Hello, Anthony,

 

Within File Explorer, locate the name of the folder. Hit applications, shift+10 or right click with the mouse on the folder depending on your configuration. There should be a Dropbox submenu. Hit right arrow on that, and there should be a share folder or something like that.

Yes you can, but having bought Office I now would have to buy it again. its a pity if you have an old copy that you cannot just pay an upgrade price, but i suspect the upgrade from 2002, might be as much as a new one!

I happen to like 2003/2 version of Word. I'm not going to get you started on ribbons again honest.

I believe you can still; buy Office.  As I recall, you have the option to

rent or buy it.  If I'm wrong, I expect others will know an correct me.
