WordQwik is a breeze to use. Simply type WordQwik at the DOS
prompt or use your DOS shell program from within your word
processor. The menu of confusing words will appear in the
center of your screen. Use the up and down arrow keys to scroll

this file:


Then save the Config.sys file, reboot the computer and WordQwik should
run correctly.
