MS Word 2016 is a Fantastic Product

With this app, I have the best writing experience ever. No other apps come close. The fluid animations and smooth typing and text selection make working a delightful experience. For writing basic documents, it's easy to get started. But once you master it, you can do amazing stuff! There are great online video tutorial on learning these extra cool capabilities. Have fun creating something awesome, today. Best, Nazmus




Good program

Had to purchase because work-issued program wouldn't upgrade, and couldn't access documents. This gives me my work back.

Microsoft Word 2016-Office3

I recently purchased a HP Chrome laptop and had ordered 'word' however, I had to return it because it would not work on this computer. Not sure why! I wish it would work. I had an older version on the computer I had before and it worked fine.

Confusing website

I wanted to buy word for mac but their website was so confusing that I ended up buying for windows and then wasting 30mins with the customer care to return it and get the mac one. Their workflows are still modeling old world where people buy CDs and then try to download stuff





I needed to write a research and i needed to do spacing, i went to settings and i pressed the abc icon and it deleted my work..........:(
