MS office pro plus-outlook...mailbox full,need to "save"attachments

Question: MS office pro plus-outlook...mailbox full,need to "save"attachments

My issue is with microsoft office pro plus.

This software is currently working on a windows 7 machine so not strictly for this forum.

The software interacts with a mail server belonging to my employer.

The issue is that i have dozens of emails which have attachments . Each attachment is a multi page pdf document.

I need to find a way of saving off all those attachments perhaps to an external drive so that they dont go missing/get lost hence why i cant just delete them.

Can anyone suggest a way forward please?

I have removed the Windows 10 "Libraries" from the navigation pane in Windows Explorer and other Microsoft programs (eg. Notepad), but despite an exhaustive internet search I have been unable to discover how to remove Libraries from navigation panes in the "Open" and "Save as" dialogs in Office 2010 programs. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

A weird thing has happened with my Microsoft Outlook. On the bottom of the screen it is constantly showing Syncronizing Mailbox (to the left of Connected). This has never done this before. I have it installed on another computer and it doesn't do it on that one. I am running Windows 8 btw. How can I stop this? it is a POP account

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

Answer:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

Recently the "Save Attachments" in Vista Home Premium Windows Mail has appeared as "greyed out". The full emails can be saved by using "Save As" or "Save as Stationery" but I can't just save the attachments through the "Save Attachments" facility. It doesn't matter what the form of attachment is, .WMV, PDF, DOC, JPG etc. My various virus or malware programs don't show any intrusion. Any solution to this problem, please?

Windows 7 Home Premium

I would provide a screenshot (or three) however that is at the crux of my problem - I should perhaps say my current problem...now, with "7" (I am beginning to tire RAPIDLY of 7, much more quickly than I did with either XP, or Vista).

PROBLEM: When I attempt to "Save As" a document (Notepad, for instance), or even a Paint image, I get a window/page/screen/whatever, that has no "Buttons" ... no button to "Save", no button to "Cancel". Simply NO BUTTONS???

I had this problem the other night, and we "faked" or cheated our way through it, by using the Enter (Return?) Key to advance the cursor (cursor??) to where we wanted to be (well, we "hoped" we were "there", anyway, since we could not "see" what button or drop-down dialog box was selected or highlighted).

It's almost as if I had a "Resolution" problem, whereby the resolution is set too low (say, 800 x 600), things are too big to be seen/won't FIT on the page. However, my resolution is set to the "Recommended" 1366 x 768.

Please help...this Netbook would be a WHOLE LOT easier to throw against a wall than my desktops ever were . . .

Thanks in advance,
glenn . . .
PS, Hoping I was/am clear here...under the drop-down boxes of "File Name" and "Save as Type", there is nothing to select - not "Save" or "OK" or "Cancel" ... NOTHING????... Read more

Answer:No "Buttons" to "Save" or "Cancel" in Dialog Boxes WIN7

Hi,

Type dpi into the Search box and choose "Make text smaller or larger" at the top of the search result list. In the window that opens see what it is set to. You want it at 100% rather than 125% or 150%. So if higher than 100% change it back to 100%. Hit Apply. You will need to reboot. See if that helps.

I have a Windows issue (happening on Win XP, Vista and 7), that when I try saving a document, normally the Save dialogue box appears and "Save as type: " would normally show the file extension. Instead, now it's only listing "All Files (*.*)" and adding the file extenison to the "File name: " box just above.
I have also checked / unchecked the "Hide extensions for known file types" in the "Folder Options", both settings not changing anything to the Save box.
Had anyone come across this issue, and how can I once again have the File extentions in the 'drop down' list instead of just "All Files"?
Thank you for any help.
John

Answer:Microsoft Office 2003 "Save as" dialogue box issue

Hello John, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The "Save as" available file extension options will vary per program. By default, there should be a drop down menu available where the "All Files (*.*)" is to select from what is available for it though. Since there isn't, you might consider a repair install.



Hope this helps,
Shawn

HI

Blow Error is happening when using Drive File Stream drive and folders.

Error:
MS Excel 2016
Your changes could not be saved to "g:\my drive...." because of a sharing violation. Try saving to a different file.

Similar problems happening in Word as well.

All other programs are saving properly.

