Microsoft Works may not have all the bells and whistles that Microsoft Office offers, but you can perform many useful tasks with this highly affordable suite of applications. You can use the MS Works Word Processor to create and print address labels, nametags, file folder labels and more. You can use standard labels, create your own custom sizes or perform a mail merge from a list of names and addresses.
