    Import Word 97 macros into Word 2010?

    I just bought a refurbished laptop and refurbished PC through a program for low-income seniors. They both came with Windows 10 and Office 2010 installed. Up to now I've been using Word 97 on an old PC running Windows XP. Over the years I created a collection of macros in Word 97, and I'm...

    Solved Word 2003: Assign "Home" to Keyboard Shortcut

    Hi Cookiegal! I'm still running Windows 7. Yes, I posted in an MS forum yesterday but so far no one has replied, so I decided to try here since this community has always been so much more responsive. I too was puzzled by that "Question Info" blurb at the end of my post. Apparently it was...

    Solved Word 2003: Assign "Home" to Keyboard Shortcut

    I'm an old guy and back in the 80s I cut my teeth on the CP/M version of WordStar, and I still prefer using its keyboard shortcuts. I'm a clumsy touch typist, and the "Home" key is such a long reach away from the standard keyboard, that I have to look down from the screen to the keyboard each...

    Thanks, TerryNet, for the speedy reply! I've had the two PCs networked for the last four years. And before that I had three machines running Windows XP on a Windows Home Network for ten or so years. I don't a have a password protected account on either machine. Back when all three of my...

    Access Win 7 Desktop from XP PC via Home Network?

    I have a couple of hand-me-down PCs on a Windows Home Network; one runnning Windows XP Pro and the other running Windows 7 Home.

    Solved How to close outlook.live.com email account?

    I'm trying to close an outlook.live.com email account that keeps crashing Thunderbird. But the instructions I found on the web don't match what I see on the outlook.live.com web site. I've tried to upload screenshots to photobucket, but I can't get the upload to work, so I've attached the...

    Solved How to tell if Service Pack 3 for Word 2003 is installed?

    The update installation went smoothly. Thanks for the help on this, Frank. I still have one lingering question though, before I mark this thread as resolved: I've hunted around on my PC trying to find a record showing that the KB3203484 security update for Microsoft Office 2003 was...

    Solved How to tell if Service Pack 3 for Word 2003 is installed?

    Bingo! That did the trick! And it shows SP3 as installed. Thanks for helping me find that info. In re-reading your posts it became clear to me that I had misunderstood what you wrote about the SP3 upgrade for Word being 10 years old. I confused your reference to that "upgrade" with the...

    Solved How to tell if Service Pack 3 for Word 2003 is installed?

    I just looked at the Add orRemove Programs list, and it shows Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003. But, as far as I can tell, I only have Microsoft Word 2003 and Microsoft Excel 2003 installed on this PC. They're the only Office components I ever use, and the only ones which appear on...

    Solved How to tell if Service Pack 3 for Word 2003 is installed?

    This morning when I booted up my old PC running Windows XP and MS Word 2003, I received an automatic update alert for: Security Update for Office 2003 (KB3203484). Since this update alert arrived in the wake of the news of the Petya virus, and is for a really old program, I was suspicious...
