bmp files in Excel Hyperlinks open with wrong program
I have a list of tools in Excel, and I have used Excel's hyperlinking feature
to allow displaying a picture of the tool by clicking the link. They always
open with Paint, regardless of what I do in the "Folder Options >> File
Types" box. I have customized the .BMP file type by adding "Edit with Paint"
and "Edit with PhotoEditor" entries to the default settings. Does Excel look
for the entry actually labeled "Open" or does it just grab the first entry
from the list? (in this case, "Edit with Paint" is first, because they are

I downloaded and tried the trial version of MS Money 2003 Deluxe, but
Deluxe has no features that I use. BTW, I only tried the 2003 version
because I lost the CD for my 2002 version which I was perfectly happy
with. Anyway, will the Standard version open a file that has been used
by the Deluxe versions?
Supposedly yes. Anything you'd setup to use the Deluxe features will just be
lost in Std.

Bruce...Excel wont open with Norton and 3G running
I have cross posted this message as I don't have a clue where the problem
One of my users has a Sony TX mini laptop (only a few weeks old). On there,
he has Office 2000, Norton Security Centre, and an O2 3G card. Under certain
conditions, Excel refuses to open. The conditions are as follows.
1. O2 3G card and program running, NAV running, cannot open Excel.
2. O2 3G card and program running, NAV disabled, can open Excel.
3. O2 3G card and program not running, NAV running, can open Excel.
This problem only started today. The user has shutdown fully and re-started,

Hey all ...
I finally got past the passport login with my friends money backup file
.... however now Money is saying the backup may be corrupted. It comes
back with this message on ALL the backups I try to open. What's weird
is that is says the converted .mny file (from backup) may be corrupted
.... but the converted file is never available on the hard drive
(apparently money doesn't write it out because it has found it to be
corrupt?)... so I can't work with it or try to salvage it. Any ideas on
what might be wrong with these backups or what I could do to fix?

Please, you don't have to shout (ALL CAPS). I don't see
any easy option to do what you want. But if 2000 is
similar to 2002, you might want to try opening your My
Shortcuts group and clicking and dragging each item up
until it jumps into the Outlook Group. Do the same with
the Outlook Shortcut items dragging them down into the My

How can I manipulate the "Open With" menu in Windows 7? I have applications
I would like to have an option to use on certain types of data, and "Open

list. For example, use VLC to watch a .iso move file. Windows 7 only gives
a choice to burn the .iso file to my DVD burner and I would like to ad an
application like VLC to the "Open With" list so I have the option to also
watch the move. Thanks.

MS Works is a 'light' version of Office, containing a 'light' version of
Excel and a 'light' version of Word. You cannot open Excel or Word files
with Works. You'll have to get the files saved as .csv or .txt or a Works
file to be able to open them with Works.

For some reason, lately when excel starts, it starts with the window very
small. How do I set it to that all the windows open as maximized windows.
I think xl likes to "help" you by remember what you did last.
If the worksheet window was saved less than maximized, it'll open less than
maximized -- but only if you don't have the current worksheet window maximized.
I'd try creating a new workbook. Maximize every window that you want
maximized. Then close the workbook and excel.

When I right click the attachment, it doesn't give me the 'open with'

reason?) and is a bunch of garbledygook.
