Installing Open Office Writer
The software that we are going to be using is called Open Office Writer. Writer is a part of the Open Office Suite. You don’t have to install all of the suite, but if you are in need of the other offerings then this is the way to go.
How to install Open Office Writer
1. Make sure that your setup meets the minimum system requirements. (A Pentium-compatible PC, Microsoft Windows 98, NT, 2000 or XP (2000, ME or XP required for Asian/CJK versions), 64 MB RAM minimum, and 250 MB hard disk space - for Windows. There are also Mac and Linux versions available.)
2. Download the Open Office package. Be sure to get the right version of the software for your system
3.Unzip the downloaded file.
4. Run the installer. You will come to a section that allows you to choose which programs you want to install. You can use this menu to select only Writer if you would like. If you are in need of the full Open Office suite however, you can install the whole package now too.
5. Read any other screens and click "Next" until you reach the last screen. On this screen click "Finish".
