where is spell check in windows 8? or what ever you call it now. how do I correct my spelling in email or anywhere for that manner? and does windows 8 have copy and paste? but it's the spelling thing I can't find and need.
We got a new computer in the office and it is running Windows 8.1. We also have 2 older computers and they are running win XP. I have them all networked together and everybody can see and edit all files on any computer.So far so good.Here is the problem: MS Access will not open any database files. I get the attached popup. The file is not outside my intranet. It resides in a subfolder of "Documents". The folder is called "Data Base Files". As I said, the file can be seen by anu user, but can only be opened in the Windows 8.1 machine, where it resides. Q: how can I open the file on the XP machines? Of cause they all have Access installed. How do I get around the popup?
My weather app keeps telling me the conditions & forecast for Helena, Montana. I am sure it is a wonderful place, and I am thrilled to know it is now 32 degrees F outside, however I live in New Jersey. I cannot find a "change location" function in its settings. Where does the weather app get its location info from, and how can I correct it?
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 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 downloaded few video files from a streaming website using Internet Download Manager and couple of such files do not playback properly. In Windows Explorer (detailed view and preview pane) it shows the file sizes as few hundred MB (which should be correct) but when I check the file properties (right click file -> properties), it says the file size as 0.
Now it doesn't let me delete the file, rename it or move it saying that Explorer cannot find such file. Tried unlocker. No good. Tried CCleaner. No good. I even ran CCleaner's wipe free space thing. No good.
I thought it was some missing index messing with everything. So I did a regular check disk from Computer but it didn't fix anything. Then I did a full check disk from cmd prompt which ran in the next boot up and didn't fix the problem either.
Now, instead of fixing this issue, the Action Center says that it found a problem with the drive and wants to run check disk every time I boot to Windows. It reboots, runs check disk, doesn't fix anything and gives the same error once again upon reboot.
I can fix it the hard way; that is, move everything from the D: to backup drive, format D: the restore. That's more than 2TB data! Backing up is not a problem because I already have backed up everything I need. Restore is the hard part. Will have to do it overnight anyways.
When you right click on a photo and go to Properties -> Details , there is a link at the bottom called Remove Properties and Personal Information that will remove the camera EXIF data, GPS location and other metadata.
I took a photo on my iPad and emailed that picture to my Windows 8 laptop. The photo contains personal information including my GPS location that I want to remove. When I try to remove it I get an error message saying File Access Denied....You need permission to perform this action. I'm the only user on this laptop...I'm the Administrator. I have Full Control over this file in permissions. I even added the Take Ownership thing to the right click menu and tried that, but it still wouldn't allow me to remove the personal information from the photo.
It works on photos taken with my other digital cameras, just not with photos taken with my iPad.
The issue is finding the file location for my flash drive. My computer only has 3 external USB ports. I have tried all of them, when the flash drive is plugged in somewhere on my computer it should indicate another drive location. I can't find anything....not sure where to look or if I'm looking in the right place. All that shows is c: drive & E: drive. The E: drive is exclusive for the OS system restore (can't be used; not accessible for anything else). The only other is the DVD drive. Nowhere can I find evidence of the flash drive plugged into the USB.
I have all the essential drivers & everything is up to date [I have a task scheduler & Driver updater software installed. All drivers are up to date. This is a new computer, only 2 months old].
I have gone into device manager & checked all the USB & composite serial bus controllers to make sure they are powered on (my computer has an energy saving management thing & it will possibly deactivate the hubs when not in use). According to the power management settings they are not set to "sleep" but all ports are active. I can't figure out why I can't find my drive, nothing is appearing when I have the flash drive plugged in.
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.
My laptop is running ok but I have noticed that certain programs have been taking a lot longer than usual to install/update (e.g. iTunes) but they always do. Then the last few days AVG Antivirus has been wanting to auto-update the software (not just the virus definitions) but each time it would freeze during the ''configuring'' step and subsequently cause every other program running to freeze and stop the opening of any other program - although I could still move the cursor so not a complete freeze if that makes sense.
So today I removed AVG with the removal tool and tried to do a fresh install but now I get a failure message immediately telling me ''MSI Engine: failed to initialize the package''.
How to go about fixing this and ran system file check which said corrupt files were found but it was unable to repair some of them. Here is the log:

How to read one of these or even if it effectively evaluates the status of the installer.
I have a new laptop which has Windows 8. I left it at work one day just screen locked and when I came back and entered my password, I saw that a wireless connection profile had been establihed under the name of "Iphone". I cleaned that profile but after that my laptop started to slow down very much. I reinstalled Windows 8 but the problem stays. Also the update database always crashes and I alwas have to fix it. I tried antivirus and antimalware software bout could not get a result. The machine is so slow on Internet and when I try to open a directory, it takes ages.
I tried using a batch file to run ccleaner at log on. But it always takes forever when it cleans Firefox. So I made a batch file to just delete the Firefox temp folder. And I unchecked Firefox in ccleaner so ccleaner ignores Firefox.
Here's the batch file.
Code: RMDIR 5bngz3ew.default /S /Q
I put it in the task scheduler. When I run it it says it cant find the file specified (0x80070002). I set the task to run with highest privileges. But every time I run it it gives that error. I don't know why its giving an error when it deletes the folder. So it works fine. I just want to know why its producing an error.
I have been trying to install a product called Thumbsplus which was giving me a ODBC Driver Manager Error - Database source name not found and no default driver specified error.
After trying a fews things I starting looking at the ODBC Data Source Manager in windows 8 and noticed that I could not access the System DNS tab. ( I would get a warning " you are logged on with a non-administrator privileges. ) even thought the account Is an administrator account. So I logged off and entered in as administrator and still the same message.
Something is wrong and I suspect it has little to do with the thumbsplus program as I should be able to enter into the system dns tab without receiving this error message.
PS: If I say OK after the dialog message the manager with open up and allow me to click the add button but since I dont know how to add the apropriate info there I did not go further, hence to say the error message probably did cause thumbsplus to not install correctly.
Spell checking do not work on Firefox in the Windows 8 x64. I mean back when I was using Win XP (for 10 years), the spell checking worked in every browser. I am talking about that red underlining appearing when a word is misspelt. Been using Windows 8 x64 for two month now and didn't see that working on latest FF.
Windows8 navigation. Can not find familiar file directory to access files, instead apps and app store! Could some one direct me how I can turn off start screen and go back old fashion ways. Else I will have to go back to my Vista.
Windows 8 FILE EXPLORER has begun prompting me that it "can't find" or items "do not exist" when I try to manipulate the files in any manner. Of course they DO exist and oddly, if I repeat the command, the job gets done.
So...the functions seem to work, but I must repeat them and deal with this pesky prompt.
I am reluctant to use System Restore as I have made some time consuming changes to my OS since this problem started and do no suspect it will be successful.
The problem is that I can't install the .NET Framework 3.5 on my Windows 8.1 because when i try to install it, appears:
"Can't install the following feature: .NET Framework 3.5
Can't find the specified file. Error: 0x80070002"
The same if i download the dotNetFx35setup.exe setup from Microsoft Website. I tried also in other 2 ways suggested here (Installazione di .NET Framework 3.5 in Windows 8) :
- In Control Panel -> Programs -> Enable or disable Windows Features -> .NET Framework 3.5 but i receive the same error - I insert Windows 8 DVD in the D: Unit and i type in the prompt command this code:
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.