Excel and Word save new files properly but when working on an existing file and I press save then the file is not saved and the error pops up and I have to save under a new file. Excel creates a temporary file with random #'s e.g.: 7A4764

I looked online and Microsoft said that I need modify/delete privileges to be able to save to "network drives" I've given full admin privileges to all user accounts and still the same issue.

Everything was working fine until 3 days ago when Windows had a security

I've uninstalled the Windows Updates. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling MS Office and no luck. I've uninstalled Drive File Stream and installed a new version and still no luck. I tried creating a new user account on the same computer and tried running DFS on there and tried saving there and no luck.

I'm running Windows 10 64 bit and MS Office 2016.

I'm currently using Back up & Sync and Office is saving using Google Drive folder.

Please advise on a fix.

I'm using Outlook 2010 for work emails. The program will run fine for an hour or so opening email attachments in a matter of a second or two, then all of a sudden it starts to take 15 to 20 seconds to open an "unread" attachment. An attachment that has already been opened will open quickly anytime.

I've tried disabling add ons. I've tried using CCCleaner to clean out the computer as well as it's registry scanner. I've tried deleting all of my other emails, saved, sent or deleted, so there are only a few in Outlook and nothing has helped. The only way that it will function properly again for a short period of time is if I shut down my computer completely and restart. Then, I'm in that same perpetual loop of working great for a little while, then it starts opening email attachments slow again.

Any ideas?
 

Answer:"Unread" email attachments open slow-Outlook 2010

I appreciate your response very much. I did try that and it didn't seem to help.

I'm going to throw a wrench in this and probably cause a lot more confusion, but I've recently found something that appears to have something to do with the problem. This computer is hardwired (ethernet) into a wireless router. About once or twice in a 10 hour period during the day, the router somehow disconnects the internet. I have to turn the router off for 15 seconds and it comes back up along with the internet everytime. For some reason, I've noticed that just before (and I'm talking 15 to 30 mins. before) the router disconnects the internet, the email attachments begin to open slow. As soon as I reset the router, the email attachments open normally.

Go figure? I honestly can't see how one has anything to do with the other, but I'm about 99 & 9/10's sure that the problem goes hand in hand with the router disconnecting. I've just recently (in the last few days) noticed this and have been monitoring and experimenting with it. So far, it happens everytime.

Whenever I try to save any document in any Office 2013 program, nothing happens. When I press File>Save as F12, or ctrl+s, (on a new document) nothing happens. Any normal way to save a file, even saving customizations, does nothing. I just get the "working" mouse for a half a second. Nothing opens, but I can still work in the document (so I know it didn't just come up in the background). Has anyone else had this problem? Is there any way to fix it?

Relevant: I have Office 2003 installed. I've heard that causes problems. I'd be willing to uninstall them both and reinstall in the recommended order, but I'd lose my customizations. I can't save my customizations, because that requires the save as dialog.

Answer:Office 2013 won't open "save as" dialog.

Does this problem occur with both version of Office or only with Office 2013. Also are you having any problems with any other programs on your computer.

You could try repairing Office 2013. To do that open Control Panel, select Programs & Features, scroll down to Microsoft Office 2013, right click on it & select Change & this will show a couple of Repair options for you to try.

Over the past year I have experienced erratic problems when using "save as" in Word, Excel and Powerpoint. What happens is that the Office application gets "locked" when trying to "save as". I need to restart the program and after X number of "retries" I can eventually save the file with a new file name. I see no systematics in the origin of files (the producer/sender) or the underlying Office program version although I seem to handle the majority of my own files. In some cases even the internal Explorer gets locked and I need to restart my computer. I have used the Windows repair function in the Control panel - but it does not help. I can live with the problem - but it is terribly annoying!
Would appreciate help from the forum on how to fix it.

We are suddenly experiencing weird delays when we use the "receive" function in Outlook to download mail from our e-mail service provider. The mail leaves the service provider server immediately, but does not show up in the Outlook inbox for hours or even a day or two. It is just some of the mail; meanwhile, other mail comes through like normal. And the mail that is not coming through is from people who are on our approved senders list and with whom we've been exchanging mail regularly in the past.

Similarly, there is a shorter delay when using the "save-as" feature in Word. Before, the file showed up immediately in the directory it was being saved in. Now, there is a lag of a few minutes.

