Using MS Office and LibreOffice

Dear Computer Lady,

Every email from you is highly enlightening to us.

Hearing the news from you that Libre can open Microsoft Office Works file, which Microsoft Office even cannot, I have an inclination to know whether we can use Libre Office, along with Microsoft Office.

Kindly enlighten me.
With Respectful Regards, Radhakrishnan

Dear Radhakrishnan,

Yes, you can install and use LibreOffice on your computer even if you have Microsoft Office installed on your computer.

Simply open the program you want to use, then use the file menu to open the file you want to work on.

You should be able to use LibreOffice to open your Works files, then save them in a format that will work with Microsoft Office as well.
