    When I switched to Win 10 from 7, the template that contains Microsoft Word, brochures and other templates all worked fine. I had some trouble and had to re=install Win 10 and was told all my other work would be saved.

    Most of it was, but had to re-install sever things, but mainly I have no access to Word, or the brochures and other things offered. I forget what it was called, but it offered several templates to use and I don't know how to install it as it appears MS wants to sell it to me when it came with my computer.

    Thanks, hope this is the right forum.

    Personal opinion only :
    While MS Office is preferable, under your circumstances, LibreOffice may be the correct way to go.

    Did you try full remove of Office Applications including registry and new install?

    Thanks for reply, i never had office, i had word and several other templates it came with (brochures, cards, resumes etc) installed--no disk, just installed on Win 7. First time installed 10, it worked. had to restore 10 at least 7 more times, and from second time on, it has not appeared anywhere i can find it.

    When i used restore, it promised EVERYTHING, that came installed on my computer would be saved for me. just another great service from Windows 10, which has crashed constantly. Had to update audio drivers recently, and that action left me with no internet connection for the 7th time. i am so sick of 10 causing problems after problems , with me having to redo all the programs--like Chrome, all my email addresses, all my malware, etc again again and again.

    But thanks for trying to help. Still trying to find where the word and its templates are hiding, must be somewhere in one of my folders.

    Thanks again, mishkyn
