    Select a word file and use command - i to open the info pane.  Select the Word Program for "open with" and set as "use as default" "Change All"

    I made a mistake when I said preview was opening all my documents.

    I used your advise and have word set up to open all documents but now I realize that Word is the program opening  a stream of my documents when I open a Word document attached to an email.

    The screen goes into a stream from left to right all the recent documents I have opened.

    I would prefer to just open the document I clicked on.  Thanks for your help.

    Do you have this box checked?

    Thanks for the reply.

    Sorry that did  not work either.

    Each time I open Word it still streams thru a number of documents.

    When closing Word it does it in reverse.

     

    Any other ideas?

    It did not do that in the begining.  Would deleting and re install word be a good idea?

    Thanks

    I doubt it but it can't hurt I suppose. I've seen one or two threads about this and will post if I come across anything further.

    Team,

    I did find the answer.

    I changed Word to "open" in Galery.  That stopped the flowing documents and allows you to open one document at a time or create a new document.

     

    Thanks for the help.

    No problem. You taught me something I didn't know anyway.
