Hi Rab,

did you give the files a name?, if you did, open Notepad and press Ctrl + o and search for it, other than that, you can search File Manager or use the search feature in the taskbar. That's all the help I can give you. :)

Hi Wolfie, thanks for your reply. Only my last Notepad save is causing the trouble and unable in remembering as to the procedure was. As always Notepad was given a name and saved under "save as".

Hi Rab,

Notepad files have the following format when using "Save as": *,txt so try searching for that file name. :)

Hi Wolfie,
Thanks for your interest as always appreciated.
I actually I am still using in trying to solve an old chestnut composing a ".bat" file to control LED lighting on the front of my HP OMEN computer, to make it more frustrating for a couple of weeks it did achieve what I wanted but as again it no longer does. What is causing the non functioning of the .bat file again remains a mystery?
Copy of .bat file. Composing is not by any means my strong point.


@ echo off
Start "C:\Users\Program Files\HPPhoenixCtrl Start.exe"
Taskkill: /im /f /t
Shutdown: -s -f -t 1
CLS:
Flename: HPPhoenixCtrl Start.exe
echo closing
Off

By default most programs Save in a folder in C:\Users\USERNAMEHERE. Using Save As allows choosing a different folder from the default. The Desktop or any other folder would have to be specified but that location has to be remembered, easier if done often or routinely. Notepad uses .txt for text documents but also gives a choice of whatever the document creator wants. Using the wrong extension can cause the document not able to open is some other program.
