Question about Microsoft Works 8.0 for PC

E-Mailing documents from Microsoft Works 8.0 word processor

I've recently bought a new computer with Windows Vista and Microsoft Works 8.0 pre- installed, and am having a problem with documents. I'm having no luck e-mailing documents, and I think the problem is with the document menu and not the e-mail address. When I go to the "File" menu and click on "Send", nothing happens -- I just stay in the document. There are no error messages -- just nothing happens. Would appreciate any suggestions.

    Thanks so much for your reply, but it didn't solve my problem. Guess I'll have to keep trying.

    I'm using Windows Mail.

First of all I take it you have an email account set up on the new PC and internet connection. Make sure the email program is set to be your default email. Take a look at Control Panel Default Programs Set Your Default Programs Highlight your email program on the left and click set as default Retry sending a document as a email.

    What email program are you using?

  • Christopher Pelotto Aug 25, 2007

    OK go back to control panel and default programs.

    Take a look at the following

    Set program access and computer defaults
    Continue at the dialog box

    Then click the "custom" bullet and then the double down arrowheads to its right

    In the "choose default email program" section make sure Windows Mail is enabled

    And click OK.

    Retry the send in Works

Would like to change the default font size from 10 to 12 in microsoft word processor - Windows Vista.

The defaults are stored in the document template. Edit the template,, make the desired changes and then save it. Make sure you save it as a .dot (template). Now, every time you create a new document it will have the new settings.

After reinstalling windows vista home premium and microsoft works

Pushing the continue button and getting a test page just lets you know the printer is functional. This is a test without having the computer involved. If you can print a test page from the print driver, this lets you know that there is communication between the computer and the printer.

Uninstall your current drivers for the 1700, there are 2 places to look for the drivers, one would be in your all programs list, Dell Printer, uninstall, the other would be in control panel, programs and features, look for the dell printer software there. Once you have this uninstalled, go to device manager while the printer is still attached to your computer. In device manger look for the icon that represents the printer, right click it and then click uninstall. Now detach your printer, close device manager, restart your computer. Next you will boot back to the desktop, attach your printer, if windows recognizes and tries to install the printer, stop/cancel it. Install the printer drivers from the file you downloaded from the Dell support site. Now try printing from your application.

Dell's support site and download the most recent Vista drivers. Here is the link for Vista driver
