Windows 7: Upgrading to Office Home and Student 2010 from XP Small Business 2002

Upgrading to Office Home and Student 2010 from XP Small Business 2002

I use MS Word a lot. Whenever I want to do anything with my saved Word items, I click on Documents, click on my Word item I want and it opens up. Since I upgraded to Office Home and Student 2010, when I click on the Word item I want, a window opens up and asks me what program I want to use to open it up, 'Notepad' or 'Wordpad'. I want neither. I just want it to open up like it did before I upgraded. Any solutions?

Thank you,
Frederick J. Garver

Hello Frederick and welcome to Seven Forums.

You may have to change the default program that opens Word documents. See if this tutorial helps.
