Downloading files using Edge, folder won't auto open?

Question: Downloading files using Edge, folder won't auto open?

Hello,

Trying to rely on using Edge over IE.

Small things like this are annoying me:

Download a file and then I click on the section to 'open folder'.

The Downloads folder opens, but just stays at the bottom, it doesn't pop up.

The file I just downloaded is there somewhere, but it isn't highlighted like it used to be in IE.

Is it in the settings to fix this by any chance?

Thanks!

Preferred Solution: Downloading files using Edge, folder won't auto open?

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/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Downloading files using Edge, folder won't auto open?

It does open, just opens behind so you can't see it. This still happens in latest build. There are lots of complaints on Feedback app - you could add a "me too" but I guess they'll fix it sometime.

Answer:windows auto downloading .zip not asking to save or open

I presume you mean Internet Explorer is doing this. Anyway, Google says you should try this
Start->Control Panel->Folder Options->File Types tab->Find ZIP->Advanced->Check Confirm open after download.

Hey everybody! I am currently running Firefox 3.01,which is great. In Firefox's options menu I have set the browser to download files to a custom download folder in windows (Xp). My question is, is it possible make windows automatically open the download folder after a download completes, and how can it be done?
 

Answer:How to auto open a folder

Well, you can write a script to do that. Some file utilities will do that. But it reduces your security substantially.

Hi, one thing that's bugged me for a while about Windows 10 is that when I delete a folder and I have that folder open in another window, instead of that open window auto-closing (like it used to do on Windows 7) it instead takes that window up a directory.

Am I not seeing an obvious check box that can resolve this?
Any help would be greatly appreciated and I apologise if this is a really simple thing to do

Answer:Making an open window auto-close when the folder to it is deleted?

I don't seem to remember that being the case on 7, but will allow for error.

If there is a change that could be made for this, I'd be interested too, just not sure there is.

Hi guys

Just to get it out of the way, I have already searched the forum for help (and the web),
and I already found a thread in here explaining what to do
write techspot.com in front of /vb/all/windows/t-5750-Access-denied-to-a-folder-merged-with-Partition-Magic.html
(i can't post links because i'm new here)

But, I can't find the freakin' security settings in Partition Magic

I've been looking through them all "general, view, disk, tools and so on"
but anything saying security I cannot find.
Is it me or my partition magic that retarded :-S

I have to admit it's a craked version, but it didn't complain about anything when I typed the serial just -
"thanks for using partition magic and so on"

When I try to access the merged folder this is what comes up
F:\g is not accessible. Access denied.
The same thing a unformattede harddrive would say.
So is it still a security thing?
Or is it my partion magic that needs changing?

Please forgive my newbi-ways

p.s
i'm using XP home edition (from dell) if that helps
 

Answer:Folder problem with Partition Magic, can't open merged files/folder.

Hi
Although your issue may be easily resolved

TechSpot cannot help with cracked software - as the cracked software may be faulty itself.

Hi guys!

I have the following problem in Windows 7, 32 bit.

When I create a new folder, the folder is listed last and it stays there even if I rename it, although I have checked the option arrange by name. I can get the folder in the correct alphabetical place, either by hitting F5, closing the original folder and reopening it or clicking arrange by name.

This problem exists only in my personal folder, if I access it from the start menu or the desktop. If I access it from C:\Users\PERSONAL FOLDER, this doesn't happen.

It also happens when I create new folders in an external drive, but only in the route of the drive.

Does anyone else has this problem?

Hello,

I want a program or script/bat file that will watch a folder and automatically delete a exe file as soon as it appears

I will need to include other file types too

Thanks.

Answer:Auto delete .exe files from a folder

I bet there is prettier way to do this, but this batch file will work for you.


