If you wonder how you know the number of paragraphs, characters, lines, and word-count in your files in Microsoft Word 365, this post is for you. There is a myriad of browser-based word-count tools you can use, but fortunately, Office 365 has a word-count functionality.

If you want to process word-count in Microsoft Word 365, the sequence is the same in Word 2016, Word 2013, Word 2010, Word 2007, and most older editions of Word. Nevertheless, the user interface may look a little different in earlier versions.

Count your words with the Status Bar.

When you need to get information about how many words are in your file, view the status bar’s data. For a partial character count statistics, pick the words you want to count. To do that, highlight them by using your mouse. The status bar will display the word-count for the selected part as well as for the whole document.

Word-count by using the hotkey combination.

Another fast way to open a pop-up window with Word 365 word-count statistics is a hotkey combination. To do so, press Ctrl + Shift + G on your keyboard.

Unluckily, Word 365 has the same weaknesses in word-count functionality as its earlier versions. The program skips words in different parts of a document, such as comments, running headers, and footers. If you are more demanding on word-count quality, use AnyCount word-count tool.  Try AnyCount absolutely free at the anycount.com/try-free.
