Venue Pro 11 Win 8.1 Duplicate Folders?

Dec 21, 2013

This is a new tablet and I am just getting used to Windows 8.1 .

I messed up when I moved folders from being stored in c: to d:.

I now have duplicate folders for pictures, video's etc in Drive D:

How do I correct this ? Can I delete all the folders in D and start again? ( this is a new computer and there is no content in any of these folders)

I also notice that in file explorer I have three main folders with almost the same subfolder structure . The folders are:

a) Myname ( with a picture icon) . Subfolders : Tablet name > documents, music etc

b) Myname: Subfolders : contacts, desktop,favorites, skydrive etc

c) This PC : subfolders: documents, downloads , folders that contain places I connected to through my network) , . C:/, D:/ , libraries etc

Why so many duplicates ? How can I clean this up so there is only the This PC ( I believe this was the original Folder before I messed around ) .

Dell Venue Pro 8 - Set Sleep Mode To Never On Power Management Option?

Mar 9, 2014

I recently purchased a DVP8 and I love this thing. Problem is, it suffers from wifi issues in that once it goes to sleep, the wifi automatically goes to "limited" and I need to retoggle the wifi setting to get it connected. I've tried all kinds of fixes - uninstall windows updates and reinstalling drivers, but to no avail.

So I basically said screw it, and set "sleep mode" to never on the power management option, and no more wifi issues. Seems like the wifi doesn't reactive properly when coming out to sleep mode. My question is - will this damage the tablet in the long run? In terms of battery life, I would think the main factor is the screen on time. I can just turn the screen off with a tap of the power button. Is there really that big of a difference?

Remove Duplicate Files?

Jun 8, 2014

I copied and pasted a bunch of files into the same folder.

Now there is a lot of redundancy and too many files to be removed one by one.

There are all files with a "- Copy" in front of their original name.

How do I remove these files?

System Unresponsive When Turning Off One Monitor In Duplicate Configuration

May 19, 2012

I've installed Windows 8 on an xtreemer ultra media center. It's connected to a projector and a touch screen monitor in duplicate screen mode. Sometimes I would like to keep projector off and only use monitor.

Problem is when I turn off the projector. You hear the sound that windows detects a disconnected device. The image changes to a clean desktop (used to be lock screen, but I disabled that). And system becomes unresponsive. No cursor can be found. No metro interface. Microsoft+p is not displaying. Tried everything I can think of.

Network / Sharing :: Can Delete Skydrive Duplicate Files In Laptop

Jun 29, 2013

I use SkyDrive as my cloud storage and have 5GB of files in it.

But I want it to be IN THE CLOUD and hidden, not accesible to everyone using my laptop and not duplicate copies of the files in my hard disk (actually triplicate copies).

For example, let's say my 3GB music collection. I keep a copy in my hard disk within "My Music", a copy in the cloud in Skydrive, but now I have a third copy in my hard disk within the Skydrive folder, which I didn't want and I wasn't asked about.

Microsoft assumed I want this third copy for some reason and downloaded everything automatically to this Skydrive folder. Great.

So, the first thing I do is uninstalling Skydrive, if I want to upload something I do it via browser, but the folder and copy of my files is still there.

My question is, can I delete those files, my music collection and so on without deleting at the same time the copy in the cloud? I mean, if I delete them here they will be deleted in the cloud too?

Audio :: Duplicate Sound Device Entries In Volume Mixer

Jan 1, 2014

Basically I have an ASus ux301la (zenbook infinity) and i noticed that after installing Displaylinks software (port replicator software) my default sound device was called (USB AUDIO) and that my Realtek sound device kind of went missing (no sound devices on the playback tab in the sound settings). I had no backups at teh time as its a new laptop and i really dont want to re-install 8.1 from scratch as it took me over a day to configure this thing to my personal config.

So I uninstalled the diplaylink software and uninstalled/reinstalled the sound drivers from the asus site and each time i did so it would create a new sound entry, hence all teh duplicates. Now i still have a problem because although sound works, i have to manually select the correct playback device in VLC player and I cannot see any sound devices in the playback tab on SOUND settings.

Apps / Software :: ICloud Creating Duplicate Bookmarks - Due To Win 8.1 Sync?

Jul 28, 2014

I am running iCloud on multiple PC's. Everything was fine until I had it running on two 8.1 PC's, then I started having problems.

In total, iCloud was running on one Win 7 Pro PC and two Windows 8.1 PC's. My theory is that the two Windows 8.1 PC's were syncing via iCloud and Skydrive (or Onedrive) which is set up by default. But they were able to read each other's settings okay. But Win 7 doesn't have the same sync settings, so the bookmarks were being written in 8.1 and then multiplying in Win 7.

I'm not sure, but this is my theory. Running on all Win 7 is okay. Running on all Win 8.1 seems okay. But combining the two OS's with iCloud seems to cause some problems.

Cannot Boot Toshiba Laptop Windows 8.1 / Created Duplicate EFI Partition

Dec 25, 2013

I can not boot my Toshiba laptop Windows 8.1 computer after I was attempting to resize partitions. I got in over my head. Now I'm stuck and cannot boot.

I believe the problem is I somehow created a second copy of my EFI partition. Now I have two "system" partitions of the same size.

Cannot boot, but got a command prompt. Ran "bcdedit" and got:

"The boot configuration data store could not be opened.The requested system device cannot be identified due to multiple indistinguishable devices potentially matching the identification criteria."

Other things I uncovered:

Diskpart> list partition
Partition 1 System
Partition 2 System
Partition 3 Reserved
Partition 4 Primary
Partition 5 Recovery
Partition 6 Recovery

(note both partitons 1 & 2 say "System" for type.)

