- Windows 8
Thanks for the reply. I tried using "Set your default programs", but Microsoft Word didn't appear (Outlook was the only MS Office program in the list). Then I tried "Set Associations" and .docx files are set to open in Word, but there's still no MS Word icon on .docx files when I view them in Windows Explorer.Hello Deposit,
Double check in Default Programs to make sure that Word is set as the default program with all of it's associations, and see if that sorts it afterwards.
Hope this helps,
