I don’t know much about computer especially its functions so I just rely on the information I’ve read online. Like any other gadgets or devices, there’s always new or the latest version in computer. Like for example the Microsoft Word. It was actually first released in 1983 under the name Multi-Tool Word for Xenix systems. Versions were later written for several other platforms including IBM PCs running DOS in 1983; the Apple Macintosh in 1984, SCO UNIX, OS/2 and Microsoft Windows in 1989. At the beginning of 2003 version, the branding was revised to emphasize Word’s identity as a component within the Office suite; Microsoft began calling it Microsoft Office Word instead of merely Microsoft Word. The latest version is Word 2007 for Windows.

Its latest release includes numerous changes, including a new XML-based file format,. A redesigned interface, an integrated equation editor and bibliographic management. It also has contextual tabs and many other features like Live Preview, Mini Toolbar, Super-tooltips, Quick Access toolbar, Smart Art, and more.

The latest Microsoft Office Word has new style sheets and ability to switch easily among them. It has a new contextual spell checker, signified by a wavy blue underline analogous to the traditional wavy red underline for misspellings and wavy green underline for grammar errors. There is a translation tool tip option available for English, French, and Spanish. There is also automated generation of citations and bibliographies according to defined style rules. Other new functions are preset gallery of cover pages with fields for Author, Title, Date, Abstract, etc., documents comparison engine updated to support moves, differences in tables, and also easy to follow tri-pane view of original document, new document, and differences, full screen reading layout, document inspector, building blocks and more. However, the ability to save multiple versions of a document has been removed. And good news for bloggers like me, blog entries can be authored in Word itself and uploaded directly to a blog. It supported blogging sites that include Windows Live Spaces, WordPress, SharePoint, Blogger, Community Server etc. Word 2007 uses a new file format called docx. Word 2000-2003 users on Windows systems can install a free add-on called the “Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack” to be able to open, edit, and save the new Word 2007 files. The word 2007 can save to the old doc format of Word 97-2003. So it’s time to Bring Classic Style Menus and Toolbars back to Microsoft Word 2007 .
