In several applications, when I click on file/open my cd rom drive comes up in the Look in area.  It has my cd rom drive listed and then says it can't find anything (there is nothing in the cd drive).  How can I change the default to look in my c:\ drive.

Give this a go
Windows\inf\shell.inf Reset All Associations

The solution is to go to Windows\inf\shell.inf and right click on the inf file, then Click Install. This resets all associations to their default.

Let me know

Will my email signature work in Office 365?

You've built an email signature using raw HTML code in Office 365, but you can't review how it looks with Transport Rules. So you have to test it over and over again before it can be used. Isn't this a bit of a waste of your time? Wouldn't a WYSIWYG editor make it a lot easier?

Question has a verified solution.
