As you know word documents open by default in pages, and it takes time to do that. Is there any way I can make those documents open in preview first? (plus any other kind of document that you may know) It would obviously be way faster and less cumbersome.
If all you want to do is see the contents of the file, no need to open it at all. Just use Quick Look. Select the file and the hit the spacebar to view the contents.
