Create .htm document using NotePad

Question: Create .htm document using NotePad

MY TASK
I'm trying to create a new *.htm document using Notepad, which I should then be able to view in Internet Explorer by double clicking the *.htm file.

PROBLEM:
I can't create a new file with an .htm extension. I only have the option of creating a .txt file in NotePad. (I'm presuming) that since my file doesn't have the .htm extension, when I double click it I can't view it in Internet Explorer. (I have got the <HTML> & </HTML> tags at beginning and end of the notepad file).

Hi, I am trying to edit somethings in a XML document and save it as a notepad or wordpad document. I open it with notepad or wordpad and it allows me to make the changes. However, each time I save it after opening it in notepad or wordpad, it then reverts back to been a XML document.

Answer:XML document won't save as notepad document?

In Notepad/Wordpad, choose Save As and save it with a .txt extension, or else make a copy and change the extension of that from .xml to .txt

At first I thought it was only my printer......uninstalled the drivers, reinstalled.......etc. Then I tried to print as an XPS document and I get the same error messages. Example error message from Excel is "Your file could not be printed due to an error on Microsoft XPS Document writer". If I try the printer I get the exact same message. From Firefox I get "An unknown error occurred while printing." I have searched everywhere for a solution, I even restored as far back as I could but that was only a month ago. I can print from Notepad and Internet Exporer, both on the printer and XPS Document writer, I can also print a test page and an alignment page. Any ideas?

Solutions tried so far......

Malware scan, troubleshooter, reinstall of MS Office 2010, printer port checks, uninstall and reinstall of USB printer.
 

Answer:I cannot print any document other than notepad, IE or XPS Viewer

I just tried an Office printing troubleshooter page, it had me install a generic printer and try to print.....would not "print" or save the file in either Excel or Word

There was a large document I was working on just about an hour ago. I had saved it, and I reset my computer shortly after because I wasn't able to connect to the internet. When I got back on and reopened it, the document was one massive line of squares. I found a variety of conflicting solutions online, though a common problem seems to be people saving their documents onto removable storage. It was just on my internal hard drive.

I tried changing fonts and I even tried pasting it into text forms online and even opening it on another computer, and it's still just one huge mass of squares.

I have around 50-60 folders that all contain notepad documents with text inside of them. Lets say one of the folders contains a notepad document with the text "popcorn". How might I find that particular folder or notepad document (either one. doesn't matter) that contains "popcorn" withjout manually going through every folder/document to find the one with "popcorn"?

This should help you understand if the above wasn't understandable:

Each folder goes like this:
10-12-13 (the date the folder was created)>10-12-13 Pictures (sub folder) and the notepad document. To clarify, the main folder 10-12-13 contains a sub folder and the notepad document. Now we are back to "popcorn". Say i want to find a folder/notepad document with the text "popcorn" in it. How would i do that without manually going through every folder and notepad document?

Answer:How to search for text in a notepad document (please read)

Hi, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Here's how:Let's say you have the main folder named 2013, containing subfolders for each month (JAN through DEC), and these subfolders in their turn subfolders for each day
Open Windows Explorer showing the content of the main folder 2013
Windows Search includes now the folder 2013 and all its subfolders (Search always searches the folder open in Explorer and everything underneath it)
Type your search term to Search (top right), telling the Search it should search for file content:
Code:
content:popcorn

The search filter content:search term tells the Search to search the content of all files in all files in current folder and all its subfolders

Hi, I am sorry if this is a very frivolous request. But it is more for convenience why I am asking this as it does get somewhat annoying.

But when I chose "save as" for a notepad .txt document I have been writing all the time the option automatically comes up as

*.txt

I then have to type in the name of the document I wish to save it as. However what I was wondering, or more hoping, if there are actually any tweaks or registry changes I can make so when I click 'save as' in notepad. The notepad 'save as' screen automatically pops up and assigns the first line of text inside the .txt file I have just typed as the possible name of the document to save.

This is similar to how Microsoft Office uses the 'save as' option, and for time saving and convenience I was hoping someone may know if there was possibly a way to set Notepad to do this automatically too.

