Hello folks, simple question here,
I have one note 2007 installed on my pc and want to just make a small tweak to it that is a nuicannce in my opinion more than an atcual problem. What i want to do is when onenote closes (meaning the main application) i want to have its tray application close itself. Trust me, it is useful and i have been reviewing this application and like it for starting college but find it annoying how i have the tray application open even when the program is closed. If someone could tell me how to do this it would be appreciated. And i do know about disabling the icon but i dont want to do that as the tray application i find has plenty of usefull features.

Answer:Close the one note tray icon automatically when one note is closed

I have a problem and I want to know if is there any solution that could help me.
I wrote a note on my note gadget on windows vista but accidentally I deleted it and I want to know if there is any way to recover the info I had in it.
Thanks for your help!

Answer:How to recover deleted note on vista note gadget

There will be still something remaining in the file where Sticky Notes save the notes to. This can be found in

%AppData%\Microsoft\Sticky Notes\StickyNotes.snt

put this in search bar and you'll get a file in search results, click on it and then open it with Notepad. you'll find all your important notes in it.

I've found a few posts from people whose Windows 7 sticky notes program isn't opening. I've got a different problem.

Mine opens fine, and I can use it like normal...except when I click the little X to close a sticky note I no longer need, nothing happens. There's no warning for confirmation, and nothing deletes. It just sits there.

So this means that any time I accidentally click a +, there's another sticky note I don't want. Every time I'm done with one, it's an extra blank.

If I delete stickynotes.snt, then it does clear them all out, and when I open Sticky Notes the next time, it's back down to one small note. But that, of course, is an all-or-nothing way of deleting them!

I'm almost wondering if the warning that used to pop up still is, but is showing way off my screen somehow, so nothing deletes, because I'm not clicking "okay" to confirm it. Is there any way to find out?

Or... I do have another Windows 7 computer with the program working fine on it... is there a file somewhere that I could copy from that one to this one, that would fix it?

when go to the start menu and write sticky notes i can see all of my notes before my laptop died but when i click on them a blank not pops up how do i get back my old notes? I've tried:
1.restoring my computer to an earlier date
2.restarting it
3.restoring it from the menu right when it turns on
4.clicking the notes
5.and clicking the actual program (sticky notes)

Answer:problem with my stick note program


i can see all of my notes before my laptop died.....restoring it from the menu right when it turns on

I"m not sure I understand you. Are you saying that you can see all of your saved Sticky Notes from before you restored your computer to Factory Defaults, but when you try to open it, it comes up blank?
If you restored your computer to Factory Defaults, then this erases all your files, you shouldn't be able to see any of your previous notes.
You can try Recuva to try and recover your lost notes.

Okay i'll give you a little background.

I needed to use the "£" symbol, but my keyboard is set up with the alternate configuration of keys (ie where " and @ for example are muddled up sometimes), so i tried to change the keyboard driver thinking this was the problem, i looked underneath the keyboard and found it was made by "ortek" so i installed the "ortek" keyboard driver, it asked me to reboot and i clicked on yes or whatever the prompt is, BUT, when windows restarted i found the keyboard AND mouse had both been disabled somehow, NEITHER will respond when windows loads!!! And there is NO WAY as of yet to correct this as the drivers are detected as working fine! I tried plugging in a USB mouse and keyboard but they did not get installed for some reason.
This is a MAJOR problem as either i have to re-install windows OR buy a new hard disk!!!!!!

I am the owner of a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 and a Toshiba v63700-b. The galaxy note can not support hdd because the tablet can not support enough electricity for the hdd. Is there a way to use the hdd on the tablet using a Y-cable and a USB adapter? Thanks in advance.

Answer:Galaxy note 10.1 and USB harddrive problem

I'm not sure what exactly you are proposing to do - if you want to take two USB connectors from the external drive, feed them into a Y connector and plug one USB into the tablet, most likely it will not work. Your best bet is to use an external drive with its own power supply.

Answer:Note book starts and cooling Fan problem

Hi Mohsin,
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
I?m sorry to hear that your 3000 N200 Laptop has cooling fan issues and after using the computer for certain point of time it slows down, I suggest you to perform the Flee-Power and BIOS reset. Below are the steps to check and resolve the issue:

Remove the battery and any other peripheral device connected to the computer.
Hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then connect only the AC Adapter and try to turn ON the computer.
If the issue persists even after performing Flee Power then resetting BIOS to its defaults should resolve the issue
Now access the BIOS menu press F1 when the Lenovo logo appears on the screen while the computer is starting up.
Then to reset the BIOS to its defaults click on ?F9? Key and select YES.
Now Click on ?F10? Key to safe the changes that are done in BIOS, restart the computer and check if the issue is resolved.

