    When I see a .doc file in windows explorer I see it like this: [​IMG]
    When it should look like this: [​IMG]

    I originally had .doc files opened in word pad before I installed Office.
    It's a small detail but I find things like this very annoying. I tried everything I can think of, how can I fix this?

    Open the Control Panel (icon view) and then Default Programs.
    Open "Associate a program...etc"
    Scroll down to .doc. It should have an entry for Microsoft word (See attached picture)
    If not, click the "Change" icon (Top right). If you do not see Microsoft Word in the window, browse to the Winword.exe and associate it by selecting.

    I apologise, for the forum, for the delay in any advice. It must have somehow slipped through the net??
