Shortcut - Right Click - Properties - Target - Can't Type Into Target


I just purchased a dell netbook, with windows 7. I am installing a game called guild wars. As most fans of the game know, you can download the entire game client and updates, by adding the command -imag at the end of the "target" under properties after right clicking on the guild wars shortcut. I was successful on installing the game, but i can't type in the "target" box in order to type -imag at the end of the directory (c://. -Imag) if anyone can help me with this problem i would really appreciate it. Once again the question is, how do i make it so i can actually type in the "target" box?

Shortcut Target Box Is Grayed Out, How To Enable Use Of Box?

Every time i try to unchecked the box in read-only then click apply and exit the window but then go back into the window to check to see if it did what i wanted it to do, the read-only box is checked when i want it unchecked. I need it unchecked so i can "edit" a file for a game so i can download all the images and have the game run faster. I've googled the problem for about a day and one solution seemed possible but a error comes up that says that the acl is a invalid structure.

So i googled that problem and the solution came to deleting all the acls' and putting yourself as the only admin or something along those lines. So i was wondering is their a way to get the read-only box unchecked and stay unchecked, so that i can affect the target box since it is grayed out?

Save Target As Issue

From time to time i would like to be able to save pictures or mp3's, but the "save target as" feature is dull. What setting do i change to enable that "save target as" feature?

I can left-click on the link, but it will be opened directly by it's default program. If it's an mp3, i don't want to have to hunt for it on my hard drive. Ie8 is already optimized. I've already tried deleting everything in the browsing history. I've tried defaulting everything in the general, security, privacy, and advanced tabs. What's next to try?

Ie8 Link With Target Not Work

I have windows 7 running ie8. After i installed some software, some links in web pages are no longer working. I notice that those "a"links have a "target" with something like "_blank", which would open a new ie window or a tab. Basically, the phenomenon is, when i click that link, a new tab is created with caption "connecting to ". The tab is always empty, and the address box shows the url of the original page.

However, for those links which open the web page in the same ie window, seem working fine. I would like to repair the ie8 or windows 7. But i don’t know how. It’s greatly appreciated if someone can provide some solution.

Homegroup Denies Update Privileges On Target Pc

I have two windows 7/64 pcs (home premium) with a homegroup established - can access files either way, but cannot update them. I have tried this with norton firewall on and off. I have tried with various file types but all access to save or save-as are denied. How do i fix this? I thought that home-groups were supposed to make things easier? Not sure how to paste an image of the folder permissions but in effect it says:

File sharing
Choose people to share with:

Moved Target All Programs Under Start Menu

I moved the target where "all programs" under the start menu points to. How do i restore it? I recently installed windows 7 professional over windows vista home premium. A windows. Old folder was created on my hard drive which stored all my previous files. Once the installation was complete, i moved all of my files back to where they should be. However, my program files (c:program files and c:program files (x86)) were not showing up in the "all programs" list under the start menu.

So in an attempt to remedy this, i opened the "all programs" folder by right-clicking on it, right-clicked the programs folder, then on the properties tab changed the location target to point to c:program files. Unfortunately, this did produce the desired results. Each program folder lists all sub-folders and files associated with that program (not just a shortcut to the program itself).

So how do i restore it back to the way it was? The original programs folder is no longer there. Also, if you know of the right way to have my programs appear in the "all programs" list under the start menu, that would be much appreciated.

Bug - Bsd On Target Host When Connecting To Win7 Shares

When connecting to a network share on a windows 7 professional host, the target host (server) immediately blue-screens. This behavior is repeatable and consistent.

Scenario:

Two windows 7 professional hosts were tested. One host had a fresh load using the hp standard image. The second host had a fresh load using the microsoft retail dvd. Both hosts are members of a windows server 2003 r2 hosted activedirectory domain running in native mode. Default network settings are used on both hosts, obtaining ipv4 addresses via dhcp. Domain administrative accounts were used in all scenarios.

Tests were performed in the following manner:

1) windows 7 professional client to the c$ administrative share on a windows 7 professional target host.
2) windows 7 professional client to an explicit, read-only share on a windows 7 professional target host.
3) windows xp client to the c$ administrative share on a windows 7 professional target host.
4) windows xp client to an explicit, read-only share on a windows 7 professional target host.

In all scenarios, the target windows 7 professional host immediately blue-screens. This behavior could be duplicated 100% of the time.

Problem Adding A Favorite Directly To Target Folder Selected

I just upgraded to ie 8, and i'm experiencing an irritating problem when having to add several websites to the same target sub-folder in my favorites. Maybe i've been spoiled by the convenience of an older version of internet explorer where the "add a favorite" pop-up would automatically be set to the subfolder that i had selected when adding another related website prior to the one at hand. I'm talking about the folder displayed where it says "create in".

