Chrome not opening Word docs
Hello all,

My Chrome browser has changed some settings on its own, and wondering how to fix. When in Chrome I've always been able to click on a link on the backside of our company sight which lists a series of forms, and each letter will open up as a Word doc. However, now when I click I instead get a bunch of code across my browser. If I try and open with Firefox the docs open up as the should.
Anyone know a fix?

In Chrome, go here: chrome://plugins/

Make sure that there isn't a plugin disabled that would allow loading the Word document.

It could also be that something changed on the server with the MIME type of the file.
