Windows 7: Change Default "Save As Type" file

It doesn't matter what program I am in i.e. Excel, Word, etc, etc when I do a File > Save As the Save As dialog appears and in the drop-down field "Save as type" the default value always selected by Windows .txt.  I'd like to change this format to always read another type for format instead i.e. .XLSX or .DOCX.  Where in Windows or the registry would I need to go to make this change?   Thanks.

Windows File|Save As|Save As Type choses the type based on the type of file the page to be saved is.  However you usually have a few choices, if you click the down arrow at the end of the Save As Type line.  
I do not think you would be happy to always have .xlsx (for example)  chosen by default even if the type of page has nothing to do with Excel.
