    The Discussion

      Neat idea. This should be built-in to Office and come up the first time you run Word. I think it would show people just how many things you can do in Word with just a couple of clicks.

      I remember I took a typing class - this was awhile ago as we were using Word 2002, at the time I was pretty good at it , but I have lost the knowledge of just about everything I learned about Word, and I still use it a lot. I like this though for free - I will download it and hopefully helps me out a little.

      so bottom line :what about language supports?

      Has anyone figured out how to run this thing as a standard user?  I want some of the people in the office to be able to use it, but there's no way to get it to show up without being admin.  What's up with that?
