Opening docs
by: Jennifer

Hello Larry,
To open a document you will need to have Microsoft office installed on your computer if it is a document. If it is a pdf. you might need to install a pdf reader. click on this link. https://get.adobe.com/reader/ uncheck the google chrome box and click the install button. This will download the file. Depending on what browser you are using click find the download, it may be up in the right hand corner or at the bottom (this depends on your browser) If you can't find a button on your browser that says open go to your downloads folder and the adobe file should be there. open the file and follow the wizard to install. It may require your computer to reboot before it allows you to open your files.

If you need more help please let me know.
Jennifer
