    In the control panel I see a listing for"Microsoft XPS Document
    Writer" when I was setting up my new printer.

    Was just wondering if someone could tell me what this is and does.

    TIA

    Easy squeezy lemon peezy ... one goes to their favorite Search engine.
    One types in Microsoft XPS Document Writer, one presses the Enter key,
    and voila. Sorry, you'll have to do the reading yourself -


    Microsoft XPS Document Writer (MXDW)
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd145058(VS.85).aspx
    and
    Print to the Microsoft XPS Document Writer
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/Print-to-the-Microsoft-XPS-Document-Writer

    Sorry I thought it would be taken that I am running Windows XP where
    it is a XP news group.

    Am running XP service pack 3.

    TIA

    Obviously he also asked for Office 2007 !

    And Office 2007 installs XPS.
    And XPS is a prerequisite for OneNote 2007.