We are using Office 2007, and do not have an Exchange server. The mail comes directly into the desktop computer from the e-mail service provider. We tried running Office Diagnostics, but all it did was suggest we download any Office updates and apply them, which we did. It had no effect on the problems.

We have a hardware firewall (Linksys) and have the Windows software firewall disabled. Everything was working fine until a couple of weeks ago. And the percentage of messages that are being delayed is escalating.

Any idea what is causing this, and how to fix it?

Thanks!

XP Home (installed SP2 recently, which MIGHT have something to do with this?).

Just saved two word docs and a bmp file, all separately. All three times I saw that a new location has been added to the Save As drop-down menu. It didn't open to My Documents folder but was in the general folder list of the whole computer. The location was called "FTP File Locations." It's never appeared on the Save As menu before. This made me think of the file/print sharing control, which is now located in the Windows Firewall, but I don't use that Firewall, I turned it off to use Norton. What was FTP Locations? And is there any way to disable file/print sharing without using the Windows Firewall? (These may be the same thing, I don't know.) Also, in Network Connections, I thought I'd find file/print sharing control there, but now XP wants me to run a whole Network Wizard thing..I'm afraid I'll somehow set up a network instead! or enable all kinds of things..I don't want to create a disaster here.

(My son installed an FTP program months ago for work he was doing, but the program was removed. I just searched for it, it's definitely gone.)

This is a stand-alone, non-networked home computer.

P.S. I saved another Word doc and now it's back to opening to My Documents folder as usual..now I can't find the FTP Locations anywhere.

Hi, as with many I have upgraded to Windows 10 today and it is going well except for the fact I am unable to save any files or create new ones in the Documents and Pictures folders or any sub-folders within these folders, and I have no idea why it is doing this. For instance, I tried to save an image created in paint and attempted to save it in the Pictures folder, it gave me the error message seen in this picture below:

Note, I am the only user on the system, and also the admin account so I do not know why it says this. Clicking Yes on the box does nothing and the same thing still occurs afterward. In addition, bringing up the right click menu and going to new only allows me to create a new folder, and the windows admin shield icon appears next to it. Deleting files also prompts me to ask for admin permission but in that case I can simply click the continue button and it goes through. Any advice?

Open the folders properties and got to the security tab and change permissions for your account, if you can't change permissions take ownership of the folder, if you can't take ownership of the folder activate the super administrator account and change permissions and/or ownership.

There are lots of guides on how to do all of that if you need more detailed steps.

I just got a new Hewlett Packard computer with Windows XP. The CD drive is a combo CD reader, writer and DVD. The main reason I need it is to backup my many documents, database programs (RootsMagic family history, Quicken, etc.), photographs and drawings. The pre-installed burning program on the computer is Adaptec's (I think) Sonic RecordNow!, which is useless for my needs because of the way it works. The HP tech suggested I download DLA to enable me to use "drag & drop" through Windows Explorer, but I haven't had much luck with that, either. What I need is to be able to use a CD-RW as a giant floppy - to add, delete, copy, edit and move files, just as I do on my regular floppies, using "drag & drop" through Windows Explorer, or "save as...". What software do I need for this? Please use "baby-talk" with me, because I don't understand any of the initials, terms and technical language I see all over these forums. Thanks, Dellasha
 

Answer:Data backup and storage to CD-RW's using "Drag & Drop" or "Save as..."

The most versatile program for that is "Nero"
The latest version Nero6 Reloaded is a bit bloated, maybe the NeroMIX will do better for you. Read the specs here: www.nero.com

The part that interests you specifically is InCD.

When attempting to save a document or browse to open a file from within an ap, the dialogue box freezes for 10 secs or so when trying to browse to preferred save location. The ap shows as not responding. I don't have any mapped network drives and can't seem to find any other solution. This seems to be fairly common, as I've seen this problem on a couple other forums, but never found an answer that actually works. Any Ideas?
System is:
ASUS Crosshair AM2 board, X2 4000+, 2 GB DDR2-800 (OCZ), 7950GT, 5 SATA HDDs and a couple of DVD-RW drives (1 SATA, 2 PATA). Vista x64 (clean install)

Hello everyone
Recently, I'm playing Anno 1404 (also called Dawn of Discovery) in my Vista Home Basic 32bit finely until I saw the problem with the "save/load" problem. First, it saves "systematically" but, the save is corrupted to a 5kb file. Second, the game can't load the 'properlly saved' save file, and also the corrupted one also.

