Maintenance :: Speed Up Some Apps Save As Times?

Jun 21, 2014

I haven't noticed this as an issue until some recent Windows 8 auto updates (last 2 months, is generous estimate). "Save as..." take about 20-30 seconds, for 2 3rd-party medium weight word processors, to display the folder window where your want to save. It looks like it takes the computer a while to "round up" all the directory info to display it in the "save as..." window.

I did read here & elsewhere on changing the general option in the properties of a folder. I don't think that worked. I did also read (here?) about disconnecting the networked folders. I did do that, rebooted. There was no speedup. But then I remapped them all, and now MS-branded apps like wordpad & word/excel, do show the "save as..." window within a second or 2, as before. (Note: I do clean up the reg daily).

Apps / Software :: (Winamp) Will Not Save Current Playlist On Windows 8 / 8.1

Mar 29, 2014

I did a clean installation of Windows 8.1 a few months ago.Then I installed all my apps and manually migrated settings of all the software i use ( from a Windows 7 image ) . I also did this for Winamp .

Everything works 100% since the installation, but when using Winamp the ' current' playlist which the program automatically creates sporadically will not save!After opening a random number of times, the playlist disappeared spontaneously thus winamp was started with an empty playlist.

This means i can load my recursive playlist each time i start Winamp ( very frustrating with 50K + mp3's ).I can not think of any software that is installed on my PC which could affect this situation (I don't use a separate antivir. Just Windows Defender).

What I've done so far:

- Uninstalled Winamp. Removed the settings folder. Reinstalled Winamp.

- No additional plugins / addons or whatever installed for winamp .

- Double checked and forced the read-only flag on the winamp user data folder (to make sure the playlist can be saved/written).

The settings folder is in the following location : C:Users<username>AppDataRoamingWinamp

The current playlist is saved as : Winamp.m3u and Winamp.m3u8

Apps / Software :: Open Or Save To Folders Locked Into Full Screen

Feb 25, 2014

I don't know if this is a Windows issue or just an issue with my software but I was using Corel Paint shop pro x6 and I'm not sure what I did but after opening files or using the save to option several times, all of a sudden the window started opening full screen and there doesn't seem to be any way to minimize it.

I tried to see if I could at least drag it some place but it won't move. I tried going to every side and corner to see if I could resize it that way but nothing happens. This is the only program that opens my folders in full screen so perhaps it has nothing to do with Windows but how I can get my folders to open in a small screen where you can move them over or out of the way of something you might be looking at.

Apps / Software :: Several Programs Suddenly Won't Launch Or Stops Working

Sep 15, 2014

All of a sudden many of my programs either won't launch or stops working right after launch.

I have no "reset" point that can fix this, and I have tried "sfc /scannow" (without having a clue what it does). After the sfc /scannow, the command prompt message said I had some corrupt files, and not all of them could be fixed automatically.

What can cause several programs to stop working all of a sudden, and what can possibly fix it?(Without re-installing Win 8 of course)

How To Save Px From Camera Into Win 8

May 22, 2014

i was able to get as far as having the px load from camera to computer & somehow all px got installed into the computer but only temporarily ! While camera was still attached to tower, I clicked on Control Panel/Computer/then the list of programs in computer and then i saw the name of the camera (cannon Power Shot) ...then Cannon 100, clicked on that and then saw all px - was able to individually email some to myself but when i detached cable from tower to camera and went back to ''Computer'' found Cannon 100 but no px were there -so obviously i wasn't able to save them.....but strangely enough 3 of the downloaded px were in the ''DCIM' folder (whatever that term means)...but i don't know how those 3 got there ! So i got far enough to download & 'view' but don't know how to ''save'' the px in the computer for future viewing without the necessity of attaching the camera....besides i'd like to delete some px from the camera once saved into the computer.....I'm so used to XP

How To Save Multiple Files With Same Name

Dec 21, 2012

I'm into photography and when I take pictures and put them on my computer they usually have the same name as several other pictures I've taken. In Windows 7 when I would transfer files from my memory card to my computer it would give me the option to 1) Skip saving the duplicate files, 2) save over them, and 3) keep both files and then it would rename the new file with a number after it (such as DCIM 102 and DCIM 102 (2))

In Windows 8 it seems like I only have the options to 1) skip saving the duplicate and 2) save over the duplicate....since I want to keep both files, what do I do?

Most of my pictures aren't really themed or anything, so there's not really a need for keywords, like "Birthday blah blah" or "flowers yada yada" etc. Anything similar to the "save both files"...?

Take Screenshot And Save It As File?

