    How do I associate Office 2000 as default to open Office documents


    I still use Office 2000 on my machines (judge me!).

    I have never had a problem installing or using Office 2000 on a prior machine.

    I successfully installed it, and the Compatibility Pack, on a new Win10 laptop. And I can open (say) Word fine, then open .doc and .docx files okay.

    But if I click on a .docx file, my machine will try to launch the installed trial version of Office that's on the machine, rather than what I want, which is Word 2000.

    If I try to tweak the default app, below is what I get:

    That is, I am only given a choice of current Word, or something from the Microsoft store.

    How can I force Win10 to open docx files with the correctly-installed version of Word 2000?

    :)

    Open Office is nice. Not great, just nice. It is somewhat slower when opening certain types of documents when compared to Office 2003 for example and it requires a bit more resources, RAM-wise. But other than that, I mean, it's free right?

    How do I associate Office 2000 as default to open Office documents

    Please help transferring MS Office Outlook 2003 files to Office 2000

    My old machine with all my email and contacts has MS Office 2003 pre-loaded on it. I just got a new machine and loaded Office 2000 on it because that are the disks that I have. I can't afford to buy the new Office so I am wondering if it is possible to transfer from 2003 to 2000? Thank you. Frank

    I thought I had it figured out when I found this website but when I go through the steps and bring the folder over to the office 2000 machine, it says wrong format. Does anyone have an easier way?
