Quick Word Count in MS Word

Many times you want to know the number of words in a document
and you have to go through a few menus to run the word count.
Well, there is a quicker way.

Go to View > Toolbars, and select Word Count.

You will get a small little bar show up as a floater.
Now, just drag that floating toolbar onto your main toolbar
somewhere and it will then append itself there.

Now, all you need to do is hit the "Recount" button to get a quick, one-click word count at any time.

Very handy for you students. :-)
