I was actively editing OpenOffice files on Windows 8.1 with OO 4.1.1, when suddenly I could display nothing regardless of its file extension, new or existing (Just a big '?'). I removed and reinstalled OpenOffice, and the default extension associations on Windows appear to be correct. Existing files are not corrupted. Did I flip a setting?

b) it is very likely that your user configurations is somehow messed, try to remove our user configuration folder. SImply rename the folder which is located at C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\LibreOffice\4 (don't forget to use your windows username. for more information look at I have no clue where does save his profile folder
