Windows 7: Open With (Boy I did something wrong)

27 Dec 2011   #1

Windows 7 x64 RC1, Vista Ultimate, XP Pro
Open With (Boy I did something wrong)

I did a print screen of Google map with my route and save it in Word 2010. Now I try and open it with my photo manager so I can crop it but instead I open it in windows media center by mistake and now all my word documents that I have in my computer has switch over to windows media center. I can open them with word but I can't save them back in Word. All my .Doc are OK but all my DOCX are switch over. So how can I fix this?

I found out how to do this: Right mouse click - Restore previos versons - General - Opens with - Change - I change it back to word and all my word Documents went back to Word right before my eyes.
