In the past, I have been able to access a Corel Word perfect file by double clicking its icon in a folder such as My Files. The double click opened both the application (Word Perfect) and also the file. Now, when I double click the file's icon, the application is opened, but the file is not. I have to click on File/Open and then find the file and click on it to get the file displayed. This condition is probably due to something I did in deleting and restoring some files (related to Netscape which I do not use) or to something my wife did in fooling around with options or preferences. In any case, I can't get back to the old way of simply double clicking on the file icon to get it on the screen.
Incidentally, double clicking still works fine for such things as Corel Quatro Pro, Word Pad, or Note Pad. It's only Word Perfect that seems to be giving the trouble.
