If you mean another program is linked with your word documents, you can change it back by right clicking on the document and choosing "Open with" and then choosing Word as the default program.
If this is not what you meant, please write back

You actually have 2 options.

First Option: (You can also see the instructions here.)

5)Go to "File->Open" and open your scanned document that has been saved in *.TIFF format.
6)Go to "Tools->Send Text to Word." You will get a prompt stating this process will take time, Click OK. This will take some time depending on your computer's speed (a minute or two at the most).
7)When it's done it will open up Microsoft word on its own and the scanned document will now be in editable mode.

How to convert scanning documents to MS-words


You are going to want to find any OCR software that works for your printer. OCR is 'Optical Character Recognition'. It will take the scan and convert it into a text document, which is either already compatible for MS Word, or easily converted itself.

Scan document into text


Scanned documents are image documents and they need to be converted using an OCR program. The Optical Character Recognition program converts scanned image documents into a text file which you can open with a Word program and edit.
You need OCR programs such as -
OmniPage 17
ReadSoft
GOCR (freeware)
Tesseract OCR (freeware)
Microsoft Office Document Imaging (included in MicroSoft office Tools)

I just purchased your new software program and we used it to design a certificate. If we send the certificate as an attachment it just ends up as mess that is unreadable. What program do we need to use to...


Well, this is not Microsoft support, this is a community site of volunteers helping others :)

Now, what you need is a piece of software that will convert your certificate or whatever you will design into a PDF document, which will maintain the formatting, fonts and everything, when sent as an attachment to e-mail and opened on any system - hence the name Portable Document Format.

The simplest way is to install PDF Creator, which is free software. Go to this site, download and install:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfcreator/
It will create a new "virtual" printer, to which you will print the created document. PDF Creator will take over and ask you for document title and file name under which you want it saved. Once you save it on your hard disk, it will open in your PDF reader (if you don't have one installed, which is unlikely, then read bottom) and you will see the document exactly as everyone else will see it. Then you can attach this file to your e-mail message and you're in business.

To get a PDF reader go to http://get.adobe.com/reader/ and install, proceeding as instructed.

Don't forget to come back with a testimonial if helped please :)

I have the philips gogear digital audio/video player(sa6185).how do i move video to the player using the supplied arcsoft media converter?i have followed the instructions but when i try to open files to...


The Arcsoft Media Converter only recognizes a limited set of file types. I would download a program called Riva FLV Encoder, and convert the files that the Arcsoft does not recognize to AVI format (the product documentation for Riva says that it converts files to FLV format, but it is quite capable of doing the opposite). Once the video files are converted to AVI format, the Arcsoft Media Converter will recognize them.

Try reinstalling Quicken 2008 after uninstalling it first via 'Add/Remove Programs" in Control Panel. this should help.

Also check out THIS article on converting Quicken files to new versions and other info..It may prove to be quite useful..

As for the IBM Laptop not recognizing the flash drive, generally they come with a driver CD. Try installing that on the IBM and see. If you do not have the CD, you should be able to find the driver from the manufacturer's website, or do a google.

Should you have any further questions, please feel to post them here. Please do not assign a rating until you feel your problem is resolved. I will try my best to help you further if need be.

If you are satisfied with my solution or have no other questions, please close the problem by assigning a FIXYA rating for my solution. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.
