Different colour folders

Question: Different colour folders

When trying to find Documents in the file structure I found there were two folders one blue and one yellow and they were not the same. I suppose about 90% were the same but the rest were extra. I have recently changed from Windows XP to Vista. Could this have any bearing on the problem?Regards

I know this seems simple at first glance but I don't know anyone with a solution. I want to be able to have my file names in multiple colours. In the same way windows can show system compressed files in blue and regular files in black. i.e. I want *.exe files in red, *.zip files in blue & *.mp3 in green. In the same folder?

To take is one step further, *.mp3 (Podcasts) I have listend to in green & *.mp3 (podcasts) I need to listen to in red.

Its got to be a reg tweek or something but i can't find it. Anyone able to do this with out writting or using any 3rd party applications.

Hi Everyone,

I've just installed a new HDD and the drive letter E: and all the folders and files are in blue text. Would someone please tell me how I can change it back to black text? Thanks.

Regards,

John
 

Answer:Text Colour of Folders

the reason it is in blue text is because windows xp has compressed the files and folders.

ie when the name of files is blue they are compressed

you can change seeing this in the folder options i think
thanks

Answer:How to change the colour of folders name

You can change the color of the folder icon with this: http://www.foldermarker.com/change-folder-color.php (Windows does allow you to customize the folder icons), but not the color of the name of the folder, at least not without some registry editing.

Hi there gurus.
My pc doesn?t show certain colour objects in Publisher 2007 and some on-line sites. Overall, the screen colour is very good. I know the fault is localised, because when I switch to Print Preview in Publisher it looks fine and I can see all the object colours. (I only lose the colour with objects, not text)
Also, when I send a copy of a Publisher page to my partner who is on the same PC, it looks fine on her screen.
I?ve tried going to Install/uninstall programs and run the Repair, but to no avail. The guys in my computer shop are clueless without seeing it. Anyone who can help solve this for me is a gem.
Cheers!

What's cheaper: colour laser with genuine ink or colour inkjet with compatible inks?

I'm happy to invest in buying a colour laser: but I can't find any refills for lasers
At least they don't seem to be widely available

So, my choice is: colour laser + genuine inks or colour inkjet + compatible inks

From what I know, side by side: laser's are cheaper
But, how about when compared to genuine laser ink to compatible colour inkjet inks?

I should stress that for me needs, I am not overly concerned if using compatibles doesn't give me perfect results - just close as possible is fine for me

What's more important probably is speed of print at highest quality

ANY feedback would be great

Thanks

Answer:What's cheaper: colour laser with genuine ink or colour inkjet with ink compatibles?

Finding Compatible Remanufactured Color Toner cartridges can be dicey. While they may be available, the problem may end up being the company tht does the remanufaturing. It is also dependant upon the model printer you get. I have noticed that the savings on my Black Canon X-25 toner cartridge is only about $12 lower than the cost of a Factory original cartridge. There are sites that I would save up to $30 per cartridge, but part of this is eaten up by the shipping charges. For my toner cartridge, I am about 1/2 mile from the store that does nothing but ink and toner refill services, and their garauntee thier cartridges 100%. In 3 years I have only had to return one cartridge and it was an HP #17 Color cartridge.

Now per page printing cost on a laser is much cheaper than on an inkjet. Though the printer cost itself is usually much higher for a Laser. Personally I use the laser much more than than my Inkjet, but I do use the inkjet for all color printing. But then 95% of my printing is monochrome text.

Hi, I'm using the Aerolite theme with Aeroglass, and want a consistent colour for the borders. So I set accent colour from background 'off' and choose the colour. Fine so far.

Now that's ok if I log off and on.

But if I sleep or hibernate (not personally ) and then resume, the colour and setting are lost.

I noticed that on resuming, the border colour is present until the 'Please wait' screen appears, after which these settings are lost.

Any ideas? Thanks!

Hello.

I seriously need help with my PC. I've reinstalled Windows XP and Service Pack 2, and I can't chnge the Screen resolution or the colour quality. It sucks. The resolution stays at 800x600, the lowest possible, and the colour quality stays at 8 bit. I think I have a ATI 128 MB DDR Radeon 9800 Pro. I dunno whether thats a driver or what. And I also don't know my graphics card, or whether that will help at all.

I would swear at this point but I'm too young.

