Vista (SP1) loses the search index by akita
Since a few days Vista inexplicably loses my search index – and I have no idea what causes this! This is soooooooooo annoying!! Every time I want the index to help me search for files, I find it has reverted to its default options (which do not include my folders), and I need to again manually add the folders that I want in the index. This causes Vista to rebuild its search index, taking...

Getting the Gadgets sidebar back. by TDINO34
I recently was looking at my desktop when I noticed that I no longer had on the "Gadgets" sidebar. I found it useful and i tried to see if I could get it back. I'm not quite sure what to do to regain access to this feature. Maybe I just am looking in all the wrong places?

:-( sp1 removes Instant Search in start menu by isthis
I am REALLY mad to read (winsupersite.com) that Vista Service Pack 1 R E M O V E S the instant search field from the start menu! :-( I use the instant search often, finding it the easiest way find a single file that i'm not certain where lies. And now MS will punish me as a customer by withdrawing one of the useful features of vista (instead of the many useless ones) just because Google...

Vista Search Function by tonypolo27
Vista search has presets for pictures, e-mail, documents, music and other. How can I set it to find all video clips regardless of extension without doing a separate search for each extension?

Using SyncCenter to sync with two PC's and Thumbdrives.. by Nathaniel
On the Vista Features website, it states "The new Sync Center is a convenient central location in Windows Vista from which you can manage data synchronization between PCs, between PCs and servers, and between PCs and devices. The importance of this capability grows all the time as the range of computers, devices, locations, and data sources has exploded." Now, how do I go amongst this? I...

Folder opening options by MJJ
I have tried to set my folders to open separately rather than one folder replacing another because I want to have two or more open at once. However, although I have on numerous occasions tried to change the settings, Vista seems to ignore this and I can only have one folder open at a time. Has anyone else found this?

Scrolling problems in Explorer by Anneli
I have a problem when trying to scroll down in Explorer through the different files. It is possible to scroll down but as soon as I release the bar or stop scrolling with the scroll wheel the window returns immediately to the top view. I have never experienced this before and thought that it could be the mouse but the same things happened when the mouse was changed. This is the first...

Keyboard to Computer....HELLO by [email protected]
Recently I have noticed when typing via the keyboard which came with the HP Desktop PC, the apparent response was very slow to missing letters if and when I typed too fast. At first I only noticed it via my Yahoo email, but then that's generally the basic place one types. When typing, it's like I had to hit the keys much harder, and much slower for them to respond! This is really frustrating, and...

I downloaded a file from an email. I did not save it, I just opened it and commenced to working on the file. I then saved it using the save icon. I wasn't promted to "save as", so I assumed it went to a temporary location as files did in previous version. (I am working in Vista.) Well when I searched for the file, it was nowhere to be found. I have tried everything I could think of,...

Start menu doesn't work by Markdentoffe
Hi, I've got 2 problems with my start menu. The first is that my user start menu isn't displayed, only the all users start menu is there. Very annoying. Secondly, the start menu doesn't work anymore at all. I can't expand subfolders and when I click a shortcut nothing happens, except the start menu closes.

Default programs & File associations by Danneman
G'day I've cocked up and forgot to untick the box "always use" when I was viewing a file with notepad. Now there seems to be no way of removing that file association (like setting it to unknown application) Notepad doesn't come up in the default programs for some reason, and I assume it has to be registered for that to happen. I don't know why it's not registered by default since it's, to my
