Alain your message is disjointed. Have you posted more information on your problem elsewhere?

I’m going to take a guess at your problem. You’re successfully decrypting your files with AxCrypt but Windows hasn’t got a proper file association for Office365.

  • Open Microsoft Word
  • Create a file called DOCUMENT.DOC on your desktop (ensure it’s saved)
  • Quit Microsoft Word
  • Right click on the file .DOC file (do not right click on the .AXX file)
  • Click Open With
    • Click Choose Another App
    • Find Microsoft Word
    • Choose ‘Always use this app to open .doc files.
  • Now go back and double click on your AxCrypt file
    • Windows should now associate .DOC files with Microsoft Word
