Default 'puter help needed...

For some reason, my computer tries to download everything as a "html" file. I can't seem to rename them either. Naturally, these files won't open correctly. Anybody know how to correct this? Please, if you are going to give me instructions, make them very, very basic. I'm not very computer savy.

I think the manual says to drop it from 3' to cure that issue. In your case, just slide it to the right about 2' and the 3' drop will take care of itself!! Right into the dining room!!!

Did that fix on the remote the other day. The Packer game sucked.

If I try to download a file that is e-mailed to me, it downloads as a .html file. The only way I can download them is if I open the file from it's current location and then do a save as. The other day, I was trying to download some drawing files. I couldn't save them as a valid file because they were always renamed to a .html file. Renaming them to a .dwg file format didn't work. The file was still invalid.

They may be sending them as an html file.

The things you are being e-mailed are not associated with the program that opens dwg files. So Microsoft defaults to an HTML and hopes your browser can open it.

You need to go to "My Computer", "Tools", "Folder Options" and then click the "Files" tab. It will show you all your file associations and how to change them.
