    Default Unable to Open DWG in Windows Explorer

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I have recently got a new (work) laptop using Windows 10 and recently uploaded AutoCAD. On my old laptop DWG email attachments would open easily and autocad would fire up if it wasn't already open (when double clicking the file attachment) At the moment I have to save every autocad file and then open it from the autocad program. I assume I need to change some setting in Explorer or Control Panel in order to change this and stop me pulling my hair out!
