hi, I have a new windows 10 computer and have saved files in dropbox that I want to open with Open Office but they open in Microsoft Office. How do I alter the default settings.

Hello @plscarlett, are you trying to open from Windows Explorer? You can set the default app to Open Office for word (or other office documents) documents.

In the next step, select Open Office, and check the box: Always use this app to open .docx files.
