4 Advanced Microsoft Word Features Perfect for Business

If you run a business, you know how important to have access to the online world. And, to keep a check on all the professional processes, Microsoft Office is an inevitable tool that everyone needs access to. Be it for typing out documents, creating presentations, or maintaining a spread sheet, the benefits are quite versatile.

Simply having access to the Windows 7 Enterprise Key won’t sort your work if you don’t have any idea of the following Word features we are about to share.

  • Go Full Screen

How often have you wanted to work without any distractions but you didn’t know how to achieve that? Sounds quite familiar, doesn’t it? Well, MS Word allows you to hide the ribbon menu with a simple few clicks, enabling you to go full screen to make the most use out of the available screen space.

With a larger screen space, you can fit in more work and work without any distractions or notifications popping in round the clock. All you have to do is click on Ctrl+F1 and the ribbon will be hidden, giving you complete access to the screen. This is perfect for when you are conducting business meetings too.

  • Use Outline View

When it comes to business productivity, having access to all the main ideas and outlines of the project can be a sweet cherry on top of the game. Word allows you to do that by reorganizing with the outline view.

The main function of the outline view feature is to help you fine-tune your document and organize it with text blocks and different headings so you know what’s important and what you need to emphasize the next time in a meeting. 

For enabling this, go to Ribbon and go to the View tab and then click on the Outline feature from there. You can customize things from there on.

  • Quick Brainstorming Tool

Being stuck in a creative rut is quite common and when you are stuck in a similar situation, all you have to do is double-click anywhere on the screen and kick start your typing experience. This is a type of freestyle writing that allows you to dump all your thoughts into one place before you start getting those creative juices flowing.

Most business professionals leverage this particular feature as a mind mapping tool on MS Word and you can leverage it too.

  • Tables to Graphs

When you are a business professional, chances are that your work will involve a lot of tables, and graph preparation. Converting the tables into graphs can be tedious work if you haven’t done it before. But, what if we told you that you can do it with 3 steps?

Here’s what you need to do:

  • Click on the Insert tab
  • Click on “Object” that’s present under the Text group. This will open the dialog box
  • Under that, choose Microsoft Graph Chart
  • Click OK. 

And, your table will be converted into a chart in a matter of seconds. If you want a quicker way to get around the data during presentations, this is a good trick you should know of.
