Hi Judy,

I also have FTM V11 on Windows 7 (64bit). One way to fix it may be as follows: go into the folder which contains your User File (your family tree), which will be named something like Coffman.FTW Then drag this file to your desktop and Right Click > Create Shortcut Here. Now when you want to open your user file just double click on the shortcut. This will open both the FTM program and your user file automatically.

I hope that this helps.
