When I open an xls file I receive, Numbers is the default app that takes over. I prefer to use Open Office. I have been unable to locate any way to change the default. The same situation holds for Pages.

Hi,

. I have been unable to locate any way to change the default.
Try this
  1. Go to the Mac's Finder.
  2. Find the file type you'd like to open with a specific app, and select it.
  3. Click on the File menu and select Get Info.
  4. Expand Open with: by clicking on the triangle to the left.
  5. Select the Open with: menu, then choose the app you'd like to use to open all documents like that one.
  6. Click the Change All... button.
  7. You'll get a dialogue box asking you to confirm your choice. Click Continue.
  8. Close the Get Info window.

This should now let you open documents as you want, just do the same for other apps.;)
  1. I tend to just right click
