Do this in your friend's PC :

1. right click on the file>Select Open with>Choose MS word from the list( if its present on the list ) or click browse & select ms word. ( usually present in C:\programs\Microsoft office\.. this path can vary )
2. Tick the box " Always use the selected program to open this kind of file"
3. Select OK.

This should do the trick.

Opens in PDF? PDF isn't any software. Be specific. Which software are you talking about? What is the exact problem and what do you want.

^^ Yea. :lol:

Open a Software in which you want to open a file. Drag 'n drop the file on it.

This trick works for Every Kind of Software and Every Kind of File. Enjoy.

I mean to say the word file when clicked , opens automatically in Adobe PDF reader. I want to do the same

Let me explain in this way:
MS Word is a software which is used to open a .doc/.docx file.
Adobe Acrobat is a software which is used to open a .pdf file.

MS Word is *not* meant to open a pdf file. And Adobe Acrobat is *not* meant to open a .doc file. Since both softwares are designed to open their own filetypes.
You should't set the Adobe Acrobat to open a .doc file.

*If* you are saying that when you open a .doc file in Adobe Acrobat, and it opens successfully, then the .doc file is actually a .pdf file, and is wrongly named.

your friend must be tricking you. file name wordfile.doc.pdf so it will open in acrobat reader. pdfile.pdf.doc will open in ms-word.

I doubt even if we change the default program, a .doc or .docx file will open with Adobe Reader. Not sure if there is any other software which can do it.

adobe pdf reader can't open a doc file but there's some application with built in [ or through plugin/addons ] pdf support which can open pdf files.

Recently I saw Kingsoft Office at my cousin's laptop. It blew my mind. They have made an exact replica of Office 2010, with Ribbons and all.
If I try an alternative to MS Office, I might try Kingsoft Office. Already download on my Nexus 7.

Thanks for sharing. The installer is less than 60 MB :shock: while the MS office 2010 installer takes ~700 MB.