Thanks
Anthony

Answer:Change how Notepad Saves Document Names using 'Save As'.?

Hi Anthony1uk,
Unfortunately such a thing wouldn't be possible without a rewrite of the Notepad application itself.

Answer:When printing from a notepad document it always shows page # at the bottom

Easy...   With notepad open...File ---> Page Setup... ---> Make Header and Footer Fields blank and select OK ( *Note you didnt want page#, but I am assuming you might not want the header info on there too to have a clean print. If you want the header then just blank out the Footer to remove the instruction to add page number. )Now you will have a clean print without header name and page number at bottom.

Hello,

My web searches have been hijacked such that a Google search returns result titles that seem search appropriate but link to rubbish pages. I tried following the recommendations to post HijackThis log files using the DDS program acquired from BleepingComputer, but the running the program yields no Notepad files to copy from. Ad-aware, Malwarebytes, SwatIt and SpyBot haven't helped. Stopzilla reports that my computer is infected with trojans named PWS.ABD and Baracudanew, and a hijacker named Searchhijacker, but Stopzilla wants $40 to fix the problems. Does anyone know how to remove these infections, or how I can get DDS to work properly so I can post the log files?

Thank you!

I just created a text file (.TXT) in Notepad (expecting it to be plain text) and emailed it so I could pick it up on my Nexus 7 tablet. None of the text editors on the tablet can interpret the file (I've tried several times now, including some old .TXT files).
On investigation it seems that Notepad doesn't handle plain text at all - it allows formatting (fonts, bold, italics etc.).
Yet all the searches Ive done on the Internet say that Notepad does not support formatting, only plain text.
I'm using W7. But I've also tried XP - same again.
Am I going mad?

Answer:Am I going mad? Can't create plain text in Notepad

I think you may be using WordPad instead of NotePad. WordPad supports formatting and saves the file as RTF. Your tablet should have software that supports such files if you have a text editor on board.

Hello everyone and thanks for your time.
I have been using Windows 7 for a long time and have gotten used to all the keys, mouse movements etc for opening stuff. Recently I bought a new Laptop with same version of Windows installed (Ultimate). However, when I right click the Desktop, the context menu of New does not show the option to Create a New Text Document. This is proving to be a real pain in the back . I have Notepad installed (by Default as it should be), and double-clicking *.txt files opens it, but the shortcut is nowhere to be seen. Please tell me why this is so and the easiest and most painless way (preferably without the need to Install something e.g. Registry Entry or Portable Program/Single *.exe Program would be better) to do it.
Thanks.

This is probably a stupid question. I got a new laptop a few days ago, and am very happy with it. There is one small flaw and I am wondering if it can be fixed. When I right click and go to new, whether I be in documents, pictures, a jump drive, etc., there is no WordPad or Rich Text Document option. There is Microsoft Office Word Document, Journal Document, and Text Document as well as other things, however, I prefer WordPad to these. (Microsoft Word is okay to, but I only have a trial and I don't want to buy the full version, and I prefer WordPad regardless.) I know that WordPad is on my computer because I can access it through program files, as well as open documents with it. However it is not an option under New. Note: My laptop has Vista (although I hope to switch to XP soon), not sure if this makes a difference. If there is any way to create new WordPad documents (besides opening WordPad and saving a new document) please let me know! Thanks! -SV

I knew how to do this in the old Word, but I can't figure it out in Office 2000 Word. It seems to only want me to do a letter merge. I have a data source document and a basic document that I need to add merge fields to, but I don't see a choice other than letter nor can I figure out how to add the fields where I want them (not as a recipient; it isn't a letter). It was relatively straight forward before, why is it so difficult now?
 

Answer:Word; create form document

I am currently on 2003, so cannot recreate exactly what you are doing, but I might have a helpful suggestion anyway. If you go to View -> Toolbars -> Mail Merge it should give you the toolbar at the top of the window that will have access to placing merge fields.

Please let me know if this helped you any, or if you found another solution.

