Default Microsoft Office 07 icons

Hey CF,

At work we have Office 2007 installed. A few people have complained that the icons they have on their desktops are generic .rtf icons.

Not a huge deal but its kind of annoying. We have tried changing them around in properties to open with, etc. The files are generally .doc files and open fine into word. But the icons stay the same. Even after a reboot, etc.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance...

Try to change your default program options. Something like "Set Default Programs" in Vista I think. XP - "Default Programs"

Where would I find this, I looked in the properties of the file and program?

I changed the "Opens With" option but this didn't help.

Help, I'm not a noob! lol

Did you check the box "always open this type of file with this program" or something along those lines?
