Change PDF Viewer Used To View Files?

Jan 28, 2014

If I download a .PDF document and then open it from the browser (Chrome) downloads area, the PDF is opened using the inbuilt Windows 8 PDF viewer in the Metro interface. I would like to change that so I can open it using a PDF viewer of my choice (say Nitro for example) and preferably on the desktop instead of metro.

how to do that?

Apps / Software :: Windows 8 Not Saving Autorotate Of Images In Gallery / Viewer Apps?

Nov 5, 2012

i had a bunch of images of a chest of drawers i wanted to sell. On my windows 7 PC all the previews showed the images sideways (landscape when they needed to be viewed in portrait). this is not a problem - expected behavior.

On the windows 8 PC all the images appeared portrait and in the correct orientation. images looked perfect. i understand that windows 8 reads the exif data and autorotates the images on previews and in the galleries. a neat trick.

On the windows 8 PC i put an ad on the website that i wanted to sell the drawers, and when i selected the images they previewed portrait in the file browser too. when uploaded the images all came out sideways (landscape) on the website.

this might seem like user error or a rudimentary problem at first, and trust me i have many years as a system admin under my belt, it is going to cause many problems of a similar nature for every user that touches it.

Windows 8 leads you to believe that your images are correctly oriented firstly, and then does not provide an easy way to adjust and save them even if you do know that they need to be adjusted. even in the windows photo viewer on the desktop (non metro viewer) you can rotate an image as much as you like with the buttons and it will not auto save it like it does in Win7.

In Win7 you could see that the image needs adjustment and its a good prompt for you to action, so you open it, rotate it, and it is automatically saved by the photo viewer so then whatever you do with it, it will be oriented correctly.

what i find absolutely crazy is that windows knows the image needs to be rotated, but does not save the image after it autorotates it, so it lulls you into a false sense of security.

Apps / Software :: Windows 8 Upgrade - Can't View Installed Bing Apps

Aug 19, 2013

My upgrade from 7 Pro to 8 Pro was smooth.

I tried to use location on the Bing weather app and it was over 100 miles out. Couldn't figure out how to solve this so uninstalled it.

Then I did something obviously stupid, I did a restore. I thought that by 'all apps' WIndows 8 did not mean programs, but it evidently does (a slight rewrite would make that clearer to those of us who don't identify all apps as including programs).

Ok, I had to reinstall programs, a nuisance but that's all. However, all my Bing apps are now gone.

They appear in 'Your apps' in the store as in my computer named DOUGW-PC but a search doesn't find them. Reinstalling doesn't do anything either. I can install new apps and they show up fine.

Sep 6, 2013

In windows 8.1 start screen, if I go to the all apps view & sort by category, the first category is 'desktop'. What determines which apps are listed here? Only some of my desktop apps are listed. Can I edit the list? Likewise, if I sort by name, the first group of apps includes only a subset of all my apps - can I edit that list?

Apps / Software :: How To Associate All Photos With Windows Photo Viewer From Desktop App

Oct 24, 2013

First I thought it was slow. Then I got tired of waiting and figured out how to associate all my photos with the windows photo viewer from the desktop apps like I was used to with Windows 7

However, I would like to give it a fair chance to work. So, I am posting here.

When I click on the photo app, it shows some folders, sometimes it kicks me back to the desktop before I can click anytime. Other times, it may show a photo for a few seconds before kicking me back. Either way, this is not acceptable.

The app is not closing. It is still running because if I click the left corner, I see it and can access it again, if over for a second.

Is this experience common. I have had my windows 8 pc a week and I switched over to windows 8.1 about two days after I initially got it setup. I am a very experienced Windows 7 user. I am trying to be open minded about this new operating system.

Apps / Software :: Windows 8.1 Forgets Thumbnail View In Explorer

Dec 24, 2013

My Windows 8.1 64 bit started forgetting the view settings from a folder.So if I go in a folder and I set it to List-View for example,whenever I close that folder and I reopen it the view is set automatically to Details view.And this applies to every folder in my computer except Desktop.It drives me crazy,especially in my pictures folders.

Also with this problem another one came.I can't set a program to open some files,so the file associations for some files is broken. For example i can't set qTorrent to open torrent files.It just won't open them and the files apear as white documents just like I hadn't had a Torrent program installed already.I find it weird that both problems appeared together.

I previously had to reinstall windows on my machine,because of this problems.It worked normal at the begging,but today these problems appeared again.I tried scanning SFC Scan with no result.

Update:I also just discovered that Metro apps are not working anymore...what the heck its wrong with my windows.

