Hey, everybody. I'm Jeff, and today I'm going to show you how to make Microsoft Word your default word processing program. Computers usually come with default word processing program like text edit and notepad. And I'm going to show you how to open those files in Microsoft Word. So I'm going to, I have text edit open. It's a more basic word processing program. I'm just going to type, this is a text document. Then I'm going to go up to save as, I'm just going to hit save, I'm going to save as a docx. So text document and by saving it as a docx it will open up as a Microsoft Word document. So it'll appear on a desktop. And so I'm going to double click that and what I just created in the text document in text edit is now opened up perfectly in Microsoft Word. And you can edit it just as you would any other text document in Microsoft Word, even though you created it in the other one, you can do the font, you can do the size, bold it, unlimited editing options in Microsoft Word. And that's how you make Microsoft Word your default word processing program. I'm Jeff and thank you very much for watching.
