Is default email account type deteremined by type of device?

Q: Is default email account type deteremined by type of device?

I set up an Outlook account on a new-to-me laptop I had been Is device? default type type of deteremined email by account unable to download email for several months since I didn't have a computer I had been saving the emails I wanted to keep and had planned on downloading them into my new computer After setting up the account it appeared the system automatically downloaded Is default email account type deteremined by type of device? all of my email from the server I know this is default behavior which I turn off So I went through that process double-checked to see that all the email was downloaded and went out to my server I discovered that what I thought were copies of the emails were left on the servier I didn't want that to happen I dug around to find the location that I have used many times to do this and couldn't remember or find the location to make this change So I came to Seven Forums I saw the step-by-step instructions go to the account select it click change click advanced and uncheck the box that says quot Leave a copy of email on server quot When I went to the advanced dialog box for changing accounts I discovered there wasn't any such box I dug around some more decided to subscribe here and ask why mine was different In the mean time since all the email was downloaded to my computer I went back out to my server deleted all the email and purged the trash Then I went back to my Oullook and discovered all the email that I had quot downloaded quot was gone After digging some more and callling my ISP service desk I discovered that I had set up an IMAP account rather than a POP account There was no place to change this in this account so I deleted the account and went through the process again When I got to the account type the only types showing were IMAP and exchange There may have been another option but the important thing is that POP was not one of the options Down at the bottom of the screen was a checkbox to allow custom set up I checked that and discovered there the POP choice I clicked that and the account behaved as I want deleting copies of emails from the server as they are actually downloaded I have set up several Outlook accounts on various computers before This is the first time I have ever had this happen I have never seen the IMAP as a default before but this is also the first time I have installed it on a laptop Was it this way BECAUSE I was adding the account on a laptop There was another account on the computer which I deleted and it was a POP account so it wasn't some sort of previous setting that just followed over All I know for sure is that having this as default cost me a bunch of time and effort and some extremely important emails Any feedback besides quot Pay closer attention to what your various screens say when you are setting up an account dummy quot

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello Hagridore and Welcome to Seven Forums!

No, I don't believe the problem is because it is a Laptop.
Email can be very confusing to setup with the different protocols such as POP3, IMAP, and MAPI.

Referring to "Outlook" can be confusing, as it can mean different things.
Outlook may mean the MS Office Outlook client email program, or an Outlook.com email address.
MS has created confusion here imho.
When you say "Outlook accounts" do you mean email accounts in the Outlook client program, or Outlook.com email address's, or both ?
What email client program are you using, such as MS Office Outlook, MS Windows Live Mail, Mozilla Thunderbird, ... ?
Also fwiw, for WEB (online) access, Hotmail accounts are being converted to the outlook "WEB format" now...just to make it more fun

From what I know, setting up an Outlook.com (or Hotmail) email address with IMAP does not work without a 3rd party paid solution.
MS uses their own proprietary MAPI protocol (or POP3) for hotmail/outlook email address's accessed in a client program.
If it is possible to use an Outlook(Hotmail) email account with IMAP in a client email program, I would like to know how!

When I delete a POP account (Windows Live Mail) I get a warning about messages that might be lost...
Did you get a warning message when you deleted the POP account?

edit:
I just looked at this again, and see it's in the Office forum.
So, can I assume you are using MS Office Outlook on all the PC's?
If so, what version(s)?
Also, who is the email provider such as Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, MS, ...?

Saving web pages in IE9 RTM defaults to web page complete (.htm), I always save pages as arhcives (.mhtml). I've just restored IE9 back to beta and it defaults to .mhtml which is what I want.

I can't find a way to change the default save as type in IE9 RTM and if there isn't one, I guess I'll have to stick with the beta.

Anyone have any advice for me?

I have some old .doc files that were created by Word or Lotus Word Pro or Wordperfect Office 12. When I click on the documents I get the error message that no program is associated with that file type. In the "associate a file type" list in the control panel ".doc" is not one of the choices. The closest I see is ".docx" (whatever that is I don't know).

My problem is how can I add .doc to the list of file types?

Closely related is the question of adding a program to the list of default programs in the section: Control Panel\Programs\Default Programs\Set Default Programs?

Some of the programs I've installed such as Mediamonkey, Firefox, and Switch Sound File Converter are listed there, but most of the ones I've installed are not. I know that some of them set file associations when they are installed and that those associations can be changed from within the programs but that's also true of Mediamonkey and Firefox. How could I put WinACE or WinRAR or Wordperfect on the list of default programs? Thanks.



