A friend sends us word documents that arrive with a "_doc" extension, and Word 2007 Home edition won't open it unless we manually change the extension to ".doc."
Windows Vista seemingly won't allow me to name Word as the program to open "_doc" files.
Thanks for any suggestions.
That's rather odd. The only ._ files I've seen are usually hidden files on a flash drive that seem to be backups in case the program crashes. This allows it to open the file to the state it was when last auto-saved. This is just a theory though, not fact. I am not certain how Word restores a document after the program crashes.
