What is the document you are opening? Helpers need information and you have not provided any.

Any kind of document I have saved on my document folder that gives the option"open with" when I choose notepad it opens with nothing I can read.Even if I scan something and save to my document folder and try to open it with notepad I get the same results. Thanks for your help.

Is it a doc file or something else - give examples please?

Not everything will open in NotePad or Word because of format differences. Garbled letters are not unusual but sometimes a certain amount is readable.

Please come back and let us know the outcome.

Often scanning is in a proprietary format until you export it to a specific program or format. Some save documents directly to PDF format. Most scanning software that comes with scanners allow you to port the document to one of several programs like Word, Excel, Paint, etc. and then you would save them there to your documents folder in the correct format. You really need to read up on the documentation that was included with the scanner, or as read me text or PDF files within their software folders, or online.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
