Document Directory by Gene L.[_2_]
I use Vista Home Premium at home just for personal use. I do not use an extensive file arrangement and was wondering how I can by-pass the "users/Name" after the "C" prompt and go right to the documents. It is a little annoying to go throught all the folder names when I do not use them. Is there a way to do this? I appreciate your comments and suggestions. Thand you Gene L.

Windows cannot find Word 2007 docs in Explorer by David
Hi, I have Vista Business and Office 2007, both registered. When I try to open a Word doc in Explorer, I always get the error message 'Windows cannot find the file specified. Make sure you have typed the name correctly', and Word starts but with an empty Window. My file path is correct, the default path to my Documents in Word Options is correct, so it's weird. I reinstalled Word with no...

None deleted user folder by KelticGuy
I recently deleted a user account via Control Panel, User Accounts. Later whilst browsing in Windows Explorer I discovered the user's folder was still there in C:\users\usersname. I have adminstrator rights but the system would not let me delete this folder giving the error message that it was open by someone else? Sorry to be a bore if this question has been asked before but I couldn't find...

search feature disappeared from explorer? by james
I disabled the drive indexing service just like I always do in windows XP -- disable indexing on each drive, and turn off the indexing service. Now the search function disappeared completely in windows explorer. I turn back on the windows search service but the search function did not come back. I just want the real time, slow search function. How do I do this?

vista makes it hard to not use document folder? by james
Instead of using the default document folder, I prefer to use my own path to store my stuff (e.g. d:\user\mystuff). Compared to XP, vista seems to go to extra length to make it difficult to save/open files outside of the document folder. Many clicks are required to navigate out of the default document folder to d:\ Is there a way to make the default save dialog of all apps start in d:\...

Default Programs/Associations by husky86
I want to be able to have Gmail (through Firefox 3.0) as my default outgoing mail program selection. Meaning, I simply want Gmail to be the default mail program whenever I click on an email address--simple as that. In attempting to change the default setting associated with my e-mail, I went to Control Panel Default Programs Set Associations. Microsoft Outlook is currently the default...

Windows Vista Search by Mickey Mouse
The search function in Vista really does suck!!!! I've now been using Agent Ransack for searching but even that doesn't appear to do what I want. So, what do I want.....? Glad I asked! I have backup cd's with many folders within them I need to find a particular picture contained on one of those cd's hidden within one of those many folders.

File names are truncated / abbreviated when moved & invalid charac by murphsa1
When I move files from Outlook to a file folder the file name is truncated. Prior to upgrading to Vista, I could drag / drop a file from Outlook and the file name would remain intact. I'm not exceeding the total # of characters. Is there a setting I can change? Also, when attempting to rename a file, I get the error showing 'symbols' that can't be used in the file name ... but I clearly...

File action options in Context menu by dleddy
I've read a number of posts about this question and have yet to see a clear answer, or even a "you can't do that any longer": How can I assign different actions to a file type so that all of the actions are available in the context menu. For example, for an *.html file, I want to use IE to "OPEN" the file, but want to use HTML-Kit to "EDIT" the file. Creating these file type - program...

Very annoying message balloon by Mandevu
Attempted to backup my Outlook .pst files to a DVD but advised the backup was unsuccessful. Now a message continually pops up (see screenshot).

When I navigate to C:\Name..\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Burn\Temporary Burn Files there is nothing to delete - this...

Can't do a "save as" with Vista...and more by ernst32
Sorry for the length and craziness of this post in advance, and thanks for any help! Initially I was going to say I could not save anything at all in Vista, but now it seems that if I use the "save" option I can sometimes save something if I am quick. But most times, regardless whether it is the "save as" or the "save" command I use, I will get the whole "Office word has stopped working and...
