.RTF file
I am trying to open a document I received in .RTF format. I click on the document icon and it asks if I want to download. I say yes and it downloads but when I click to open it I get a message that says "Can't open file."

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Word or Wordpad should open the document. It may be damaged or incomplete. You may want to check out the file size to see if it seems reasonable. If it’s very small I suspect it’s a bad file. You can always try another text editor program like NoteTab++ as well..

Some editor have their own restrictions on file size. It may be that the file is too large for the program you are using.

    First of all where did you find this file? You said, you downloaded the file, but from where? Is it from email or from other source? If it is from email, is the download process completed fully? While you tried to open the default program like Wordpad, what error is shown?

    Also there is a free program called Open Office, you can download/install the same program by customize the installation (only install Writer equivalent to MS Word) and try to open that. Or can download the same file again from another browser, if any.

    What version of Windows/Word are you using? Would it previously open .RTF files? If so, has Windows (or Word) been upgraded since then?
