Creating document in MS Word is a process of using a template or blank document template to design a prototype and readable document for personal or official use.
To create a document, you will need a word processing application installed in your computer system. You might also use online word processing apps such as Google Docs, Zoho Writer, Pages, Office online, etc.
There are different word processing desktop applications that you can use to create a document. Some of them are Pages for Apple devices, WordPerfect for Windows only, and LibreOffice for Linux, Windows, and Mac. In this tutorial, our emphasis is on creating a document using Microsoft Word only.
Creating Document in MS Word
Creating document in MS Word begins with saving a new document or by creating a file. There are two options:
- Create a document from available templates
- Start with a blank document template
Every document created will be saved to allow us to have access to them in the future. Also, every change made to a document requires saving to sustain the changes. This means that when something is added or removed from a document, it must be saved to sustain the changes. Before we delve into creating different kinds of documents, let us understand how to save a document. This is the process of creating a file. You can create a file in any compatible application using a similar method.
