I've just bought a Samsung NP350 laptop with windows 8 and it has been restored to factory settings (I'm going to put anti-virus on it!) and it doesn't have Office installed, in particular Word
I had Word installed on an old P.C. that died, and managed to get a new P.C.(seemingly lacking Word) and using a USB which had my old-P.C. Word docs on it, put my Word docs on the new P.C. so that I can work on them (Just saving to the desktop).
However, this doesn't seem to be possible with my laptop as my USB's docs come up with 'open with/using' on the screen, and Word isn't an option and notepad (which is installed) translates them into rubbish!
Is there a way to put my old Word docs onto my laptop so that I can continue to write to them, or do I have to shell out for MS Office?
Can I connect my new P.C. to the laptop to move them over- though the P.C. uses an old windows version and Win8 is famously non-helpful?
(I don't have any of the original Office discs anymore)
Any suggestions would be great!
Many Thanks in advance!
