Brief History –
Microsoft word was first released in 1983 as a Multi-Tool Word. Its first version was mainly based on the framework of Bravo which was the world’s first graphical writing program.
Microsoft renamed its Multi Tool Word to Microsoft Word, and then in October 1983, Microsoft released its first version for then popular IBM PCs.
In 1985, Microsoft ported it to the Macintosh for the first time which was a little different from its DOS-based counterpart, i.e. Macintosh offered various major interface changes.
In 1989, Microsoft released another new version of Word for its Windows operating systems. It was the Microsoft Word who first introduced the concept of WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get), i.e. it allowed us to create and display bold and italics text.
In 2014, Microsoft developed the source code for its Microsoft Word for Windows 1.1a.
