    How To Open Last Window/Program (Maybe 3rd Party Program?)


    Hi, so sometimes I have Notepad open and I close off the folder where that text file I opened it from. But then I accidentally close off Notepad, then a second later, I noticed that I needed that Notepad file open again.

    Is there any other method of Searching/Going back to that folder with the text file was in, that I can just type something on the keyboard and re-open that specific text file. Also assume it was some other file or program that I had open, and and want to re-open it.

    Something similar to the idea of "CTRL+Z"

    Something like that. I have Macro Express Pro, is there any command I can do in that? Or any other method?

    Thanks.

    :)

    3rd party AV program

    I'm trying to turn-on Windows Defender and I receive a message to uninstall 3rd party AV program. How do I identify the 3rd party AV program
    installed?

    3rd party AV program

    The message you are describing may be observed if another antivirus program is still installed or there are remnants of a third party antivirus program still installed.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us...b59cebc4f24/how-to-protect-your-windows-10-pc
    Note the statement "If you want to use Windows Defender Antivirus, uninstall all of your other antivirus programs and Windows Defender Antivirus will automatically turn on. You may be asked to restart your device."

    Go to Security and Maintenance, look in 'Security' and see what program is listed under Virus Protection. Windows Defender will not be enabled and functioning properly if there is a program other than Windows Defender listed.

    For further information see the reply of quietman7 in Windows Defender

    You may want to try the steps recommended in Problems
    starting Windows Defender in Windows 8/8.1/10
    to include running SFC, scanning for malware with Malwarebytes and running the software removal tools for any security software (Avast,
    AVG, McAfee, Norton, whatever) that may have previously been on the computer followed by a reboot? List of
    anti-malware product removal tools


    And see Configure Windows Defender in Windows
    8, 8.1 and 10


    If you can't resolve this issue suggest you post back in this thread and provide additional information.

  4. How To Open Last Window/Program (Maybe 3rd Party Program?)

    Loading windows 10 and 3rd party programs

    Sounds to me like the short answer is: When upgrading to Windows 10 all 3rd party programs like Quickbooks, Quicken, Office student 2010, Excel & Word and other 3rd party programs will be erased from the hard drive and have to be re-installed from their
    original disks. Correct? A simple answer YES or NO was all that was required!

    With YES as an answer, here is another good reason not to bother with the upgrade.
