STEP # 1 -
Open The Mail Entitled "FILE ATTACHED VERSION OF PAPER"

This Is What You Will See Once It Has Been Opened:

Open the mail marked FILE "ATTACHED" VERSION -- click the DOWNLOAD FILE button --If not available, try clicking FILE (top of screen) then SAVE AS ...


Step # 2 : Press Whichever Button Lets You DOWNLOAD The Document
NOTE : On Some Systems, You May Need To Click the Word 'FILE' (top screen) and then 'SAVE AS'
This Is Similar To What You Will See Next:

Show the computer which folder you want to PUT the file IN...
(Pay attention to where the paper is being downloaded ..
In the case above, it's about to go into the /download folder)

Step # 3 : START YOUR WORD PROCESSING PROGRAM..
Click 'FILE' (top of screen) then 'OPEN'

This is an approximation of what you will see :

Start your word processor. Click FILE (top of screen) then choose OPEN from the list that appears ... navigate INTO the FOLDER you just told the computer to download the FILE to ..Make sure for FILES OF TYPE -- the screen reads "ALL FILES"... -- DOUBLE CLICK the right file ... and it will OPEN on your screen!
********To view the file, YOU MUST choose "All Files" 
from the "Files of Type" menu above********


(Note : You Must* Navigate To The Folder Which Contains The Downloaded Paper --
The above example is "looking in" /PAPERS .. when it should be "looking in" /DOWNLOAD)

Step # 4 : Select The File You Downloaded From The List & Doubleclick It....
(The File Name Should Appear in the Above-Depicted Box
So Long As You Have Moved To The Proper Directory and
selected "ALL FILES" as shown in steps 2 & 3)
