I installed a Trial version of Microsoft office (against my will) as a requirement for a class I attended. Once installed all .docx files opened with Microsoft Word 2010. When the Trial ran out, i uninstalled the software and now none of my .docx files will open.
I can open them manually after opening Word Starter, but I cannot open the files directly.
I've seen people all over the internet suggest that changing the default program to "Microsoft Office Virtualization Handler" will work, and while that may technically 'be' Word Starter, it does not work.
Doing that changes my icons to a weird sheet of paper looking thing and when I double click them I get a ding error sound, no pop-up and nothing opens.
