File Won't Delete by Stuart
I had a 12Gb file that had been copied to my Vista x64 machine across the network. UAC was off yet I was still unable to delete or move it, or even view its properties! Eventually I had to boot into safe mode with command prompt and use CACLS.exe to give myself permission to delete my own file from my own PC. Is this "working as intended"? Its a real PITA!

Metadata in external file? Avi and .mp4 files by VistaLover393
Is it possible to put tags into avi and .mp4 files? I don't think it is, Adobe bridge won't let me attach keywords to these filetypes. Also, if you cant add metadata to some file types, is there an option in vista to use an external file (like picasa uses) for one folder..? Thanks

Regedit/Explorer folder tree by Jeff
Hi, Is it just me, or didn't the folder tree in regedit expand just by clicking on a folder, before RTM? It was like it autoscrolled; now you have to use the bottom scrollbar when you expand the folder tree? I swear it did it "automatic"-like; before RTM, but now you have to use the bottom scrollbar. Same goes with any folder tree using explorer. Any confirmation that this little convenience...

Searching within non-indexed files. by auser
No matter what options I select, I can't seem to get vista to search within non-indexed files. I have "always search file names and contents" checked and I am searching "Everywhere". But vista will not show me files that contain my keyword unless the file has been indexed.

Create Zip-Folder with password? by Tommi
Dear colleagues, I wonder how to create a compressed zip-file with a password in Windows Vista without any 3rd party software. In Win-XP we had a menu item in the file menu inside the explorer window but I miss this menu command in Vista's explorer. I do not see such a command in the organize menu. Any help? Thank you.

Searching email in Exchange by S. Alter
Using Windows Desktop Search on XP allowed me to index all my email accounts from our corporate Exchange (2003) server and (it then stored the index localy). Using Vista Search, this does not seem to be the case. Using 'Indexing Options' -- Modify -- Microsoft Office Outlook, I only see my primary email address (i don't see any of my other accounts) and it is grayed out. When I hover with...

Search - Windows Mail not Office 2007 Outlook indexed by stephen
Hi there. Now that Vista and Office 2007 have been RTM'd, I have installed Windows Vista and then opened Windows Mail to check a separate issue on a Vista Newsgroup. I then installed Office 2007 and connected to our company Exchange Server. Unfortunately I now find that Vista Search only finds indexed Windows Mail items and not any Office 2007 Outlook items.

How to register file types for Explorer Preview Pane? by Portman
I like the idea of the integrated Preview Pane. It's great for text files, so that you don't need to open Notepad to read every file in a directory. I would like to "register" many other file types with the same preview handler. For instance, *.sql, *.cs, *.aspx .... however, I can't for the life of me figure out how I can associate extensions with preview handlers in Vista. Anyone know how?

Hello I'm using the Save As Dialog in my .NET application running on Vista. When i use this dialog to create a new folder and save my file to it, the application knows where this file is. However, if I use the Window's Explorer window to then try and view this new folder, it doesn't show up! Why is this? This seems like a bug in Vista....

"del /s foo*" doesn't work by Roof Fiddler
What's the command-line command to recursively delete all files and directories with names beginning with "foo"? "del /s foo*" doesn't work. Doing it using the GUI, with Start/Search and searching for "name:foo" and then selecting all and choosing "delete", doesn't work, because I have hundreds of such directories, and for each one Vista will grind away on my disk for a couple minutes and...
