    How do I change the way a file opens? I somehow changed the way my pictures open to open with AOL and it cannot open it. How can I change it back or open with the right program?

    Just go to the "Preferences" on your AOL tool bar. Then, select "WWW", and go to "Web Graphics". Uncheck the box the says "Use compressed graphics". You may have to clear your cache or restart AOL for it to take effect.

    Default file 'open with..'

    I have done something similar. I opened a pdf file with adobe reader and didn't un-check the 'open all with same.. ' button, and now all my pdf files try to open with adobe. how can I make it ask 'Open with....' again? They all have the adobe icon now, too!

    In 95/98 Highlight the file Right clcik and choose Open With.
    In XP Open With is already on the right click menu.
    Alternatively open Windows Explorer Open Tools?Folder Options?File Types
