    tablet wants to save files to laptop


    When I first set up my new Omni 10 HP tablet it asked if I would like to set up as a new pc or copy files and settings from an existing. So I just used my laptop settings to get going quick. Now whenever I go to save a file it will search for the laptop by default to try and save the file there. Annoying error message, anybody else have this fix?

    It should not be doing that if you are using the Microsoft login. Are you sure that it is not trying to save File history to the laptop.

    ?


    If I go and try to download a picture on the Omni, it will give me the error "cannot find /laptop/..."(laptop is not even on, so of course it cant find it) I can close the error message, choose a place to save the file and it will continue to save in that location (unless I open a new tab (stupid IE )). By default it tries to find the laptop and I have yet to understand why. I really do not want to do a system recovery or anything.
    Does anyone know where in msconfig or regedit I can find this?

    It is most likely using network shares that were assigned in error to the local libraries on the tablet. You would need to do a reset on the libraries on the tablet and see if that fixes it.
