Writing is one of the most dynamic and wonderful methods of expression we have access to as a part of the human race. After all, who doesn’t love a good book on a sunny day?
With classical literature aside though for a second, writing is so much more than just books, in fact, in a way, writing is pretty much everything.
Whether you’re a student, teacher, or have a simple desk job, writing (or typing in this case) is probably a large chunk of what you do, and we rarely get a chance to salute the software which helped us learn how to write so well, and so stylistically.

What is the program known as Microsoft Word?
In essence, Microsoft Word is a writing tool. It allows you to put your thoughts into words, and then do multiple things with these words. It is comparable to the Pages app which is available on Mac OS devices.
Generally speaking though, a Word file can easily be viewed simply as a blank sheet of paper, on which you can write whatever you want, and display this writing in whichever way you see fit.
Ms-Word comes with many tools to streamline your writing, which is the advantage it provides over traditional pen and paper methods. You could easily have two completely independent word files, which look completely different in nature to one another, to the point where they might seem like they were made on different software.
How does Microsoft Word function?
When you open up a Microsoft Word file for the very first time, you are greeted with a blank, A4 sized sheet, in either a landscape or portrait orientation, which is yours to use as you please. You can input content onto this sheet by simply typing on the keyboard, but this is fairly basic stuff.
The real fun comes when you explore the toolbars on the top of the window, which allow you to do so many additional functions, such as adding pictures, tables, messing with types, colors, borders, spacing, and so much more, truly a writers dream, and a blessing in disguise.
Where and how to acquire Microsoft Word?
Essentially, Microsoft Word can be acquired in a variety of ways. First of all, it can be paid for and downloaded as an individual product straight from Microsoft’s Website. Alternatively, you can purchase a product key of Office from any tech retailer near you, and simply follow the steps in order to install the software on your system.
However, the most convenient, and most highly recommended way to install Word onto your system is simply to opt for an Office 365 subscription.
This essentially gives you a yearly pass and access to all of the basic Microsoft Office functions through your system, we really would recommend this method to everyone who needs even two or three of this software as it really streamlines the process of acquiring them.
