Interface Overview

 

Create something

Begin with a Blank document to get right to work. Or save yourself a bunch of time by selecting and then customizing a template that resembles what you need.
Click File > New, and then select or search for the template you want.

 

Find recent files

Whether you only work with files stored on your PC’s local hard drive or you roam across various cloud services, clicking File > Open takes you to
your recently used documents and any files that you may have pinned to your list.

 

Stay connected

Need to work on the go and across different devices?
Click File > Account to sign in and access your recently used files anywhere, on any device, through seamless integration between Office, OneDrive, OneDrive for
Business, and SharePoint.

 

Discover contextual tools

You can make contextual ribbon commands available by selecting relevant objects in your document. For example, clicking within a table displays the Table Tools tab, which offers additional options for the Design and Layout of your tables.

 

Format documents with style

On the Home tab, in the lower right corner of the Styles gallery, click the small arrow to open the Styles pane, where you can visually create, apply, and review formatting styles in your current document.

 

Review and track changes

Whether you just want to check spelling, keep your word count in check, or fully collaborate with other people, the Review tab unveils essential commands to track, discuss, and manage all of the changes made to your documents.

 

Share your work with others

To invite others to view or edit your documents in the cloud, click the Share button in the top right corner of the app window. In the Share pane that opens, you can get a sharing link or send invitations to the people you select.

 

See who else is typing

Co-authoring in Word documents that are shared on OneDrive or SharePoint happens in real-time, which means you can easily see where other authors are making changes in the same document that you’re currently working in.

 

Get help with Word

Type a keyword or phrase into the Tell me what you want to do box on the ribbon to find the Word features and commands that you’re looking for, to read our online Help content, or to find information on the Web.

 

Lookup relevant information

With Smart Lookup, Word searches the Internet for relevant information to define words, phrases, and concepts. The information and images on the task pane can also provide useful context to the ideas outlined in your documents.
