Office suite

Application software refers to programs that perform specific tasks for end users, such as games, word processors, spreadsheets, and image processing software.

An office suite is a collection of office productivity applications that are bundled together. They allow you to carry out common tasks and usually include a word processor, a spreadsheet, and a presentation program.

Word processors, such as Microsoft Word or LibreOffice Writer, are programs that enable you to create and format text documents. Spreadsheet applications (spreadsheets for short), like Microsoft Excel or LibreOffice Calc, are computer programs that let you store, organise, and analyse numerical data. They also provide a visual representation of data through charts and graphs.

A presentation program, such as Microsoft PowerPoint and OpenOffice Impress, is a program used to display information in the form of a slide show. They allow its users to insert formatted text, images, videos, tables, charts, sound, etc. and arrange everything into a slide show presentation.
