Leaving XP Pro for Windows 8

  1. #31

    I didn't say not to install Office 2007, that's up to you whether you want it or not. If you want to use Outlook instead of Windows Live Mail or LiveMail then you do need Office.

    LiveMail is not the same as Windows Live Mail, which is part of Windows Essentials which has Mail, OneDrive and Writer. When I install it, I install only Mail as I didn't want the other stuff.

    I don't know anything about LiveMail that is in Windows 8.1 as I've never used it. I don't use any of the Modern apps. I have installed Start8 or Classic Shell and disable the hot corners so the only way to get to the Modern Start Screen is via Windows key + C. I boot directly to the Desktop and run Windows 8/8.1 just like Windows 7.

    Windows XP Pro

    Thankks for your clarification. Glad I asked. So now I know when I ask my tech guy to build the new machine, to install Office 2007. I appreciate it it.
