I saw many posts here about users privacy in Windows 8...I'm logged in with my online account,I bought activation key from them and even I will use a local account they will know who is the user by that key.
The question is: With Windows 8 i'm not really the owner to my machine...?So they known all about my macnine all about my Internet history all sites...etc...?
it happens from yesterday, the problem is when I playing games on my Dell inspiron N4050 and then the main power where the charger pluged in is turn off (it is the most problem in my country that there is heavy short fall of power), the laptop is remain ON just for 2 or 3 seconds and then its suddenly OFF. its not happening before, why is that,? why is the laptop didn't get power from the battery.? . when not playing games. and the main power (electricity) is gone, then this problem is not occurred.
Where is the Windows 8 Product Key location on a Latitude 10 Tablet? I looked in the shipped documentation, the back of the machine and under the battery and did not see it. Is the Win8 product key published anywhere on my system?
The only persdict.dat file I can find is for Thunderbird. (I'm fairly certain the apps don't share a file.) I go to Firefox and type something into a random website's comments (dorkdorkdork), and right click and save that to the Firefox custom dictionary, but I'm not able to find that string anywhere on the PC? So if I go to C: and F3 to search for dorkdorkdork, it should be able to find that text on the machine right? Since the unique text is in a standard unencrypted text file.
I have a few Programs that have Databases. When the program is setup, the Database gets setup in My Documents. If I change the location to another folder, the Program still shows the Folder in My Documents. Is there a way to stop this?
Is there a way to do this in 8? I've been doing it since Vista, but I can't seem to make it permanent in 8.
Redirect a folder to a new location
I need the default my documents folder to be on a different drive, I know I can "add another location" for the library, but when programs automatically use "My Documents" they still go into the C: instead of being they would be directed to the D: because of the above procedure in the link.
No Apps can find my Location. (their not finding an incorrect location, but not finding ANY location info). I have Windows Location Platform enabled in Control Panel. I have Let Apps Use My Location turned on in User Settings. All apps have Location turned on..but. NONE OF THEM can find location.
One App will give me this error "Location Service Error: Either using the current location is blocked, or network is down".
Is it possible I inadvertently disabled an essential startup program or service?
I've had this error for some time wherein I would try to open my documents folder and I get this message every time: 'C:UsersMeDocuments is not accessible. The file name, directory name, and volume label syntax is incorrect.' I also noticed that nothing was inside the folder at all, as I've checked its properties.
However, it seems that all those original files in the documents folder along with the folder itself seemed to have been moved to a different directory, as I managed to open it from my desktop in the windows explorer. It only appears from there too, as I've checked my libraries and no documents folder existing as well.
The only time It did open was when I tried creating a shortcut of that inaccessible folder onto my desktop and opening it from there. It's bothering me because I can't seem to install anything properly without a message telling me that it can't access my documents files or that it can't find the directory, etc.
I have Win 8.1 running in my PC; I don't know how and when, but the default location of screenshots (as taken by pressing Win key and PrntScr together) has changed to a random folder somewhere in drive E. I know that location, and if this is possible, how can I change that default location to wherever I want?
I am using time freeze program and at same time I am using an free vpn service which pasword changes per week. The time free program has an option to keep some folder and files non freez while freezing active. For instance while freezing active user can select desktop to not be frozen by this way after restart pc will not delete changes done on desktop. My main problem is that after a week later I have to defreez the pc type the pasword and refreez the pc. If I know where the pasword of vpn kept I will able to overcome on this problem.
There is a location with path %userprofile%AppDataRoamingMicrosoftNetworkCo nnectionsPbk that contain vpn configurations except user name and password. I need the location that store user name and password.
Always when i install a new version of windows i change the default location of music, documents, downloads etc. Accidentally i change the documents folder to Documents without the after D: (don't know why windows let me choose this location in the first place). But I can't change the location, every time i right click on the documents folder to change the location, explorer crashes.
First I thought it wouldn't be a big problem by changing the default folder in different programs to D:Documents for example in Office. But for soms programs it's a problem, I can't change the default folder and it takes Documents which gives an error.
It's also creating random documents folders on my D partition.
How can I change the default folder for documents? I'm not talking about the library folders, but the folders underneath "This PC"
I can't seem to figure out WHERE W8 stores the System Restore Points that I create so I created a 500GB Partition on an External HDD that I would like to use to save System Restore files and my question is WHERE in W8 can I CHANGE the location for System Restore?
I have built a rig to be predominantly used with Adobe Creative Cloud Programs. 32gb of ram, a 256gb ssd for Windows 8 (64-bit) and programs, a 64gb ssd for a home testing server, 3 hdd for storage, and another 64 gb ssd. I want to use the 3rd ssd for the Windows 8 page file and PhotoShop's swap file. My question is, how much of that should be used for each. I understand that the page file needs to be in its own partition, and I plan on allocating the remaining room for the swap file, but what size should I make the page file partition?
When I was setting up my microphone I set it up so that the mic comes on when the computer starts. I want to reset it so that it doesn't do that and put it in the Quick Launch toolbar / system tray instead where it would be more convenient a la windows XP style.
I have a friend who was deleting downloads and accidentally deleted her documents folder as well (Folder was stored on a external portable hard drive). She went to the recycle bin and clicked the file and chose restore, it showed all positive signs and removed it from the recycle bin, but there is no trace of where it went. It is not anywhere on the external hard drive (which was connected when she did the restore from recycle bin). I tried searching everywhere and there is no sign of it, where it went? We tried downloading a free data recovery program, but it is still scanning and will take another 4 hours.
My Dell XPS 8700 runs 4 displays. How do I set up my Folder Options so that one particular folder will open up in a particular display everytime when I open it. Every time I open a new folder, it opens up in the display/area where the last folder is/was opened. I had no problem about this in Windows XP.
When I use the Snipping Tool and want to save the snip, the tool wants to put the saved file in the Pictures library. Is there any way I can change that default to another folder or even another drive?
I have an odd installation issue. I installed an old app that I had when I was using windows xp. Its called Weatherbug Alert. Upon installation, it asks if you want a quick launch icon on the taskbar, and I said yes. It installed, but over by the little icons on the far right. I won't let me move it to were the large icons are on the left, by the start icon. And it won't let me resize it.
