    Default Want To Replace Windows Explorer

    When I click "Replace Windows Explorer" option in Explorer++ it stops me by saying "Please show you have Administrative privileges".



    This is my computer, I bought it and I am the ONLY one that uses it. I know they are trying to help. But this is not helping me. How do I fix this?

    Make a shortcut of Explorer ++ on the desktop. Then right click on the shortcut > Properties > Advanced button > check the box "Run as Administrator" > OK > Apply (don't forget Apply).

    Then open Explorer ++ from the shortcut.

    Explorer++ looks like a good replacement. I remember the notepad++ that I use to replace notepad.

    Explorer++ comes from a different source, so it seems unrelated to notepad++.....

    RightClick ReplaceThis allows you to replace files in Windows 7 easily. It is also helpful in cases where Windows will not allow you to replace files which are being used.

    Pls see if this help you in any way.

    HappyAndyK, What registeringiscrap wants is for Explorer++ to open whenever he/she clicks on "My Computer," or their account folder...to replace the default Windows Explorer. I'm not sure if the file you mention will do that.

    Oh...OK! I guess I misunderstood.

    I do not think there is any way to replace Windows Explorer and make a third-party software as the default.