It sounds like you have Microsoft Office Word installed which has the new format for word files. docx. Now with that said if you open your MS Word program and go to the location where your doc files are you should be able to open them with Word. If not you will need to go back and look at association of docx which should be MS Word and add doc to that also.

Have you updated all your MS Office programs?

Hope this helps.

Hi,

I'm building my new all-in-one HTPC/Nas/Gaming Box, that will be running Windows 8 because of File History killer feature.
I want to backup my critical datas daily into SkyDrive, and use my Xbox account to download/play games.
But I'd like to use a local account, named "HTPC" for example instead of my regular Windows Live ID.
So is it possible to have la local account, that will sign in with a live one for skydrive and xbox applications ?

If it's not possible, let's imagine that I create a local account first.
My user folder will be in C:\users\htpc\ exact ?
Now if I convert the account to a Live one (and disable all Sync options), path is still C:\users\htpc\ ?
Is it possible to change displayed name ( "HTPC" instead of "FirstName LastName") only for my htpc ?

Do you have any idea ? or suggestions ?
Thanks

Hi, I have a Windows XP Pro machine on an active directory. I need the login to default to Active Directory type instead of being set to whatever the last person loged in as. For example, the way it is set now, if a user logs in with a local account, such as Administrator, the next time the machine is restarted, it comes up with a login screen that has "Log on to:" field set to "this computer", requiring the next user to go to Options, and set the "Log on to:" field to Active Directory before the AD login will work.

Is there a registry key or some other way to make the system always default to Active Directory logon type?

Thanks,

I've been searching high and low and checking the windows registry but I can't seem to find a way to change the default save file type in Paint. It comes up with BMP as the default but I want JPG to be the default whenever I do a save/save as, so I don't have to change it all the time. Any suggestions?

A:MS Paint default file save type

Here is a work around.

Try this to see if it works for you.

1. Open a blank screen in Paint and save it as a .jpg in the location you want as your default with the name "default.jpg".
2. Right click and drag the Paint program from the Start, Programs,
Accessories location onto the desktop and select copy here.
3. Right click on the Paint icon and then left click Properties. You should see a line like this "%SystemRoot%\system32\mspaint.exe" (without the quotes.)
4. Place the cursor after the .exe and type a space.
5. Type the full path and filename for the default.jpg file you saved (if there is any spaces in the path you need to enclose anything you type in quotes. The final line should look like this

%SystemRoot%\system32\mspaint.exe "C:\this is the path here\default.jpg"

6.click OK.

Double click on the new desktop icon, the file will open and the Save As default location will be where the file is located. If you make the default.jpg read only, you won't inadvertently change the file and a Save As will then pop up for any attempt to Save.

Story time.

I am using ConText as the default program to open the following 3 file types, but I need different icons for each file type.

.eml = C:\Program Files\Windows Live\Mail\maillang.dll,20
.bas = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\vb98\vb6.exe,8
.txt = %SystemRoot%\system32\NOTEPAD.EXE,0

How do I go about achieving this.

A:Use Different File Type Icons For Same Default Program

Hey there,
Try using the program "FileTypesMan" found here: FileTypesMan - Alternative to 'File Types' manager of Windows

Once opened, it'll take a minute or two (maybe less) to load all different file types. Right click on the
specified file type and select the option "Edit Selected File Type" or select the file extension and press F2.
From there you'll be able to set the default icon for that file extension, provided you have the ico files.

There are probably other programs out there that do this exact same thing, but this seemed to work well for me.

Hope this helped!

Greetings,

I am using XP and I use MS Paint for screen shot pastes. I then have to promptly save those files. Now, I know its not much but ev ery time I save, the default save as type is BMP (which I feel is just awful for what I am doing) and would like to change the default to JPG (which I need, want, and love)

Any registry changes that can deal with that?

Thanks!

A:Can you change the DEFAULT Save As type in MS Paint to JPG

When you press print screen for a screenshot
and open Paint, paste and go to save, don't you have a drop down box
that gives you a variety of choices, including JPG? I do.

Or am I not understanding the problem.

I generally use Irfanview for this purpose.

Installing a program isn't actually a special thing, it is just copying files to a certain location and setting some things up. As long as an application is not depending on administrative power it can be ran or installed anywhere. So yes a standard user can install applications...if they support installing without admin power. Look at Google Chrome, it requires no administrative power to install or run.

