I have several webpages that I created in Windows XP using Notepad with simple html coding. When I open one of these files under Documents in Windows XP, it is shown exactly as it appears on the Web. In order to edit the coding, I click on "View" and then "Source" and the html coding appears.
I've transferred these files to my new computer with Windows 8, but there's no way to view the coding and edit. I right-clicked on a file and the dialogue box that appears includes "edit." But when I click on "edit," I get the message "There is no program associated with this file to perform this activity." Well, the "program" that I used to create the file was Notepad. Is there no Notepad in Windows 8, and if there is, is it incompatible with Windows XP Notepad?
Is there no way to edit html in Windows 8 without finding some editing program to download or purchase? (I gather from "Windows 8 for Dummies" that there isn't, since "html" is not even in the index.)
The thing is, i open java files with Eclipse by default. Today i wanted to take some notes about Java the programming language which include text and code. I used Notepad++, and with it you can save the file as a wide variety of types, among them java file. I chose this, but since they are associated with eclipse, it makes opening them with Notepad++ tedious. I want to ask if there is a way to set the default program for some java files Notepad++ and leave Eclipse for the rest? This would be a useful feature for few other types too.
I am running a Win 7 OS on an SSD and I have some programs installed on a different hard drive. And I want to move this program files folder on the same hard drive but different partition. Is it possible to do this without breaking the program links?
in Windows-8 when i try to delete folder i got the message: "The action cant be completed because the folder or file in it is open in another program" i check and close all program, i dont see it in the task-manager (if i reset the computer, and try again it will delete it)
another problem in Windows-8, when i copy, or delete folder - i cant see the action until i press F5 for refresh
I've been getting errors everytime that I open a program (ANY and EVERY program). When booted into safe mode I'm not getting any errors. Here's some pictures of me opening google chrome, skype, and Windows Media Player.
It seems to be the exact same error for all of them and the only program that DOESNT seem to give me the error is paint. As soon as I click "ok", the program opens like normal but this is incredibly annoying.
This error started immediately after I installed Windows 8 from Windows 7, I might add.
I've just uninstalled RealPlayer on Windows 8, but I am unable to remove the link from the list after clicking "Choose default program" from "Open with". I've already gone through this: Open with - Clean Up and Remove Programs - Windows 7 Forums, but it still wouldn't work. How to remove it?
I have been using a program called Family Tree Legends for years now, but just recently when I try to open the program I receive the following message: "This program has been damaged, possibly by a bad sector of the hard drive or a virus. 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.

I have Windows 8.1 and on my desktop are several PNG files and shortcuts. When I double click on any of them the program that opens is Directory Opus (I use this instead of Windows Explorer). I checked the defaults and it is NOT Directory Opus.
I have a very frustrating issue with Windows 8 where my software disappears when I select to open an existing file from within the parent program. It is not minimized and it is not 'off' the screen. I open task manager, and it doesn't exist as a process in any state. The program is Xilinx's ISE for programming FPGA boards.
Before, I get the obvious response that it is an issue with the ISE gui and not Windows 8, I've had a similar problem in another program in Windows 8 in which when I tried to create a new folder in a select file dialog box to save a file, the program would disappear. (Though, I don't recall which program that was.) It's as the program closes completely! (I'm lovin' Linux even more now.)
brand new computer, i installed my normal program (office 2013, vs.net 2013, sql developer 2014, stardock start 8 and some other basic stuff etc)
i have this computer and google chrome pinned to the task bar.
if i left click either of them, they take 10+ seconds to open. I can run either from a short cut on the desktop or anywhere else and they both open instantly.
i can fix this behavior by right clicking the task bar and clicking lock the task bar. now both chrome and this computer open instantly for about 1 min. eventually they both go back to 10 seconds. i can then right click and do unlock the task bar and it fixes it for a min etc.
i think it might have something to do with office. i'm going to try to uninstall that and reinstall and see if it works. the little pop up messages in the upper right corner for "you have an email" are also very slow when i click on it to open the email in outlook.
I was wondering how I could go about removing items from the Open With menu without having to download any programs for it. Here's a screenshot of what I'm talking about. I would like to remove Photos/Paint as I never use those 2 items.
I have win8 64bit OS. I have converted abook saved in PDF to an ebook using a software. And it is required to save in SWF/html in order to read on ebook reader on tablet etc. But I am not able to do so in win 8.
I use the Commandline with just about everything I do on my laptop, often utilizing batch scripts that I've written, from editing, renaming, moving, timestamping, exif manipulation of my image files to SET-ting variables etc..
