:thumbsup: I reformated my computer a couple weeks ago and of course when doing that you have to adjust things as they come.
Well I boo boo'ed while opening a pdf file .It asked me what I wanted to open it with and I said microsoft front page. I always use microsoft word for PDF.
My question is HOW ON EARTH do I switch it to word. Now when there are any PDF files I need to look at there is no option on how I want to look at it ,it just goes to front page.

LOL take it easy on me I am not the best on computers but I know more than the average person .

You will need to change the file association for .pdf

Click on my computer from your desktop.

Tools/Folder Options/File Types tab.

Scroll down until you see PDF.
Click on PDF to highlight it.

Next click on Change. Choose the program you want to use to open pdf files.

Click OK.

IF the .pdf file is saved on your computer, you can RIGHT click on the file, then choose Open With.
Choose Program. Again, make your choice, then check the box for Always use the selected program to open this kind of file. Click OK.
