I've printed a document in Word to a file instead of actually printing it out. The document is saved with a .prn file extension. Does anyone know how to get this .prn file back into a printable format? Or is that possible?

One way to do this is to drop to DOS or open a DOS box and type copy filename.prn lpt1 /b
Of course, you replace "filename" with the actual name of the file. The "/b" tells the system you're processing a "binary" (machine language) file, not text.
This works best with simple files that don't use any or many of modern printers' advanced capabilities. In fact, it works best with plain text files.
