How to Burn Microsoft Word to CD

by Jason Candanedo

Microsoft Word is a word processing program from Microsoft. Documents generated from Microsoft Word are referred to as "Word" documents. These "Word" files can be placed on a CD disc, in the process known as "burning." CD discs' large capacity make them ideal for storage.


Insert a blank CD-RW disc into the CD burning drive of your computer.


Click on the "Start" button located on your desktop, and click on the "My Computer" icon.


Find the Microsoft Word document and click once on it to select and highlight the file.


Click "Copy this File" in the "File and Folder Tasks" category section.


Click on your CD burning drive that is displayed in the dialog box.


Create and type a title for the CD in the "Burn a Disc" window. Click on the "Next" button. The burning process will begin. Your Microsoft Word document will be burned
