That depends on the type of file you're trying to open. If it's a word processor document, for example, you'll need a compatible word processor program. If it's a spreadsheet, you'll need a compatible spreadsheet program. Would you care to provide some details?
The function keys (F1 through F12) are exactly that. Function Keys.
F1 generally opens a Help dialogue
F8 opens your windows startup manager when booting windows
F10/F11/F12 Can be used in some BIOS managers
These keys are dependant on what operating system you are using which will define what they do. Some OS's allow you to program these keys to open different things.
Submenu under openwith depends on types of extensions you are trying to do open with. For example, pdf file will have the extension Acrobat reader and internet explorer, because pdf file has been successfully opened with those programs previously.
First try to open the program using open with and next time it will show you the submenu to open with.
In order to change what program opens a certain file type in Windows
XP, you must change the file association. To change the file
association for a specific file, you first need to view the file's
You can view a file's properties by simply right-clicking on the
file and selecting "Properties" from the contextual menu that pops up.
Now, in the properties window, you will see a line saying "Opens with:" and next to it the program that opens your file. To change this file association, click the "Change..." button. A new window ("Open with") will open where you will choose which program you want to open your file. For example, to open your image file, choose photoshop. If you can't find it on the list, click on "Browse" and search for Photoshop.exe (probably in your Program Files).
If you want Photoshop to open all files with the same extension (e.g. all .jpg files), you should tick the box at the bottom of the "Open with" window saying "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file."
what type of file are you openeing, for example if its a document file you should have an option there to select the program, just of of curiosity, try opening a program you want to use then open from in the program the file you want to see what happens
