    Main Menu problem

    I successfully installed 10.10 on an HP EliteBook 8440p laptop, but something seems to have gone awry. When I go to the main menu and pick anything in "Places", the system starts with Movie Player. That is unsuccessful, of course. How do I get it to open a file manager?

    Open up nautilus with command
    Code:
    nautilus
    right click a folder and open with >Other application >nautilus (or file manager, or however it is listed). Make sure "Remember this setting for ---" is selected first.

    Re: Main Menu problem

    I have a different problem with main menu. I have 64 bit 10.10 installed. When I go to System/preferences/main menu open it and try to check one of the unchecked menu items to enable it. I close the menu and the change doesn't "take"

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Re: Main Menu problem

    Has the menu item you're trying to enable got anything in it?

    For example if I try to enable the group Universal Access in the left pane, it will not stick, because there is nothing in the right pane under it. If I enable Orca Screenreader & Magnifier or another of the three available, the group will be enabled, otherwise it will not.
