To associate a file type like .pps permanently with an specific program like SoftMaker Presentations, please do the following steps under Windows XP (these steps are almost identically under Windows Vista and Windows 7):
1. Right click on the desired file type and choose "open with" and then "Choose Program..."
2. Select the desired program/application. In case you cannot find the program in that list, click on "Browse" and navigate to the
installation folder, for example C:\Program Files\SoftMaker Office 2010) and select the desired .exe file, e.g. Presentations.exe or Excel.exe
3. Enable "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" and click "OK".
This I have already, I well associated files pps with the application of pesentaciones of softmaker office 2010, but if I click a file pps opens the application - as if it were a ppt - and I have to start the presentation manually.
What I want is that when you press a pps file to start automatically the presentation...
I also find two other problems with softmaker office 2010:
1.- I cannot change default font and size, I always get by default the type of font and size next to install the program.
2.- I can not define carpetar where search automatically my documents in any of the applications of softmaker office 2010.
Does all this solution?. I would like to dispense with free Office (I have it running in parallel), and stay only with your program.
Greetings and thanks,
