Which operating system ?
Encryption is a method of preventing unauthorized access to computer files.
When you apply encryption to a file, the file is altered so that it cannot be read by others, unless you have given them an encryption key.

Windows XP supports encryption through EFS, the Encrypting File System.
If you have encrypted a file on your Windows XP computer, but no longer want or need the file to be encrypted, you can remove file encryption by changing the file's properties in Windows Explorer. Locate the file from which you want to remove encryption in Windows Explorer.
Right-click on the file, then click the "Properties" link in the context-menu.

This opens a Properties window.
Click the "Advanced" button in the attributes section of the Properties window.

This opens the Advanced Attributes window.
Click to uncheck the box next to "Encrypt contents to secure data" in the Advanced Attributes window.

Click the "OK" button to close the Advanced Attributes window.
Click the "Apply" button in the Properties window, then click the "OK" button.

This closes the window and completes the encryption removal process.
Open Encrypted Files

Windows XP supports file encryption through EFS, the Encrypting File System.
You can encrypt files with EFS so that only you and designated users can open them.

You open files that you encrypted just as you would any other files.
However, you cannot open files that another user encrypted with EFS, and other users cannot open files that you encrypted, unless the user trying to open the file has been added to the list of authorized users for that file.

You can authorize users to open encrypted files using the Windows XP EFS management tools.
Click the "Start" button, then click the "My Computer" icon on the Start menu.

This opens the My Computer window. Navigate to the encrypted file for which you want add an authorized user.


Right click the encrypted file, then click the "Properties" link in the context menu. This opens the Properties window.

Click the "Advanced" button in the Properties window.
This opens the Advanced Attributes window.

Click the "Details" button in the Advanced Attributes window.
This opens the Encryption Details window.

Click the "Add" button in the Encryption Details window.
This opens the "Select User" dialog box.

Click the user you want authorize to open the encrypted file, then click the "OK" button.
This closes the dialog box.

Click the "OK" buttons in the Encryption Details and Advanced Attributes windows to close them. Click the "Apply" button in the Properties window, then click the "OK" button to close the window and complete the process.

Lost your File Menu in IE (Internet Explorer)? PC's/Laptops


Do the following to retrieve your File Menu. Lock the ToolBar instructions as well, and how to minimize and maximize (restore) your IE screen.

Alt - F. This will bring up the file menu.
Use the arrow keys to scroll over to the "View" tab.
Select Toolbars, (do not click) and move the mouse over to "Menu Bar" and click if there is not a check mark.
Once this is checked, the File Menu should stay. Close out IE and re-open to save the changes. The file menu should then remain at place. You can also "lock" the tool bar as well: Follow these same steps: this time at the bottom of the list under Toolbars: make sure the Lock ToolBar is checked. If not, if desired, click this.
Also, if this does not work, you may have accidentally hit the F11 button which maximizes the screen to "Full View". If this is the case, simply push the F11 buttom to minimize back to original size. If the screen minimizes to it's smallest view setting, simply click the box in the middle (next to X close out button), and it will Maximise the screen, but to normal size, and the file menu will remain as well. If the file menu is not there, hit F11 again, and then if still not there (making sure screen is at normal view). Follow the instructions above to retrieve the file menu.

Open solution center> Settings> Scan settings> Scan to setup> Then in this window click on Restore defaults> Then apply or ok and close all the windows and try to scan from the
All-In-One printer.

Go to:
My computer>C:windows>system32
