    Help, I have read all of the questions and answers regarding how to do this
    but still do not know how to create. I am a beginner and need step by step
    instructions. I have went into my control panel and then into
    programs/default and that brought up a screen with names such Windows email
    on the left side of the screen and then at the bottom of the screen were two
    items listed which I have now forgotten what was listed; however, I clicked
    on both of them and found nothing to indicate what to do or where to go to
    next so please can you give me step by step instructions.

    All I am trying to do is open an attachment to an email and I receive the
    message I need to create an association in set association control panel.

    Thank you for taking the time to help a girl who is going crazy trying to
    figure out how to do this.

  2. What type of file are you trying to open i.e., Word, PowerPoint, Excel, or
    something else?

  3. What kind of attachment? The program used to open an attachment depends
    entirely on what kind of file the attachment is, I.E. a Word document
    requires Word, a spreadsheet requires Excel, a picture might require one of
    several different programs depending on what kind of picture file it is
    (.jpg, or .bmp, or .gif, or whatever). If you have a Word or PowerPoint
    attachment, there are some ready made fixes for these.

  7. Thanks fro sharing your recipe.

    In future pls avoid to write with UPPER CASE ONLY.
    In the world if e-communications this means SHOUTING.
    And it's really bad to read.

  9. Thanks for the reply.
    Normal UPPER and lower case mixture is the standard.
    Right now you fell into the other extreme ;-) ;-)

  11. Its possible the shortcut got damaged. The path to the game is:

    "c:\ProgramFiles\Microsoft Games\SpiderSolitaire\SpiderSolitaire.exe"

  12. You can also right click on the File and choose Open With, or go to Properties and click on the Change button.
