Thanks! I don't need Publisher anymore. We were going to use it for our skating dress business, but didn't really need it. I got a desktop publishing disk with it and a greeting card thing that I played around with for awhile 20 years ago. I used to make pretty stationery to write letters to relatives in Tucson, but it used up too much ink. I did our brochure completely in word and sent it to a printer. What's that word ..................o.k. - on a zip file that we had at work. I've still got all the real pictures (taken by a real camera). ha haAnother thought. Be careful with the version of Office 365 that you get. The ones with Publisher are subscription services - you pay monthly or annually for access. You can still buy Office 365 outright but it has less in it.
If you want to buy it outright, you need the Home and Student version. That doesn't come with Publisher. But you can get the Personal version if you want Publisher and are okay with paying a monthly/yearly subscription fee.
I don't need Powerpoint either. I never got it for home use. I had enough of that at work. ha ha Just word and excel. I saw Outlook email in a package. Does that come with the home version? I don't really need that either. I've put up with yahoo mail for years now.
Thanks. I'll be checking with the library computer people next week. I can look up "shopping" online. I just want to see it in person or have someone show me what they have at home.@Susan1 , does your town have a public library with computers, or a senior center with same? Your best bet for “take me shopping” help is the library or senior center technology assistant who runs the computer training.
The senior center doesn't have any "experts" at anything farther than looking it up, or computers to use. A few years ago, I couldn't find any Schedule B's for taxes, so I went there (they supposedly help people with their taxes) and I had to find it on the computer to show them what it was. When he printed one out, it had someone else's name and social security number already on it, which I didn't notice till I got home!!! I used white out tape and took it to the library and made copies.
Keep the ideas coming everybody. I really appreciate it!!
