Change the file associations in Windows. Right click a file you wish to open and then select the OPEN WITH option and then select CHOOSE PROGRAM. If the application you wish to use is NOT in the PROGRAMS list, use the BROWSE option to locate the one you want. Check the ALWAYS USE THE SELECTED PROGRAM TO OPEN THIS KIND OF FILE option and then click OK You can do this for any other file types that are wrongly associated. It may be worthwhile finding out what caused your file associations to get messed up in the first place. You may have a virus.

Micro sd card password locke how to open solution mail id: [email protected]

One thing to note is that, the file explorer software may not work in all phones. It is surely supported in all Nokia's s60 phones (higher generation), but I have seen it working in other phones too. Just give it a try.

Hope this one solved your problem. If you have additional doubts, please come back to us.

Downloading

When you open the file, Windows may be trying to open it with the wrong program. It may be trying to open a picture file with Notepad, which would result in numbers and unreadable characters. If this is the problem, right click on the file, choose "Open With", and choose the appropriate program.

I can't get files to come up

Hi, Based on your post/description, it would seem that most of your document/aaplication file associations have been moved over to notepad. This is only possible if: 1. Somehow you have lost/deleted your word processing application and all others; 2. Virus/malware infection which changed file association; 3. Registry change/fault; 4. System/Application files corrupted. Actions you can try: a. Scan your system for virus/malware b. Apply/follow Microsoft's recommended repair/changing of file association in c. Repair/Modify/Reinstall all your applications d. Worst case scenario is you may have to reinstall your OS and of course thereafter all your applications. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

I can't open files

whatever you are downloading and trying to open is something that you have not got the software associated with it to open it and either you have chose notepad to open up the file or windows as selected it as default as it cannot find a programme that you have installed to open it. If you know that you have an associated programme, right click on the file select open with and then browse for the required programe.
