Setting Program Open Options

Q: Setting Program Open Options

Hi guys was changing some icons last night and managed to mess up somewhere. When i went to folder options to try and change the icon for drives it somehow reset the setting for opening drives to find. I changed it to open with windows explorer for now so that i can open things but this doesnt help as they all open in new windows. Does anyone know how to reset this action to default? I checked on my other comp and there doesnt appear to normally be a default option it just opens...
Any help would be great,
Thanks.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Setting Program Open Options

Try a system restore

Go to start/run/ type in msconfig
click on launch system restore.
Pick a date in bold, go back to before you messed up

Good luck

Hello, I have a dual-screen setup. I use several different programs simultaneously, some of which web-based and open within Internet Explorer. So that I can work more efficiently, I want some programs to open in the first screen and some in the second. Is there a utility that exists that looks at the title of the window being opened, and opens it in the user-defined screen? So, if I want outlook to open in the second screen, the program would see "Microsoft Office Outlook" in the window title, and then send it to the second screen when I open Outlook?

Thanks.
 

A:Any way of setting which of my 2 screens a program will open into?

In general, a properly written windows application will start in the monitor where you last closed it. Unfortunately not all are properly written.

For some reason, Adobe Reader is the default that opens when I try to download an attachment in Yahoo mail. I do not see anything in my Yahoo settings to change this. Even if I have an attachment that is a photo, Adobe opens and gives an error message saying it can't open the picture--obviously. I need to know how to change the default program for opening attachments.

I use Vista 32 bit Service Pack Two.

Of course none of these work. Then there is BROWS . . . IF NONE OF THESE WORK BROWSE THE WEB
AGAIN, nothing works

Steps I have taken to try to fix.

Run Internet Option to remove browsing. FAIL

Finally got the rkill--and got this message in my notepad :

Hi. I have been Googling this, but haven't been able to find the information I need. Maybe someone can help here?

I want the option to open a DVD/CD in Windows Explorer to show on the Autoplay option window that appears when I insert a disc into the drive. I am asked every time I put in a disc, which is what I want; the option is there in the configuration settings, but it doesn't appear in the autoplay window.. See screenshots.

I can remove the Open in Windows Media Player option if only four items will show (but how??)

Thanks!

A:Setting Autoplay options

I just discovered that if I insert a DVD-RW with video files on it, I get the above 'annoyance'. If the same DVD-RW has jpegs on it, I get a different autoplay window open, with different options (including 'Open with Windows Explorer)> I'd thought (clearly wrongly) the action was media dependent, not as to what was on the disc.

So how do I get the Windows Explorer option for a disc with .VOB files on it?

Where is the option setting for Win 10 to NOT display a file as anything but it's name?
Running around this AM with Hurricane Irma in the offing taking pics of house and grounds. My camera records a JPEG and a Raw file. When I download (to backup) the images on to my Desktop it takes Win 10 f-ing forever to stop trying to display the Raw files. Obviously I've got something set so Win 10 can't ignore the files. What?

I recently picked up a old HP psc 2510 photosmart all-in-one printer at a yard sale for 10 bucks in great condition. Problem is, it was missing all documentation and driver CD. Fortunately, HP included "in-OS" drivers for Win 7, so I was able to set it up over USB very easily. But now I'm trying to get it up and running with wireless printing, which it supports on XP, but isn't perfectly ported to 7.

Following the advice from the 4th comment on Re: HP PSC 2510 Photostmart drivers for WIndows 7 - Page 4 - HP Support Forum, I was able to connect to it via my wifi network when I plug an Ethernet cable into the printer.

Now, this works, but being a huge nerd, I think it'd be even better if I could set the printer up to be completely wireless. I'm not much of an expert on the finer workings of wireless connections, but I think it's possible to do this with an ad hoc netwrok. But I can't find any instructions for doing this on 7. Closest thing I found was this page with instructionsfor XP, which I was unable to follow on 7.

Since the printer has an on-screen option to enable or disable the "wireless radio" which can only be turned on when the ethernet cable is unplugged, I assume this functionality is to broadcast the "hpsetup" ad hoc network from the printer without it being connected to a router (since I don't think it can connect to an actual wifi network wirelessly; but if it can, it'd be great to know how to do that too!). But even when I do... Read more

A:Options for setting up a wireless printer

Instructions for creating an ad hoc network in Windows 7 can be found here:
Windows 7: How to Create an Ad Hoc Network | kombitz.com

I also wonder if maybe it has anything to do with encryption?
It seems that with the linkout you have provided with instructions
for setting this up in XP describes setting up WEP encryption connection
through the HP setup page. Wondering if the device you are making the
ethernet connection to is handing the printer an IP by checking that option in
the setup through Win7 (Automatically obtain IP address therefore it should) but check if the router is also using
WEP encyption which whilst reading the documentation seemed to be required for the printer.

Is that making sense! I'd start with that first

As I bought my laptop when I was living abroad, it has an American (I suppose) style keyboard, where (for example) the number keys 1 to 5 in Caps are marked (and produce the symbols) ! @ # $ %. Given that the laptop sits on the desk mostly, I find it a lot easier when doing emails or whatever to use a USB keyboard on my lap, but this has a UK layout, where the same keys in Caps are marked ! " ? $ % ... but produce the same symbols as the first example (laptop's own keyboard).

I don't suppose there is any way to get Windows to recognise the two different keyboard layouts, so that the USB one produces the symbols depicted on the keys? Can I remap it without affecting the laptop one? Can't work out how, if so.

Hi All,

I have had many problems since I installed Vista Ultimate, both major and minor. I have solved some and am still working on others. I won't try to adress them all now. The problem with folder view settings is one of the most aggravating, though not operationally significant. Still, it does CONSTANTLY Piss Me Off. Pardon my language, but it IS appropriately descriptive. Regardless of whatever settings I choose, the next time I go to that folder or any other, they have reverted to some set of system defaults, which I CAN'T CHANGE. Several I don't use and some I don't want or actually get in the way of what I want to do, such as "AutoArrange". (If I ever meet the person who invented "AutoArrange" I will probably be arrested for assault.)

Does ANYONE know what I can do to set my folders the way I want them and retain the settings?

Hi there. I have been trying to open Internet Explorer and it tries to open and then just closes without loading. I looked at previous posts, and I realized I cannot open Internet Options in the Control Panel either. I have tried to run the sfc \scannow and a black window opens and closes before I can read it or even see the words in the window. I have tried to run in safe mode and that does not work either. I have tried to boot in Safe Mode with Networking and it says that my internet connection is working fine (and my Mac laptop is connecting to the internet through the same connection). Also, McAfee will not load and I cannot uninstall it. I think McAfee might have it's own virus that is causing the problems. Please help!

After using the RTM build for about a week with no issues, the option to open a folder in the same window when clicked, is no longer working properly.

Now, when clicked, all folders are opening up in a new window and this is very annoying! I havent changed any settings and the folder options are still set correctly. I have tried changing the folder options to see if it would change this behaviour but it did not. What is really strange is that this also happened on my first install of Vista RTM before reinstalling this copy, after about the same time of usage-about 1 week.

Has anybody ran into this or know what is happening? I havent installed any new hardware or software and I havent tried any repairs or recovery yet. I wanted to ask before I started poking around and making any changes in the OS.

Hello,

I have strange issue with Windows 8.1 x64 Pro with Media Center. Since it was upgraded from 8, there have been issues with Software Store. Despite internet connection working fine with Firefox and other applications, Store would not connect to the internet. After long investigation I found out that Proxy server setting in Control Panel -> Internet Options -> Connections -> LAN Settings must be disabled in order to get Store working again. For some reason proxy server only stays disabled for the current session, which means when the windows is rebooted it comes back enabled again. My question is how to make it stay permanently disabled, as I don't use any proxy. Thanks.

