I just noticed on my PowerBook that it seems that Word 2004 has commandeered all of my RTF (rich text) and plain text files. When I double-click on one, it automatically opens Word. These files should, naturally, be auomatically opening TextEdit.
Steangely, though, when I control-click on an RTF or plain text file and choose "Open With," it doesn't list TextEdit as an option. I have to choose "Other..." and, from the Open dialog box that appears, change "Recommended" to "All." Only then can I select TextEdit. And even more strangely, when I select TextEdit and check the "Always Open With" box, the file association stays stuck to Word.
Anyone know of a way to permanently fix this? Is there a utility out there where I can force-change file associations in Tiger?
