Microsoft Works 9 is the perfect suite of home productivity tools that will make your everyday tasks easier than never before. The program is really easy-to-use since most of the utilities within the suite can be controlled and accessed through the Task Launcher homepage. The Works startup screen initially offers access to a calendar and contacts, but you can also view templates. The calendar, along with its appointment and contact management, is a useful alternative to Outlook. The suit includes a word processor, spreadsheet and database application, all of which are new versions of Word, Excel and Access respectively. A great new feature is that the word processor includes its own dictionary, which is very useful and has a nice user interface. On the contrary, the program has very little to offer as regards formatting options. It just lets you perform basic font and style changes and mail merge. Microsoft Works 9 would really appeal to those interested in creating and managing basic projects.
