Here, is a list of 4 free Word viewer software for Windows.

Microsoft Word is a feature-rich word processing software, which is being used widely all over the world. You often create and edit documents in Word and save them for later use. However, it’s not necessary that every machine on which you intend to open that document, has Microsoft word installed on it. Also, if you are using an older version of Microsoft Word, you won’t be able to open Word documents in latest .DOCX format. A Word Viewer comes handy in these situations since it lets you open and read Word documents in all formats, without having to install the whole Microsoft Word application. Another good advantage of using these Word Viewer applications is that they are very lightweight and don’t slow down your computer speed, when in use.

Here, we are going to discuss about 4 such free Word Viewer, which lets you open and view Word documents, when you don’t have Microsoft Word or any other word processing software installed on your system.

Microsoft Office Word Viewer:

Free Word Viewer

Microsoft Office Word Viewer is a free software to open, view, copy, and print Word documents, when you don’t have Word installed on your PC. The app has been developed by Microsoft and is available for free on its official website. It provides a user-friendly interface to allow users to easily open and read all kinds of Word documents. However, it’s not a multi-window Viewer. You can open just a single document at a time. The document will be opened in its original layout, clearly displaying all the images inserted in the document.

Word Reader is a free Word Viewer application that lets you view Word documents in all formats. It’s a handy and lightweight tool, which allows you to open and view Word documents, without prior installation of Microsoft Word. The supported formats include .DOCX (MicroSoft Word 2007-2010 format), .DOC (MicroSoft Word 97-2003 format), .RTF (Rich Text Format), .TXT (Plain Text Format), and .HTML ( Hyper Text Markup Language format).

It also shows some convert file and PDF document viewing features on its interface, but those are available only with the paid version.

A very good thing about this Word Viewer is that it opens each Word document in separate resizable window, allowing you to compare two or more documents at the same time. Word Reader offers previewing any Word file, WordPad file, or Notepad file in its original layout, but it can’t open images in the file. It blackouts the document area which contains images.

Word Reader also provides some other interesting features, like for example, you can zoom the document, increase the font size, search for any text in the document, or even print a hard copy of it. Word reader is currently available in many languages, including English, German, Chinese, Italian, Japanese, and French.
