When I open a downloaded document (usually originally a Windows document), and click on it, somehow it is always opened in "Open Office" a slow and cumbersome word processing app that translates MS documents and spreadsheets well but is too sophisticated most of the time, so I only want to use it in rare cases when all else fails.
Instead, I want "Pages" to be my automatic default app for such things. How do I reset default applications, in this case to "Pages"?
