Solved why are my photos opened in Word and encrypted

Specs: Windows 8
When I try to open my photos they open in Word and are encrypted. How can I change this? I do not know where to look to reset this setting so that photos open in a picture form. I am new to Windows 8.

Sorry, your #3 confused me. Maybe you meant "Save As". Does this mean something is now different?

Whatever folder your pictures are located in they should still not come up in Word. If they don't then we need the answer to #1.

Have you ever been able to view photo's or is it just some particular new ones?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

When you right click on a photo, do you get the option to open with > Windows Photo Viewer?

Have you some reason to assume they are encrypted? To me it seems more likely that they are incorrectly associated with Word instead of a photo viewer (as per #1). In word they are likely to show as garbled text.

No. But I now click "save" and I am able to do that and then move the photo to another folder.
