sending a document by email
You can share your documents with other Word users in several
ways, and one of those ways is to send a copy of a document
file by email. If you have an email program on your computer,
you can send an open Word 2013 document as an attachment
to a message directly from the Backstage view. You can send
the document as an editable Word file, a PDF file, or an XPS file.
