Tip & How-To about Singer Computers & Internet
There are many people out there who are looking for great open source software, and some of you have stumbled upon Open Office or Libre Office. This is a great alternative to Microsoft Office but with one small problem. It is always trying to get you to save in the Open Document format instead of a Microsoft Office format that your friends and coworkers can open and use. Well I am going to show you a solution to this problem!
Open up any of the programs in the Open/Libre Office suite. Once it is open go into the Tools menu and select "options". From there, expand the Load/Save option and then select "general"
Near the bottom you will see a heading for "Document Type". Select the dropdown box under that and select "Text Document" and then select the dropdown box under "Always Save as" and then select "Microsoft Word 97/2000/XP". After that go back to the "Document Type" and select "Spreadsheet" and set always save to "Microsoft Excel 97/2000/XP". Lastly Choose "Presentation" and always save as "Microsoft PowerPoint 97/2000/XP". Once you do this hit "OK" and your changes will be saved. From now on everytime you save a Word document, an Excel spreadsheet or a PowerPoint presentation it will by default save as a Microsoft Office format!
