Hello I've had a new pc delivered today on which windows 7 is installed (I'm familiar with xp) I can see that there are quite a few changes some which seem very user friendly, however, with xp you could just go into programmes/ mircosoft office and all the icons where there for word, access, excel etc and you could save them to your desktop as a short cut. Can you tell me where I will find these as upto now I have only found something called wordpad which I have 'pinned' to my task bar. But can't find anything for databases or spreadsheets. Can you advise me please
regards Lynda,

These programs have to be purchased individually or as a Suite. The current Suite is OFFICE 2010, The Home Office Student Suite comes with Excel, MS Word Micro$oft Office may have came bundled as part of your XP computer it certainly was not part of the XP OS
Here are the various flavors of the 2010 Suite

If you still have the original installation disks for your previous XP Microsoft Office, you could try and install it in Windows 7. 2007 should install OK.
Otherwise you can download Open Office, which is free and has similar functions.
