On Microsoft Word, you can now send documents to any Amazon Kindle device or app, and in this guide, you will learn how. In addition to books, Kindle users can now read documents from Microsoft Word on any device or app. The option is available from the “Export” feature on the word processing app for Windows 11, 10, and macOS.

The feature provides two options, including “Like a Kindle book” or “Like a printed document.” The “Like a Kindle boot” option allows you to adjust font sizes and page layouts and is best suited for text with more straightforward formatting and reading on smaller screens. It also supports handwritten sticky notes with Kindle Scribe.

On the other hand, the “Like a printed document” option keeps page layouts and formatting as-is and is best suited for text with more complex formatting and elements like embedded tables. It also supports writing directly on the page with Kindle Scribe.

This guide will teach you the easy steps to send Word documents from your Windows 11 computer to a Kindle app or device.
