Question about Computers & Internet
The "squiggle" is a tilde. This along with the $ indicates it's a temporary file, not meant to be opened with a word processor. You need to find the original file which does not have these symbols at the front. You computer will open files based on the extension (e.g. the .doc, .xls, etc) at the end.
To force these files to open, you might try renaming them to take out the symbols.
