Assign same file extension to different programs - how? by Axel Dahmen
Hi, I've noticed that on my machine files with file extension .sln have been associated with two different programs, Visual Studio 8 and Visual Studio 9. Solution files saved by VS8 are associated with VS8 while Solution files saved by VS9 are associated with VS9. I'd like to learn how this is accomplished. Usually a single file extension can only be assigned to a single program. Can anyone...

"New txt file" missing from right click menu by Zepi
Hi I lately noticed that my Vista (32bit) doesn't want me to make .txt files. When I'll right click on desktop and choose new from the menu I'll get this: http://zepi.kapsi.fi/PropertiesMenu.jpg So, there is no "new txt file" option. This happens in every directory, not just only on the desktop. Is there any way to get the "new txt file" option back?

Solution: Opening 15+ files, or multiple file types, simultaneously in Vista by ananda6359[_2_]
The system shell for Windows Vista has been purposely built by Microsoft such that ... - When files of various types are selected simultaneously, the option to open them is made inaccessible to the system shell, whether through their context menu or the keyboard (i.e., pressing {Enter}). This is governed by file extensions, not by the program handling the files (e.g., it occurs when...

Folder recovery problems by Robert Miles
Today, I tried to recover a Windows Mail folder containing at least one message that I lost months ago. Ran into assorted problems: 1. The backup and restore center makes it rather difficult to recover anything so old that the backups catalog has been corrupted and erased a few times since that item was stored a backup. I finally got around this by telling it I needed to restore something put...

Are my files arranged as they should be? by browniebodrum
When I got my Vista Business laptop in spring I had a lot of problems accessing folders which I'd transferred over from my previous laptop which was running XP, and I kept getting messages to say I did not have permission to open the folder (or something like that) even though I am the only user of the Vista machine (as I was on the XP machine) and I have administrator rights in Vista. I'd...

Explorer Folder SGowing 58 Files Sound Showing 54 by JamesJ[_4_]
Vista Basic x32 sp2 I moved the location of Vista's Media folder to a folder I call Sounds. When I open the folder in Sound to set a wav file to an event it displays only 54 files while explorer is showing 59 ( the actual number). Any reason why the two places in vista would show a different number of files?? James

Bad performance when copying EFS-encrypted files by Helge Klein
I have found what is probably a bug in Vista and/or Windows 7: when copying EFS-encrypted files to a different computer without EFS performance is severely degraded. This is caused by 30 second timeouts during which the copy target looks for non-existent domain controllers. I have described the issue and a workaround in detail...
