Hi all, So I had been testing out my free trial of microsoft office which has now expired and I have updated Libreoffice to Version:

But how can I set this as my default program to open documents/spreadsheets etc instead of microsoft office.

I am running windows 8. I have gone into the Control Panel to 'set default programs' but 'Libreoffice' nor any of its componets (eg 'swriter') are listed!

And when I go to where libreoffice resides on my hard drive I can't see the .exe for the separate components. I have found the shortcuts to them in my startup folder, but they don't seem to appear in the folder that the shortcuts point to?! And I have 'show hidden files' selected.


Thanks for any help.
