Apps / Software :: How To Trigger Open With Dialogue For Extensions

Aug 25, 2014

During my everyday computer use i not only view, but actually edit content. Having a file type associated by default with a viewer/player application is very counter productive for me at times, because i have to use the right click menu every single time if i want to open a file for editing.

So, is there a way to always trigger the "open with" dialogue for certain extensions? I tried removing file association defaults for .jpg files to see if that produces the effect i was looking for, but i can't, i can only change the default association, but not remove it, which is not what i am looking for.

Debugging :: Windows 8.1 - BSOD Appearing Often / No Particular Trigger For It

Aug 2, 2014

I just formatted & installed Windows 8.1 on my laptop. I'm getting a lot of BSODs.

All of them "Critical Structure Corruption", can't quite pin-point anything specific. I've been installing some programs I use, etc.
Just now - it actually BSOD'ed while I was running the SF Diagnostic tool!

I have an Acer Aspire 5820, Core i3.

Reset (Warning) Dialogue Box

Feb 16, 2013

I don't know if Windows 8 no longer includes this or I somehow check the checkbox to never show this message again. However when ever I go to delete a file it automatically move to the recycle bin without asking me if i'm sure. I'm pretty sure windows 7 used to do that, and I don't remember checking the check box in Windows 8.

Can Change Where Dialogue Windows Opens

Jul 4, 2013

I have a windows 8 desktop computer with 2 monitors attached. I can span the desk top across both screens. I use this for document editing, picture file, etc. No gaming. When I span a program across the 2 screens (say Xn View for my pictures) if a dialogue window comes up (say to save a picture), it usually comes up right in the middle of the desktop which is where the two screens meet. This makes it a little difficult to read and I end up dragging it to one side.

Can I change where these dialogue windows come up? I really don't care which monitor they are centered on, just as long as they don't span the middle where the screens come together.

Unreadable Font In Windows 8 For System Dialogue

Jul 21, 2013

I don't know what to call the system feedback I'm getting in an unreadable font. It's what comes up in the lower left of the screen when you hover over one of the format-change buttons here on the message edit box.

I want to change this font to something I can read.

Show Known File Extensions Reverts To Default?

Jun 3, 2013

On the first day I received my laptop, I went into folder options and selected to show hidden folders and show known file extensions just as I have in 7, and Vista before that.

It seems like every few times I log back into my PC, this option has changed itself and decided to hide all file extensions. The showing hidden folders option has not changed back once.

Very strange! I thought it was a registry scan that was reverting the option, but it doesn't seem to be causing the issue.

Windows 8 Showing File Extensions Causes Crash

Oct 24, 2012

I have recently installed Windows 8 Enterprise RTM x86 on FSC V3505 laptop and so far the OS has been working for a month. However, Recently I tried to access "Control panel -> Indexing options -> Advanced -> File types" which caused the Indexing options windows to close. Similarly, trying to access "Control panel -> Default Programs - > Associate a file type or protocol with a program" causes windows explorer to crash. The Event Viewer reports are shown below. Both options I am trying to access are supposed to show a list of file extensions. I am trying to figure out what is the reason for this behavior and possible to correct the issue without reinstalling windows from scratch. System restore is not a good option since there are only two restore points corresponding to recent time points.

Attempting to access : Control panel -> Indexing options -> Advanced -> File types causes the following error in Event Viewer :

Faulting application name: DllHost.exe, version: 6.2.9200.16384, time stamp: 0x5010888a
Faulting module name: combase.dll, version: 6.2.9200.16420, time stamp: 0x505a976e
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x00027579
Faulting process id: 0xc58

Apps / Software :: Open Apps That Are Active Lose Focus In Seconds?

Oct 21, 2013

In w 8.1 If I open an app within seconds it loses focus. It makes it very difficult to type ie in e mail, the only way to get focus is to left click the mouse within the app and the cursor comes back for a few letters then the cursor disapears again. So any time I make an app active it becomes inactive quickly. To make it active again I have to click on it with my mouse.

Apps / Software :: Right Click Open With Giving Unnecessary Apps

Oct 24, 2013

I have put irfanview as my default image viewers of all types all over the system.

However, when I am using irfanview on a particular image, I want some other app to open the other images that I am trying to open. For that I have installed FastStone Image Viewer, so I want FSView.exe to appear in my RightClick - Open With defaults so that I can select it.

However I try, windows 8 is always showing
Microsoft Office 2010
Windows Photo Viewer
in that open with setting.

I have selected Faststone viewer a dozen time through disk, but it doesn't stick to the right click menu. Those names are always coming.

I don't want even to see 1. Microsoft Office 2010, 2. Photos, 3. Windows Photo Viewer in that list, I just don't want to use these three programs to ever open any of my images.

So I want, 1. irfanview, 2. paint, 3. Faststone viewer to appear in my rightclick openwith list.

How do I do it. I have tried control panel - Default programs. I have downloaded and run Default Programs Editor.exe mentioned elsewhere in this forum, but they don't give any option to "delete" there options of rightclick menu that keep on appearing.

I found that whenever I open an app, such as 'Reader' they remain open even after I switch to something else. I know I could close them by swiping the upper left of the screen and select 'Close'.

Is there a way to have them close altogether when I'm done with them?

Apps / Software :: Windows 8 Apps Won't Open

Jun 7, 2013

I can't seem to open any off my apps from the start menu. When I open an app, the app closes back but is available at the sidewindow(?). It doesn't load or anything. When I click it, the app sort of minimizes to the sidewindow(?).

So I've been lurking around and one of the problems that I thought was happening to me is that I do not have the temporary internet files. C -> Users -> My Name -> AppData -> Local. I read that it should have a windows folder in the local folder and a temporary internet files in the windows folder.

I changed my local user to the microsoft account and then changed back to the local user using another username so that might affect these change in my pc.

Apps / Software :: Open In New Tab Is Not Available In IE?

May 28, 2014

Today I've opened IE and I've found out that 'Open link in a new tab' has disappeared.

I updated my 8.1 update 1 system just few days ago and cleaned disk with the Windows utility Disk cleaner installed with Windows 8.1 Update 1.

There's another issue: when I've opened it, it seemed like my start page was modified as well as the page it is opened when a new tab is created...

What should I do?

Ps: Metro IE is stil working correctly...

Apps / Software :: Open New Instance Of Applications?

Dec 13, 2013

Maybe it's just me that this annoys but i hope there is a setting that can be changed to fix it. In Windows 8/8.1 if you try to open an app that is already open it does nothing.

1. Click start >> Type MSTSC >> Press Enter and connect to a remote computer/server.
2. Do the same again (not on the remote computer/server) >> you will notice after hitting Enter that it doesn't open the Remote Desktop dialogue.

It will either go back to the desktop or open the original remote connection. It is the same with any application (Excel, Word...)

It didn't work that way in 7, it would open a new instance of that application is there any way to change this?

I've got a problem of mass scale. My Windows 8.1 Store refuses to load. Whatever I do, it doesn't start up. I had to get to an app with compatibility problems and get to the store in that way, but also that doesn't work anymore.

Other than the one putting a big line in the cmd (one of the first & only real solution I could find).

Please reinstall it." I have removed the program and reinstalled it several times and it still won't work. It's a family tree program that I used almost daily and now I'm concerned I lost everything. I even tried to open the program via the administrator function but it still won't work.
