Follow me on:

Do you ever need to know how many words are in a document? Maybe you are writing an academic paper with a strict word count? Or maybe it is a legal document and you pay by the word? Sometimes you may have specific word counts placed on your business documents. There has to be an easy way to see how many words are in your documents!

Wouldn't you know that Microsoft Word displays this information in the Status Bar! For more information on viewing word counts in your Microsoft documents, make sure to read Showing the Number of Words in a Microsoft Word Document.
