enter the file, running the risk of losing all the work that had advanced in advance, in addition the interface with the latest update has become a bit more complex something that before was no problem since the program was characterized by being easy to use by all types of users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a program that I recommend with closed eyes, it is a program that comes with the support of a huge company like Microsoft and that has many years in the market and I'm sure it will continue to be, maybe there are more economic programs that have similar characteristics but I'm sure none provides the same benefits as Word.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Undoubtedly Microsoft Word is one of the programs that I use most every day in the development of my working day, the program allows me to generate all kinds of text documents such as reports and highly complex works, which I can share through of the internal network or via email with not only co-workers but also customers and suppliers and work, is without a doubt a tool that is present in the day to day of my activities in the office.

What do you dislike?

One of the few things that I criticize in Microsoft Word has a tendency to crash. Likewise, on repeated occasions when I have been working with quite large documents I have noticed that Microsoft Word freezes, hangs and forces manually to close the program and its subsequent reboot, a situation that almost always results in the loss of I was working and although I have my Word account set to automatically save my documents every few minutes, these restarts take away valuable time.

"Microsoft Word, My Rock of the Ages"

What do you like best?

Not to be sacrilegious, but I am a disciple of Word and have been for over twenty years. (It first came out in a Windows version in 1989.)

The governing interface-strip called the ribbon. It is an award-winning feature that serves a traffic cop. The interface is customizable -- here is a cheat sheet I use https://www.techrepublic.com/blog/microsoft-office/10-office-2016-defaults-you-can-change/.

There are some cool features like Smart Draw, Better Help searching, Smart Lookup, Ink Equation, better co-authoring, sharing and versioning, Speech-to-text. Great Research tools without going out of the app;ication. Integration with the cloud and other Office apps with OneDrive.

What do you dislike?

The security had been pretty bad, but I read that Microsoft has made some great strides in that area. The user experience takes some getting used to. I don't like the way Word handled unsaved files, but a least it doesn't delete them without asking you first. COmes as part of Office Suite and I primarily use Windows 10. I am having trouble look for Search and Replace shortcuts or macros to look for 's instead of proper plurals and the Macros don't do it, the ones I have tried so far.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Has excellent CLoud product. Get the Office suite -- I pay (.99 per month

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been using Word lately to edit a 1600-page manuscript and have not had to use other software to edit and make changes to the manuscript. Everything is here!

"Word, the most reliable."

What do you like best?

Having been raised to operate using Microsoft Word, I'm incredibly comfortable with this product. I know how to use it's inner tools to make the best product I could possibly put forth. It can be used for it's most simple features, or used to create more elaborate products, lists, notes, and designs. Most recently, I began to use word to make labels! Love that.

I dislike how templates can often be difficult or non-intuitive. Sometimes there's just no way to work within a template to make the bones of what you're using to cooperate. With this said, i have very little to complain about this product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you've been using Word for your life as I have, you'll know how many wonderful things it can do with ease. However, I recommend that you always google a way to do what you've been doing, as there's likely an easier and better way to do it!

"Documents of all kinds, anywhere, as robust as you need them to be"

What do you like best?

Microsoft Word has decades of experience on the market as one of the finest word processors there are and easily the market leader for most of its lifespan.

Word allows for documents of all types as simple as basic note taking to the most robust and heavily formatted reports.

From your kid's letter to your company's advanced briefing full of tables, hyperlinks, graphics and media.

Microsoft Word allows for nearly limitless formatting letting you design the exact document you want and need; it allows exporting to other popular file types just as PDF and is available pretty much anywhere now from computers to smart devices, tablets and the like

What do you dislike?

Expensive, for as very few changes it receives with each iteration you'd expect the price would be lower but it is still a premium package.

Security concerns have been an issue in the past

It is a massive and unnecesary resource hog

Recommendations to others considering the product

Beware the resources it needs to operate, consider disable auto start options.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Microsoft Word is the go to word processor we have used on every company I've ever worked for each and every document we had to create.

"Easy to use word processor"

What do you like best?

The thing that I like best about Microsoft Word is how easy it is to use. Usually, it takes time for us to train our employees on how to use programs and systems that we use on a regular basic at work. However, because Microsoft Word is both so widely used and easy to navigate, it almost never requires us to train employees on how to use and get the most out of the program. Also, because Microsoft Word is built like the other Microsoft products - Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, etc.) our users become familiar with one program and they are able to navigate them all. This is a hugely convenient thing to our company. I also like how Microsoft Word is compatible with the other Microsoft programs. So, I am able to easy import an Excel chart that I have created into a Word document or a PowerPoint presentation. Microsoft Words ease of use and compatibility make it a great program for my company.

