how to set up the folder options to display the number of subfolders or items when its selected. It used to display in the bottom of the folder window but got disabled. Any folder clicked on would display in a small footer the number of items stored in in and size.
When trying to copy a folder from a memory stick to my external HD it says Destination folder access denied. You need permission to perform this action. No doubt its something similar to my last post, but I can't seem to get around it. Any info would be great. TIA BTW I have 2 memory sticks and only one came up with this.
i am trying to rename folder'S name message displays THE FILE OR FOLDER DOESNT EXIST.i tryed to run downloaded registry fixer to fix this problem,but its opens in notped with lots of simbols.i have windows vista 32 bit.i think it occured after installed updates
I have several icons/files from my "User" folder showing up in the "Computer" folder (several in duplicate), PLUS numerous blank icons. This seems to have occurred after the Common Files folder became corrupted, after I somewhat riskily decided to power off while Vista was attempting to come out of Sleep mode - it had already taken about 3 mins and I was in a hurry - bad move, I know. That delay appears to have been due to an old version of Online Armor, and has now been fixed (by an update). Chkdsk scanned and (apparently) corrected some errors, and I also ran SFC which said it had corrected some errors but had also found some that it couldn't correct.
I don't know how this happened, but I didn't do it myself. For some reason,my Program Files directory has been changed to the Photos directory type, so it changed from the details like file type, size, etc., to rating, photo size, etc.I cannot figure out how to change the directory back to a General file folder type. The toolbar shows things like Slide Show, etc.The sub-directories are all fine and appear as a General type. I'm running Vista Ultimate 32-bit, without SP1.How do I change the folder type back to General?I can't figure out how with this single folder.
I have C & D drives, I use D for mundane filesdownloads and portable apps. However, I have a few folders that's are different from any I've seen. I don't know how to explain it other than using a detailed example.
I have D:Folder1 I can rename Folder1 to whatever I want. E.g it will appear as D:NewFolder However the dir location of it still points to D:Folder1
I have also scanned the registry for D:Folder1 and D:NewFolder there are no references of it. I've reformatted the C: drive multiple times and reinstalled windows. So I know it's nothing to this specific windows installation (the folders have been like this for about a year) It's not really a problem, I love it because I can rename the folder without messing up links etc. At first I thought it might be a junction, however in cmd it still shows as <Dir> not <Junction> I also checked for hidden folders on the drive. I found nothing.
I haven't used Windows mail (only used to read news groups) in some time, when I went to use it this morning I received this error message; Folder could not be opened Windows mail could not open this folder. The possible causes are not the problem. I have 2 gig memory and it was working fine when I only had 1 gig of memory. Disk space, I have over 90 gig of free space.
This has happened to me before - somehow the folder formats change themselves, eg the documents folder has options along the top like 'organise' 'view''slideshow' and 'burn' ie like in the pictures folder. I found the answer once before in one of the forums, but can't remember where it was. And why does this happen? Also, when I go to 'Help & support" in the Start button, it defaults to Lenovo (my hardware mfg) instead of Microsoft Windows.
I've accidentally moved my Documents Folder into my user profile folder by mistake and now i have a mess. basically I now have a folder that goes something like this: c:usersdocuments and it contains a duplicate of everything that was already in the desktopusernamedocuments folder except now I can't rename or delete my user profile folders...ad I don't have a restore point to go back to what can I do?
how i can get this darn EZStickyNotes folder to stop returning t oMyDocuments folder every month after i delete it!Also,i found last month an EZListings.BSA that may or may not be related in c:/administrator/appdata/local/temp. This is getting old and i want to know how to get rid of these items permanently. I understand from barman58 in a seperate thread from awhile back, EZStickyNotes folder appears out of nowhere in Documents folder! that the ezstickynotes folder has something to do with a shareware program he gave a link to. How it got there is a mystery to me since i didn't install it, but some program installed it,apparently,and didn't leave any way for me to uninstall it if i didn't want it. I searched my computer for the easy sticky note program, but it isn't on my computer. I always do a scan of my computer with avast,malwarebytes, superantispyware,and windows defender after finding the ezstickynotes folder for viruses, etc and it always comes up clean.
