  • First of all, try this: Exit Word. Hold the Windows key as you press R; in the Run dialog box, type winword /r and press Enter (note the space before the slash). You won't see a message on the screen, but the next time you start Word, the file associations should be restored. If it still doesn't work, see the article at:
