What is Microsoft Office?

Microsoft Office, or simply Office, is a collection of client and server software as well as services created by Microsoft. Bill Gates initially announced it at COMDEX in Las Vegas on August 1, 1988.

The History of Microsoft Office

Bill Gates initially announced it at COMDEX in Las Vegas on August 1, 1988. Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft PowerPoint were included in the initial version of Office, which was originally a marketing phrase for an office suite (a packaged set of productivity apps).

Features

Sass

Smart Lookup

The Smart Lookup tool allows you to look up a term immediately from within a Microsoft Word document, saving you time from having to open a web page or a dictionary. You'd be back to your writing in less time than it would take to open a webpage.

Sass

Simultaneous Collaboration

This function, which is available through Microsoft Word and PowerPoint Presentations, allows you to collaborate in real time with your colleagues and workers. Simultaneous Collaboration shows what each team member is working on the document at the same time. It's worth noting that, while PowerPoint supports Simultaneous Collaboration, real-time typing is currently unavailable in PowerPoint presentations.

Share Large Files As A URL

Large files are no longer a bottleneck for companies. If you need to transfer a huge file, you can now use OneDrive to do so quickly by sending it as a private URL. You will save a lot of time because you will no longer have to wait for the file to upload. The recipient also doesn't have to wait for the file to download. Any huge files attached to an email will be converted to a link, which the receiver can then access or download.
