I think.. well know I have messed up. I was trying to get Open Office to open attachments.. they wanted to be opened by Microsoft which I don't have. I went into defaults settings & clicked on Open Office. Now all my text files go to Open Office plus I have to click on the message below to get anything to happen. How can I get attachments to go to Open Office & text files to go to note pad?

Maybe right click on a .txt file, choose Open with... then select not notepad but 'Choose Default Program.

Then choose notepad making sure the check box is checked that says something like always use this program to open this type of file.
