I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

How can I re-associate .mp4 files with video details displaying in the Details Pane? After installing the K-lite codecs pack, my mp4's all began displaying in the details pane as audio files (Album, Artist etc) and no longer displays the important video default details (size, frame height, bitrate etc). I assume it was because of incorrectly associating file types when installing the codecs (even though wmv's, avi's are still correct), so I uninstalled the codecs but the Details categories remain for typical audio files. I've exhausted The Google and I'm stumped... any help? (Win7, 32-bit with VLC as my default player) Thanks!

how can I get my search results to list the address as it exists, rather than with favoritism for the subfolder an item was found in,

e.g.,

I want
"c:\folder\sub folder\sub sub"

rather than being shown
"sub sub (c:\folder\sub folder)"

it makes things much easier to navigate.

Windows 7 now calls the useful style "Folder path". Right-click in the header row, choose "More", and choose "Folder path".

I would like to find one person who thinks the current "Folder" style used in Win7 is useful. It's totally stupid. Or to put it in a way a Win 7 programmer apparently likes: stupid (It's totally).

I can't believe no one provided an answer to your question in nine months. This problem was killing me, so after an hour of searches without finding the answer, and then finding the answer by myself, I thought I'd add this for others who find this through a google search.

I have found every change in Win7 to be a hindrance to my work.

Hi,I'm using Windows 7 Professional x64. When I use Windows Explorer to view image files (jpg, png, etc.), I would like to see each image's dimensions listed in the Details Pane (when it's set to view the images as Icons/Thumbnails, rather than Details). However, the only details that show up in the Details Pane are Name, Type, Date Created, Date Modified, and Size. This is the case even though:* I've checked 'Dimensions' in the 'Choose Details' options* The folder is already categorized/optimized for 'Pictures'* Other folders show the other details I want -- i.e., the Details Pane for my 'Videos' folder shows Length, Frame Width, Frame Height, and other details that I've chosenAny suggestions are appreciated.

I just did a reinstall of XP Pro and am having trouble with video files being "in use" when trying to move/delete them (only a several second lag, but it is annoying me). It has to do with a preview being generated in the details pane in the bottom left corner of Explorer. I eventually figured out how to turn off the preview option on my last install but have forgotten how I did it. Under folder options I have "do not cache thumbnails" unchecked. Is this the setting I need to change? Or is it somewhere else? It seems to me I need an option to not show a preview in the details pane.

Thanks for any suggestions.
 

Answer:How to Turn of Thumbnails in Details Pane?

I haven't done an XP install, but I have had problems like yours. Here is how I fix them without reinstalling, in case it may help? (The instructions may be different for XP.)

Thumbnails are used as icons when the folder is in Thumbnail view. This is usually not the problem, since they are usually cached after the first time. I turn them off by getting the Properties window for that folder. (I just go to the parent folder and right-click on the folder there, then choose Properties.) Then in one of the tabs, I find the Enable thumbnail view option and uncheck it. But, again, this is probably not the problem.

The preview thumbnail (actually, the whole details pane) can be turned off by unchecking View as Web Page in the View menu in one folder. Or, you can turn it off for all folders by going to View menu > Folder Options > General tab > choose Custom, then click the Settings button and in the View Web Content in Folders section, choose Only for folders where I select "as Web Page" [View menu]

If I want the details pane, but not the preview, I edit the HTML of the window. I don't know if you want to try this, it can be confusing, but here's what I do, just in case:
I right-click on the detail pane (or you can use the View menu), and click Customize this Folder... then choose create or edit HTML document. This allows me to customize that details pane. To remove only the worst case files from the preview, I see if I can find "var w... Read more

In order to customize which fields are displayed in the details pane for a given file type you can:

1. Run Regedit.
2. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\SystemFileAsso ciations\.mp3 (Or whatever file type you want to edit.)
3. Edit the PreviewDetails string.

My question is:
Is there a way to do something similar for folders? Currently, the only info displayed in the details pane when a folder is selected is Date modified, and Availability. I would like to add other details to this pane (Size, Date created etc...). Is this possible?

It was easy to add comment then i had a bit trouble to get the comment getting displayed in the details pane...after playing with the registry for a while i got that solved as well.
Now I ended up with a problem where the comment being displayed eds with just some 3 or 4 words with the remaining given in dots (...) and I get a full display of it when i hover the mouse over it, which obviously goes way in 5 seconds or so.

So what i need is to find a way to expand what ever that is shown in the details pane so that it shows the entire content in consecutive lines without being restricted to one line (without having to hover a mouse)

Hello.

I've been trying to re-organize my photo collection. Previously, I had been using Windows Live Photo Gallery to tag my photos, and admittedly it was convenient. Recently, though, the program has gone on the fritz to where thumbnails aren't loading so it's harder to differentiate photos simply by the file name in cases where I have a lot of photos of the same group or folder. While I've tried a lot of troubleshooting to get the thumbnails to load, and would gladly take advice on that issue, in the meantime I'm trying to accomplish the same thing using the details pane in explorer.

