Preferred Solution: Cant change default app settings

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: Cant change default app settings

Hello, have you researched this on the forum? Questions about this have been asked so often.. the forum is a useful resource tool.

Note that you cannot change defaults from within programs- true from Win 8 on.

Please see:
Default Apps - Choose in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
Have you tried by these means?

Also note that there are special instructions about Chrome which you can find which many have had difficulties with.
Search
Chrome default browser
e.g.

Note too that a couple of old version programs e.g. Winzip if installed have caused defaults to be reset on restart.

Hope that helps and points you in the right direction.

Hello, I'm new on SevenForums and I need to help.

I was testing my Small Basic app, but when I launched it, the TextWindow font size was only 4?6 pixels.
So I launched the Command Prompt via Run, and the size was also 4?6.

In Properties, there were only 4 tabs and 9 sizes of Terminal font. The default one, 8?12, wasn't in the options.
I can show you screenshot of Properties window. (I'm using WindowsBlinds 8 with Mac skin, where active tab texture is same with inactive tab.)


How can I restore font size to 8?12?

It would be a big help for me if you post value of this:


Sorry for my English, I'm not a native speaker.

A:Can't change cmd.exe settings to default

You could try sfc /scannow and that would undo all changes/modifications, and then you could just reapply the settings in windows blinds and see if that helps.....maybe something went funky when applying the theme.

Can I change the default settings in PSP7 (and PS6) to JPG?

Now, I save something I have to stop and scroll down and pick JPG.

I looked in PREFERENCES and in the SAVE box and don't see anything.

I'd rather have it as JPG and if I want to use something else (GIF, or even PSP I can scroll to that). Since I mainly save as JPG.

A:How do you change the default settings on WORDPAD?

Nothing in the registry but there seems to be a work around.
http://www.pcworld.com/article/52364...y_to_read.html

Here is another option as well. Again it does a template but then you make a change in the registry. Quoted from this link.
http://social.answers.microsoft.com/...5-e96897329df4

Quote:




The fix is actually quite simple (if you don't mind getting your fingers dirty). The settings might be baked into wordpad (silly thing to do), but the templates-system is still there.

1. Create a template file called "New Rich Text Document.rtf " (or whatever you want the default filename to be) in C:\Windows\ShellNew\ , edit this file to your desired settings. Don't forget to save.

2. Open regedit, browse to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.rtf\ShellNew and add a new string (New -> String Value) calledFileName . Choose Modify and set Value data to "New Rich Text Document.rtf ". (or whatever your template is called)




Or you can paste the following into a pure text-file named rtf.reg. Remember to create the template...

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.rtf\ShellNew]

"FileName"="New Rich Text Document.rtf

Quick q:

How do you change the default settings in your graphics driver? I have an Intel 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family graphics driver running on a Gateway EV700 monitor.

When you go into the graphics driver properties under "color correction" where you can change the gamma/contrast/brightness settings, there is a button that says "restore defaults". Is there a way to change what these defaults are?

Help is appreciated. Thanks

A:How do you change the default graphics driver settings?

Is there a way to change what these defaults are?No. That's why they're called "defaults." Defaults are what the graphics card manufacturer says they are. Defaults are what you set back to after you mess it up trying to change it to something else.

Hey all. I realize Windows 10 defaults to last printer used and you have to turn that off in settings. That solved my problem. However, since adding a new PC to my network and using a printer as a network printer, it seems to over ride the setting and keeps changing my default printer to the last used one. Its a tiny thermal printer so this is a huge pain .

Any advice? Again I've already set my default printer and switched the last used option to "off"

Also, the new PC is running on windows 10 but does not have the option to turn off last used printer as default.

Forgive me if this has been posted, but I'm getting database errors when trying to search. I print from IE7 a LOT from a work application, and have to change the zoom to 70% and set landscape almost everytime. Anyone know of a reg hack that can set the defaults to what I need them to be?

I googled and found one:

Quote:




HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\FeatureControl

Add the following key:
FEATURE_STF_Scale_Min

In that key, add the following DWORD value:
iexplore.exe

For the value, enter the decimal value you want the zoom level to be (eg,
100).




This only works if I set it to 100%. If I try to put it at 70 (or any other value, for that matter) it defaults back to Shrink to Fit. Any help?

I'm using IE7.0.5730.13 on XP pro sp3.

I was wondering, without changing every single folder in My Pictures manually (I have many), how to change everything from showing automatically in filmstrip and picking thumbnails?

So far, I've had to go to each folder and change. Is there a way to set view for automatically viewing in thumbnails (or anything else, other this this default setting of filmstrip)?

I've tried setting the whole file at thumbnail (and other files folders that have file folders within them), but when I open a folder that I've not changed manually, it's in filmstrip.

I've even opened the options > view and can't find anything about setting the way it opens in view to thumbnails, tiles, icons, etc.

Also, some of the file folders shows some sample pictures of the file (up to four) and others are a plain file folder. How do I set, so I can see samples of the pictures within the file folder?

And is there a way to choose those sample pictures on the front of the file folder?

Just got my new Vista a few days ago, and I need some help starting up.

First of all, I'm a computer illiterate.

Basically, I have heard a LOT of horror stories from friends, families and various websites regarding how messed up Vista can get at times.

Here are my questions:

1/ I have looked around, and supposedly the best anti virus is AVAST. So I downloaded it and installed it. Now, how do I turn off Windows Live OneCare so it doesn't mess the AVAST up?

2/ How do I get rid of that little pop-up that appears whenever I want to install a new program? You know, the one that asks me whether or not I really want to run this program, and the one warning me about how I am about to use a non-Windows program?

3/ I want to be able to play .MKV files on this Vista. I usually use VLC player or Media Player Classic on my XP, but will it work here on the Vista? And if so, will it mess up the Vista?

4/ Any other changes I should make?

And while you're at it, can you please warn me about other possible Vista horrors so I can at least prepare for them?

I'm a complete computer illiterate. Please help me.

All those Vista stories scare me.

Hey flaggle and welcome to the site.

To change these default settings that microsoft antispyware will use when it resets a browser hijacking do the following:

1. Double click on the Antispyware icon to start the main program.

2. Click on tools, then advanced tools, then browser hijacker settings restore

3. You should now see a listing of default IE settings. Click on the setting you want to change the default of once, so it becomes highlighted.

4. In the lower right click on the link that says Change restore settings to a new url.

5. A dialog box will come up asking what you would like to change it to. Enter in the new url. And press the ok button.

The program will now change IE's setting to what you enter make it the default restore setting.

I have a fairly new (bought in March) Fujitsu FMV Esprimo desktop computer with English OS (yes, Windows 7) here in Japan.

It has worked ok until about a week ago. A couple of weeks earlier, my home computer (NEC LaVie C laptop with XP Japanese OS) would open gmail with html view, not standard view, and I'd always have to manually change it to standard. Now this is sporadically happening on my Fujitsu.

I cannot find anywhere on gmail or Google that describes how to make standard view my default setting, and I've scoured the Google forums to no avail. I don't even see a customer service contact link to Google or gmail.

I just ran a Malwarebytes full system scan and found nothing. I run Avast and update it every day automatically. Have found no viruses so far.

I exchange email between the Fujitsu (at work on a different email system, not gmail) and the NEC (at home where I only use gmail), and on occasion I plug in a USB flash drive at home with info from the Fujitsu, and vice versa, so it is possible there might be an exchange of malware.

(My NEC has crashed (see another thread), so I cannot access it anymore. Probably a hard drive problem, not malware-related.)

I'm thinking about trying Thunderbird; but, I have a question about where it stores user mail and settings. My user data, including mail and mail account settings, is stored on drive D for ease and simplicity when backing up user data. I can't find anything in the Thunderbird documentation that tells me how to set Thunderbird to store data at a different user-preferred location.

During the installation of Thunderbird just a few minutes ago, I told it to import settings from Eudora; but, I found later it had moved all my mail and user settings from drive D to drive C into the Users folder. This is unacceptable.

Hi,

I'm desperately trying to change the sidebar gadget to open websites by default with Mozilla Firefox (in particular, the "Ask LEO" gadget).

Firefox is my default browser. If I double-click on a .url file saved on my system, it correctly opens Firefox, and so does clicking a link in MS Outlook. Again, Firefox is default, but that's not my problem.

Somewhere I found the advice to change the "Set program access and computer defaults" settings. So I tried, but every time I change something there, it doesn't keep the setting. I click on Custom => Default Web Browser => Mozilla Firefox, click OK, get some flashing on desktop, but next time I get there it's set back to "Use current browser" again.

Anyone got the same problem? I'm using the 7100 (x86) build, but a friend of mine tried the same on the final build (x64) and he got the same problem. It's reverting all the time. Re-installed Firefox, restarted, changed/tried/reset everything I can imagine.
Please help!

Edit: It seems the problem is a Javascript-call "window.open" in the "Ask LEO" gadget. Someone knows why this call opens IE and every other call doesn't? And is there a workaround?

However, what I don't like is that by default the redirection of printers is activated. I would like to disable that for all VMs. How can I do that? I'm sure the default settings must be saved in either in a config file or in the registry but until now I haven't found out where and a search with Google didn't give any helpful links either.

Whenever I try to highlight part of a word along with another word with the cursor, Windows automatically highlights the entire word. I know this has been the default setting for a long time, but it's really getting on my nerves. If I start highlighting in the middle of a word, it's because I need to highlight starting in the middle of the word.

I know I can override this on the keyboard by using shift to highlight, but that's extremely inconvenient. Is there a way to disable it altogether? Maybe even in just individual programs (in particular, Word, at the moment)?

Hi,
Yeah, you may think this seems like just a normal message from oc'ing too much, but a problem-I haven't overclocked anything! It booted to that point, then my hard drive went mad clicking and crashed. This was after it being turned on and off to see if my graphics card was booting because I had no video, but it turned out I had just been downright stupid and plugged it into the onboard graphics. Anyone know what could have happened? Thanks

P.S. would the power drawing thing (molex on my case fan) need to have a seperate connector or just draw power from another device? Thanks.
 

A:'Previous overclock settings failed, default settings enabled'

If this happens just once then I wouldn't worry about it too much but the PSU or HDD could have something to do with it.

You can connect a molex connector fan to its own power connector or you can put it on an optical drive's connector for example, but it's ok to do either as they don't use much power.

There is a software which often changes the proxy settings so I decided to config the internet settings registry right to reject the proxy settings. But When I decided to delete this software and return the rights back, I suddenly found that I can not change
the proxy settings manually!
The detail is that I change the auto proxy url, to let my pc use a pac file and I don't want any softwares to change. However, when I decided to give the rights back and try to change the url back, it never success, and even the same when i'm sure I have
cleared this url in the whole registry, but it back, as it never changes!
I check the registry rights twice or more to make sure that the rights has given back, just like it originally should be. But it never works.
So the result is I have to clear and reinstall the WINDOWS 10 AGAIN!
Never should you save such information both in registry and somewhere I don't know! Or you should let these stuffs out of the ** registry!

I change the power option on the lid close to "do nothing". When the HDMI cable is hooked up, if the laptop is open it uses the laptop display, if its closed it displays through the HDMI/TV. This is perfect and exactly what I want.
I can watch as the monitor no problem HOWEVER, if I choose full screen, I get gray borders and the "Full Screen" is not full and just centered.

I can not for the life of me figure out why and Im going crazy.
Does anyone know why the power option would have an effect on this and what settings I could change?

Many Thanks in Advance!!!

A:External display settings change when Power options change?

Check to see what resolution your laptop's display is at, what the external TV resolution is when you connect it to your laptop, and MAYBE what resolution the videos you're watching are. This just sounds like a resolution issue. If the TV is at a larger resolution than your laptop's resolution, change the TV's resolution to the size your laptop is at. Then try watching a video to see what happens. Hope this helps.

You can go to Crucial and let them scan your computer and they will tell you how much
memory your computer should have.

You should buy your memory from the manufacturer of your computer.

(windows 7) I accidentally messed up the security settings in the "Default Folder" (a shortcut?) of the Users folder.
I removed administrators permissions , that caused my pc to be unable to restore to previous restore point correctly. However, I was able to re-add the admin permission and everything now is fine.
Yet I need help here.
1 could anyone post screenshots of the default "default folder" security settings? I need to set it back to the default one even though now it works fine.
2 why the hell does that folder NOT HIDDEN? Are yours not hidden as well? Of course the option to hide all system file is checked on my pc. The only reason I messed with that folder is because I thought it was just a normal folder and not a system folder. Anyway to get it back to be invisible?
Thanks for helps in advanced. And I don't want to go to Microsoft supports because they always give robotic replies with no helps at all.

In Windows 7, all the good icons are in %SystemRoot%\system32\imageres.dll, but we're still taken to the old SHELL32.dll when it comes time to change an icon.

Is there a registry key or something that we can change to remedy this?

I was told that there is a setting that allows you to restore " default settings" if i am a user and i downlload a program from the net . When the machine is rebooted it is gone? win2k.. We have about 400 users and they can download anything all the cute screen savers and cursors then complain about a slow machine. I realize that i am fighting this battle from the wrong end the the other end is not at my control
thanks
 

A:default settings

There are ways to restore defaults to individual applications or OS components, but I am not aware of any "global default restore" capability. The closest I know of is with XP where you can roll-back the system to a previous checkpoint if the right options are enabled. But, there is even a problem here... if you don't know what you're doing you can "un-do" legitimate changes to the system. You may have better luck by figuring out how to use "permissions" to restrict what the users can and cannot update.
