I have Adobe Acrobat XI Standard installed to make PDF's. That process works. But whenever I want to open downloaded MS Word files or Powerpoint files, they open as a PDF which I don't want - I want the Word or Powerpoint file. Is there some "preference" or process I can do to make sure Word files always open in Word and Powerpoint files are always opened in Powerpoint?
