Date Added: Mar 31, 2011
|Microsoft Word Viewer is an essential tool for anyone who does not have MS Office installed on their computer. This tool allows user to open, print and copy Word documents without having to install MS Office on their system. Installing MS Word Viewer can be a big relief for users who do not want to spend extra amount for MS Office suite as they do not have much work on it.
MS Word Viewer works with all versions of Word like 97, 2000, 2003, 2007 and also the latest 2010. Using this application you can open, print and copy various file formats such as, Word Document, Word Macro-Enabled Document, Rich Text Format, Text, Web page formats, XML, WordPerfect and many more.
Although MS Word Viewer provided by Microsoft is to benefit users who do not have MS Office installed on their computer, this tool comes with certain disadvantages. With Word Viewer you can only open, copy and print documents but not save any changes made to the document.
To overcome this hurdle you can always copy the text and paste it on Notepad which will allow you to print the edited document. Another important thing to keep in mind is that not all version of this application supports all MS Word formats i.e., some Word Viewer version will support MS Word 2003 but will not support 2007. It is therefore important to download the compatibility pack for this application if you want to view all versions of Word document.
You can download MS Word Viewer directly from Microsoft's site by going to its Download Centre and selecting Downloads and Trials tab. After this you need to type 'Microsoft Word Viewer' and hit Enter. After this step you will get a list of sites from where you can download the software.
