    I just switched from PC to Mac. Most of my old documents are in Microsoft Word, and when I open them, TextEdit is the default application. How do I change the default to Neoffice?

    Click the file you want to open with NeoOffice. Right click it and choose Open With from the menu. Just choose NeoOffice and you're good to go.

    Default

    But can I set it up so that if I double click the file, it automatically opens with NeoOffice, (sets it as the "default" opener instead of TextEdit).

    Click on a document and then right click or shift click, go to Get info > Open with, and choose NeoOffice, and make sure that you have Change all... ticked as well
