    Is it possible to have all my .doc files to open with pages, instead of textedit, and without selecting all and clicking open with, and clicking always open with?
    Sometimes someone sends a .doc file, and it automatically opens in textedit, instead of pages. Is there any way to tell the computer to open every file with that extension in pages?

    Thank so much

    1) Use a significant thread title...
    2) Yes, select any .doc, press CMD + I, select "Pages" in "Open with" and then press "Change All..."

    EDIT: And also using the "Search"-feaute on the forum is quite useful at times.

    Didn't mean to be rude or anything. It's just the best way to get the best replies :)

    I didn't see it as rude or anything, was just too lazy to type a long title. But thanks for the help.