What do you dislike?

I have experienced that Microsoft Word has a tendency to crash. There have been numerous times when I have been working on large documents and Microsoft Word freezes and either crashes or forces you to manually force the program closed and restart it. This almost always causes me to lose some of my work. Even though I have my Word account set-up to automatically save my documents every few minutes, the crashes still set me back and are an inconvenience and waste of time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend Microsoft Word to any company that creates any type of documents. Microsoft Word is user friendly and easy to navigate. Microsoft Word allows you to customize its toolbars and setting to suite your individual needs. It is also compatible with the other Microsoft Office Suite products, making it easy to integrate documents, charts, graphs and presentations (among others).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Microsoft Word allows us to securely share documents that contain sensitive information since the program allows you to secure documents with a password. Microsoft Word also allows you to assign permissions to documents. So, I can allow people only to have access to view a document or I can grant them full editing permissions. This feature has been good for my company because we deal and pass around so many secure documents. Most of the documents require a password to be shared over email. So, Microsoft Word has helped us adhere to our security standards.

"The most popular in the area"

What do you like best?

Popularity, i have to say it, the first thing that comes to my mind when i hear "text processing" is Word. Since i was a child im using Word and is the default choice of everyone. Because of that everytime im creating/editing a document i have the confidence that wherever i go i can find a Cyber Cafe, plug my pendrive and keep working. If i'm creating/editing a document for a client/familiar/friend i know that they are using Word too, so i can use the full potential of Word.

What do you dislike?

Lack of compatibility with other text editors. I struggle every time i have to migrate my documents from Word to another text editor. I feel like everything crash, all the margins and lines misconfigured, some images misplaced, etc. Sometimes i have to stay an hour just reconfiguring all again.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need a text editor that have a wide acceptance in the market, Word is what you looking for.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I need a standardized text editor because i wanted to do the editing/creating job just one time and not do it twice because of incompatibility issues between text editors. I found a solution with Word.

"I use microsoft word for everything"

What do you like best?

Microsoft word is so versatile and is my only and definitely my go to word processing software. I have also recently discovered that it can be used to design surveys. The program comes with preloaded templates and you just modify them according to your preferences.

What do you dislike?

I have been using Word for a long time, but every few years it gets updated to a different version. I tend to dislike the updates because things move around, and it becomes more difficult to find the most common functions that I am used to. Also, the automatic formatting can sometimes get on my nerves. I may not be familiar with all of the functions available in word.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would suggest that Microsoft word is probably a necessity for anybody who does any amount of writing. This is a standard software for word processing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use microsoft word to take notes, document processes, write papers, prepare surveys. It is a great way to stay on track and speaking of tracks, track changes are very helpful when working with coauthors on paper revisions. One benefit of having an easily accessible document system is it allows me to email word documents to myself, which I can then view on other computers or even on the Internet through my email.

"Best word processor in the market"

What do you like best?

For my opinion and experience for many years, Word allows me to create, edit and share your work easily and quickly. Anyone can open and work with a document in Word. After all, it is the most popular word processor in the world.

With the templates you can create more professional looking styles, besides saving time. Explore more than 40 categories of Word templates.

With Word, you can converse, collaborate and create shared documents in real time with your work group. As members of your workgroup make changes and edit a document, the enhanced version of Word 2016's history allows you to view and revert to previous drafts.

What do you dislike?

Disadvantages are very few but what I can say word is a security flaw present in all versions of it, at present this flaw seems to be solved, but in the same way you should be careful with updates, because sometimes they are uninstalled files of interest to the user.

Recommendations to others considering the product

My first recommendations for business or companies would be that this word processor is the most complete and the most compatible with your .doc files can be used anywhere in the world and operating system both windows and MAC or Linux, this text processor that provides a variety of options to make reports, important documents of the company with an appropriate and elegant format. On the other hand it is a tool that we can use both in the home and company.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It supports a number of formats, graphics, styles, tabulations, tables, etc. What makes it extremely flexible.

It allows the effective handling of documents with formats for any business in the world and the greatest compatibility that exists in the world.

"Great Program for Professional Documents"

What do you like best?

The thing that I have found to like the most about Microsoft Word is its compatibility with other Microsoft programs. For example, it is easy to insert a Microsoft Word document into an Excel Spreadsheet or PowerPoint Presentation. Another feature that I fiind really convenient about Microsoft Word is that you can export documents to PDF format, making them accessible by anyone - even those people who don't have Microsoft Word. I also like the security of Microsoft Word. You can add a password to a document and assign permissions. For example, you can make it so another user can have view only permissions or give them full permission to make edits. This comes in handy when dealing with documents that contain sensitive information.

