Okay - to set the scene.
All my mp3 are in there own folder, with each cd/artist sub divided within.

If I browse a folder with for example "Travis - Invisible band"
On the left hand side of the window under "Music tasks" if I click play all it doesnt open up media player and add them to the playlist anymore.

It know opens up a pop up window with the "move to" and asks me to browse to where I want to put them? I click cancel and another pops up, hit cancel again and it plays them correctly!!

see screenshot

Wow, A guy sure gets to see new things in this NG...:D

First off, before I dive into this, is there anything you've done lately between the last time you ran this function and now? Like installing apps. changing a preference, anything? And when was the last time you successfully performed the "play all" function?

I know exactly what happened you recently installed the move to copy to regedit that was posted in the news section as a tweak mine does the same thing..... If you know how to remove the reg tweak please pass it along....

Can you post the text of the reg file here, so I can take a look at it?

I am at a loss - I use it most days. It only began friday [now being sunday] and i havent added any software. I just did a Norton clean up on friday [have used this multiple times successfully] I ran APK`s regcleaner on thurs. Dont recall any error after that.

I messed around with the folders in the MP3 directory, but all I did there was customize the folders picture to represent the Artist/CD

I also added that .reg file from our site "move to" aaaaaaahhhhhhaaaaaa

Help - how do I ditch that

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Copy To]
@="{C2FBB630-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Move To]
@="{C2FBB631-2971-11D1-A18C-00C04FD75D13}"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Send To]
@="{7BA4C740-9E81-11CF-99D3-00AA004AE837}"

Gimme a bit, I'm still looking up the regs in mine, to see if I can extract the good ones.

This just had to be in the CLASSES too...:mad:

Leave it to lady to post a difficult question :D

<Ducking quick, and running> :D

Ok, heres what I found...

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\AllFilesystemObjects\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\Send To]
@="{7BA4C740-9E81-11CF-99D3-00AA004AE837}"

What I would do is go to that key, delete "ContextMenuHandlers", then import my key. This should work, but do a system restore point before deleting that key, just in case.

Post back if it works...

Either that, or you could try deleting just the "Move to" key, and keep the rest. Either way, I would do a system restore before doing this.

Well here is the result.

If you click 'play all' a menu will popup for the copyto section, hit cancel and it will start playing. Where before you had to hit cancel twice.

Did you delete the whole ContextMenuHandlers key and import mine, or just deleted the Move To key?

That doesnt sound right...

My key should work just fine.

I wonder if you need to reboot for it to take affect?

Wanna try it?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
