  2. File extension *.docx

    Hi Randy,

    To change the file extension when saving a document in Word 2013, you may follow the steps below:

    • Click on File; then, select Options from the list.
    • In the Word Options window, choose Save.
    • Under Save files in this format, select *.doc from the list.
    • Hit OK button to confirm and save the changes.

    If ever your Word 2013 application is not recognizing the changes you have made, you may restart the application; however, if the issue still persists, we suggest that you repair it. To do this, see this
    link.

    We would appreciate it if you could get back to us and provide us your feedback.

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.



    I understand that you are facing issues associating a particular file extension with a program on Windows 10. I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.

    2. Click on Programs.

    3. Then click on Default Programs and click on Choose Default for this Programs.

    Shortcut to print without opening Visio File (VSDX extension)?

    Since, without opening file, I can print VSDX file by following steps:

    1. open file with Internet Explorer
    2. get Internet Explorer to print.
    Is there a shortcut ? My wish to have:

    1. right click file with VSDX extension and print just like Office documents?
    2. VBS using COM
    3. Powershell script
    Thanks Ahead!
