Applications all open in Notpad

  duplo 18:36 29 Oct 03

I made a bit of fluff. I was trying to sort out an application that would not work on a CD and set it to open in Notepad.

Now everything opens in notepad, I open office and get code in notepad, same with outlook, IE6... all of them. Tried to change it back and it wont let me!

What can I do! Help!!

Open one of your docs. then right click and choose "Open with" Choose, "Choose program" then place a tick in "Always open this file with" and choose the program you want to use. Now all your similar files will open in the same program.

I found when this happened to me I had to highlight the file first before right clicking. HTH TR

Those two options did not work, I managed to open system restor using the "open as System Administrator", and then restor it to this morning and thus it all works!

Cheers again