Sep 29, 2014

In the past whenever I would press my Win-key and PrtScr-key, it would make a copy of my desktop and automatically save it to a folder. I'm not trying to copy it to the clipboard, Win has a feature that will allow you to make a copy of the sreenshot and save it to a particular folder called Screenshot.

Anyway, I just recently upgraded from Win 8.1 to Win 8.1 Pro w/Med Ctr. After which this has stopped working. I use this feature a lot.

Not sure if my image insert worked, but here's what I'm trying to get to work again. I am aware I can use the Sniping Tool, but it does not work the same.

Browsers/Mail :: Can't Save Homepage URL

Jun 10, 2014

I'm running Win 8.1 with IE 11 and for some reason, my homepage started to show up a about:blank. I go to Internet Options to fix this ( and hit Apply. It looks like the change is made, but when I close the Options window and reopen it, the about:blank page shows up again in the homepage URL field. The same problem occurs if I simply close and reopen the browser. Rebooting didn't work and I got an error message that System Restore couldn't do a restore for my last restore point for some reason.

How do get the browser to save my homepage URL? Can I re-install IE 11 if there is no other option?

All Programs Crash When Trying To Open Or Save

Dec 30, 2012

I've been having some major trouble with all of my programs. At first I thought it was just with my Adobe Creative suite, but then I noticed it was happening on my Office Suite. Then on firefox, IE, etc.

Every time I open up the window to save or open a file from a specific directory, the program crashes. Resetting my computer works for a while but after a few hours, it goes back to crashing all my programs. I'm getting very desperate as I have some looming deadlines and this is really affecting my work.

I've tried 'refreshing' my system and it says my drive is locked...

I've tried restoring a backup but get an error...

I've tried formatting my system and it says a partition is missing...

How To Save To Folders Without Permissions Messages

Sep 9, 2013

I'm on a new laptop running Windows 8 Pro, and I'm running into permission issues. I just created an icon (using Axialis Icon workshop), and tried to save it to a folder which I myself created. But I got this message:

C:Program FilesIconsIN-USEGS.ico
You don't have permission to save in this location.
Contact the administrator to obtain permission.

Would you like to save in the My Pictures folder instead? No, I wouldn't like to save in My Pictures. I never use it. How can I get permission to save to the folder I want? I'm a sole user; I'm a member of administrators; I've tried (unsuccessfully so far) to give myself permission to run all programs without being nagged.

I suspect that taking ownership of the C:Program Files might do the trick, but it seems like an extreme measure. Should I simply follow the steps in Brink's tutorial 'How to Allow or Deny Access Permissions to Users and Groups in Windows 8'?

Windows Eight Account Switched Won't Save Settings

Sep 13, 2013

I've been running windows eight for around nine months now, and today it decided to remove all my apps and customizations on my computer. This normally wouldn't be a problem, as i could just re-install them, however, every time I log off or power down, the apps and any other customization resets to the default start up screen, and i lose the majority of my desktop icons. I've attempted a system restore and a system refresh with no luck.

Blank Screen After Waking From Power Save?

Sep 18, 2013

After waking my computer from power save (monitor turns off after inactivity) all I get is a blank screen. Monitor turns back on but only shows black. System is still responsive (numlock/capslock still work and I can sometimes make it make sounds by pressing random keys).

After this happens, putting the system in sleep mode (with a shortcut on my keyboard), then waking it up from that restores normal operation. I tried hitting PrintScreen while on the blank screen and pasting it into paint afterwards, and it shows the desktop. So why is this happening?

Recently installed programs: java, speedfan, notepad++

Changing User Account To Administrator Will Not Save?

May 18, 2014

i have recently migrated to Windows 8 from Win7 Pro and am coming to grips with the elevated security MS has dropped on us.Either by design or accident when i installed Windows 8 i made my account a standard account not an Admin account.

Following the steps outlined on this site, which has been highly useful, i have learned that the home edition of Windows 8, which i have, is rather more useless in changing many settings that were taken for granted in win7.

My issue in changing my account to an admin account is after successfully activating the admin account and signing into that, the changes i make in that account to my standard account, are not saved or reflected when i log back into my standard (or what should now be an admin) account.

My standard account remains a standard account no matter how many times i log into the admin account and change the account type.I am more than frustrated by the lack of ease Windows 8 has infused into what should be a simple process of having my account be the administrator account.

Is that good? or my pc wasnt resetted at all and there are still some files that weren't deleted.

Plus I found some google chrome files that remained in a folder and I click on one of them and it brought me to google chrome official download page.
