Dear Computer Lady,
I’ve enjoyed your emails for years (first saw you in MIAH WHEN I LIVED IN ME)
Is there any free program that you can use for word processing?
I used to have office but have a new all in one HP PC that has nothing but a trial. I use it seldom so I hate to spend a fortune for a program.
Thank you! Judi
There are several free, open source office programs available, but my favorite (because it opens the most types of files) is LibreOffice at www.libreoffice.org/
Not only will it open and edit your Word files, but it will also open most Microsoft Works documents as well.
It’s Your Turn: What do you think?