Hope this helps!!!
Do post us back for further queries.
Best Regards

Answer:Battery problem with my 3000 note book

I would check the power management settings to see at what point it is set to charge the battery.  The fact that yours will run on battery at all is a different set of circumstances that experienced by others.
Your display problems seems like a contact connection problem of some kind it he panel or with a wire.
You didn't included your serial number so I can't determine whether you are in or out of warranty.   If in warranty I would certainly call support and get the machine serviced.
Could you send me your serial number?

Previous Technical Preview builds my screen was real dim and the brightness was set to the highest. This build the brightness has returned. I tried doing driver updates and i had the latest. I contacted MS and they said it was a known issue. Well build 10049 fixed it and the screen is back to normal. Also I didn't have sound I have the Realtek High def sound driver. Well I was playing with the setting under properties and I saw a setting that toggled between surround sound and stereo. On the side there was a test sound button that was disabled. I switched the toggle from surround sound to stereo and the test sound button was enabled. I clicked it and it did a speaker test. I then went to Youtube and played a video and I had sound.

Have you installed a toolbar or something? Some get installed when you installed other software. Also, what browser do you use? And does "" open at startup of the browser?
The pages opened on startup can be easily edited:
1. Go to the settings of your Internet-Browser. Try to find the place where you can select which pages will be opened on startup.
2. Change it.
3. Done! is also not a used domain right now. As you may see; the page tries to sell you the domain. This means that the domain is registered, but not used currently.
I don't think is a bad site. By Googlin' it you get the text: You found, so will your customers. It's a great label for your website and will help you define your identity on the Web.
Also; My Norton Antivirus doesn't report it as bad.

Is there any help with using Combofix?

I Think this may help, as my computer bleeps very regularly! I've been putting up with it for a long time.

Currently running Comodo Security Suite for Firewall, virus, and spyware protection.

Operating System - Windows XP
Service Pack 2
32 bit
1.67 GHz, 256MB RAM



Answer:Note to Self

You are seriously under - memory. Only 256Mb means that there is a lot of swapping to the hard drive going on. I'd bet the hard drive activity light stay pretty much on.

I would suggest going to at least 1Gb of memory. If you can post the make and model I might be able to be of more help. If it is a no name brand then what make and model of motherboard please.

1.6Ghz can run OK with enough memory.

Also you should be running SP3. Once the memory is upgraded and it is running OK then that should be the next step.

Question: A net for a note

Yes, I, the big shot here, have a question for you. :P

Let's start out by saying, my netbook; light, superb battery life, enough "umph" to run the basics.

The thing that bugs me about it is; The screen being only 10.1", a little small for viewing webpages; It's not like "sloooow", just want it a little bit faster, higher than max 2GB RAM and Atom processor.

I currently run Ubuntu on it, yet it is still a bit slow. As much as I have learned to like Ubuntu, it really isn't working on here. Works great with my HDPC, EeeBox EB1006HB, though.

Can I, perhaps, sell my Eee 1005HA netbook, for ~$100, and give ways some of the money for a new one?

This is what I'm looking for:

At least a 15" LCD
Intel i3/AMD equivalent
Any capacity HDD/SSD
As long as the battery lasts more than 1 hour, I'm happy.
Windows 7 Home Premium is fine.
I think everything else is standard.

Price I'm looking for is max $500. This is not a gaming laptop, a simple on-the-go PC.

Please stay in Newegg.

(please don't mention HP's)

Question: One Note

I know OneNote 2k7 used to have a "Print To Onenote" plugin, and i cant for the life of me find this. I've been in need of pulling in PDF's to some of my notes and i cannot figure it out.

Also, how does Onenote react if i move the notebook directory? I want to move it to my dropbox folder (other stuff in dropbox so changing that is a no-go), so i have easy access to my notes on my desktop.

Answer:One Note

When you install OneNote there should also be a OneNote printer driver and you simply print to that. Also a notebook directory can be anywhere, just move the notebook directory to where you want and open it from within OneNote and it should become a tab on the left. In windows 7 I simply pin OneNote tee the tank bar for quick access.