Hello Staff and Users of Vista Forums,
Recently, less than a week ago, I lost the control to rename or move my
folders. As you can presume, this problem is very tedious. I have looked
around the topics here on Vista Forums and have not been able to solve
the problem. I have taken ownership of my folders and that hasn't
changed the situation as suggested. When I do attempt to rename or move
my folders, I receive no message, and the file stays where it was, how
it was. This only happens with my folders, my files show no resistence
to being moved or renamed as I see fit.
I am running Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 1 and have owned
the computer for around one and a half years. Vista was pre-installed.
Thank you for your attention and thanks in advance for your help.

In the Navigation tool, Windows 10 provides a list of ways to access folders and files, including Quick Access and a group of other file or folder names. If I click on something in the group of folder names, not all files in that folder are shown eg. 'Documents' is one folder name, but if I search under OS C: and find my 'User' name and the the relevant folder, there are more files there than show up using the group. This is frustrating as looking under 'OS C: Users' is time consuming and requires lots of clicks, and I'd have thought the main purpose of having groups listed was to avoid this.

When you open the Windows 7, Vista or XP start menu, on its right side you will see some system personal folders displayed. On this RHS part of the Windows Start Menu, you have the option of displaying User, Documents, Games, Music & Pictures Folders.
While the first 3 are commonly use, most may find little use for the last two folders; and would instead like to replace them with their oft accessed folders like Downloads or any other.

- Folder redirection through the Group Policy Editor sounds like the same thing too, can only redirect 4 or 5 special folders.
- Junctions, but I dont just want to move where the files are stored, I want the folders to be gone from My Documents.
- Setting the folders to hidden, but I dont want to do that because I like having windows set to show hidden files (although if there was a way to make a button on the explorer toolbar to show/hide hidden files that would be awesome).

I found out how to move the folder for Maya already, in control panel you have to go into System, then Advanced tab, then Environment Variables, then make a new system variable with the name MAYA_APP_DIR then make the value be where you want the folder to be.

Is there a way to use Environment Variables to enter one path and make it redirect to another path, so when programs try to create stuff there it will end up in a different location?

I found this GREAT FREE program which can help to protect your files from all kind of Ransomware.
At the end is my video test and here is article from ghacks.net about this program.
The program is Abandonware but is working very good.

======================================================================================

Secure Folders is a free program for Windows that is available as a portable version and installer. It can be used to hide or lock folders, set them to read-only or block the execution of files.

If you share your computer at times, for instance in your family or when friends or colleagues ask you whether they can access it, then you may want an option to protect certain files or folders from accidental exposure.

Maybe you don't want someone else to spot your Justin Bieber wallpaper collection, financial documents or video files that you have downloaded from the Internet. Whatever it is, Windows does not really provide options to protect data from others if the same account is being used.

Note: it is best obviously to use different accounts, for instance a guest account for occasional users and accounts for colleagues or family members who work with the PC regularly.

Encryption is a solution but only if you keep the data encrypted while the computer is being used. It won't help you if the encrypted drive that you store all your secrets on is mounted at the time someone else accesses your PC.

I am assuming it is possible to enable offline files of multiple network folders but I can't get it to work.

Situation:

Server with 2 folder shares:
Share1: test1
Share1: test2

Mapped to a network drive (Share1) and was able to enable offline files.
I then mapped to (Share2) on the same server and the option Always available offline is clickable. Unfortuntely it does not do anything.

Is it just not possible to create multiple offline available folders using different mapped network drive folders from one server?

Hi,
I've lost my phone today and after localizing it on the website, blocking it, making some calls and luck I could recover it with the person that found.

- .android_secure
- Android
- LOST.DIR
Really? Android folders? So I've noticed also that these folders were created 30 minutes after my phone was lost, so very suspicious.
Yes, I have my phone know, but I really want to know if it is normal (?) to have these folders at a Windows Phone SD Card or if the person that found my phone tried somehow to do something with my SD Card or phone, like reset it or anything else.

Is there any way of telling Windows that these are NOT music folders?

Hi folks, this is my first time posting here.
This looks like the right place for a post like this.
I'm pretty knowledgeable. I've been building my own PCs for 20+ years.
I've been out of practice for a while, but I did a ton of research when I decided to build two PCs recently.

Even back in the day when most people only used one HDD, I would always insist on a two drive system, physically separating DATA from OS and apps. These days everybody is booting from SSDs, so this is a lot more common.

