When i tried to open a file on my machine a message was displayed that the machine did not know what program to openthis file with. i had the choice to choose from a list the program i would like to open...


The quickest way is to save that same file type to the desktop, right click on the file and click "Open with" and when the program box comes up, choose the appropriate program and tick the box to always open with that program and it'll change the program the file opens with.

Windows notepad is in computer code, cannot read text--vista when i open up hp help line it comes out in code no html or plain text


notepad is not meant for viewing formatted html or other help files other than TXT files.

You may have accidentally changed an association.
to change it back for html lets say then right click on the file then use "open with" then "select program from list"

when the list opens scroll down and click "internet explorer" and tick the "always use this application" box

I CANNOT VIEW MENC FORMAT


The .menc extension is the indicator that tells whether a file is encrypted. The purpose of the extension is to indicate that you can't open those files. A Lock icon is also associated with the encrypted files.
When you insert the storage card back to your device where the files were encrypted, the [GUID] will match with the decryption key on your device and the [GUID].menc extension will not be displayed. Encrypted files will appear just like normal files and they can be opened.

Decrypting files:
To decrypt files that are encrypted, the current solution is to transfer them from the storage card to a computer via ActiveSync or Windows Mobile Device Center, and then copy them back to the storage card after the Storage Card Encryption has been disabled on the device.
  1. To disable Storage Card Encryption:
  2. Go to Start>Settings>System Tab>Encryption.
  3. Uncheck the box that says “Encrypt files placed on the storage card.”
  4. Tap OK.

My Windows Explorer does not show extentions


By default, file extensions for known file types are hidden in Windows XP. However, you can change this setting so that file extensions are shown for files in a certain folder or for all files on your hard disk.
To show file extensions, first open any folder on your hard drive, such as "My Computer" or "My Documents." Then select "Folder Options..." from the Tools menu as shown below.
545a526.gif When the Folder Options window opens, click the View tab. This will show the file and folder view settings.
95b32b0.gif One of the options under Advanced settings is "Hide extensions for known file types." If this option is checked, uncheck the checkbox and click Apply or OK. This setting is system wide, so unchecking this box will make file extensions appear in all folders.
If you decide to hide file extensions at a later time, you can check the box again and click OK to revert back to the previous settings.