That was a great function, because usually if i'm searching some information on a subject i want to add interesting websites one by one to the folder that i've specified for that subject. It's a time saver when the target folder is already set to the one that you've justset it towith your most recent add. Otherwise you have to go through all your folders and subfolders again to find the same target folder every time you want to add another website to that folder.

I know it doesn't matter to those people who just have a few folders. But if you use the internet as your own personal encyclopedia, creating folders and sub-folders for all the information that interests you, it's important to be able to navigate through it easily and save information easily in the right order and place. So my question is if there is any way i can enable that function by changing some settings perhaps? And how can i do that? Now it's just always set to the default folder"favorites".

File Transfer From Mac In Target Disk Mode To Win 7 Via Firewire

i'm trying to transfer my music collection from a mac running osx onto my windows 7 laptop pc.

Have just forked out for a firewire cable and am trying to get that working.

Have switched the mac into "target disk mode" which makes it behave just like an external hard drive and plugged it into my laptop via firewire.

Windows 7 recognizes an "sbp2 compliant ieee 1394 device" has been plugged in.

However - i cannot browse the mac's files. Under devices and printers the h: drive appears but it is not browsable.

Have tried all three ieee 1394 drivers, and interestingly "1394 ohci compliant host controller (legacy)" driver is the only one where a "browse" tab appears in the devices and printers bit. However when i open the drop down, a h: appears, but it is greyed out and not clickable.

Any ideas?

Recycle Bin Properties

On the general tab, the settings for selected location are grayed out, so i can't change them. And by default my single local disk (c:) is set to "don't move files to the recycle bin. Remove files immediately when deleted. "I can see the maximum size was set at 17286, but i can't change the recycle bin to actually use that location.

I can find the c:/$recyclebin, and note that the folder is set to "read only". And even if i remove the read only attribute and have it applied to all of the contents, the next time i look at it i find that it is still read only. Any way to re-enable the recycle bin?

Cannot Save Properties Of Folders

I create a folder, call it test, on my desktop and click on "organize" and then "layout" and turn off the "navigation pane" this is the way i want this folder to appear. I then close the folder. If i re-open it right away it looks as i left it. However, now i click on "windows explorer" and it does not have a "navigation pane" which it needs, so i click on "organize" then "layout" and then "navigation pane". I finish with "windows explorer" and close it and go back to my "test" folder and lo and behold it has a "navigation pane". Shouldn't i be able to maintain different appearances for different folders and applications?

Input Language Keyboard Properties

When i switch between them the language bar shows korean but sill puts english characters on the screen. I have tried removing the input languages and uninstalling the language pack and reinstalling it. I believe the problem is with the properties of the korean keyboard properties. How do i fix this?

Folder / File Permissions In Properties Tab

I have a particular program that will not start because i do not have write permissions for the folder, sub-folders, and files associated with the program. Going to the properties tab reveals that the folder is read only. I uncheck the box but can't seem to make it a permanent change. It always comes back up as read only. I have gone into every imaginable edit/advanced tab possible and given permissions to every possible group i can think of, yet despite the fact that every kind of permission possible is enabled and visible, i still can't uncheck the read-only box permanently and i still get "you do not have write permissions" from the program. I have tried changing ownership, running as administrator, and yet no progress on this problem.

My Documents Shortcut Does Not Work

I am in a school environment where we do not allow students to access the c drive. We also redirect students my documents¯ folder to a network file storage server. We are in the process of converting to windows 7 and found that when a student tries to access their my documents¯ from their desktop they get an access denied message.

We would like to keep students from accessing the c drive but allow them the use of the desktop short cut for their my documents¯. We are pretty sure this is due to the fact that the my documents¯ folder is now a subfolder on the desktop. Is there a simple fix to allow students access only to their my documents¯ folder?

Win 7 Shortcut Key

Trying to find a thread on keyboard shortcuts for win7. Specifically: in vista the windows+space bar brought you to the sidebar for easy access to your gadgets. In win7 the keystroke gets you to a (temporary) state on the desktop, but it doesn't persist. In other words, when you release the key combo, you return to whatever windows were open.

I am aware that you can click in the far right space on the task bar to go to the desktop; you can even set a preference to either peek or show the desktop. But that means having to remove your hands from the keyboard. Windows + p toggles your displays. So what are the all the keyboard shortcuts?

Shortcut Keys Not Working

Ctrl + a and ctrl + d stopped working in the mail program to select all and delete selected emails. These functions work if accessed through edit on the toolbar but not if want to use the shortcut keys.
Also, backspace key is not functioning on one particular website i access. The backspace arrow in upper left corner functions properly but not the backspace key.

