									                                    How to Use Microsoft Viewers

Microsoft Viewers are free downloadable applications that allow a user who does not have MS
PowerPoint, MS Word or MS Excel the ability to view documents created with those programs.
Although actually having the Microsoft application installed on your computer is best, the viewers allow
you to see the document in the format in which it was created.
