Different Characters In File Properties Instead Of Numbers

Feb 1, 2014

I am using a Dell laptop with Windows 8 Home. The file Properties show strange symbol-type characters where there should be numbers etc. See Screenshot...

It's been like this for a while and I have probably installed half a dozen programs etc. so I don't know what did it. I don't want to upgrade to v.8.1 as it took me ages to get a 3rd party Start button set up and 8.1 over-writes it I rolled back to a previous image of v.8.0 (True Image not System Restore).

Unable To Enter Numbers In Address Bar?

Dec 29, 2012

I recently upgraded from windows 7 to windows 8 pro. The install went well. During the post install I found that I could not use the numeric keys to enter numbers into my browser address bar. I tried all three browsers, Firefox, IE 10, and chrome. I tried a second keyboard with the same results. I verified that the system worked correctly at the OS level by entering numbers and special characters into notepad. There are several other places that the problem is present.

When I enter my password to get into Comcast webmail and when I enter a password containing either a number or special character in a prompt for accessing one of my network devices. Any problems with keyboard control after upgrading to win 8?

Setup Installation :: Windows 8.1 64bit - How To Swap Monitor Identity Numbers

Sep 15, 2014

I have two monitors and when I boot up my computer the UEFI splash screen appears on my smaller second monitor, rather than on the main monitor where I want it, but the login screen appears on the main monitor. As I normally only switch the second monitor on when I want to put something on it to avoid obscuring what is on my main monitor this is rather irritating.

I am assuming that the reason for this problem is that my main monitor has an identity number 2 and the secondary monitor is numbered 1.

My setup is :-
Windows 8.1, 64 bit;
Asus RAIDR Express PCIe SSD;
Asus GT630-SL-2GD3-L GPU;
Asus SABERTOOTH Z97 MARK 1 Motherboard, BIOS version 0602;
Processor Intel i7-4770S @3.1 GHz;
Kingston Technology XMP Beast Series 32GB 2400MHz DDR3 Memory.

Monitors :-
iiyama Prolite XB2776QS, (27 inch);
Dell u2412m, (24 inch).

I have tried uninstalling the drivers for the Dell monitor and rebooting the computer but it still comes back with an identity number of 1. There is nothing in the Nvidia control centre to enable me to swap the numbers. Is there any way of swapping the identity numbers over?

The iiyama is connected from the DVI port to the DVI port on the graphics card, the Dell connects from a DVI port to the HDMI port on the graphics card.

How To Find Files With Same First 10 Characters In Name

Oct 24, 2013

I have a lot of files who are stored into folders (~ 2-3K worth of folders with 2-20 files in each folder) and I need to search in each one to see if there are any files that are similar in name. None will be exactly the same so I need to only compare the first 10 characters and if there are 2 files that have the same characters, then I need to have them displayed so I can decide if I should delete one. The problem with commercial duplicate detectors is they match the entire name or the CRC of a file which in this case will be different.

Dell :: Using ASCII Characters In Win 8?

Apr 30, 2014

I like to use a few ASCII characters in emails and letters. Like registered trade mark or cent symbol, etc. Sometimes even the happy face. Using Win XP I would use the Alt key plus a number. Now when I do that, nothing happens. How do I access these characters using Win 8.1?

Windows 8 - How To Search Within Text Files For Special Characters

Jun 13, 2014

Windows 8 search function ...

I have a bunch of text files and I need to search for the following string for example within the files:

now()

What I need to do to search for this string?

It seems like Windows 8 ignores just about all non-alphanumeric characters when searching.

If I can't search within files for a simple string like the above I'm screwed!

Windows 8 64-bit Computer - Some Of Characters On Special Fonts (TTF) Do Not Show

Sep 5, 2013

I have a number of special fonts (all are .ttf) that I installed, and some that came with software for use with the programs. All of these fonts worked fine when installed on my Windows 7 64-bit computer.

I have installed all of these fonts on my Windows 8 64-bit computer, and some of the characters on the fonts do not show. Windows has substituted other characters in place of these.

Yet when I open the font in a third party program like Font Creator, all of the characters on the font appear true.

Is there a setting in Windows 8 that I need to adjust so the characters will show as they are supposed to?