Few of the players had the similar problem, and someone said that making another user account works, and I tried and really worked for me. Yes, I can play this way, but all of my files and infos are saved in the Administrator account, and I don't want to switch users just to play that game

Recently I found a useful MS program, which is runas, and found how to run as another account. It asks for the account pw, and everythis was fine, but it doesn't run my game
It just closes the cmd and nothing happens. What could be this problem?
I hope Ubi gives out this fixing patch fast

Ok I'm asking this on behalf of my girlfriend since I have no clue what could be causing this. Its really more of an annoyance than a problem.

When ever she wants to open something when using an application and the "Open" dialog box comes up, all her files are listed in reverse alphabetical order no matter how many times she sets it to "Arrange Icons By > Name" in the dialog box. It also happens when the "Save As" dialog box comes up with all the files displayed in reverse alpabetical order. When she is viewing the contents of a folder though, everything shows normally, this only happens when those 2 dialog boxes are displayed. Any one know what could cause this? Thanks.

In any application under Win XP, when I use a Save As or Open dialog box, and click the down arrow next to the location box to search for the folder I want, the application never responds. Usually, I have to click the arrow a couple of times and then it sort of wakes up and responds, or the application crashes (the title bar of the dialog box will say "Not Responding".

Often, in the case of the Save As dialog, it won't say Save As in the upper left corner, only an "S" will appear there.

Seems like a memory issue or else something corrupt in the system. Before I shell out $35 to MS to have them fix something that shouldn't be broken, can anyone help???

I would like to be able to suppress the Out of Office message for particular email addresses (like I could on Lotus Notes!), but cannot see a way to do this.

The need is especially useful for newsletters and other non-manned addresses, because the ooo message triggers an auto response from them which triggers another ooo from me.... well you get the picture.

I also have my home emails copied to my work Outlook account, and when I have the ooo message set, it triggers an ooo message to the sender - I may be out of the office, but not necessarily away from home!

I can disable the pop-up error box by unchecking "Show add-in user interface errors" under "In all Microsoft Office Programs:" in Tools/Options/"Other" Tab/"Advanced Options..." button.

Answer:Office 2007 Outlook "Send to Bluetooth" Error

This issue is resolve for now. The problem is a Bluetooth driver that causes issues with MS Office as well. See the link below for more details:

Word 2007 Copy and Paste Issue

In addition to disabling the "Show Add-In user interface errors" option as described in post 1, you can disable the "Send to Bluetooth" feature under Tools/Trust Center/Add-Ins/Manage: COM Add-ins (drop down menu and click "Go")/uncheck "Send to Bluetooth."

With Win 7, you need to right click the application exe file, select "Properties"/Compatibility and check the box to run the program as an administrator to be able to uncheck the "Send to Bluetooth" options in all the Office applications.

Welcome to MGs!

I doubt your problems with Outlook are related to malware. You do not show any major issues but you should delete the below:

C:\Documents and Settings\Mark Carey\My Documents\XP Wallpapers\KISS\600.exe

Also empty your Junk email folder where Panda detected the following:

hi !

some office 2010 problems: when i try to view "Outlook Today" i get an error message:
"cannot display the folder. out of memory or system resources".

right-clicking on outlook today → data-file properties → home page,
the problem seems to bee that it changes from the default outlook.htm to outlook3.ht

res://E:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\1033\OUTLWVW.DLL/outlook3.ht

clicking on "Restore defaults" fixes it.

but the next time i start Outlook, or sometimes even if i just take a look at some inbox-folders and then go back to outlook today,
then it?s the same problem all over again.

i have used 2010 for a while, and never seen those problems before,
it all started a few days ago after i changed some other settings, only problem is that i can?t remember exactly what i did.

one weird thing is that the problems only seems to be with my user-account, if i use my admin-account everything works ok.

i have uninstalled 2010, used ccleaner to fix the registry, manually removed all office-related files from the users-folders,
then reinstalled 2010.

the problems are still there.

