All folders open with realplayer


if you want a different player , just select a file and while pressing the Shift button press right click mouse button and go to open with and choose default .. select a preferred software and make sure the check the " always use the selected program " and then all files will be open afterwards with the selected software . but be noted it will only open from that selected file format . for example it can be avi so all files with the same format will open with the software you selected so you have to repeat this process just 3 to four times since there are so many vids with different formats

How to Import PST file to Outlook


PST file or Personal Storage Table (.pst) is a file format used to store copies of messages, calendar data, notes and other personal setting in Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Exchange Client, and Windows Messaging. Prior to Outlook 2003, the maximum storage capacity of .pst file was of 2GB. The PST file keeps on changing its size with the arrival of new e-mails and deleting of old e-mails. Once the PST file size grows more than 2GB, the file would become unusable. Now Microsoft provides a tool named as PST2GB, which is used to truncate a PST file larger than 2 GB. After Outlook 2003 and in later versions, PST files are created using the Unicode format and have storage capacity of 20 GB.

Storing of data is very important especially in the age of hackers. You never know when you hardware crashes or the file becomes corrupted. Also, back up is required in case you shift your work to a different computer. You can import your new PST file to Outlook using the application’s interface. Let us have a look at the sequential procedure to import your PST file to Outlook in a different computer:

Step 1: Copy the PST file to the hard drive of the computer in which you have the Outlook application. If you have stored your PST file in a removable media or any CD/DVD-ROM, copy it to the local hard drive of the computer

Step 2: Right-click on the icon of PST file and select Properties

Step 3: Make sure that you have unchecked the Read-only box to be able to save the file. If you open the file in read only mode, you will only be able to read e-mail but not save them

Step 4: Start Microsoft Outlook either by clicking on the Outlook icon present on the desktop by finding the icon on Start-> All Programs->Microsoft Office -> Microsoft Office Outlook

Step 5: Click on the File Menu on the top of the screen

Step 6: Select “Import And Export -> Import from another program or file”. Once the window is open click on the “Next” button.

Step 7: A new window is open and select “Personal Folder File (.pst)" out of the multiple options. Click on Next-> Browse button. Find the location where you have save the PST file.

Step 8: Click “Next” followed by clicking “Finish” to finish the importing process. Restart the outlook to find all your e-mails and contacts stored.

Hi,

Regarding this concern, just simply put a check in the box that says "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" so that next time that you open a file of the same format, it will just automatically open it.

Thank you for visiting FixYa! have a nice day!

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.

How do you burn a cd on this notebook?




  1. Insert a writeable CD or DVD into your computer's CD or DVD recorder.
  2. In the dialog box that appears, click Burn files to data disc.
  3. In the Burn a Disc dialog box, type a name for this disc, and then click Next.
    It might take several minutes for the disc to be formatted in the default Live File System format. When the formatting is complete, an empty disc folder opens.
  4. Open the folder that contains the files you want to burn, and then drag the files into the empty disc folder.

    cdb4d559-8825-47a1-8175-79020965d91c.pngYou can copy files to the disc folder by dragging them to the disc icon or to an open disc folder As you drag files into the disc folder, they are copied automatically to the disc.
But I recommend you to use any CD or DVD burning software like Nero, BurnAware etc. There are lots of free burning tools available on Internet too.

Why I recommend third party software is because you can select burn speed plus minimum disc burning error.

Its regarding nero smartexpress 7,just saved 150 mp3 songs in nero & all are saved in winamp mode but when try to play the saved song in nero, winamp player doesn't open it is only the nero default...


Try loacting one of the tracks in Win Explorer then highlighting and right clicking it and selecting Open With and selecting WinAmp. If that works OK then you will need to change the file type association for the WinAmp extension and making it delault to WinAmp instead of Nero.

Change the program that opens a type of file
If you double-click a file in Windows and it opens in the wrong software program, follow these steps to choose the program you would prefer that file use. You can change this setting for an individual file, or you can tell Windows to open all files of that same type in the software program you choose.
  1. Open the folder that contains the file you want to change.
  2. Right-click the file that you want to change, and then, depending on the type of file, either click Open With or point to Open With and then click Choose Default Program.
  3. Click the program that you want to use to open this file.
  4. Do one of the following:
    • If you want all files of that type to open in the same software program, select the Always use the selected program to open this kind of file check box, and then click OK.
    • If you want only that file to open in the software program this one time, clear the Always use the selected program to open this kind of file check box, and then click OK.

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

Toshiba (lap top) satellite M50 has no sound after antivirus scan


FIRST, FOLLOW THIS LINK: http://driverscollection.com/?file_id=33319
Second:
Type in the code and click Download File, scroll down a bit... there should be a blue link that says "Direct Link" Click the link. When the box pops up, Click SAVE. Make sure the "CLOSE THIS DIALOG BOX WHEN DOWNLOAD IS COMPLETE" is UNCHECKED. It may say something similar depending on XP or Vista. After the file is done click "OPEN" Afterwards double click the folder "SOUND DRIVERS" and then click a file named "SETUP.EXE" Note: There may be several files saying SETUP, try them all until a box informs you that you are installing the driver. Follow on screen instructions, and then your on your way to having a sound of a time with your Toshiba. If you have more questions please email me @ ThinkingComputers@yahoo.com . Thanks, James
