Looking for info on Word 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • What happened to the Newsgroups...Is this the next generation??

    Anyway, I have upgraded to Word 2007.  When using Word 2003, I could right-click on a word and I had the option to "Define" which would open Microsoft Bookshelf.

    After the upgrade, this option disappeared.  If I reinstall Bookshelf 2000, will this option reappear?

    Thanks,

    Some newsgroups are still around but Microsoft will eventually
    transition them to the forums as well. Most of the larger ISPs have
    abandoned usenet servers, supposedly to limit the distribution of child
    ____. (IMHO, it was more about economics than the betterment of society)

    You can still find Microsoft's newsgroups through Microsoft's own news
    server, msnews.microsoft.com. You can also access the forums from a news
    reader using an NNTP bridge available at

  • In deed, the office forums are already created.
