This is another post about this problem.
I have just received my new Tab S7+. I moved all my files over from my previous Tab A. However, when I try to open my documents, I can't stop Office launching and claiming the docs are read-only. This was never the case on my Tab A. I never use Microsoft Office, and I never want to. I hate the fact that Office locks files like this. Ideally, I would delete Office, but that is not apparently an option. It has a disable option, but this does not prevent it launching at the merest hint of a document opening.
This is driving me crazy.
I downloaded Google Docs, and this recognises those files that are already in my Google Drive, but weirdly, not on my tablet. Some folders appear greyed out. I have asked Samsung customer services for help and they suggested paying a subscription to Microsoft, which I will not do. I am thinking of returning the tablet if I can't get this sorted, but would ideally love a solution.
Can anyone please help?

I pre-ordered and just received a Tab S7+ I transferred all my documents (I have been using Google Docs on my previous Samsung tablet). Now, every time I click on a document, Microsoft Office opens and will not let me edit any of them. I downloaded Google Docs to use instead, but Docs cannot see the files and this nonsense has completely disabled all productivity.
I am also being asked to subscribe to use Office. I would rather pay someone to make Office go away. How has it come to this? I am extremely annoyed and frustrated.
Any work arounds would be highly appreciated. Otherwise, I shall return the tablet as incapable of doing what was advertised.
