    Works 2000-manual

    Works 2000 is pre-installed in computer...also has acrobat reader 4.0 installed. I have reader 5.0 from a different software program. I can't access the manual for using Works2000 using reader 5.0...I can't even find the manual anywhere in any of my directories.
    Need suggestions..would like to read this thing so I can learn to use Works2000. TIA

    a bunch of stuff that doesn't mention Works2000 at all.
    What am I supposed to look for?

    Help files.
    I would expect there to be a higher chance of you having .hlp files for Works than .pdf files.
    If you open any Works application, what choices are you offered from Help?

    Assuming it was an OEM installation, where does the supplier say your manual is?

    Assuming it is a standard MS product, why are you expecting a manual in the first place?

    <img src=/S/fanfare.gif border=0 alt=fanfare width=31 height=23> Found her manual...I printed it out.
    Just read thru it...oh well...waste of time...doesn't tell me how to use Word.
    Any suggestions on where to find free tutorial on getting started in using Word? <img src=/S/help.gif border=0 alt=help width=23 height=15>
    Have never used the Word processor at all...in my OS for over a year. <img src=/S/frown.gif border=0 alt=frown width=15 height=15>
    Oh yes..was OEM installed.

    The third site offered when I searched - <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.tutorialusa.com/new/word-tutorial.html>http://www.tutorialusa.com/new/word-tutorial.html</A> - offers 'FREE Online Courses'. I don't really think you can get cheaper than that.

    Try <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.freetutorials.com/>http://www.freetutorials.com/</A>

    Re: Works 2000-manual

    I did check it out..I guess what I need is more of a video-type tutorial...printed stuff doesn't tell me much.
    Thanks anyway. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    Re: Works 2000-manual

    You're not going to find that sort of thing for free...

    There are several great text-type tutorials out there that really take you through the paces, the rule of thumb is, if you're lost by the second or third paragraph, find another.

    Google will give you literally hundereds of sites, Dogpile will too, find something you like, commit to it, and teach yourself! You'll be glad you did. <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>

    Re: Works 2000-manual

    <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> Thanx...just so frustrating! I really don't even know why I want to learn this stuff...daughter uses her Works for all kinds of things - but of course, her stuff she uses it for I have no use at all. Have read all the things one can do with Works 2000 and have deleted 97% of it.
    Sooo..what is Word actually good for? Documents..what else? Don't have a single item to be saved to be put in document-form.

    <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15> If you don't need documents, then maybe it's not for you, I use it daily, but then, that's for Documents...

    Say you wanted to write a book, or type out recipes, or make signs for your garden, or anything else you can put on paper, you'd use Word for it. If you want to learn it, there's lots out there to help ya out, but if you'll never use it... that's different.

    Re: Works 2000-manual

    <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> Thanks..guess that solves my problem.
    I don't have any use for it...I just use notepad if I want to re-type something...then I print it out or send it via email...other than that...Works2000 just takes up space on computer.
    Thanks to all that replied..sorry to be such as PIA (another smilie needed).
