    word documents saved as wordpad documents

    I am using Word 2013 on my laptop. Windows 8 was operating system. Recently upgraded to Windows 10. When I save Word documents now, they are saved as Wordpad documents. (.xml files) Wordpad does not recommend some of the Word formatting and alters the documents.

    How do I correct this? I want the save as Word documents, as I did in the past.

    Thank you.

    In Word try the file tab > Options >Save. You should be able to change to a default of .docx .

    Use 'Save as' and choose from the list of options.
