...at least on this version of MS Works 8, open the Works Task Launcher, then RIGHT click on the "?" (question mark) in the upper right corner, choose "About Microsoft Works". I'll guess that version 9 is similar.. If it doesn't have a question mark in the upper right corner, click on the 'Help' menu in the upper left, choose "About Microsoft Works".
As to the problem with Work 9, it should be no problem to uninstall it.. Use the "Control Panel/Add-Remove Programs" section to uninstall, then reinstall using the Works 8 disc you currently have.
If you haven't already checked the Works 9 support center, there are a few suggestions there that might answer your questions. See the link below:
Hope this helps.
I have used Works for many years and like it very much for my limited purposes. Up to now, I have been using Works 8. I recently had my computer reformatted and he installed Works 9.
It worked for a while but now it's gone crazy. When I start a document and try to insert something into it using copy/paste, or using Yankee Clipper, when I click to paste the whole document disapprears, including whatever I had composed myself in the document, and in fact when I use Yankee Clipper the text I have copied in to Yankee Clipper disappears.
So I want to get rid of the current Works program I have and reinstall Works from the Works 8 disk that I have.
I'm just checking to see if anyone has a comment about what I am doing. I don't suppose I can remedy the Works 9 problem but maybe someone knows something I don't, which for sure is a certainty. I don't have the disk the tech used when he installed in after the reformat.
By the way, how do I determine what version of Works in on my computer?
