    I wanted to download the file from the website from https://yanderedev.wordpress.com/2016/05/28/may-preview-14/#comments
    I believe it is a picture, but it might be a video.

    However, my virus program prevented the files to download. I left clicked and clicked on the "download anyways" button because I know this webpage is safe. However, I had to choose which software I wanted to open the file, and for some reason the option to "Always use this" is always crossed! So I thought I could open the file with Microsoft Word for some reason and instantly regretted my decition. Now I can't change it because Word is now "Always in use"

    I would appreciate your guidance :)

    Hi

    What device/android version are you using and which antivirus app?

    You should be able to go to
    system settings
    manage apps
    find MS word
    clear defaults

    Exactly how this appears depends on what android version you have.

    Man this is an Android Forum, but now i answer your question: go to your downloads and right click on the file -> open with -> choose another app -> check use as default application and choose your player or whatever you want ... please ask only about android here.
