odt files will not open

Postby Barbro » Fri Feb 02, 2018 9:48 pm

My newly installed Open Office 4.1.5 will not open .odt files. My old Open Office 4.1.3 did open the same files.

What is different? What must I do to open my .odt files?

I am using a Windows 8 system.

Thanks

How are you trying to open them? By double clicking on the .odt files? Try starting OpenOffice from the Program button and using /File /Open; navigate to the target file using the navigation button of the /File /Open window. Select the target file and click OK. Does it open then?

What is the 'Program' button?

The button, usually on bottom left of your Win 8 screen, that allows starting any program.

I think you mean the "Start" button although I don't recall if that button is on Windows 8.

Probably, Bill. It is so long since I've used Windows (last was XP).