How To Get To Properties Of A Shortcut In Win 8

May 3, 2013

But I'm afraid there is not a setting in Windows 8 to get this done. Okay, then I handle the programs seperately! Until Windows 8 I could always rightclick a shortcut, then get "Properties", then I chose "Maximized". But to my unpleasant surprise I only get the latest documents (Which is very handy indeed!), and a choice to "Loosen the program of the taskbar".

No Navigation Tab On Taskbar Properties

Nov 23, 2013

I cannot seem to get the "taskbar and navigation properties" pane, only the "taskbar properties" pane. I am running as administrator and have upgraded from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 on a new laptap that I have just purchased, but am still having trouble getting the "taskbar and navigation properties" when I right click the taskbar.

The "taskbar properties" only gives me three tabs ie. taskbar, jump lists and properties, but I need to access the navigation tab on the "taskbar and navigation properties" pane.

My Computer / Properties Causes Desktop To Reload

Just as it says, if I right click on "Properties" in My Computer and try to pull up the System Information sheet, the whole desktop shuts down and then re-opens.

Win 8 64bit - Can't Edit MP3 Details In Properties

Aug 28, 2013

My previous OS was Windows 7 64-bit. I used rip my favorite music tracks and was able to edit the details in the Details tab of the Properties window after right-clicking on the file name. The system hardware is the same. OS is now Windows 8 64-bit. But when I open the mp3 file's property window and go to the details tab, I get fewer options in detail and I CANNOT edit any one of them. I have run sfc - no problem. I have opened the Explorer as Administrator and still the same issue. Here's the screen capture:

I am the sole user of the desktop PC. And that I have another PC at another place with same configuration also running Win 8 64-bit. On that PC for the same file I see more details on the screen and I can edit the fields. I might post the capture from that PC later when I go there. I also ran the mp3Tag to get over the possible issue with ID3 tags.

Properties Option In Menus Not Work Normally?

Jan 17, 2014

First of all I want to say that this is not much big of a deal to me but still annoying nonetheless. I noticed that in some scenarios, for some reason, the "Properties" option in the rightclick menu of a file doesn't do anything when clicked on. You'd expect that a properties box of the concerning file would show up but nothing is happening. So far I noticed this in the following 2 scenarios:

1. When selecting multiple files in the Recycle Bin at once and then right click and choose Properties. Selecting only one file in the recycle bin and clicking Properties does work normally.
2. When right clicking on a picture that is shown with Windows Photo Viewer and then choosing Properties.

Are these bugs that Microsoft developers might have missed or is my PC at fault here? I'm running Windows 8.1 Pro x64 with Medica Center.

Unable To Edit MP3 Properties In Windows 8

Oct 29, 2013

I have just recently acquired a brand new laptop running Windows 8, and I'm experiencing an issue with editing the details of MP3 files. I can right-click any MP3 to open its properties and access the Details tab, but when I click on the fields for the different tags, nothing happens.

I don't recall ever having this issue on my previous laptop with Windows Vista, so I'm at loss trying to understand what is going on here. I'm not very tech savvy about the subject of permissions and accessibility, but it doesn't really seem to be related to that. The files are listed under my local user directory.

All Files Show Read Only In Properties - Cannot Change

Jan 6, 2013

Virtually every file shows read only when I right click on it and choose properties. In uncheck read only, then click apply and choose applies to all subfolders and files. Windows appears to change the properties (a window opens up and a green progress bar fills). But if I click OK and close properties, when I look at properties again, they are shown as read only again.

This happens both when I am logged in under my user name, as well as if I log in as administrator.

The only difficulty it's created so far was when attempting ti embed a cover art JPG into an MP3 file in my music library.

Hardware Drivers :: How To Get PIM To Show Up In Bluetooth Properties

Sep 28, 2013

I am trying to import my contacts to the phone, which I gather can be done with a bluetooth connection via some sort of PIM that the bluetooth software recognizes. For the life of me I can't find any explicit reference to any particular PIM software that the Windows 8 bluetooth Properties dialog recognizes. Or, have I misunderstood the capabilities here? Do I have to buy and install Outlook?

I am unfortunately using Thunderbird as email & contact manager, but I've exported my contacts via .csv in the past so If I can find the appropriately compatible PIM for Windows 8 Bluetooth I think I can muddle through.
