Setting Default Option For Image Files - Photoshop As Default

Jun 15, 2014

I went to go set photoshop as the default for opening a jpeg, and I noticed this weird option on the list that says %1. I don't know how to get rid of it it is very annoying. I tried cleaning the registry with CCleaner and removing "%1;" from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerFileAssociation. Nothing has worked so far, What is %1 anyway?

Setting Default Programs In Windows 8 Not Working Right

Jul 29, 2013

It was working before today all of a sudden every time I open a pic Windows asks me what program I want to open it with, WD (which is a Western Digital Metro App that I don't know how it got installed), or Paint, or Windows Photo Viewer.

So I choose Windows Photo Viewer but everytime I open a pic it asks me the same thing ....

So I went to my program defaults but when I try to make Windows Photo Viewer the default app, it only makes 8 out of 12 extensions the same and not any more ....

I uninstalled that stupid WD metro app but it's still the same ....

Same thing with MPC-HC when I make it default nothing happens, it has 0 out of 112 extensions that it can't associate with ....

Browsers/Mail :: Setting Outlook7 To Default Mailto In Windows 8

Mar 23, 2014

New computer blues... I installed my Outlook7 through Windows Office. I ran it on my old computer. I eventually got my email files moved, but for whatever reason had to manually redo all the email address' that I check with it.

I now have Explorer10. When I click on a "mailto:", it tries to set up a new account app. When I go to the file "Set your default programs", click on "Mail", all I have showing on the right is "Mail", no "Outlook"! How do I get "mailto:" to associate with my Outlook?

Hardware Drivers :: Change Printer Default Setting To Grayscale?

Nov 5, 2013

In previous versions of windows, I was able to customize the printer settings so that it always printed in grayscale, unless specifically changed at the time of the print job. I see how to access the control and can navigate to Customize Your Printer under Printer Management, but the option to change the default printer settings to grayscale or black and white is nowhere to be found?

Browsers/Mail :: Setting Chromium As Default Browser In Windows 8

Aug 6, 2013

I've been using Windows 8 since the Developer preview and I've had no problems with it until now.

I recently got fed up with Firefox (for being too slow, and buggy). so I installed Chromium (not chrome. Chromium, the open source version of Google chrome without that spyware Google puts in it's browser)

But I have a big problem with it - I can't set it as my default browser. If I go to the settings and and click the big button that says "Make Chromium your default browser" all I get is this.

Code: How would you like to open this type of a link (http)?Keep using: NightlyInternet ExploderFind apps from the store

I've seen many tutorials about adding default software, but for some reason chromium isn't listed in the "default apps" section of control panel. Is there a way to navigate to a certain .exe to add it as a default?

Accounts :: Windows 8 Image - Copying / Modifying Default Profile

May 3, 2013

I'm trying to set up a Windows 8 image. I want to edit the default profile so that when a new user signs on, they have the settings that I choose. In Windows 7 Pro, we could log on with a dummy account, edit the profile how we wanted it, then just copy and paste the information into the Default User Profile. With 8, when we do this, it doesn't always work. Most of the time, once it's on the domain, domain users cannot sign in. Or when they do sign in, the Metro tiles don't work. Any good way to edit and set up the default profile?

Browsers/Mail :: After Enabling Windows Mail / Setting Default For EML

May 6, 2013

I got Windows Mail working and pretty happy as I was able to retrieve about 10 years of messages. But, pointers went bad and some messages are not available. The only way to get them is to go directly to the folder where they are saved, and open the message itself -- they're all there. So, I would do that and re-save, but I can't open .eml files. Windows 8 doesn't allow me to specify Windows Mail as a default program for any file type. I'm pretty sure I had to edit the registry to get Windows Mail to fully work with Windows 7 but can't recall what all changes need to happen, or if Windows 8 is just going to be more limited.