What do you dislike?

I dislike how frequent Microsoft Word tends to crash! This is extremely frustrating. I have it set up so that my documents automatically save themselves every 15 minutes. However, when the program crashes, if it hasn't saved recently, I have to redo some of my work. This has taken up a lot of time. Microsoft Word also takes a long time to come back up when it crashes, adding to the frustration.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend Microsoft Word to anyone because it is easy enough to use with its basic features but has advanced features for those users who are more experienced with the product - it is a great program for users at all levels. Since it has the same basic set-up as the other Microsoft Programs (example: PowerPoint and Excel), if you know how to use one, you are easily able to navigate the other programs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Microsoft Word is the program that my company chooses for document processing. This is because it is fast, reliable and offers a huge variety of features that allow you to create professional documents. The fact that Microsoft Word can be synced with One Note so that your documents can be accessed from anywhere via the internet, has proven to be a great benefit to my company. We can create a document using Microsoft Word, save it to the internet using our One Note account and have access to that document from any location that we are working. We can even make edits online via One Note. Before this, we would have to save documents and email them to ourselves in order to access them from a remote location and if we didn't have Microsoft Word from that remote location, we weren't even able to view the document. Since Microsoft Word has become compatible with One Note, even if we don't have Microsoft Word, we have full access to Word documents from the web. This feature saves us a lot of time and is very convenient.

"Is there anything better?"

What do you like best?

It's very simple interface is great for any document you need to put together, but you can also get a lot more complex with it. Additionally, the ability to review and comment on other people's working using the "track changes" function is one of my favorite functions in Microsoft Word. It is an extremely powerful and complete word processing software.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the formatting automatically will change or not work as you expect and it is occasionally very difficult to figure out how to get it to work properly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If purchased with the whole Microsoft Office package, this suite of programs offers a lot of flexibility, transferability and the ability to share files and work on documents at the same time as others. Microsoft Office continues to improve year after year to in terms of user-friendliness, although as mentioned earlier, it can be tough to figure out some of the formatting items. If you are going to use it primarily in its simplest form, I would recommend it 100%. If you are using it to do in-depth work and complex reports, it is still very helpful and easy to use, although formatting can be a pain.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I had a need to convey the information I had collected on a field visit and required a method of organizing it and issuing it to the client. Microsoft word allowed me to write neat and organized reports with simplicity so I could convey the condition of structures to the client.

"Good Word Processor"

What do you like best?

There are several things that I like the most about Microsoft Word - several reasons why I choose to use this software. First of all, I like the fact that Microsoft Word is set up just like all of the other Microsoft Office products because once you know the features of and how to use and navigate one product in the Microsoft Office Suite, you are able to use all of the Microsoft products. This makes using and getting the most out of Microsoft Word's features easy to do. I also like the fact that Microsoft Word is so compatible with the other Microsoft products because it makes it easy to work with them collectively. I need to be able to insert charts and graphs in to my documents so, Microsoft Word makes it easy for me to create graphs and tables in Excel and transfer them to my Microsoft Word document.

What do you dislike?

There are only a couple of small things that I have found to dislike about Microsoft Word. One thing that I do dislike is how long it takes to save things to the Microsoft cloud. Some times, when trying to save a document to the cloud, Microsoft Word freezes all together and I end up losing a lot of the work that I have done to the document. I also dislike that when saving a document from Microsoft Word, it automatically reverts and saves it to the cloud. This can be frustrating, especially when I meant to save it to my computer. There have been several times when I thought I saved a document to my computer only not to be able to locate it later because Microsoft Word reverted and saved it to my cloud.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend Microsoft Word to any one who is familiar with the Microsoft products. Since all Microsoft products have almost the same lay out, once you know how to use one, it is easy to get the most out of all Microsoft products. Microsoft Word is a good program and even better is its compatibility with other Microsoft products. So, if you create a chart, graph or table in Excel, Microsoft Word makes it easy to transfer it to you Microsoft Word document. I definitely recommend Microsoft Word.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Microsoft Word is good because it allows you to sign in to your Microsoft Office account from any computer or device that you are using it from. This means that you have access to your files, documents and preferences no matter where you are using Microsoft Word from. This is important for my company because we are always traveling and using different computers and devices to work. If we didn't have a way to log in to our Microsoft Word account, we would have to rely on saving our documents to a disk or emailing them to ourselves in order to have access to them on the go. Microsoft Word's compatibility mode has also been a benefit to my company. Since people use different versions of Microsoft Word depending on when they made their last update to the program, not all documents appear the same. If you are using two different versions of Microsoft Word, depending on what version it is, some documents may not even open right at all. Microsoft Word's compatibility mode checks documents in order to ensure that your document will appear the way you created in no matter what version of Microsoft Word the end user is using to view the document.