This makes browsing very slow and this is a shopping site that you want to be able to browse back and forth easily from a product to it's description and back to the next product. Oddly enough, this is the only site i have this problem with so i thought the problem was on their end, except my problem with the other shortcut keys makes me suspect. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Shortcut Icons Disappear

My problem is similar to raynman's but on a desktop (hp with win 7 home premium), so it isn't related to closing a laptop. My games shortcut icons sometimes disappear, plus a shortcut to broadband internet connection. It doesn't happen except when booting up or waking up, but it doesn't happen often either. Just unpredictably. Only way to restore the missing icons is to recreate each one.

I've seen this behavior in previous windows versions back to 3. 1. By this time windows really ought to include a desktop-memorizing and restoring function, not just for icon positions but for the icons themselves, and not just for system icons.

Network Shortcut Disappeared

I'm a system administrator for a small-medium company. We are moving to windows 7, because i think it's faster and reliable than xp. But we have a little problem: all the client that are using a new windows seven pc , complain about the same little (but annoying) problem: some times (generally after reboot, but not ever) all "network shortcut" disappear from desktop without any reason.

With the word "network shortcut" i mean: link to remote folder (folder on a network file server), link to network computer, or link for my own connections (like vpn connection to my company). An yway only link to network resources are affected by this problem, [desktop icon, internal link, ore file icons, are not affected by this problem].

Why Does Win 7 Delete Shortcut Icons?

I have windows 7 enterprise loaded on my laptop. My favorite games are freecell, spider solitaire, solitaire, minesweeper, mahjong titans, and chess titans. As i play these games often i made shortcuts on my desktop. When the screen-saver comes on i have it set to 3d text with the time displayed and on resume, display logon screen. I have it set to go to screensaver after 10 minutes then under my custom plan settings the display goes off after 20 minutes.

When i return after the display has turned off i type in my password and when the display comes back on the shortcuts for these games have been removed. I have 6 other desktop icons and these are still there only the game icons get removed. Is there a reason this happens and is there a way to keep this from happening?

Restore Application Data Shortcut

I have to admit i did this one to myself.

On the user profile (c:users
Ame) if you turn off the "hide protected operating system files" setting, it displays a number of "shortcuts". If these have been deleted, are there any way to restore them. It seems they are not really shortcuts but junctions.

What happens if i install a program that is still looking for the %application data% variable, it will create a directory on c:users
Ameapplication data instead of placing it on c:users
Amelocalroaming

Any help will be greatly appreciated to save me from myself.

Cannot Change Desktop Shortcut Icon

I've got an application shortcut on my desktop which leads to a dos based executable. The icon is apparently generic windows 7. I've tried to change it several times to one of the icons in shell32.dll. No luck, the apply button remains greyed out, even though for all intense and purposes the shortcut itself recognizes the icon as it is depicted in the upper left hand corner of properties. If i change any of the other settings and apply the icon it is still not transferred. This is only true of this "dos" based app.

One Click Print From Outlook

I have outlook 2007. I receive pdf invoices. With xp, i'd right click the attachment and click print. The file would print. In windows 7 rc i get a prompt "open this file with acrobat" click ok, file opens in acrobat, click what used to be print using last settings in acrobat, print preferences appear, click ok to print. Then close file and back to outlook for the next one.

The default application for pdf is set to acrobat. Please help, this is driving me mad and despite everything in windows 7 looking great this will send me back to xp if i can't find the fix.

Toolbars When Right Click On Taskbar

I just upgraded to windows 7-64 bit home premium from vista-64 bit. Now i notice that when i rt-click on the taskbar, and then select the toolbars option, i see the usual ones like the quick lunch, links, adress, desktop, but then i also see two that i have never seen before; they are itunes and tablet pc input panel.

I do have itunes application, but why does it appear as a toolbar option? Besides, when i click it, nothing happens. And, i really don't know anything about the tablet pc input - may be this later is a normal option that i had never paid any attention. I'd appreciate any help in resolving the itunes toolbar issue.

Program Shortcut Issue In Win Xp Mode

A program installed in win xpmode did not result in a shortcut appearing in windows xpmode applications in the (win 7 pro) start menu.

The program runs fine with xpmode open. Inside xpmode, short cuts are apparent. Does anyone know how to manually get win 7 to see an xpmode shortcut? Failing that, in a last gasp at functionality, could anyone tell me the command line code for accessing the host machine drives. Off hand, any code has to work as preamble (sent to dos) providing a context for the legacy program. The legacy program is an old version of gauss that worked in win 98 and nt4.

Ie Keyboard Shortcut For Open Link In New Tab

The help file for internet explorer states that the keyboard shortcut for "open links in a new tab in the background" is "ctrl+click", yet last i looked "click" is not a key, it is a mouse activity. How does a non-mouse user (blind, physical disability) perform "ctrl+click", or rather, how does a non-mouse user open links in a new tab in the background?
