Microsoft Publisher 95 (3.0)

Publisher is a desktop publishing tool from Microsoft geared towards ease of use with the home user. Microsoft publisher can be used to created professional looking newsletters, flyers, forms, and more. It includes guides and wizards that walk users through creation of common document types, while still offering powerful flexibility.

Desktop publishing programs support very detailed layout, exact color matching, and other advanced features that are not usually present in word processors. As such, Microsoft Publisher did not compete against Microsoft Word, but rather complemented its functionality.

Publisher was part of the Microsoft solution series that also included Microsoft Works and Microsoft Money.
