Problem with right click options

There is nothing to post. If I right click some files to seek "open with" dialog and click on it, there is no dialog window that opens. I don't get any alternative options to open the file.

For instance, I want to open an AVI with a different player but I can't do it through the right click "open with" anymore - I does not appear.
Hi. I tried that. What I am saying is that I can right click an AVI file and the option to "open with" is on the menu. Upon clicking "open with", nothing happens - no dialog, no other options, nothing.

Good grief Charlie Brown
See how this goes. Back up the reg fist....just in case.

Open With - Not Working or Listed

Check your settings here:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications. Select the associated sub-key, if 'NoOpenWith' is listed, delete it.

This setting allows you to control whether the checkbox to save the "Open With" program is available when an unknown file type is opened.


To enable the checkbox set the (Default) value to "rundll32.exe shell32.dll,OpenAs_RunDLL %1".
Return to the desktop and press F5 for the change to take effect.
