    What do I need to do to make Pages my default app for doc files instead of Textedit? I can used Open With in Finder and I can import them in Pages, but I'd like to just click on a doc icon without all that fuss.

    Highlight a known Word document in the Finder, highlight it & choose Get Info from the File menu. In the Get Info box, click the triangle next to "Open With." Click on this drop-down menu & choose Pages. If Pages is not a choice, choose "Other" & navigate to the Pages application. Now click the "Change" button under the text that asks if you want to open all documents like this with Pages. You can then double-click the Word documents & they will open in Pages. Note that the icon for the Word files will have a plain, white icon.