"In need of text processing program, Microsoft Word is the best solution."

What do you like best?

Microsoft Word is a text editor that allows the user to type, edit and share documents. The best thing is that it is inexpensive and very easy to use even for beginners.

Other features that really help the user are the spelling and grammar check usability.

One can also easily incorporate tables, images, clip arts and effects that make it visually attractive.

One can also add a software known as Grammarly that is very crucial for editors and ensures error free documents.

In case of abrupt power outage, one can return to the work after starting up the computer.

There is a version for both windows and android users.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes one can lose work if the computers goes off without having previously saved the work.

Resizing images into the content can sometime be very hectic.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A very simple to use text editor for all users.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Microsoft Word allows one to type and send several types of documents such as letters, Memos, reports and after that one can share them with colleagues through emails.

The proofreading tools also ensure that one gets to send error free documents a concept that makes one look very professional.

In addition to this, Microsoft helped me in my school project due to the tracking changes feature that allow the one to see corrections made in a certain document and therefore correct them depending on the end notes. The references also allow one to cite authors and books/ scholarly materials used for research paper.

"Microsoft Word is all I use for desktop publishing!"

What do you like best?

Word has a huge amount of options available to suit the needs of most home as well as business users.

What do you dislike?

I have found the latest version to be a challenge to utilize, as so many of the toolbars and toolbar options were changed around and are sometimes hard to find.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're new to MS Word, just take your time learning how to use it. You might consider taking a course at your local community center. For returning and new users, there are plenty of youtube videos you can review, to help you through most issues. If all else fails, contact Microsoft support, as they are usually pretty helpful!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used Word to prepare business proposals, pleadings to present at court, lists for every day use...you name it, if you need desktop publishing, MS Word can do it for you.

"The Word Processing Software"

What do you like best?

Simple formatting. It's so easy to make changes to documents I've created. Word also supports charts from Excel, images, and anything else I've needed to insert to make a visually attractive report. The built in templates are pretty good, and the tools to add things like columns, charts, etc are surprisingly easy to use for a word processor. This has been seriously improved in recent versions of Word. Track changes is my lifesaver when negotiating an agreement. The ability to comment on comments and mark resolved is a new feature, but one I've already utilized a number of times, and I love it. There are so many old documents saved in .doc format that Word can still open, which is a lifesaver on 20+ year old agreements. Opening the old document is so much easier than trying to export an old scanned pdf.

What do you dislike?

It's time consuming to remove old tab sets one-by-one, but I haven't found a better way. Spell check and grammar check are ok, but sometimes forget things I've added to the dictionary, and fight with me over acceptable grammar. The new brown squiggles that I think are meant to help with conciseness are ok, but annoying when contract drafting, because contracts are anything but concise at my employer. I'd like it if only the person who turns on track changes could turn it off, so that the original drafter can see all changes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Start slow, and definitely poke around the menus and tabs. You'll find all kinds of ways to customize your documents. There are a slew of additional templates online for anything you'd need.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it for all of my word processing, from report writing to contract drafting to RFP document generation to label making to resumes.

"Microsoft Word is great for everyday documents "

What do you like best?

It's great for everyday documents and templates. It's great for simple reports, newsletters, certificates, lengthy reports and adding bookmarks and footnotes. It's easy to use and cost effective. Headers, footers and all tools are easy to navigate and everything is pretty familiar.

What do you dislike?

It's somewhat difficult to set the margins and page bookmarks at times. It's really annoying to set the pages on a document. You attempt to set the first page differently or odd even pages different and doesn't always work. Also, I do not like the page borders, they are basic and boring. There needs to be better and updated page borders and nice designs that you don't need to download from the Microsoft website. Also, the certificate templates the website offers for free are not that great. Also, depending what version of Word staff and others have, sometimes documents are unable to open.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Watch free YouTube and Microsoft tutorials and download free Microsoft certificates, templates, etc that are available.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am able to create basic reports, templates, add bookmarks, easily edit documents and view others edits and comments. You are able to turn documents easily into a pdf which is super convenient for our Board and Committee reports.

