Yeah sorry to have not been more explicit.

Double click on either Word or Excel type documents do not open (when the 
reported situation occurs)
Trying to double click on the OO short-cut creates a think for half a minute 
then nothing.

Version of OO is 4.0.0, under Window 8.

Thank you for your advice.

Cannot report as, naturally, OO is doing fine right now.

Many thanks for the Task Manager approach suggestion.

Iain

I assume you are using windows of some sort.

Can you be more specific? I am uncertain exactly what you did and then
what happened when you did it.

(1) Do you mean that you use Windows Explorer to find a WORD document
and then you double click on the WORD document and OO does not open?

(2) Do you mean that you use File > Open, select a Word document?

(3) What if OO is already open and editing a document when you try (1)
or (2)

If OO has failed in some way, try this to start:

Open the task manager (I think you use Control+Alt+Del and then select
open the task manager).

I think that from the process list (is that what it is called, I am not
on a windows box), look for the process labeled "soffice", and kill it.
If OO is running, make sure that you have saved all documents first,
because this should kill OO.
