    Hi,

    My dad's Macbook Pro came with the trial version of Word. Clicking on a .doc attachment in Mail would open it in Word. I removed Word from his MB Pro and he now has Pages running fine. But when I double click on a .doc in Mail, it now opens it in text edit - how can I make these .doc attachments open in Pages by default?

    Click on any .doc document and get info.

    Choose "open with" and select the Pages app and set it "open all " as the default app.
