Hello Everyone,

I was intending to type up a document. But when I right click the context menu and go to >>New, I do not see Micrsoft Office Word Document, Excel, Powerpoint, etc... Anyon know hot to get them back? I see Access as that is the only one that is there. Just to clarify, this is the right click context menu on the desktop.

Thank you for your help,

hortoholic

Try the fix at Kelly's Korner.

Restore Open With on the Right Click - #220 on the left.

Right click on it and save the .reg file to your desktop. Then, double click on the file icon (on your desktop) to merge it into your registry. You may need to reboot your computer for the changes to take affect.

With any fix like this you should create a new restore point and backup the registry first. For backing up the registry I like to use ERUNT.

Good point - must not have had enough coffee :thumbsup:

You could also try "Restore the "New" Context Menu to Default" - #286 on the left - from the same site.