I'm trying to create what for all intents and purposes is an e-book that includes some animated figures, and I'm trying to figure out the best way to do this.It will be a very long text document (circa 80,000 words), which will need to have consistent styles, automated numbering systems for headings, figures, etc, and a means of handling references, such as what you see with EndNote and similar programs. The animations are currently gif images, and they will need to loop when displayed in the document. The final product would be saved as a pdf, which I understand is capable of displaying animations?Does anyone know if it is possible to get Word 2010 to handle animations, and if so, how? I know it's capable of all the other requirements, although it's a bit dodgy and prone to corruption with long documents, so I'll use sub-documents and a good backup system to get around this.Alternatively, does anyone know of a good text editor that would meet all the above requirements?Thanks in advance for your advice.

Answer:How to create a text document with animations

To the best of my knowledge, you can NOT display animation in a Word doc.If you save the document as a Web page, you can see the animation with a browser,but that does not sound like what you have in mind.Powerpoint may be an alternative, but I'm not sure.Alternatively, does anyone know of a good text editor that would meet all the above requirements?Here is a couple of lists:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_...http://ebooks-software-review.topte...You can probably find more using a Google search.MIKEhttp://www.skeptic.com/

Hi, may not be easy to do this however lets see what you have here. Go to start, search and type regedit the reg editor will open Navigate to:-

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.txt\ShellNew]
and expand in the right payne look for the string value "Item Name"
it should have this entry against Item Name:-
@%SystemRoot%\system32\notepad.exe,-470

If not then right click select modify and copy and paste the above into the box. Reboot to take effect.

If you wish you can select file from regedit and export this key to desktop call it txt.reg and if anything goes wrong you can double click it to merge back to registry.

If doing this worries you just tell us what you see in the registry , I can write you a .reg file to do this for you.

Dear friends,

each time I try to open a particular program (Mathcad 15) I get the message 'Failed to create empty document'.
Then the program goes on but is useless because I cannot open an new or existing document.
In my opinion this is a permission problem because the program runs without a problem within the hidden administrator account.
I tried a lot of things:
running as administrator
setting permissions for the program
taking ownership

nothing works.
This is very annoying because I have a huge library of MCad document I can't open anymore.
Well I could when I login as hidden administrator but this is not a good idea I suppose.

I have windows vista. Everytime I try to open MS Paint I get an error saying: "failed to create empty document". Any online solutions I've read have either:

1. Involved there also being a problem with wordpad giving the error "failed to create empty document" as well, and it's not.

or

2. It doesn't tell me how to fix the problem for Vista, only has solutions for Windows XP or lower.

Any suggestions? I tried going to an online computer tech chat and that didn't me absolutely no good. All that resulted in was my getting angry at ignorant people asking very stupid questions and the tech guys basically telling me I was out of luck because they had never heard such a thing. Please help.

Hi,

I am using Word 2010.

I have a really long Word document with different topics.

I would like to create a Table of content at the top of that document so that I can click on that topic & it will take me directly to that topic without me trying to scroll down the whole document to find that topic. ( Just like a book in Word Format with table of content & clicking the topic to go directly to that topic without going thru the whole book page by page )

I tried to create a hyperlink for each topic but Word created the hyperlink at the same place where the topic was listed, so that doesn't help.

I also tried to copy & paste that hyperlink at the top of the document but that didn't work either.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks

(This is about a different, new computer.)

Computer was asleep early this morning, but after SuperAntiSpyware ran, it dir not go back to sleep. Testing showed that automated sleep is not working. Rebooted, got a pop-up box with the text as shown in the title of this message.

Ran the MS diagnostic for this problem, using msconfig; no luck. Googled for the error, not much there, but did try a few things. Turned off router, so not likely to be a address conflict, as one person was able to fix the problem through that route.

Ran another SuperAntiSpyware scan, a Malwarebytes Anti-Malware scan, one with Avast!, and the on-line HouseCall scan; nothing found. I have run a few of Dell's on-line diagnostics, nothing found so far.

I would appreciate knowing how to inoculate the computer, or what spell to cast thereupon, or how to properly remove the enchantment, or even anything actually related to repairing the whatever-it-is that is causing a probably very useful empty document to not be created. (Oh, yes, CCleaner was also ran, which deleted lots o temporary files, etc.)

