Microsoft Word

I have Office XP Pro. I can bring up a Word Doc but when I save them they get saved in Wordpad. I can't change them. This is what I've done.

Went to a Save Word Document
Put my mouse pointer over the Document
Right click the mouse
Click on Properties
Click on Change
Word is not there
Go to Browse
I don't know where to go from here

do you mean that your doc's get opened in wordpad? or they get saved with a wordpad icon?

right-click on a document >> open with... >> if you see word on the list, select it, and make sure the 'always use...' box is ticked

if you can't see word on the list, youy have to use the 'browse...' button, and navigate to the word program (winword.exe), probably somewhere in your c:\program files\microsoft office folder (or similar, i don't have it installed here right now).
