The WordStar Resource Site is being rebuilt from the ground up. Where pages have been regenerated from the old site internal links to other pages will be broken. These will be corrected when all those pages are live on the site. In the meantime please use the tags at the top of most pages to narrow the search for the information you're looking for.
Downloads are now available to Registered Users. Please sign in to enable the Downloads menu item in the Main Menu.
Thanks for your patience
This page will help you to find a copy of WordStar
Forget it! No version of WordStar for DOS or for Windows, is legally available for free download from anywhere! Don't waste your time asking for a free copy because you won't get one.
