    Word should have a permanent taskbaar icon that opens a new document page without maximizing anything else.A desktop icon does this, but if it is covered you have to click a document on the tadkbar and then click "Word" on a list.

    In other words, simply have a permanent icon on the taskbar that opens and maximizes a new Word document page and does noyhing else.

    • For the ribbon collapse

      There is a little arrow head to collapse it but not one to expand. Please add on to expand.

      • Autosave with Dropbox and local storage

        Please allow all Office apps to use Autosave with Dropbox and other cloud storage providers. Autosave with local storage would be great too. I have too many performance issues with OneDrive and end up have sync issues.

        • I would like to have a boolean search function.

          When control F is done, one should be able to get something like Excel filter options

                • Universal document field update

                  For large documents with many section breaks it would be highly useful to have a "universal field" update function which would update a certain field across all sections - not having to update the field in each section individually.

                  • Right click on a sentence, provide an option to make a new linked paragraph stub that uses that sentence as its topic sentence.

                    Basically if I write out an introductory paragraph that mentions several ideas, it would be great if I could just highlight each of those sentences, right click, and click an option to create a paragraph stub. That way I would have an outline I could just fill in, and I'd be sure not to miss any of my points.

                    • Text to speech to correct pronounciation of "live"

                      The text to speech reads "Long live the king" in the wrong way. It says it like "live" as is "live audience"

                      • Allow images to transfer from gmail to word.

                        Please allow images to transfer to word from gmail. I do tutorials and have to save, then copy/paste to word, every image included in email. This sometimes takes quite a bit of time. I used to be able to do one copy then paste to get the entire tutorial.

                        • Office Hogar y Estudiantes 2016

                          Con la última versión de Office Hogar y Estudiantes 2016 16.0.11029.20079 la presentación de las ventanas desplegables de estilo quedan feas, aparece una columna a la izquierda que tapa parte del texto de los estilos. Me gustaría que corrigieran esto lo antes posible, y además poder enviarles una imagen de cómo queda ahora mismo.

                          • To have different language changes. Example:Latin,Arabic,Japanese,Chinese

                            We don`t always,speak English. So,if we want to present a document to a crowd, which speaks a different tongue, we need that language.

                            • WORD 365 allow using format painter on images

                              Format painter is greyed out when image is selected. Each image must be formatted separately. This requires unnecessary steps.

                                    Es gibt immer noch die uralten Dialogfenster. 1. sind die in der Größe viel zu klein und zweitens fummelt MS andauernd nur etwas außenherum, anstatt die bisherigen mal anzupassen.
                                    Das gilt auch für Windows.

                                      • Combine Word & Excel as one entity to make them more compatible so small companies or production areas can have 1 person do it all.

                                        Spreadsheet & typing information is required to properly manage a small business or any production area in any sized business. Please make Excel & Word so they're compatible as "one entity" instead of having to insert one into the other or visa-versa. I was a Management Consultant from 1975-1998. Having these two tools combined so they're easier to use as one tool would make a managers job significantly easier and more productive; plus give Microsoft a new product to sell.
