I am a new user to Open Office and have been quite happy with the parts I've had need of use for lately.

This morning, however, I encountered my first problem. I save all of my text documents in RTF format by habit. I have done so for many years due to necessity. I still prefer that format. I have a document saved on my desktop in the RTF format and this morning when I double clicked on it to add information, it was opened in WordPad rather than OpenOffice Writer.

Is there anyway to force Windows to recognise OOWriter as my default program for all word processing files?
