When I "Right Click" MS Word Document Creation is no longer a choice RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I "Right Click" in a Windows Explorer window and try to create a document, MS Word  Document  is no longer a choice. This happened when, at the insistence of my boss, I installed Open Office 3.41. Now a bunch of Open Office choices occur. How can I get it back to where MS Word Document is a choice?

  • try running a 'repair' installation on your office word. 

    If that doesn't clear it, post back and we will figure out how to check you shell extensions.   These nirsoft tools might come in handy and give us insight as to behind the scenes if the MSI repair option doesn't work.
