Windows 7: How to remove access denied

Still need to know the file type (the letters after the . in a file name).

Did you install Libre Office before You uninstalled Open Office? If so I would suggest uninstalling Libre Office then reboot and try installing it again. It should fix the default Open action.

Also check Control Panel, Default Programs. Click on Associate a filetype or protocol with a program.
Set the default for the Open Office/Libre Office file types to their respective executables.

Good info here: LibreOffice file extensions

I am thinking the info you wanted on the file extension is: ODT File (.odt). I will do the uninstall boot etc. now.
I see you are in Florida, right? I lived in Pensacola and later on lived in Miami and Ft. Myers when I worked with Florida Baptist Childrens Homes.

I'm in Melbourne, about 30 miles south of Cape Canaveral.

Check the default of .odt as I described in my previous post. Should point to Libre Office Write or whatever the Word equivalent is.

Sorry for the delay in following up with the most recent results. I have been a bit under the weather. It appears that I have access to all files on my external hard drive. I very deeply appreciate your efforts to assist me. Any info you might want to share would be appreciated. As far as computers I have learned in the years since '98 when I went online, that every day is a learning experience.