When I highlight a photo right now, most file types load the date stamp, tags, rating, author(s) and comments properties in the details pane. However, I'd like to edit the people properties so I can tag individuals in the photos. I have not seen a way to easily do that short of using other software (such as Photo Gallery).

Does anyone know if there's a way to do this through explorer or will it require a separate application?

Is there any way to permanently remove or disable all of the various "views" in the Windows 7 Navigation Pane *except* for Details? If a subdirectory contains audio files I *never* want to see "Album" or "Artist" or any of the rest of that garbage. If the subdirectory contains an image file I *never* want to see a thumbnail of images. If I need more information about a file I'll right click on it and select Properties, thankyewverymuch!

In short, when I click anywhere in the left or right panel in the Navigation Pane I never want to see *ANYTHING* except the file name, type, size, and date modified.

Check that your files haven't suddenly become "Read-only".

Also try running CHKDSK to check the drive.

After I've used one of my external HDDs at TAFE, my PC claims that it is "Read-only" and it takes several CHKDSK commands to fix the problem.
Of course after CHKDSK is finished, it says that there weren't any problems.

Hi, I just re-installed windows 7 on my desktop pc and have a question about the settings of the details pane in windows explorer (the one that appears and the bottom when you select a file). Previously when I selected video files (.mp4, .avi and .mkv) I would get the details at the bottom, the video frame width and height, size of file etc.. but since I reinstalled I don't get these details when I select video files. I know its only a small problem but I work with video files a lot and have gotten used to seeing the resolution of files without having to open them. Does anyone know how I can get the details pane to show these details again? At the moment it only displays the video size, name and state.

Greetings,

First of all, I'm a complete noob at customizing, so please bear with me.

I've been searching for a way to change the Windows Explorer navigation (folder) pane background colour, the panel that (by default) can be found on the left and shows things like Favourites, Libraries etc. The default colour is white, and lately it has started to hurt my eyes more and faster than it did before. That's why I would like to change it to grey.
I've 'already' managed to do this for the reading pane by editing the shellstyle.dll file (C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\Aero\Shell\NormalColor), but I cannot find any information on how to do this for the navigation pane. That is, I found some topics but most of the time the answers point towards downloading/buying a program that can do it, or needing to send some files to a helpful person who can change it him/herself, and by doing so probably avoid a lot of explaining, which of course I can understand. However, I would like to do this myself so that in the future I'll no longer have to rely on someone else to change that colour. Furthermore, I'm not interested in any other scheme than the standard Aero (yet...) so I would like to do this without downloading/buying any program (which I'll most likely never use again after I changed that one colour - but you never know, of course).

So, where can I find the code for the background colour? Can it be found in the shellstyle.dll file as well? Do I need to look somewhere else? It doesn... Read more

Thank you for your help

Answer:adjust file preview size on file explorer details pane

There seems to be a minimum size which is pre-defined, you cannot make it smaller. The preview and details pane size is set by the DetailsContainerSizer binary value in the Registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Modules\GlobalSettings\Sizer
I do not know of way to make the thumbnail larger in the details pane. It is larger in the preview pane.

The "Details" which are available are those you see when a list of files is in "Details" view (as opposed to "Icons" or "Tiles" views.In "Details" view, depending on which column categories you have enabled, you are shown such things as filesize, file-date, filetype etc. If you then right-click any column header, you can choose to hide or show more information columns.I can't see how any of that can leave you scratching your head as it's no different to previous versions of Windows in that respect.

6 Total PCs - Gaming on some, Basics on others + 1 HTPC

Few Switches - couple 10/100 and couple 10/100/1000

Couple Routers - WRT54G, Netgear N

What I would like to accomplish

I NEED to have the Game Server with the external IP address for it do act as I want.

Since I don't have net access at home I haven't had a chance to test things.

Can 2k3 have the net say... pass throught it? or atleast allow it to forward things efficiently? I don't want it to slow down the traffic for the other servers in times of higher traffic loads.

Would a switch after the server be enough for evertything or would a nix router -> switch be better to properly forward the ports to the other servers and handle firewall duties.

Can 2k3 basically handle all these above jobs with the effectiveness of say PFSense? I've heard PF does really well at QoS (would that even make a difference in this enviroment?)

Answer:What would be the best arrangement?

For a Windows server...(or any server for that matter...but ESPECIALLY for a Windows server) you want to protect it behind a NAT firewall. Since high performance and online gaming are of concern...a high performance router would be desired...PFSense would fit the bill.

You open/forward the ports necessary for your games and other services which you wish to make available to the public...example, port 27960 for quake engine based games.

