........install free software

Good morning G2G peeps,
Have a software question. I have the original Trial Microsoft Office on my lappy (Windows Vista) that was used for my grand when she did virtual school. Now it is needed for her younger sister and she needs to be able to print and/or C/P from it. The trial doesn't allow that without the drawn out process of doing a Screen shot.( the trial expired of course) I know there are free productivity software compatible with Microsoft excel,power point and word. My questions are:
  • Do I remove the trial off before installing the freebee?
  • If I remove the trial will I loose what has been logged in it? If so how do I save/transfer it?( I have a Seagate HD)
  • Do have any recommendations on some safe but free software?

Thank you in advance.

Open Office is free and works well. http://www.openoffice.org/download/

I actually prefer it to the new format that Office started using in 2007.

You can leave Office 2007 on there, just let Open office take over.

Same thing for LibreOffice: rather similar to OpenOffice.

I can recommend it, works for me for the last three years: https://www.libreoffice.org
