Hi, I have a doc in word that has some screenshots on it. it is 846KB and I need to make the file smaller as I will be sending it via e-mail attachments a lot and maybe some of the people I will be sending it to only have dial up. How can I change the file size in word?.....Thanks

Zip the file. If you have Windows XP, in Windows Explorer right click the file, Send To > Compressed (zipped) Folder.

Yes if they have Windows XP. If not they will need an unzipper like WinZip click here (free trial).

Sorry, cross-posting.

Try using WinZip and see if that does any better.
