Re: setting Word 2010 as default


Marianne Denning
 

Thanks everyone. I did exactly what everyone said. My only choices
for Word are Word 2016 and Word 2013. Word 2010 isn't one of the
options and it is on my computer and I can go into it and choose to
open a file and it works just fine.

1. Open Windows Explorer and select the file

2. Press the applications key to bring up the context menu

3. Arrow down to “Open With” and press the right arrow to expand the
menu

4. Choose “set default program” or similar. In Windows 10 it says
“Choose another app”. This should be at the bottom of the list

5. In the box that appears select Microsoft Word 2010 from the list of
applications

6. Tab to the checkbox for “Always use this application” and check it
if it is not checked already

7. Tab to the OK button and press Enter

This should set your system to always open files with that particular
extension in MS Word.

I used the applications key and it did not have it there. I thought that
was the same as right click.

That should do it for all files of that type.

I want all of them to open in Word 2010. It is a very long story.

You should be able to right click on the file you want to open, then find
the option that says set default program.