The contents of My documents folder is displayed in my computer folder, some icons are double and a whole lot of other white icons "empy" files, see screenshot 1. Screenshot 2:
- Right clicking, double clicking on the white files does nothing - Cannot select them and delete - Opening a folder takes me to that folder (If i open "Pictures" it takes me to C:UsersNotandiPictures) - Deleting a folder there deletes it from My Documents too
EDIT: These direcotries are also displayed in the SEND TO: menu, exactly the same as in my computer, but no the empty white files. See screenshot 2
My 'C' drive is a 30GB partition, big mistake. It should have been more like 40 or 50GB partition but I cannot be bothered to format, re-partition and re-install everything. I have about 3GB of COD5 mods in my appdata folder. Can you create a 'virtual folder' in my appdata folder so when the game goes looking for the mods it will find them however the actual files will be stored on another HDD?
Sorry, I could not find the correct place to post this. Basically some how I accidently moved my Contacts folder into my Windows folder. Now the Windows folder template has dissapeared and in place of it is the Contact template, when I open it i can add and remove contacts but inside the folder is all of the Windows sub folders. How do I get this back to normal please, I am afraid someone else will hop on my computer and carelesly delete my contacts folder which contains all those subfolders. I did try one result i saw about going into regedit and deleting those "Bag" files but they didnt work.
In my previous email program of choice, Outlook Express, I used to beable to select the "to" function within the email message template and see a display of contacts that included the FOLDERS. In Windows Mail, the same action calls up ALL the contacts and NO folders. ALthough I can select multiple contacts from the Windows Contacts folder and through "action", install them in the "To" pane of an email message, I cannot jump from folder to folder to, for example, select contacts within another folder whom I wish to CC on the same message. The "Action" sequence always generates a new email template, posting any selected contact or contacts to the "To" pane.
I do not wish to create GROUPS and then go through the convoluted process of calling up the group in the "To" pane, and then deleting the ones I don't want. Needless to say, this feature was critical to my email flow and organization. Am I missing something? I have checked every forum and group I can. Others report the same issue without resolution. One forum individual said, "That's the way Windows Mail is".
When i try and change the name of any folder, new or old, i get an error message that says "the file or folder does not exist" . i have tried every registry fix, download, settings change that i can find, and nothing helps. i have tried the fix on the microsoft site as well, but to no avail. if there is any ideas out there as to why the fixes that seem to be working for other people aren't working for me, they would be much appreciated. i am running vista business x 32 on a lenovo laptop. the operating system came preinstalled. i cannot recall any particular event that may have caused this...
How does one display the full contents of a folder and all its subfolders in Vista? In XP all one had to do was right-click on a folder, select Search and press Enter (typing nothing in the search box) and it would display everything in a folder and all contained subfolders. It's frustrating as I have to use my netbook with XP when I want to search through my external hard drive rather than my spanking new Vista laptop!
every time I rename a folder, Vista changes the folder view settings in that folder back to the default for that specific folder. I have gone through the tutorials in this forum about making Vista always remember the current folder settings. That is not my issue. An example of what I mean: Let us say I have a folder named "Music" and the folder view settings are set to 'Music Details'. Fine. But let us now say that I also want to show the bit rates and/or the length of the songs. 'Music Details' does not have this by default, so I right-click and at the bar (tab? menu?) and choose to show them. So far so good, and my settings are always there. However, if I change the folder name to something else, the view settings revert back to the original 'Music Details'. Is there a way of stopping this from happening? I often change folder names and/or move them around, and it is annoying to always have to add/remove what I want from the view settings.
Suddenly, WinMail won't save an e-mail in the Sent folder nor save in the Draft folder. Yes, In Options, Save a letter in the Sent folder is selected. Nothing changed, just suddenly stopped saving anything. Is there a way to uninstall Win Mail and reinstall? This program is a constant screw-up.
