  2. microsoft word 2003

    In the past year or so I've noticed another quirk where a downloaded Word document or other Office document won't open regardless of the steps I take to open them. After deleting the file and re-downloading the document it opens without issue. I've been using Chrome almost exclusively so I'm not sure if I've experienced this with Explorer or Firefox. So one last step to try might be to obtain another copy of your files if they are being generated and fetched externally to your system (ie. try downloading them again as the file might have simply been corrupted).

    Word opening files as Document1, Document2


    This was the ticket. The .docx extension was associated with a word document template file type.

    I used Nirsoft's File Types Manager software to correct this and now everything works fine.

    That is, I open the document itself (not two copies or one copy), for reading or editing, if I:

    • Double-click on the file which I usually do
    • Right-click on the file and pick "open with > Word"
    • Right-click on the file and pick "open"

    Prior to your help and my fixing it, only the third option above worked.

    Big thanks.
