They were able to preserve the look of the previous MS Word versions so you will find it user-friendly as ever. You may now check your documents though you are not on the computer because you can now send it to your Skydrive Account like which can be checked using Windows Live as long as you already have an account.
It still has the so-called “ribbon user interface” where you can change fonts, size, formatting, style and a lot more which is also available through the browser. For the copy and paste function, it is now updated as there’s a live preview of the document that you are going to paste.

Here are the 5 outstanding features of word 2012
1. Integration of Screenshot feature in Word
The option of screenshot is in the ribbon at the top of your document. When you click screenshot you automatically get few screenshot samples from the background (that is at the back of the word document). You can either select from the available screenshots or click on “Screen clipping” to take the screenshot yourself.
If you select “Screen Clipping”, your word document will get minimized and a resizable window will appear over your background.
2. Remove background of Images
It’s a Photoshop like feature-not as effective though-yet its a great help. With it you can directly remove the background of any picture. It is really good for simple backgrounds while a little untidy and time consuming for the complex ones.
3. New Art Effects in WordArt
WordArt has been updated with new colorful art effects. Select the text, click “Word Art” and a list of options will appear. You can see how your text will appear when you hover the mouse over the option-which is the best part.
4. Artistic Effects
Fantastic new artistic effects have been added in Word 2010! Select the image and click on “Artistic Effects” from the ribbon. You get a bunch of options like Pencil Sketch, Chalk Sketch, Glowy Edges, Photocopy etc
5. Ligatures
Ligatures usually replace consecutive characters sharing common components. However, the application and the system still recognizes the characters in its individual components thus enabling spell checkers and search facilities.
Remember that ligatures can be supported only if they are present in the font. In Word 2010, OpenType ligatures aren’t enabled by default. 
Hope these helped.
Have a nice day.
