Default Save As...*.txt files

Thank You Shauna,
However, that doesn't do it either. I was expirimenting and noticed
something. If I hit "Save As" and then go to "Tools" at the top, there is a
"Save Options..." button. On it, you can select your default format. There
it has all the different options that are normally on Word. However, if I
say that I want *.txt to be my default, it won't let me save as a *.doc file.
What to do?

The list is longer than that which pops up at first click. Use the slider
bar to see the other options.

Hope this helps.

File Save As. In the Files of Type box or Save as Type box (depending
on
your version of Word) choose "Plain Text (*.txt)".

Hope this helps.

Is there any way to make a file in Word and than save it as a text
file?
You
can save it as all these other files, but you can not save it as a
*.txt
file. In Microsoft Works Word processor, you can save it as a text
file,
but
why can't I in Word? Is there some upgrade I can get that will let me
Save
As a text file?

Hi

I'm sorry, I don't think I can help any further here.

I do File Save As. Next to the "Files of Type" box, I click the little
down arrow and there are 13 different file formats in which I can save. The
8th one is Plain Text (*.txt).
