MS Word domination of Appleworks

As a writing software tool, I prefer Appleworks to Microsoft Word but everytime I re-open an AW file, it comes up as MS Word. Why? What can I do to stop the unauthorized takeover of AW documents by MS Word?

Shift+right click an AW file and select Open With. Choose Appleworks from the list and tick the box to the effect of alweays use this program.

well I don't have a two button mouse but I did find the "open with" section of File menu. I selected Appleworks but I do not see that box to select always open with. Consequently after I put the AW file away and tried to open it again it came up as Word.

roosterscriber when you say you don't have a two button mouse does that mean you're using a Mac?

Yep I'm a Mac Man. Sorry, I should have mentioned that. It's a G4 with 350MHz and 832MB ram and Mac OS x.
