    Somehow, my calculator file got deleted or accidentally moved. When I went through XP help to open it -- Help said the file was not there and I needed to re-download it.

    I do have the original XP OS CD but I do not want to re-load the whole thing.

    Can anyone suggest either
    a. how I might search for the file in case it got moved accidentally. (I've been working pretty hard and I can imagine having done that playing around with the tool bar.)

    or

    b. where to go to download just that tool?

    TIA
    :)

    Or, go to Control Panel > Add Remove > Windows Components > Click Accessories > Click Details > see if there's a checkmark next to Calculator - this actually happened to me TOO! and I went crazy doing searches not finding it :D :D
