Microsoft Word 2010 Document Shouldn't Be so Large

Posted on 2014-09-02
Last Modified: 2014-09-17
I have a MS Word Document that has 18 pages and a few images. The size in it's properties say the document is 62 MB but that seems too much.

Is there anyway I can determine if there is some type of issue with the document if I think the size it says it is, is incorrect?

    You need to see what size the images are, regardless of how many pages it depends on the sizing of the images.

    Where are these images coming from?

    A thing to also check is if you right click on the images and save as picture, save them to like your desktop, right click on the image and see the size of each image and you can determine if it is correct

    Hope this helps

    You can also select a picture in the document and under format-adjust select compress pictures to minimize their size.
