You have lost the file association between AOO and .odt / .ods etc.

Search the Writer forum with association or Google set file association (or default programs).

Please update your signature - we cannot tell if you are using Apache OpenOffice or Libre Office - they are completely different programs.
AOO 4.1.5, Windows 7 Home 64 bit

See the Writer Manual, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and the Writer guide.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.

It may also be that there are left-over OpenOffice processes running in the background, due to some form of improper close down of OpenOffice or of the computer. Start Taskmanager (Ctrl Shift Esc) and kill any soffice or Openoffice processes shown on TM's Details or Backgrounds tabs (Processes Tab on earlier Windows). Then exit TM and run OO.
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.5 on Xubuntu 18.04 (mostly 64 bit version) and infrequently on Win2K/XP
