Opening a word document

When I open a word document from my email it takes me to wordpad.  How can I make it open in Word?

Re: Opening a word document

Do you have MS Word on your computer?  If so, you should be able to set it as the default document reader in your Windows OS.  Look in Control Panel and someplace in there you should see your default programs.  I'm on a Mac so it's different for me.
