Currently I have a desktop shortcut to PuttyCyg (a modified version of PuTTY) which I have configured Ctrl+Alt+C as a keyboard shortcut to launch the program. Trouble is, once there is one instance of the program open, when I enter Ctrl+Alt+C again, instead of opening another instance of the program, it brings the window of the currently open instance to the front. This is strange, because when I actually click on the shortcut multiple times, the default behavior is to open multiple instances of the program. How can I change it so that hitting the keyboard shortcut forces new instances to open? Do I have to resort to things like writing a VBScript?

Hi guys n girls,

I have for ever got sick and tired of right click -> open Send to Menu and creating a Desktop Shortcut for a file or app....then needing to go to the Desktop right click the newly made shortcut and then removing the trailing file extension, dash and words shortcut in brackets. If you are like me and you want a solution where you just right click -. Create shortcut and forget and not need to do anymore then look no further.

I have small AutoIT app (compiled script) that does exactly that.

Virustotal readout - God knows why anyone would use any of the virus scanners flagging AutoIT as a virus.

Hello,
I recently purchased a new Windows 10 laptop, and it has an odd issue which my old Windows 10 machine didn't...

All the icons on the desktop (except the Recycle Bin) are showing shortcut overlays (little blue arrows on the lower-left corner of the icon) - whether the icon is an actual shortcut (just a pointer to a file/folder stored elsewhere) or whether it is a file (stored in the "C:\Users\MY_USER_ACCOUNT\Desktop" folder).

This is really irritating me, since I frequently use the desktop for temporary files (like downloads, etc) and like to clean it up every so often.

I have attempted to "restore" the default shortcut behavior via registry settings (Shortcut Arrow Icon - Change, Remove, or Restore in Windows 10 Windows 10 Customization Tutorials ) but that didn't change the issue I am seeing.

I would like the overlays to display properly - with overlays on actual shortcuts, and no overlays on files/folders located in the "Desktop" folder on disk.

Has anyone else experienced this behavior? Any ideas on how to fix it?

Thanks in advance!

I have a shortcut on the desktop. If you double click on it, it runs the target program just fine.
Under 'properties' I have tried assigning various shortcut keys like Ctrl+Alt+N and none of them work.
I have also deleted and recreated the desktop shortcut with no luck.
This was working a couple of months ago.

Answer:Shortcut keys not working for a desktop shortcut

Does the shortcut key actually show up in the shortcut itself or does the shortcut key not get saved? Try setting the shortcut key, and clicking okay/apply and opening the properties again to see if the key is saving.

Hi,

On Windows XP, it appears I cannot reuse a "Shortcut Key" that was in use by another shortcut if I deleted that other shortcut without first un-mapping the "Shortcut Key".

For instance (and what happened), I bound Ctrl+Alt+Shift+W to Word XP, and today removed Office XP and upgraded to Office 2003. The old Word XP shortcut is gone, but it will not let me bind the same keystroke to Word 2003 (the control keys appear as I type them, but then when I hit "W" they all disappear and it goes back to saying "None").

Has this happened to anyone else? And if so, how did you fix it? (I haven't tried rebooting yet; that might work, but I'd rather not if I can avoid it...)

Thanks,
Ken Beal

I can't find the shortcut tab or the target on a game shortcut. What I'm specifically trying to do is add "-console" to the end of the target, but there's no shortcut tab or target. The only tabs that are there are just general, web document, security, details, and previous versions.
Also that information at the bottom is somewhat incorrect. I don't use Mcafee for anti-virus anymore. Now I use Norton 360.

Answer:No shortcut tab or target in the shortcut properties

Hi and welcome to TSG.

I don't want to insult your intelligence here, but is it actually a shortcut? What you describe is what I would expect to see for a normal file, the lack of a shortcut tab would indicate to me that it isn't actually a shortcut. Does it have a little arrow in the bottom left corner of the files icon?

Answer:4gb usb pendrive only using 1gb ?

this is a blind guess but it could be the 84 folders some equipment does not like too many folders. Could you start again but nest the folders inside other folders so that the drive sees a smaller no.

I have a P4 computer but its RAM is just 256 MB. If anyone knows any method to use a pendrive as a RAM, please tell it to me. Thanks in advance.

Answer:Using Pendrive as a RAM on XP

This is not recommended, not practical, and I don't think it's possible. USB Storage Devices store memory as Flash memory, which is different than the type of memory used in your RAM. They are accessed differently and have different characteristics.The main difference is that the Flash Drive retains its memory when the power is turned off, whereas the RAM is completely erased when you turn off the power.Also, if you manage to get the USB Drive working as RAM, it would be like driving a car without circular wheels. It is just too slow to be used as RAM.Can you not purchase any more RAM? It doesn't come too expensive.

Hi,

Have you checked your tv manufacturer's website to see if your tv can play movies from just a usb flash drive as most lcd tv's don't do that if this is what you mean. The usb slot on a TV is there mainly for updates for itself, although having said that there is a few that will let you play a slideshow of pictures from it.

Have a look online at LG's website typing in your tv's make model/serial number, it will definitely tell you.

