Microsoft Word 2010 offers the best of all worlds: enhanced features to create professional-quality documents, easier ways to work together with people, and almost-anywhere access to your files.

Designed to give you the finest document-formatting tools, Word 2010 also helps you easily organize and write your documents more efficiently, and stay within reach so you can capture your best ideas whenever and wherever they occur.

Create visually compelling documents more easily than ever
Word 2010 provides an array of new and improved tools that help you look like a design pro and make your important content stand out.

  • Add impressive formatting effects--such as gradient fills and reflections--directly to the text in your document. You can now apply many of the same effects to text and shapes that you might already use for pictures, charts, and SmartArt graphics.

  • Use new and improved picture editing tools--including versatile artistic effects and advanced correction, color, and cropping tools--to fine-tune every picture in your document to look its absolute best.

  • Choose from more customizable Office themes to coordinate colors, fonts, and graphic formatting effects throughout your documents. Customize themes to use your own personal or business branding. The same Office themes are available in Microsoft PowerPoint and Excel 2010, so it's easy to give all your documents a consistent, professional look.
  • Make a statement with a wide selection of SmartArt graphics--including many new layouts for organization charts and picture diagrams--to create impressive graphics as easily as typing a bulleted list. SmartArt graphics automatically coordinate with your chosen document theme, so great-looking formatting for all your document content is just a couple of clicks away.

Save time and simplify your work
Word 2010 provides tools that save time and simplify your work.

  • Find your way with the improved Navigation Pane and Find tools. These new enhancements make it easier than ever to browse, search, and even reorganize document content right from a single, easy-to-use pane.

  • Recover draft versions of files that you closed without saving. That's right. The version recovery feature is just one of many new features available from the new Microsoft Office Backstage view. Backstage view replaces the traditional File menu in all Office 2010 applications to provide a centralized, organized space for all document management tasks.
  • Easily customize the improved Ribbon to make the commands you need most accessible. Create custom tabs or even customize built-in tabs.

Work together more successfully
If you work with others on documents and projects, Word 2010 has the tools you need.

  • Using new co-authoring capabilities, you can now edit the same document, at the same time, as other team members in other locations. You can even communicate instantly as you work, directly from Word.1, 2

  • If you work for a company running SharePoint Foundation 2010 this functionality can be used within the firewall. With Office Communicator now integrated throughout several Office 2010 programs, you can view presence information that shows the availability of other authors and initiate instant messaging or voice calls directly from Word.
  • If you're in a small company or use Word 2010 for your home or school work, you can take advantage of co-authoring features though Windows Live. All you need is a free Windows Live ID to simultaneously edit documents with others. An instant messenger account (such as the free Windows Live Messenger) is required to view presence of authors and start an instant messaging conversation.

Access your information from more places
Your ideas, deadlines, projects, and work emergencies don't always occur conveniently when you are at your desk. Fortunately, you now have the power to get things done when and where you need to, from the Web or even from your smartphone.3

  • Microsoft Word Web App is an online companion to Microsoft Word that enables you to extend your Word experience to the browser. View a high fidelity version of your documents and make light edits as well. Access some of the same formatting and editing tools that are in Word 2010, and work in a familiar editing environment, from almost any computer with a Web browser.2
  • Microsoft Word Mobile 2010 gives you a lightweight editor for your documents that's especially designed for easy use on your Windows phone.4

Whether you're writing that career-making report, working with a team on the next big pitch, drafting your resume, or getting work done on the run, Word 2010 makes it easier to get what you need done more quickly, with more flexibility, and with better results.

1 Instant messaging and presence requires one of the following: Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2 with Microsoft Office Communicator 2007 R2; Windows Live Messenger, or another instant messaging application that supports IMessenger. Voice calls require Office Communications Server 2007 R2 with Office Communicator 2007 R2 or an instant messaging application that supports IMessengerAdvanced.
2 Requires Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 or a Windows Live ID.