Question: Note on Codecs

Hey all,

I just recently reformatted my machine and performed a restore of the data that I had backed up, including my multimedia content.

I now find I am having difficulty playing many of my MP3 files and even MPEG video files as well.

I have a couple of quick questions: Is this simple a codec issue, or perhaps an issue with the files after restore?

Also, is there a way to tell Windows Media Player to find codecs (Other than the "Download Codecs Automatically" setting - which obviously hasn't worked), without installing an entire program with more media players and tools, etc.

I took a look at some codec packs as - All I want is the codec to be used in WMP, I don't want any more software.

Feel the squeeze ladies and gentleman, feel the squeeze.

Time is Running Out for Win 2K users.


Full, free support for Windows 2000 officially ends on June 30th, 2005. After that deadline, the both client and server versions of Windows 2000 will go into the "extended" support cycle, where they will charge for it.

Last year, Microsoft announced that there would be a security-centered update rollup instead of releasing Service Pack 5. The rollup is going to require Service Pack 4 as a prerequisite. The update is due in mid-2005, but so far there has been no news on its progress.

Under the Microsoft's terms of support, they will only provide security-related patches during the product's extended support cycle. Non-security fixes are only available with a hot-fix agreement plan. Anyone without this service will not have access to these updates.

Windows 2000 is still the operating system of choice for many people and businesses. As this product moves into its extended support cycle, Microsoft is urging customers to migrate to Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.

Answer:Win 2K users, take note!

This is to rid the millions of copies of XP that must be trashed before Longhorn.

I am running Win 7 on a Dell XPS M1210. It a 1GB hard drive, which, initially, ran Win 7 fantastically. That was a week ago. Now, I turn it on ( with NO cords accept the power cord), the RAM indicator shows 75%. As I type this, I only have this window open, 83%. I am waiting for another mem. stick to put in it. Until then what can I do to free memory for RAM? I have tried messing with the paging system, but I was not comfortable doing that. Fortunately, I knew what I changed, so I changed it back QUICKLY because I did not see any progress.

Answer:Note enough free RAM

HiHave you checked to see nothing is using up the RAM? No programs running that are ram hogs, nothing running that shouldn't be? What about virus checking? No malware chewing up the system?Just a few things I could think of that I'd check if I had that problem.CheersRazor

We get a fair number of emails as you can imagine, and we try to respond to all of them (although at busy times some slip past us). I'm seeing more and more replies to AOL users bouncing, and this is no doubt the result of AOL's silly and draconian anti-spam measures. If you have emailed me from an AOL adress and haven't had a reply, that will be the reason.

Answer:AOL users please note

I have today posted this note of complaint to Oftel click here I would recommend everyone who has encountered this to post a similar complaint. I don't yet know if they have any jurisdiction, but a large enough volume of complaints may make them take some notice anyway. ------------------------------------------------- AOL have instituted a "SPAM" blocking regime, which routinely blocks legitimate and legal non-spam emails from private individuals and businesse to AOL users. Their policy/technology blocks all emails from specific ISPs when inuse - not merely those shown to be containing "SPAM". I know this to have been applied to all emails from Wanadoo Spain at one time - and have reprots that it has been applied to other ISPs, including UK based ones. I feel this is unwarranted and illegal interference with legitimate communications traffic, and would like to see them told to caese this policy and fix their technology. -------------------------------------------------

Question: Galaxy Note 4

Anyone know how this phone stacks up today? Still worth using or will it run poorly?

Answer:Galaxy Note 4

Moved to Android.
Honestly, this is a question for AndroidCentral if anything. If you ask here, you'll get more responses about Android's inferiority than would probably be helpful.
In my opinion, it's a competent phone and it'll work but I would look into using a custom ROM for up-to-date software. (but I believe you'll want to avoid carrier-branded devices in that case, I may be wrong but I believe they've mandated locked bootloaders for a while now)
It'll be stuck on Marshmallow, which'll work fine on it's hardware (my daily driver's on Marshmallow too) although I don't know how much overhead Samsung's additions add and it's probably not getting security updates. (hence custom ROMs)
I have a friend who uses a 4 as their daily and it works for them. I think the biggest question is whether you're getting it for a good price.
It also has a removable battery which is helpful in case the current one is worn out, I think it's a sizable plus, especially since the phone was released in 2014.
