    Opening Word in IE (WordXP)

    When opening a Word document from Internet Explorer, it defaults to open the document in Internet Explorer. How do I set it to launch Word instead?

    Thanks.

    Select Tools | Folder Options...
    Activate the File Types tab.
    Select Microsoft Word Document / .DOC in the list of registerd file types.
    Click Advanced (Windows XP) or Edit (other Windows versions).

    Hans,

    Thank you! I spent hours looking for that option and couldn't find it.
