    How do I set my Mac up so that when I get a Word, Excel or Powerpoint file, I can click on it to open it and have it automatically open in Pages, Numbers or Keynote?

    Thanks!

    Find a Word file on your Mac. Highlight it, then hit Command-I on the keyboard (or go to the File menu and choose Get Info). In the section for "Open With…" choose Pages. Then, click the Change All… button directly beneath that menu.

    Repeat for PowerPoint and Excel files.

    Find a file, right-click and Get Info, change Open With to the appropriate app, then click Change All.
