"Always Carry out action" checkbox not remembered.

  skiddaw 23:20 11 Aug 2004

If I tick checkboxes to always carry out the action required such as "always open with the task" or in the customize notification area the action is forgotten. I am running windows xp pro service pack 1. Can anyone help with this problem as it is becoming a pain whenever I connect my digital camera and the required action does not autorun.

are you saying that for example, you select a .jpeg and choose 'open with/choose program' and choose your program of choice and tick the box to remember it and xp does not remember it?

click here anyway maybe.

The problem does not arise using the "open with" dialog box, but manifests itself when I dock my digital camera (drive f) which should autorun the programme for downloading the photos. I have tried to turn on the autorun properties for drive f and for auto running the progamme for photos, but windows will not "remember" the action to take the next time I dock the camera. It also happens with the taskbar hide icons (when inactive/all the time) instruction. I hope this explains the problem a bit better.