But I'm having one heck of a glitch that has me stumped.
If somebody has seen this before, I would love to hear some suggestions.

I connect the SDD drive into a SATA3 port, connect the optical drive into one of the SATA2 ports, and I leave the HDD with the data cable unplugged.
I boot from the optical disk and do a clean install of Windows 7 onto the SSD.
I install drivers from a USB flash drive, and finally get an internet connection.
I activate Windows and allow the updates.
Then I shut down.

Answer:Trouble moving system folders to 2nd drive... corruption of folders

You'll need to create the User folder inside D:\Data first, select it to move the shell User folder into. Otherwise is just moves Documents to Data if that's what you selected. You can see the new Location on the Location tab.

If you lose track of the User folder, open your named User Account folder to see if it's there. If not or if it's there but now has no Location tab to change to correct location, follow Option Two in User Folders - Restore Default Location - Windows 7 Forums

Under properties it says the location is where it should be. Also when I try to delete the one in the music folder it deletes both so it's not a shortcut.

Well for some odd reason each album is displayed within the band folder and within the music folder. It's says the proper location is it's location but it isn't a shortcut because when I delete it the album within the band's folder also goes away. It's note really a problem but it makes for a very unorganized music folder and I like my music organized and easy to maneuver through.

Answer:Moving files into folders puts them under Recent folders.

Is this a bug? I still haven't figured out if there's any solution.

Hi, I have installed Windows 7 because I need it for my Degree course and my son's iPod touch. I have only given it 30 gigs of space. I realize I'm going to need more.

I have an external drive that I have formatted ntfs. I have seen a tutorial here

User Profiles - Create and Move During Windows 7 Installation

that explains how to migrate your user folders to another drive. But I would rather mount (don't know the correct term???) the data to the individual users normal folders, so windows thinks that the Documents folder on the external drive is the Documents folder on the C drive. And Music, Videos etc etc for each user.

How would I do that? Thank you.

Working on a badly infected system -- HP with WinXP Home. Cleaned it up as much as practible with the likes of
SpyBot S&D, Ad-Aware, Ewido, AVG. Lots os stuff removed. But still running real slow. The manual cleanup is being hampered by inability to change folder options to reveal hidden files/directories. Just will not change, in normal or safe mode. Give it up with a Ops re-install or is there a way to reset folder options to respond to changes?

I have a Seagate Internal HD where i have "windows xp" installed that isn't working properly due to shock however i can still turn it on but it only shows up a blank black screen and doesn't go no where. So i had to put it in an external enclosure with my other "windows xp" PC . Doing that I can access folders like "programs" and "windows" and "guest documents" however what i cannot do is try to go inside the owner/admistrator folder because i get the message "access denied- this folder is unaccessible". When i go to "properities" it says it has 0 bytes however when i click on the "hard drive icon" itself it says it does have almost all the 120 GB (and over 48% free space) i have saved on the administrators account. I already tried running it on safe mode but it just restarts over and over and doesn't go through.

So please tell me how can I possibly recover files (only want to recover very important documents only) where windows is installed and I am not getting premission to check the "owner/adminstrators" folder and documents.
 

Answer:Can't access owner folders/documents but other folders in master HD! Please help!

An idea or 2

You could download and burn a Live Linux distribution (boots and runs from cd/dvd) this might be able to get around those pesky problems.

I would recommend Knoppix or Mandriva (DL and burn ISO) then make sure your pc checks the cd/dvd first (can be adjusted in your BIOS) then boot and you will have access to the files. (Unless they are completely borked-from shock)

OR
If you are not comfortable with that...
You can use a program offered here at MG's called Recuva

http://majorgeeks.com/Recuva_d5514.htm

(Note the above program can take hours to complete depending upon system specs-grab a cold one and kick back)

I have used it several times and have had very good results-

I have somehow made a disastrous mess of my favorites. I looked online for answers to this problem, and all I can find for a solution is cut and paste. This makes no sense to me for this particular issue because there's no way to "un-indent" a sub-folder and move it back in line with the primary folders.

I hope this is making sense to someone. I don't know how to explain it. Here's one example of the many I have screwed up: I have a "Daily reader" folder and a "Dog stuff" folder. The latter has a lot in it. Dog stuff is now mixed in with Daily reader. How do I make it a separate folder again?

Favorites in Internet Explorer are located in the "C:\Users\(user-name)\Favorites" folder. You could open it, and create new folders or move items around as you like.

