When I click on a doc file it directly opens with OfficeSuitePro. I don’t anymore have the choice between OfficeSuitePro and QuickOffice because once I have replied Always to the message: Complete action using” that gave me initially the choice. This happens for my files stored in DropBox and GoogleDrive. I went to the apps settings to try to clear the default but found out that there were no defaults set therefore the clear default button is greyed. I uninstalled and reinstalled the apps but the problem persists.


If you've tried to clear it from the apps settings for Dropbox and Google Drive, you'll find there are no defaults set, because the default is set with the app that opens the file, not the app you open it from. From Apps in the device settings, go to Office Suite Pro's settings, and click Clear defaults there.

  • A side-note: in many cases, Default App Manager seems like a useful interface to that, which most likely is easier to handle for "beginners". Default App is another nice alternative. – Izzy Jan 10 '14 at 21:19
  • Thanks a lot for this. It worked. I mentioned your enlightened help in Howtogeek here goo.gl/3eSDBn – Cyber Jan 12 '14 at 9:29
  • @Cyber In that case, you might "accept" it as the correct answer, so other visitors can see your problem is solved. – Dan Hulme Sep 25 '14 at 8:52
