Right click on one of the wonky .docx files, choose "Open With", then select "Choose Default Program" from the little menu.. At the "Open With" box, place a CHECK mark in the box that says: "Always use the selected program to open this type of file", then scroll/browse through the programs and select "MS Word".
Hope this helps.
I run Vista with a legal copy of MS Office for Home and Student.
I have recently saved new documents and when I return to open them all I see on the screen is a small red icon and references at the right hand side to a picture.
I am unable to see any of the text that I originally wrote. Have I mistakenly saved it under the wrong format?
I have been using Word for many years and these are the first occasions this has happened.
