Subject Re: File associations - LibreOffice and OpenOffice on Windows 7

W7 Does not have the file types tab that XP had. However, you can download  
the File Types Manager  
( and use it to  
create a second open option from the default. Say you want LO to be the  
default, then you might add an "Open in OO" option. I used this for my  
text files dilemma where I wanted Notepad for quick and dirty editing or  
viewing and my text editor for when I want to edit polished files.

If you are familiar with editing file types in XP, it is fairly similar in  
File Types Manager. Mostly it is that the interface is different.

Otherwise you would have to edit the registry directly.
