Steps to set default application to open in MS Excel

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

this is a problem for which I am trying to find a solution but all efforts went in vain. I have installed both MS office word 2007 and MS office word 2010 in my PC. Whenever I double click on a Word document, I always get the document owned in MS 2007. For some reason I don’t want to uninstall MS 2007 office suite. Someone guide me on this unique issue and help me in getting rid of this problem if possible. Last resort would be to lose MS2007 version. Thanks a lot for your great help.
