Open Office/Microsoft Word

  penglais 10:23 13 Oct 2008

I have both Open Office and Microsoft Word installed on my PC. My favourite is Microsoft Word. However, when I click to open Word, I get taken to Open Office. How to I set my PC such that Microsoft Word is the default word processing package? Thanks.

I imagine when you installed OO you answered a prompt in the affirmative to make it the default WP package.
Have a look in the tools or options menu's of OO and see if there is a box you can un-tick.
Or you could simply un-install OO then re-install it. If you get the same prompt answer No.
