Preferred Solution: Attempting to open a file in 'Documents' in 'File Explorer

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: Attempting to open a file in 'Documents' in 'File Explorer

It means Windows does not think you have the authorization to open that file. Try right clicking on it and selecting Open as Administrator.

When i attempt to open a Microsoft Power Point file (.PPT), i receive the following error message:"Sorry, the file cannot be opened because part of the file is missing."
How to stop this error?
 

A:PPT: "Part of File is Missing" Error Attempting to Open File

It means the file is damaged or corrupt. Is it saved on a USB drive, or on the computer hard drive? if it's on a USB, then the file wasn't properly closed before the USB was removed. If it's saved to the hard drive, then the file is damaged.
You can try opening PowerPoint, then clicking on the file you want to open and dragging and dropping it into PowerPoint.

Pic related when I try to open IE 11 and only IE 11.
Run IE
After I select IE in the "How do you want to open this file?" menu , it brings up the view downloads. After I run the iexplorer.exe, I can use IE 11.
Also I've ran MBAM, adware cleaner, and windows defender. So I'm pretty sure it's not a virus.
Also if I open it in chrome, it gives me a download for iexplorer.exe which downloads instantly.
Unchecking "Use this app for all .exe files" does nothing.
I tried forcing it into desktop mode which didn't help
I tried the other modes which didn't help either.

It's just kinda annoying. Can't find anything on google about it except one small forum with no answers.

If you right-click the file while in My Documents and choose Open With it gives the error that the file can not be found or it is corrupt.
If you Open Excel first and navigate to My Documents then the file will open.

I first thought it was the file association. I checked that and restored the default setting for the xls file extension. I tried to repair office. I tried to uninstall Excel and reinstall. Nothing works.
Can anyone help me out here.

Click Tools --->Options --->General then uncheck "Ignore other Applications"

If that doesn't work you can try to unregister and re-register Excel by entering the commands below into your RUN prompt. This will re-write some registry values that may have been corrupted

Click the Windows START button and select RUN then type each of the following commands one by one (you may need to change the path below to reflect the true path to your Excel.exe file)

Is there a way to add multiple documents (meeting notes) to ONE tab & organize them in TILE fashion according to date.
Also to be able to view the corrupted documents file with having errors to open the document ? 

A:view the corrupted documents file with having errors to open the document

OneNote is an electronic notepad and similar to the a notepad you will be unable (unfortunately) to automatically merge meeting notes.  But alas, you can select all text (CTRL+A) from the source One tab and Paste (CTRL+V) to the target One tab.I do believe that you can tile the tabs by dragging them into the desired locations specific to your organizational requirements.

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

I saw your post right after you made it but I did not post a reply because:
1) Real life got in the way
2) I'm not sure that I understand your issue.
I'm not picking at your English, but this is important:

Your post mentioned, "another file is opens with that".

I'm guessing that you meant:
...another file is opened with that
or
...another file opens with that

Either way, the word open is really important to the description of your problem.

Let's just talk about Word for now.

When you open a Word, one or more temporary files may be created. This is normal and desired; but those temp file(s) should not automatically open in Word.

Please try this:
Close all copies of Word.
Open Windows (file) Explorer.
Double click on an existing Word document.

How many windows do you have open for the Word program?
(Hopefully, just one.)

How many files do you have open in the Word program?

A:How do I set file explorer to open to certain path?

Edit the shortcut properties (right click the icon, then right click the File Explorer shortcut, and choose Properties) to change the Target parameter to the directory you desire. You can get the directory easily by navigating to it normally in explorer, then copying it from the address bar.

Personally, I was not able to edit the Target parameter of the default File Explorer shortcut that is pinned to the Start Bar.

So you can create a new shortcut that points to explorer.exe followed by the directory that you want it to open to, such as "explorer.exe c:\games" (without the quotes.) or by adding the desired directory to the Target parameter of the new shortcut.

You can also create a shortcut to the folder you want opened by navigating to that folder, right clicking, and choosing Send To >> Desktop (Create Shortcut).

Then in either case, you can rename the shortcut and change its icon to be anything you want including the explorer.exe icon, and pin it to the Task Bar or Start menu.

I recently installed windows 7 on an older e machines T5216 running XP. I used PCMover to move my applications and settings, so at first, it was a clean 7 install.

After all was done, I noticed I could not open a file location neither from the right-click menu nor the properties dialog.

I have found and tried many linkfix registry hacks, with no real success.

