Documents such as letters, resumes, brochures and research papers can be created with professional results in a user friendly interface, in this chapter, we will study about some simple and advanced features of MS Word.

Find and Replace
When you create a document in Microsoft Word, you may decide to change a certain word or phrase that is repeated throughout the document. For example, in your Computer project on Email, you may have spelt E-mail in two different ways -  E - mail and e-mail. For the sake of consistency, you can change all the instances of the word to e- mail with the Find and Replace feature of Word.