About one month ago, a new problem surfaced:

Most times when I try to "Save As" a document and the application calls Windows Explorer for me to Browse where to save the file, it hangs for upwards of 60 seconds. The Browse window appears, but then I get a "spinning circular cursor" for 45-60 seconds until I can do anything. This occurs in all applications from MSExcel through Internet Explorer.

The system never completely crashes, but there is always this 60 second lag now.

The lag also occurs when I try to open a document...and to a less extent, but sometimes, when I simply open Windows Explorer (Windows Explorer is inconsistent as to whether it will give me a lag...sometimes it does work fine).

I have previously tried posting in the malware forum. I had picked something up they found...and cleaned it out, but that seems to have been completely unrelated to this as it was a virus redirecting my Google searches.

Can anyone help?

Whenever I perform a "Save As..." or a "Save File" (e.g. with an email attachment), the pop-up save menu always defaults to NOT displaying the navigation pane(s) showing the existing folders/files in the target folder - see thumbnail below left.

To view the folder tree and folder/file list (see thumbnail below right), you have to click on the "Browse Folders" button at the bottom left.

Is there a registry hack or other setting that will reverse this setting for me?

P.S. This problem appears to occur when the application uses the standard Win7 explorer for the save - when using Photoshop, for example, it happily displays the folders and images etc.

Which version of Internet Explorer do you have? Is it 8, 9, or 10? I only have 8 and I didn't see any way of changing this in there and mine does not do what yours does, so I'm thinking that you have either 9 or 10. If you do, then I will install the version you have and take a look.

You see, this kind of thing can be changed in other browsers like Firefox, and it has been possible for as long as I can remember (several years).

Do you get the Window logon box when you bootup? If so, do you just cancel it? That will ususlly eleminate password control.

Until today my computer, running Windows XP Home Edition, had two user accounts; one for my mother (titled "Nancy Loury") and one for me (titled "Kev"). However I found myself simply using my mothers more often and saw having two accounts when both of us really only use one as redundant. So I decided to delete the Kev user account. The account had all of my very important files in it under My Documents. When I went to delete the account, it of course asked me if I wanted to save the contents of the My Documents folder for the Kev account under a folder labeled "Kev" on the Nancy Loury user's desktop. I of course did want to save them, so I clicked "Save Files", the account was deleted, and on the desktop is the file labeled "Kev" which, according to the system, should hold all the contents of the My Documents from the Kev account. I clicked on the folder and to my horror I found that it was completely empty; the system had not saved a single one of the files in My Documents like I had asked it too and like it said it would do. Nothing is there.

I've no idea why this happened, all I know is I'm extremely upset about this. What do I do to recover the files from the now deleted My Documents?

Outlook 2003:I'm a massive fan of outlooks Search folders, I receive in excess of 400 emails per day, of which approximately 250 need my attention, even if to reply back and give someone an answer.

A problem I find is that I am so busy with my emails, I often need to clean out my inbox. I do this by setting up basic search folders such as "all emails from my team which are in my inbox only" or "any email sent to me which was part of a distribution list in my inbox only" etc...

This is great for filtering my mail and I would like to create a rule as such:

"All mail within my inbox which has been either replied to forwarded by myself".

I can't seem to find any options and I'm hoping an Outlook guru can help

If you don't know the answer, can you try googling it for me to see if you can find anything, loads of heads are better one...

Thanks in advance

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

Hi,

How do I prevent staff from saving files to desktop?

I've seen numerous stuff on this online and most tell you to empty your temp internet files (done...folder's empty) and make sure the "Do not save encrypted pages to disk" option is unchecked in the "Advanced" section.

Both are done. My Temp Internet Files cache is set to 250MB, so I know it's neither full nor too small.

All was working fine until recently and I can't really think of much that could have caused the problem. Would any of the protections in SpyBot S&D cause this? Suggestions?

I found that trying to reinstall IE is like pulling teeth.

No problems with any other graphics programs or Netscape, so the issue is limited to IE.
 

Answer:"Save As" in IE only allows me to save as a BMP, "untitled" file.

Problem:
Frequently when using Word2003 and try to save files w/ "save" or "save as" causes XP to reboot immediately. Does not happen every time but can happen several times a day and sometimes only after several days of operation. When reboots get message that system has recovered from a serious fault. Report to MS. MS Online Crash Analysis reports that a device driver has caused the problem but cannot determine the precise cause. So far have reloaded the video drivers with the latest update.

