Word count on word


  1. Look at the bottom left corner of the Word window. You should see the word count displayed there.
    • If you don’t see it, you can click on the “Review” tab in the toolbar at the top of the window.
  2. In the “Proofing” group, you’ll find the “Word Count” button. Click on it.
  3. A Word Count dialog box will appear, showing you various statistics about your document, including the number of pages, words, characters (with and without spaces), paragraphs, and lines.
  4. Once you’ve reviewed the word count information, you can either close the dialog box or leave it open while you continue working on your document.