Here's my problem with Vista.

When I go into any folder for the first time, it comes up with a set of random things to sort the folders by, and random view settings.

I want every folder to have the "details" view by default. Also, I want the tabs "Type", "Size", and "Date Modified" that I can click on to sort these, with "Type" being the default selected one.

This is how I had things in WinXP. All I had to do was click "Apply to folders" in the folder options. I do this in Vista, also, I do have "Remember each folder's view settings" checked. Yet it makes up a random set of view settings for any folder I haven't manually set myself.

So, how do I make Windows Vista stop coming up with random view settings for folders? When I click on a folder of pictures I still want it in "Details" view, with "Type", "Size", and "Date Modified" tabs. With "Type" selected as the default to sort by.

Yet, it appears in "Large Icons" view, with "Date Taken", "Tags", "Size", and "Rating" as the only sort by options.

How do I stop this madness?

This is a weird problem I've not seen before and I could use some help or someone to point me in the right direction. I searched the forum with no luck.
I'm assuming this is an issue related only to my machine and not an IE7 problem.

When I click on this link (or one in similar format on the same page), the new window will initially begin to open. Then the new browser instance is redirected to another site....which seems fine & the page switches to the new address, then suddenly the window disappears and the "File Download-Security Warning" box appears and asks if I want to save the file or find a program online to open it with:
Program Name: browserRedirect
Type: Unknown File Type
From: ax.phobos.apple.com.edgesuite.net

Clicking on "Find" takes me to the Windows File Association web page where it says that windows does not recognize this MIME type.

This is probably the wrong forum for this, but I don't know which forum I'd go to to say, "Hey, there's something I want to do, I'm wondering if there's a program for that?"

I work in sports journalism, and advanced statistics are developing quickly, allowing us to analyze more aspects of the game. Well, a couple games, but the one I'm focusing on right now is hockey.

I'm dividing labor among a few guys to watch all the games this season and record various bits of information, and I'd like to be able to retrieve these massive amounts of information.

For example, let's say Player A scores a goal, assisted by Players B and C, with Players D and E also on the ice. He scores it on the power play against Players W, X, Y and Z, against Goalie A, in the second period.

I want to record all these details every time a goal happens, and then be able to pull up details like, "How many times has Player W had a goal scored against him?" or "How many times has Player D been on the ice for a power play goal on which he did not assist?"

The details we're recording are more intricate than that, but it's basically recording a bunch of details and trying to pull them up specifically. I'm sure there's software that would do what I'm looking for, I'm just trying to figure out what software I'm looking for.

A:What program options can solve this problem?

You could use a database like Access or SQL but most people use spreadsheets and formulas.

My Issue:

As of 4th July 2009 weekend my system has been operating quirky and buggy. In my troubles I've installed Avast Anitvirus. Now around that time, one day I can recall returning to my computer and it had shutdown on its own, although my system remains on idle the majority of the week by the way. Upon turning on the computer and booted up I got a notification window stating that Windows had been updated and restarted (turned off). At that point, when attempting to open a program (by clicking on any of my icons on the desktop) the computer would quirk and reboot. After several attempts, eventually it resulted in a continuous reboot, window would repeatedly restart. If I can remember correctly, in the process I got some prompts then eventually a dreaded blue screen perhaps something about windows couldnt find or load a file, i think it had a .dll extension. Well, in conclusion, thats when I decided to perform some tech procedures, check boot sequence, BIOS, the usual troubleshooting. Threw in the Windows XP for a Install repair. After having done the XP repair option it seemed to have made progress beacause I... Read more

I downloaded a file from a bit torrent site and installed it. The file was for autocad 2006 and i thought it was safe (at least i think that was when the problem started)Now I cannot open any programs or even get my computer to start in safe mode.Norton keeps telling me that attempts are happening and giving me an address (ip addresss and net address) and telling me the attempt was blocked. This attempt happens over and over about every 5 minutes.I downloaded hijack this and deleted some files and may have deleted some that shouldn't have been deleted.I don't know if this is a trojan, malware, or spywarewhen I get online it is through norton that i can access it bc opera, firefox, and explorer won't come up.Each time i try to open a file I get an error message asking me which program to use to open it. Also, I can open files if i do so as an administrator.Can someone tell me what this might be or what to look for?ThanksJustin I am not sure if I should put a log file here but in case it is ok to post one it is attached.have run a few cleanup programs and detected a trojan and removed it by running in safe mode and running nortonI cannot run anything from my desktop and have to open everything by running it as an administrator.I also cannot run combofix because i initialize as an administrator then I get the popup that asks me over and over which program to open it with in an endles loop.I can run new logs but need to know what to do first.EDIT: Posts merged ~BP

Good morning,

I just did a Clean install of my Windows 10 Home last night after it developed several corrupt files that I couldn't repair. I previously had Microsoft Office 2013 Professional Plus on my computer but I somehow think that could have something to do with my corrupted files (not letting me utilize Windows Update successfully).

My question: Does the free 'Open Office' program have a program I could utilize to open Power Point Presentations that I had saved on an External Hard Drive? If so, it would keep me from installing Office 2013 again.

When I had Office installed I only used it for the Word Program and to open Power Point programs.

Any ideas?

Thanks and regards,
2harts4ever

If you like, you could use OPTION FIVE in the tutorial below to set the program to always run as administrator through compatibility mode for how you want to.

I was using Eudora as my main mail client for a couple of years but recently switched to Outlook Express because Eudora was getting kind of slow and causing a lot of complications.

Things seem to work OK, except a number of my incoming emails were disappearing from my inbox within a day or two of receiving them. I discovered they were being transferred to Eudora. So I uninstalled Eudora (which was listed in IE as my specified Email application).

Now I find I can't specify Outlook Express as my email application. If I open IE and go to Tools/Options/Programs and click on the email box, my only choices are Eudora (no longer installed) or IncrediMail, Microsoft Outlook and Windows Live Mail. I cannot get Outlook Express in that box.

But, Outlook Express does appear in that list as the preferred applications for newsgroups.

What's up with this? I don't want to lose more incoming emails soon after receipt to some unspecified location. I don't think Microsoft Outlook is really the same as Outlook Express. Help please.

A:Can't set correct email program in Internet Options

Hi Billcal,

its been a while since I used OE but I'm pretty sure if you open it and go to Tools -> Options, you should be able to make it your default mail program there.

Failing that, try 'Set Program Access and Defaults' which you should be able to find on your Start Menu.

Hope that helps

I have 3 HP Windows 7 64 bit computers and something happened to all 3 computers in the same week to cause all folders to be deleted from the Indexing Options program.  I noticed this because Windows Media Player would not add any new songs from MY Music folder and all the Default Libraries in Media Player said "Unresponsive".  After some research I was able to restore the correct folders to the Indexing Options program and Media Player Default Libraries no longer say "Unresponsive" and Media Player is working okay.  My question is what happened to cause all folders in the Indexing Options program to be deleted?  The only changes I remember making to each computer was to download the new Amazon Music Program and install some Windows 7 Updates.

Couple of issues here.... help!

1) When I am in Gmail (email) and want to open a word doc or excel and try to open it by a click (internet explorer) it opens of the window that comes with the computer to "buy" or ... so I have to save on the desk top, open word or excel then open the document through the software.

2) When I am in Gmail (email) and want to open a word or excel document in (Chrome) it opens a little window which ask if I want to open, save or open/save and where to save it. If I press open another window opens and ask if I want to open it now.
How can I just click on the word or excel document from gmail or anywhere and it just open up instead of opening up the program to open within?

Thank you ahead of time!
