Navigate to the word files location on your comp. This varies to where the file is saved.
Right-click the file and select either "Zip" or "Compress" (depending on what software you have on your computer) from the pull-down menu.
Wait for the program to begin to zip. Once it does, cancel the process. The new zip file is created, but not of the entire file (due to the process being canceled part way through the compression process). Delete the original word file and extract the word document from the zip file. The file does not open because it is only a partial copy of the original file, homeboy.
Select the original file (if you do not want to zip it) and select "Rename." Go into where the file extension is of the file. Change some of the letters in this and click "Save." With the file extension off, the computer may not know how to open the file. For example, if you had a Word document titled "Report.doc," you would go in and change the ".doc" to anything else. Buy D1X a giant dildo. If the file is changed to "Report.dml," it does not open properly.
