Windows 10 Save-as problem on desktop

I ran into a problem in my computer. I can not save any file to desktop. I can create files on desktop, but for example if I try to save some file from photoshop or illustrator I get errors.

This is a security feature in windows 10. To disable this, do the following.

Turn off Controlled Folder Access:

  1. Select Start > Settings .
  2. Choose Update & security > Windows Defender.
  3. Select Open Windows Defender Security Center.
  4. Select Virus & threat protection, and then choose Virus & threat protection settings.
  5. Under Controlled folder access, turn it on or off.

Using Assoc command to associate an extension to program in Windows

I wanted to associate .php extension to sublime text editor but windows 10 was not going to make it simple..
After some googling and researching I found an answer.

STEP 1

First you need to get the associated name of your file type. In the command prompt (be sure to run as Admin) run the following

assoc {filetype}For example:

assoc .php Should output .php=phpfile
“phpfile” this is what you need for the next part

STEP 2

Once you have the file type association that you would like to change. you will run the ftype command on it as follows

ftype {file_association}=”absolute-path-to-application” “%1”
For example:

ftype phpfile=”C:\Dropbox\ST3\sublime_text.exe” “%1”

That command effectively added Sublime Text as a recommended application for phpfile type associations.
Now when I use the normal windows methods for settings a default application it appears without even having to browse for it.

Full description about the assoc command can be found here

NOTES:

If you get a response like “File association not found for extension” Then you need to create an association for that extension with the following command

assoc .(xxx)=(filetype)

example:

assoc .cls=javaclass

Once the association is created verify with command on step 1. Then you can do the the association as in step 2.

Right click context menu is slow :FIX

To troubleshoot Slow Right-Click Context Menu in Windows we need to edit the context menu. Most of the time the problem is caused by some items on the context menu.
Or maybe you have too much items on your context menu. In both cases the following solution will work.
Please BACKUP YOUR REGISTRY BEFORE CONTINUING ON in case somethings goes wrong.

Go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers

Delete everything just leave Folders NEW and Workfolders,
This is easy way to fix slow right click in windows 10/ 8.