==

After posting this fascinating missive, I ran one of the MS Fixit programs, which did find that the Recycle Bin was corrupt and fixed it. I rebooted; sadly, I still got the pop-up error message, but yet one more test of the sleep function found the computer willing to obey its master, as first the monitor and then the computer went to sleep with a one-minute setting.

The problem occurred without warning after many previous instances of trouble-free copying of Notepad text into MS Word 2010. Here?s an example of what happens:-1. I type a sentence into Notepad.2. I then attempt to copy and paste it into an open MS Word file.3. The cursor in the resulting MS Word file stops blinking on completion of the ?paste? process. A few seconds later, MS Word indicates ?not responding?.4. I press CTRL + ALT + DEL to open the Task Manager.5. On doing this and clicking on the MS Word document in the Task Manager and selecting ?End Task?, a message box stating ? WINWORDC.EXE is not responding?, with 3 option buttons, pops up. One of the 3 option buttons is ?Close program?.6. When I click on ?Close program?, another message box pops up saying ?WINWORDC is trying to recover your information?. Then, a few seconds later, the MS Word document closes (but without saving the text copied from the Notepad file).

I just reinstalled XP Professional on a year old Acer laptop and am suddenly getting various Parser file errors as well as "failed to create empty document" errors. This occurs during just about any operation I attempt to execute on the computer, even when trying to access device manager. From what I've learned about these errors it has to do with MMC but I haven't been able to find out what to do to fix the problem. If it would be best to reinstall XP again, I don't mind but what has caused this to happen in the first place?

Creating a simple website for my friend in a band. He'll need to update it maybe once a week w/ dates, showtimes, etc. HOWEVER, he is not technically inclined. I want to make it so he can just type what he needs into a text document (like Word/Notepad (or the Mac equivalent)) on his laptop (a Mac), save it, and have that update his page. I'd rather not have him wade through HTML.

I'm a graphic designer and somewhat technically inclined, but woefully ignorant about this stuff. What program / format would be both good for this purpose and simple enough if I'm only looking to learn this element? Are there any free tutorials online about it? I know Flash and Actionscript, but maybe there is a better tool out there for this...

Also, I'd like for there to be a way he could update photos by himself. Maybe he could have a folder on his laptop with say 3 pictures that he names pic1, pic2, pic3, where if he saves a new photo to one of those names, the new photo fills that slot. Or some better way?

FYI: I use a PC.

This will be a delivery document having 3 copies, each copy needs the same serial number.
The serial number needs to increment by +1 after each print but any information entered needs to be reset to blank.
A user form for input ?
Excel or Word (no mailmerge)
Document will reside in a shared folder on a server.
Needs to be user friendly (Idiot proof!)
 

Answer:Auto create a sequential serial number for a document

It is possible in Excel. I know of no way to do it in Word. The method is simple.
1. Create the template workbook with all the fields you see fit.
2. Copy the code below into the code module of the workbook

Code:
Private Sub Workbook_BeforePrint(Cancel As Boolean)
Dim cdp As DocumentProperty

On Error GoTo NoSuchProperty
Set cdp = ThisWorkbook.CustomDocumentProperties("PrintCounter")
cdp.Value = cdp.Value + 1
ActiveSheet.Range("A1") = cdp.Value
ThisWorkbook.Save
Exit Sub
NoSuchProperty:
ThisWorkbook.CustomDocumentProperties.Add Name:="PrintCounter", LinkToContent:=False, Type:=msoPropertyTypeNumber, Value:=0
Set cdp = ThisWorkbook.CustomDocumentProperties("PrintCounter")
Resume Next
End Sub


The code looks up the custom document property called "PrintCounter". If the property doesn't exist, it will be created.
Before each print attempt, the counter will be increased by one, and the workbook (with the new propery value) will be saved.
The code displays the counter in cell A1, but it can be displayed anywhere, even in header or footer, even as part of a longer string.

Hi one and all.

I have a problem with copying and pasting the lyrics of a song into Notepad so that it is Courier.

If my friend who is a music teacher, copies the text into Notepad under XP, it converts properly and the chords above the lyrics look to be in the exact places.

