|Looked for the detect and repair|
I don't know where your looking, but I'm talking about the Task Bar at the top of the page.
It should have something like:
FILE - NEW - OPEN - SAVE - PRINT - Etc. Etc. - HELP
Sorry misunderstood. When you said at the bottom, thought you meant at the bottom of Word. Originally looked where you're telling me now to look but it wasn't and still is not there.
Happened to like it that way.
I would advise against it.
I know that you are supposed to be able to run different version at the same time, I tried 2000 & 2007, but had no luck keeping everything separate.
Which doesn't make sense. Why would they give the option of keeping previous versions when installing, if they're just going to override each other anyway.
I would uninstall 2010 if your not going to be using it.
Look here, down the bottom of page: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301
I will, but I barely notice it as it is, as I hardly use it.
And if there is no pressing reason to keep 97 around I would uninstall that also, it is getting a bit "long in the tooth" as it were.
Never did understand why if some program is 'old' it should necessarily be discarded. Isn't it about what the consumer wants? Sounds like it's what Microsoft would obviously love so we keep buying their products.
While there may be no' pressing need', I happen to like Word 97 and want to keep it. There is another reason actually but it's sort of weird, lol, so I won't say.
