Files Don’t Open When Double-Clicked in Microsoft Office: How to fix it
At the point when you double-tap a document, any sort of record, and it doesn’t open accurately, or it doesn’t open with the right program or application, you may have to fix it with Windows. This is called record affiliation. You may have to fix it/them. This frequently occurs in the event that you introduce an application like Open Office and permit it to assume control over your document augmentations. Maybe you then, at that point conclude you don’t care for Open Office, so you uninstall it, and Microsoft Office doesn’t consequently “reclaim” the record affiliations.
The primary thing you should know is that Windows takes a gander at the record’s augmentation, and from that, allots the application and the symbol. The primary piece of information that you’ve lost a document affiliation is that the symbol changes to something different or changes to the “default” Windows or another unrecognizable symbol.
First, decide the document type. Right-click the filename and pick Properties. On the off chance that the name in the crate at the top doesn’t show a document expansion, then, at that point, you should go set Windows to show them.

Assuming you need to for all time partner this document type with a particular program, check the “Consistently utilize the selected…” Hit OK.

Beth says the/regserver switch will re-register the application, which will reproduce the entirety of the application-explicit Registry passages and it additionally reproduces the record affiliations. Since the “Open with” order utilizes the record affiliations you’ll in any case experience mistakes if the document affiliations are harmed or degenerate.