System info:
Dell Dimension 933r. 512 MB RAM. 20 GB HD. >5 GB avail. Initially had WinME but HD has since been reformated and reloaded w/ WinXP home from scratch. Office 2003 recently installed. Device Manager reports no problems w/ hardware. No blue screens, no error messages, etc. Running Norton Systemworks 2004. No new hardware except ram but when running ME additional ram did not cause any problems.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
jhc
 

Answer:Word2003 "save" or "save as" causes reboot in XP

Hi, and welcome to tsg

does it do it when its saving to the disk just on the file command - you may have a disk or memory error

in the event viewer do you see anything which mayhelp
control panel> admin tools>event viewer

otherwise it may be worth unclicking the reboot on error

control panel > system>advanced >startuo and recover > box for reboot - and then repost the full error message
but first post the event logs info

Hello,

I'm hoping someone can help me. I'm using Outlook 2003. I'm designing a new Contacts screen, which better suits the needs of my business.

I have been able to figure out how to everything except for this:

How to I design the "date" and "dollar amount" field values to default to blank/empty instead of defaulting to the word "None" in the case of the "date" field and "$0.00" in the case of the "dollar amount" field?

Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated!

It's a mole hill of a problem, but it is a bit annoying to have to click on my principal drive ("C") every time I'm doing a "save". I have enclosed an excerpt of a screen shot of my "save as" window to display how the default drive being automatically selected is the "D" drive rather than the "C" drive that I use primarily. To be honest, I don't know whether this can be corrected by a software change, or whether it's the way the two hard drives are connected in my computer.

I'd appreciate it if anyone has a suggestion to offer if there is a way to make my "C" drive the default selection when I attempt to do a save function. Thanks

Dear Experts,I was using the PC and suddenly, my monitor get turned off, but the light on power button changed the color from green to orange with dark on the monitor and there was "POWER SAVE"...and something said "NO SIGNAL..". Now, I cannot use my PC because I tried restarted the PC but still turned off...How to fix this problem? Can anyone help me for this..I am very appreciate for your helps..  Thanks,Natasha

Answer:My monitor suddenly turn off with "NO SIGNAL"..."POWER SAVE..Pls Help

Hello Natasha.It's like foning your favorite car mechanic and telling him/her that your car won't start and asking what you can do...   His first question will be "Whats the make and model?"So the first question about your monitor is "What's the make and model?"This fault is 'generally' caused by damage to the connection cable, or incorrect plugging but may be caused by heat stress or a video card problem.  We could accept some details of your pc as well, the more info you supply the better chance of us being able to come up with a reasonably sane diagnosis..Thanks.

I'm running Word 2013. Up till a week or so it worked fine, but now it freezes completely whenever I try to save or save as a document, new or modified, in my C:\Users\Tom\Documents folder, even though it does seem to save or save as correctly if I choose subfolders in ...documents or other separate folders.

I have tried running Word in safe mode. No help.

I have done a complete repair using control panel/programs...no help. It seemed to have uninstalled MS Office 2013 completely and reinstalled it completely, and nothing improved. One minor problem I have with this is that I've lost my product key from the original version, and I can't retrieve it from Dell, where I bought the machine, so I can't activate the reinstalled MS Office 2013! It'll run till next Tuesday, then it'll be dead. My bad, but that's not what's causing me this grief.

I have checked the hard drive with AVG PCTuneup disk doctor and found no errors. I've defragged with that routine also; no help.

I've tried running Word with and without first launching any browser. The problem occurs whether or not I've launched a browser.

To my untrained eye, it seems as if whenever I try to point Word to my normal ...documents folder, to retrieve a doc stored there so I can work on it, or save a new doc there that I've just created, or "save as" a doc I've retrieved from a different folder, Word can't find that spot on my hard drive.

I am running Windows XP SP3, fully updated, on an Acer lap top PC.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".


Here are two pictures showing the problem with the .mp3's. The first is of Explorer showing the Duration as "Hours:Minutes":




The second picture is of the properties window of the first .mp3 in the list above:




I copied some .mp3 files to another (old) PC on my home network, and it displayed the duration field correctly:




Also, the properties window correctly shows the duration also:





I'm not the only person to have this problem. I received a private message from a member of another forum where I posted about this problem several weeks ago. That person also has the same problem with the duration field.

