Word Documents
Just a stupid question. I do not have Microsoft Word, but my colleague had
sent me their pirctured documents in Word (.DOC) version, it that any way to
read these documents other than purchase a brand new Microsoft Word?

Thank you.

Yes. Download and install the free Microsoft Word viewer at
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

or http://tinyurl.com/5ye9c


Note that that will let you open and read Word .doc files, but not let
you create or edit them.

Re: Word Documents
My friend installed openoffice which solved all her "word" problems. Staples
have an offer for word office home and student with a free flash drive if you
really need word.
