Cheap Text Editing
If you need to write a quick memo, give WordPad a try. WordPad is an almost complete word processor--sort of a miniature Word for Windows--and it's free.
For the most part, WordPad acts like Word. If you want to select a word, double-click it. To select an entire paragraph, triple-click.
To select a single line, click once to the left of the line. To select the entire document, press Ctrl-A or hold down Ctrl and click to the left of the text.
WordPad will save files in the .txt, .doc (Word 6), and .rtf formats.
Sorry, no spelling checker. You'll find WordPad in Accessories. Click Start and then choose Programs, Accessories, WordPad.
