In my switch from Windows 7 to 10 I lost MS Word and I really need it.  Tried to adjust to Open Writer, but it doesn't work for my specific application.

 

I do not want to pay for a new MS Word at this time.

The MS Word is preinstalled on your computer or you install it by yourself? If you install yourself you should have the key.

 

If you haven't delete the Windows.old folder, check to see if it is inside the folder.

Go to this website, enter your Office 2010 key, language and complete the verification. Download the installation files and install MS Office.

After the download complete, run the setup.exe and follow the instruction to install it. After that you should be able to run it from the start menu.

It did NOT show Canada as location, so stayed with the United States anyway.  Hope that does not affect download....which is happening now.  The download takes 2 hours, but seems to moving faster than time itself:)

Thanks for you help.

My wife is 75 and does not do well with change.  She gets very frustrated on our laptop which has Office 2010.  Her computer is running Win 7 Pro because the pro version is the only one that will still run Office 2000.  Does anyone know if - when the dreaded day arrives that we have to upgrade her to Windows 10 - Office 2000 (at least Word) will run on a Win 10 machine?

fishcad,

 

          There is no "dreaded day" where you must upgrade to Windows 10.  There are people out there still running WinXP, and Win95/98.

 

           If this is a home machine and your biggest goal is "keeping things the same" then I'd advise you to do several things:

 

1.  Do a search on these forums on uninstalling the Windows Update(s) related to GWX [Get Windows X (10)] and uninstall them.  That or know that you can simply answer "No" to the occasional nag you get from GWX to upgrade to Win10 when it pops up.

 

2.  Keep an eye out on this forum over time to see if anything else pops up as far as GWX (or some future variant thereof) that you might want to prevent installing.

 

           Official support for Windows 7 is already over and extended support will end in 2020, but if you're not relying on Microsoft to help you with Windows 7, and I know few people who are, that's irrelevant.   As time goes by your computer will become more vulnerable to certain security issues once Microsoft actually stops issuing Windows Updates related to Windows 7, but if you keep a good antivirus/antimalware suite installed and running that should protect you from almost anything that comes up.

 

            A number of my clients are seniors and I tell all of them that a tectonic shift in the Windows interface occurred with the advent of Windows 8 and it continues into Windows 10, even though a number of things, e.g., the start menu, that were removed in Windows 8 have been reintroduced in Windows 10.  If your biggest concern is a personal learning curve and a personal comfort level then you absolutely should not upgrade to Windows 8 or Windows 10.
