but if I open MS Word and then open and browse the same directory, I can open it fine.

What form of office do you have? Is this something that just started? What happened to your PC prior to this occurring? Do a search for "File types" and "Choose default app by file type" and see that DOC, PPT, EXCEL are properly synced with the appropriate Office app. Here is a MS link that might help https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Double-clicking-an-Office-file-fails-to-open-it-in-the-correct-Office-program-1e9c0ad9-34c8-4440-a42e-d30186b29ed6 If all else fails deleting and reinstalling office would likely solve your problem.
