    Link launches Word file to icon

    NicMeu
      Up until a few weeks ago, clicking on a link to a Word file (from intranet) caused the application to launch and the file to open. But now, when I click on a link to a Word file, the MS Word icon appears at the bottom of my screen and blinks until I click on it, and then the file opens.

      What has caused this change?

          Your local computer. Have you restarted?
