I am a long time MS Works user & have many, many data bases, etc., that are vital to my life. I recently upgraded to Windows XP, and discovered that my version of Works, 4.5, wouldn't print under XP, so I upgraded to Works 8. I am very frustrated with its layout. When I start Works, I get the Task Launcher, which shows a jumble of calendars, templates, projects, etc., that I'm not interested in. What I want is to get to my existing Works files. The only way I have found is to select Programs, and start one, for instance the Data Base. Then I can use its File menu, but it will only open .wdb files. To run a .wps file I have to open the Word Processor first. To open a .wks file I have to open the Spreadsheet first. The whole package is a giant step backwards from earlier versions. Is there any way to start Works and go straight to my files?
