  • Hi E. Timothy Uy,

    You can change the startup application by:

    1. Select the app for Office project node

    2. Go to Properties window (it can be launched by hitting F4)

    3. You will see a property called "Start Action"

    4. Expand the drop-down list of "Start Action" and select the application (Excel, Word, PowerPoint, and Project).

    Let me know if you have any other questions.

    Thanks,

    Xiaoying

  • Dear Xiaoying,

    Thanks so much for your help. It turns out that the right-click Properties is different than the F4 Properties. That's pretty confusing!
