  1. Open multiple files at the same time?


    When I R-Click on a file I can choose the Open With option to choose what program to open the file with but when I select multiple files and R-Click them the Open With option disappears. Why does that happen?


    Basically I want to open 5 jpeg images in Photoshop but Photoshop is not the default app for images and I don't want it to be. What's the fastest way for me to open all the image in Photoshop from the File Explorer?


    I don't want to have to open Photoshop and then re-navigate to the folder with the images.

    Thanks!

    :)

    PowerPoint file crashes PowerPoint upon opening

    since this happens in some of the computers only, suggest that you open the file on working computer and copy everything and paste to a new powerpoint file.
    most of the time it works to me. *Smile Open multiple files at the same time? :)

    Open multiple files at the same time?

    Open With on multiple files?

    you can do this using a workaround by using "Send to" on the right click context menu in Windows File Explorer. Here's how

    Step 1 - Add Chrome shortcut to SendTo folder so that chrome may appear in the send to menu.

    SendTo folder:%AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo

    This can be done in one of several ways. I will mention one of the easiest below.

    • Right-drag the Google Chrome shortcut that was created on the Desktop when Chrome installed, or the Chrome shortcut in the Start menu, to the SendTo folder and select Copy.

    Note: Right-click this shortcut, select Properties, and confirm that the Target field contains no command line options, just the path + file name for Chrome.

    Step 2: Select the 16 JPGs, right click, go to "Send to" & select "Google Chrome".

    That's it. All JPGs will open in Chrome, each in its own tab.

    I use this with Firefox, but it should work with Chrome too.

    Troubleshoot #1

    If Google Chrome doesn't appear in the "Send to" menu, try restarting Windows File Explorer from Task Manager.

    Troubleshoot #2

    If the JPGs open in multiple windows, you might want to consider installing an extension in Chrome to prevent this behaviour. I suggest One Window.
