Taming or understanding Vista file manager by Dr. DOS
Vista Home Premium. I have a file, call it fred.txt. I want to locate it. I start at the top of the file hierarchy (harddrive c: (computer\harddrive C (not desktop)). As I type into the search window, winexplorer churns away and produces a "yellow pages" full of files, but not fred.txt. I know fred exists. In fact, as a test (after I laboriously find it another way), I can start the search...

Explorer doesn't show thumbnails on networked folder by iganpo
I keep all my photos on a networked computer. On my Windows Vista Home Premium computer, I can't get Explorer to display the thumbnails for any picture. It only displays a generic image icon. If I open a folder on the local hard drive, it shows the previews fine. I've made sure that to uncheck "Always show icons, never thumbnails" in Folder Options. I've applied the folder template...

File Description Missing in Large Folder View by Radiation
Today the file descriptions went missing from folder view in explorer. I like the large/medium folder views, but without the name of the folder there makes it hard to navigate to the files I want. I cannot find any options to turn the folder names back on in this view. Any help would be appreciated. Here are some pictures of what I'm talking about. Missing Folder Names:...

I want to arrange files in my folder by type by txacoli
In XP, the option to arrange files by type was always there. In Vista, it is not. I know that I have to right click and select on of the 680 or so options for arranging files that are there, but to be honest, I use Sort by - TYPE soooo often, that I want it to be there all the time. Is there something I can do to make this a default option, maybe amend a registry key or something??? It drives...

Change Drive Letters by Boblink
Hi, I POSTED an earlier not about collapsing a Partition and redistributing the disk space to another Partition and also would appreciate help with Re-lettering these Partitions. I tried to rename a Partition "E" but "E" was NOT listed on the options (Change Drive Name an Path) although NO current Drives were named "E".

Inconsistent Partition Data by Christian Kaiser
I have a Vista 64bit installed in a VMWare VM environment and resized the harddisk from 35 to 45 GB (35 is definitely too small for Vista and a few language packs). Then I did start the Management console, connected to Disk management and extended the volume. This worked well when I had to extend 25 to 35 GB (I was too optimistic at that time). The a message box with "invalid parameter"...

File search by mark
When searching for (.doc, .xls or pdf) files from the search window or from an office application, most of the files found do not have applications associated with them and cannot be opened by double clicking on the file shown in the search window. The file can be opened by manually navigating to the file in windows explorer. There seems to be random files that can be opened this way, but...

Windows cannot find a file error message. by Dj Rawlings
Vista windows will not open an excel file from recent items or other document windows. It does open the application itself and then displays the error window "Windows cannot find 'C\( path to the file)\_____.xls. Make sure you typed the name correctly and try again." Windows search will show the file, but it goes through the same thing when it is clicked. The files can be opened within...

Copies made instead of deleting files by Nadyne Nelson
How do I delete files using Windows Explorer without making copies? I would also LOVE to have an icon to delete files but haven't been able to find this, either. I am trying to delete multiple files and VISTA keeps making copies of those files instead of deleting them. It's very frustrating. Also, is there any way to stop the Caps Lock from coming on automatically? Thanks in advance for...

Updated exe data moved to Virtual Folder by Andy Dyble
Hi After our software users starting using Vista, we stopped installing data that was changeable by our software (delphi based) in the program files folder as per MS instructions. We now have the program exe in program files but data in C:\ProgramData\Midsoft\Pipe Navigator\Data Works a treat. However, sometimes when users download a new version of the exe from our ftp site, the data...

(Vista 64-bit) Can one somehow "dump" a program's memory (e.g., firefox or chrome) to a file and load after closing a program? by wdonnell
The real problem stems from my headphone jack intermittently not responding (hardware-related, yes). And thus this relates to buffering videos and me being too lazy to reload them wasting additional time. -- wdonnell ------------------------------------------------------------------------ wdonnell's Profile: http://forums.techarena.in/members/wdonnell.htm View this thread:...
