Microsoft Word is so integral to our digital lives that it has successfully commandeered the actual word, “Word.” If you refer to the once-nonsensical phrases like “Word docs,” “editing in Word,” or “a Word update,” people will know exactly what you are talking about. That’s the power of ubiquity.
Even though the program has since been sucked into the greater branding gravity of Microsoft Office, Word still stands alone as the program with which everyone—regardless of their technological prowess—is at least somewhat familiar.
The long-dominant word processing software faces a new class of cloud-based competition, and Microsoft has even gotten in on the action with Office 365. But the well-known Word software still remains the go-to tool for producing all our important docs (except for Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin, who keeps it insane-person old school by writing on a DOS word processor). And why shouldn’t it be? Word is dependable, customizable, and with lots of baked-in functionality.
Old veteran Word users like yourself probably think there’s nothing left to learn. Oh, but there’s always room for more knowledge! Here we present 13 functions that aren’t hidden, but aren’t exactly spelled out either. Click through to uncover little semi-hidden treats that only power user super ninjas know.
Note: These tips were tested using Microsoft Word 2010 on a PC and Microsoft Word 2008 for Mac. Not all tips may be available or in the exact same locale on your version.

The best way to add value is to find the intersection between what people are willing to pay for and what service or product you can offer that is aligned with your values, strengths and goals.