Code:
:TOP
FOR /R "C:\Temp\" %%G IN (*.exe) DO del "%%G"
GOTO TOP
If you want to add more extensions, just add them in the parenthesis and use a space between them.

good luck

I pinned the Files folder in my onedrive.live.com account to the Windows 10 Start menu, and also saved this folder as a favorite in Edge, which is my default browser. But after closing Edge, when I then click the onedrive.live.com tile in the start menu, or after opening Edge, if I click the OneDrive link in the favorites bar, OneDrive opens my Shared folder rather than the desired Files folder. To see the Files folder, I can click "OneDrive" in the menu bar. Moreover, after the Files folder has been opened, if I then add a tab and click on OneDrive in the favorites bar, OneDrive correctly opens the Files folder, and will continue to operate this way (the correct way) as long as I don't close the browser. When I saved my OneDrive Files folder as a favorite in Firefox, I experienced the same problem. So the problem does not appear to be related to Edge.
How can I make OneDrive.Live.com always open in the Files Folder the first time?

Somehow my computer was set to open all files that I download with Media Player. I must be a novice when it comes to computers, because, for the life of me, I cannot figure out how to change that setting. I recently tried to download a software driver for my multimedia devices and it downloaded the software, but the icon that appears next to the file is the media player icon. It obviously is not a media player file, therefore it will not/cannot open these new files. Any suggestions to remedy this frustrating set up?!?!?!?!

Hello,
I'm encountering a problem on different computers.
Internet Explorer 11 and Edge are not able to open files from a shared folder located on the same computer.
For example, let's say I typed this "\\10.100.100.10\folder_1\DOC_FILE.doc" on the address bar.
The browser then shows : "This page can't be displayed".
When I display more information, the error "INET_E_RESOURCE_NOT_FOUND" appears.
I have already tried to uncheck "Enable TCP Fast open" and it is still not working.
It seems like this problem cannot be reproduced on all IE11/EDGE browsers, and can be encountered on both Windows 7 and Windows 10.
Any ideas ?
Best regards

Hey all,

I'm using Access 2007. Either way, my users want to use the Access database I've built to store documents (including jpegs, excel files, PDFs, .doc, etc.). To be blunt, I want this interface to be able to handle any file that the users want to throw at it, so I won't have to edit this once they decide they now want to "save" a file type that I didn't think of at the beginning. Now I know that Access won't be able to handle the bloat of the amount of files that my users want to add. Either way, I'd like them to have the illusion that the files are stored in Access. Really what I'd like to have happen is to have the users upload the files using Access to a folder on the server and then when they'd like to re-look at the file...download it from that folder. So Access in this case would just act as the middle man to put the files in the folder and re-load the files when needed. Is this even possible? For Access to connect itself to each documents' save functions from Access? Let me know.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Best,
Zhouma

Hey everyone, this is a Windows Vista Home Premium. Recently, I obtained a legal version of Microsoft Office 2007 ; however, I'm unable to automatically open .ppt (PowerPoint files). For example, when I download a Word document on Firefox, I have the option Open With Microsoft Word, but when I download a PowerPoint file, I have the option Open With Browse instead. When I try and select a program from "a list of installed programs", PowerPoint is not on the list and I'm not sure which file to choose when I am given the option of browsing through my hard drive.Thanks for your time!

Answer:Unable To Auto Open Files

Is Powerpoint listed on the Start...All Programs...Microsoft Office menu? If not, I'd suggest inserting your Office 2007 CD and modifying the installation to include it.

If it is there, then try and open something with it - does it work?

Since the option to open with Powerpoint doesn't seem to be available - it's likely that something is damaged within the installation. I'd suggest uninstalling and reinstalling Office 2007 to try and fix it.

Hi,

I was hoping someone could give me hand. I've not been able to download any files onto my pc (using BitTorrent or Win.Rar). Everytime I try it comes up with the error message "Unable to find the specified file". I've tried pressing "Save" rather than "Open" and it seems to save but then I can't find the file anywhere. I've emptied my Temp folder but this hasn't helped. I had this problem when I 1st got the pc (in 2008) but I have no idea how I sorted it out. I've run spyware and virus checks using Norton and Spybot and both are showing up clean.

