Can not find a text document

By Benjamin ·
Hello all:

Here is another strange one for you. Any time I open a .txt document, it opens but I also receive a prompt (could not find document or files associated with it). Although it is not hindering the functionality of the machine, it is still irritating. I appreciate any advice.

Can not find a text document

Hi, It Maybe That The You Need To Re-Install Your Text Editer. If It Is One That Comes With Windows Then Goto Add/Remove, Windows Components, Then Uncheck The Box Next To The Text Editor. Then Apply, Restart And Do This Process Again But Check The box To Install It. Then Apply, Restart And Try Your Document Again. If It Is Not A Windows Component Text Editor Then ninstall The Program & Install It Again After Restarting The System.
Hope I Could Be Of Help.

Did you by any chance change your drive
assignments?One of the problems that can
arise is that windows is looking for a drive
partition that has changed letter assignment.
Also if you know the name of the text file,
you can use the find function with windows
explorer to track down where the file went.

If this usually happens when the filename is long. So with a file name of "Text Document.txt" you get cant find "Text.txt" then "Document.txt" then it opens. If you get properties on a text document and find out the TYPE of document windows reports it as being. Go into the VIEW menu of Explorer and into FILETYPES and find that type (Example. Text Document). There in the properties of that item should be a bolded item called open. Edit that. Now if it currently says use DDE, tell it not to.Or another open is in the open command line of C:\WINDOWS\NOTEPAD.EXE for example, add to the end a space then "%1" - with the quotes around it. If it already has that "%1", then remove it.
