Office 2010 (Word) & Keyboard Shortcuts, for File Open

Strange issue where when files are attempted to be opened using the keyboard shortcut in Word using Ctrl + O it does not wok. Closing out of all Office applications (Word/Excel/PowerPoint) and re-opening Word then, restores functionality and it works again.

Hello,

maybe one of the files you had loaded contains a macro that overrides the Ctrl-O shortcut with something else? If it works after closing and re-opening, it looks as if something interfered with the default settings.

cheers, teylyn

It's assigned however the strange thing is that the screen actually blinks like a new dialog box is opening but doesn't do anything. This is also the same with using File -> Open.
One more thing you can try is to locate your normal.dotm template and rename it, like NormalOld. Starting Word will create a new Normal template with default values.
