Printing addresses on envelopes

  Okimot 17:30 24 Jul 09

Have got a new desktop computer with Windows Vista Home Premium installed as the OS. Previous PC had Windows XP. In Wor, if I typed a letter, I could highlight the address and click on an icon to print the address on an envelope. I have tried to find the icon in Wordpad in Vista but cannot locate it.
The icon was on the toolbar in XP.
Cannot seem to add any more commands in Wordpad in Vista.
Any help much appreciated

Were you using Word or Wordpad in XP? Word is a much more comprehensive programme.

I was using Word in XP

You cannot do it in them programs, like you can in a Word Processor

If you are using word after you type the letter highlight as you did above then there should be may be something under Format in the menu of word I use WordPerfect in Menu\Format I get envelopes, after getting in i choose DL for envelopes I use

Just substitute Jarte for WordPad (it uses the WordPad engine and adds many extra features, including printing envelopes).

If you high light the address you want to print, then click on Tools/Envelopes and Labels, then pick the required envelope and carry on from there.

Also, if, when you are in Word, you right click on a tool bar and call up Customise, then look in Tools and traverse down until you see the Envelope icon, called Envelopes and Icons, drag this one to your tool bar, and you should be back where you were before the change to Vista. It is in Word, not in Vista!!

I must confess I assumed you also had Word in Vista, but on re-reading your first missive, I see you are trying to do the address bit in Wordpad. You will be struggling with that!

Word is not included with Vista or, in fact, with XP or any other Windows operating system.

Absolutely. What I really meant was that "I assumed you had word ON the Vista machine!"

If it was on the XP machine, can Okimot transfer it on to the Vista machine?
