Word 2013 has many new features, but one that I like best is the ability to add useful apps directly into Word and the rest of the Office Suite. Apps is really a misnomer because it is research resources that I am referring to, something to confirm a fact in your writing or an explicit definition or a word.
It is very quick and easy to add one of these “apps” to Office 2013. Follow the steps below to learn how:
- On the Insert tab of your Ribbon look for the group called Apps.
- In the Apps group, click on My Apps | See All.
- You should then see a window displayed that looks like the one below.
- From there, you will have to click on Office Store in order to find the app you would like to install.
- Once you are at the store, you should see a number of available apps, including quite a few that are free.
- For our purposes, let’s select Avery Templates. Click the App.
- Click the Trust it button.
Now, when you click on My apps in the apps group, you will see the Avery Templates app.
As you can see above, I now have the Avery Template app available for the document I am working on.
And that’s just a small example. Go to the App store and check it out! I am sure you will find an app for your purposes too!
