[Solved] OpenOffice documents changed to MS Word

Postby radios » Tue Apr 04, 2017 3:01 pm

I was happy using open office. Now, all my documents have changed to wword. I tried to change my default in settings but that is confusing. I don't want to use an app, I want to use a program. I cannot figure out how to get rid of microsoft wword and use open office. I want to change all my documents back to open office. I use windoes 10

What is really frustrating is that if I try to open an old open office document, it won't open, it fails. Then when I choose to open with, open office is not even an option. This makes me hate microsoft.
Thanks, Charles

If you actually have MS Word installed got to Control Panel-->Programs and Features and uninstall it or the MS Office suite if that is the case. After the uninstall is complete go again to Programs and Features and right click on AOO and select Repair. You should be offered the opportunity use AOO to open MS Office documents as the default application.

Enter a relevant subforum; do not select a topic, but press the New Topic button, which is on the left with its name in red, just below the links for subforums to that forum.
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.4 on Xubuntu 16.04.03 (mostly 64 bit version) and infrequently on Win2K/XP
