Studio 2015 suddenly will not open files!

I've been using 2015 for months with no problems.
Today, out of the blue, I suddenly cannot open a new document. I normally do this by pressing CTRL + Alt + O, but now this does nothing at all, no error message, just nothing.
Selecting File -> Open also does nothing.
I tried uninstalling the whole thing and starting again, but it's still the same.
What has happened and how do I fix it?
Thank you.

Studio does not know any CTRL-ALT-O Sep 8, 2016

What are you trying to do?

There is no keyboard shortcut CTRL-ALT-O nor any command "File - Open" in Studio!
"File - Open" is a menu with various subcommands depending on what you want to open (a document, a project, a package, ...).

If you want to translate a new document, you should use the command "Translate Single File" (CTRL-SHIFT-O).

Does this work for you?