Have many (300+) email folders as sub-folders within Local Folders.When I want to save an email, I 'drag/drop(paste)' the email in the appropriate folder (is faster than choosing the 'move to folder' procedure).
However, when hurrying (and not paying attention), I sometimes inadvertently move an email folder to be a sub-folder of another email folder. (I.E. a sub-sub-folder of Local Folders.)

To move it back to it's original sub-folder status 'under' Local Folders, I have to 'drag' it all the way 'up' to the Local Folder 'heading' and 'drop' it. Takes a long time !

There is no 'move' option when right-click on the email folder.

Any suggestion?

Answer:WLM 2011- Moving Folders Within Local Folders

My suggestion would be not to "drag" anything. That is a very unprecise method and you get the effects you are seeing. Move to folder... may take a bit longer, but it is always correct.

Also, if you keep 300+ email folders, you might want to do some weeding - unless it is for a business.

I have written code to recursively go through a directory and analyse the files within it. The directory i am searching is within another directory containing other folders. What i want to do is extend the code i have written so that it will search each of the outer directories

File dir = new File("directoryPath/directory1");
String filename1 = "directoryPath/directory1/file1";
List list1 = readFile(filename1);
List list2;
int count = 0;
List max = new ArrayList();

if (dir.isDirectory ()) {
String[] children = dir.list();
for (int i=0; i<children.length; i++) {
count++;
list2 = readFile(dir + "\\" + children);
...... do things here

}

}

So in the above example, i am searching files in directorypath/directory1, but directorypath also contains other directories which i also want to search. Does anybody know how i might do this? Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thanks!

Hi guyz,

I am new to this forum. Recently, I have been not able to see thumbnails of pictures. All i can see is the standard river and tree like thingy. Secondly, I can't open folders in the same window. Each time i double click, it gets opend in a new window. I tried different methods to both the problems like going to folder options, unchecking "always show icon, never thumbnails" , a full scan of my system( using norton). I even tried some of the solutions posted in this forum. But still both the problems are not solved.

One thing i noticed is that, when i on my computer, i can see thumbanils for few seconds then all of them get changed to the standard image.(river and tree). Could this be due to a virus or something?

I would be very thankful if anyone can help me in this matter.

Hello,

I am using Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit and I am ecountering a very weird problem.

I have a folder on my Desktop that I created called "My Travel Shots" that contains several folders inside of it. These sub folders within "My Travel Shots" contain .jpg files.

I can rename or delete these sub folders and they appear to be renamed or deleted.

HOWEVER!!.... When I use Internet Explorer and I am on a website where I can upload my photos.... I encounter a very strange thing!!

When I browse to my desktop folder "My Travel Shots" to select the pictures I want to upload, I can see all my deleted sub folders. I also can see the sub folders with their old names, along with the sub folders that have their new names.

For example... today I renamed a sub folder "Italy01" into "Italy June 2010".

When I was on a website where I was going to upload my photos... I used Internet Explorer to browse to "My Travel Shots" where I could see both the "Italy01" and "Italy June 2010" as subfolders, when I really only should be seeing, "Italy June 2010".

It's like Internet Explorer is seeing folders that are no longer there!! And clicking on these ghost folders even shows the .jpg files inside!!!

Refreshing the folders view when I am in Internet Explorer and even rebooting the machine doesn't fix this problem.

Hi,
I've been trying to sort this problem for 2 days and it's driving me nuts!

I can copy folder(s) but when I try to paste them into another folder or drive I get a pop-up -

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library Runtime Error! Program C:\windows\explorer.exe abnormal program termination.

when I click OK all my desktop icons disappear for a second or 2 and then they come back. When I right click, the Paste option is grey as if it has forgotten I've copied something 30 seconds before.

I can copy a few small files to different folders and drives but that's about it.

I've run anti-virus and mailware - nothing. I've run sfc /scannow, no results. I tried to do a clean boot but it couldn't find misconfig.exe . So I downloaded the file and tried to paste it into windows\system32 and it asked if I wanted to paste it over the old one. Clicking ok it said access is denied. So I ran misconfig from the desktop, did a clean boot, tried copy and paste and the same runtime error came up.

I checked the permissions for the windows folders and C drive: both said I didn't have full control, I just have Modify, read and write. When I tried to get full control it came with access is denied.

