you can do it by changing the file association for required documents i.e. word, excel, powerpoint, access, etc only change the documents that you need to open with if you have both versions installed. it should be straight forward. If you provide me the OS you are using i can do and more detailed step for how to change the file association.

Hey Wonderful EE members:

I'm on Windows 7 and when I right click and select "open with" it only gives me one choice: "Word". And it doesn't even tell me the version!!!!!

HI John Korchok.
I opened up a separate question on the SEND TO suggestion you made.  I got advised by EE admins that I was asking too many questions per issue and so wanted to ensure I did the right thing.
