Can't open, edit and save xml files

By kurt568 ·
Hello

I have som xml files i want to edit, but for some reason my pc dont let choose what program i want to open the xml files with. It only show "open" and not "open with" (notepad). Then i forced it to open it with notepad by making it default for xml files. Then i was able to open the file and edit what i want, but when i wanted to "save" it acted as if i clicked "save as". It was like i didn't know where this file were coming from and what to do with it. When i try to find to correct place to save the file, i wont let me.

I'm really annoyed by this problem because it used to be so easy to edit and save xml file. Hope you can help me

I have the same issue and the following steps have worked for me:

Open the file in Wordpad, and edit it as needed.

When you save the file, make sure you save it as an Office Open XML Document.

Now go into File Manager and find the document. Unhide the extension. It will have the following extension: ".xml.doc". Remove the ".doc" part from the extension, so that it has only ".xml" as an extension.
