    Open With

    Hi, Can someone tell me how to tell the system to always open .log files with word pad? I need to print a log file created by McAfee so I can find and eliminate some leftover Norton files and when I right click on the .log file I do not have the "open with" option. When I click Open it launches an Outlook message with the .log file as an attachment. Thanks. Lana

    Hold down Shift when you right-click the file. This will provide the "Open With..." option. From there, select Wordpad and check the box that says "Always use this program to open this type of file."

    Thanks, Alan. I have to wait 'til I get back out to my daughter's to try it, but I knew it could be done. How much time and effort did I waste because I didn't know that simple trick????? Lana
