    I have Windows 98 SE. I am getting a new computer with XP. Will the documents I have created using Microsoft Works Word Processor,Notepad and Wordpad open in XP?

    It is based on the filetype. (like ".txt" or ".doc") Wordpad and Notepad will open documents in those formats, and there are other programs that will open them also. I don't have WORKS, but it is possible that it uses a proprietary format and will require WORKS to be on the new system.
