Word 2016 encourages online teamwork

What you've read until now are some of the general features that we all expect from this program. However, if it continues to be the favorite software for millions of users it's because Microsoft has worked to adapt its features to how we work nowadays, both in the professional, educational and domestic scopes.

A tool present at schools, homes and offices.

We're continuously connected to the Internet so it sounds fair to encourage this aspect in any program, and Word wasn't going to be any less. That's why it has included file synchronization with OneDrive in order to grant reading and writing permissions with other users. Therefore, if you work collaboratively you'll always have access to the most recent version of the document. And all the latter, with space to add comments and replies, so that all member of the team can get to know what design, contents and format modifications have been carried out.

However, the history version allows us to recover documents before any changes were made, therefore, if there were an error, you can always recover a previous version.

You can download a free trial version, but you'll have to sign up for Office 365 and provide your credit card details... In any case, you just might end up finding this subscription method interesting as you'll always have the latest updates online ready to be downloaded.

Requirements and additional information:
  • Minimum operating system requirements: Windows 7.

Microsoft Word Portable: can it be downloaded?

Microsoft doesn’t offer us a portable version of its text editor Microsoft Word as such, there’s no such thing as a portable version of this software to save having to install it and that’s much lighter, which are basically two of the most essential features of this kind of program. If you come across anything on the Internet referring to a portable version of Word for Windows it will either be a fake program full of malware or a pirate version with all the problems that using this kind of software can entail. In fact, you yourself can create your own portable version with the help of specialized tools to reduce the size of EXE files but you would be infringing the terms and conditions of use of this program and we can definitely not encourage you to do so. To the date, there’s never been an official portable version of this program, so whatever you try to download will be of extremely dubious nature.
