The Word 2013 Software (Non-Commercial) from Microsoft improves on the 2010 version by retaining the reliability of Word while adding new features that increase productivity. Word 2013 allows you to work with more media types, such as online videos and pictures, without having to leave Word. You can also open PDFs and edit them as well.
The innovative Read Mode offers a clean and distraction-free way of reviewing your document, ideal for tablets and other portable devices. You can also team up with colleagues by placing comments right next to the text where they can see it. In order to utilize this feature, you'll need access to the Internet and a Microsoft account.
Live Layout lets you experiment. When you drag a photo, video or shape to a position, text reflows instantly around it. Release the mouse button and your object and surrounding text stay right where you want them. You can also choose from over 40 categories of Word templates to get you started.
Please note that this product comes with a product key code. There is no installation DVD.