There remains quite a bit of internal commands that I'm not familiar with. One of them being the "sort" command of which I think may be responsible for my current issue.
I read a little about it via the "/?" command then gave it a little input until it occurred to me from the returns that command was supplying of which were no returns at all, that I was not doing things right so I got bored and went onto something else. It seems that since that time, all my text files have had "par" appended to them. and I don't know how to correct this.
At one point It looked like this would only happen if I opened them from the command prompt but then noticed "par" was there if I double clicked the text file. Is this something to do with that "Sort" command or is it something else all together? And, how in the heck can I fix it because it's really getting on my nerves as I'm creating some Tutorials pages utilizing "Choice" and "More" with cmd.exe being the viewer and every time I format some text, get it all prettied up for the tut program command muffles it up with that damn "par"!
I'm having problems where I can't see my video thumbnails on Windows 8.1 Preview, also - I don't know which ones I'm going to click at and play. Is there a way to solve this problem, so I can see my video thumbnails, just an icon with an white paper as an background of the icons.
The image below is the problem I'm having at the moment which I can't see the video thumbnails, just an icon with a white paper background:
The video thumbnails works alright in Windows 7 Home Premium that we used to have.
Windows 8.1 Enterprise Preview (I'm going to have a full version soon).
For some reason I cannot do anything in my Program Files for one of my hard drives. My C drive seems to be fine, as well as my 2 other drives. But in my F drive, Ive broken down the program files into a normal one and x86 one. I can basically access every other folder expect the Program Files in F drive. Program Files (x86) in the same drive works perfectly fine. Everytime i try to add a new folder or delete anything in my Program Files folder it says destination folder access denied and i need permission.
Ive tried fiddling with all the UAC and permissions but nothing seems to work.I even tried the command prompt :
"4. To Take Ownership of a Folder or Drive in a Command Prompt. NOTE: This command will take ownership of the folder or drive, and all files and subfolders in the folder or drive."
method but it says Access is Denied in my command prompt.
Okay, so apparently my "Programmer" folder on C: changed to "Program Files". I live in Denmark, so the system is danish. The folder "Program Files" used to be named "Programmer", but somehow it changed to "Program files". It is weird, because that my other x86 folder is still named "Programmer (86)". How to rename it back?
After my computer started acting screwy, the OS asked if I'd like to restore my computer to a previous state. It said I would lose my apps but keep my personal files. I went along with it, thus making a huge mistake.
I had many many project files saved in my Program Files (x86) folder that I didn't think I'd lose, but now I can't find them. I discovered Windows.old but it doesn't contain any Program Files folders.
Is there any possible way to get those files back?
I did a refresh on windows 8 because the computer was running really slow. after it finished, i could go inside the windows.old folder to access all my files including the program files from which i copied so folders onto an external hard drive but now there is no more program files folder there and i need some of the files and i did not delete any of them.
I have windows 8.1 and c-drive is system drive. Programs are mainly installed to C: but I have also some programs installed to E: Program Files, Program Files (68), Program Data etc . Now I want to to move E-drive contents to another hard drive (all files stored on e-drive).
I think the safest way is to reinstall all programs, but I don't want to do this. Also it is possible to move files to new partition which has another drive letter than e: and create link, but this I don't want to do either.
Can I do it like this:
1) Change e-drive letter to x 2) Create new e-drive to another hard drive 3) Copy e-drive contents to new e-dive 4) that is it?
Can I use normal copy - paste to copy all files? I think register references are the same after these steps because drive letter and content of the e-drive are still the same.
Does my method work? It sound so easy to do. Is it "too easy"? Does it have any risks?
I just tried downloading an exe file to the "Program Files" folder & was not able to in Win 8.1 pro. I get the attached message. I believe I was able to save files in this folder in win 7. I am the admin.
My last computer died a week ago so I bought a new desk top tower. I'm well conditioned to using W7 but everything seems to have W8 or W8.1 on it now so I got one with W8.1. First, I'm bummed that I have to learn how to use a new OS. Some say W8 is a better functioning version of W7. It's different, plain and simple.
I installed Classic Shell to add some of the familiar features from W7 to my W8.1. That did work with some things but when viewing pics, there is no task bar across the top of the screen like there was ion W7. I was hoping that Classic Shell would add one there but it did not.
Is there any way to add a task bar across the top of the screen in W8.1 when viewing a picture file like there is in W7?
