I am using Windows 10 and always get a popup that asks, "how do you want to open this file?" Nothing that I choose works. Please advise.

What type of file is it? In other words, what's the extension?
Is it a PDF, Doc, Txt etc. etc?
If there are no extension on it and, say you know it's a Word 2016 document, then rename the file to contain the "dot docx" extension.
Or, if it is a file that you know the extension on and it doesn't open you can reset the file extension to software relationships. You can edit, while program should open which type of files.
