Question about Toshiba 50H82 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Today, i accidently changed the "Open With" funtion for all of my desktop icons to itunes, when i was only trying to fix the itunes icon. Now when i double click on any icon, i.e. Mozilla Firefox (the icon for mozilla is the itunes icon) it opens itunes instead. How do i fix this? Literally every single desktop icon, even Microsoft Word and Microsoft Publisher open Itunes instead of their designated applications. Please help!

This will work, it's a little time consuming and there may be a faster way I am not aware of, but this way is sure fire to work. I assume your operating system is Windows because of the "Open With" comment. First thing you have to do is find where the .exe file for each and every program that is affected actually resides. For example you MIGHT find the .exe file that runs word in c:\windows\microsoft\office. That is just an example, the actual place depends on several different things like which OS you actually have, whether its 64 bit OS or 32 bit OS and if you specified a different folder when you installed it. Second you can either delete the shortcut and make a new one by right clicking on the actual .exe file for the program and clicking on create shortcut OR you can right click on the shortcut you already have, click on properties, and type the path to the .exe in the text box labeled "pointer" or "points to" or something similar.

How do I use my iPod With an HP TouchSmart

<p>The HP TouchSmart PC is a common computer, except it has a touchscreen. This allows you to tap the various icons on the screen for games, applications, and download files, and open your iTunes. Using an iPod with your HP TouchSmart PC is like using your iPod to another computer or MacBook. However, instead of using a mouse to navigate through your iTunes library, you need to tap your finger, or "click" on the items you want to open and upload to your iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Turn on the computer end of the USB cable into USB port of your TouchSmart. The end of the computer's USB cable is the smaller of the two sides. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the other end of USB cable to the bottom of your iPod. Normally, when you connect your iPod to the TouchSmart PC, iTunes opens automatically. If it does not open, tap the iTunes icon on the screen of your desktop to open the application. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Tap "File" at the top toolbar of iTunes. Select "Sync iPod" to upload music, photos and even files from your iTunes library to your iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Select the "Eject iPod" icon in "Device: iPod" on the left side of the screen. This will allow you to safely remove the USB cable from your iPod and TouchSmart. <br />

I tried to download the latest version of itunes but for someone it wouldnt download and now my old itunes doesnt work either. When I click on itunes to open it up, a message box pops up reading...

It sounds like the download removed the existing software.

I would open control panel, then click add or remove programs, then click on itunes. see if there is a repair option with the installer. sometimes there is, but if not, then uninstall it, but keep your saved files.

Then re-install it, and when it sets up, it should still accept your old saved files. That way you don't have to recopy you music, games or videos

The 'error 2" is saying that when you clicked on the icon, there was no file remaining in your system that matched what the program was that was assigned to that icon.

You can find out what the program was, and its location by right clicking on the icon, and then click on properties.
