So what have you tried so far?

What happened when you tried to open it in Word?
What happens when you double click the file? Something like "original cannot be found"?
Are you sure that .ink is not .lnk

Where is the original file? It had to exist before you put it on the USB Drive
Where is the backup of this "important" file

I did it! Thank you!

Sorry for mistyping, it was .lnk file, NOT .ink.

When I double clicked it, Winebottler software was shown in the screen and it asked me to run it. When I ran it, it didn't react anything.

But since it was very urgent because of the deadline, I had find it anyway. So I looked for different options in Google but to no avail. Lastly, I thought of trying Youtube. When I typed my problem, there came a video which was addressing exactly the same problem that I had. I followed each of their step and thankfully I could get back my file.
Thank you all!
