    Default Word docs saving to Wordpad; Documents opening in Wordpad instead of Word

    I have no idea why this happened but my Word documents are not saving as .doc files instead they are saving to Wordpad.

    How do I get this to stop?

    Once the document is saved to Wordpad, right-click on it and select Open with.

    If you see Word listed, select it. If not, click on Choose another app or default program. If you see Word listed, select it and check the Always use this app to open doc files check box.

    If you don't see Word listed, click on the More apps list and do the needful.