He is teaching my daughter and has sent me the document to print in Notepad.

This is when the problem begins. I open it up and the chords are not in the correct places. I am using Notepad under Office 2007 version.

So I copied and pasted the text from the website as courier, but got exactly the same as what I got when I opened the file up.

Does anybody have a clue why this is happening?

This is the link to the lyrics http://www.ourwholeworld.com/banana_boat_song.htm , just in case somebody wants to try copying and pasting in their version of notepad. It needs to finish up as courier as that is fixed width.

Many thanks for any clues.

If I had known how much hassle Win 7 was I would have stuck with XP! Well I suppose its a learning curve....

Latest major hassle, I have a text file on my E:\drive, this is a copy of my XP C:\ drive before I installed Win 7 on it.

I have now been able to get to it after changing the security settings, and then tried to drag and drop my Blacklist.txt to a newly installed version of the program (Mailwasher Pro) on my C:\ drive. I was not allowed to do this as "Notepad: Access is denied", I could not open it either to copy as again "Access is denied". What ever I try access is denied. This applies to Wordpad as well.

I am setup, as far as I can tell as administrator, I have printed and read the tutorial - Permissions - Alloy or Deny Users and Groups. but this did not seem to help, when I open the security tab it shows:
System
and a long, long set of numbers, there is no administrator or user information as I have seen in other Security tabs.

It was dead easy in XP just drag and drop or open in Notepad and copy paste across!

Is there a way to get around this problem?

Answer:Trying to copy txt file in Notepad. "Notepad: Access is denied"

When saving a Word 2007 document as a webpage (htm, html), an extra folder is automatically created besides the hmtl document itself. This folder contains background information like pictures, wallpaper etc. Is there a way to prevent that folder from being created in the first place? I've got Word 2000 on another computer, and when I save my word documents as html files over there, that extra folder is not generated. The only time that folder is created in 2000 is if my documents contain pictures, wallpaper etc. In Word 2007, it is created all the time, even though my documents are just plain text.
 

Answer:Solved: Word 2007, saving document as html document: how to get rid of extra folder?

Managed to find the solution, it was very simple after all. One has to save the document as a filtered webpage and click "yes" when a box pops up warning you that you will use certain featuers which are specific to Office2007, such as the background. Then the document will save without that extra folder and files.

I use a variety of templates and plain documents in my work and can not pin point it to one template.

If you leave Word open with a document (no matter what size) and come back to it later this is when the problem happens. I started to get around it my saving first then closing, but this no longer works. The save completes and then I select Close and this is when it happens - you get the dreaded pause and then you hear the whirl of the computer and then you get the Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close.

I have two questions regarding documents created in Word 2007...

1) Can links be created within a Word document? For example, can I click on and item my table of contents and have the document jump to that particular section of the document?

2) Also, is there a way to make sections of the document hidden until the user clicks a specific word or graphic in the document?

I'd like to specify a particular instruction and include a "Show example" link that would make a detailed example appear for those who needed the extra help.

Thanks everyone!

Answer:Word 2007 - Links within a document? Hide/Show sections of a document?

If you created table of contents through References - Table of Contents, you can hold Ctrl and click on the item in that table, word will take you there. This feature is standard.

Also, to navigate inside document you can use bookmark option.
Insert bookmarks. Word 2010 Bookmarks
Then insert Hyperlink - in the window select second tab "Place in This Document" and choose your bookmark.

As for hiding parts of document, I do not think that is possible.
You can create that in HTML document with javascript, but not in Word document.

Hi all.

The other day whilst in the throws of fixing another unrelated problem I came across a strange and annoying Word Document problem.

When I bought this word document up it present a very unusual icon. It was grayed out and part of the title contained a ~$ then the name of the document.

When I tried to open it, the word document only opened up to the gray page just before it should turn white displaying the text, and there it froze.

Nothing worked after that! The freeze was so bad that the only way to close the window was to turn the computer off at the tower.

After rebooting I tried it again 2 more times with the same problem freeze occurring in the Word document.

Today I again found another document that caused the same problem, this time the icon for that document was normal but right beside this icon was another malformed grayed out ~$(name) icon.

