Managing Recent Items by Dudi
Hello, I use Vista Home Basic. Whenever I use Recent Items (under Start selection) for re-running previous documents, I always get old items sorted out by 'abc' order. I tried to get into recent folder and sort the folder content out differently but it changed nothing at Resent Items (on Start option). Is there any way to sort out the listed items by their creation/modification

Explorer crashes ? by Bob Johnston
Vista Ultimate - Recently I have started having a problem with explorer. When I right click a file to copy, explorer sometimes crashes back to the desktop. After two or three tries it will sometimes work, sometimes not. A drag and drop over 2 windows always works so it is not the file itself.

Vista search won't open individual emails by Julie In Brooklyn
First off, I am NOT MS's biggest fan by a long shot. However, under XP I installed Windows Desktop Search, and I really really like it. I could search all of my outlook 2003 email, delete emails, move emails etc etc. Now I have a new laptop with vista on it. I have installed Outlook 2003, and allowed the indexer to run over night. When I use search to search for emails, I can see the email...

Does anyone out there know how to lock desktop icons in place? Every time I restart my computer my icons are all out of order. I have made sure that the choices for Auto Arrange and Align to Grid are unchecked.

ViSo why isn't this a "proper question" ?? ViVista appearently has a problem deleting a large number of files, and Vithe so called "solution" of using "remove directory" offcourse is NOT a Visolution at all, that's just avoiding the subject. ViThat's like when you're having problems playing mp3-files on Vista, Visaying "Then don't play mp3-files on Vista". Problem solved.... ViYou have...

I want to automatically name folders ? by mimsriggers
Hi, can any one help me to automatically name new folders. I make folders for inventory items. I name them using the date and time. It's quite time consuming to have to look at the clock each time and type the info into the new folder naming box. In answer, I'd like to be able to press a button or two and have a folder appear with its name being the date and time. Thanks in advance Bill --

Hello, When I copy or delete a large number of files (1000) in Vista32, the explorer.exe process grows to more than 1.5GB in size, and then my computer stops responding. I think there is a memory leak in Windows Explorer? And how can I copy, move or delete large numbers of files?
