I'm willing to pay a reasonable sum for assistance. This weekend would be perfect. (Geez, I hate asking for help, really). Please PM me if you are able to help. Thanks kindly.
If your old PC (W7) is still available, can you use it for this time sensitive project? As for the printer, go to your manufacturers website, look for support, you should be able to download the original manuals as well as the updated drivers. If your printer is hooked up wireless (WiFi), there will typically be a WPS button on your router, and on the printer there will be a menu option or button, you still need the driver on your computer. As noted above, you can purchase MS Office, I did this for my wife. One Drive is a CLOUD storage (aka backup) service. It is your option if you want to use this, I do not for security concerns. I still do some consulting and much of this is on confidential projects.
I am completely tied up this weekend, but if you are still in need of help, send me a PM and I should be able to help during the week.

Depends if you have the key card, I also hated going to 10, Lots of my games won’t work in 10

Thanks to all for advice. I finally just bit the bullet and started watching tutorials on You Tube for MS 10 WordPad. I liked Word so much better. I didn't realize I didn't have to save things in One Drive (the cloud). I don't want any of my stuff up in the clouds!! I do not like change, that's my problem!! But thanks to all of you for tips and instructions. Very helpful.

1. You don't have to save things to the cloud, UNLESS you have a Surface laptop.
2. Not sure why you would want to use WordPad, when LibreOffice has SO much more capability and function and behaves SO much more like MS Word than WordPad ever did, or will.

Watch some YouTubes on switching to Linux, you might change your mind about Window$, it changed mine.