I purchased Word 2010 as part of Office 2010 suite. I have been using Word 2003 at home/work prior to that, although we use Outlook 2007 at work. I am used to the ribbon interface and don't mind it as I do think once you get used to it, it is an improvement over the previous interface. But my main gripe with Word 2010 and the entire Office 2010 suite (especially Outlook 2010) is that it is almost like beta software. It is full of bugs. I have had to reinstall Office 2010 at least 6 times. The software will be working, then all of a sudden every time you open the software, it tries to install it again. There seem to be a lot of conflicts running on a 64-bit operating system (I am on Win 7 64-bit).

Overall, when the software was usable, it was not terrible. But save yourself some headache. "If it ain't broke, don't upgrade..." because once you do, it will be broken.

I am tempted to uninstall the entire suite and roll back to Office 2003.

1.0 out of 5 stars Acts Like Introductory Software Full of Bugs December 1, 2010
Platform for Display:PC Disc
If the title was stripped from the software and I was asked to do a blind test on it, testing it, I would be convinced after giving it a full run this was a newly introduced software from all of the unresponsive and quirky behavior I experienced. It actually fights against your actions: you can try, and I say try, to copy and paste somethings and it will not do it, or it will jump your cursor some other place. And one of the persons responsible for it has a control-issue as this person wants to shove his/her idea of the perfect font, calibri/cambria, onto everyone, every single time, at the line spacing he/she wants. Every time you open up a new document, the font is Cambria/Calibri and set at 11. So if you like times new roman or Arial and 12 points, you have to each time reset it, you can't just start typing. This is a major time-consuming irritation.

In addition, another programmer had a wicked streak by making every document start with 10 points after each line and multiple lines setting, so you have to go in an reset the line spacing EACH time to single spacing if you want it, and the worse of it is, you can't just do several changes at once---it will jump you out of each change, so you have to go back several times to change line spacing or font attributes, making this a Productivity Stripper.

Now if after my blind test, I saw this was a 2010 version of Word, I would say Microsoft has accomplished to take a workable program and put it backwards by 2010 steps. Meanness? Arrogance? Greed to spit out something new for an excuse to get people to buy more? Whatever, it is worth stomping on the box, and the disc if you get it only, and keep on using your older Word programs.

1.0 out of 5 stars I feel like it's been created to make me fail January 25, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Disc
Awful, Awful, Terrible product. I swear word 2010 it is out to get me - it's like a mean 5 year old. Adding numbering and bullets to documents have never been easy on word, but it was manageable - now it's apparently their way or the highway:

"You want to fix that indentation so it actually lines up with the line directly above? NO."
"You want to make the next numbered line align with the set in the last paragraph? I don't think so."
"Wait you want to print pages 49 - 50? No, I'm not going to do that but I'm not going to tell you why. You can print any of those pages alone, or the entire document, but no, you can't print those three together."

Seriously I'm approaching my deadline and half of my work is fighting with Word. I should be working on it right now but got so frustrated, instead of destroying my computer in rage, I decided to Google "Word 2010 F-ing Sucks" and Amazon review was the first thing that popped up so am attempting to channel my rage into this review. Rage... Subsiding... Now to copy and paste this review as many places as possible. I know it's pointless, but it's making me feel better. It's too late for this project, but I'm absolutely going to switch to some other alternative and never use this awful program again.

5.0 out of 5 stars It took me by surprise June 26, 2010
Platform for Display:PC Disc|Verified Purchase
I had tried the Beta version but uninstalled that and went back to Word 2002, which I swore by. I decided to try the final release and was pleasantly surprised. I am working on a brand new book, and now I can find reference material with one mouse click. I have had no headaches at all with this fresh release. I am not impressed with the upgraded "find" feature but other than that once you learn how to navigate it is smooth sailing. Even changing template size on a document was easier than before. If there is any drawback to this latest version it is the new file format. Most publishers still ask for doc. files, which means using compatibility mode or saving as a doc file. They do suggest not saving old doc files in the new mode and they are correct. The formatting is ruined when you try that. There are also some new features that you cannot use while working in compatibility mode. I am finding Word 2010 to be quite an improvement over all. Two things I will share from experience. You have to entirely remove the Beta version to install from CD. It is also best to open Word first and then select your old doc file. Sometimes when you just click on a doc file it will open in read-only mode.