"Microsoft Word is a fantastic word processor with great functionality."

What do you like best?

I would say the best thing about MS Word is its ability to make even the most unprofessional of people appear professional in their communication or presentation.

Its referencing utility is so convenient and hassle free (which is amazingly useful for my university dissertations and business uses alike) and the fact that it will generate a bibliography for you is absolutely outstanding. This may seem like a strangely specific point to include, but believe me, the pain and hassle the bibliography generating feature has saved me is insane.

The newly improved graphing feature is also a god send, as in the past it was better to go to excel to create a graph and then port it to Word; now Word incorporates some of Excels software (not sure how it works, forgive the lack of tech Jargon) to make Word have just as good a graphing utility as excel does.

Little things like that also show that the developers are constantly looking for ways to improve their products; even if it just means borrowing from one of its brothers.

What do you dislike?

It can't be purchased standalone and comes as a package with the other MS toolkits. Many people use only word and thus can't justify buying the whole package, so whilst for me this isn't an issue (I use them all) I imagine this to be a turn off for some.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look no further, this is the best.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has made word processing and report generating a professional looking breeze.

"Track those changes!"

What do you like best?

I do a lot of technical writing for work and the biggest functionality I work with when using Word, is the Track Changes and add comments. I love being able to see the collaboration between myself and the developers. I know they all have word so it's the easiest product to use when I need feedback or changes from a colleague. Being able to see the time, date, and the name of who made changes to my word doc, is great. It makes it easier to go back to that person with more questions if I have any.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing I dislike about using this software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I create documentation, tutorials, and status reports. I use Microsoft Word when I know that the person in the other end does not have any other specific documentation management software. Word is great because it's easy to use and I can create templates for new technical writers. I'm able to give new colleagues, a template of what our documentation style workflow looks like and all they have to do is fill in the blanks.

"Great Word Processing Software"

What do you like best?

Microsoft Word has been my choice for creating documents since as far back as I can remember. What I like best about Microsoft Word is that it continually makes advances to its features in order to keep up with the latest trends and needs. New features are regularly added to Microsoft Word, as well as enhanced compatibility with other programs and applications. I also like that Microsoft Word allows you to export a document to a number of different file formats - from exporting to a PDF document, to numerous picture files, you can export your document as necessary. I also like the versatility and features that Microsoft Word has when it comes to working with images within a document. From removing the background from an image to working with an images color scheme, Microsoft Word gives you many image formatting option which often comes in handy when creating a document.

What do you dislike?

There aren't many things that I dislike about Microsoft Word. I do always find myself thinking that the eyedropper color tool would come in handy as a feature in Microsoft Word. The eyedropper allows you to pick a color that is anywhere in a document and duplicate it without know the exact color codes. This would be extremely valuable when creating certain types of documents where the exact colors you are using are important. I also dislike Microsoft Word's tendency to freeze out of nowhere and have to be restarted or automatically restarts in the middle of working with a document. This happens too often and can be quite a setback when it does occur.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Microsoft Word allows us to know use one program to do the work of what would have taken several programs to create. Microsoft Word allows us not only to work with and edit word documents but also with images within those documents - something that we would have previously had to use a separate program to do. Since Microsoft Word has so many image editing/enhancing features and options, it is a huge time saver and allows for versatile and quality documents.

"Microsoft Word: It's the standard for a reason"

What do you like best?

I've used a lot of different word processing software, and MS Word just does more, better. It's never been that user friendly, but it has such an enormous capacity to do all sorts of things, I think spending the time to really learn to use it is worth it.

What do you dislike?

MS Word is hard to use. It has a million hidden tricks that you only know if somebody teaches you. It can also be a terrible pain to try to import and export to/from.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend that anybody who is going to have to do much word processing for their job go ahead and take a MS Word class and get really familiar with the software and what it can do. When you're comfortable with it, MS Word isn't hard to use and can be a very important tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use MS Word for all of our document creation, from internal stuff to customer facing documents. Most things end up being PDFs, but they start in Word.

"The Original and Versatile Document Software"

What do you like best?

Microsoft Word allows individuals to build documents for all types of platforms. Whether typing a business proposal, creating handouts, or organizing agenda items, Microsoft is the easiest technology to use. One of the best features is the ability to customize and create a product or essay exactly to the standards required. Everything can be modified or changed, whether it be font size, alignment of text, line spacing, or margin width, Microsoft Word fits anyone's needs.

What do you dislike?

