    List of documents in ms word 2007

    I have Windows 8 and MS Word 2007. I am on a blank new document screen. I click on the Office Button, click on OPEN, and the list of files that appears is ALL FILES on my computer.

    When I was using Windows XP until just a month ago, when I was in Word and Opened, the file list was only Word files.

    Any suggestions how to get the file list in MS Word to include ONLY Word files?

    You should have a drop-down box where you can select file type. Here's a screenshot from Word 2010 as I don't have Word 2007 installed, but from memory earlier versions all had this drop-down box too.
