I have downloaded some word documents off safari, but when I try and open them, they open in Adobe Acrobat Reader, rather than Microsoft Word. Is there anything I can do to resolve this issue, and make the documents open in the correct application.

  • I wonder if removing Acrobat from the iPad, opening a few documents (hopefully in Word) and then re-downloading Acrobat might do the trick... Commented Mar 16, 2020 at 23:41
  • @Steve Chambers yes good idea. I've never seen a docx files displayed by Safari. Does that happen?

  • I suppose word would have the facility to navigate to the file ?

  • Depending on the Word document, yes absolutely. Complex ones don't render well but heck Textedit.app on macOS opens most Word files. Commented Mar 18, 2020 at 0:21
