Microsoft Office Word or Office Word is a word processor developed by Microsoft and part of the Microsoft Office suite of applications. It was originally released for Xenix systems on October 25, 1983 under the name “Multi-Tool Word.”

Succeeding versions were later developed for some other operating systems like in 1983 for IBM computers running on DOS, in 1985 for Macintosh computers running on the classic Mac operating system and AT&T UNIX PC, in 1989 for Microsoft Windows, and others. Microsoft Office Word is available as part of the Microsoft Office suite and also as a standalone product.

Microsoft Office Word’s native file format is indicated by either DOC (.doc) or DOCX (.docx). Though the DOC extension has been used in many different versions of Office Word, it literally covers four different file formats:

  • Word for Windows 1 and 2; Word 3 and 4 for Mac
  • Word for DOS
  • Word 6 and Word 95 for Windows; Word 6 for Mac
  • Word 97 and higher for Windows; Word 98 and higher for Mac

The newer extension, .docx, indicates the Office Open XML international standard for Office documents which is used in Office Word 2007 and higher for Microsoft Windows and Office Word 2008 and higher for OS X.