I have discovered that if I end the explorer.exe process from the task manager and then run it from there I can TEMPORARILY right-click and open file location and it works! As soon as explorer begins doing whatever secondary tasks it does when started I lose the ability to use open file location.
I have tried using the built in hidden admin account, a new user, etc. All have the same issue.

I have run sfc /scannow multiple times with admin privs.

Not sure what is going on nor what to try next.

Reading from your responses again, I have also checked the start up programs but wouldn't know who the culprit is, if that is the case. So, please help, if you can. Thanks.

Kind Regards

Weird issue with Acer CB280HK 4k Monitor
So, I was lucky enough to get a new monitor and new pc the other day; a dell xps 8700, and for purposes of this discussion, the video card set up is a intel hd graphics 4600 board, and a Nvidia GTX745, with 4 gigs of ram. The monitor is a 4k capable monitor, and to get the full res, its plugged in via a display port connector, into the intel board, since the nvidia card does NOT have a display port connector, only hdmi, which would limit the res to 1920x1080.
Anyways, the monitor is fantastic, and things are so clear and bright it blows my mind!
Problem is, ever since connecting it, for some crazy reason, I can NOT get my control panel to open, my file explorer to open, or adjust some of my desktop properties...EVERYTHING else works great, but those things no longer work..
Weird thing is, if I downres to 1920x1080, I can get the file explorer to work, but thats about it..
I ended up downloading MulitCommander Pro, which is an alternative file manager, and it works just fine.
I am on windows version 10547, Home version..

All these things worked perfectly with my old monitor, connected via [email protected], so I dont think anything serious is wrong, but I cant figure out why these built in windows core items wont open up when the res is at 3840X2160.
Hopefully, a new insiders version might help. but otherwise I am stumped.

Thanks for any he... Read more

A:cant open file explorer, control panel...

So basically, when you have the monitor with the high resolution connected, explorer.exe is not opening. It starts working again, once you lower the resolution to 1920x1080px or less.

Is there an error message? What happens, when you click a shortcut to start Windows Explorer? Really nothing?

If you check the system logs in the Control Panel > System and Security > Administrative Tools > View Event Logs, do you then have anything useful in there? I guess there should be at least something...

under Favorites I had a download folder and now it is gone.

Please tell me how to get it back under where it says Favorites. It did read Favorites, Desktop, then I think Downloads, Recent Places, then Sky Drive.

I still have yet to install or keep Adobe Flash Player screen from popping up. I'm sure the Adobe question should be posted someplace else.. Sorry

I got a new computer with Windows 7 Pro 64 bit and I find it very annoying that in all the Open File dialog boxes and even Windows Explorer there does not seem to be a selection under the View menu to show thumbnails of image files. Even when I select Contents and highlight the file it still only shows a generic icon. Can anyone please tell me if there is a way to fix this?

Thanks for any help

A:No Thumbnails in Open File Dialogs or Windows Explorer - Why??

Hello David, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Double check using the tutorial below to make sure that you have thumbnail previews enabled.Thumbnail Previews - Enable or Disable
If you do, then double check to make sure that you have Windows Photo Viewer set as the default program with all of it's associations.Default Programs - Set a Program's Default Associations

Hi all, can't seem to find anything relating to this issue but feel free to send link if already discussed..

On my Outlook 2003 (Yes I know!), I often add/remove my pst archives via File>Data File Management.

The 'Open' dialog opens and defaults to the 'C:\Users\myname\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook' folder. Because we keep our PST files on the server and not in this local location I have a shortcut in this folder that links to the server folder.

Since upgrading to Windows 10, when I go to add my PST it takes me to this local folder but the shortcut to the server folder isn't there. At the bottom of the Open box if I change the Save As Type to All Files (*.*) then I can see the shortcut to the network folder but when I double click on it, it complains because I haven't clicked on a PST file.

Would anyone have any idea why this is happening and a possible solution please?

Thanks
John

Could you provide a screenshot? Does the short cut have a proper icon to indicate its associated with Outlook or is it a default icon.

I have a laptop with Windows 8 and Word 2003 installed.
When I double-click on a .doc file in File Explorer, a warning window comes up that asks whether or not I will allow a program to make changes to my computer. When I click yes, Word 2003 opens, but the file does not open. There is a warning message that says that there was a problem sending the command to the program.
If I then click file-open, I can go to the file that I was trying to open from File Explorer, and the file will open normally.
How can I fix things so that I can open .doc files from File Explorer?

A:.doc files will not open in Word 2003 from File Explorer

Verify that the file association for .doc uses Word as default.
