    On my Explorer context menu I have "Open with" which when clicked offers me the choice of several programs. One of these is Word, and I'm using it a lot to open html files. Can anyone please tell me how I can place beneath "Open with" another "Open with" but "Open with Word" so that I can do it in one click?

    If you go into Explorer>Tools>Folder Options and scroll down the list, you will see that .doc files are already associated with Word and so are .htm unless you have set something else to open those files with in Internet Options>Tools. For instance, I've associated mine with Frontpage. You shouldn't therefore need to use the OpenWith feature - double clicking the file name in Explorer will choose the relevant programme for you.

    I had thought about that, but thought that it might mess up IE opening html pages on the inte Internet. It doesn't, so that's great. Thanks
