Hi team.This is all very hi tech for me so be gental.Over the years i have tryed to find various things to down load(eg see subject)I get sooo tyered of going round cnet/softtronic/fixit/etc.I heard a few years ago that i could hit a couple of keys and it would remove a sight from the million.Doing this removing it soon reduces the sights down to a managable amount and alows the good sights that dont want to run a sacn and ask for control .I am aware that these sights have a tiny wee spot that you clik on and it lets me into the sight i want.Most the time i spend an hour trying to find it and end up giveing up.Same thing happends when i type in a problem i may have.Same loop.Same names start coming up.Same end result.Give up.
   I have come to Geekzone for this reason.How can i edit out these loops when i serch.Is there a majic key i havnt found yet.Thanks  kind regards Bruce

Search out open source software like Libre Office instead.

Open source sites do not use that kind of insane misdirection and there is very little advertising, if any.

Hi Bruce, gzt gave a link that takes you directly to the LibreOffice web site and there is a download button staring you in the face, hit that and it should guide you through. Here is the link, press HERE

Open source sites as in this case are web sites of open source products that dont cost to use, hence the term open source, they are built with tools and time that is donated by the open source community.