I've tried copy and paste in Safe Mode, still get the error. I don't know what else to do. Any help would be great.

Thanks.

Answer:NT4, Adding Extra Folders in Folders - PLZ ADVISE

Hope this is not too late. See if the following command works.Suppose your client folders A, B, C, ..., 0, 1, ...9 all reside in a parent folder called "c:\Client Folder" (which of course can be a drive on the network or server). Open a command prompt window and type and enter:for /r c:\"client folder" %1 in (tax, "accounting services", "corporate finance", "any other subfolder") do if exist %1 md %1\2004 %1\2005 %1\2006The command - for /r c:\"client folder" - asks the computer to go through the entire directory tree headed by c:\client folder.%1 is the variable, to be matched against the items in the set (the brackets) separated by commas and spaces (tax, "accounting services", ...).Then do: if these folders exist, then md (make directory).So the entire command is to go through the C:\client folder to look for the folders tax, accounting services and so on. If these folders exist, then make the directories 2004, 2005, 2006 immediately underneath the relevant %1 folder.Folder names with spaces in between should be enclosed with quotation marks.You can test it out on a test folder with its own subfolders first. I've tested it on my Windows 2000 machine and it works. I think these commands are the same in NT4. Double check the NT4 command reference.You can do this in a command prompt. Or you can create a batch file (not really necessary since it's only one single command). In a batch file I think the variable should be %%1 instead of %1.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask my particular question, but here goes. I have a folder for all of my music, and within that folder is a bunch of artists folders, and within each of those I have album folders, which contain the individual music files. I am trying to figure out an easy way to grab all of those album folders at once and move them to one main folder. That's instead of looking through each artist folder, and moving the album folders within each one which could be a very time-consuming process. I thought I had figured out a way to do this, but all of the song files were placed directly into the master folder without being contained within their album folders. Any idea how to do this?

Answer:separating child folders from parent folders

create new folder on desktop (or any other location you like)
click Start button
click Computer
double-click drive where music is stored
look at the left side of the window
double-click drive where music is stored (file tree expands)
click the triangle next to folder where music is stored (file tree expands)
click the triangle next to artist folder(s)
start dragging album folders to newly created folder

edit* that's one way to do it anyway

This is a problem with my mother's computer - ACER Aspire X1930 running Win 7/64. I'm trying to transfer about 4 Gb of photos and other images onto her hard drive. I tried using a DVD I burned, and also a thumb drive. I've checked both devices on several computers and all can open and display all the images. My mother's computer can open the media and display all the folders and even recognizes that the data takes up about 4 Gb, but every folder opens as empty - no files are listed. Any suggestions?

Answer:Computer Sees Folders, Not Pictures in Folders

The images don't have the hidden attribute turned on, do they? If they do, and your other computers are set to see hidden files but your mother's computer does not, that might explain the issue.

To see whether or not they're listed as hidden, open up command prompt, browse to the directory the images are in, and then run the "attrib" command. Any attributes will be listed on the left (hidden attribute is 'h').

I have just done a clean install of Win 7 Pro 64. I have set up four accounts and for each one I have moved the user folders to a separate hard drive by using the Right Click Properties > Location > Move. I have done this for the following folders:

- Desktop
- Downloads
- My Documents
- Favorites
- Links
- My Music
- My Pictures
- Videos

I have done it exactly the same way on each account (and more than once! I've been imaging the disk and have restored backwards a few times.)

The problem is, on three of the accounts, when I move the My Music, My Pictures, and Videos then they do move correctly but three rogue folders appear named Music, Pictures and Videos. And I can't delete then since they are system folders.

But the weird thing is that this does not happen on one of the accounts!

Please can someone explain what's happening and how to get rid of the extra folders as they're cluttering up the users home folder and causing confusion. Also some clue as to why it's inconsistent between the accounts would also help.

Answer:Moving User Folders - additional folders appear

Hello Lucian, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It sounds like there may have been a mistake made while moving the user folder's location. You can use OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to restore it's default location to hopefully fix this.User Folders - Restore Default Location
Afterwards, you can try moving it again, but if you are just wanting to save HDD space, then you might consider this below to be able to access the files from your libraries with the files actually located where you like instead. This way you will not have to worry about any potential issues that come with moving user folder locations. Create a new folder at any location you want.
Move any files you want into the new folder.
Include the new folder into a library of your choice.
If you like, you can also set the new folder to be the default "save" to location for the library as well.
Hope this helps,

Hi

I've got an annoying problem with my small office network. There are 3 PCs on the local network and we share files. Usually (but not always) if you are in one of the shared folders and you want to create a new folder, once you've right-clicked and created the new folder, you need to navigate away and back again in order to actually see it. This also happens when re-naming the folder.