Hello,
Our company  website contains a collection firmware and executable for our customers to download. Customers running Chrome, Firefox, or early versions of the IE have no issues. Customers running IE11 and
Edge on Windows 10 report that .exe files download properly, but the firmware files with a custom extension do not. Instead, IE11 opens a new tab and the new window contains a little "X" icon. That's it. Nothing in the Download area. 
Some of our more adventurous customers searched through there Temporary Internet folders and found the firmware files stored as .ICO files. When the files were copied out and renamed back to to the proper extension
(the main part of the name was correct), our product read the files just file. Any idea why are the files getting their extension changed to .ICO and why are they not appearing in the download area. This is affecting multiple customers.

Hi....

I am desperately needing help now...

My external hard-disk which contains 3 partitions. In one particular drive, there are a few hundred .TIF images inside. I created 4 new folders to copy the images into so as to better organize them. After that, I realize I can no longer open the images! They are still there, and their file sizes are stated clearly.

There's a message saying "Access ia denied. Make sure the disk i not write protected or file is not being used". Clearly, the disk cannot be write-protected and the file is not used at all.

When I tried to connect the hard-disk to my laptop, I cannot even access the files as it says "Access is denied".

I tried with other documents such as Word file and it also happens. As long as files are being moved from one folder to another within the same drive/partition, the file will no longer be able to open. It's like a black hole there. The other 2 partitions have no issues.

This is very strange and frustrating. I've never encountered this before. Is there a bug somewhere? Could anyone kindly offer me some solution to my problem? All my precious images can't be opened now!

Thank you very much!

Click OK and you should no longer get those nasty Access Denied messages. (refer to the above link to allow specifically your user account to access the old Hard Drive folders)

Note: in Windows Xp Home, the "Security" menu will not show. Just start your computer in Safe Mode (continuously press F8 function key on computer Startup then select Safe Mode)

I'm in the trenches trying to develop a Windows 7 image for work. This is what I've done so far:
I installed Win 7 64-bit on a test computer and did some customizations ( added programs, etc..). I then ran sysprep from C:\Windows\System32\Sysprep... and the process completed just fine. Okay, so I decided to do further customization of the sysprep process by creating an unattend.xml file using WAIK... Ran Sysprep again - not bad results - but I now notice when I attempt to open any log files ( Pather folder ) or "open" the unattend.xml file I get the following error message:
"Windows cannot find 'C:\Windows\System32\sysprep\unattend.xml' Make sure you typed the name correctly and Try Again"
Yet the files are visible in Windows Explorer...

I have a PC with Windows 8.1 and a Mac with Mavericks. I have a folder on the Mac that is shared with the PC. When I'm on the PC and I try to open a file that is shared by the Mac, such as an ISO file (a disk image), then I get a message saying that I cannot open the file, or the file is in use (it depends on the app/filetype). I have the same problem when I open a video file. Strangely, text files and PDF files are just fine. And if I copy any of the problematic files to the local Windows disk, then I can open them just fine.

The specific error messages are:

- AVI files opened in VLC: "Your input can't be opened. VLC is unable to open the MRL."
- ISO files opened by Windows Explorer: "Sorry, there was a problem mounting the file."

This only started happening after I upgraded to Windows 8.1 on the PC and Mavericks on the Mac. Mavericks upgraded its SMB version from SMB1 to SMB2, so perhaps that is related?
Does anyone know what the problem might be, and how I could fix it?

Thanks in advance!

Answer:W8.1: Can't open files on SMB folder shared by a Mac

Welcome to Eight Forums,

The upgrade seems to be an issue in your case. I'd suggest for you to download the latest driver from the manufacturer's site for your network adapter, see if that helps. I don't think that there's a way to revert your Maverick's SMB version.

Please post an update or your progress.

