    File conversion help!

    Hi

    I created a leaflet on word on my laptop computer (no internet/printer) which I use primarily for creating documents as it has the necessary programs. I need to print it but My Pc Which has internet but no word programs apart from word pad and ms paint. is the only one in the house which is connected to a printer. I can move the file via usb, but because my computer not having the program I originally created it with it messes the format up. I can't find the printer installation cd otheriwse I'd print it from the laptop.

    Is there any way I can convert the word doc into a paint one?

    Thanks

    Try saving it as a bmp?

    Install open office openoffice.org/ - it's free and can open word documents. Print from that.

    If u really want to print from paint which i wouldn't recommend u can just screen capture (print screen) and paste into paint.

    Ok, this may sound overly dumb but I'm not good at this type of stuff so I assume that you mean adding .bmp after the file name I tried that but it didnt work,
    :oops: Am i doing something wrong/?

    Thank you

    Was just wondering why wouldnt you recommend saving from paint?

    Btw. I can't download that program as my laptop has no internet access.

    has your version of word have a save as PDF option ?, if so that will print well
    ifnot you can install a "PDF Printer " where you print from word into a file

    you can get a pdf printer fom here (first one to appear on Google)

    bullzip.com/pro…php

    it will be tiny so download it on the pc with internet onto your memory stick and copy it to the laptop to install, it will then appear as a printer in windows, print to it , it produces a PDF you can copy back and print

    Try downloading word document viewer ( can view, print etc) - free download from Microsoft site

    +1. I was going to suggest that. I use word viewer. Its good. If you need to print pdf you can use 'cute pdf writer'. Free and easy to use.

    download the required programs on to your usb stick and then install them from their on the non-connected pc

    Microsoft office 2010 ]beta is free and seems stable enough to me
