I am using XP, and I checked my instructions as I went along.  I do not have
to press shift and apps key, just apps, and open with is always there.

Hi Wendy,

"Open With", will only appear on the default apps keystroke if Vista/7 is
being used.  If it's XP, (which i suspect Clive's using), you need to press
shift and hit apps key.

Regards,
Barry.