I am using Windows XP. When I download certain things to the desktop, they don't actually save to the Desktop, but rather to a folder called "Recent." When I search for these files using the Windows search tool, I can find them, but I don't know how to (a) open the "Recent" folder or (b) re-route it so they actually download to the desktop. Can anyone help?

Thanks.

I opened a word doc I received as an attachment in an e-mail and edited the document. I then saved under a new name without navigating to a preferred folder and apparently the document was saved in a folder called OLK96 which is in the Temporary Internet Files folder in User/Local Settings.
Now I find I cannot navigate to this folder in order to open up the document again, the folder OLK96 does not appear in the Temporary Internet Folder when searching with Windows Explorer. I've got Show Hidden Files switched on in my folder options, and other files appear in the Temporary Internet Files folder but not the subfolder OLK96.
I'm sure somebody else must have encountered this problem before, we all fall for the temptation to edit documents we have opened from e-mail attachments, don't we?
 

Answer:Can't open files in Outlook attachment folder OLK96

All I can say is Open another e-mail attachement, on the file menu click properties (of the file), on the general tab copy/paste the Path.

eg..

C:\Documents and Settings\ziggy\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\OLK48

Hi i am running Windows 7 64-bit home edition and regularly clean out my cookies, temp folders from the tools button in firefox, i recently got UniBlue and did a scan and it read over 6,000 files in this folder "C:\Users\Kyle\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Low\" however when i go to my windows explorer and look for this file, i am cut off at ...\Microsoft\Windows\. There are 12 folders available for me to look through yet looking at the properties tab of \Windows\ shows over 120 folders in \Windows\ and most bugs like to hide in temporary internet files. Does anyone know how to unlock that file so i can do it myself?

PS
No, clocking delete internet history,cookies, and recent files does NOT work in firefox or IE

Answer:Cannot open Temporary Internet Files Folder in AppData

Run Treesize Free -- see what it finds in the ...\low folder.

You should see \Content.IE5 folders (related to IE) + \AntiPhishing and possibly some temp files.

In one folder that contains photos, many of them refuse to open. The message "Photo gallery cannot open this photo because you do not have permission to access the file location" is displayed.

Its not a file type issue because many of the png. and jpg. will open while others won't.

I've tried to concentrate on just one photo which happens to be a copy of another photo which does open. I've gone through the Properties>Security>Advanced>Owner technique to find CURRENT OWNER is "unable to display current owner". When I click EDIT, I see a random group of numbers. When I try this procedure on a photo which will open, I get the same random group.

One more thing when comparing a working photo and a non working photo. When I open a working photo's PROPERTIES then go to SECURITY, there is a group of user names or numbers. When I open a non-operating photo's PROPERTIES, then go to SECURITY, I am given the message "To continue, you must be an administrative user with permission to view this object's security properties".

What could be causing this problem. I hate to lose these files.

Using Win 7

I cannot find a solution to this by searching the internet. I get everything but what I'm looking for.

Let's suppose that I have an open folder in explorer that contains a very large number of file. Let's suppose that these files are sorted alphabetically, as is usually the case. It used to be that I could highlight on a file at the top of the list, and then press a letter on the keyboard, and the highlight would jump to the first file starting with that letter. Now what is happening is the cursor jumps to the search box and tries to initiate a search with the letter I just typed. Explorer is assuming that I want to do a search rather than scroll down through the list of files. Somehow a switch has been changed since the initial install of windows and I can't find that switch. Anybody got any ideas how to change this back to the way it was originally?

Thanks

Hi
 
I need help with my Lenovo T440 laptop with Win7, 4th gen I-5 with SS drive. I developed a problem that I cannot left mouse click any program, folder or file( pdf, word etc.) on the desktop. If that happens, I can first still right click and "open" them, but after a few minutes, it will not work. The only way I can recover is to restart the computer. Sometimes, It even got stuck in "shutting down" screen and I had to push and hold the power button to force turning off the computer.
 
