Preferred Solution: How can i type onto a PDF document

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.)

Answer: How can i type onto a PDF document

The answer is ... it depends.If you are viewing a PDF document using Adobe Acrobat Reader, then that is a piece of software designed to view PDFs, not edit them.The basic choices are - 1. Buy a copy of the full Acrobat software, which will allow you to edit and create PDFs2. Highlight the text, copy the paste it into a text editor (e.g. Notepad or Word)3. Obtain a shareware / freeware PDF creator4. Visit the Adobe website, use their free online PDF software to convert it to something like HTMLBear in mind that the original author of the PDF document has the ability to set restrictions on the document (e.g. no copy, read only, digital watermark, etc, etc)

Hello,
My agency has a web site that I go to, log onto, and chose a file from that site. Once I pull up the blank file, I need to type in all the information on that file. I can not type anything! I tried to save it to my computer and it did not work either. Do I need to change format and if so how do i do that ? If it is not formatting, than what can it be and what do I do? I have a lap top, XP, and windows. I also heard if you have adobe, you can not type on documents.... if this is true, I have adobe.... so what would i do in this case? Please help....this document was to be turned in a week ago....
thank you in advance... Raq.

Answer:can not type in a blank document ! WHY?

It sounds like you do not have the proper software installed on your computer to edit this document.

You do not mention what format this document is in, but if it is a .pdf file, then Adobe Reader will let you read it, but not edit it.

My suggestion would be to contact the powers that be in your organization for specific instructions or for info on what software is needed.

Print off the document, fill it in by hand, and snail-mail it.Of course you could Scan it, convert it to a Text File, load it into your word processor and then fill in the details.

Answer:cannot type in body of document area

Not much different from 7, other then you can use tiles in the Menu, when you first click on it.

Just roll up your sleeves and jump right in.

What are you using for Word Processing? That part is a important vital piece of information.

Using Windows 7 I suddenly can't type in fields of secure documents (opened with https). I have tried documents such as for paying bills and making reports, using IE, Firefox, and Chrome. Applies to data entry fields or radio buttons. Data fields accept the click to select the field, but do not respond to data typed on the keyboard.

I have searched the web for "can't type in fields of secure documents". I get lots of hits, but none are appropriate and few have solutions anyway.

I don't know if this is a spyware caused error or what but it SURE is annoying and nobody can seem to figure it out. Whenever I double click a folder to open it I get a popup box that says document complite type mismatch. Document complite in the header and the TYpe Mismatch! above the giant X .. if that makes sense. I have downloaded and ran every single freeware spyware thing avail.. right now I have ad-aware, xoftspy, spywareblaster, disspy, spybot search and destroy all running and have deleted what they found but the problem is STILL there. I also JUST deleted ( i think ) these TRUSTIN spyware folders that were really difficult to get rid of but I think I got them. Anyway, does anybody know what the heck is causing that pop up error? Thanks in advance.

Answer:document complite type mismatch

At the risk of being petty and questioning your spelling is it

"document complite" or "document complete"

Restart in safe mode, hold F8 during start up and select safe mode from the list.

can you open the folders in safe mode??

My first thought is that you have installed some file utility programme or other which won't work on your system.

The word "complite" in that spelling is a foreigh language spelling, not sure which language tho'

Hello, I have been searching for a solution for over 4 months for this problem I am having with Windows 2000. Whenever I try to send something from the desktop to another folder I get an error “The Target can not handle this type of document”. The file is not transferred. It does not matter what type of file I try to send.

Also, I cannot copy and paste files into folders in Windows Explorer or even drag-and-drop.

This new word is annoying. I'll be typing a paragraph and then as I go down the page lines I just typed will disappear, or they will blend into another which makes them unreadable. Sometimes single spacing will turn into double spacing, or into no spacing. Sometimes lines of text will be doubled under each other. All the text is still there the way I typed it, but it's not visible when reading over the document. If I want to go back to read what I wrote I have to insert returns into these invisible lines of text to have them appear again. If I scroll up then I can't see the last lines of what I wrote, they are not even there until I again have to insert my cursor and then start pressing enter. I don't understand why everything keeps shifting around like that. Shouldn't it remain static throughout? It's the most annoying thing to have to type a document and have to go through these magic tricks every time.
 

Answer:MS Word 2010 lines disappearing as I type a document...

I would certainly check the "Options" of Word and unmark each automatic feature, except the ones you really need.

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

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

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

This is just one of those odd quirks I have run into. When I open a new document in Word, then open an older file, the new document closes and only the old one is displayed.Using Microsoft Office 2010, specifically Word.Windows 7 64-bitA bit of explanation, I often do research/writing for school or for fun. This issue has always happened, just one of those small annoyances.Here is the exact thing that is happening:1. I open a new (blank) word document, by clicking on the Word icon or by selecting "Open New Document" in the Word program.2. I open an older (saved) Word document, by clicking on the saved file, not by using the "Open" function in Word.3. The New (empty) document disappears, only the older document is open. I must now open a new empty document to write in. What I want to happen:1. Open new document2. Open old document3.

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

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

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

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

Thanks everyone!

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

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

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

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

I am running XP and Word 2000 and Nortons. Word will crash if you leave the document open for a while (there is no specific time frame) and then select close (icon). The error - Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close. The details are: AppName: winword.exe
appver 9.0.0.3822
Modname: kernel32.dll
modvers: 5.1.26002180
offset 0001eb33

This has pretty much happened since I got this laptop. I have reformatted and reinstalled everything (due to another problem) and still have the same problem with word. I have used the same CD on other computers to install word and they do not have the same problem.

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

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

Hi all.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Regards

Answer:[SOLVED] Word document freezes computer and document is corrupted

Hi all.

Just to advise that I am going to mark this topic as Solved......to a fashion so to speak.
I may resurrect it at a later stage if the problem re-presents it's self.

In a nut shell. I spent a lot of time today searching sites and performing tests including searches on my computer program.

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

All tests suggested would not repair the said documents.

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

Thanks anyway.

This might be kind of tricky.

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

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

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

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

Hi,

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

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

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

As a side note, this employee was using Outlook Express as their email client prior to the computer upgrade and all setting were imported into Windows Live Mail, which was initially used. The employee did not like Windows Live Mail, so I installed Thunderbird. It is used as the default email client and the only issue has been with Word.

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

Answer:Cannot find the saved revised document in Word document

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

Hi....
I'm using word 2010.
I have a Mailmerge document (actually a company letter with header and footer, used by a package called "Cash4Windows" [C4W]). This document usually has the recipients name and address etc. inserted by C4W.
The document is a template - "xxx.dotx".
What I want to do is strip out the Mailmerge fields and save the document as a normal Word 2010 document, 'cos the User wants to have a blank standard company document available.
I've spent a long time fiddling with the Header and Footer to get just what the User wanted, and I know i could just cut-n-paste the Header and Footer into a new document, then save it as "xxx.docx", but when I looked on various help sites the normal method in Word 2010 seems to be
on the ribbon tab
Select Mailings
Select "Start Mail Merge"
Select "Normal Word Document"
then save the Word document.
I've tried this and it has absolutely no effect, as when I close and reopen Word and select the previously saved document, I still get the "Opening the document will run the following SQL command" splash screen!
I've tried saving the "normalised" document with various different extensions, but nothing seems to get rid of the SQL.

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

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

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

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

thank you so much

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

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

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

Answer:document editing of scanned document?

You can use OCR, i.e text recognition. I'm not 100% sure if Adobe Reader does it, but Adobe Acrobat Pro definitely does. There's probably a few other free alternatives out there as well.

To Whom It May Concern (or anyone willing to help):
About 6-8weeks ago (guesstimate) I started getting a random window popup at various times while browsing online. The semi-odd thing about it is #1-same type of popup on both ie & my Chrome browsers; #2- I hadn't downloaded/installed anything around then; #3 I havenot been able to find their source; #4- Have not found any scan (malwarebytes, Panda, pcpitstop, etc) that seems to locate it, nor does my Winpatrol. The popup windows vary in advertisers, but most frequent is for the game "Big Farm". They are always fullsized page & open in a new window (not just a new tab), without my regular menu/toolbar, etc on top. I did notice a little icon right before the url it shows at very top, clicked it & got a menu-thing showing the permissions of the settings, etc & I could click to view cookie data (in which I was thinking "yippee I got it", lol)... I can "remove" & "block", however each time I can make sure I do all of the however it doesn't seem to help because in a little bit "poof" it comes up just as before! Of course it can get irritating!

so, a few years back i read a magazine that said to change the type of computer in device manager to standard pc because it made the computer run a little better or faster.

so now i've got my laptop and i've noticed it getting slower and thought that i would do this... VERY BAD MOVE!!!

i can still boot windows and everything - it meant that i had to let the computer reinstall all of the drivers for my hardware - but i have noticed in the device manager now that there are two instances of 'standard pc', there is also a new section titled 'other devices' with about 15 devices that seem to have no driver for them - some mention 'ISA' so i am guessing that changing to standard pc means that windows thinks my laptop is now a desktop pc with ISA slots???

i find that when i put my laptop lid down the thing shuts down, when i press the power button it turns off straight away (doesn't even shut down!). i had had the laptop configured for ages to do nothing when i closed the lid and give me shut down options when i pressed the power button. i look in power options and i can only cinfigure the monitor screen and hard disk power off options - every other option is not available. when i do bring up the shut down options i can no longer choose standby.

i have also realised that i can not turn on my wireless connection - i've tried all sorts to get it to work with no avail! the laptop is an acer ferrari and when i call up the manager app... Read more

I set up an Outlook account on a new-to-me laptop. I had been unable to download email for several months, since I didn't have a computer. I had been saving the emails I wanted to keep and had planned on downloading them into my new computer. After setting up the account, it appeared the system automatically downloaded all of my email from the server. I know this is default behavior which I turn off. So I went through that process, double-checked to see that all the email was downloaded, and went out to my server.

I discovered that what I thought were copies of the emails were left on the servier. I didn't want that to happen. I dug around to find the location that I have used many times to do this, and couldn't remember or find the location to make this change. So I came to Seven Forums. I saw the step-by-step instructions...go to the account, select it, click change, click advanced and uncheck the box that says "Leave a copy of email on server". When I went to the advanced dialog box for changing accounts, I discovered there wasn't any such box. I dug around some more, decided to subscribe here and ask why mine was different.

In the mean time, since all the email was downloaded to my computer, I went back out to my server, deleted all the email, and purged the trash. Then I went back to my Oullook and discovered all the email that I had "downloaded" was gone. After digging some more and callling my ISP service desk, I discovered that ... Read more

Answer:Is default email account type deteremined by type of device?

Hello Hagridore and Welcome to Seven Forums!

No, I don't believe the problem is because it is a Laptop.
Email can be very confusing to setup with the different protocols such as POP3, IMAP, and MAPI.

Referring to "Outlook" can be confusing, as it can mean different things.
Outlook may mean the MS Office Outlook client email program, or an Outlook.com email address.
MS has created confusion here imho.
When you say "Outlook accounts" do you mean email accounts in the Outlook client program, or Outlook.com email address's, or both ?
What email client program are you using, such as MS Office Outlook, MS Windows Live Mail, Mozilla Thunderbird, ... ?
Also fwiw, for WEB (online) access, Hotmail accounts are being converted to the outlook "WEB format" now...just to make it more fun

From what I know, setting up an Outlook.com (or Hotmail) email address with IMAP does not work without a 3rd party paid solution.
MS uses their own proprietary MAPI protocol (or POP3) for hotmail/outlook email address's accessed in a client program.
If it is possible to use an Outlook(Hotmail) email account with IMAP in a client email program, I would like to know how!

When I delete a POP account (Windows Live Mail) I get a warning about messages that might be lost...
Did you get a warning message when you deleted the POP account?

edit:
I just looked at this again, and see it's in the Office forum.
So, can I assume you are using MS Office Outlook on all the PC's?
If so, w... Read more

Hi!I was wondering if anyone could help me with this issue. My G580 is still inside the warranty and started showing this flickering lines and areas of the screen that are a complete mess. I am trying to request a service to get it fixed but I am asked for a machine type, model type, and serial number. I found the serial number but the form keeps complaining that it should be a maximum of 9 characters (and mine has 10). And for the machinge type and model type, I just can't find them. There's nothing on the sticker showing a model like it is shown in the help section. Can anyone help me please? Thank you!

My main notebook is a T60 type 1951. The backlight (or the inverter) is faulty (the screen has a red hue, and if I operate it at anything higher than the lowest brightness setting, the backlight just cuts out), and I need to send the machine back for repair (thankfully it's still under warranty). I have a spare machine, a T60 type 2007, and I am wondering if I can just plug the hard drive from the faulty machine into the spare one without any risk of screwing anything up, or of anything not working. I've looked on the net to see if I could figure out what the difference is between the two types, but I've not had any success. The only apparent difference between the two is that the faulty machine has a DVD multi-recorder (Mat**bleep**a DVD-RAM UJ-842 according to the device manager), and the spare one a DVD/CDRW (Mat**bleep**a DVD/CDRW UJDA755 according to the device manager). So: is it safe for me to simply remove the hard drive from the faulty machine before returning it for repair and simply swapping it for the drive currently in the spare machine? Many thanks in anticipation!

Answer:Swapping hard drive from T60 type 1951 to T60 type 2007

The biggest difference between the two is the fact that 1951 has Intel integrated graphics, while 2007 has ATi dedicated GPU. You'll have to load the video drivers if you're intent on using this drive, but it shouldn't bluescreen on you. Apart from that-and possibly wireless if the cards are different-you should be OK. Hope this helps.

Answer:Word Document within another document

The only simple way is to go to Insert, Object, Create from file and choose to insert your file as a link (these are 2003 instructions - would be similar in 2007, though.) However, you will then get a questions about the file having links and do you want to update...every time you open the file.
You could also just insert some text and hyperlink it to the other file.
Finally, someone could probably write some VBA that would insert the file and update it every time you opened it.

Unable to cast object of type 'System.Boolean' to type 'System.String'.I get this message when I turn on my laptop.What does it mean ? How should I fix it ?Dell Inspiron 1545, Windows 7

Answer:Unable to cast object of type 'System.Boolean' to type 'System.String'.

http://forums.techguy.org/windows-7/1084910-solved-unable-cast-object-type.htmlUse restore point to set computer back in time to an earlier working state in which this does not occur and then perform security updates etc seems to be the fix according to this. However one person stated that with Event Logging service turned off, that also fixed this issue if a restore point is not available to go back to.

We have a corporate Enterprise with IE11 on Windows 7. We are using Enterprise Mode instead of "open intranet sites in compatibility view" which is now unchecked.





We want sites to open in IE 8 Document Mode instead of the Edge Default which occurs when we uncheck the intranet site compatibility view.
We have the XML and Enterprise Mode Enabled and it is processing BUT the sites are changing from Edge to Document Mode 5 instead of 8?

I have tried ALL the document modes and even IE 8 Emulation and it doesn't matter which one we set, the sites are going to Document Mode 5, with the exception of Livemeeting.com which is opening in IE 8 Document Mode as it should.

Now we can set it manually in IE using the Emulation but it does not last the session.

<rules version="1">
  <docMode>
    <domain docMode="8">subdir1.mydomain.com</domain>
    <domain docMode="8">subdir2.mydomain.com</domain>
    <domain docMode="8">subdir3.mydomain.com</domain>
    <domain docMode="8">livemeeting.com</domain>
  </docMode>
< /rules>

The sites themselves have a DocType in them.

My PC's been running wierd for about a week now and in that time numerous infections have been found, quarantined and removed. Last virus scan came back clear 'hooray!'... or so i thought...I use AVG free 8.5 and within the space of 45 mins i have received two seperate threat alerts. The first one was exploit phoenix exploit kit type 1112and the second one was exploit rogue scanner type 1148 The next step was unplugging it and drop kicking it out the window until these threat alerts popped up as it proves the machine is still under the influence of something. Can someone please advise me on the 'whats', 'hows' and 'whens' to restore my PC back to how it should be?Many much thanks in advance!

Hi

I'm looking for a converter that will take my DV Type-1 AVI files and output them as DV Type-2 AVI files for editing with Premier Pro.

I´d like to capture directly with Premier Pro, but I can´t get my Panasonic NV-GS180 to work with FireWire, so I have to capture with USB-interface using Moviemaker

Thank you for any help
 

Answer:DV type 1 to DV type 2 converter

How large are the files? This software has a 4GB limit I believe.