To be clear this is what happens:

Right click, select 'create new folder'

Nothing appears

Use back and forward buttons

New Folder now visible

Rename folder, but it reverts to being called New Folder

Use back and forward buttons

Folder now appears with the new name.

Two PCs are using XP and one Vista, it happens ot all of them. Only happens with shared folders.

Any ideas how to fix this?

Hi,

I have read the READ & RUN ME FIRST and done everything on there and have attached the logs.

I have a folder and it has the same folder inside it and the same folder inside that and so on. I have googled it, and there is a newfolder.exe virus, however I don't have anything else going on right now, other than that problem. Every time I try to delete it by taking out a few folders, it creates more. Also, when I try to delete it all together, it says the path is too long. I am not sure what to do, I have tried many things before I came across this site.

Before this happened, I had a different virus (or maybe the same, not sure) which was defender.exe and it wouldn't let me open anything. I ran in safe mode and downloaded malwarebytes and found 2 trojans, and got rid of them. The next day (yesterday) is when this happened. I unzipped a file that a colleague of mine sent me and that is the same file that created multiple folders.

I hope you can help!

In my browser 'local folders' I've set up a series of folders, one for each year, with a sub-folder for each month, and each in turn has a sub-folder for 'replies'.I now have two years full in the OE6 window that I should like to save elsewhere, say in My Docs, but keeping the hierarchy of folders intact.Can someone tell me firstly is this possible, and then how.I've tried but cannot find a way.I can move individual folders onto the desktop but not a folderful. I've found the location of the folders at the bottom of the route that starts "Documents & Settings" .....etc, and if I try copying this to my docs ,then opening it using OE, it doesn't show the contents, even though the file size indicates the size of the files contained correctly.(I instructed the .dbx files to open in Outlook)Help, even if it is to say that it impossible, greatly appreciated.John

Answer:Saving a tree of folders and sub-folders from OE6

I am confused as to what you are trying to achieve.Do you want to just backup your folders? In this case just copy them to a backup medium, not the same hard disk.Do you want to backup your dbx folders and then remove them from OE but still have access to them?Possible but tricky.You will have noticed that OE produces a dbx file for each folder regardless of the folder's original location in the tree structure. If you have folders with duplicate names then OE appends a number to the end.For clarity's sake, rename your folders to something like June99. Now close OE and back up.open OE and remove those folders you want to clear out.If you decide you need access to an old folder, you need to recreate a folder with exactly that name in OE. It doesn't matter where you place it. Next copy any old email into it so that OE creates the dbx file.Close OE and overwrite the newly created file with your old one.I am not sure, but I think I have had problems with attachments in the past, but that was after I had formatted my hard drive. So back up your attachments first.

hi ,my requi. is like we have Level 1 ,2 & 3 Procesees and i want to create folders for all but here level 2 process comes under level 1 & level 3 comes under level 2 ... i have excel with list of level 1,2 &3 (coloum wise)how i will create folders those have all level 3 folders comes under level 2 & that all comes under level 1?does anybudy have any solution.....????

Answer:folders & sub folders from excel sheet

If you have a list of desired folder names in an Excel sheet and it's easy to tell which are level 1, 2 and 3, then it's possible that this could be done with VBA.We'd need to see an example of the layout in order to write the code.If you are going to post an example, arranged in columns/rows, please follow these instructions:To line up your data in your post, please use the pre tags found above the Reply box.1 - Click the pre icon found above the Reply box.2 - Enter your data between the tags.3 - Click Preview Follow Up to see if you like the way it looks. 4 - If you need to fix the layout, fix it in the Message box below the Preview box.5 - Click the "Check To Show Confirmation Page Again" box.6 - Click either Confirm button to Preview the post again.Repeat as necessary until you like the way the post looks and then click Confirm.

I wanted to know if there was a way to exclude the contents of a folder and any sub-folder from the Windows Firewall, specifically Java.