Templates are often sorely outdated and it can be much easier to start from scratch than try to modify on that is already made. To make documents rich in visual effects and fonts can be difficult as Microsoft Word is not designed to be a graphic design program and its functions are more limited. Expect to be somewhat frustrated if you attempt to use it for this type of feature in terms or editing and modifying text and pictures to look like a well-designed poster or marketing materials.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make use of the comment features included in Microsoft Word. This is an incredibly useful feedback tool that is used in the professional world. This feature allows a colleague to highlight portions of the document and offer changes or suggestions to improve the content or organization and flow of the piece. This eliminates having to send back a document with changes trying to find what changes were made or having to provide comments separate from the document and try to figure as to what part of the content they are referring to. This feature simplifies the process and allows for efficient and quick editing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are effectively able to launch events and business meetings through creations from Microsoft Word that are easy to understand and follow, as well as are organized and visually appealing. Microsoft

Without a doubt, MS Word is the best document processor today. As a specialist in the IT area and a professor of higher education in the area of ​​computer science, the sending of professional and efficient documents is the order of the day. MS Word, allows me to make all communications in a competitive format and with a high professional level. The tools for editing format and editing images are the tools that I like the most. Also, the integration that allows the application with tools in the cloud to edit documents in real time are totally competitive and efficient. Another characteristic that I like is the possibility of executing electronic calculation sheets such as MS Excel, from the editing of my documents. Not only allows me to edit formats but also allows you to interact with other applications of the MS Office family

Actually, there are very few MS Word things that I do not like. However, I believe that the integration of file editors in PDF format should be improved in order to centralize the editing of my documents.

"Microsoft Word is better than ever!"

What do you like best?

I have loved Microsoft Word for years. But our firm used to be on the WordPerfect platform. However, in recent years, we have learned that Microsoft Word is more in line with our client's needs. We are in the process of switching over all remaining systems to Microsoft Word as it is easier to use, more efficient, has better updates, and is much more functional.

What do you dislike?

Cost has increased a bit for the Microsoft Office Suite package -- which makes it more costly to license our office, but the improvements are vast.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Clients seem much more comfortable using and accessing drafts in Microsoft Word format (or in PDF which I can use in Microsoft's conversion option). Word is also easier for many of our staff to learn and use as it is more intuitive and user friendly than WordPerfect seems to be.

What do you like best?

Microsoft Word is the best program for the elaboration of works and projects.

It has a variety of very useful tools such as: Many types of letters, color palette, you can insert images and edit them, save documents in other text formats.

What do you dislike?

I have been working with Microsoft Word for about 15 years, since I was a student, one of the faults that the program has is that sometimes the work in a large document is pasted to the program and it has to be closed due to obligation, this caused many times the work already realized to be lost and had to start again.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend using Microsoft Word closed eyes because it has a high range of tools very useful for all kinds of work whether school or office. Word adapts to all our needs and is very easy to use, and each tool plays an important role. That is why I recommend that each user perform a Microsoft Word course to learn how to use all functions such as text fonts, page background, footer, page format, tables, graphics, images, automatic spelling revision, insertion of equations and symbols.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Microsoft Word I have been able to do all my work since I was in school, then in college and now in my work every day I use it and I recommend it to everyone for its ease of use and elegance in all its tools

"An outstandingly diverse and capable program, but lacks some major updates to modern design"

What do you like best?

The robust styles that can be implemented into various page designs and layouts, which allows for expanded creativity. The expanded file & cloud sharing capabilities allow for streamlined deployment of work to multiple platforms. Support for third-party plugins, additional font and community designs is a major upgrade from previous editions.

What do you dislike?

Word could use better cross-compatibility with other file types, especially across other word processing platforms, office suites, and operating systems. OSX & web-based support is slower than the native Windows environment, which hinders abilities in work situations requiring more than one OS. Printing requires greater adjustment than should be normal, as the GUI interface doesn't necessarily reflect the actual printed output. Control of page layout margins are less than ideal, especially with unlabeled sidebars that cannot be changed through the application's visual layout.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Keep the software package updated via the MS Office auto-update ability. MS is always pushing updates to the suite, while improving functionality and security. Use custom layout options, both in Word and in Windows to customize the application's look & feel to suite your tastes and workflow. Utilize the mobile app to streamline work on the go, while also syncing up documents to a MS OneDrive account or other cloud service to allow for more dynamic workflow.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Large scale inventory tracking, new product presentation, and dynamic marketing design. Benefits include seamless implantation across all MS Office products, and other Windows applications. New community designs and layouts allow for greater flexibility for marketing and presentation.

"Microsoft Word"

What do you like best?

