Can anyone tell me why the Folder Options - File Types is greyed out?
Posted on 2011-09-18
I am responsible for a 15 workstation computer network. All workstations are XP Pro and the server is W2K.
I can log into any computer and change file associations (Folder Options - File Type) without trouble, however, when the users log in these same options are greyed out.
I set up the network years ago and don't remember what I may have done to limit access. I am using Group Policies which was set up with the help of a friend who know much more than me about this stuf.
I need to change the association of a specific file type on all the machines. Is this something that is tied to the image on the hard drive, or to the profile that is managed by Active Directory?
I updated an application that we run on our workstations to allow clicking on a .jpg file and having it open when you do so. The machines are giving me an erro message when I click on the file because there is no association for the type .jpg setup and I can't change it because the buttons are greyed out!
