Running OpenOffice and Microsoft Office at the Same Time: Issue

Juliana-2
Hi Team,

I have been using Open Office. Yesterday, I installed Microsoft Office 365 Personal. Now I have the following issue:

I cannot open xlxs files. I have to use Open Office and cannot open with Microsoft Office. This is true of Words documents too.

Does Open Office take precedence over Microsoft Office?

I need to import xlxs files into JotForm and cannot do so at present.

Could you please help?

Thanks so much,
Juliana

You might try right-clicking the .xlx file and “open with.”

No, it’s a setting in your Operating System.
Just right click on the xlxs file and choose Open With then select the application yo like and it opens a you prefer.
You also can tick the option to do this always in the future.

Far from home without a computer, but, my guess is that this is related to file extensions, my guess is that when you double-click on a file it opens in open office as opposed to Microsoft office because open office is the last thing that you installed.

If you do not receive a response on how to do that in Windows, try Google. I don't know how to do any of that because I don't use Windows really, I'm a Linux guy, but I understand the problem.

Hope it helps at least a little.

and one final comment, try opening office and then using file open to open the file in question rather than just double-clicking on it, that should get you there until you fix the association problem