It is very user friendly. It is great to use for letter writing, reports, lesson plans, and etc. I love the different tabs on the top of the screen to choose from. I like that you can insert pictures, draw pictures, insert graphs, and other items on the word document. I like to change the font size, color, and style. I like that you can add comments to a paper by using the review tab and clicking on "new comment". This tool is great for teachers to use when they are reviewing or grading students' papers. This was a great tool to use when I was writing papers during college.

What do you dislike?

At the moment there is nothing that I dislike about microsoft word because it is so easy to use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Microsoft Word is very user friendly. I enjoy using it when I need to type a paper, letter, or create a test for my students. The different tabs are easy to use. It's easy to add in pictures or other things if needed. I like to use the undo arrow button if I make a mistake. I have used Microsoft word a long time especially during my college years and have very minimal problems with it. I like to use the review button to check my spelling and grammar.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is great to use if I need to type a word document and to save on my computer. Previously I used Microsoft word to type my lesson plans and save them easily on my computer.

"The best and only word processor you need"

What do you like best?

Microsoft word has been the leader in word processing for as long as I have been using a computer. It has a great dictionary for spell check and it is very easy to add new words. The grammar detection is also getting better each version.

What do you dislike?

There are times that spell check does not know what word I am trying to spell. I will copy and paste it directly into google and it will know right away the correct spelling. They also subtly alter where certain commands are in the tool bar between versions and finding them again can be annoying.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If possible buy a version of MS word not is not Office 365. Paying yearly for word is unneeded since each version, very little is added and will work for almost all of your needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

MS word allows me to write my protocols, papers, notes, and everything else in an easy to use application. The files are then small enough to email around to other people who need to read what was written and edit it themselves. With track changes, manuscripts can be edited my multiple people easily.

"The most feature-rich Office application out there"

What do you like best?

The numerous features: styles and formatting, page formatting, text formatting (columns), fine-grained customization (which Google Docs lacks), and ability to export documents into numerous other formats, like PDFs.

What do you dislike?

The tracking of sections in a document is a bit unintuitive, hard to track/manage figures like you can with LaTeX.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you can afford a basic Microsoft Office subscription and find yourself needing a professional, feature-rich office suite (PowerPoint, Excel, Word), deciding to get Microsoft Word is a no-brainer. The free alternatives just can't compare.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Microsoft Word's strengths are ease of use, support for wide range of documents and templates, and the fact that it's an offline application (for sensitive internal documents). Almost everyone knows how to use Word when they enter the workforce so it is the de-facto standard for word processors, even though its capabilities still far surpass those of its competition.

I don't have any complaints at this time

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have all my notes and important work documents saved to word for easy access if I need to get to something really quick I'm not looking all over the place I know exactly where it is.

"So classic. So much better."

What do you like best?

I love this program. Where to start? Everything is pretty easy. I love the ease of cutting, pasting, and copying. I love the ease of editing. The new and improved Spell Check is super easy to use, margins can be adjusted to any size you need, fonts can look like anything you want them to and in any size. Adding pictures, images, or illustrations is a snap. Changing margin size, spacing, text size, font style, or even document type is a breeze. Cutting, copying, and pasting couldn't be simpler. Very intuitive and super easy to learn. Great for documents, labels, and so much more. A must have for any business or home.

What do you dislike?

The latest version of Word automatically chooses a font style, double spacing, and font size. If you don't like the way it looks or something, after you change it don't hit delete too many times or try to jump around the page too much or it will go back to the default settings and you will have to fix it again. It can also 'forget' you set different font styles or text sizes if you hit return too many times. Also, Spell/Grammar Check is not always correct. Sometimes it takes a dot (.) as a period and tries to auto-correct by capitalizing the next word. It also does not recognize all words and will argue with you in spite of the word actually being in the dictionary.

Recommendations to others considering the product

So easy to use. Start slow and before you know it you will be cranking out anything you need in no time flat. Remember that anything can be fixed in your document and your imagination is the only thing holding you back from a beautiful finished product. Great for kids and adults.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This program is great because we can create invoices, contracts, waivers, and any other document I may need. It is also good for creating labels for mailing or storage.

"In Depth Document Creation Comes With Challenges"

What do you like best?

Word is very powerful, and you can pretty much generate documents exactly how you imagine them. With the whole MS office package, integrating Excel or other MS products into the Word documents is also very easy.

What do you dislike?

