Uninstalled works, now can't open MSWord docs

September 3, 2011 at 08:37:14
Specs: Windows 7
Was able to finally, with much struggle, uninstall MS Works. I installed MS WORD 2007. I can open MS docs currently on my computer, but now I can't download MS WORD docs that have been e-mailed to me. Before when word docs were mailed to me, I could open them but they would default to Works. Now that I've uninstalled Works, I'm unable to open e-mailed Word docs.

Try this, RIGHT click on the document you want opened, then go to "Open with.." if a small window shows up right beside that current one, look for "Microsoft Office Word". If that isn't in the list, click on "Choose default program". You should see a bigger window appear. In here, look for "Other Programs" in the middle section and double click on it. There you should now see "Microsoft Office Word" Once you click on it then click OK at the bottom and all should be good.