8.1 - How To Default Search To Files

Nov 4, 2013

Windows 8.1 upgrade. The "universal" search sucks. Control panel -disabled BING. But when I return to the search screen, and start typing, the default remains EVERYTHING. This excludes a lot of the paths FILES looks under.

Is there any way for Win 8.1 to default your search to FILES (not Everything, which excludes a lot of your index locations)?

Folders Files Keep Changing Back To Default?

May 28, 2014

I have recently undertaken to get my pictures folder all sorted out and I have got a couple of thousand pictures there. I have been trying to make individual folders within my folder in categories so that I can sort things.

The problem is that in each of these folders I have to keep clicking on "View" and then "Extra Large" over and over again. Isn't it supposed to stay like I put it without me having to re-tell it over and over? It keeps going back to the default size of the pictures.

tiring to have to keep on re-setting the picture sizes for the hundredth time.

Apps / Software :: Default For Deleting Recovered Files In Word 2010

Mar 4, 2014

Is it possible to change the default for this message box so that next time I hit enter without reading what the message says I don't lose my work?

I just did this rather foolishly and it would be nice if the default was to save the recovered files not to delete them.

Apps / Software :: Photoshop Elements 11 Very Slow To Open Files On Desktop

Apr 15, 2014

Out of the blue today when I opened PSE 11 and then tried to use it to open a file on my Desktop, it went to sleep. Task Manager showed it "not-responding". Rebooting the computer did not work. After a couple of tries, I waited for 2-3 minutes and it then displayed files on the desktop. I switched the location it was searching, which was Desktop to my photo folder, and everything started working normally. Closed and restarted, and it was fine opening files from my Pictures folder. But, when I switched it to Desktop it went to sleep again for 2-3 minutes. At one point it got a message, which I forget exactly, but basically saying it could not find the file it was searching for??

It seems unique to the Desktop location. The Desktop is part of the operating system (Windows 8.1), and on a SSD. The Pictures folder is on my HDDs. I don't recall making any changes to the setup.

Summary of the symptoms:

1. Only is slow with File, Open, or File, Open As, when the location is the Desktop
2. Operating system (8.1) is on a SSD. Normal file folder is on HDD.
3. Same actions when location is Pictures on HDD is normal.
4. Process Explorer does not seem to detect any activity going on during the "sleeping" mode

Maintenance :: Acer Desktop - Setting OEM Recovery Image

Jul 10, 2014

I had my Acer desktop come back from the factory a couple of weeks ago. They did a great job in reparing it, however:

When confirming that they had did everything correctly, I out of curiosity, ran the ''reagentc.exe /showcurrent'' command from an elevated command prompt. Whoops, there was no recovery image specified.

After hurting my brain somewhat, I deduced I would need to mount the ''Push Button Reset'' partition with a letter - I used ''Z'' for clarity. *EDIT* So I could locate the folder that the image was stored in, and specify it in the command..** (I used Acronis Disk Director for this simple operation)

I was then able to use the ''REAGENTC /SetOSImage ... '' commmand and specified it in the folder in my OEM Push Button Recovery partition.

My question is this, if I unmount the letter Z, and therefore make it a hidden partition, I guess that Windows won't be able to find it if I need to do a recovery? Would you know of any work a round, or if I could perhaps use another command to specify the OEM recovery image, which is located in that hidden partition.

Can't Boot To SSD By Default

Sep 19, 2013

Bought a new HP Windows 8 machine w/1tb hd. Finally broke secure boot. Partitioned drive so C drive would fit in my SSD, eventually cloned C partition to SSD. I can get it to boot the SSD if I (esc) at boot to specify 1-time boot to sata0 (SSD). If I boot non-stop, boots to sata1 spinning hd (where I got the SSD image from).

Talked to HP, they won't suppot, as original hd is fine. They eventually told me I need to look into BCDEDIT. Here is a screen shot with both drives connected:

Looking for best bcdedit command to boot from sata0, as default drive, (instead of sata1) which is my SSD.
