Hi my name is Dave Andrews and today I'm going to show you how to get Microsoft Word for free. Let's go to our computer. What we are going to do is we are going to download either a trial version of Word that you can use for free for 60 days or we can get what is called a Word Viewer that will allow you to view Word Documents and print them out. You can view Word Documents that people send to you or that you download you are just not able to change them with the Word Viewer. So let's start with the trial version and let's go to our Start Menu here and we are going to go to the internet and let's just go to Now we are going to search for Word Trial Version. Now one of the very first hits that it returned was a Microsoft Office Products page. Let's click there and then on their web page we will see the free Office 2007 trial. Just click on that and you have the option to download the free trial of Microsoft Office 2007. Just click on download and then choose English and download now. Now Microsoft is going to send you a trial key code and in order to do that you have to give them your name and the your e-mail address. Just fill that out and then in your e-mail you have received a key code from Microsoft and then it will automatically take you to the download link of the trial version. Once you get that installed just enter your trial key code and you will be able to use Microsoft Office for 60 days for free. The next thing I'm going to show you is how to get the Word Viewer. Just go to again and we are going to search for Word Viewer. Now usually one of the very first hits it will return is the download for Word Viewer. Scroll down until you see download and click on that and it will automatically start downloading the Word Viewer. Luckily it is a very quick install. You basically will just accept this license agreement and then click next all the way through and then you will have a program on your computer that will allow you to view Word Documents but not edit them. That one does not have a limit and you can use that one forever. My name is Dave Andrews and I have just showed you how to get Microsoft Word for free.