When I tried to open either of the 2 icons I got the same freezing up problem, just as before.

I tried a previously suggested step in that I opened "Word" and from there navigated to where the bad files were located.

In turn I only hi-lighted each, and at the bottom of that window clicked on the arrow for the drop down box.

I was advised that one of the presented options was to repair the file. No such option was present.

So there you have it. Any advice on this problem please?

I ascertained that all the aforementioned "defective " Word documents originated in the same folder. After performing several search functions with the criteria as ~$.doc no other such files were found on my computer, other that the already mentioned.

All tests suggested would not repair the said documents.

I have now deleted the offenders and I will monitor the situation. If I run into problems again I will re-post.

Thanks anyway.
Regards

This might be kind of tricky.

We're trying to streamline our RFQ-to-Quote process, which currently utilizes a combination of digital forms and hand-written forms passed among several departments. My boss asked me to modify the RFQ form to save him some typing (because he has to retype all the information in the final Quote), and I--not understanding the complexity of the process--very stupidly told him that it could be done fairly simply using form fields and bookmarks. He's been kind enough to grant me a lot of leniency because for him anything would be better than the current situation, so as long as I can improve on what we use now, he'll be happy.

I thought about creating form templates for each of the departments, then as the original RFQ circulated from one department to the next subsequent forms would be appended to it to create a rolling document. I'm not too happy with the that idea; there's all sorts of room for user error. I thought about creating a single document template containing every department's form, but a) I don't want any single department to be able to modify information gathered during another department's process, and b) certain departments must generate a variable number of copies of their form.

I told my boss the best way to accomplish a secure and low-maintenance RFQ-to-Quote would be to create a stand-alone Quote Generator application, but we both agree the effort is not condusive to the timeframe by whic... Read more

Hi....
I'm using word 2010.
I have a Mailmerge document (actually a company letter with header and footer, used by a package called "Cash4Windows" [C4W]). This document usually has the recipients name and address etc. inserted by C4W.
The document is a template - "xxx.dotx".
What I want to do is strip out the Mailmerge fields and save the document as a normal Word 2010 document, 'cos the User wants to have a blank standard company document available.
I've spent a long time fiddling with the Header and Footer to get just what the User wanted, and I know i could just cut-n-paste the Header and Footer into a new document, then save it as "xxx.docx", but when I looked on various help sites the normal method in Word 2010 seems to be
on the ribbon tab
Select Mailings
Select "Start Mail Merge"
Select "Normal Word Document"
then save the Word document.
I've tried this and it has absolutely no effect, as when I close and reopen Word and select the previously saved document, I still get the "Opening the document will run the following SQL command" splash screen!
I've tried saving the "normalised" document with various different extensions, but nothing seems to get rid of the SQL.
I've also tried opening the VBA editor (Alt+F11) to see if I can find the SQL, thinking that if I can delete the SQL it might cause Word to avoid the prompt, but I can't even find the SQL!!!

Answer:When typing a word document my laptop keeps sending the document

Hello

I don?t know what you mean with laptop keeps sending the document but if you have this issue with office word or some other office application, try to check some forum where you can find discussion about similar theme.

I can not give you any precise answer but it is maybe because of office specific settings or you press accidentally some key on the keyboard and on this way interrupt symbols entering.

Hello,
I used mail merger to create 25 letters to different locations and different people. The source used for the names and address's were from an excel file. I used "Edit Individual Documents" in order to get all the letters in one document. Now the problem is i need a backup of each letter on my computer and i have no clue if its even possible to save each page in the master document as a unique document. If not, is there a way of saving each unique document of a mail merger?
Thanks in advance.

I was working on a Word document that someone sent me by email in form of rar and saved the document. I now can't find the revised file and I have lost about 8 hours of work. Any ideas on where I can find this file? I looked in the email that was originally sent, but it is still the old file. I have also done searching on my computer with no luck. Help, I'm desperate!!! I have Word 2007. Please give me reply as soon as possible.
 

