OpenOffice Writer 3.x Guide
Previous Page Home Next Page

Starting from an existing document

All Writer documents are associated with the Writer application. This means that you can start automatically, simply by double-clicking a Writer document in a file manager such as Windows Explorer.

You can spot an Writer document by its icon: Image:Writer-icon.png.

Note for Windows users

If you have associated Microsoft Office file types with OOo, then when you double-click on a *.doc (Word) file, it opens in OOo Writer.

If you did not associate the file types, then when you double-click on a Microsoft Word document, it opens in Microsoft Word (if Word is installed on your computer).

You can use another method to open *.doc files in OOo and save in the *.doc format from OOo. See Opening an existing document for more information.
