When I want to open a JPEG, 55-60% of the time I want to open it with IrFanView. Just about all of the rest of the time I want to open it with Photoshop. When I click on a JPEG file, it opens in IrFanView. So far, so good.
When I right-click on a JPEG file, the fifth choice is "Open with EditPad", which is a text editor. Of course, I never want to open a JPEG with a text editor.
Farther down there is the "Open with", with the triangle that gives several choices, including Photoshop. But that takes one extra step each time. Is there a way to change the "open with EditPad" to "Open with Photoshop", and leave the clicking on the file to open with IrFanView?
When I try to save files from Google, Office 2013 or any program in Windows 8.1, I get a partial white screen and a "Not Responding" message on the Title Bar. The "Close Program" dialog box follows. So, I can't "Save As" to my computer.

I have a HP Deskjet 1515 which I just purchased 4 days ago. When I attempt to print anything from specific programs (more on this) nothing happens. I can see that the print job enters the print queue but it immediately disappears. There is no error given.
The strange thing is that certain programs can print, while others appear unable.

I am using Windows 8.1 x64 (legal copy) and it is fully updated. All of my software is legal and updated.
I can print to other printers, network and local.
Other computers can print to this printer (all are Windows 7 x32).
Printer is set up on USB002 Virtual Printer Port.
I have tried using the drivers that came with my printer as well as downloading the latest drivers from HP's website.
Here are some examples:

The consensus as far as I can see seems that there is a problem with the Windows System Files and that I need to use SFC to repair it.
This is what I tried to do.After running SFC in an elevated command prompt and running "SFC /SCANNOW" I received a message saying that SFC could not fix something. I tried running the command multiple times (and also from boot).
I then proceeded to use Deployment Imaging and Servicing Management (DISM) tool to update the files and correct the problem. This appeared to work because after running DISM I then re-ran SFC /SCANNOW and received no error messages.
Here are some other things that I have tried in addition to the above with no effect:
RestartingDeleting the printer, restarting, re-installing from a different USB port.Punching the sky like no one is watchingChanging the USB cable to one I knew was workingPrayerRun Printer Troubleshooter (but lets face it we knew that would do nothing)Restarting the Print Spooler ServiceRun WindowsUpdate to see if there is any printer related updates (there are no updates at all)Run Antivirus update / scan (looooong shot)
I am having a folder of size 28.7GB which contains 551000 files (547000 jpeg files and remaining files with some other extension) and 152000 folders. I am unable to access all my files and when I view the properties of the folder in windows explorer it is showing file count as 432000 but when I try to delete the folder it is saying that 551000 files found do you want to delete these files.
how to solve this issue. I have even copied the folder to another harddisk though no use.. I have even tried stellar phoniex data recovery software though no use I mean it is showing file count as 432000.
I am using Windows8 OS and my harddisk is partitioned as ntfs.
I am very new to Windows 8. I'm trying to print a line drawing that is saved as a jpeg. I need to print it at 250%, but how to do so. When I try to print it, it does not give me the printer options like previous versions of Windows did. Advanced options only allow me to choose orientation and page order. It does allow me to choose size as far as full page, 8x10, 5x7, 4x6, contact sheet, etc, but this is not what I need. I need to be able to print actual size and scale up (or down) from there.
Whenever I save-as a file from any software to desktop it is placed on Monitor 1 under the program I am using . I would like the saved file icon to be placed on the second monitor so I can drag it to another app running on monitor 1 without minimising the apps on my monitor 1. Is this possible ?
I have tried to change my screen brightness for the first time since downloading windows 8.1(about a month ago) and it is stuck a the lowest level. I have used the keys, the settings, and even the "Adjust screen brightness" button after clicking on the battery in bottom right of screen. I looked at my drivers and checked if my "Display adapters" needed to be updated, it didn't.
I am trying to change the image on the startup screen (the blue screen with a graphic of a tower on it)of my Inspiron 15 using windows 8. I have looked at the personalisation control panel, but it only offers me options to change themes, not the startup picture. My friend has a picture of honeycombe that came with system 8 as his startup screen, but he is away so I cannot ask him how he did it.
I just yesterday finished my new computer (16Gb RAM, i5-4470k, GTX 770, Win 8.1, etc.) and I just today realized that I cannot change the screen brightness. The button is grayed out and says "Unavailable" which I know cannot be possible.
Now, i have done my research and people say that the fix is to update your drivers through the Device Manager, and I have tried that to no avail. I have tried all possible combinations of "Display Adapters" and "Monitors" drivers. None work. I have been restarting my computer after every change .
One thing that I might add is that a lot of people remedy this problem by reverting their Intel Integrated drives back to an older version, but I do not have an option to change it's drivers. It shows up nowhere in the Device manager.
My eyes are burning as I am typing this and I would even go for a third-party brightness program (if that even exists).
How do I get this nasty file browser to never show up? I'd really much rather a normal file explorer window pop up. For example, using Paint Free, I made a nice little picture, then click "Save As". The screen I attached popped up. How do I get this bulky explorer to be replaced by a nice normal File Explorer? It happens in other programs sometimes as well, but I can't think of any other explicit examples.
I just recently imported Bookmarks (Favorites) from Chrome, and I was wondering how to remove the names of my bookmarks to have only the icons showing? That's the way I have them in Chrome, and it is great because it saves tremendous space on the Favorite Bar. I don't want to change with "Customize Title Width" to show only the Icons because I have some named folders as well, and when the text is removed it's impossible to know their contents. I know it's possible to have icons only show, even with the setting "Long Titles" selected, because YouTube, one of my imports, did indeed save without a name/title. I have attached a screenshot to exemplify that this is indeed possible:
I have an SSD machine with 90 Gbytes of storage running at home, not connected to server. I use a USB drive for extra capacity but I seldom have much spare space on C: as I have SQL server and Visual Studio installed. Looking at storage use on C: I notice 1.7 Gbytes of files in C:UsersSimonAppDataRoaming. Can I delete these as I use my login on only one computer at home? Roaming profiles are not enabled.
There are also 1.9 GBytes of files on C:UsersAll Users. I believe All Users is used for creating profiles for new users and All Users contains folders corresponding to those in C:Programs and C:Programs (x86). Can I delete any folders with programs that wouldn't be needed by any new accounts I might create?
I have a gateway NE56R41u. With that aside, today i played the sims 3 when it has a warning about my graphics card or whatever, so i went to my screen resolution to see if i can fix the problem. Unfortunately, the place where i can choose what my resolution is greyed out, so i cannot change a thing. Heres a picture .....
When trying to save a document (could be from OpenOffice or LibreOffice or even a PDF), the Save As dialog opens and then immediately freezes. There is no way to escape--I have to "X" out of it and the document app crashes.
No new software has been installed since creating the new user account. We use Norton 360 and also Malware Bytes for protection.
I do a lot of remote administration after hours and I often login as an admin user into client workstations to fix various issues. One thing that I do to eliminate confusion is to edit the registry of a Win7 machine and change the HKLMSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionAuthenticationLogonUILastLoggedOnUser registry value back to the user's username.
That way inattentive users don't keep trying their password with the Admin username when they attempt to login the next day. I see that Windows 8 has the same key, but changing that value doesn't appear to "stick". It appears to be overwritten when you logout/reboot/shutdown. I've also tried deleting the SAM entries in the same key, but that seems to have no effect. I've seen several posts on how to show all users or none on the logon screen, but I'm trying to minimize the changes that end users will experience (complain about). I'm also hoping for a solution that will work with both domain and non-domain joined computers.
I use a gmail POP account to get my emails from my ip.
I want to be able to save an email to my local hard drive as txt or htm
When I tell EI 11 to Save as.. .txt, the file is unreadable.
When I save it as an htm and open it I'm sent to the gmail login but gmail seem to hang for a long time at login. I don't get to the inbox at all and need to close IE. How to save web mail to my hard drive?
I recently installed Win 8.1 Pro...there's some things I like and some I don't. I'm learning about File History and the System Image tools. Why MS went backwards in their backup tools from Win7 is a topic for another day...but I have a question about getting File History to backup certain files.
1) From what I'm reading & inferring, the only way to get File History to backup my Outlook 2007 PST file would be to add its containing folder to the Library? For example, add C:UsersUsernameAppDataLocalMicrosoftOutlook to the Library?
2) I'm guessing for other user files, preferences, data files, etc., that are usually located in the AppData Local or Roaming folders, that we have to add their containing folders to the Library?
Is this correct...or does File History back these up by default somewhere (besides System Image).
P.S. I hate this File History thing and the buried System Image tool that's also been handicapped. I want Win7's Backup & Restore back, where we could select any files we wanted for backup, schedule time of day to run backups and images, etc. I can only think MS did this to dumb down things for users.
