Text documennts converting to media player

Postby wurry » Fri Aug 10, 2018 5:21 pm

Some of my text documents will only open with media player - not much use!!
I have tried 'open with', but Open Office does not appear in the options.
Can anyone help please?

What are the types of your text documents in question (the three/four letter extension after the filename)?
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.5 on Xubuntu 18.04 (mostly 64 bit version) and infrequently on Win2K/XP

To set the default application, see: [Tutorial] Setting the default program for MS Office formats.

Please add '[Solved]' at beginning of your first post title (edit button) if your issue has been fixed.

If Writer doesn't appear on the Open With list for an .odt document, then there are missing Registry keys that put Writer on the list and you need to repair the installation of OpenOffice.
