[Solved] Making Open Office my default program

Postby kmike76 » Tue Jun 02, 2009 9:20 pm

Hello

I've been using Open Office for about a month, and I like it. I
I am using version 3.0, and run on Microsoft XP.

I'd like to make OpenOffice my "default" program (if that's the right word).
What I mean is, when I try to open a word document or a spreadsheet, It
automatically opens using Microsoft Office. I have to right click the mouse,
and use the "Open with" command, and then choose "swriter" or "scalc"
to bypass Microsoft Office.

But I'd rather have my work open automatically with OpenOffice instead of
MS Office. Is there a way to do this? I hope what I am saying makes sense!

Thanks for your help,

Mike

Thanks Tom for your help, that did it. I searched the forum using the word "default,"
but missed your link.
