Recently when I open a Word document, it will open in Wordpad instead of Word. This messes up the formatting. Could some one tell me where/how to reset the default word proccessor to Word instead of Wordpad ?

Thank you for any help and suggestions.

I think, if you right click and "Open With" you can choose to "use this setting for this file type from now on" or something like that. Don't be shocked if I completely missed the mark.

Thanks. I'll give that a try with "saved" documents.
How's about when i get a document in email. When I double click to open the document, it always opens in WordPad, not Word. Thus messing up the formatting. What's up with that? Can you help?

I think you can go into the Options of Word and set it as the default, honestly I don't even have a clue where on this planet my Office CD is let alone have Word installed on my computer right now :p

So I'd look in the Options to see if you can set it as the default for .doc files etc.