SOMETIMES* I cannot type a lowercase "l" but I can type an uppercase "L"I have tried switching keyboards, but whatever maps to "l" is always missing. To type this message I had to copy the letter "l" from a web page and use ctrl-v every time I want it to appear.The letter does not appear in any application, including "cmd" and a bash unix subshell.The solution is not "clean the keyboard" nor "replace the keyboard"

Answer:vista - cannot type l but can type L*

If you boot to a live cd and it still fails we can assume it is hardware related. Two parts exist for a keyboard to work. One side is on the keyboard. It translates keystrokes to signals. The other side is on the motherboard. It converts keyboard signals to computer talk. One is bad. 1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

Hi everyone. My laptop was fine until a few days ago. All of a sudden when I turned it on and attempted to sign into my email, I noticed that the letters would erase as I typed them, sometimes immediately, sometimes not until I would finish typing the whole word. It is now extremely frustrating to use it beacause sometimes I try to type fast to get it all in before it gets deleted, and then I move down to say, the password field and begin to type there, well that will all erase AND the username field above will erase too! This occurs on every program, including the address bar when I try to enter websites in my browser. I've noticed that the cursor just moves around when it's not being touched and also sometimes when I try to select something with it, it will just open it quickly and close it. For instance, I cannot even access the start menu as when it is selected, it quickly flashes but will not open. Or sometimes give me an error message like "are you sure you want to abort this?" when I hadn't even touched anything. It's almost as if someone is watching what I'm doing online and fooling around with me (okay NOW I sound off my rocker)- but is that possible? It is so bad, that I am actually typing this question on my Sidekick because my laptop would not permit me to. I'm thinking otherwise that I must have some sort of bug, so I've run several spyware/adware checks, anti-virus scans including Ewido, reset the system back two... Read more

Answer:Everything I Type Gets Erased As I Type It!

Well, at first glance this seems to be a hardware issue and not a software issue. Something is 'firing', perhaps the keyboard, perhaps the mousepad or buttons. Don't know. But the fact that your scans come up clean kind of confirms this also. Are you using a mouse with this laptop? A wireless mouse perhaps? Disconnect the mouse if that is the case. See if the problems go away.EDIT: I almost forgot: Welcome to BC!

My type cover won't type. The track pad works on it. I took it to MS store, they gave me a new one. Then it worked for a week and acted up again recently. I took it in and they gave me a brand new SP4 ? . It worked when I was in the store and then stopped working an hour later when I left.
Any solutions? I'm thinking it's a setting cause the back lights come on and the track pad works.

Re the new usb type C and usb version 3.1 I get that the type is the physical connector, and that the 3.1 is the latest standard a port could utilize. What I don't get is the type A to type C connector cables. This is fine for connecting backward to 2.0 , or 3.0 etc. But how can a type A port (and connector) support all the features of 3.1 ? All my reading (dozens of discussions) have not said anything about this. It seems 3.1 requires a lot of wires, more than a Type A connector/port has, is that true, meaning Type A cannot carry full 3.1 features. Or in other words, no Type A port will ever support full 3.1?

I have a client with a problem creating new documents from the File > New > Word Document dropdown from Windows Explorer window. If I set her default font to Times New Roman it will stay for creating new documents from within Word. If she goes the other route mentioned above to create a new document it will always default to Courier. Also when she tries to save the document with the Save As item it defaults to txt instead of a .doc file. I am thinking there are two different templates for these two seperate ways of opening or creating a document.

Answer:after i type one word and press the spacebar i cant type the next word

This indeed happens but we still do not know why.
The only thing what works without doing a factory reset is to go to settings > keyboards > tap the "language" > and unmark "suggest text".
But after this you don't get suggestions during typing.

Hello everyone

I would like to edit the file type descriptions of a number of file types on my computer. I mean the text that is written in the "File Type" column. For example, after installing Opera browser, all HTML and HTM files have the "File Type" of "Opera Web Document", but I would like to change the File Type for HTML files to "HTML file" and for HTM files to "HTM file".

In Windows 7 I used a utility called Default Programs Editor, but that utility doesn't quite work on Windows 10 anymore. I have some file types here that do not show up in the list of registered file types, which I want to change. For example, I have WSXZ files which are opened by a program called SDL, and the "File Type" according to Windows 10 is "SDL WSXZ Document", but I would like to change that to "WSXZ Forward Package File".

How can I do this? Is there an easy way to do it?

