All of My Open Office Documents Have Changed to Word Docs

Postby keepitmoving » Mon Jul 16, 2018 7:03 pm

Hi Guys!

All of my open office documents have somehow mysteriously turned into word documents. Is there anyway to change this back so I don't have to buy word? I only use it at home for personal use so don't want to have to buy word if I don't have to. Also, I'm not very good at computer technical stuff so if you could tell me in easy terms I'd greatly appreciate it!

Thanks so very much for your time!

They haven't. A Windows update has caused Ms Word to assume responsibility for opening them. Change the default program to open them back to OpenOffice. Look up "File Associations" or "Default program" to find out how do this.
