A word processor is software or a device that allows users to create, edit, and print documents. It enables you to write text, store it electronically, display it on a screen, modify it by entering commands and characters from the keyboard, and print it. Of all computer applications, word processing is the most common.

group of people at a table in a meeting

Word processing has evolved into much more than words typed on a piece of paper. It is a means to communicate with others and create content for websites, graphic design, blogs, and publications of all types.

Modern word processing software and applications are integrated into the cloud. If you save your documents to your cloud-based storage, you can retrieve them from any device and continue to work with and share your documents.

Common Word Processing Software:

  • Microsoft Word
  • WordPerfect
  • Google Docs
  • Office 365
  • Apple Pages

Since Microsoft Word is widely used in industry, and we are using Microsoft Windows, we will focus on Word going forward. There are many similarities across word processing software, so the skills we are learning can be translated to other software and apps. The following “Practice It” assignments are designed to be completed using Microsoft Word in Office 365 on a PC with Windows 10 or higher.
