    automatically opening a file in wordpad

    Hi Jeff,

    The default program used to open files depends on the file type. If you've already downloaded the document, change the default program by following these steps:

    • Right-click the file.
    • Choose Open with.
    • Click Choose another app.
    • Select the program you want to use.
    • Check the box beside Always use this app to open files.
    • Click OK.

    Let us know if you have any other concerns about opening files.

    automatically opening a file in wordpad

    I was trying to open a syllabus for a class that was a googledoc. For some reason instead of opening I was getting a prompt to open the file with another program. I accidentally clicked wordpad when the "automatically open every time" box was checked,
    so now every time I try to open that file it goes straight to wordpad. I need to know how to undo that I checked automatically opening the file in wordpad so that I can figure out why the googledoc was not just opening the way it is supposed to.
