How Do I Set Default Program For Opening A Folder ?

Jul 19, 2009

I read somewhere how you can choose the default program to open a folder with, but now I cannot find it again, and I also cannot find how to do this.

I had done it and changed the default file manager, but I want to reverse the change. I can't get to a window or dialog box that lets me change the file types windows displays, or that lets me edit the default program when I click on a folder icon.

.exe Program Files Opening With Microsoft Word By Default?

Jul 15, 2010

I recently ran into an issue where this installation on Windows 7 Pro 32-bit is trying to open up all my programs in Word, they all have the MS word icon as well, so for instance, when I click on Nero, it will try to open it up in word and we get an error because it is not a word file. This is on all Program .exe files. There are no options to change the file association in the default programs in control panel. I have only seen a few fixes for this which involve the registry, I have checked these, however, all registry keys are correct. System restore fails as well, have tried multiple restore points to no avail. We have also ran norton, and malwarebytes on the system is it runs clean.

Reset WMP 12 Default Size And Position?

Apr 10, 2011

I've been looking to Reset the default windows size and position of WMP12 (in the Center of the Screen without Maximizing) the way it is used to be when we launch the WMP12 after a fresh install of Win 7. I know there might be some way to reset it's default size and postion from Regedit (Just like we can reset the Internet Explorer size and position by deleting 1 binary value from HKEY User/Software/Microsoft/Internet Explorer etc. )

Changing The Default HD?

Apr 28, 2011

I have a 64 gb ssd, which I use as the boot drive, and a 1tb hd I want use as a game/data drive. Most programs would ask where to install or you can choose a 'custom install.' However, there are a few which automatically start installing on the default/boot drive without making a user inquiry. This PC is my first build, but I'm thinking that boot problems are usually solved through bios, while program installations problems are solved through the OS. I've tried disk management, i.e. an unsuccessful attempt to change disk 0 to disk 1 and vice versa, but to no avail

FireFox Keeps Opening Up In Alternative Default Page?

Dec 13, 2011

I don't know why this is happening! My Mozilla Firefox (newest version) since yesterday keeps opening up in a default homepage (bankofamerica) and I don't even use Bank of America~! When I go to change it to use it a different default page, it sets it as the different page (or even default) but then when I reopen FireFox, it goes back to the default B of A page.

I ran virus scanner and windows defender and there appears to be no virus or anything wrong with my comp in regards to that..

Changing Default Save Locations For Everything?

Oct 28, 2011

How to I change the default save location of any saved file from C drive to D drive?How to delete current user and program folders on my C drive? Info:I am trying to tidy up my computer and need some assistance with default save locations.I have 2 drives, A 60gb SSD (c:drive) and 1TB standard HDD (d drive). I have my OS on the C drive. I currently have 12gigs of information between two default folders named programs and user. Also when I download, files automatically go to c drive/users/andrew, I get no say in the choice, I want all files going to D drive.All I want to do is remove them from my C drive and have the default locations for any file saved to be to the D drive. This is because I only want select programs, i.e the ones I use regularly to be be on the much faster SSD c drive.[CODE]

Sep 10, 2009

A few days ago I decided to install windows 7 7100 on my newly built desktop, unfortunately a day later i get an error called 651, i looked around and found out that it is a bug so i am resorting to a more stable os (vista...but only for now) and i am trying to boot it from daemon tools becuz my dvd copy has trouble booting, but every time i try to install it, it keeps trying to install the OS on my system partition and gives me an error that says there is not enough space available.

So my question is, how can i change the default drive letter that windows 7 gives to Daemon Tools?

Default Printer Not Changing With Network

Oct 22, 2009

So, I have several different printers set up for different wireless networks that I connect to; the only problem is that Windows never refreshes or updates my default printer when I connect to a different wireless network.

If I go into the "Manage default printers" and click the network and printer combination (stored in the saved list below) and then click "Update" it will successfully update my default printer to the one it should be. However, that's kind of a pain to have to go through several menus just to update my default printer--it would be faster to do it the old-fashioned way (right click the printer and click "set as default printer").

Any ideas on why this isn't updating correctly--I haven't yet seen it update since setting up my default printers. Or, should this go in a different topic than Networking & Sharing?

Changing Default Install Path

Aug 21, 2011

I find it folly to install my applications on the C drive, especially the larger applications. Doing so makes the C drive so large that it is cumbersome to make the image backups that I think are necessary to insure an easy recovery from any problem causing a failure to boot. In WinXP, there is an easy way to change the default install location by changing ProgramFilesDir at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows Current Version. I changed that to a specific folder on my D drive and have used that for the last 8 years with no problem. It appears this registry key is only used by install programs to let them know where you want your programs installed.I really miss this wonderful feature in windows 7. Actually windows 7 has the same registry key, but unfortunately it does not seem to be used for the same purpose. I'm not sure exactly what it does, but at least for some programs, Windows seems to use it as a path to find the program when it is to be executed. Of course that would make little sense because there would be no way to actually change the key without breaking something. (What sense is there in having a registry key that can't be changed?). I have tried changing this key on two different systems and eventually it did lead to problems on both systems. So now I'm back to laboriously changing the path from C:program files or C:program files (x86) every single time I install an application (which it turns out I do quite often).

Is it possible that a script could be developed to search for C:program files or program files(x86) in an edit box and replace it with my preferred path with a single hot key? That would at least take most of the drudgery out of it, although it would still require choosing the "custom" install on many applications, not to mention the occasional errant applications that always install to the default install path with no chance for user intervention.

Changing X64 Default Installation Folder(s)?

Feb 5, 2012

I just upgraded from 32 bit to 64 bit windows 7, I have two harddrives, a 40 gig for my os (C and a 1 tb for everything else (D. That's how it was on the 32 bit system, but now on 64 bit, there are more folders to mess with (Program Files and Program Files x86). How do I tell windows to install to the bigger D: drive and not fill up my small C: drive? Also, the programs that were already installed on my D: drive, will they need to be moved to the x86 folder, reinstalled, or can I continue to run them from their current location?

Stopping Programs From Changing My Default Application

Aug 16, 2009

I am a big fan of user account controls in Vista and Windows 7.

I would like to know how I can stop any and all newly installed programs from being able to change or affect my default programs.

I build and maintain computers and once I have installed and set up a new system I don't want any program to change my default programs. Not even win media player or Internet explorer if they update themselves.

Does that make sense.

I use GOM as the default media player and firefox as the default browser. But sometimes if there is a system update for media player, internet explorer or even iTunes and quicktime these programs sometimes after the update change my default programs.

Once I have finalized my install and set up my preferences how can I lock down the default programs permanently?
