Default Defaulting Office 2007 "Create New Office Document" to .doc

I have the default document set .doc in Word. However, when I right-click
on the desktop and select New-Microsoft Office Word Document, it creates a
document in the .docx format. How can this be corrected?

Thanks!

However you create a new document, that document is in Word's internal
format until it is saved, so the suggestion that it creates a 'docx' format
document instead of a 'doc' document doesn't make any sense.

It is saved immediately clicking in the .docx format.
