OpenOffice

To get OpenOffice to Save in Microsoft Word .doc format by default, follow these steps:

  • Tools > Options
  • Load/Save > General
  • In the bottom right of the window, look for “Always save as” and pick your poison 😉

I know that saving in a proprietary format over an open standard is bad practice, but sometimes in Business you need to maintain interoperability with the de facto standard; in this case: Microsoft Word.
