I recently downloaded OneDrive onto my two computers.
Desktop 2007 Dell with Windows Vista, Word 2007, &
Laptop Acer 2013 with Windows 8.1, Word 2010, &
On my old desktop the files can be opened in Word for editing with no problem but on the newer laptop my files will not open in Word for editing, only in Word Online. Editing this way messes up the formatting.
I have a Windows 8 Pro ISO file, and I want to convert it to a Windows 8 Core ISO file. Is that possible editing some files or something like that? It is difficult to find Windows 8 Core files for download, so I downloaded a Windows 8 Pro one, can I edit it to convert it to a Windows 8 Core?
I have several webpages that I created in Windows XP using Notepad with simple html coding. When I open one of these files under Documents in Windows XP, it is shown exactly as it appears on the Web. In order to edit the coding, I click on "View" and then "Source" and the html coding appears.
I've transferred these files to my new computer with Windows 8, but there's no way to view the coding and edit. I right-clicked on a file and the dialogue box that appears includes "edit." But when I click on "edit," I get the message "There is no program associated with this file to perform this activity." Well, the "program" that I used to create the file was Notepad. Is there no Notepad in Windows 8, and if there is, is it incompatible with Windows XP Notepad?
Is there no way to edit html in Windows 8 without finding some editing program to download or purchase? (I gather from "Windows 8 for Dummies" that there isn't, since "html" is not even in the index.)
I have windows 8.1 and have been using Word97 on it just fine. My Excel97 still works ok. But now when I open Word or double click on my document it just puts it on the taskbar and doesn't open the window on the screen. When I hover over it on the taskbar it shows the docs that are open but I can't get it max. I restarted and the same thing.
I've just worked with a friend set up his new Windows 8.1 Asus desktop. When we open the OneDrive folder using File Explorer, next to each file it says "Online only". On his old Windows 8 computer, it says "Available offline" next to each file. Is there someplace we need to change a setting to make the files available offline on the new computer?
How do I stop One Drive from deleting files when I delete files from my pc?I want to try using One Drive for storage again but last time I used it, the online files disappeared when I deleted them from the One Drive folder on my pc.
Just bought a Windows 8 tablet, and not knowing anything about it. Specifically what we were trying to do today was sync his documents from his desktop to the tablet. OneDrive seemed the easiest way to do that, so I installed the OneDrive app on his desktop and logged him in on the tablet. And there were the files. But the problem is, they're on the cloud, and he wants to be able to access them offline.
Through googling, I discovered that there is supposed to be an option in OneDrive to "make all files available offline," supposedly accessible through the Charms bar, under Settings -> Options. But alas, I followed all the directions everywhere, and that option was not there. I took an appropriate screenshot:
Similarly, there is no option to "make available offline" when I access options for individual documents within OneDrive (by swiping up or down).
Why is this option not where it is supposed to be?
I have a need for inspecting a huge batch of files created by Word 97. They mostly consist of a complex mixture of figures that (I've been told) on the original Word 97 were all ordered into columns (but no *tables* format was used). On my Windows 8.1, I have Kingsoft Writer installed and this shows me just a jumble of words and figures whose meaning I can't easily guess. It can't obviously read the exact format of Word 97.
I know I can find a Word 97 Viewer somewhere on the Microsoft site - but nowhere I'm seeing anything mentioned as compatible with Windows 8 and I'm reluctant to install something that might compromise my great new computer. Would it be o.k. to install on Windows 8 a Word Viewer created for previous operating systems?
I usually set the Start In to the MS Office Folder or the File location folder, it doesn't seem to affect it either way. I created a folder in my username called Shortcuts and put all of them in there. Because Windows sees this as an executable program it will allow you to right click it and to pin it to the Start Menu even though it actually starts the saved file you need. I use this for my Access database files too. As long as you set the correct path to the file name, it works every time. You can name the shortcut whatever name you need as well.
Anyway, I thought I'd share it since it makes a great time saver being able to launch your most frequently used files straight from the Start Menu in Windows 8 rather than having to launch the program and then trying to open the saved file.
So i was editing the registry to try to fix all of my downloads going to my ssd instead of my hdd and now to cant download anything because it says path not specified and i cannot open certain programs (even the registry itself!) I cannot find anything on how to fix it!
I am really annoyed by one error I keep getting. I was just about to develop a website from the scratch so just wanted to have everything setup before starting. So, I installed apache server on my system. Now the issue is, I am not able to update config 'httpd' file as it shows "Access is denied" error. When I try opening the txt file using "Run as Administrator" an error pops out - "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action .....". I have tried many things but I am not able to fix this. In what time period I would have significantly created my site, I am just trying to fix this thing.
I have to open a lot of text-based files on my computer each day to change settings and such (for example the hosts file or the http.conf file, etc.) In order for this to work I need to press win-key, find Notepad, right-click, select run as administrator, then open file, browse to the file location and finally open the file. is a faster way (preferably via right-clicking the files) to open/edit a text-based file as admin?
I cannot open photos which I transferred from my old PC as MDI files. I have downloaded an MDI viewer but it is only free for 7 days and cannot get it to print in the right format. I have downloaded an MDI converter which gets the photos on the screen ready to print but won't print unless I pay for a license.
When ever I try to open a file, I receive the error I have attached. If I view download, right click the file I am trying to open and open it with reader, than it opens correctly. How can I get the file to open correctly without doing the work around?
I've been having this issue with my PC for the last 6 months or so. I attributed it to an aging graphics card but had a rude awaking when I purchased and installed a new GPU yesterday and the problem still persisted.
The issue didn't bother me too much as I don't game too often but I just bought a new R9 280x card and was hoping to catch up on some games I've missed.
The issue that I get is when gaming (and using Video Editing software - PC BSOD's when rendering a video from After Effects CC for example) is that after about 20 - 25 min of running the game the PC will just crash and I'll get a IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error and the PC will restart. This happens every time regardless of the game played or settings.
My PC temps are pretty normal even under stress.. max the CPU goes to is around 68 and the GPU around the same.
- Reinstall Windows - Use only the SSD - Use only the HDD (Bought new HDD) - Switch out the RAM Sticks w/ New Ones - Run MemTest and other software (everything came back clean) - Yesterday I installed the new GPU, Reinstalled Windows, Updated all Drives and Windows Updates and the issue is still present.
