Windows 7: Mouse isn't scrolling in "Word for Windows 95" !

29 Jun 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Mouse isn't scrolling in "Word for Windows 95" !

Under "Windows 7" I can no longer scroll through documents while using "Word for Windows 95".

Does anybody know of a way to fix this?

Everything else in "Word for Windows 95" works brilliantly, just as it always has.

The easy answer is for me to use a more recent version of Word. However, all of my documents, going right back to 1995, are in "Word for Windows 95" format and the fact is that while "WordStarter 10" and "Open Office" and other recent word-processing programs will OPEN "Word for Windows 95" documents, they will NOT save them in that format - although some of these more recent programs claim that they do. They just don't. And I don't want to end up with half of my documents being unopenable in "Word for Windows 95", causing me to have to play hit-and-miss every time I go to open a document.

Added to that, "Word for Windows 95" is a very powerful program that works rapidly, is light on resource, and which I can use like grease-lightning. I refuse to be forced by Microsoft to have to learn all the ins and outs of the latest versions.

If I have to put up with no scroll-function in "Word for Windows 95" then I will.

But hopefully someone will know how to get round this problem.
