For some reason all the documents I write in Microsoft Word are saved as wordpad documents, not by my doing. I can open them as Word by right-clicking and selecting to open them with Word, but when I try to send a file, it's send as wordpad. I'd really like to find a way to make it stop happening and get them all back to Word!
Thanks a bunch,
Susan

How do you know that they are changed to Wordpad when you "Send" them?
How are you sending these these files?
and to whom?

Well, they are all saved in my documents as wordpad. I send them through outlook express by attaching a file, so they show up in my email as wordpad. I sent myself a test email with documents attached and they arrived as wordpad.

Is it the Icon or the file extension that tells you that they are now Wordpad file?
Post a screen shot so that we can see the icon and/or extensions!

If it is the icon, then you have set the extension to be associated with Wordpad.

What's the extension of this files? Is it .doc or .txt?
What's your Office version and Operating System?
I'm guessing its an association problem.
