Specs: Windows XP, 2.39 ghz/1.00 ram
I clicked on a shortcut I have used several times. But now it won't open unless I click on the appropriate program in ( Open With) program.
Very annoying. Any help is appreciated.

Should be a check box to make it use that app always on that pop up screen.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

What happens when you go direct to the program's file (not using the shortcut)? If it won't open then the problems is with the program not the shortcut.

As regards the shortcut:
1. If you can't see the tick box referred to in post #1 above, use the Browse button to find the program exe itself (rather than just selecting the program from the first list). The tick box should then show.

2. You could try remaking the shortcut.

For any more help you need to tell us what program the shortcut is supposed to open (assuming it's not a secret).

IMPORTANT - Please come back and let us know the outcome.
