    How do I change the app that opens when the system sees an SD card.

    Problem has nothing to do with anti virus. I use an SD card in my digital camera. In windows 7, I would insert it in the slot, then the computer would see it and open a window giving me choices at to what I want to do. I
    would choose download photos and it would open a program to do that. In windows 10,the first time I plugged in the SD card I was asked to choose an app. I chose one that looked right and it opened. It found every photo in the world except my SD card.
    Now every time I plug in the SD card, that useless (for me) app opens. I simply want to know how I change the app that opens when I plug in the SD card. I cant find that kind o choice in settings.

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    We sincerely regret for the inconvenience caused.

    • Are you referring to any third party software or Anti-virus software?
    If you are referring to Anti-virus software then whenever you insert the SD card, if machine found any virus or malware it automatically detect and try to run the application.

    Please reply to us with more information to assist you better.

    Thank you.

    It sounds to me like Firefox is being routed to att.com by a function in the EXE. The following guide might be worth following:

    Wrong home page opens when I start Firefox - How to fix | Firefox Help

    As for MS Edge, this should be configurable through settings. With MS Edge open, click the "..." symbol (top-right) and choose Settings.

    From here, you should see a section called "Open with" that has a list of radio buttons. Choose "A specific page or pages" and then choose "Custom" from the drop-down. This will then activate a box where you can enter the page, or pages, of your choice.

    Once you've added one (or as many as you like), be sure to click the X next to the pre-populated about:start entry - that's the MS Edge start page.

    Hope that helps. If either of those don't work (they're very much first-pass solutions), just let me know via another reply.

    Edit: I've just seen that Google Chrome is on the list, too (I think I was replying to the previous thread over in General Support that didn't mention Chrome).

    The same trick that applies to Firefox can potentially apply to Chrome. Right-click the icon, click Properties and see if there's a URL tagged onto the end of the Target field in the Shortcut pane.

    Other than that, the first place to look for Chrome's startup pages is in Settings. Same deal as MS Edge - top-right corner, there is an icon that is three vertical dots. Then choose Settings. The section here is called "On startup" but the options are identical. If there's anything populated in there routing to "att.com" that's your culprit. It should be self-explanatory to change.

  5. Good advice for deleting the current home page that you do not want.

    To take it a step further, to set it to "my.yahoo.com", you can navigate to that page and then use the settings below to change it to your home page, selecting the "use current page" button (or you can type in the URL manually, if you prefer).
