If you right click the icon for the file there should be an option "Open with". This option will allow you to choose which program you'd like to run this file with. If the Microsoft Works program is not on the list shown choose the "Browse" option. The file for Microsoft Works should be within the C:\Program Files folder.

How to Restore Disabled Folder Pane in Windows Explorer


Problem:
When you open Windows Explorer, the left hand Folders pane is disabled or gray or blank and the folder tree on left is not available.

Cause:
There may be an error in the registry. A required system file is missing or an incorrect version.

Solutions:
Close Windows Explorer.
Start the Registry Editor (click Start, Run, type regedit and click OK).

Expand HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main.
In the right-hand pane, locate the value named ExplorerBar. If present, delete it.
Restart Windows Explorer. If this does not resolve the issue,
The correct solution depends on the version of Internet Explorer that is installed on the computer.Internet Explorer 5.5 or lower
The preferred solution for computers with Internet Explorer 5.5 or lower is to upgrade to the latest version of Internet Explorer.
If this is not possible:
Open the folder C:\Windows\System. Check that the file browseui.dll is present. If it is not present, restore this file.
Internet Explorer 6
Open the folder C:\Windows\System. Check that the file shdocvw.dll is present. If it is not present, restore this file.
Open a command prompt.
Enter the command cd \Windows\System
Verify that the command prompt shows C:\Windows\System.

Enter the command regsvr32 /i shdocvw.dll.
Enter the command regsvr32 /i browseui.dll.

A message will appear confirming the successful registration of the files.

Now restart the sytem and confirm the problem is solved.

I don't know how to download music to my Pandigital frame.


Must be Mp3 format.Music files copied directly from a CD will not play on your frame. All music needs to be converted to a MP3 format, and then copied to your frame. This is really a simple issue of drop and drag after that. Open 2 windows explorer windows. You will find windows explorer in your start menu. Find the removable drive maked pandigital. Locate the audio folder, and click open.

In the second explorer window locate your MP3 files. Drag desired files to the first explorer window.
