    SOLVED Windows 10 now decided to not let me use Firefox anymore as default browser

    Did I miss something? In trying to solve this problem I discovered that in the Default Apps Dialog there is no choice of selecting an app already on your machine to open a file type; you have to choose the default Windows app or choose something available on the Windows Store. The "more apps...

    Windows 10 default apps for file types and protocals not working

    My default mail app is set to Outlook. Regarding the response from Trouble; i'm afraid I don't understand. It can't find any reference in the turn windows features on and off to IE. In any case, IE is now obsolete and shouldn't be used. You said "click here to view it in a web browser" didn't...

    Windows 10 default apps for file types and protocals not working

    I don't know if this is the right place to post this question but I believe it is a Windows problem and not one with Outlook or Word. I am using a fully updated version of windows 10 and Microsoft Office 2016. In Outlook , when I try to open a HTML email in the browser it always opens in...

    Multiple printer drivers

    I hope this is the correct forum. My wife's complaining led me to research this problem. Often when she tries to print she gets an error message that the printer is offline. It is not offline of course; it turns out that an incorrect printer driver is selected by whatever program she is trying...

    You do not have permission to write to this folder' error

    I thank you for your interest and help with my problem. I have solved it though I still don't understand how or what happened. It was not a permissions issue after all. Hopefully I have not caused any damage with my ownership changes and permissions. My data drive still has the system user with...

    You do not have permission to write to this folder' error

    I deleted folder and recreated it from VinylStudio. CATRaxx still could not write to the folder. The new folder had inherited permissions from the data drive permissions. I followed your instructions and it did not work.

    You do not have permission to write to this folder' error

    Thanks for your reply. I had already done most of this. I had changed ownership of all the files and folders on my data drive to my user account and had all permissions set to full control. I had tried the disable inheritance but had picked the other choice rather than convert. That did not work...

    You do not have permission to write to this folder' error

    I just installed the April l2018 Windows 10 update and now I have a permissions problem. I use a music database program CATTRax which has an auto organize music files function winch renames files and folders according to rules and writes the files and folders to the new location. I have used it...

    SOLVED Another startup program problem.

    Problem solved. Set program to run in compatibility mode for XP and then created an elevated shortcut to the program and placed it in the startup folder. runs on boot and seems to be working correctly; for now.

    SOLVED Another startup program problem.

    I misstated. On the laptop where the programs runs on startup and works correctly the compatibility mode is set to off. I have learned a little more but not enough. I used an uninstall program to clean out everything since the built in uninstall is obsolete. I reinstalled. The setting in the...

    SOLVED Another startup program problem.

    I have tried that setting for the program and the shortcut. On the laptop where the start on boot works the program is set to emulate windows xp That setting doesn't appear to available on Windows 10 on my main computer. The program and the run at startup worked fine when I was running Windows 7...

    SOLVED Another startup program problem.

    tried that and didn't work. I'm thinking it is some problem in ownership of permissions that I haven't figured out yet. The closest I have come is writing a startup task to run the program. I had just prior tried to reinstall the program over the existing installation. When the startup task ran...

    SOLVED Another startup program problem.

    Sorry I didn't read your post carefully enough. Yes I have that key in the registry, but i'm not sure how that helps me. I have the shortcut installed in C:\Users\Frank Schabel\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\wallmaster pro.lnk. I believe that is the proper location
