The first time I tried to download a word document from an email, a message came up asking how I wanted to download documents and I accidentally chose to open it in Internet Explorer. Now every time I try to download a word document from emails of any source (college site, work site, personal email) I get a message that Internet Explorer is not responding and the email never downloads.
I don't want to download the the files into Internet Explorer (even if that did work). I often need to edit these documents or work as a collaborative group on online assignments. Now I cannot even access them
I have 8.1 I open Gmail. there I open a PDF doc. Pr a pic. Or a Microsoft word doc. I see the doc. On the bottom of my tablet screen I see the option of open with... or download. and some triangle thing. it offers apps to open with (none ate adobe or Ms word). none are the adobe I have. It wants me to go to the store. when I tap download nothing happens. when I hit the triangle. It wants me to go to the store again.
I'm so fed up with Adobe Acrobat -- why do I need to install 2GB of software to do simple .doc to .pdf conversions. So I'm curious, is there a free, or relatively inexpensive solution to do the following?
1. Convert Word documents into PDF. 2. Convert web pages into PDF from a web browser.
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.
I am rather enjoying the new Mail feature in 8.1 and it is "mostly" effortless to have all emails collectively in the one app. Problem I am having is I do sometimes need to send an email as an attachment to a web based submission form and it requires of course that I have the file/email saved locally so I can browse to it and attach.
I am completely stymied as to how to do this as there is no way to save locally (other than then the backup path in AppData which the App already does) just certain emails I would prefer to save them as either a .txt or .html or even just a plain old .docx file in My Documents folder, so I can then send it in on in a format preferable by the recipient I am sending to.
Mail App - Backup Email Messages in Windows 8
And while it makes sense, I still see no way to save a particular email other than as an .eml. Why is there not a simple feature such as save or save as within the Mail App itself?
I am looking to download an ISO of Windows 8.1 so that, in the future, I do not have to go through the process of first installing Windows 8.0 and then downloading Windows 8.1 and installing it.
I have found pages on the web dated around April 2014 that describe a process that involves beginning the download for Windows 8.0 ISO, canceling the download after it starts, and then attempting to download Windows 8.1. However, it appears that Microsoft has nullified this trick by since requiring that you put in your Windows 8.1 key when attempting to download the Windows 8.1 ISO.
I recently bought a new laptop with Windows 8 installed. I had no trouble downloading an .exe program file previously, but now nothing happens when I try to run the program. I've run another fix mentioned on this forum, and after rebooting, I get the same results.
Due to my Windows XP ceased to being supported I have bought a new HP Pavilion 500-245ea desktop, intel core i5,6gb ram 2 TB Hard drive., with Windows 8.1 OS installed
I have tried and tried to send and receive emails with Outlook.com but I cannot get it to work, I have asked my 20 years old Grandson to have a go as well but without success, Outlook is now blocking every thing we try.
every thing else seems to be working fine and of course so much faster than my old computer.
After suffering a Windows 8.1 boot failure, and despite manyattempts at recovery, I finally had to reinstall my WIN 8 Boot disk, then usethe free update download to reinstall WIN 8.1.Since getting the PC up and running again. I have connectedthe original disk via a USB port, and tested it with cHkdsk and anti virus software, which both give it a clear bill ofhealth. And I can see all the original folders.Unfortunately due to the change of boot disk, I have lost mypast two months Windows Live emails. Is there any way I can recover them fromthe original Disk ?
a friend just asked me if he will get the standard retail ISO of Windows 8.1 with Update if uses his Windows 8.1 product key to start the "Upgrade with product key only".
And I didn't know what to answer him, I'm pretty sure you get a standard image that you can use not only to upgrade but to install Windows anew doing that; but I don't know if it'll be the one with spring's update.
I've had windows 8 . The most serious issue is my pop email. I had a Comcast email forever. It's attached to all my accounts - medical, business etc etc. Windows 8 doesn't work with pop emails so I bought and installed office 10 to use Microsoft outlook. I am missing at a least of half my emails. Important emails. I have spent countless hours troubleshooting with Dell, Microsoft.
I just got my hard drive back. I bought the computer in Sept. and the HD went. So it had to go to California. When I got the computer back the time was California time. I clicked on the time in the right hand corner and changed it to Eastern Standard time. It is still accurate in the right hand corner but people are saying my emails times are all wrong. They are receiving them before I've written them. And... to increase the mystery everyone's emails are coming to me with the wrong times. What could be wrong? Is it possible California time is still active somewhere else on the computer?
I'm using Outlook Mail. I went to my mail on roadrunner and the times are accurate so the problem is somewhere on my computer.
Windows 8 problems. How to easily and quickly download selected photos from my camera. When I tried it was taking forever as the system seemed to be going through opening every single photo on my camera and I gave up waiting. I just want to be able to download the latest ones not all of the ones I have on my camera.
It's been a while since I have this ("driver_irql_not_less_or_equal, ndis.sys or netio.sys") error and it occurs whenever I try to download a file with uTorrent and a few times while downloading with IDM, I hope that my PC is not dead.
So, I've just bought a new laptop for university work and it came with Windows 8 pre-installed.
First thing I did when I booted the laptop up was install Microsoft Word and Norton Security, all fine so far!
And then it comes to downloading iTunes, latest Adobe Flashplayer/PDF reader etc and everytime it will get close to finishing. Around 98% or so, before stopping and saying 'The file download was interrupted'. So I press resume download and it comes up with another error message of 'The signature is invalid or corrupt'. I literally can't download a thing?
Also, I can't play youtube videos either. All I get is the 'buffering' circle, a black screen and a greyed out play button!
have windows 8 pre installed on my hp laptop, i downloaded linux ubuntu but whenever i try and run ubuntu i keep getting the same error message: oxc000007b. I tried deleting it so that i could reinstall the software and then was given another error message which was: ox80004002.
I keep getting BSOD when I start downloading any torrent, I have tried utorrent and bittorrent clients. It started to happen recently after I found my bro had downloaded some keygens. Antivirus and AntiMalware programs picked nothing.
I have a POP3 Email address (Tiscali). i have it set up on "Outlook" I can send and receive Emails ok but the check for new incoming ones is currently every 30 minutes. I should be able to change that to what I want (every 2 minutes).
I cannot find how to do it - despite Goggling for a solution. Some solutions were given but the options were not visible on my machine.
Whenever I try to sync up my AOL account through the Mail app, it says that my email address "is unavailable". I try removing the account and re-adding it, all of my emails get re-synched, and then...nothing. Can't send emails, can't receive new emails. I tried checking and unchecking "sync mail", nada.
