    Word opening files as Document1, Document2


    If I double-click on a Word file from Explorer, Word opens, but instead of opening the actual file for viewing or editing, it opens multiple copies, and they're named Document1, Document2, etc.

    If I right-click on the file and pick "open" then the file will properly - that file, that name.

    How do I get the "expected" behavior from Word, so that double-clicking on a file will open that file with that name?

    :)

    Some programs can suggest a name in the Save As box and it may be a few words at the very beginning of a document, for example some versions of Word can do it, WordPerfect default is Document1, Document2, etc., depending upon files already in the Documents Folder but that is not helpful in describing the document. A lot of the file naming convention has been in use many years as no two files of the exact same name can exist in the same Folder.
