  1. .rtf default app


    When I try to set the default app for .rtf files to my word processor, the processor icon does not appear in the list of options, although the associated spreadsheet program does. How do I force the processor app?

    :)

    rtf. file

    Hi Michelle,

    Some documents when saved takes up space due to its components. For us to help you with your concern, we'd like to know if your rtf file has images on it.

    Meanwhile, if your rtf file has pure texts, we suggest that you follow the steps below to reduce the size of your rtf file:

    • Compose your rtf file in Microsoft Word.
    • Instead of saving, copy and paste your composition to WordPad. All the formatting is copied over too.
    • Save the document with WordPad, and you'll get a significantly smaller file.

    Let us know the results.

    Cannot select Wordpad as default for .rtf files

    I am running windows 10. When I go into settings>apps & features and look for Wordpad it is not listed. If I go to settings>default apps>Choose default apps by file type and find the rtf file type and click on it wordpad is NOT listed. Yet I can go to
    my windows app list under Windows Accessories and wordpad is listed. I can launch it and create files so it is installed. If I click on the rtf file that was just created from wordpad it will not launch Wordpad. How can I correct this problem?

    Cannot select Wordpad as default for .rtf files

    Hello!

    Follow these steps to set your default application when launching .rtf files.

    1. Right click where you want to create a new rich text file (.rtf).

    2. Click New > Rich Text Document

    3. Give your document a name; anything is fine.

    4. Right click your newly created document

    5. Click "Open with..."

    6. Check "Always use this app to open .rtf files"

    7. If WordPad is not already listed, you will need to find it in your PC's program files. To do this, follow Step 7a-7d.

    7a. Scroll down and click "Look for another app on this PC"

    7b. When the file explorer opens, find the folder "Windows NT" and double click it.

    7c. Double click "Acessories"

    7d. Double click "WordPad"

    Your new file that you created should open in WordPad.

    Let me know if you have any other questions. Have a nice day!