Sticking a Windows Server directly on a public IP address without hardware firewall protection..heh, you'll be formatting and reinstalling it on a weekly basis due to it being hacked into.
Advantage of being behind a NAT firewall...can just run servers with a single NIC.

Is SLI only available to nVidia cards and is this likely to change? Can you use different makes/models of cards? Can a second card be purchased at a later date and converted to SLI (if others components configured at time) ? Can existing technology (eg monitors or even the current cpus ) cope?

Answer:AMD 64/PCI/SLI arrangement

You will need an SLI enable motherboard.I believe Asus have one out at the moment. Check it out on their website.As long as the motherboard supports the CPU then there shouldn't be any compatability problems.I am not sure if you can use cards from two different manufacturers, best to check on this.click hereAlso you can just run one Nvidia card initially then when that one begins to struggle you can by another card...hopefully cheaper because of depreciation and just pop that in to give ur PC a bit more zest.SLI is an Nvidia only technology and yes is only available on Nvidia cards that support the technology (6x00 series I think).ATI are working on a similar technology that apparently doesn't need the little bridging PCB that connects the two cards together. This will prob be available mid 2005.Any more Qs I'd be glad to try and answer them.

But when you placed you hand into it and try reaching the Enter, it is normal, This layout is like this,
Where the Enter is in the Third line when you reach it, Try looking for a keyboard where the enter goes from 3rd to 4th row and try reaching for it. Youll see that you'll touch the enter on the third line.

This is I believe due to compact keyboard size vs regular normal hands size.

Hi all,

Not sure if this is the type of question for these particular forums, as it's more of a general hardware query, but the community here has been very helpful in the past!

I've got a fairly old W7 Ultimate Q6600 PC with a 500w GX Lite PSU and recently ordered an cheap VTX 7870 graphics card. I've been thinking about doing it for some time, but thought now is the perfect time to add more cooling to my PC to mitigate the extra noise from the card.

I've attached some photos of my case - I've got a standard 120mm fan at the back of the case, and there is a vent which looks like it would fit a fan at the front which has screw holes 75mm and 85mm apart (but the vent itself is 90mm across, see photo 'front vent'). However since I got the PC about 6/7 years ago, the HDD bays have been attached to the bottom, which would obscure a front case fan (see photo 'bays'). This photo also shows two spare bays below my two optical drives so I think I should simply be able to move the HDD bay up to the two empty bays and create space for the air to be sucked into the case.

I've also got a vent on the removable panel on the side of the case (see photo - this funnel extends to over the stock CPU cooler). I assume I can't fit a fan to this as the panel needs to be removed!

So what would you guys recommend as the best solution:

1. Moving the HDDs and adding the front vent fan (would this be a 90mm or 85mm fan because I can't see 85mm fans on scan etc)
2. Getting a VGA coole... Read more

Answer:Fan/cooling arrangement

You have a couple of options.

1. You could buy a new case with better air flow. Antec makes some nice cases that aren't too expensive.

2. You can install a 90mm fan in the front (90mm fans have 85mm mounting holes, I believe). If you do that, moving the drives would be a good idea. If those are 3.5" bays above, you won't need adapters to do it. If they're 5.25" bays, you'll need adapters to mount the drives.

3. An extra GPU fan isn't practical in your case. There's nowhere to put it.

4. You could consider an aftermarket heatsink for your CPU for better cooling. This is a good one:

Cooler Master: Hyper 212 EVO

There are always options, though it can be difficult to cool an older case. My best suggestion would be to see if a newer case with better ventilation is in your budget, and if your components would fit in it.

Files within a folder are not arranged in logical order, i.e... a file named 01121-4587 will come after one named 12-14528.jpeg. How can I get the files to be arranged in logical order by first number of the file meaning all the 0's then all the 1's down to ABC's.i.e... A45-62547.jpeg, not even paying attention to the - mark within the file?
 

Answer:Windows XP file Arrangement

You can't. "-" is ascii 45 and "0"-"9" are ascii 48-57. The files are sorted using your locale. You can rename the files, or build your own file manager.

Hello, everyone,

I am in the middle of an assembly right now. Should have thought things over... but...

I'm using the Antec 900 case with a Corsair TX750W PSU. The case comes with two front intake fans, a top exhaust fan, and a rear exhaust fan. The PSU is situated at the bottom/back of the case. The two intake fans take up 1/3 of the case each from the front.

My problem is that the TX750 comes with so many frigging cables, that I don't know where to put them. By default, the case places its two front-facing fans on the bottom 2/3's of the case. I'm wondering if it would work out okay if I moved the fans to take up the top 2/3s of the case and have the TX750 wires shoved into the bottom compartment, where they won't impede airflow.

Is that a good idea? Was there a purpose that one of the forward fans is placed at the bottom of the case?