The tech guys on that forum were unable to find the source... Read more

How can I make it such that in Search Results, when I open a folder in a new window (by right-clicking a file), I will be directed to a window with the "full path" displayed in the address bar, instead of Search Results\"Path" or Search Results>"Path"?
Edit: "Right-click -> open file location" will open the file location and have the full address displayed. But that doesn't solve the problem if I have more than one result that I need to go to and check.

Answer:Open a new window with "full path" instead of Search Results\"Path"

See if this works, from the control panel, click on Folder options > View tab > check the box that says "Display the full path in the title bar" (classic theme only)

Hope I'm in the right forum, apologies for not. This isn't software or hardware..not sure what though.

Sony laptop, Windows Vista, Cannon Printer

Use the same site (Craigs List) every single day, several times a day. After posting ads, the first page is printed off for a hard copy. Same, same same every day.
Tried to print today and a "Save File As" box comes up and says An unknown error has occurred and "no items match your search and something about an *xps document?? No matter what we've tried, shutting down computer and printer, etc., does the same thing. Have tried to print from other areas as well and same thing. Will not print, just brings up the box. What has gotten changed?? And how did it get changed and how do I fix this PLEASE!!

 

Answer:"Print" goes to straight to "Save As".....

I would say that your default printer has changed somehow. It should be an easy fix.
What operating system are you using?

If your using Vista:
Start > Control Panel > Under Hardware and Sound, select Printer > Right Click on the printer you want to use and press "Set as Default Printer".

If your using XP:
Start > Control Panel > Printers and Faxes > Right Click on the Printer > Set as Default Printer.

That should work for you, If you have any problems or that didn't solve the problem, or I haven't covered the right Operating System, just ask.

This is actually two questions....

Running Windows 7 Professional x64.

First, and similar to this thread, "How to default to 'Browse Folders' on 'Save as..'", I am getting this full-window "Save As" dialog everywhere instead of just the folders display. I can click "Browse" to get to the Explorer navigation window, but I'd rather just go straight there...

I have no need for this extra step, and I don't think I've ever actually used this "Save As" dialog...

Interestingly, MS Paint goes straight to the dialog I want, but Foxit Reader, MS Word, and most other programs do not... (What I want to do is always open to the second screenshot when using Alt -> f -> a, or Ctrl + a. Right now, the majority of programs I am using will open to the first screenshot instead.)

Screenshots:

Second, when I have a file that has been saved, but not through that program, how do I get the Save As to open to the location of the file?

To clarify, in the example below, I had scanned a few documents, which my scanner software named "Untitled.pdf," "Untitled1.pdf," etc. Given that they have unique names, they are clearly saved on the HDD; however, I have no idea into which folder the scanner software saved them... (They aren't in the "Recent Places" folder, either...)

The screenshot below was done in Foxit Reader, where the scanner software automagically opened them for me.

IE 7 OS: XP

I've updated IE, reset settings, uninstalled reinstalled IE, tried mozilla firefox, still have same problems...

In internet explorer if I were to save a file as or an image as using the right click method, IE with completely shut down with no error reporting message. If I want to upload files or images to the internet and click on "browse", again IE closes. This happens as well when I want to extract files from an email and want to save the file as... and so on.

The only way for me to upload anything to the internet is through a bulk uploader if one is available??

When using mozilla, the error reports that there is an unknown error with the filepicker.

Any thoughts out there??

I have Win xp and two days ago I booted the computer to use Excel. I found that I now have about a 30 second delay anytime I try to open a file by clicking on the "look in" box, when I try to save by accessing the "save in" box or even typing in a web address in the open box in a web browser. This occurs in all programs (Word, Excell, IE etc.). I have been experiencing more than normal pop ups. Things were working pretty well three evenings ago; but, the next morning I ran into this problem. The computer was turned off over night. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Hello,

When I attempt to download and play (on Windows media Player) PPS/WMV files I am only given the option of "Save" or "Cancel". When I click "Save" the file is saved on my desktop and at the completion of the download Internet Explorer stops working.

How can I directly "Open" the PPS/WMV file, instead of saving it first? And, will this change eliminate IE from crashing? Thanks.
