Novice: Requires knowledge of the user interface on single-user computers.
If you attempt to open the Microsoft Access README.TXT file or click the Microsoft Access Q&A icons, you may receive the following error message:
Cannot find DESKEDIT.EXE.
This error results when Norton Desktop for Windows, one of the Norton Utilities, has been deleted from your computer. This change causes Microsoft Windows to lose the association with the .TXT files.
In Windows File Manager, reassociate your text files using Notepad, as follows:
