Office 2007 - Word - default format setting

  djsew 16:55 07 Jan 2008

I've been asked how to alter the default format setting in Word 2007 (Office 2007 Home & Student version) by someone who wants to stay with the old .doc format.
Can anyone advise please?

or something along them lines

Click the Office button > Word Options > Save and select 'Word 97-2003 (*.doc)' in the 'Save files in this format:' drop-down list.

I don't have Office2007 to play with, that's why I'm asking. Yes, 'SaveAs' is an option but I read somewhere that it's poss to make a setting...

Yes VoG! That sounds like the instruction I heard about. Thanks.
I now have to coach the new user/owner of Office2007 to make the change, over the phone.
