Apps / Software :: Acrobat Does Not Show Changed File Names By Default?

Mar 26, 2014

I have Windows 8.1 and just noticed this behaviour after reinstalling Adobe Acrobat Pro XI. Say I have a document called A.pdf. I want to rename the file so I right-click, click rename, and type B.pdf. The file still appears in the folder as A.pdf and when I double-click it to open it, I get an error from Acrobat: "There was an error opening this document."

This only happens with PDFs, not with DOCs or TXTs.

File Names Changed By Windows 8.1?

May 12, 2014

Win 8.1 has added a piece in brackets to files on my new PC. Now none of my slide shows work because each jpg has this bracketed info in the file name. I have tried overwriting the files with originals from a backup but these too are changed. Can I stop this happening? Is there a bit of code to delete the bracketed part of the many thousands of files affected?

I have loads of Nero nvc files that I can no longer open because of this name change.

File Explorer Sort File Names With Sub-Folder Names

Aug 1, 2014

Is it possible to sort a folder's contents with both File names and Sub-Folder names intermixed? I have projects in sub-folders, and 'support' files like this:

projabc (sub-folder)
projabc.txt (file)
projabc.bat (file)

amongst other projects. I would like all the 'projabc...' items to appear together.

Apps / Software :: Changed UAC To Default Now Cannot Use Metro Apps

Due to some programs I'm using, I had my UAC disabled via registry. Now, I restored my UAC in the registry by changing 0 to 1 in the key of EnableUA. Then to be sure, I changed the UAC to default. Now, I can't use the Metro Apps.

Show Known File Extensions Reverts To Default?

Jun 3, 2013

On the first day I received my laptop, I went into folder options and selected to show hidden folders and show known file extensions just as I have in 7, and Vista before that.

It seems like every few times I log back into my PC, this option has changed itself and decided to hide all file extensions. The showing hidden folders option has not changed back once.

Very strange! I thought it was a registry scan that was reverting the option, but it doesn't seem to be causing the issue.

How To Change Large Number Of File Names

Sep 20, 2013

I have a directory in which I have a large number of genealogical records, 756 to be exact. The files are numbered FIN_1881_001_001 to FIN_1881_001_756.

Due to an error when saving these files, I need to change these 756 file numbers to FIN_1891_001_001 to FIN_1891_001_756.

Is there any easy way of doing this without having to change each file name individually.

Delay In New Folder / File To Show Up?

Oct 13, 2013

My laptop is top of the range spec one with Core i7, 8GB RAM, Dedicated GPU, every thing else work super fast, i am very annoyed by this one problem which i have been observing When ever i create a new folder/file or download a new file or rename a new file it does not immediately show up, if i try to open the renamed file it says windows cannot find that file (because its actually been renamed but does not yet show up in the folder), Every time i have to press F5 to refresh the folder or the desktop so the computer refreshes and shows the changes made (i.e new folder, renamed folder, new file etc...)

Is there a way so computer immediately shows the change rather than me having to close and open that folder or refresh the page every time i rename or create a file ?

Apps / Software :: Show Windows Store Apps On Taskbar?

Sep 15, 2014

After installing all available updates of windows 8.1, my checkbox for "Show windows Store apps on taskbar" simply disappeared from the taskbar properties. Moreover, the on and off option from Settings -> Change PC settings -> PC and devices -> Corners and edges -> App switching also seems to be forever gone. In other words when I open an app I can't close it (Esc isn't working any more or X option) and I can't see it on the taskbar

File Manager Show / Hide Files In Ribbon

Jun 12, 2013

About the ribbon, I like it... One thing that bothers me though is that, it may be too easy to get to an option... namely show/hide files under the view tab. Is there a way to edit the contents of the ribbon menu, so I can get rid of the show/hide files toggle on the ribbon? I know we can hide the ribbon or use third party program to disable the ribbon altogether. Is there a native way to just edit ribbons?

Apps / Software :: Metro Apps / Tiles Keep Refreshing To Default Settings?

Jan 8, 2014

Metro Apps/Tiles Keep Refreshing To Default Settings?

I consider myself an advanced user, but I still overlook a lot of things and make mistakes like everyone.

Basically, Windows 8.1's Metro apps and tiles keep refreshing to default settings like it's the first time I've used them or opened them.

When I go to use Skype, it will always ask if it is allowed to use my webcam and microphone. It seems to remember the settings for a while, then forgets them.

I'm assuming this is CCleaner related, but I unchecked all of the settings that correspond to the Metro applications, and this changes nothing.

I'm unsure if I am actually deleting important information Windows needs without knowing. I usually delete logs on top of the usual things to keep my computer clean.

How To Add File Extension To The List In Control Panel / Default Programs

Feb 16, 2014

I'd like to add a file extension to the list given in Control Panel/Default Programs. In WinXP it was really easy but I hardly needed to use it as there seemed to be a lot more extensions available anyway back then. Unbelievably, (well, to me anyway), MS seem to have omitted '.flac'. How do I go about it?

Browsers/Mail :: Set Particular Folder As Default Location For Specific File Type?

Jan 5, 2014

how to set a particular folder as the default location for a specific file type, or, in the event that's not possible, just set it as the default location for all file types. Mainly I'm interested in setting one specific folder as default for every time I right click on an image and choose save as. I'm tired of having to browse through to my images folder each and every time. It didn't used to do this until I upgraded to windows 8.1. I don't really use "libraries" as there are only two folders I use for downloads. One is for images. The other is for everything else. I don't mind having to browse to my downloads folder, just not the images folder as that is generally what I download the most since I work with graphics a lot.

Maintenance :: Windows 8.1 - Any Way To Not Show Modern Apps In Taskbar?

Jun 29, 2014

Is there a way to make it so Windows 8.1 does not show any of the Modern Apps in the taskbar?

For instance, I like to keep NotePad8, Weather and some others running, but I don't want them taking up Taskbar realestate since (as far as I'm aware at least), those Modern apps will remain open until I close them for good by moving to the upper left part of the screen.

I suspect there's probably something I could do in the registry, and if there is, maybe someone could attach a .reg file for me.

I'm also attaching a screencap of what I'm talking about.

Apps / Software :: Skype Not Show In Control Panel

Feb 21, 2014

Have Skype on windows surface, however sometimes when I answer the camera doesn't turn on but I can hear voice. I believe it might be might be that I have two different versions on this computer because I can answer one pop-up but still see it ringing. restart tablet and call the person from my windows app and it is fine.

here's the catch---why when I go to my control panel can I not find the program? it shows up on my app screen but clicking all relevant selections on the control panel-it is no where? my past experience says maybe I have two versions on the computer or I need to install and reinstall the program with the latest, but unless I go looking for the actual folder it is non-existant.
