I have no idea why -- this is a new issue.  I can't get some of the documents in "My Documents" to open.  What program do I use to open them.  Somehow they've been changed to open with Adobe Acrobat.  But error message says this will not open with this app.  I'm trying to open a WPS file.  I hope someone can give me very simple instructions how to correct this problem.

Thank you.

This topic has been duplicated in General Chat, and with two topics in Windows 10 Support.


In keeping with Bleeping Computer convention of, "One issue, one forum, one topic," the topic here will be locked and one in Windows 10 Support with no responses will be deleted.


Please post only once regarding a specific topic, choosing the forum you believe best suited to it.  In this case that would be Windows 10 Support, at least as its starting point.
