Hi. I'm new to this forum. I read about it in "All You." Anyway, I just got a new computer with Windows 7 and the word processing program is Microsoft 2010. I am having a hard time adjusting from Word 2003. Is there any way I can get my documents to automatically open in 2003 rather than 2010? As of now I have to open 2003 and then find the document. I was hoping there would be a way to just click on the doc I want and have it open in 2003. It's kind of minor but making me nuts! Change is hard as you get older.

Thank you.

Hi richdan: :)

I am a bit confused, are you saying that you have both version i.e. Office 2003, and 2010 installed on same system?

Yes, they are both on the same system. The new computer came with 2010 and I added 2003.

Just my zero cents it's not recommended to install multiple versions of same application on same partition, especially older version on top of newer :)
