Win7: Cannot delete a file by Jeffrey Kaplan
If there is a Windows 7 newsgroup, I cannot find it. In one of my directories is a file that cannot be deleted. It is zero bytes big, and when I try to delete it, Windows 7 (Home Premium x64) tells me that it cannot because it's not found. The error dialog is titled "Item not found" and the error message is: Could not find this item This is no longer located in {name of directory}. Verify...

Windows 7 Search by smoddelm
Sorry to post a Windows 7 question in a Vista group, but I assume the issues and answers apply to both. Also, am I missing something, or is there no Windows 7 set of groups here? 1. I've Googled and searched various online forums, and I read Microsoft's page on advanced search syntax and can't seem to find the answer no matter how I frame my question: Is there a "NOT" filter in Windows 7...

Making Win 7 Folder Structure More Visible by Tom461
I just moved from XP to Win 7. I was in the process of transferring custom.dic when I realized that the AppData folder did not appear under my user name, but that's where I need to put the custom dictionary file. My question is how to make all the folders appear in Win 7 so I can work with folders, as I did in XP. I suspect there is a configuration option, but I so far have not located it...

pdf and vista by JohnA
When accessing a link to a web site that has a pdf file, I click on the link, a new window opens, and finally at the bottom of the window the work done appears. Screen stays blank. On another computer everything works well. Both computers are vista and IE 8. Is there some setting that would cause this or another newsgroup I need to see?

Can Not delete item from External drive by TBaum
I'm have a problem deleting a folder from my external hard drive. It has 2 subforums, and in the last one is an .avi file. Whenever I try to delete it I get "Could not find this item... This is no longer located in ----- Verify the item's location and try again." I've tried Taking Ownership and command prompts, as well as Unlocker.

Customizing Windows Explorer toolbars by Michael
Just installed Vista. Not terribly wild about it so far. Willing to give it a chance, though. On Windows Explorer, what has happened to the ability to customize the toolbars? I used to be able to add cut/copy/paste/delete icons to the toolbar. Saved time, added convenience. Doesn't appear to be there anymore. Am I missing something? Is there some whole new concept of how I should be working...

how to make a folder password protected? by Technician
I wonder why nobody replied the question on password protecting folders. I am not sure if the post author is still interested in the answer but I guess a reply may still be useful if you find this post when searching the forum. I always search for an answer before posting a question. So here you are. Windows does not allow you to password protect a particular folder. You can only password...

Using vista 64 and I have a folder that contains another folder with a small file inside. Vista will NOT allow me to delete the folder from the desktop. I have tried everything that I know to do: 1. I tried to delete from the command prompt. 2. I tried renaming to folder. 3. Downloaded a "unlocker" program as suggested in other posts, doesn't work on 64 bit. This is driving me nuts....Any...
