How to Create a New Document

Posted by blueheron (My Page) on

I have an HP laptop computer with Windows. I just wrote up the notes for a meeting and I don't know how to email them to the committee chairman. I used Notepad to write the notes, but it won't let me attach them to an email. The buttons for copy and paste are pale.

I printed them out, but the left margins aren't aligned and I don't know how to align them. It makes them hard to read. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I use Microsoft Office Word without a problem. Never have used Notepad.

If you don't have MS Office Word, use Wordpad. If you'd like to try a free office suite, try Libre Office or Open Office.

If you do not have Office with Word, give Wordpad a try.

From WordPad you might want to Save as.... Rich Text Format .rtf file.
Then anybody on any computer or phone or whatever should be able to read it easy..

I have it on Wordpad but don't see the Save as option...

SAVE AS should be under the FILE menu. If it isn't, something is definitely wrong.

I tried to email it and got an error message again.

I found out to email the Notepad document:

On the Notepad document, hit the Select All button which highlights it, then the Copy, then open your email and hit Paste and there it is! Not complicated, but so difficult to get answers to simple questions!

If it's an important document I would attach it in the email and not just copy and paste it but that is just what I prefer with sending important stuff. Mary
