  • Last Updated : 06 Jun, 2021

Microsoft Word or MS Word (often called word) is a graphical word processing program by Microsoft Corporation. The purpose of MS Word is to allow the users to type and save documents. Similar to other word processors, it has various helpful tools to make documents. 

Sometimes the information you include in your document is best displayed in columns. Not only can columns help improve readability, but some types of documents—like newspaper articles, newsletters, and flyers—are often written in column format. Word also allows you to adjust your columns by adding column breaks.
