I have a problem all of a sudden trying to rename word documents,
I can't rename any word document anymore -- desktop,my documents folder and my pictures .
I get a message " this document will become un -usable if I change the file extention ".
1- If I rename it anyway the word document icon changes from the usual word document icon appearance and has red , blue and green dots with a blue header on top.
2- But if its a brand new word document , for example if click on word directly just before I do the "save as" to anywhere I can name it in that case,
3- but once its named - I can't change the name anymore
4- Also if right click on desktop and choose on new then choose a word document , I can't even type a name to name the document if I do give it a name a message pops up saying , document will be un usable if change name , it just will say underneath "new micorsoft word document.Doc -
So I don't even know whats in the word document , the next time I see it
5- I can rename a folder - I Only have problem with renaming word docs.
I all started when I tried to change the word documents icon appearance in propertys > "customize" I may have done something I don't know what and I can't undo what ever it was I did - I tried monkeying around with word options and nothing helped and I can't fix it in the document shortcut icon>propertys> customize
My last options which I hate to do is more drastic - Un install Reinstall word or the repair option in word ?
Should I un install and re install word or can I fix it in word > options repair ?
Please help me, someone - I am really desperate -- Thank you
