    If you have just migrated from Word 2003 to Word 2010, the first thing that you will notice is the new interface, which has changed dramatically.

    Word 2010 uses a new default document format: DOCX. This allows you to take advantage of the newest tools and features available in Word 2010. The two formats - DOC and DOCX - can, however, be opened in both Word 2003 and Word 2010. Word 2010 can be used to convert your existing files into DOCX format, or - if you want to guarantee backwards-compatibility and easy sharing with earlier versions of Word - it can save your documents in DOC format. Just be aware that in some cases this will result in fidelity loss (for certain document elements) or changes being made to your document's page layout. FREE ACCESS

    There are a number of different ways of sharing and publishing your document in Word 2010. Just like in Word 2003, you can save your document as a PDF, which is very useful if you want to protect your document from unwanted modification or are unsure of which application users might use to open it. Word 2010 lets you not only convert your document into PDF but will also attach it to a new email automatically. You can even publish new documents on your blog without having to leave the Word 2010 interface. FREE ACCESS

With these tools, you can really customize your document and give it a professional and attractive look. FREE ACCESS

    The search and document navigation tools in Word 2003 have been updated and streamlined in Word 2010. The navigation pane in the new version of Word now gives you access to your section headings, search results, and page thumbnails. The Go To, Advanced Find, and Find & Replace tools are also present and correct in Word 2010. FREE ACCESS

    The diagram and drawing tools from Word 2003 have been improved in Word 2010.

    You will often need to insert charts and data visualizations into your Word 2010 document. While in Word 2003, you had to insert your chart as an Excel or graphical object, in Word 2010 the chart tools have been entirely integrated. It is now much easier to change your data labels, completely reformat your chart's appearance, and edit your data values. FREE ACCESS

    While it was possible to make basic changes to your image properties in Word 2003, Word 2010 offers far greater scope for editing your pictures and illustrations. In Word 2010, you get greater control over the contrast, brightness, and color levels, while it is now also possible to apply artistic filters and effects to your image. Another improvement on the Word 2003 tools is the ability to insert a screenshot from other open windows or your desktop. FREE ACCESS
