Top 10 Microsoft Word 2013 Features You
Should Know About
With the new Windows 8, Microsoft steered the design of the popular operating system towards
the mobile devices, and the rest of Microsoft products followed along. Microsoft Word 2013 is a
no different story, and where it received multiple changes, some of them really stood out to
prove its superiority among the competitors. Just like we covered the best 10 features of Excel
2013 and PowerPoint 2013, today, we bring you the top 10 features of Microsoft Word 2013.
1: Work On The Cloud!
Windows 8 is designed for the future of both Cloud and Mobile computing. Nearly all software
released since have had the features of cloud integration, and Microsoft Word also follows the
same concept. PowerPoint, Excel, Word all of them offer Microsoft’s SkyDrive storage to its
users for storing and retrieving files on the go.
2: Control Your Design
Word 2007 and 2010 introduced many interesting ways to design your document, but the
problem was that features were scattered all over the
interface. Word 2013 incorporates all of them into a
single design tab, making your work a lot easier. It also
allows you to preview your changes before actually
applying it to the document, giving you the freedom to
experiment with the document design without having to
worry about messing up the document.
3: Reading Just Got Easier
The new Word makes it much easier to read files.
Documents are sized to fit the screen and you can use
arrow buttons on the sides of the screen to navigate
between the pages (or easy swipe if you’re using a touch
screen device). Read More
4: Edit PDFs In Word
Gone are the days when you would use multiple software to
edit PDF and Word files. MS Word 2013 allows you to open
and edit PDF files, make changes to tables and images and

and only expand the ones that you are currently working on, making your workspace a lot
cleaner and easier to manage.
7: Managing Tables In Word Have Never Been

color using which you can paint the border on the tables.
