Sending Faxes and Configuring OpenOffice.org for Faxing
To send a fax directly from OpenOffice.org, you need a fax modem and a fax driver that allows applications to communicate with the fax modem.
Sending a Fax Through the Print Dialog
1. Open the Print dialog by choosing File - Print and select the fax driver in the Name list box.
2. Clicking OK opens the dialog for your fax driver, where you can select the fax recipient.



Configuring OpenOffice.org a Fax Icon
You can configure OpenOffice.org so that a single click on an icon automatically sends the current document as a fax:
1. Choose Tools - Options - OpenOffice.org Writer - Print.
2. Select the fax driver from the Fax list box and click OK.
3. Click the arrow icon at the end of the Standard bar. In the drop-down menu, choose Customize.
The Toolbars tab page of the Customize dialog appears.
4. Click Add Commands.
5. Select the “Documents” category, then select the “Send Default Fax” command.
6. Click Add and then Close.
7. On the Toolbars tab page, click the down arrow button to position the new icon where you want it. Click OK.
Your Standard bar now has a new icon to send the current document as a fax.

I don'thave word processor


Windows does come with a baisc word processor, called Wordpad, and you find it "all programs/accessories" but it is quite limited in what it can do. (Notepad is another program, but it's even more limited).
Microsoft Word is usually sold as part of an office suite (a collection of programs), but it's almost never sold with a PC unless you pay extra for it, or if you buy it pre-installed. If you are a college student, be sure to check out the MS Ultimate Steal. Current prices are under $100.

A good free option is to use OpenOffice. This is a free program, available for you to use, and you can download it from openoffice.org. Once it's installed, it works much like the MS version of Word, and you can print, edit, and copy text with ease. This is a great budget option, and works very well if you prefer the free option.

How can i get the microsoft office to my computer without using the cd to install it?


Hi there!
So, do you have MS office software somewhere? MS Office is paid software can purchase from computer retails shop or online. You get the software first. We can copy software to USB, external hard disk or use network shared folder and connect to computer and install MS office from there.
If you don't have MS Office software and don't have money to paid for it, you can try to use OpenOffice in www.openoffice.org which is free of charge. This software is exactly same MS office and compatible to use between them two.
Hope this will help. Thanks for reading.

How do i install Microsoft word 2003 on my computer from the web ?


Unless you can find a seller on eBay or Craig's List that will sell you a genuine copy of Microsoft Office 2003, including a genuine product-key, there is no way to do so.

Instead, download the _free_ Open Office software, from www.OpenOffice.org
and install it, because it can read and write documents formatted by Word 2003.

I didn't install openoffice in linux5.3. Plz send article or installation process for guide.


Installation Steps The following steps assume you want to install OpenOffice on a multi-user Linux setup in an area accessible to all users on your system. This is referred to as a "network" or "multi-user" setup. Additionally you may install OpenOffice in a "single-user" setup. Consult details in the User Setup Guide (a pdf file) included with the installation archive for further details. These instructions assume you are using some X11 window manager to perform the actual installation. The setup is an X application.
  1. Make sure you are root
  2. Download the tarball from OpenOffice.org (the download can be done from any user account and then moved), and extract the tarball (.tar.gz file) to a temporary directory.
    "/tmp" is a good place for example. For the purpose of this example, I will assume you have downloaded the tarball to your /tmp directory.
  3. Open a terminal, such as xterm or konsole.
    To extract the tarball, change to the /tmp directory: cd /tmp
    and extract the tarball: "tar -zxvf [tarball name]".
  4. This should create a directory "OOo_1.1x_LinuxIntel_install".
    ("x" in this sense is a suffix to version 1.1 that will depend on the version you downloaded.)
  5. Change into this directory: "cd OOo_1.1x_LinuxIntel_install".
  6. Execute the setup script for a "network" installation.
    This is done with the following command: "./setup -net"
    This is a friendly installation process which will prompt you for a destination directory and other OpenOffice installation options. When the setup is finished, you should have a complete "network" installation installed in the destination directory you specified. Tips on installing OpenOffice.org with an NFS setup can be found on our nfs tips page. Note: It is NOT advisable to install over an existing OpenOffice installation. If you want to use the same destination as an existing version of OpenOffice, delete the contents of the existing directory!
  7. Part of the installation process includes telling OpenOffice about your Java installation. Normally this can be automatically found or you may need to supply it, or install the JRE supplied with OpenOffice if you don't already have it installed. (But see Prerequisites for more control over this.)
  8. Each user on your system should then execute the user-setup for OpenOffice.org.
    To do so, login as a regular user, then change into the program directory where you installed OpenOffice.org:
    "cd /opt/OpenOffice.org1.1.0", for example
    and execute the following command:
    "./setup"
    The user portion of setup will now execute. Tell setup to perform a Workstation installation (should copy about 1.4 MB of files to your home directory) and typically let it default to the directory it recommends for storage of the local files in your user directory.
    Example: "/home/billg/OpenOffice.org1.1.0"
    Follow the instructions and fill in your contact details. If your users have been previously running an older version of OpenOffice, they should delete the current version of ".sversionrc" before starting up the newly installed version. This will reinitialize the version information for the new setup.
  9. That's it! If you use GNOME or KDE (provided your distro keeps the KDE user files in ~/.kde2), you will find that OpenOffice.org is fully integrated in your environment. If you use a different Windowmanager, you can start OpenOffice.org by typing ~/OpenOffice.org1.1.0/soffice
  10. You may remove the install files in /tmp, if you are done installing. (thanks to Henrik Eismark for pointing this out)
Have Fun!

What is a free product key to get the full version to microsoft office home and student 2010? or where/how can i get one?


there is no such thing as a free product key for MS Office. you have to buy a legit copy to get one. i would not suggest that you use a pirated copy. but if you are looking for something for free, why not try OpenOffice? its free and works just like MS Office. You can download it from www.openoffice.org.

cheers!

Hey, I'm trying to work on a power point for a class but when i open it, it asks me for a 25 character product key and i need help i threw away the box months ago... if so i will be highly appreciated...


An alternative workaround to allow you to work on the Powerpoint presentation in the meantime would be to download a copy of OpenOffice. This is a free suite of "office" applications which are all compatible with their Microsoft equivalents. After you've installed OpenOffice you can open your Powerpoint presentation, edit it and save it and the original file format will be preserved. You can find OpenOffice at:
