Q: Solved: How to change the program downloaded photos goes to

Hi
I have both HP Photosmart Essentials and HP Photosmart Primier. I inadvertently checked for the Essentials to always open my photos, when I really want Primier. Where do I find that list of 'open with'? I have looked everywhere. Probably in the wrong places.
Thanks for whatever help you can give.

Preferred Solution: Solved: How to change the program downloaded photos goes to

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.)

Hello, i'm wondering if it is possible to change a open with option back to unknown application on some files. i accidentally clicked open with the picture opener and its stuck on it now. how can i revert this? step by step if possible.

Thank you.

A:How to change a file's open with program to when i first downloaded it

Go to Default Programs in Control Panel open it, select Set your Default Programs. First off you need to know the extension of this file you do not want any program to open, example, jpeg, gif..etc.. Select each program that can open this file and uncheck that extension for it, then would be back to unknown.

Hi:

Does anyone know which is the best program for correcting photos. It doesn't have to be free but then I don't want to pay an arm and a leg for it either. It must be able to resize photos because I get some of my grandkids from my son who has to downsize them. Where he lives they can only get dial up. As well I'd like to correct flaws like red eye and exposure and color--pretty basic stuff--because I like to print my own photos. Right now I'm using ACDsee 6, with photo slate and for the most part I'm happy with it except for their device dector which pops up and opens ACDsee whenever I turn my printer on or go to print photos, plug my camera in etc.--most annoying. That's why I'm willing to buy another program. Anyone have a good one? I have windows XP.

A:How to save photos that I downloaded

I don't have an external HD or use any backup or cloud service.

 
You should consider purchasing an external HD [relatively inexpensive] or a USB Flash Thumb Drive [inexpensive] to copy/paste your files to. You mention 1000's of pics so if you buy a thumb drive be sure it's of adequate size. Test it first. Everyone should have one or the other. Having both is even better.
 
Alternatively, you could perhaps, depending on your experience & comfort level, create a new partition on your hard drive that you could copy your files to. That partition would remain untouched when you reinstall windows. A popular tool for partitioning is Easeus. It's freeware, user friendly & you can get it from here: http://www.partition-tool.com/personal.htm  Last, you could start burning your pics to DVD, but it would require several Discs at the least.

Hi,
New problem for me after years of downloading photos from email to My pictures (and being automatically picked up by Picasa for viewing and editing). Yesterday when I downloaded photos from my Gmail/Comcast email account, they loaded in My Pictures as 'blank' photos in the MS-DOS application (previously, they have always loaded in JPG)! When I tried to open them, I get the "Open File-Security Warning stating that the publisher could not be verified. Are you sure you want to run this software? I am given the option to RUN or CANCEL" I, of course, have cancelled as I am not sure that I want to run a MS-DOS application.
If by publisher, they mean who sent the pictures, it is my sister and I do trust her (and the pics were scanned for viruses, etc).
What could be causing the change in application (JPG to MS-DOS) all of a sudden? I have not changed any setting in my picture programs or downloading options. Could it be some setting on my sister side (her pictures have always come thru in JPG before)?
I have no idea where to even begin looking for a solution for this (except here)! Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I am running Windows XP a1247c (Firefox as main browser-which has never been a problem).
Solution?
 

A:Photos downloaded in MS-DOS application

Do you have extensions turned on so that you are seeing the entire file name? If extensions are turned off for known file types then its easy to slip a picture.jpg.exe file into the mail and make it seem like its a jpg file because the .exe is not shown. So the first thing to do is to check or confirm that possibility.

Otherwise do other jpg files on your system still open fine? Are you trying to open the problem ones while they are still attachments or are you moving them to a windows folder first and then trying to open them?

Also, a better way to handle the process might be for both parties to use Picasa. Your sister can upload to a Web folder and then share that with you so you can download them at your leisure and there is no threat of viruses or corruption by going through email. Keep email strictly text and you won't have that problem or any worries.

I searched the site for a while and couldn't find an answer.... so I decided to post my question... sorry if this has been asked before.

Somehow every .IFO file on my computer (using XP) has been set to open with notepad as the default.... these files were from movies I've backed up to my computer, and when I burn the movies to a disc they burn properly, but then they won't read correctly when played on the dvd player. At first I thought it was just the type of discs I was using.. but later realized that the problem never occurred before I noticed all the .IFO files as default set to open with notepad.

What I need to know is how to set the properties of my .IFO files to read as Unknown application instead of Notepad.

Thanks ahead of time to anyone who can help.

hi,
when i download photos from my canon camera, they are all put in a folder that is named according to the DOWNLOAD DATE. i'd like the photos to go into folders that are named according to the SHOOTING DATES. this was the behavior of windows in the past and for some reason it changed.
can you tell me how to change this and to get the photos sorted according to the date they were taken?

can you also tell me how to number the photos continuously, instead of numbering from 1 on each new date? i'd like the photos from day one numbered 1 to 14, from day two 15 to 23, and so on.

Hi tamirhoresh

I use the following free application to organize my images as part of my workflow.

cam2pc - Image Viewer and fully featured Digital Imaging software to Download, Organize, Modify and Share your photos

It has a down loader that should work with your camera and will allow much finer control than any of the manufacturers offerings. It will even re-name your existing structure to what you decide to go with

It can actually create folders and image filenames from the files own internal MetaData.

There is a Paid version but have found that the freeware does everything I need.

It is compatible with MS photo programs but actually contains a good set of display options so may even replace them

I screwed up. Did disk cleanup and defrag as I regularly do and must have dumped something I normally don't do.
 
Symptoms:
 
Any feature of HP will no longer open, though the HP "picture" launches.
 
Behinf the picture a window opens which I can't see or drag.
 
Another window, for example, Document Viewer will open. I can drag it to view it.
 
Regardless of the viewer window, it will say the same thing (not the exact words); the feature you are trying to use is on a cd rom or other removeable disk ...
 
The same deal happens with photos I downloaded from a forum. ( I downloaded them to my newer computer and they open fine).
 
On my XP PC, if I choose an application like IrfanView it'll say "Can't read file header! Unknown file format or file not found!
 
If I try to open a photo via HP Image Zone I get "the feature you are trying to use is on a cd rom or other removeable disk ..."
 
None of my photos will open now.
 
Even though I have several System Restore dates to choose from, after it runs through restore, restarts the PC, I get a window which includes "system restore incomplete".
 
Prior to my monthly "cleanup", all was well.
 
If this is of any help. The pics I download which won't open have the IrfanView logo instead of a thumbnail. Most of those pics are posted by folks via photobucket.

A:HP Features and New Downloaded Photos Won't Open

Forgot a biggie. What started this all was I turned my PC on. As my desktop came up I had a window which was trying to load / download "Walmart Music Store Download". Something about the folder, .msi, etc not being there. I couldn't get rid of it. I could temporarily kill the process then it would come back. This was time coincident with a popup I was getting that my Windows OS might not be real. I found an online solution to disable the "Windows" might not be real popup but I don't remember how I killed the Walmart window. Years ago I did download a few music files from Walmart.

Hi, I just bought some software called Major Markup from www.usclam.com. This package creates an HTML file to be used in the "description" section of an online auction, to help make a person's auction look prettier. I wasted no time in creating my first file, and when I was done, I saved it in My Documents with a file type called MAJ. Then when I went to open the file, it asked me what program I wanted to use to view the file. I had no idea which one to use, so I just randomly chose "Paint." Then, when I went to open the file, it said that Paint does not support that kind of file type. Now, whenever I create a new Major Markup file, it's automatically saved in Paint, but Paint won't open it. How can I save this file so that Paint won't be the program used to view the file, and which program should I use? I hope this isn't too confusing.
 

A:Solved: How to change the program used to view a file

OK, if it creates an html file, then the 3 letter extension at the end should be htm or html, as in Maj.htm or Maj.html. If you actually saved it as something.maj, and asked Paint to open all Maj files, then you'll never be able to use it. Go back to where you saved the ***.maj file, and renmae it to ***.htm

see if it works now.

You may need to go into the configuration opetions of the program, and make sure you have not changed the default save as file type to this .maj file. If you have, then change it back to .htm

I've searched the FAQs and this forum but can't find an answer to this simple question. Up until recently, whenever I clicked on a PDF file in Internet Explorer the file opened immediately in Acrobat Reader (I'm using Reader 8.0). But now, all the PDFs first open the main Acrobat application and then use that to open the PDF file. Annoyingly slow and lacks all the features of the Reader.

How can I change this?

Incidentally, all the PDFs downloaded to my computer automatically open in Acrobat reader, and if I right click on a PDF in IE and save it to the desktop, it also then opens in Reader. But often, I would just like to look at the file online to decide whether or not to download it. If I right click in IE and select OPEN, the once again, the file opens the main Acrobat application not the reader.

Thanks.

I have a problem with my digital images. I took some pictures at night and it came out too dark, so I edited it in adobe anad changed the brighteness and contrast. It came out nice and clear on my computer but when i sent it to my friend it was all pixelatted and fuzzy. Is there a way of keeping the image consistent, or is there a better way of lightening up dark images.
 

A:change of color in digital photos

Many variables without seeing the image...

You could try auto levels or curves...

How much the image can be improved depends on the original capture quality...

Post it here so we can have a look if that is possible...

Hi

Trying to free up some space on the ol' computer and since I'm a gamer, I like to keep all the games I got, I have them defulted (dunno if that's just automatic) to save on the D drive, but I have plenty of space on the C drive. Is there is a way to change that setting without too much headache.

Okay, so it's for my grandma, but I can't delete anything otherwise I'll never hear the end of it, since they were all paid programs downloaded from online.

Is there a way??? Please shine the light.

Thanks

Currently having issues with recent internet download program removals.
The weather channel desktop 6 when attempting to remove in 'add or remove programs' I get the following message: wise uninstall
Could not open INSTALL.LOG file.
Another issue with:
Play 7 Wonders 2 in 'add or remove programs' the following popup appears - Fatal Error! Missing required resource!
Try to reinstall EXEtender.exe from your service providers website.
Reinstallation is not going anywhere with these two programs
Unsure where these programs came from, if they are safe downloads or what kind of junk they carry with them, but I am not having much luck in removing them.
Laptop specs as follows:
Dell Latitude D630 X-86 based PC running windows xp pro service pack 3 build 2600
Anyone know how I can get past this problem?

I tried to install the free version of Spamfighter, but when it came to activation I got a message saying it was impossible to connect to the server and to check my connections which are good. I tried another similar type program called Bullguard and got the same result. I ran anti virus programs and tried again without success. I then tried a cd burner program, and had no problem installing and running the app. I am running xp pro sp3. Any ideas?

A:Activate downloaded program

Why...did you decide to try to install malware-defense programs...at this time?

What other such programs (e.g., firewall, AV, etc.) are currently installed on your system?

What is the link from which you downloaded said program?

Can you go to Windows Update and successfully check for critical updates?

I downloaded Norton Internet Security from the Net. Tried to install it but ran into a problem so I want to do an XP Home System Restore to a date earlier than the download. Doing so will lose all the recent downloaded Internet files so I need to find the NIS download file and burn it to CD before doing the restore. The desktop icon properties show the path but Windows Explorer only shows four temporary Internet folders, I think it creates new ones for each session, and I cannot find earlier ones. I've tried "show hidden files" but without success and have run a search in Explorer as well.

Any suggestions on how I can find older downloaded Internet files?

A:Where does IE6 put the downloaded program files?

Where the download is saved depends on your browser settings and whether you selected a folder at the time.
If you can remember the name of the downloaded file (or part of it) you can do a search for that file. If you cannot remember go back to the download site and follow the links to download and at some stage the filename will be visible.

under w8.1 i haven't it
and i have never changed any settings

thanks

A:why no warning when i run a program downloaded ?

Windows 8 uses the SmartScreen filter to perform an application reputation check, and it now does system wide (not just when downloading programs with Internet Explorer like it did before).






In Windows 7 when launching these downloaded applications, you get the following notification:


In Windows 8, SmartScreen will only notify you when you run an application that has not yet established a reputation and therefore is a higher risk:


The user experience for applications with an established reputation is simple and clean: you just click and run, removing the prompt you would have seen in Windows 7.

THIS INSTALLATION PACKAGE COULD NOT BE OPENED-VERIFY THAT THE PACKAGE EXISTS AND THAT YOU CAN ACCESS IT, OR CONTACT THE APPLICATION VENDOR TO VERIFY THAT THIS IS A VALID WINDOWS INSTALLER PACKAGE

I have downloaded both program on a different computer then saved it to cd but even this did not work it came up with the same message

A:Can Not Load Program That Is Downloaded From The Net

With Vista it's a good idea to right click on the installer and select "Run as administrator".

I've installed the latest version of iTunes on several computers without any problems.
Google Earth, OTOH, fought me tooth and nail before I got it installed - not a real pleasant experience. It took a lot of googling to get it to work correctly!
