Dell Current System Configuration Page Not Working, SysProWMI Class IE Addon Issue

In attempting to get the current system configuration, via the Dell website, for my Dell D420 laptop I continued to run into issues. I originally thought that it must be an Internet Explorer cache problem, then went on to believe that it was a Internet Explorer add-on issue, then I thought it might be IE security settings, and the end result was I was able to get it working but I am not 100% sure as to what the problem was.

The error was the fact that no matter what I tried, which I will go into detail about below, I could not get the “Current System Configuration” on support.dell.com to analyze my system consistently. I did finally stumble across a URL that works every single time without even having to be logged in and it is listed directly below.

How to Change Notepad++ Default File Save Location

Changing the Notepad++ default file save location is easy but the issue I ran into was the Update Notepad++ function was not working in the version of Notepad++ I was running. So I was attempting to modify the default save location which was not yet possible in the version I was using. Finally I decided to check the web site to see if a new version was available and sure enough I was running version 4.9.x and the current release was Notepad++ version 5.2.

After upgrading to Notepad++ version 5.2 more options were available to modify file save/open locations and behavior. As shown below in the image there are now three basic options to control what directory Notepad++ looks to by default for opening and saving files.
