Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Our computer broke and the menders took Microsoft Works off and added Word instead. However we have some old files that are in Microsoft Works format and we need to open them using Word. Help I don't know how to do this.
Greetings, JGregg7937, and welcome to Fixya.com
This is a fairly common and confusing problem. When you open up MSWord and you click open, I'm sure you can't find your files. Well, this is caused because Word, by default, looks for word's own little files. However, the two are very compatible. Click Open, or File>Open if you will, and click the drop down menu that says File Type and click all files (or you can simply type *.* in the file name slot). Go to the directory in which the file is saved and click open.
I hope that worked out for ya and let me know if it didn't.
