Freeware

Don't remember what the Win98 calculator was about but there are many freeware apps readily available. Are you somehow limited in your choices?

Sure you can. It's located in WIN98_44.CAB (or at least it is on my W98SE CD). Extract it and save to a suitable location. You can run it directly from the executable.

This shows the Windows 7 version (on the left) with the W98 version on the right.

Thank you very much, Dwarf, for taking the time to help me, but so far when I look there, all I can find is a calculator help file. Maybe I can get my son on the job here soon. He will probably see what I am missing seeing.

The Windows 7 calculator is a beautiful thing, but I only use scientific notation and such once every 10-to-the-third years or so. To me the Windows 98 calculator makes a simpler visual statement for adding columns of figures and such.

Hi LorettaW,

On the View menu, you can change the windows 7 calculator to standard. This looks like the win 98 version.

Just type CALC in run to open it quickly.

Good luck

Tim

PS: Please note that the attached pictures are as an example only.. I took them on my 2008 Server as i'm not near my Windows 7 box at the moment.

Which version of the W98 disk do you have? The executable might be in different locations according to the version. On mine, which is a W98SE, it is located in the above mentioned location. Yours might be different, especially if it is the original and not SE. You will need to browse the disk. The file you are looking for is calc.exe.