2. standard user CANNOT re-install windows by inserting a windows disc at boot up!!


Impossible. Windows is not running when a computer boots up, thus no user accounts.

This is a nuisance item but I wondered if there was a place to set these other than doing each as they come up Example would be creating a shortcut for notepad I have always made one on every system in every version of windows and never had this problem The default starting directory is system so every note you make when saved tries to go there and extension Directory or type Notepad Utilities Default by for like i have to correct it I finally noticed that this default directory was actually named in the properties of the shortcut so that fix was done But i do not remember ever having to do that before It seems that when done previously the notepad items either went to the current location or maybe to documents but never to system Default Directory for Utilities like Notepad or by extension type which Default Directory for Utilities like Notepad or by extension type is the location of the program notepad exe I can understand WHY it happens but is there a way to specify that it NOT happen like that In the case of notepad what would be most helpful is for it to save at the location currently in focus If I am on desktop when I create it I would want it on desktop If i am in some sub-folder i would want it there instead Others like paint i would probably want the same quot save to current location quot as i would need the item later at the same place it was before In a similar vein can i set all png files to go to a specific folder And same for other file types

Hi,

Would anyone please be able to tell me what the default font type and size is used by Windows 7 with Aero activated and if it is possible to change this?

I have been hunting round the control panels menus but cannot locate these settings. I can find how to scale them re dpi etc but cannot locate the size and type settings.

Win7 control panel offers a similar 'open file type with' dialog that is in XP.

However I've noticed that there is a problem with the extension MPEG4, MPEG-4. MPEG-4 filetype
does not appear on the list. There are options to 'change" but no "add" that I can see.

How can an additional file type be added? As is, I cannot select the proper program to open.

A:Add a file type to default programs in control panel

MPEG-4 is not a file extesion - this explains better from https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/316992





Quote:
MPEG-4 is an International Standards Organization (ISO) specification that covers many aspects of multimedia presentation including compression, authoring and delivery. Although video compression and file container definition are two separate and independent entities of the MPEG-4 specification, many people incorrectly believe that the two are interchangeable. You can implement only portions of the MPEG-4 specification and remain compliant with the standard.

The MPEG-4 file format, as defined by the MPEG-4 specification, contains MPEG-4 encoded video and Advanced Audio Coding (AAC)-encoded audio content. It typically uses the .mp4 extension.

Hi, it's happened to me before on a few computers a few separate times. Basically after the account session times out and XP reverts back to the logon screen while the use is still logged on, windows will not allow a password to be typed for any user. I can click on the aco**** to highlight it...but a password cannot be typed. Sometimes this happens even when the user has logged out normally and no accounts are open. The only way to get in reboot or the alt ctrl del to bring up the login prompt.

I seen some talk about this somewhere before but couldnt find it anywhere.

Any ideas?

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

I've just been reading some of the tips for avoiding infecion in the sticky posts of this forum, and could not find any mention of using a standard windows user account rather than an adminstrator type account which is often the default for PCs and laptops with preinstalled windows.When you are logged into a standard windows user account, you do not have write permission to lots of the system files and folders.Does this mean in practice that web browsing from a standard user account offers some protection from infection ?I'm guessing that being logged-in as a standard user means that whatever malware gets executed by the browser will be unable to modify system files - though there may still be some other areas where some malware may be stored.Also, I've heard that the Chrome browser runs in a sandboxed environment. Will this also help to block malware infections?Any thoughts on any of this?

A:Is Account type a protection - also sandboxed browsing

Yes, working with a Least-privilege User Account (LUA) offers protection against most malware, especially malware that requires administrator/system rights to become persistent.
The way you work with a LUA depends also on the version of Windows you use. Things changed significantly with Windows Vista. What version do you use?

The goal of sandboxing is to prevent malware to make persistent changes to Windows. But many sandboxing technologies do not prevent read access. So if malware is designed to steal information while being sandboxed, it will be able to do so.

A:Change user account type from System Recovery

What happens when you try to enable the original account or set up a new one with Admin rights in Control Panel>User Accounts?

Have you tried enabling the hidden administrative account using an Elevated Command Prompt? Elevated Command Prompt

If these won't work then try System Restore to before the problem began: System Restore Try it first from Windows and then from the DVD Repair console or Repair CD, or try tapping F8 at bootup to see if Repair console is on Advanced Boot Tools menu. System Repair Disc - Create

I would also try SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker and if necessary a Repair Install if you have access to a Win7 install DVD.

