  1. Windows automatically removes .txt compatiblity


    Hello!

    Some weeks ago, my windows automatically removed .txt file extensions. What i see is just the plain file icon now.

    Windows automatically removes .txt compatiblity b4ed1daa-6252-4296-aab9-9bd889f79dc4?upload=true.png


    I also do not the option to create a new text document anymore.


    Everytime i want to shutdown my PC all the options i get are:

    Update and Restart
    Update and Shut Down
    Sleep

    But it never does update.

    Im thinking it has something to do with windows update?

    :)

  2. Generating a .txt based file list in Windows 7

    No, that > bla.txt is the target file to write to. You could use a wildcard in the argument, ie c:\windows\*.txt which would list all dlls in c:\windows. But adding that to a simple right-click would be tricky.

    Basically you would execute fancyfile.bat c:\windows\*.txt, fancyfile.bat would then write all .txt files to bla.txt.

    Generating a .txt based file list in Windows 7

    I want to be able to generate a .txt file that lists all the files and folders in a specific folder on my PC, but don't know the name of any programs that do that. Searched on google a bit and came up with this guide, but it's for XP and I can't seem to find some of the folder options to modify the .bat file. Any suggestions? Thanks

    EDIT: The .bat file will do what I want if it is in the folder I want to do it in, but the option I want to add is having the right click option that it shows.
