Hi, I'm using Outlook 2013 on Windows 10. Everything seemed to work fine for a while and then with no warning or apparent problem of any kind, I am no longer able to open MS Office files that are attached to an Outlook email by double-clicking on the icon. I am able to open PDF's just fine, and I am also able to open the MS Office files if I drag them to the desktop and double-click on them there. I just can't open them directly in Outlook.

Any suggestions?