If all of these fail, then you may have messed up your system beyond repair. See if you can make your Recovery Disks if you haven't already, then back up your files and run full Factory Recovery from Windows, or by tapping the F-key given on the first boot screen or in the Manual on the Support Downloads webpage for your laptop model.

If you have access to a Win7 DVD, you can clean reinstall using these tips: re-install windows 7

Is this for Windows 8? Your specs show XP.

It sounds like the account is a standard user.

Hello Piotr, and welcome to Eight Forums.

If you like, you could try refreshing Windows 8 to see if it will set you up another administrator account. You may need to do so at boot. Be sure to back up anything that you do not want to lose first though.

When I go to login to my Dell Inspiron One running Windows 7, my account is listed as administrator. 
 
But when I go to:  \Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\User Accounts\Change Your Account Type\
it shows as a standard user.  If I select Administrator, then [Change Account Type] immediately grays out.
 
Ironically, while on that same screen, it shows my userid as administrator at the top.
 
Also, I went to the  "Computer Management" screen, and where I expect to see an item to manage user accounts, there is none.
 
I need to get my ability to be the administrator back.
 
ALSO - why did I notice this now?  Because my wife was complaining about the machine, so I went to run "Spybot Search and Destroy", and it showed problems, which it will not let me remove since I am "not" the administrator.

Hi,
I recently bought a Samsung T3 SSD, which has a USB type-c port and comes with a USB type-c to USB 3.0 (type a) cable. After some messing around with UEFI, secure boot, et. al I finally managed to install Ubuntu 16.04 on this external SSD and have been happily using it for some weeks now (i did not want to repartition my 512GB ssd in the 9550, not enough free space).
If I press F12 when the laptop boots up, the external SSD shows up in the boot menu, it just works.
To get an additional type-a USB port I bought a (well rated, not cheap) type-c on type-c USB cable. To my surprise the SSD will not show up in the 9550's boot menu when using type-c.
I already changed bios scan mode to 'thorough' like suggested elsewhere, without success.
What can I do to boot via type-c?
Thx!

A:XPS 15 (9550): Unable to boot from USB 3.1/Type-C Device

I'm writing this on a Dell XPS 15 9550 tlhat booted from and is currently running Ubuntu 16.4.1 from the USB-c port.
My solution is inelegant, but faster than any USB thumb drive I have tried.  I am using a StarTech USB 3.1 (Type C) cable that converts to SATA III on the other end where I have a 120GB Kingston SSD connected.
Obviously, I can only use this at a desk or table, but I have yet to find an acceptably fast USB thumb drive.  I'm thinking about doing this from an SDHC or SDXC drive now if I can verify that
a) the 9550 can boot from SD
b) Ubuntu 16.04.1 can see and boot from the SD interface.
I'm pretty sure both are true given the little research I've done on the matter so far.

I have a ECS A790GXM-A (no tweaks) and and AMD 940 Black Edition processor. I had the original BIOS and just updated it to the latest version. Both show in device manager as AMD and processor type unknown. I just tried the chip in a ASUS motherboard (ASUS M3A78-T) same AMD 790 chipset and loaded the drivers from the ASUS cd and the processor shows up correctly and runs a awful lot faster than the ECS board. Anyone experianced this? Is there a problem with the board?

It's recommended to update the BIOS then install Windows (not the other way around)
Obviously confirm all system drivers are up to date

