    Hi,

    Misconfiguration in your system's settings could be a possible cause why you are experiencing an issue with opening your Word documents. For us to provide an accurate solution, we would need to know which build and edition of Windows 10 is currently installed
    on your device.

    For initial troubleshooting, we suggest that you set Microsoft Word as the default application for Microsoft Word document files. Follow these steps to do so:

    • Using Cortana, type default app.
    • From the search results, click on Default app settings (System settings).
    • Click on Choose default apps by file type.
    • Look for .docx, click on the Choose a default button beside it and then select Word.

    Once done, restart your device and then check if the same issue persists.

    We'll be waiting for your response.

    Text Editor on Webpage

    I'm creating a website that requires an advanced text editor, similar to the word processor in Google docs. I'm planning on creating the editor from scratch, but I'm not sure what language to use. I was thinking of using a Java applet, but I'm open to other suggestions. Some of the features that are required are highlighting and drawing (such as Microsoft Paint). Any suggestions would be helpful.
