Get The Most From Microsoft Word

To get the most from Microsoft Word, you need to understand that any of Word’s most powerful formatting and processing tools remain hidden.  Until you discover where they are and learn how to use them, you may be frustrated with not getting the most out of your software?

Microsoft Word is an essential tool for any business in today’s digital age, to help you create documents and manage your business. Proficiency in Word is a vital skill that is useful for both complex business requirements as well as basic day-to-day purposes. The program can do more than just put words on paper, it also incorporates desktop publishing, design and data handling features, allowing businesses to create many different types of professional documents.

Documents and Forms

You can use Word to create just about any kind of business document, including company reports, presentations, budgets, proposals and plans. It can help you build a library of key forms, such as invoices, statements, receipts, memos and agendas. Word’s design features are easy to use, enabling you to use data visualisation tools to add tables, charts and graphs to your documents.


If you need a calendar or budget report, for instance, use Word’s template search feature to find and download one of those templates. After customising the template, you can save it as a new template and allow others in your organisation to use it as a starting point for their documents and publications.

Desktop Publishing

You can manipulate text, insert headings, create borders, add tables and move images wherever you like using Word. Use your own pictures to design documents like newsletters, or just include images from the clip art library. Add colourful flair to publications using WordArt.


You can use Word’s label wizard to generate and print your own labels. If you have a mailing list in Excel, or another data source, use Word’s mail merge feature to extract that data and generate customised letters that contain personalised information.

These features are just a few of Microsoft Word’s user-friendly tools that can help you create a professional grade document.
