Where Is The Open File Location Key In Regedit

Where the "Open File Location" option/command in the right click menu is in regedit? I'm customizing my Windows 7 Laptop and I wan't to put an icon there. I already know how to add icons I just need the location.I tried searching for it (CTRL + F) but it wont come up. I also checked every place a command could possibly be (shell folders, shellex folders, etc.) I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit on a Toshiba Satellite A505-S6033.

Open Process File Location?
When I try to open a process file location, it won't let me. Specifically, this is winlogon.exe. I'm afraid it might have a virus, since my internet is running pretty slow and I haven't seen this process stay on the task list for as long as it is now.

Can't Open Exe Files, Such As IE, Regedit Or Cmd
Can't access exe files. "This file does not have a program associated with it fr performing this action. Please installa program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel." I found "fixes" online, but nothing helped. I can't acess regedit files, ths has dropped my acess to "open as admin" as well. The latest fix didnt work either. I changed the files to Adobe, to try to gain acess. Still a no go. I've tried in safe mode as well. IndyWolf has chosen the best answer to his/her question.Click here to view the answer that was selected.

Open Application Window At Same Location And Size Every-time
I do a lot of software development work using Notepad++ and the windows command prompt as my main tools. Everytime I open these applications, I adjust Notepad++ to take up 80% of the screen, and 20% for the command prompt to run the command line app that I'm writing.During my work, sometimes I'll minimize close/resize these windows, but I'l like them to alwasy open at the same locations and sizes not matter where they where when I closed them.

Windows 7 - Bluetooth Sent File Location

The ones I could find were sent individually and I could choose were they went, but the group sent gave me no option. Where on the PC I can find these pictures?

SSD And Hibernation File Location?
I have a Quad system running Windows 7 Home Premium that is OverClocked and will not work with the Sleep function but works just fine with Hibernation. Now that SSD drives are becoming more affordable has anyone come up with a way to move the Hibernation file to a different physical drive. Based on the number of Googles I've seen this appears to be a common issue.

File Refers To A Location That Is Unavailable?
I have more than a 100GB of video files in wmv format on my Windows 7 partition. When I tried to look for it the other day, the folder /Users/kl/Videos/Logitech Webcam/ was no longer there. But when i searched for "wmv" it showed up in search, then then I clicked open location, it said that the location is unavailable. I know that the files are still on the disk because I have 370GB on that partition, and only 90GB is free. This was the same as when I could still access those video files so they could not have been deleted. How can I gain access to these files again? I have already tried all the instructions on this page

Change USER And Programs File Location?
I performed a successful clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. I installed the OS to a 100gb volume with the intention of using that only for the OS. I, without thinking, allowed the setup to name that drive C. Further, without noticing I allowed the Programs folder and the Users folder to go into this volume. I intended for everything but the OS to go into a large second file named E. My thinking is that the only way that I can fix this situation is to do a new clean install and get it right this time (as much as my limited knowledge will allow. how to rectify this. ntel e6600 Core 2 Duo @ 2.4 GHz Noctua NH-U12P CoolerASUS P5QOCZ Reaper 2X2GB DDR2 800 (PC 6400) EVGA GeForce 8800GTS 640 MB WD 250GB GB SATA II Corsair CMPSU 550W

Hosts File Alternate Location Is Not Recognized?
I have tried to move the hosts file location by changing the registrykeyHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesTcpipParametersDataBasePathto the desired folder location.However, it appears that this key is somehow ignored by my system (Windows 7 64 bit) and the default location%SystemRoot%system32driversetc is still the one where the hosts file is read.I notice it because any changes made to the hosts file in the default location are detected (I check it with the ping command) and any changes to the new location are simply ignoredI have copied and pasted the hosts file with different values between the default and new folder, so I guess it is not a problem with the hosts file having the wrong format. I also copied and paste the new folder path to the registry key so it is also not a problem of having misspelled the folder path, either. I also restarted the computer after changing the registry key.

Windows 7 Swap/page File Size And Location?
just built a new i7-930 and installed Windows 7 Professional. With older versions of Windows I was told to put the swap file on another drive and to have the begining and ending sizes the same. Does this theory still hold true for W7? Looking for advice, I have 6GB of Ram on an Asus Rampage II Extreme MB.

Default "Browse For File" Location In Web Browser "choose File" Box
how can I change this?

I believe the location is causing crashes, since I blew up lots of Library registry values (in an attempt to remove them from the OS), and I think it defaults to the library page.

eg, 2shared - file upload and sharing [edit: stupid editor auto href'd the text... bah]

crashes IE and Firefox (not Chrome for some reason... possibly because it uses its own code?) when I click the browse button (same for any "browse" button that spawns a native find-your-file thing).

It may be something else, but anyway...

edit: If I disable "Expand to Current Folder" in Win Explorer, the crash does not occur. So perhaps it is trying to expand to a folder that is broken?
I want to keep "Expand to Current Folder" on, though, as I like the feature.

Can't Move WindowsImageBack Or System & User File To A New Location
I originally backed up my System & User files using the Backup utility in Tools to a slave drive. That drive was full so I purchased a larger capacity drive and installed it in place of the original slave drive.

I copied over my data but have been unable to copy the file original "Backup" file (shows "0" bytes & empty) I created.

I also had a "WindowsImageBackup" folder (160GB) that had folders and files in it that I have also not been able to copy to the new slave drive.

I am saving my old "Slave" drive so I assume I can use it to restore my original image I created, eyh?
