If you only need to view a document, Free DOC Reader is a perfect choice

Free DOC Reader is a document reader developed by Media Freeware. It is used for viewing Microsoft Word documents. As such, it is only able to open .doc and .docx files. Other text file formats such as .rtf or .txt are not supported. Since the program is only a reader, the documents cannot be edited in it. Free DOC Reader does still have a zoom function that allows users to view the document with more clarity. It also has a Find function which users can use to search for certain words in a document. It doesn’t have a replace function, however. Free DOC Reader’s features and functions are limited, but it’s good at what it’s meant for.

View and print DOC files

With the help of the Free Doc Reader, users can view and print Word documents and MS Excel files without installing MS Office on their systems.

It is a simple tool that basically allows you to see the files which may be in any versions of MS, and is ideal for the older ones. Another feature of this software is that the document can even be converted to the PDF format so as to use it further.
