This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

So why not purchase Office as it suggests? –  Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Sep 30 '13 at 15:21

1 Answer 1

Windows does not include software for .docx files by default. You can download free software to open them from http://www.openoffice.org/
