|re: However, I can't find "TOOLS" as easily with Windows 7 as I could with XP.|
You appear to be mixing apples and oranges. More specifically, you are mixing Operating Systems and Applications.
What I assume you mean is:
"I can't find "TOOLS" as easily with Microsoft Word 2007 as I could with the previous version of Word that I was using."
In other words, whether you are using Windows 7 or Windows XP as your operating system will not impact where Tools will be found within the Microsoft Word 2007 application.
Many of the items that were found under Tools in previous versions of Word have been moved to different locations within Word 2007. What exactly are you looking for?
