    Can you go to that same folder, with those files from your first post, in File Explorer and replicate a screenshot like in my example, including the “Type” detail? Remember, you can use the Paint app to edit out the names of the files. I just want to see the extensions at the end of the filenames, and what “Type” says.
    Seeing a screenshot would be helpful for many other people that could help out.

    Ignore above. I posted at the same time you did when you said you solved the issue. Also, I was looking at my phone on this website, and didn't see the picture you posted earlier, regarding what I wrote above. Sorry about that.

    If you wanted, we could explore what really the "DOC file" association, like you said earlier, really is.

    In Settings ...... "Choose default apps by file type" I clicked on the .doc file and selected Word.
    I avoided mentioning that method because it's possible to make a right hash of things. It's more difficult to mess things up in the method I suggested but it is no better technically.
    I'm glad you sorted things out.