I know the title doesn't make sense, here goes. I have Vista Basic and I installed a program named "Sudoku 600" in "C:Program FilesSudoku 600". I let the program generate a puzzle and then save it as "Puzzle 01.sud" in the program's folder. When I look in the folder, the file is not there. I can use the "Command Prompt" and do a 'dir' and it is not there. I can hit "CTRL F" and search for it and it is not there.
When I ask the program to load the file it IS there and it loads fine (no, it isn't in a database or somewhere else - there are other "*.sud" files in the folder that were put there by the program installation and each puzzle is a stand-alone file). I can use a program called "Agent Ransack" to search for it and the file is there and I can click on it within "Agent Ransack" and it opens fine. I have the Sudoku program on a Windows XP machine and the files are saved individually and show up in the folder. Why are they hidden in Vista and not XP?
When I open the cookies folder, a message says "This folder is empty." The same goes for the Recent folder, Startup folder, and others. What gives? I am the only user of the computer, and have full administrative access (as far as I know). This problem began after I recently downloaded SP2 for Vista Home Premium.
I tried using a tweak to move my "user files" folder's to "my documents" folder left from the XP OS which was on another partition on my hard drive, it didn't work well so I reversed everything. Now every time I click on "contacts", the "my documents" folder opens up which now shows as a shortcut in my Vista's "user files". My Contacts folder (which is empty) is still in the "user files" folder. However, I cannot open Contacts by a shortcut or within the Windows mail.
I checked the Contacts shortcut in the Start Menu and it points to ""%Program Files%Windows Mailwab.exe", so it seems that wab.exe is messed up. Is there a registry tweak or a similar trick to correct this?
I am using Vista Ultimate 32-bit and I want to add a 'new folder' button to the button bar in my folder view. I do a LOT of file relocation and I make new folders constantly and want a one-click solution. I searched the forums first but found no solution. Thank you in advance for the help. I am NOT looking for a right-click option or a menu add-on. I just want a button.
Has anyone experienced a problem with inability to create new folders? This is happening within my documents area, apparently no problem in Outlook. Have tried right clicking and using the new folder icon. Cannot name new folders or rename older ones. Creates the folder, but won't name it.
I have a music folder with about 4gig of music, recently when I add any mp3 files to it, it is not doing it alphabetically? once, I could move my mp3's to it and it would add them alphabetically, but now it adds the mp3's to the top of all my music files?, I have to drag them to the right place, like A,B,C Etc..artists names.can anyone help me here?why is it suddenly acting up?
I have a folder named Documents on partition Data E:, The folder is hidden and I haven't been able to unhide it. I do have access to the folder, though, and was even able to drag the subfolders into another folder on Data E: , but I find it very weird that the folder does not show up on Data E: To illustrate what I mean I put two screen shots
i created a new folder in my hard disk, but could not rename the folder. When i created, the folder the created with the default name "New Folder". When i try to change the name of the created folder, it does not get changed and also does not show any error message it still remains as "New Folder"
I want to use System File Checker (sfc.exe) on my laptop. I only have arecovery partition and no original Vista installation disk. I tried logging in to my Administrator account, typing in CMD, using it in Administrator mode - then running sfc /scannow. It gets to 56% then quits with a message that says it can't complete the process. How can I check my system files for validity? My Avira anti-virus says that I may have five unsigned system files (heuristically).
my "Pictures" folder, the whole thing, not just the contents got moved to the Music section. I guess I accidently dragged it there or something. I noticed it, wondered it something was wrong. So, I clicked on the start orb and clicked on my pictures. It was still there. So, I deleted the folder that was in my music section and now the whole pictures folder is gone. I tried the "shell:mypictures, but here's the thing... it seems it creating the folder on my DESKTOP. I do NOT want it there. When I delete the folder from my desktop, this is the message it gives me
