    Using Word 2004 instead of 2008 to open .doc

    Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) Processor: Power PC I got tired of the slow performance of Office 2008 (especially the load times) and reinstalled Office 2004 (Word Only). I kept Office 2008 installed in case I need to open docx, ppt or xls. However, I want to use 2004 to open .doc and 2008 to open the few .docx I have to work with--is there a way to do this? It seems that you can only use one or the other for all word docs. btw, while I prefer Word 2008's features, Word 2004 "just works" on my G5 imac. I suppose "universal" is more universal for some than others.

    As long as you have both installed 2008 will preempt 2004 unless 2004 is already running. The one alternative I'm aware of is to Control+Click the file & use the Open With command to specify which version to use... But that has to be done on a file-by-file basis each time you open a file. Using Get Info> Open With to Change All won't work. There is no other way [AFAIK] to change the behavior which originated with the introduction of 2008 - unless someone has come up with some other process they haven't shared :-) Regards |:>) Bob Jones [MVP] Office:Mac On 11/11/08 5:46 PM, in article
