Any of you that do websites and like to open .html and similar files in notepad to edit scripts, this is the coolest windows registry edit ever you can download the zip file with the .reg in it (run it and it automatically adds itself to your registry) or do it manually.
Manually: regedit and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\*\Shell add the key "notepad" it's default value should be "open with notepad" now, under "notepad", add the key "command" it's default value should be (with the quotes) "c:\windows\system32\Notepad.exe" "%1"
ok, exit regedit and go right click on ANY file... you new option: Open with notepad.
I know this one works on XP and 2000, you can PROBABLY enter it manually on windows 9x, but I have not tested that.
I know maybe not everyone cares... but this was fun for me because I love tweaking my computer and it makes some web design stuff easier for me :D
Check your hosts file. To do this, press start-->Run and type in %systemroot%System32driversetc
A window with files will be brought up. In there, there is a hosts file. Right-click on the file and run with notepad. Search for yahoo.com. You can do a ctrl-f. If it is there, highlight the entire file, open notepad as an administrator. right-click on notepad and click run as administrator. Paste what you just copied into this new notepad file and save in the same directory that your original hosts file is located.
This a step by step instruction. Do not, I repeat do not edit anything else or lose any information when you copy and paste or you will lose startup of some of your other services.
If this does not work, run a virus scan. You can download avg for free at www.avg.com
You may have selected Notepad as the program to use to open file folders. Right click the "ipod" icon and select Explore instead of Open, and see if it will display the contents of the ipod. Whether it is successful or not, at some point you will need to open up My Computer --> Fodler Options --> File Types, and find out which file types are associated with Notepad. This is time-consuming, but it the safe way to approach the problem. There is advice online that will show you how to edit it by registry, but this method is fraught with peril - one false move and you could ruin your computer. Good luck!
When you open the file, Windows may be trying to open it with the wrong program. It may be trying to open a picture file with Notepad, which would result in numbers and unreadable characters. If this is the problem, right click on the file, choose "Open With", and choose the appropriate program.
whatever you are downloading and trying to open is something that you have not got the software associated with it to open it and either you have chose notepad to open up the file or windows as selected it as default as it cannot find a programme that you have installed to open it.
If you know that you have an associated programme, right click on the file select open with and then browse for the required programe.