Due to it's flexibility, it can become quite frustrating to format everything to due what you want it to do. Additionally, once successfully formatted, there is no guarantee that you will be able to repeat the same type of formatting later, or copy and paste it. Different versions of Word will format differently, so compatibility between old files and new programs can sometimes be an issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When opening older files through the new MS Word versions you can 'ugrade' the compatibility of the old file within the file menu. This will convert the file to the new format, which may prevent readability issues on the file. However, the reformatting may mean some of the old formatting within the file may change, so the files should be proof-read after upgrading.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to generate detailed proposals with graphics, tables, images, etc., within Word, giving us a professional looking product for our customers. By generating templates within Word we are able to reduce our workload significantly. Integration of MS Excel tables into the Word documents is helpful to show complex tables to customers within the proposal format.

"Favorite Word Processor "

What do you like best?

What I like best about Microsoft Word is the fact that the Mac and PC versions are basically the same. At my last job, we had a company computer which was a PC. I recently got a mac and am still using Microsoft word a lot. At first I thought I thought the interface would be different, but I'm glad it is roughly the same.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the track editing changes don't work very well for me. The application has trouble switching between reading mode and editing mode. Also when I try to open somebody else's edits, it only allows me to read, vs. adding another layer of edits with another color.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are switching from something else, take some time to learn all the buttons before fully starting a word doc. It will help a lot in the future.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am always typing up documents to clients. Besides that, it is great that Word has the editing function we can use for our interns. It is always nice to show the edits vs. correcting it directly it on the page and saving over it.

"Best Document Tool"

What do you like best?

There are a lot of things I like about Microsoft Word, but what I do appreciate is the grammar spelling check. It is nice to know that when you are typing a super long document that will be PDF and sent to everybody on the team, you can double check your mistakes by simply looking for the red squiggly line.

What do you dislike?

I remember when the Microsoft Office Suite was just a flat pay out, but now they have it so that you are paying a monthly subscription. This might be beneficial to some people, but I only own 1 laptop and wouldn't mind just going back to the old days where you buy key cards.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a simple program that is used to type of documents, Microsoft Word is the one! I don't even know what other alternative you would want to use since Word is so universal.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am constantly typing up documents and making proposals with Microsoft Word. The grammar and spelling check keeps me confident in sending out documents in absolute certainty that nothing is spelled wrong. Other benefits I have realized is that everybody uses Word, so there isn't a conflict in opening the files.

"MS Word is a Great Online or Offline Document Creator"

What do you like best?

I love the functionality and versatility of Microsoft Word. It allows for documents to be created either online or offline; it provides templates; allows for changes and revisions to be tracked; and overall is a reliable word processing software. It makes revision tasks easy with its track changes interface, with multiple options to view changes. When the revisions are complete, the end user can accept all changes, reject all changes, or go through line-by-line. It's a great way to edit documents, even in a collaborative setting.

What do you dislike?

The equation editor is a bit tedious to use, especially if you do not yet have commonly used equations stored; however, this is a problem that will affect a very small subset of users. I wish MS Word would auto-save at regular intervals even offline, but perhaps that's something that the team will integrate in the future. Lastly, image insertion can be rather tricky to get right; the formatting is usually messed up immediately afterwards, and I'd say that it's not the most intuitive process.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Microsoft Word is my go-to word processing software. With its offline and online functionality, it provides me with the flexibility I need to accomplish a myriad of tasks. From the classroom to the lab, for assignments, applications, reports, calendars, or memos, MS Word is the perfect tool for document creation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use Microsoft Word for a variety of research-based and academic tasks. Everything from laboratory reports, academic papers, and review articles to assignments and summary statements - all handled seamlessly by MS Word!

"Microsoft Word-The Easiest writing program for anyone to use"

What do you like best?

Microsoft Word is a program that you start learning at an early age in school but they dont really get into the short cuts and fun parts of the program. There are SOOOO many really great features in the program that you could use. Like Pie charts and short cuts and ways to really fine tune using it to make creating documents go faster. I like everything that is embedded into Microsoft to really make a basic document look like you spent hours making it look top notch, but really you spent a 1/3 of the time.

What do you dislike?

I dont dislike a single thing about Microsoft word. The only thing that makes it a little hard is when the program gets updated and things move around a little bit and it is a little bit of a learning curve. That happens with every single product on the market though.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think as long as you can type, Microsoft word is the right program for you. It is easy to use and easy to put great pieces of writting together in one place. It is simple, you can place text boxes, images, and pie charts in the same place and more. Use this program! Also..Dont use a mac based program as many people cannot open it on their computer unless they also have a mac.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Word for anything from Job Announcements to Thank you letters to congratulations announcements. I use it often for training documents as well as it is often the most common form on every computer. .
