- What is Word and what's it for?
Microsoft Word is a computer program aimed at text processing. Therefore, it can be used to write texts for any purpose: academic, professional, creative… It comes along with a complete pack of tools that allow use to modify the format of our write. The latter let us modify from the type and size of the font to the design of the page, as well as including graphical elements such as images or tables. It also allows us to add multimedia video and audio files but that isn’t very useful if we’re thinking about printing our document.
- How Microsoft Word works
All Microsoft Word pages have three basic parts: the text area where we’ll write the text, the toolbar above the text and another bar below the text with zoom tool and the word counter, amongst other options. Once you open a new document, you can change the language if you wish by going to the bar at the bottom of the screen and choosing any of the languages compatible with the program.
- How to use Microsoft Word
To start off, you need to install the program, an obvious step that needs to be reminded. Once you’ve opened the application, you’ll be offered different options on its interface, whether to create a new blank document, make use of a tutorial or choose any of the many templates available: documents with their own style and format that help us to keep things simple. Just choose any of these options and the interface will automatically show you what you’ve chosen.

We can do so without any trouble if the PDF to be converted has been generated by mean of Word’s own tool that we can find in the File menu with the Export function.

- 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.