Thanks
Samuel

Answer:How to change "File type" (aka file type description) of files

Hi you could try Gunners File Type Editor. It appears to be able to do this, but I've not specifically tried.

You might wish to retry Default Programs Editor, but run it as admin.

Note that doing this might prove a waste of time in Win 10, as MS as you may know has introduced a new type of update which is very similar to reinstalling Windows (as in the TH2 10586 November update/upgrade.

Or you could use e.g. FileTypesMan (Nirsoft) and use that to open regedit at the right place as a convenience.

I have recently bought a new mobile phone, made to specifications of Telstra here in Australia.

I have received photos from two different friends which are in the phone as "Multimedia message's"

The phone came with software (called Joinme, written by a local Melbourne company) for transferring photos to and from a PC, as well as backing up calendar, other message files etc.

As a beginner I have managed to transfer all Multimedia messages and Text messages from the phone to my PC, and appear on my PC with a file type '.sqm' (ie. for both the Multimedia and Text messages).

Windows cannot select a program to view the photos received as a Mulkimedia messages.

I rang the company who write the 'Joinme' and an unhelpful software support person told me to go and read their web site and anywhere the file type is a consequence of that used by the originating phones (my photos come from two different friends.

Can anyone help with a possible viewer for the '.sqm' files?
 

Answer:file type .sqm, viewing a file of this type

I dobut your gonna find a program to view them in Windows. SQM files are typically log files anyway. The program that makes them and your phone are you best if not only two ways to view them.

.........without using Microsfot's WEFT tool?I've tried using the tool and don't really like it. All I want to do is convert a TTF file to EOT. I know how to inbed the @font-face command myself into my website's design so don't need WEFT to TRY and do it for me and then report false error after false error while doing so.I just want the file conversion done, that's it. Are there any other programs out there that can do this for me?Cheers.

Answer:How do I convert a TTF font type to EOT font type.

Managed to get Microsoft WEFT working.Now the font I wanted my site to use is succesfully embedded into the pages on my website. I've done it as an inline style - really need to start a .css file for this site and link to it externally. I'm sure it'll make the site a lot cleaner and leaner.Anyway, the site works the way I want it to - if you use Internet Explorer for your browser.Apparently there's another method of embedding fonts for Netscape that I'm going to look at implementing.Opera and Firefox users will have to miss out, though, as neither browser supports font embedding at the present time from what I've read.

Hi all!  I'm considering buying an A 20m Thinkpad for some parts I need.  My machine is a Thinkpad A20m type 2628-4TU, and the one I'm considering buying is a Thinkpad A 20m Type 2628-4SU.  Does anyone know if I can swap parts between the 2, or know what, if any differences there are between the 2 machines? Thanks!

They are identical machines in all respects that matter for a parts swap.

Used to have the 'My Document' icon on the top right hand corner of my (desktop) screen. It has now disappeared. Can someone please tell me how do i get it back there againThanks

Answer:MY Document

Find the 'My Documents' folder on your computer, from 'Find' or in Windows Explorer, create a shortcut (right click on the folder) and drag this to the Desktop. Or cut and paste the shortcut to the desktop.Although the above will work it would be easier to give precise instructions if you give the O/S - 98,ME or XP.

I just noticed when I open WORD 2000 it starts out with DOCUMENT2 up top.

I'm pretty sure it used to start out with DOCUMENT1 and if I clicked on NEW DOCUMENT2 would come up, etc.

Each time I'd open WORD it would start out with 1 again.

I can't seem to find Document 1. Like if I accidentally saved it without naming it, wouldn't I still get another DOCUMENT 1 when I came back on again?

Not a big deal, just wondering.

The atttachment to an email is a .PPP document, and my computer is not allowing me to open it.  I am on wondows 7, a fairly new computer with lots of bells a whistles.  Do I need another programme to be able to open this file.  Thank you in advance, Edna

Answer:.PPP document

You need to figure out what software this file.ppp was created under. Once you know that then your system needs this same software installed or a reader if there is one. One common hit on google for the .ppp file extension is a british desktop publishing program such as linked here: http://www.serif.com/desktop-publishing-software/ based on info contained here: http://www.fileinfo.com/extension/ppp I have never used the software available for download at this site, so download/install/use at own risk.
