Re: Appleworks 6

It appears the application was deleted or has become corrupted. The dock is just a shortcut, but if youre running 10.4 go to  the spotlight search window on the top left, try a search for the application.

Hope this helps.

Also you can try to follow these steps:
    1.Click on Start and then Control Panel. 2.Click on the Programs link.

    Note: If you're viewing the Small icons or Large icons view of Control Panel, you won't see this link. Click on the Default Programs icon and then click on the Associate a file type or protocol with a program link. Then proceed to Step 4.
    3. Click on the Make a file type always open in a specific program link under the Default Programs heading
    4. In the Set Associations window, scroll down the list until you see the file extension that you want to change the default program for.
    5. Click on the file extension to highlight it, once you've found the one you're looking for.
    6. Click the Change program... button above the scroll bar.

    The Open With dialog box should appear.
    7. Look through the options in the Recommended Programs area and choose the application that you want to open the file extension with when you double-click on the particular kind of file on your computer.

    Note: Chances are, the applications listed under Recommended Programs will contain the most applicable programs for this file type but be sure to look at the applications under Other Programs. You may need to click the v to expand the list of these programs.

    Note: Click Browse... to search through your computer for any program not listed that you'd like to use.
    8. Click the OK button on the Open With window. Windows 7 will refresh the list of file associations to show the new default program to open this type of file.

    9. Click the Close button at the bottom of the Set Associations window. You may also close the Control Panel window if it's still open.

    10. From this point forward, when you double-click on any file with this particular file extension, the program you associated it with in Step 7 will launch and load the particular file.

    Important: Whatever program used to automatically open when these types of files were launched will still open these types of files. To use another program, you'll just need to start the program manually and then browse your computer for the particular file.

Using outlook or word with Windows 7 PC, font size will suddenly change. Why? Magnifying glass pops up, unasked, by cursor. Annoying. Why? thanx for any help


It sounds like Windows Magnifier is turned on, which is one of the tools available through the "Ease of Access Center".

To quickly exit the Magnifier (for the time-being), press the Windows key + Esc simultaneously. This key combination toggles the Magnifier on/off. (Windows key has the Windows Logo on it, usually between the left-sided "Ctrl" and "Alt" keys on typical keyboard).

To disable the Magnifier altogether:
Ensure you are logged in as an administrator or user that is a member of administrators group.
Click "Start", then click "Control Panel". Then click a blue & white icon labeled "Ease of Access Center". Look below the initial "Quick access to Common Tools" boxes at top of page, to a section called "Explore all settings". Click on the link "Make the Computer Easier To See", which brings up the section which pertains to the visual display. At the bottom of that page, there is a section labeled "Make things on the screen appear larger, below it a link, then a check box "Turn on Magnifier". Uncheck this box, and ensure nothing else on the page is checked. Click "Apply", then click "OK".

This should turn off the magnifier completely for the system. For future reference, should you ever need the Magnifier tool, you will see a small magnifying glass icon on the taskbar - click that to open the Magnifier toolbar, and you can then set how the magnifier works and where it works, and whether or not it follows mouse movement or is docked. Handy sometimes, as things on some screens can be rather difficult to read when print is especially tiny. If you have the issue of not being able to read icons or their labels on the desktop, or on the system as a whole, you can adjust this by opening "Control Panel" and then "Display" - where you can set the screen text and icon sizes to "small" "medium" or "large" to suit your needs - it's much easier and alot less annoying than Magnifyer can be - just something to keep in mind should you ever need it.

Hope this info helped you! If for some reason you have any additional problems, or get stuck, please come back and let us of luck!

Will appleworks ever become compatible with PC e-mail?

The answer is decidedly no. AppleWorks has not been actively supported for many years.

And I/O error occurred when trying to open an Appleworks doc

That message in Pages means the file is not an AppleWorks 6 file, possibly AppleWorks 5. Are you using the same version? Not all are backward compatible, or require you to have the compatibility pack installed.

My Appleworks icon at the bottom of the screen is missing. I don't know what happened. How do I get it back?

First and easiest solution is to start the program from your application folder. The icon will re-appear in the dock. Now you either CTRL-click on the icon and select "keep in dock" (or simmilar, I'm on german OS) or you drag the icon to a different location in the dock which will also keep it there.

Trying to sort names and info alphabetically. Help menu tells me to go to layout. But, there is no layout menu anywhere that I can see. I've checked all the dropdowns on the menu bar.

This is generic and not specific to Appleworks or Mac - so apologies if it doesn't fully solve your problem.

If you can go to Data/ Sort - Or Edit/ Sort

Does your list have a header?
