outlook 2007 - email with word attachmnt


L

I have both Word 2007 and Word 2010 on my computer. When I open up an attachment that is a Word document, it opens up in Word 2007. In doing so, it takes a significant amount of time (it goes thru a "configuration process.") each time.

What can I do so that the document opens up in Word 2010? What can I do so it does not go thru this configuration process?

I have Excel 2010 on my computer. When I open up an Excel document, it opens up immediately.

Would appreciate any help to eliminate this annoyance.

Uninstall Word 2007 from the control panel?

Uninstall Word 2007 from the control panel?
I thought of doing that but when I review the Control Panel listing, I see Office 2007. I am afraid that if I attempt to UNINSTALL it, the Outlook program will be uninstalled, and if so, I cannot install it again since I am away for the summer and do not have the disc.

RightClick a .DOC file, Open With ... (choose Word2010), Check "Always

use the selected program to open this kind of file".



Didn't you try that?



Bruno
No, I did not try as you suggest. When I right click the document, I do not see that option.

What OS are you using?

I am using the latest version of Windows; think it is version 8
