Set Default Folder When Opening Up Office Files?

May 13, 2012

I would like to know how I can set up a default folder in windows 7 when opening up Office workbooks. If I open up Excel 2010, It defaults to to My Documents. However, if I click on a folder "Fixed Assets" to open up a workbook, Excel looks at the latest folder when wanting to open up further files. I want Excel to always default to My Documents

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.

PC Indexes DVD Before Opening Folder To View Files?

May 16, 2012

I have several DVD's with 60,000 files on them. (these come from a vendor) When I try to open them it takes an hour before I can view the files. I think it is because it tries to index the DVD before it opens. If we open it on an XP computer, it just opens.

Suspicious Temp Files In Default 'Downloads' Folder

Sep 6, 2012

Recently I've noticed that some '.tmp' files have been created in default 'Downloads' folder of Win7 which is located at 'C:UsersUSERNAMEDownloads'. Here's a pic:

I don't use the default downloads folder for storing my downloads and I have configured all my browsers to save files to another location. But since last month, I noticed these small ".tmp" files being created in default downloads folder. I've been using Win7 Ultimate for almost 3 years now and I've never encountered this before. Or is there any way that I can see what program has created these temp files.

BTW, I use multiple browsers, Firefox, Chrome, Opera and sometimes IE8. I'm pretty sure it's not IE8 and Firefox coz I've been using them for a long time and they've never created temp file in 'Downloads' folder. I've recently installed Chrome and Opera and right now Chrome is my default browser. I went and cleared all my browsers' cache files using their own method withing the browser, but they are still there. Really annoying. I know I just can delete them, but I want to know which program has created them.

Importing Template Files From Office 2003 To Office 2010

Mar 10, 2012

Having upgraded my desktop PC to Office 2010, I need to import three seperate letter template files for use in Word. These were lost during the upgrade but are on my laptop, which still runs Office 2003, as .dot type files and I also have them copied to a memory stick. However, I am at a loss as to how and where to save them into the new programme on my desktop PC. If it makes a difference, I should add that I do not use Libraries and have disabled them.

Office 2010 Read Only When Opening Documents

Feb 16, 2012

This is a on and off thing, but when we open a document on a users personal drive (which nobody else has access too), it opens as read only and they cant make changes/save the file.Selecting "notify" when the document is ready to be edited doesnt respond.Document has no read-only attribute, nor does the folder level they have full access to it.This particular user is connected via wireless but the issue occurs on desktops aswell.We have tried restarting the computer and ending the process.Also closed the document via server but she still receives read only error.The weird thing is, if the document is closed and opened 2-3 times on the 2nd or 3rd time it will be in editing mode.

I now have a new problem, before I managed to open 2007 files by opening Office 2010 and then from inside the application choosing to open a file.

How do you get Office 2010 to open all the Office 2007 files such as word, excel etc?

since I installed SP1 for Office 2010 I have problems with opening some (not all!) older Word documents created with Word 2003 (*.doc). I get a message that Word can't read the document and it is probably corrupt.On a other client (same OS, Office 2010 without SP1) I can open the same document without difficulty.

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..

Windows 7 X64 Computer Slows Down On Opening MS Office 2003 Stuff

Jun 12, 2010

Whenever I open anything from microsoft office 2003, that can be outlook, that can be a word document, that can be a powerpoint presentation or an excel sheet, my windows 7 taskbar and the computer in general slow down considerably, but expecially the taskbar lags for at least 3 seconds whatever I do (like moving the pointer over several icons so that the aero-thingy shows up takes 5 seconds to pop up the little windows or opening a new explorer window). So when did it all start? At first everything was fine, office 2003 was running fine with w7x64, then I installed the cisco system vpn client (64bit of course) because i need it for university. After that the problem occured and I haven't been able to make it go away since then.

1. I uninstalled the vpn client -> no changes
2. I uninstalled office 2003 and reinstalled -> no changes
3. Office is updated with the latest patch -> no changes
4. I tried to turn of aero (who knows?) -> no changes

System in general:
CPU: Core i7 920
Memory: 6 gig ram 1333 tripple channel
HDD: 640gb western digital aals
PSU: Enermax modu 82+ 625w
Graphic: Geforce gtx 260

Office 2010 Runs Product Configuration When Opening Word And Excel

Oct 20, 2011

Just started using a new workstation with Office 2010 installed by OEM. Everything worked fine for a few days, and then every time i attempt to open a Word file or Excel file i get the MS Office dialog box that states "please wait while windows configures Microsoft Office 2010". The dialog box stays visible for 30-45 seconds and then the program opens and works fine.

Ran a repair, four times, didn't fix it.

All of my research leads me to a solution of uninstalling and re-installing. I'm not buying that if everything worked fine for several days, that a bad install will make the program stop functioning properly.

I also noticed, while visiting help within outlook, that the product was still a trial version and not currently activated. I have entered the activation code numerous times with no luck.

Default Fonts In Office 2010?

Oct 15, 2012

My computer has Windows 7 Home Premium Operating System, 32 bit system type and I use Office 2010. Microsoft Office 2010 has an embedded default font "Calibri" which I do not like. I go through the motions of changing the default using the "Options" section in all Programs, i.e. Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, OneNote, etc. Most of the time whatever font I set as default in each program it changes back to Calibri after exiting. I changed the file to reflect my new font. I even deleted Calibri from the Fonts directory in Windows 7 but it still shows as the default font. How can that be? It was DELETED !!! Is there a way to change the default font once and for all?
