Hi Mo Et Al,

Sorry folks.

Confucious say: Put brain in gear before approaching keyboard.

Yes it isWindows 10 I wish to upgrade to before the end of the year. And 
Andrew points out that Office 2010 (which I already have) has support ending 
next year, and I use JAWS 18.

Must sign off now, the men in the white coats are breaking down the door.


Jim Williams.
