Is there a small free program that can view MS Word .docs in Windows (xp)? Preferably something small that just can view and print them. I know there is Open Office and others, but they are a big download and do more than I need. I can't find my office cd lol

Thanks.


edit... Nevermind, I found "Word Viewer" from MS, supposedly free.

other than that you can look for abiword which will read MS word, Word Perfect and many other formats as well as save to them.

Viewing a word doc


There's also "Antiword" http://www.winfield.demon.nl/
"Antiword converts the binary files from Word 2, 6, 7, 97, 2000, 2002 and 2003 to plain text and to PostScript."
