.docx opens in WordPad
Hyperlinks open the .docx in WordPad, despite a lot of advice.
I prepare a large document with many references to accompnaying files in format .pdf, .xls,. doc, .docx format. Each reference has a hypertext link (was more bookmark) in the right place in the documents. All the docx open in Wordpad.
I have Wondows 7 Home Premium on one intel i5 laptop.
In C:\Program Files (x 86) \Microsoft Office\Office12, there are 219 records/files = 497 MB (521,322,281 bytes), 14 Offcie with five .dll files.
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office 12 is almost empty: just the wo and 1033 folder with two files .dll files.
I saw references to do something with .reg, but can't find it, and probably can't do either.
It is a new computer with windows 7 and microsoft office already installed, when I open a word file, sometimes it opens in wordpad, why do that?
Make a right click any word (with extension .doc or .docx) file and let the mouse on 'Open with', click on choose a default program..., highlight the word and check the box always 'using the program selected... '. "and then click OK.
Repeat for the other extensions, i.e. If you have found a .doc first rehearsal for a .docx or vice versa.
BTW, you posted in a forum of Windows XP. Your question is really more suited for Windows 7 forum or a forum of office. You can change this by editing your original question and by selecting the appropriate drop down lists entries.