Upgraded To Windows 8 Pro - Cannot View Personal Files In New Apps Screen

Jan 3, 2013

I've upgraded from Windows 7 PC to Windows 8 Pro (not clean install) today and I can't now view my personal files in the new apps screen. E.g If I go into the photo app it says there are no pics available. I thought I'd lost the data but when searching around I noticed a folder had been created on the new desktop which was the same name as my PC name in Windows 7. Clicking into this folder took me to Users folder -> and my folders which contain all the music and photo files etc.

If I launch Explorer, On the left hand side of the Explorer screen (where it displays the Library docs) I am unable to select any of these or drag files to these from the folder described above. Also, when connecting my iPhone, it asks if I want to import my pics. I know all of these have already been imported but it doesn't recognise this and tries to import them all again, I assume into the new location in Windows 8.

Is this something to do with permissions. I've used my hotmail account to set up as a new Windows 8 profile and this has Admin rights. Or do I physically have to copy he data to the new location where personal library files are held in Windows 8.

Maintenance :: File History Only Copied / Backed Up Some Of Data?

May 31, 2013

I enabled File History, and when I returned to my computer this morning I found that it had created copies of 1.14TB of my 1.19TB of data on the backup drive I had specified. However, it seems like the process has stopped, as every time I click the "Run Now" button, no new data is copied. The file size of the folder on my backup drive is still 1.14TB. Is there anything I can do to ensure that File History backs up / copies all my data?

Setup Installation :: Clean Install Win 8 On SSD Remains At 0% Files Copied / Redundancy Cyclic Error

Jan 5, 2013

I can't get Windows 8 installed.

I have a new intel build with a brand new kingston hyperx SSD. I get through to selecting a drive to install Windows and have tried

1. Using the single unallocated drive
2. Creating new partition unformatted (this creates 2 partitions for me. A system and a primary)
3. Formatting the new primary partition (which always fails)

With option 1 it remains at 0% files copied on next screen and goes to "could not format partition... error code 0x80070057"

Option 2 AND 3 yield the same error.

When attempting to clean the disk through cmd prompt using "Clean" in Diskpart, I receive a "redundancy cyclic error"

Asus P77V LX
Intel 3570k
Kingston HyperX 120GB
Kingston HyperX 2x8GB 1600MHz
Windows 8 System Builder DVD

I have previously been running windows 8 dev edition on a 32 bit drive but need to upgrade.

Network / Sharing :: OneDrive Sharing - Delete Copied Photos From C Drive?

I want to backup my photos from my computer's D: drive to OneDrive. But when I start to upload them, it says those photos are also available offline. That means, all photos uploaded from my D: drive are also copied to my C: drive. But it wastes my space on the C: drive. All my settings are set to upload photos with online access only. I tried to delete the copied photos from my C: drive but it also deleted them from OneDrive. Is it possible to upload only to OneDrive without copying the photos to C: drive?

Win 8 Photo Viewer Gone

Nov 14, 2013

Before upgrading to 8.1 I had a cool Photo Viewer. It was the default viewer so I do not have an app name.

When I selected Photos from the main Start screen, there would be 10 to 15 photos on the screen at the same time and different sizes (large thumb nail). Plus the photos changed individually in a random way. Selected photos randomly from different folders. Very cool.

After upgrading to 8.1 all I get are full screen individual photos in a slide show format.

Is there an app that I should download or am I missing something?

Where Can Find Windows Explorer In Event Viewer

Jan 1, 2014

I started up my computer and Windows explorer randomly froze up and hung. I didnt do anything to provoke it. I just sat here waiting for my computer to boot up.Then when I thought it was finished I opened firefox. Then Windows explorer just freezes completely. I tried doing windows key + r. It opened the run window but it froze. Then I tried moving my mouse on the right to open up the charm bar, ( I think it's called that) to hit settings and then restart. When I clicked settings the whole bar just closed out and would close out every time.

I right clicked on the task bar to try and open task manager. When I clicked on task manager it wouldn't ever open. So I couldn't even shut down properly. I just pushed the power button. Then I turned it on again and the same exact thing happened.So I shut it off again.

Then I turned it back on and went to msconfig before it froze up and I set it to boot into safe mode.Then I got into safe mode and ran a malware bytes scan and an avast scan. Nothing came up on either so I just went back to normal boot. The problem stopped now but I want to know what caused that whole thing to happen because it hasn't happened to me before.So I want to look at event viewer to see if that'll explain it. Where would I find that at in event viewer?
