The Office file I clicked on won’t open, why? Problem when opening previous versions of Office files.

You are here

Sometimes when opening previous version of an Office file you can experience that nothing happens. The reason can be that a Windows Security window is hiding behind any other window. If you press Alt+Tab you can switch between open programs and windows to find this particular window. There you can click either OK or Cancel, and the file will be opened in for eg. Word.

Note: You can’t edit previous versions of the file.
