How to open .docx files

  bernvs 09:26 18 Sep 2013

Until recently I could open email text files which would use my Microsoft Word program from Office 97 which I have used for years. Recently I updated my Tuneup Utilities to 2014. Now when I try to open .docx files, the screen refers me to offers to buy Microsoft Office 2010. How can get around this?

have the same problem. would be interested to read suggestions from experienced forum members. interestingly mine won't open with word 2000 but will if I choose wordpad instead.

You could try downloading the Microsoft Office Compatibility pack.

Link to MS page.
