When you open a certain Word document on your Mac you get the following error:
“Word cannot open this file because it is larger than 32 Megabytes in size.”
This is caused by the file that youa re trying to open being too large. It is usually caused by adding lots of large images to the document.
- Right click (or hold Ctrl and click) the document and move the mouse to the “Open With” menu.
- Click TextEdit if it is there.
- If TextEdit isn’t there then click Other and select the TextEdit program from the Applications folder.
Any images in the document will not be included and will need to be added again. It is advised that you try to make the images smaller before re-adding.