BUT if I have any program, folder or webpage opened before it fails, I can still use those to open files in the folder, open files in the programs.
 
The computer is fast even after it failed, I can get on web, open pdf files download from the web on the internet. I just cannot open anything on the desktop.
 
The steps I did:
1) I tap the F12 key upon starting up and got into the diagnostic mode. I ran every single diagnostic tests available, including Smart Status, Smrt Short Self-test, Ramdom Seek Test, Funnel Seek Test, Targeted Read Test. I ran the Memory extended Test and all other memory test. I ran all the other tests in the diagnostic page that I forgot the names. Took me over 5 hours to complete the test.
2) I ran the hard disk test in "Computer/properties/tools and check the hard disk.

I recently bought a second internal dvd drive, physically installed it, plugged it into the last remaining SATA port on the mother board.

When I inserted a data dvd, autoplay popped up giving me one option - to open folder to view files with Windows Explorer. When I clicked that option nothing happened.
When I insert a blank dvd, Nero opens its burning app as it is set to and I'm able to burn a dvd on that drive. Nero is also set to verify the compilation which it does with no problem.
When i reinsert the same dvd, the same option pops up with the same result - nothing.
When insert an audio cd, Winamp will play the cd but I'm not able to "open" the cd with Windows Explorer.

By trying all combinations of cables and dvd drives to make sure that both the cables and drives were working properly, I determined that whatever drive was plugged into that last SATA port would not function properly.

The only options in my BIOS that I could find referring to SATA drives was to enable or disable the SATA controller.

I'd really like to have both dvd drives fully functional and any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Answer:DVD drive will not open folder to view files with Windows Explorer

Hello All,
I am talking about an encryption software that can lock folders and files on windows XP. The version is Folder Lock 6.1.7.

I want to know if it is possible to lock files currently being downloaded from my browser (i.e. Can my browser access the files and add parts to them and at the same time, can the files be protected?)

Thank you
 

Answer:Folder Lock 6.1.7 - trying to lock downloading files

You might be able to find a browser add-on, but I personally haven't heard of anything you can use. You need the files on the computer before you can encrypt them.

Before you decide to use a program like Folder Lock, I would suggest you search this site for "folder lock" threads and read about all the people who have lost files with that program.

On the Nvidia driver search page, after I've selected the search parameters and conducted the driver search, I come to an download button page. I click the download button and I arrive at an Agree & Download button page. When I click on the Agree & Download button, nothing happens. It's as if the Agree & Download button isn't active. Something is blocking the download.

I suspect there is a setting that is preventing the download. What are the recommended settings and where do you find them in order to set this browser to be able to download drivers?

Answer:Downloading in Edge

Hi,
I have tried downloading with Edge and found no problem.
You could try opening the Task manager, go to details tab, right click "Microsoft Edge Content Process" and click End Task. Restart the browser and try again, it might resolve the problem.

Whenever I try to download anything with Edge it says "couldn't be downloaded". Every single time.

For example:



When I click on "Retry" it is always downloaded but replaces the "." before the file type with a "_".

This is what ends up in my "Downloads" folder.



So if I want to download anything I have to click on "Retry" and then go to my "Downloads" folder and rename "xxxx_zip" to "xxx.zip".

Is there a way around this? It is the "retry" that bugs me most - I understand the renaming so you don't run it by mistake - but both are a little annoying.

Answer:Problems downloading with Edge

The Fast and Simple answer is "Don't even bother!" as the best advice anyone can give you for Edge at the present time! Edge is still far from being a working replacement for IE! The Fast and Easy solution is to browse the Program Files\Internet Explorer folder and right click to pin to Start and even the main task bar on the iexplorer.exe file itself and once you start up IE 11 see that set as the default browser. From there you should be able to download just about anything.

Edge itself is still in it's infancy and when trying to work with it here I actually had to stretch the bookmarks out across the second monitor in order to simply click and drag bookmarks to reorganize them somewhat since you couldn't simply drag one up as the first in the order! No delete option found either! It's not ready but presently only a preview form of a browser!

