How can I get my Works Calendar back?

Episode 1682 (41:15)

Suzie from Los Angeles, CA
Microsoft Works

Suzie uninstalled Microsoft Works from her old laptop recently and wants to know if she can reinstall it. Leo says that Microsoft stopped making Works in 2009. Without the installer, you're kind of out of luck. But there are other tools you can use in its place: ZoHo Office, LibreOffice, Microsoft Office on the web, Google Docs, all free. Suzie only really needs a Calendar. Leo says that Google Calendar is a good free option. There is also a calendar built into Windows 10. If you can find a copy of Microsoft Works and install it, you can then export the calendar into VCalendar. There is an app called Works File Converter that may be able to do it.
