Word for Windows 95 to open attachments

By soulsmiths ·
I have ben using Wordviewer 97 to automatically open & read any text attachments. I would simply click on "Open", the Viewer would be invoked & I could read & print the attachment.
I have since loaded Word for Windows 95. Now that is the application that is automatically opened when I open an attachment. However, the attachment text always appears in machine language & I cannot figure out how to convert it.
Now I must save in Wordview & open it separately, adding a number of actions to what was a simple Open direct from Microsoft Exchange.
Ideally, I would like to open an attachment using Word vs Wordviewer as I can then edit the document. Perhaps they are incompatible.
Any insight is appreciated.
Nik.

Open My Document (or any file folder). In the menubar, goto Tools->Folder Options->File Types. Find the TXT file type and click the Change button. Browse the list for WordViewer, or click the Other button and browse to the WordViewer executable.

Sorry, but I don't understand. I shall use existing method. "My document" just allows me to open a document. There is no toolbar when I choose it from the Save option from the attachment. And I don't really want to use Wordviewer but rather Word. I don't know where to choose "My Document" from - the "My Computer" options? If you could tell me what changes to make in Word that would help or Wordview. But neither have a "Folder"` option in "Tools".
Thanks anyway.
