Microsoft Word 2013 Medialess Retail Box
Simple and Powerful Documents
Word 2013 is cleaner, sleeker, and easier on the eyes. Better templates and design tools help you put the finishing touch on documents, and you'll find updated ways to share and work with others. Do more with your docs: Pop in an online video, open a PDF and edit the content, align pictures and diagrams with minimal fuss. The new Read Mode is clean and distraction-free and it works great on tablets. Teaming-up is better too, with direct connections to your online spaces and streamlined review features like Simple Markup and comments.
Visualize Your Work
Know what your documents will look like on the page before you print with Read Mode in Microsoft Word. Read Mode allows you to view your content in an easily readable format. During Read Mode editing tools are removed to minimize distractions, but you still have access to the tools that are always handy for reading such as Define, Translate, and Search on Web
Double-tap with your finger or double-click with your mouse to zoom in and make tables, charts and images in your document fill the screen. Focus on and take in the information, then tap or click again outside the object to zoom out and continue reading. Collapse or expand parts of a document with just a tap or click. Put summaries in headings and leave it to readers to open the section and read the details if they want.
A new revision view, Simple Markup, provides a clean, uncomplicated view of your document, but you still see indicators where tracked changes have been made. Comments now have a reply button. You can debate and easily track comments right next to the relevant text. And when a comment is addressed and no longer requires attention, you can mark it as done. It will be greyed out to keep out of your way, but the conversation will still be there if you need to revisit it later.

Wow, what a difference! Everything I was used to was in a different place, and there was this 'ribbon' thingie, and oh my gosh I don't need another learning curve, BUT--- About two hours in on the software and I was sold! Everything is sooo much easier to accomplish in Word2013 than I was used to before. Once I got accustomed to where everything was organized in the Tabs, using the software became almost reflexive. A tip I put into use was putting frequently performed tasks up onto the quick launch bar, so I don't have to go through the file menu every time I wanted to open or save or print. I have no complaints about the program, but I do miss my little canine Office Assistant buddy. ;-) Small sacrifice to make for such a greater amount of power and capabilities. I especially like the enhanced Navigation/Search function.
I am a professional writer, with a Masters degree and more than 40 years in the business to prove it. When I started out, my dad bought me an IBM Selectric II Typewriter that had a built-in correcting tape and a rotating type ball; state-of-the-art for the 1970s! Recently, I purchased Microsoft Word 2013 Medialess Retail Box for my Dell PC, thinking I would need MS Publisher, too, for turning out Kindle ebook covers and copy. Wrong! Once I started navigating through the new Word program, I happily discovered that it could do everything I needed, wanted, dreamed of, and then some. We are talking major learning curve here, but in the best way. And My Choice Software.com had it for 33% off the going price of anyone else! It's all good . . . and Microsoft and My Choice Software just made it a whole lot better!
after having read several of the reviews I was hesitant to purchase Word 2013 because many purchasers had trouble downloading and couldn't get refunds through My Choice Software and Microsoft IT was of NO help. I went ahead and purchased it. I do not need Excel, Power Point, or anything else so this was the best option for me. When I clicked on the link through My Choice Software, it had me log into my Microsoft account and then said it had trouble and was unable to allow me to continue 'at this time.' I then went to my email (remembering some previous purchasers had to do this) and clicked on the 'download from Office' link. This took me right to where I needed to go. It was installed on my computer in less than 20 minutes.
I'm giving it a '4,' not because of anything to do with downloading (or My Choice Software). It's because Word is not always the easiest program to navigate. There are times when you have to click, click, right click, click just to do one small thing. I hope this review helps somebody. It really was no big deal.
