Open Hard-To-Open Files

What kind of file is it?: If you are having trouble opening a file you created on another computer, first determine what kind of file you are trying to open.  By right-clicking on the file, and then clicking on Properties, you should be able to determine what kind of file you are trying to open.

My file can't be opened at the library. What now?: If possible, return to the computer where the file was created and us the "save as" feature to attempt to save it as a file that can be opened at the library.
 
My file is on the list of files that should open but doesn't open. What should I do?: If the file will not open even though it is listed in the above table, try moving to another computer.  If this does not fix the problem, if possible, return to the computer where the file was created and attempt to save it in Arial or Times New Roman font.