Answer:Cannot find the saved revised document in Word document

If you were only hitting "Save" and not "Save As" the document is likely, unfortunately, gone. You can try opening Word by itself and going through recent documents to see if it shows up. If you opened it directly from the email and the email was in Outlook, you might be able to find it in the Outlook Secure Temp Folder. To get to this folder, the easiest way is to send yourself a PDF file, open the PDF from the email then go to File | Properties and on the General tab (this is from memory, so I might be off a little bit) you'll find a location that you can click on. In this folder, you have a slight chance of finding the modified file. The only other option you have, that I can think of, would be digging through your temp folders hoping to find a .tmp or .doc file in there that has the content, but I give that about a .01% chance of happening. Good Luck!

Hi,

I work at a small non-profit and we have updated two computers with new computers running Windows 7. We use MS Word 2003. I have checked all threads on forum related to this issue, but nothing seems to correct our problem. I would be grateful for any help.

Description of issue: With a Word document open, one should be able to click "File" > "Send To" > Mail Recipient As Attachment", or any of the other mail options, and have the email composition window of Thunderbird pop up. What happens is that Word is attempting to send the attachment via Windows Live Mail. The computer basically freezes. If you try and abort or get out of Word, and error pops up stating you can't close Word until the email has been sent. Finally, you have to force a shut down of the computer.

Internet Explorer shows Thunderbird as default email client. I have check all of the other obvious places for setting the default email client, but I can't seem to find a conflict anywhere on the computer showing Windows Live Email as default client.

As a side note, this employee was using Outlook Express as their email client prior to the computer upgrade and all setting were imported into Windows Live Mail, which was initially used. The employee did not like Windows Live Mail, so I installed Thunderbird. It is used as the default email client and the only issue has been with Word. Additionally, I know that the document could be sent from Windows Explorer by right-cli... Read more

On my previous computer with Windows 2000, I was able to make incremental backups of a Microsoft Word document while it was being created by me. The advantage of this was that if an "accident" happened and the document was lost or corrupted before it was completed or saved to a folder, the partially completed document could be retrieved from a special folder somewhere in C-drive. I was able to specify how often a new backup was created (ex.: every 3 minutes, ex.; every 10 minutes, etc.). It is possible that this special folder also contained backups of all previously saved Word documents, which were also being re-backed up every few minutes. -- I cannot find any reference to this on my new computer (Windows XP and Microsoft Word 2002) in the Windows search engine, or in the Word user interface "Help". I cannot remember how I found this feature on my previous (W~2000) computer. -- Thanks

URGENT!! (Isn't it always?) I need to convert a multiple tab excel document to a word document. I read that I can save as a pdf, then convert to word but I have only Adobe Reader. If this can be done, is there a way to conserve the original format and the links in the excel doc?I would prefer leaving in excel but the customer needs a word document. Also, just in case I can convince to leave in excel -- is there a way to print the excel file as one document without printing each tab separately? If so, how do I ensure the formatting looks good to print as a regular 8.5 x 11 document?Thanks for any help.

Hey guys,
Windows 7 version of notepad comes with some annoying features when codeing.
Is there anyway I can revert back to the XP version of notepad?
Thanks
 

Answer:Solved: Revert from Windows 7 notepad to Windows XP notepad

If you are running Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate you can install XP Mode. This would allow you to launch the XP version of Notepad as a Virtual App. Otherwise you could just try copying over the executable of Notepad from an install of XP to your Windows 7 computer.

Why don't you actually use a text editor that has syntax highlighting for your coding. I have been using Notepad++ for many years now and have not turned back.

I am a teacher in Tennessee and I need to find a software that will enable me to edit and change a scanned document. I have some old tests and worksheets that I inherited from the teacher that had my room before me. I would like to make some minor changes to the documents without having to retype the entire set of documents. (Things like change the date and the teacher name on the heading, etc...)

Is there a software out there that will allow me to scan a document in and then alter it? These are not copyrighted materials, so that is not an issue.

Preferably, I would like a freeware or shareware or trial version of something to make sure I can navigate it before I shell out a chunk of cash to purchase something.

As a teacher, it is important to me that my materials look professionally done, so I would prefer to edit them on a computer rather than use white out and pen.

thank you so much