Diskpart> Select Partition 1detail partition * Volume 2 System NTFS Partition 352 MB Healthy Hidden
Diskpart> Select Partition 2detail partition * Volume 3 FAT32 Partition 352 MB Healthy Hidden

I conclude that Partition 1 equates to Volume 2, Partition 2 to Volume 3. However there is no longer a "System" label on Part 2/Vol 3 once drilled down to details. Also its FAT32.

I am hoping/praying that I could "delete" one of the duplicate partitions. But scared to make any such move. Not sure where to go from here.

Network / Sharing :: Skydrive No Longer Syncing - Makes Duplicate Files

Oct 22, 2013

Before installing Windows 8.1 anything that I put into my Skydrive folder (I had the desktop app) were automatically synced to as well as my Android phone app, and anything I uploaded from my phone app were synced to and were automatically downloaded to my Skydrive folder. Now my phone app and still work fine, but the Skydrive folder does not. That is, nothing gets downloaded to my Skydrive folder and nothing gets uploaded to from it.

I've tried different settings for it, I've tried offline only, online only, I've toggled settings in the Settings app, and nothing.

Something else that happens is that now there are duplicates of all of the files in the My Documents folder. Say that my PC is named Smith-PC. Now, for example, there is a file called Random Document.docx and Random Document-Smith-PC.docx. And this is for every single file in the My Documents folder. Furthermore, only the version with the Smith-PC in the name works. When I open the normally named file, I get an error:

"An unexpected error is keeping you from copying the file. If you continue to receive this error, you can use the error code to search for solution of this problem. Error 0x80070490: Element not found."

This is really annoying and now I have duplicates of all of my documents, half of which won't open and the other half which are named wrong with Smith-PC at the end of all of them.

Network / Sharing :: Windows 8.1 Laptop Showing Duplicate Network Connections To Smart TV

May 6, 2014

My 8.1 laptop shows multiple network connections to my Samsung Smart TV --- One as "media connections" and 3 as "other connections". Both devices are on a simple wireless network using Linksys WRT54GS.

Under the "Network" page, most of the "Properties" of the TV connections are the same except for "Serial Number" and "Unique Identifier". Did I do something wrong when setting things up? Are these extra connections harmful? Should I delete some? How?

Network / Sharing :: How To Add More Sharing Folders / Stream More Folders To PS3

Jul 26, 2014

For a couple weeks I have been streaming shows to my ps3 from my computer. On my PS3 I have access to four folders, Videos, Music, Pictures, and Playlists, the first three of which I can locate on my computer. When I want to watch a video, I simply copy it into the Videos folder on my computer, then stream from there.

Now I'd like to stream music, my problem is that my music isn't in my Music folder, I have it in a separate folder that doesn't show up on my PS3. Copying over all my music would take time, and I'd also have to redo my WMP playlists. I have tried adding this folder to my shared folder list, and to my Music library, but neither of these things made a difference.

I've spent a couple hours now trying to figure this out, but I can't seem to find anything on google that relates to my specific problem, but there is absolutely no way I'm the first person who's ever wanted to access folder's other than the 4 I've mentioned.

How To Rename System Folders

Apr 24, 2013

Let's say I would like to have one place with only the following folders:


If I click on my username I get folders for My Photos, My Music etc... I would like to rename those folders so that they -stay- renamed. When I renamed the 'Downloads'-folder to 'Temp' it stayed renamed for about 30 minutes and then for some reason it switched its name back to 'Downloads'.

Another thing: As stated above i would like to have -only- the folders of my choosing within the "Username"-folder. But then what can I do about the 'AppData'-folder which is also within the 'Username'-folder?

Win 8.1 - Moving RAR Folders To Another Folder

Aug 11, 2014

I am trying to move a rar folder to MyGames folder and it's having none of it.. It just seems to be my MyGames folder and no other folders on my PC.

I am currently using Windows 8.1 is there a problem or a glitch with this? I currently have McAfee installed could this be apart of moving folders, copying folders to another folder?

I have checked all my permissions etc in the MyGames folder and they seem to be fine. I am trying to move folder to my Farming Simulator 2013 folder and it's not doing anything not even popping up with any kind of warning why my folder isn't copying, pasting correctly.

Choose Own Pictures Folders?

Mar 23, 2014

The Pictures Library in the Photos app/tile in Windows 8 doesn't offer me the option to choose my own pictures folders as it does my video ones. It only offers me to create a folder (I don't know where) or to import pictures from a camera or a cell phone, I suppose.

Is there any way for me to pick my own pictures folders instead of having to move my pictures into a Windows default folder only to have to move them again (or lose them)

Pin Files And Folders To Taskbar

Jan 10, 2013

I've found a way to pin any FILE or any FOLDER to the Taskbar (as well as to the Start Screen) with no registry editing, no software, no scripts, or anything.

Just create a shortcut that leads to the file or folder, NOT directly, but indirectly by way of File Explorer -- which is a program and can be pinned anywhere. Taskbar - Pin or Unpin a Folder - Windows 7 Forums

Then give the shortcut a name, which may be the same as the file's name.

The shortcut will have a File Explorer icon, but you can right-click it, select "Properties" and change the icon (recommended -- if you put several of them on your taskbar, you won't want them all to look the same.)

Then right-click it again and select "Pin to Start" or "Pin to Taskbar." Afterwards you can delete it from the Desktop.

This works with .txt (Notepad) files too. And with folders. If you have Adobe Reader, it works with .pdf files.

It also works with shortcuts to CLSID's (see Brink's tutorial on "Shell Commands"), such as

%WinDir%explorer.exe shell:::{3080f90e-d7ad-11d9-bd98-0000947b0257}

which creates the "Switcher" (the sticky all-active-apps view that you can navigate with the arrow and Enter keys).
