Why Is Microsoft Word Show Email Files Instead of Word Documents

by on November 10, 2008

Q: I am using Word 2007 on a brand new Dell Precision PC. When I try to open a document, a menu entitled “Select Document” pops up, but listed are files from my email account. The menu has drop-down buttons entitled Library, Document #, and Version. On the same menu is a button called “Use Application Dialog.” When I press this button the files in My Documents come up. Is there a way I can stop it from bringing up this menu and just bring up my My Documents menu instead?
