From your question it seems you haven't installed MS Office (MS Word is part of this package). Installation of Windows XP doesn't contain Office suite.

Our MS Word here in our computer was lost. I can't find it anymore. I can't do my assignments because I need to use MS Word. I don't know whether it was removed or replaced.

Provided MS word has not been un-installed.
You may be missing just the icons.

You can use the built in search and look for MSWORD.exe
If memory serves me this is the file name of the executable.

Have you tried simply opening another word document from explorer?
If MS Word has not been un-installed the program should start right up.

Everything Displays both files and directories.
Pleasure to work with and highly recommend especially for lost files.

Excellent alternate to MS word is OpenOffice Best of no cost and includes a full office package. And yes converts from and too MS office file formats.

Hope this helps

I did not have it on my laptop and i cannot affort it sometime i want to type out something and i cannot do it.

Windows comes with two programs built in that let you type. Notepad is a very basic text editor without formatting. WordPad is a very basic word processing program with a few formatting features. Both of these might give you what you need if you just want something simple.

As an alternative to MS Office, you can download and install OpenOffice absolutely free. OpenOffice gives the features of Microsoft Office (word processing, database, spreadsheet, presentation and graphics), but doesn't cost anything. It can also read and edit MS docx format files, and can create pdf files. If you want to do some serious work but don't want to pay Microsoft, OO is what you need.

My files from ms word 2007 won't work on other PC using xp operating system

It may be just that they have an older version of MS Office, try downloading and installing the Microsoft office compatibility package, its free


If the url doesn't work just google
Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack.

If that doesn't work, don't pay MS anymore money. Go to download and install "Open Office" its also free and you can read and write MS office compatible docs.

How to open msword w/ a key?


You can not run any MS Office programs without the key. And let me also inform you that each copy of the Office Suite has it own unique key. Meaning that even if I were to share mine with you, it will still not work. If it worked then MS would starve.

But that should not mean that we cant help you do your work. We can. Download Open Office Suite from free and install on your PC/laptop. Besides being free it is also fully compatible with MS Office. You can create, edit and save any MS Office file. So, cheer up and start using it.

You won't lose the data files, but you bring up a good point. I would use Word Pad and try opening a couple of the files. If they open correctly, you'll be safe to uninstall MS Office.

If it doesn't open, try to convert them to a simple text file or a .rtf file in MS Office by opening them and choosing Save As and save them that way.