I have a USB flash drive, of 8GB
it worked fine for months,
but unfortunately, it is not working any more!
If inserted, the computer recognizes it as a flash drive, and places it in the "Safely Remove Hardware",
but if we tried to open it, it says "Insert disk in drive..."
I saw it's properties it says: Rmovable disk>>> Size 0MB !!!

32 gb kingston pendrive not responding

Answer:pendrive not responding

If you've had it for a while it may have reached the end of it's life. There is a limit to how many times you can write to it, and a limit to how long it will retain the data that's on it.I have found the original low capacity ones to be far more reliable, I'm still using a 1GB one after 5 years daily use, whereas the 8GB one I bought didn't last more than a year. So I no longer buy them. I use external hard drives instead. They cost more initially but are more reliable and last longer so you actually save money over the longer term.

Question: Bootable pendrive

I know its been covered before however using a pendrive for a bootable drive are they faster than say a standard HDD due to the solid state memory?

Say for example i had a 4Gb pendrive and installed all the O/S and drivers onto the drive, would it boot faster than my 7200 160Gb HDD?

Or alternatively used the files and setting transfer wizard to make the drive bootable?

Surely the onboard memory of the drive has faster access speeds in a USB2 slot? Or does it have to be a USB1.1 because the drivers for the USB2 wont load at first boot?

Just being nosey really!
 

Answer:Bootable pendrive

Nope, a USB stick isn't any faster - some new SSDs (actual hard drives) are around the same speed as a good HDD.

A bootable USB stick will be quite slow and won't last as long as it has a limit on the amount of writes. They are good for playing with Linux though

Question: Pendrive problem

Hello

Today, i bought myself a 512mb pendrive, i wanted to use it, windows recognized it as a removable drive without any problems, so i drag-n-dropped a file onto the drive window, but it froze at 30 percent

Ive tried rebooting but no change, the files were still freezing at 20-50 percent

Ive tried to disconnect, and then connect my pendrive, but this also didnt work

I went to a friend of mine to see if this is because of a badly manufactured pendrive, but at his place everything seems to work out ok

Now, im quite a newb to computers, so if you guys could hook me up with any solutions do this, id be very thankful

My system is winxp sp1
 

Answer:Pendrive problem

first i would say, get sp2 and all the updates, and you'r sure you have no bugs, i would try to copy one file using xp right click. can't get much in 512mb.but clean temps. defrag, run chkdisk, unplug it, restart, nothing else running, try again.

just got myself a 16GB Kingston Drive and what i want to do is put 2 or more bootable images on there create my own boot menu so i can choose what to use when i need it

saves carrying a bunch of CD's

e.g.
1 x windows 7 ultimate install
1 x windows 7 basic install
1 x Hiren's boot CD

i take it, its possible just unsure how to proceed.

something like yumi..... http://www.pendrivelinux.com/yumi-mu...t-usb-creator/

Yumi works very well but I think you may have problems with two Windows Install ISOs. There is a specific mention of that in the documentation. I don't have any install ISOs but I have a WinRE repair ISO, A Macrium Boot ISO, Puppy Linux, Memtest86 and the Hirens CD on mine.

Hi, I have an r32 and I'm trying to boot from a pendrive to start Ubuntu.  I used the Ubuntu creator to make a bootable pendrive. When I press F12 and choose "usb external drive" it boots into windows xp.  So far I changed the setting allowing usb to run as "a" drive but it still boots into xp.  The Ubuntu live cd boots up fine. Thanks,

Answer:Booting from pendrive in R32

Good day.
Been using True Crypt on my desktop and its working fine,I have several important medical info stored in the True crypt file.And I also have a backup of the files.
Now what I'm looking for is for some easy explanation on getting True crypt to work on my 8GB pen drive,Would that be possible on an 8GB drive or would I need a larger one,The files that I have saved on the desktop are in PDF format so maybe the 8GB would be okay?
Now is it straight forward for me to get this software on to my pen drive which a backup of the files in question are on it.
Looking for a straight forward method,Do I leave the pen drive in the FAT format or would it have to be changed?
Many Thanks In Advance.

When I plug my usb pendrive into usb port computer hangs. If I go 'ctl'+'alt'+'del' it tells me prog.'MSQSRV32' not responding. only way out is to end task. After this if I go to 'device manager' the icon for pendrive has red X on it and properties tell me windows has had trouble accessing mass storage device.

it looks like a driver problem, I have never seen anything in device manager with a red x, usually only a yellow conflict sign.What type of pendrive is it, and where did you buy it?the only thing I can think of is to run the system file checker, put the w98 cd in the drive, click start, run and type sfc and allow it to replace any corrupted files from the cd.

Answer:pendrive not able to format...!!

Worst case: Your pen drive is dead. A pen drive that has gone through thousands of Read/ Write cycles can die a natural death when its flash controller decides that it had had its full run and it is no longer safe to write any data on it.(simple non-technical explanation. )

Since you have not given any details about the pen drive in question like the model/make/capacity, for how long you have been using it, whether it is still under warranty, whether other pen drives works normally on your computer,whether you had tried this pen drive on another computer and with what results, and if it shows in the Windows Disk Management how does it appear (is it RAW) etc., etc., it is not possible to give any specific suggestion to deal with that problem.

