Question

Start up error

I tried to get a file to start when i wake the laptop, however this didn't work and I deleted it. However every time I wake the laptop I am faced with a box "How do you want to open this file?". To get rid of it I just click. Is there a way to stop this happening? If i try to open the file in say Word, it comes back with "This file could not be found", if I follow the file path, there is nothing there. Can anyone help.

Thanks for the reply, I've tried it and it shows exactly what i want to start, but does not show the file that causes the error. I tried to be "clever" and wanted an excel walking file to start when I wake the Computer. It didn't work so deleted it. But the computer seems to think it's 's still there.
If you have any other ideas, thank you, and thanks for replying.
Cheers

So let's look closer at EXCEL.

Again thanks, but could find nothing. Maybe it cannot be solved! The box that comes up shows a variety of programs but only Word comes up with a "cannot find "File""
Not sure where to go now
Many thanks

When you have time.

Renaming a file is a basic Windows survival or computer skill. Take the time to learn this basic skill.
