The Status Bar

The Status Bar, located at the bottom of Word, shows basic information about your document and enables you to change your viewing settings. Specific items on the Status Bar include:

  1. Document information (page number and word count).
  2. Proofing status. If you see a green check, Word found no errors. A red X indicates Word has found spelling or grammatical errors in the document.
  3. View controls. You can choose from a selection of views (Print Layout, Full Screen Reading, Web Layout, Outline, and Draft).
  4. Zoom control. You can zoom in or out, to make the document bigger or smaller, based on your personal preference. Zooming changes the size of what you're viewing. It does not change what you actually print out.
