PSS ID Number: Q39400 Article last modified on 06-10-1996
|The information in this article applies to:|
|- Microsoft Works for the Macintosh, version 2.0|
In the Finder, you cannot double-click to open a file created in a previous version of Microsoft Works unless the file has first been saved using Works version 2.0.
To resave these files, do the following:
- Remove earlier versions of Microsoft Works from the disk.
- Turn off the computer.
- Restart the computer while holding down the COMMAND and OPTION keys.
- When asked if you want to rebuild the desktop, click OK.
- Start Works version 2.0, then open and save the old documents. (If the Works icon disappears from a file in the Finder, start Works version 2.0 again, and open and resave the file.)
This information is taken directly from the Works version 2.0 “README” file.
