    Dave,

    Why not edit your images in PSE and then bring them into Word?

    Dave, the Word help seems to indicate that Microsoft Photo Editor is the
    'hard-wired' choice for editing within Word. If that's true, Nancy's
    approach is the way to go.

    If you have Word 2K or later, you may not be able to change it at all.
    And you may not even have the choice of Photo Editor if you have
    Office XP or 2003. (they stopped shipping Photo Editor as a part
    of Office with XP)

    The fact that there is a dialog box that looks like you ought to be
    able to make a change is a vestigial leftover from the days
    when Microsoft actually wanted to give you a choice.

    I had four very long phone calls with Office tech support re this.
    It s, they know it s, and they don't give a flying fig.
    "It is not a bug, it is designed to function that way. No, there
    is no current workaround."

    Dweebs.

    Nancy/Chuck: Thanks for the reply, but I am trying to access PE2.0 through Word rather than editing via PE2.0 and importing into Word. I know that Word has the capability of selecting a "Default" picture editor, but it seems to limit your choices to MS products. I looked in the MS Knowledgebase, and it basically notes that PE2.0 should have made itself available to Word when I installed. However, that is not the case. BTW, I am using Word 2000 on a Win200 system.

    Dave,

    I understood what you were trying to do...just figured rather than knock yourself out trying to get around the wishes of that Redmond group to keep all computer activites "within the family", I would point out the obvious alternative.

    Might the issue be one of order in which the two programs were installed? If Word was on before PSE2, Word may not have the capability of recognizing a piece of software that didn't exist on the computer at the time it was put on. A MS Office users site might be a better place to post this question, since it appears people on this one don't have the experience you were hoping for.