So here you go on a round-trip.

I had purchased a Transcend Jet Flash 700 USB 3.0 16 GB Pendrive from Flipkart in mid September 2011. The pendrive is not even a year old.

Yesterday I inserted my pendrive in a friend's laptop to transfer files of around 1.5GB. The pendrive had more than 10GB free space. 70-80% of the transfer was done but then his laptop's battery drained off and the laptop obviously got shut down. Since then, whenever I insert my pendrive in any device the blue light on it blinks for around 10 seconds and then the light turns off too. The pendrive is not detected.

I have tried reading the pendrive on my friend's laptop, on my laptop and my tablet too. On each device, the pendrive's light blinks for about 10 seconds but nothing happens.

Please help, is there any way by which I can fix it?

Answer:Pendrive not being detected - Please help

Do you get any error message?

Does the pendrive show up in Disk Management? If so a screenshot will be helpul to give a trageted solution hopefully.

That said, if you do not have any data that you may want to recover, you may try Jetflash Online recovery

my DVD drive is not detecting any cd/dvd.So I want to install XP sp2 from pendrive, please tell me the procedure for this.

Answer:to install XP sp2 with pendrive

Hi durgesh_mmm and welcome to TSF !

Make sure you changed the boot order priority to CD-rom first in the BIOS.

If the DVD/CD drive is really dead then the easiest solution would be to replace it or borrow a friend's for the time of the installation. If this is a laptop you can use an external DVD drive (if the laptop doesn't support booting from an USB device you won't be able to use another method anyway).

What's the brand and model of your computer or of your motherboard ? You'll need to make your USB drive bootable, have a motherboard that supports booting from USB devices and edit several files because XP isn't designed to be installed from an USB drive.

Sir, I have 4gb kingston pendrive. I want to partition it into three parts(three drives)
Is it possible if yes plz tell me how

Answer:Partition of pendrive

1) Windows will not let you create or see multiple partitions on removable media. But you can do it with linux. See this page.

[SOLVED] Making multiple partitions on USB memory stick

2) Another approach is to try and turn your USB drive into a fixed disk by ‘flipping’ the removable bit in the firmware. This is the digital flag that tells Windows whether the drive is ‘fixed’ or ‘removable’. You can do this using the Lexar BootIt utility.

LEXAR JUMPDRIVE USB FORMAT TOOL - The CD Forum

Lexar tool makes creating bootable USB flash drives easy

Create separate partitions on your Corsair USB flash drive « Corsair? Blog

Let me add that the Lexar utility may or may not work on your particular drive, so use at your own risk.

3) The safest option is to buy a few cheap, low capacity drives and use them for individual purposes.

Is it possible to install XP onto a USB pendrive and boot it from there? If it is possible, how to do it?

Also, does it have any drawbacks, disadvantages? I think I read somewhere that flash drives have a maximum lifetime, which is measured in write operations performed on them. If the number of write operations exceed this number, the flash drive will eventually get unreliable.
And, given that Windows is using the pagefile almost constantly, it will ruin a flash drive in a few hours. Can any expert confirm this?

Thanks,

Jimmy

PS: A little background for those interested.
I want this because I want to separate my internet banking operations from all the rest I do with my computer. So I need a second system, which is securely away when I work or surf or play, and which, therefore, is inaccessible for any possible attacks originating from viruses or hackers. (So a 2nd partition won't do, because it's part of the system all the time.) I don't like the idea of always changing hard drives, whenever I want to do banking, so I need an external source for booting the OS. USB pendrives came to mind.

Also detected "autorun.inf" and asked me to do a restart. I restarted thne again same thing happened. Then I went to my friends house then I scanned my pendrive on his pc with Norton. norton detected something called trojan and immediately removed that shit from my pendrive and helped me to get trolled as I'm a kaspersky fanboy sorry I forgot to take screen shot.

do note that norton deleted virus from my pendrive along with all my documents without single permission.

I am pretty sure kaspersky can scan usb drives. If you enable auto-scan when inserted in kaspersky settings it will always do it.

Maybe you have it turned off?

Hi all,

This seems like a fairly standard message - but I just can't figure it out?!

When I plug the pendrive in I can't 'see' it in my computer.

Someone has said it may be to do with the fact that I'm at work and have some network drives mapped. I've been into 'Control Panel' and then 'Admin Tools' and then 'Computer Management' and then 'Disk Management' - and then I can 'see' the pendrive is connected.

It seems to be automatically mapped to 'E:' - but then when I go back to 'My Computer' 'E:' isn't one of the drive letters being shown?!

Help please!!

Thanks - James.
 

Answer:Sony USB 2.0 Pendrive

The E: drive is probably one of your network drives. Are you sure it is not listed in My Computer. Network drives' letters are displayed in the end of the drives description.

Just change the USB pen's drive letter in Disk Managment to something that is definently not used.
