Making MS WORD The Default Word Processing Prog. ?

Hello,

Have been using WORD 2007.
No problems.

But, I just downloaded and installed Open Office. But I only want to use it for its Spreadsheet. However, it looks like its word processing component has taken over.

Now, my WORD documents are being opened by Open Office which I do not want.

How can I make WORD the Default word processing program (again) ?

Thanks,
Bob

Making MS WORD The Default Word Processing App

OpenOffice and LIbreOffice acquire all *.docx files. When we trying to open them, it opens through OO or LO. Perhaps this article will help you to disable it and make MS Word as the default one: How to Change the Default Program for Microsoft Word Files?
