I CANNOT GET THE MICROSOFT WORD/ WORKS #8, TO WORK FOR ME. I WANT TO GET RID
OF THE FIELD NUMBERS. I AM A WRITER AND CANNOT HAVE FIELD NUMBERS IN MY WAY.
HOW DO I GET RID OF THEM? ALSO, ON THE WORD DOCUMENT PAGE, I GET A BLUE
SCREEN, NOT A WHITE PAGE. I CANNOT TYPE IN THE TEXT. DO I NEED TO HAVE
ACTIVEX OR DIRECTX TO HELP ME ACCESS THESE PAGES? WHEN I GO TO FILE AND
SELECT NEW DOCUMENT, IT BRINGS BE BACK TO THE HOME PAGE. THANK YOU.

Hi Ashlee,

If you are talking about field codes, you just need to go to Tools menu,
Options, View Tab and deselect field codes. As for the blue background, try
the General Tab in the same dialog box and deselect blue background with
white text and see if that works for you. Don't know if this is what the
problem is for you, but thought I would try to help.

Apart from Elannia's answer, you should also buy a new keyboard. The
Shift Lock (or Caps Lock) key on your current keyboard seems to be
stuck/broken.
