Program For Writing Letters

Dear Computer Lady,

One thing I don’t like about windows 8.

It does NOT have the program for writing letters and etc. Was it the Word Perfect program… I have forgotten in my old age. I am almost 79 now… ouch.

Thanks again for your helpful newsletter,

Dear Evelyn,

Windows 8 does come with a program that you can use to write letters, it is called, WordPad.

To open WordPad in Windows 8, just tap the windows logo key on the keyboard, and type, WordPad without a space between the words.

You will see a search box on the right side of your screen, and WordPad will be listed under the search box. Click on it to open the program.

You will now be able to type and save your letters.
