Create a memo

Creating a memo in Word is as easy as opening a memo template and starting to type. Just browse the featured memo templates and click to download the one you like. Then, edit, save, print, or share as you would any Word document.

Tips for memos

  • To emphasize key points or to organize the memo into different sections, use headings. For more information, see Add a heading.

  • If it’s an urgent memo, you can add color for emphasis, like making the subject line red. (If the memo template already has a lot of red text, change some of it to Black or Automatic, so only the urgent parts are red.)

  • Draw attention to some of the text by making it bigger.

  • To change the look of the whole memo, choose a different style set or theme:

    • In Word 2016 and Word 2013, click the Design tab to see all the choices.

    • In Word 2010 and Word 2007, click Page Layout > Themes.
