Default Files are opening in wordpad instead of word.

When I save a document in Microsoft word, and try to repopen it, it opens in
wordpad. This is very frustrating, and I was wondering how I can fix rhe file
associaiton problem.

Default Files are opening in wordpad instead of word.

Right-click on the name of a .doc or .docx (do it once for each kind),
Choose "Open With," and select Winword ("Browse" to it, if necessary).
Be sure the box is checked to "Use this application to open all files
of this type" (or some such).
