viewing pictures in the file folders by Jason L
In XP when you open a folder of pictures you can see the image in the file folder with previewing, I can not seem to get it to do that in Vista, is there a way to set properties to view the picture in the folder before opening?

Right click to open folder in a new window Customize indi folder o by Christina
Not sure what happened, but I used to be able to right click on a folder from inside a folder and it would open in a new window/had the option to open in new folder. I know how to set the folders to each open in a new window, however I don't want this to be the case for each folder. Is there a way to customize this folder by folder? Thanks Christina

offline files and NAS by Derrick Michelson
I have a user running Vista that is unable to use synchronize files. The documents are stored on a NAS (Intel SS4000-E), and none of the documents are able to sync. I know the synchronization has changed with Vista, but has anyone had any luck synchronizing to a NAS device? Thanks in advance

Offline folders with SBS2003 by Alex
In the server (SBS 2003) I have a folder with several sub-folders and hundreds of files, The entire folder is set to be available offline as they are all the sub-folders and files. The problem is that some of these files are not available when I go offline. What is weird is that in Windows Explorer all the files, including the ones that are not available, are marked with the green round logo with...

Inconsistent Search Results by Julian
Any ideas what's wrong or how to fix it? I do a search from the Start button - up come all the files I would expect to find the keyword in (in indexed locations), including MS Word 2002 docs (and I note, in the words docs inside ZIP files... I'm sure indexing didn't work like that before!) Use Search from the Start menu and I get the same (good) results. But - open a folder which contains...

Protection of folders by ThosRTanner
Not sure this is the correct newsgroup, but hopefully... I have a slight issue on my vista PC with the hard disk - but I am a bit short of space on the C drive and have started installing stuff on the D drive. I created a "Program Files" folder on the D drive to be tidy and started installing stuff in there. However, the protection on this folder isn't the same as the "Program Files" on the...

Noticed this a few times by Mark
I'm running Vista Premium. A few times I've noticed that when deleting files (select all, delete) not all the files are deleted so it needs a second bite to capture them all. I've also noticed the same when moving files. Only seems to be a problem if deleting/moving large numbers. Mark

I can't empty my recycle bin by Microsoft Beta
Not sure this is the right group to post this in so apologies if not. I am not able to empty my recycle bin completely. If I open it to view the files, I am able to manually delete all but 1 file. The file that won't delete is (was) a recorded tv capture and I've also tried restoring that file but am not able to do that as well. Clicking Properties tells me the file is 729MB and I'm not able to...

How to restore copy defaults? by QueenApril
I somehow lost the option to choose whether to overwrite, save or create a duplicate file when copying. I.E. There is already a file named Testfile. Do you want to replace that file with the new file, keep the old file, or keep both (rename to Testfile(2). I know this is a simplified version of what it asks, but you get the idea. I'm sure I clicked somewhere to "apply this option...

Vista vs Kaspersky by occam
I have installed and running Kaspersky Anti-virus 7.0 on my portable (Windows Vista Business). Kaspersky thinks it is protecting my pc. ('Computer protection status' says so.) However I have the red warning shield (red cross)saying that Kaspersky has been turned off. When I go to 'Windows security centre' and click 'Turn on now', I get the usual two options ('Yes, I trust...' , 'No,i would...

Cannot delete Java SE Development Kit from Vista by Wayne
Hello, I need to reinstall the JDK but the installer insists the development kit is still installed, when I agree to re-installing it just stays in an endless loop of telling me it is already installed and do I want to reinstall. I have physically deleted all the java directories and last night paid 40 bucks for a registry cleaner that has made no difference. When I try to delete using the...

Hi Everyone, I have several thousand MP3's and recently got a Zune. Now I'm trying to organize my MP3's in a way that Zune likes. However there are some files that I cannot change the attributes. When I attempt to edit the "Album" and "Artist" details I get the following message. The box is titled "Apply Properties File". The message box states:"An unexpected error is preventing the...

Vista Documents folder redirected by Jo Himself
Good afternoon I have deployed Vista to our workstations and set the folder redirection in the mandatory profile. The "Documents" folder redirects to the fileserver as does "Music", "Videos" etc. This functions perfectly from the end user perspective but when I log on to the fileserver and look at the "users" folder all I can see are folders called "Documents". The folders used to be named...