Unfortunately Oracle in their infinite wisdom installs each version of Java in it's own folder, under the main Java folder. For example:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_60\bin\ip2launcher.exe
and
C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.7.1_45\bin\ip2launcher.exe

Et cetera.

So every time Java is updated, a new exclusion has to be added, which is a pain to manage especially when you are doing most of that management via GPO's.

Now I can go in and exclude the specific file in the GPO, but I was wondering if there was a way to exclude everything behind

C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\*.*
That way I don't have to worry about excluding updates every time they come out. This is for Domain Traffic.
If this can be done let me know! Thanks.

When I open any desktop folder and try to resize it to a smaller size it goes to a small unusable size. From this size one can maximize or minimize the window but can not resize it. It also goes into a loop and when I close the window, my desktop and system tray icons temporarily blink off. This is clearly a problem with Windows so how do I adjust the settings for them?
One can resize app windoes, PDF folders, Word and Excel folders for example. Just not any folders created by Windows 10

Hey everyone, I'm having a very very frustrating time with what should be something very simple.
For a couple weeks I have been streaming shows to my ps3 from my computer. On my PS3 I have access to four folders, Videos, Music, Pictures, and Playlists, the first three of which I can locate on my computer. When I want to watch a video, I simply copy it into the Videos folder on my computer, then stream from there.
Now I'd like to stream music, my problem is that my music isn't in my Music folder, I have it in a separate folder that doesn't show up on my PS3. Copying over all my music would take time, and I'd also have to redo my WMP playlists. I have tried adding this folder to my shared folder list, and to my Music library, but neither of these things made a difference.

I've spent a couple hours now trying to figure this out, but I can't seem to find anything on google that relates to my specific problem, but there is absolutely no way I'm the first person who's ever wanted to access folder's other than the 4 I've mentioned. This is starting to get really ridiculous, I'm somebody who know's my way around computers, but I've never done any kind of networking before, but there's no way it should be this difficult to solve my problem, or that theres so few resources to help me..

Answer:How to add more sharing folders/stream more folders to PS3

You really would be better in using a DLNA server like Twonkybeam for sharing folders to the PS3. Windows Media Player does a very poor job. There are some others out there for media streaming.

Ok.. got a question for the experts.A friend of mine went out and bought an external HD.They want to move their "my documents" stuff to the new HD.I managed to use the "properties" of my documents to relocate the files to the new HD, but they are no longer private. meaning the other users of the computer now have access to those files..Not only that, the "temporary internet files" and user setting files, and such, are still on the C drive..How do we change the location of those files, and make the "my documents" stuff, private again, so that other users cannot access another persons documents?Thanks.

I like using "windguru" for forecasting the weather. Based in the Czech Republic, they're usually spot on which is more than I can say for the local effort.

Until recently I used Netscape 7.2 and subsequent to that Opera vers 11. These both colour coded the wind speeds and gusts and the expected temperatures; you know ranging from blue for cold to red for hot. For various reasons I have had to make use of IE-8. I can't get anything in colour. Temperatures and wind speeds are just black numerals on a white background. I've searched through IE's options but can't find any tweak to resolve this. The URL is www.windguru.cz and I'm running XP home. Can anyone help?

Thanks

Hi,

I know some basic stuff about computers, but I don't know how to fix this problem.

I have Windows XP. Firstly, the computer started running slower than usual for a while (a few weeks), then one day when I started the computer up, a screen came up in the DOS bit at the start asking me what mode I wanted to start in as there was a problem. I selected the option (and Im paraphrasing here) 'The last good configuration' as it seemed best. From then on, the colour went to 4 bit, and an 800x600 resolution. I can't change these settings as I normally would, as there are no other options available. I can use the computer fairly normally, except the awful colour and res. However, if the screensaver comes on, and I re-activate the screen, it will be totally messed up - the edges puffed out like a pincushion setting, black and white, lines travelling down the screen and flickering, sometimes going totally black then coming back again.

My housemate started the computer up and somehow got the original DOS screen back asking which mode to start in - he selected 'safe mode' and the colour was then good - except the internet then wouldn't connect. (I have broadband so it's normally automatic - I don't know how to connect it manually)

This is my brother's computer, so I don't know a lot about it - programs and so on - he's un-contactable at the moment and will be for a couple of months... I'd greatly appreciate any he... Read more

Answer:4 bit colour - why?

to connect to the internet in safe mode you have to select safe mode with networking

But sorry thats all I can offer at the moment
