New "Documents" folder keeps appearing in Desktop by maryse
I was moving a few things and I must have screwed up one of my folders. The "Documents" folder is now missing the "location tab" and although it says it is found under c:\users\xx where it should be, every half an hour or so the system writes a duplicate "Documents" folder to my desktop with the location c:\temp. So I get TWO "Documents" folder, one under the other without any difference...

Help change .zip default action from Explore to Open by genesis0x0
When I double click a .zip file in Vista, the default action is to Explore the file in the same window. Is there a way to change the default Explore action to Open so that when I double click a .zip file, it opens it in a new window? Thanks --

Problem with EPS files in Windows Vista by arthur313
I have been using Windows Vista Home Premium for 5 days now. I have noticed that when I have a folder with an EPS (Adobe Illustrator) file in it then when I open that folder Windows Explorer will often crash. Even if the folder with the EPS file is on an external harddrive then the window will crash. Sometimes I manage to open the folder, but when I try to delete the EPS file it will say...

Lost the Download Dialog box by Richard B
You know that dialog box that pops up when you start a download asking if you want to "RUN" or "SAVE" the file? Well there is a little check box on that dialog to ask if you want this question each time. That box got UNCHECKED by accident And I can't find the control to restore it.

return the file search feature that was so easy to use in XP Pro by stumped-in-excel
I'm trying to learn Vista after many successful years using XP - and the thought process behind this software just doesn't make sense. If BMW came out with a new car like MS designs new software - the steering wheel would be in the back seat and the gas pedal would be in the trunk. So many easy and intuitive features worked so well that you have made so obtuse and counter intuitive. ...

Folder icons change when moved to another computer by MW[_3_]
I've changed the folder icon of several folders. When I move them onto a data CD they remain as I changed them. But when I open the CD on another computer they revert to the old yellow default folder. How do I get them to keep the changes? On another forum I was told to place that icon file into that particular folder (no problem) and to create a "desktop.ini file" and make it a system file...

Can' Erase DVD by JamesJ[_4_]
Vista Basic 32bit sp2. I have a DVD/CD rewritable. I've created a slide show using different jpegs on 2 DVDs. The only difference is one dvd is a Sony the other is a Memorex. Both slideshows were created with the same software. But, on the Sony I'm unable to erase or format the disk. Vista tells me the Sony is Write Protected. In fact the right click option to 'Erase Disc' is missing. The other...

finding files modified between dates by stumped-in-excel
I'm a XP Pro user that just converted to Vista. I'm having trouble finding all files on C:\ that were modified between certain dates. XP had a very easy search function but Vista is a bit more obtuse. Can someone please tell me how to find files created or modified between specific dates or before or after specific dates? I'm at my wits end -
