Office Programs

Ever since Microsoft released their first Operating System, Windows 3 they have had a small and basic word program for you to use. Over the years the program has stood the test of time but been somewhat neglected, until the advent of Windows 7. A new interface and buttons for you to play with, WordPad is an excellent choice if you only write the occasional letter.

OpenOffice is a word program that rivals Microsoft’s own Office suite, only Open Office is free. It has the ability to open almost any document format including Microsoft’s own extensions. Looks similar to Microsoft’s interface and is easy to use. You can download it from the internet which won’t take long then save it to a CD for future use.

You can download the latest office application and try it free of charge for 60 days, then purchase it if you want to afterwards. It’s fully unlocked for you to try and is a great way in which to get Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and other applications. I will let you into a secret. After the 60 days is up uninstall it, reboot your computer then re-download it using another email address. You now have a fully working office program FREE to use for another 60 days.