Hi all, this is my first post. I'm not sure which category this fits in, so I'll post here first.

I just got a new Samsung RC420 laptop with Win7 Home Premium edition OS. When I was installing a software last night, a message pops up and tells me I cannot continue installation until I close a certain program (in this case it was Adobe Updater, which was not opened at all).

Today, I am trying to open "my briefcase" from a USB thumb, but a message pops up telling me I cannot open "my briefcase" as it appears a file in it is already open. But nothing else is open on my computer. It was my first time opening anything from the USB thumb.

Is this a common problem with win7? How can I rectify it? Please help.

Thanks,
Ed

Answer:Cannot open folder or continue task because file or folder is open?

No this is not a common problem with Windows 7.

Looks like you need to use the program Unlocker. This program works for both x86 and x64 platforms.

Download and install the program. This will add an entry "Unlocker" to your right click context menu.

Whenever you face a problem mentioned above, on the target file right click and choose "Unlocker". This will show any program / process currently accessing the file. It also gives you an option to kill that program / process so that you can go ahead and do whatever you wish to accomplish.

Answer:How to click a link in Edge and have it open in a new open tab.

I had missed the other threads and they say that there does not seem a way to switch to a new open tab in Edge. All other browsers have this option.

Hi everyone, my title may be a bit confusing but I have to idea how to make a title for the issue I'm having.

So, I'm sure you all know how when you begin to type in a website edge will fill in the rest and if you hit enter it will take you to that website. For example, type in http://www.go and google will come up.

Now my issue is google comes up but not just the regular google search page it'll automatically add everything after the / that I was last using. For example if I had been using google maps a few minutes ago it will automatically add in google.com/maps rather then just google.

I've attached a picture if my description is confusing.

Is there anyway to fix this? When I want to go to a website I was to go to its main page not the last thing I was on, on that website. On my mac Safari does this correctly and Internet Explorer does it right as well so I am hoping its just a setting somewhere that I can toggle on or off.

I can't seem to find a setting that will either clear my Edge cookies or do whatever is necessary to log my Google account out when I close the Edge browser. As much as I prefer my family not go through my stuff, I don't want to see theirs after they're done using the computer either. Anyone know how to accomplish this with the new Edge browser?

Click three dots(top right), select New Inprivate window and when you close the browser others will not be able to view your history.

Please someone solve this without the requisite switch to another browser.

Answer:How to stop videos from auto playing in Microsoft Edge pc?

Microsoft Edge includes a built-in Flash plug-in. To disable it, click the menu button in Edge and select Settings. Scroll down to the bottom of the Settings panel and click "View advanced settings." Set the "Use Adobe Flash Player" slider to "Off."
Hope this works :/

Since "upgrading" to Windows 10 I cannot type 2 lines in an email without the keyboard freezing, the little blue circle showing up and then I have to reset my cursor to continue typing. It is crazy how often this is happening and it is making sending emails unpleasant. Any ideas as to how I can reset the auto-save setting...if there is such a thing...or what else the problem might be. Yes, I am using Edge.
Thanks,
Stefanie

Answer:Is there a way to change the auto-save setting on emails when using Edge?

Hello everyone,

Does anyone one know the parameters, arguments, etc. on how to automatically run "Open Folder To View Files" from a usb autorun.inf file?

Here's what I have so far in customizing my autorun.inf:

Code:
[autorun]
icon=autorun.ico
label=stopads8GB
What do I add to the .inf file to Open Folder To View Files. I've googled this for more that an hour and still can't seem to find a clear cut example. Can some please help? Thank you in advance for your input and responses. :thumbsup:
 

Answer:How do you add "Open Folder To View Files" to the autorun.inf in a USB for XP?

The "Open Folder to View Files" option should be there by default... You shouldn't need to add it for a USB drive.