Thanks for your help!
 

Answer:Antec 900 Build, Fan Arrangement

No point putting intake fans in front so close to the exhaust on top.

I'd vote leave it.

Hi, I've got thousands of photos on my computer. It took me days to manually arrange all my photos. I'll be getting a new computer, I will be transferring all my photos over to it. I don't want to spend days re arranging all my photos. Is there a program that can save the arrangement of all the thumbnails so that I don't have to spend days manually arranging them? any info is greatly appreciated
 

Answer:Save arrangement of thumbnails

Thumbnails? Why not just get a good image-viewing program. Picasa? Faststone? Lightroom?

I think the thumbs/files will be arranged however you arrange it (by name, by date, etc...) so wouldn't it be a matter of using that same organization scheme on the new computer?

I was looking for a slim keyboard whose arrangement of buttons is similar to what we can find in some laptops - wihout numeric keypad, having Delete, Insert, Home, End, PgUp and PgDn buttons close to one another in a 2x3 group. The only option found so far is the model 31P9490 made by Lenovo:


However, I didn't want a keyboard with a touchpad.
Given so many constraints, does anybody know if the keyboard I want really exists ?

Thanks,

Answer:Keyboard buttons arrangement

Buy the Logitech diNovo Edge Bluetooth Keyboard and other Computer keyboards & mice at circuitcity.com

I know i have seen more generic ones at Circuit City in store as well. But i am not sure if they are available where you are in S. Am.

OK Microsoft, nice keyboard, but where’s the numerical keypad? | Hardware 2.0 | ZDNet.com

That has no numpad but not as compact as you want.

PFU Systems - Happy Hacking Keyboard

Compact but does not have the F keys where you want them.

Other than that i dont think you will find it. Might have to hack one off a Laptop and convert it.

Here's something a bit baffling.

I've a ******** of images in a folder and they're arranged in order of modification, from oldest to newest. Right, when clicking on an image and opening it in the Windows picture viewer, when I go to scroll through the images they seem to have been placed in alphabetical order despite the folder not being set for this. I'd like to get them back to being viewed in order of 'last modified' and simply setting the files to be shown in this way isn't doing the trick.

Any ideas?
 

Answer:File Arrangement Problem

If you are in detailed view, you can click where it says "Date Modified" and it will sort the images by the date modified.

Is this what you have done? I have never seen it not work before.

I was wondering why some program shortcuts appear before folders and other items on the desktop and other shortcuts appear after the folders? This is the case no matter how I arrange desktop items. I did not know some programs even had desktop shortcuts until I looked at the desktop folder (I have a lot of folders on my desktop so some stuff is offscreen). Even in the windows explorer view of the desktop, changing the sorting option to type still arranges certain desktop shortcuts above the folders and others after the folders and a few different file types. The type of both say "shortcut" and I right clicked the properties of shortcuts from both sets and I did not see any different settings or ticked off boxes that suggest why they are treated differently.

I've been meaning to prune down the folders and files on the desktop, but I would still like all of my program shortcuts (including ones I create like "Safely Remove Hardware" when that icon sometimes does not show up at all on my toolbar) to all appear before the folders.

Hello,

I have Win7 Pro running on a dell PC, operating in administrator mode.

My monitor looks best if I set to 1024 x 768 (4 by 3 ratio LCD old). After setting that resolution and re-arranging some icons, I log off and shut down. on restart and login, the previous 1280 x 768 comes up with the old arrangement of icons. Why doesn't the PC remember the settings?

Dimension 4600C 2 GB RAM.

Answer:Won't keep resolution & desktop arrangement.

I really haven't kept up with Win 8 but I'm getting free licenses thru school/ACM and I'm probably buying a second 830 SSD soon so I figured I'd toss Win 8 on it and slowly migrate my stuff. I'm wondering how it partitions the drive by default tho.

Win 7 used to do the recovery partition but I'd avoid it (by deleting it during setup) just because it wasn't all that useful (beyond Bitlocker & System Restore) and it needlessly complicated my drive image backups. Has any of that changed?

I'd start the install and just check for myself but I haven't bought the spare drive yet and my Win 8 copy is downloading maddeningly slow so it'll be a while...
 

Answer:Default Win 8 partition arrangement?

You can do the same setup in win8 as win7. Delete away.

I love the windows auto arrangement function when moved to the edge of the screen, however there is one that is very annoying, that is bottom edge.

I have one of my monitor in portrait mode, and sometimes I want to view two windows, one on the top and the other on the bottom. But I can not cover the all the area down the bottom because once I go near the bottom edge, Windows maximizes it.

Now I know in the "Make the mouse easier to use" page, I can "prevent" it all, but I just want to disable the bottom edge and leave the top, left and right edge as the way they are. How can I do that?

Thanks.
