Double clicking to open Word XML files in Word, and Excel XML files in Excel
I have two documents with the same file extension (.xml) – one was created with Word 2007 and saved as Word 2007 XML, and the other was created with Excel 2007 and saved as Excel XML Spreadsheet 2003. When I double click the Word XML document, it opens in Word 2007. However, if I double click the Excel XML document, it also opens in Word (in the not-so-helpful XML view). If I change the default program to Excel, then both files open in Excel.

Is there a way that I can double click and open Word XML files in Word, and Excel XML files in Excel?

I think its an issue in vistas file explorer, because with xp there seems to be no problem
