Why doesn't Vista track changes?
Hi,
I'm new to the forum. My old computer with Windows XP blew up last week and the new computer arrived with Windows Vista. After days of incompatability problems, I just discovered I cannot track changes on a document. Given that I am a writer, this is a problem. Can anyone tell me if this is fixable?
Many thanks,

Iris2007

I eventually figured it out. VISTA Home Premium does not track changes. I had to buy Windows Student and Office software to get the tracking software. VISTA has been a huge hassle for me. I finally worked out all the compatability issues but I have to safe every document TWICE (in wps and then again in an older version of Windows) because my clients do not have VISTA and cannot open WPS docs on older versions of Windows. It is inconvenient and stunning to me that a NEW version of Windows would be incompatible with older versions. I understand this is how Microsoft makes money but ...
