Notepad to MS Reader

by Hillstrider72 / May 15, 2009 11:18 PM PDT

Is there a technique I can use to move text from Notepad to my MS Reader? The Notepad text is from a Torrent audio book.
I'm using Windows XP SP3.

From http://www.microsoft.com/reader/info/support/faq/general.aspx#1:
"Also, people can easily create their own eBooks using tools that are available for free from our Web site."

Now go and find those tools and see if one of those allows you to either import a .txt file or supports pasting text from the clipboard into the eBook you're creating. Any indirect way, such as opening the text file in MS Word or OO Writer, converting it to .pdf and using that to fill your eBook would be fine also.

This all looks very promising.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