Hey all I have spent the weekend trying to figure out how to change my account user changed to back account Main type guest, can't change type back to administrator but with no luck I have been running this laptop as my main machine for a few months now with no problems however I realised I had a problem when I wanted to change some networking settings on Friday when the UAC said I needed admin privileges and wouldn't let Main user account type changed to guest, can't change back me enter a password or click quot Yes quot hence not allowing me to go any further I went to control panel gt User accounts and saw my account type has been changed to Guest Now I have thought long and hard and I have not changed or had any need to change my account type to guest nor has anyone else had access to my laptop so I can only assume this has been done in the last week or so during a Windows update I'll tell you what I did to try to resolve this below First of all I tried to enable the hidden administrator account while in my account by running command prompt as admin and then entering net user Administrator active yes but as I don't have admin privileges I couldn't even open the command prompt so I couldn't get any further After reading around the net and this forum I found this thread and gave it a try After restarting the laptop and booting into safe mode I was expecting to see and Administrator account next to my account at the log in screen however there was only the administrator account to choose from so I clicked it and it went through the first time initialisation of the account and then showed me the start menu I then went to run the command prompt as admin and it worked I entered net user Administrator active yes which worked with no problems I then went to the user accounts in control panel to quot Manage other accounts quot but my usual account was nowhere to be found So I thought I'd restart the laptop and see what happens out of safe mode When it restarted I was still only presented with the admin account so I logged in to disable the hidden by entering net user Administrator active no in the command prompt run as admin and then restarted After restarting again I was expecting to see my account but was still presented with only the admin account but when I clicked on it it said it was disabled and I was completely locked out of windows Luckily I created a restore point so I managed to restore my settings and was back at square one After a bit of testing it seems my main user account is being removed when I enter safe mode but do nothing else I have no idea why entering safe mode is removing my account I am at a bit of a loss as I can't seem to activate admin privileges on my account but if i try to fix it I lose my account completely I did find this thread but I can't find the download link for Hiren's boot cd If anyone has any help fixes or advice I'd really appreciate it as I don't really want to restore my laptop to factory Even if I do restore it to factory will this problem happen again Any help would be absolutely great Cheers Mark

My keyboard will not function while using the "Ask me anything" search bar, my email application, or the sticky notes application. I'm sure there are more apps that would not cooperate with my keyboard at this point, but my keyboard obviously works while on google chrome and other internet apps, as well as File Explorer and iTunes. Any ideas? Please and thank you!

Today, I wanted to use an application called Zadig, which replaces the drivers for USB type devices. However, I accidentally replaced the driver for the integrated webcam! Applications like Skype will no longer recognize the webcam. Additionally, after checking the device manager, the integrated webcam is now located under USB devices... My computer thinks it is a USB device now. I uninstalled the driver and deleted the driver software, and restarted the computer. However, it just reinstalled the incorrect driver, and it is still under the USB category in device manager. I cannot seem to find the integrated webcam driver  for the XPS 15 9550 on the dell website. Can somebody please help me out?

My PC's been running wierd for about a week now and in that time numerous infections have been found, quarantined and removed. Last virus scan came back clear 'hooray!'... or so i thought...I use AVG free 8.5 and within the space of 45 mins i have received two seperate threat alerts. The first one was exploit phoenix exploit kit type 1112and the second one was exploit rogue scanner type 1148 The next step was unplugging it and drop kicking it out the window until these threat alerts popped up as it proves the machine is still under the influence of something. Can someone please advise me on the 'whats', 'hows' and 'whens' to restore my PC back to how it should be?Many much thanks in advance!

A:Everything I Type Gets Erased As I Type It!

Well, at first glance this seems to be a hardware issue and not a software issue. Something is 'firing', perhaps the keyboard, perhaps the mousepad or buttons. Don't know. But the fact that your scans come up clean kind of confirms this also. Are you using a mouse with this laptop? A wireless mouse perhaps? Disconnect the mouse if that is the case. See if the problems go away.EDIT: I almost forgot: Welcome to BC!

Re the new usb type C and usb version 3.1 I get that the type is the physical connector, and that the 3.1 is the latest standard a port could utilize. What I don't get is the type A to type C connector cables. This is fine for connecting backward to 2.0 , or 3.0 etc. But how can a type A port (and connector) support all the features of 3.1 ? All my reading (dozens of discussions) have not said anything about this. It seems 3.1 requires a lot of wires, more than a Type A connector/port has, is that true, meaning Type A cannot carry full 3.1 features. Or in other words, no Type A port will ever support full 3.1?

Is there a way in 10 to add modifiers or switches to a default program?

For example, I would like a .xlsx Microsoft Excel file to open with C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\EXCEL.EXE" /e "%1 (That is, adding " /e "%1 to the command line of the .exe file)

Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Default Programs\Set Associations lets me change the default program, but not HOW the program opens.
When I click on a file type, a pop up only gives me the option of keeping the existing default, or looking for a different app. But no right-click option or otption to modify how the program opens (as I believe there was in XP & 7).
(Also, is there a better way I could have described the issue in the subject line?)

Thank you,
Ed

A:How do you edit default program for file type to include "/" option?

I would think you should be able to edit the shortcut to the executable with command switches or create a batch file to run using those same switches. Nothing should have changed with this process in Windows 10.
