MS Word Count

We’ve all had our moments when we needed to know just how many words are in a document. Maybe it’s a paper, essay submission or whatever, but the why isn’t important… it’s the “how many” that counts.

If you find yourself in this particular situation, then here’s where you’ll find a lot of help – anything would beat trying to count by hand!

I actually have two suggestions today regarding the number of words in your document:

1. The Status Bar
2. The Review Tab of the Ribbon

Let’s start with the status bar:

If you right-click on Word’s status bar you’ll see a huge list of information that you can choose to have displayed.

Among them is Word Count.

If you select this option, you’ll be able to see the current document’s word count in the bottom left corner of your program window.

The second place to find such information is on the Review tab of the Ribbon, in the Proofing section.

As you can see, there’s a Word Count button. When you click it, here’s the information it will provide:

Obviously, it’s more than just a word count, so if you ever need any of the other stuff, now you know where to find it.

Who knew that so much information about your document was so readily available?
