There are times when you urgently need to open word files in doc or docx format on such computers. In such a case you cannot download MS Word even when office comes for 30 days trail as it is a heavy download and it wont be that quick.
We had talked about some softwares like word viewer and word reader both of these little applications are very light as compared to download and comes handy when you don’t have word installed on the computer where you need to open files.
TextMaker Viewer is a free to use word document viewer which allows you to open, view, and print documents created with Microsoft Word 6.0 to 2007, TextMaker as well as OpenDocument and other common office file formats.
When you install this software, it will ask you during the setup to which files types you would like it to be associated to and also have the option checked by default in which it will add this program under open with in right click context menu.
Once the installation is complete, you will see the message box saying TextMaker successfully installed as shown below.
In all this seems to be nice alternative to slow word reader, with some pretty options, tabbed interface and support to open and view docx files. We hope you find this little software for viewing documents as it lighter and faster than word viewer.
