    The "Open With" option on my windows powered Toshiba notebook is not working for a few days now. Sometimes it will work but it is strange like MS word is in the options when I try to play a movie. In what way I can fix this?

    Hello,

    Go to the folder were the file is located. Then choose Tools > Folder Options >
    File Types.


    Now look for the file-extension in the Registered File Types-list. If it's there,
    click Advanced (if not, just create it with "New").

    An Edit File Type-dialog should appear.


    If the "open"-option is already on the list, click "Edit", if not, create it by clicking
    "New". Now click Browse and search for the program you wish to open the file with.
    Just click OK.

    You're Done...........
