    Hi to all,
    Can somebody please help me, when I try and open some files it says that this file is to big for note pad would you like to open it in word, the problem being that most of the files are not text files.
    Any help would be much appreciated, thanks

    You need to associate these files with the appropriate program.

    The principle goes like this:

    Select any file of the type you want to change.

    . Highlight the file file by clicking on it once
    · Hold down the shift key and then right-click your mouse
    · Select "Open With" from the menu
    . Choose the appropriate program.

    Be sure to check the box, "Always use this program to open these files".
    · Click "OK" and you are all done!

    Good luck,
