  1. Problems opening msword files after the upgrade from Win 7 to Win 10.


    When I try to open an msword document that was pre-existing on my document files a box pops up. It says, "Microsoft Word isn't your default program for viewing and editing documents. Do you want to select the file types that Work should open?" Then there is the Yes and No boxes.


    If I click the Yes box, a blue bar pops up that says "To change your default apps, go to Setting>Apps>Default apps" and there is an OK box.


    When I click the OK, the "Choose default apps by file type" page in Setting comes up.


    When I scroll to the Microsoft Word Document files, the MSWord 2013 is already shown as the default in every case.


    Please help. I have Many msword doc files that I need to work with and I am at a stand still until the problem is fixed.

    :)

    is hardware OK (Win 7) for upgrade to windows 10

    I think in one of the other PC with win 7 or win 8.1 I run media creators tools and in some step prompt/found graphics card not supported... for win 10. I didn't found alone reading specs of win 10, but the tool says me... after changed graphics card the tool said all OK and continued OK with upgrade... That I ask to reach this step in this current PC - win 7 - must be all OK for the upgrade? Or must continue to upgrade to show this?
    and got to point

    • UPGRADE this PC now
    • Create media(DVD, USB stick, ISO)
    is hardware OK (Win 7) for an upgrade to windows 10 for this PC???

    Problems opening msword files after the upgrade from Win 7 to Win 10.

    Recommend hardware changes for upgrading from Win-7 to Win-10

    Bree
    I followed your suggestions (2nd Aug 19) for installing Win-10. Made the bootable flash drive successfully through the media creation tool. But when I attempted to upgrade and activate to Win-10 (64 bit) from within Win-7 (Pro-32 bit), I got the following error message:

    Error # OxC1900101-Ox20017. " The installation failed in the SAFE_OS phase with an error during BOOT operation"

    I read the diagnostics under this error number and carried out the proposed fixes, i.e. update Win-7, uninstall Malwarebyte antivirus, disconnect all external hardware, e.g. printer, scanner, external hard drives. I then tried to repeat the steps to do the upgrade through the Win-10 bootable flash drive as before. Got the same error message.
    Appreciate any further comments and suggestions as to (a) what does a failure in the SAFE_OS during boot operation mean, (b) what can I do to solve it. Is this anything to do with the hardware in my computer? I listed these in my first posting above.
    Thanks for any help
