i should make it clearer.

1 cannot alter the size of text within a cell

click on appache 4,1.2 after selecting the windows logo on the keyboard. Get spread sheets/ text etc but there is no option to pen a save file after clicking on spreadsheets. it's the first time ive used this program, I think it will be the last!

Are there no settings for New, Open and Save/Save As under /File menu item? Also, you may need to turn on /View /Toolbars : Formatting to get a formatting toolbar that will allow you change sizes for selected text.
