File Folders - Unable To View Content


Unfortunately i have vista/windows 7. I need the return of the xp-type flat folder  so i can see what is in the folders. I work through machine embroidery software called embird and really need to be able to quickly and efficiently choose a design as i could in xp, no trouble at all. Everyone in our machine embroidery group who thought they were upgrading when they bought  vista/windows 7 are so very disappointed and disgusted with the waste of time, money and effort in doing so.

The rest are hanging on to their old xp's like grim death. Why can't microsoft issue a patch to rectify this now obvious retrograde step (as evidenced by all the complaints on the forums. Don't they care that they have created a "dud" and by refusing to acknowledge their error are "doing the wrong thing" by their customers.come on microsoft - lift your act, rectify problems when you obviously know about them. Believe me, this problem is affecting your sales.

Searching For File Content

In windows xp it is possible to define a search to find a string in the *content* of a file. For example find all the files with the word 'aardvark' in them. In windows 7 this appears to be impossible. Why has such a *vital* function been dropped? If it hasn't been dropped why have microsoft hidden it? I am aware of the alleged 'fixes' for this issue online, but they do not work, so i'm left wondering why the simple option of 'search for files containing' has been deleted.

Cannot View Folders And Programs

Ive got issues with windows 7 that are progressively getting worse. It began with live messenger, affects mozilla and has now affected opening general folders. When i attempt to open a folder, it appears as an icon in the taksbar, and when i click to view it, it expands onto the screen, but keeps moving to the right of the screen and off the side almost instantly, meaning i cannot view it.

The folder/program are always active at the time, because when i have multiples open (eg watching movies in mozzila pages) i can see the thumbnails changing and moving etc. I managed to rid the mozilla problem by completely reinstalling it, but no luck with msn, and now i cant even open my computer or other folders. However when i run windows in safe mode i do not have this problem. When i right click the icon/s on the task bar i am only given options to view frequent folders (which does not work), pin to task bar, close window and open explorer(which also does not work). Ideas?

Xp Style File Content Search

Where is the win7 intuitive search function? Here's a classic example:

I have many of my docs backed up on an 8 gig memory stick (a ton of ms pub files, notepad docs, power-points, and so forth). I must have them on the memory stick so that i periodically search them to another computer with xp installed. Somewhere in this extensive library i have information related to a particular subject. I need to search the content of all files on the drive, looking for a particular ascii string.

In xp a search is easy.
Start / search / . Specify search criteria:
I enter the "word or phrase in the file"
And tell it where to look "look in:" drive g: [the mem stick] and bingo.
It goes and finds it, automatically searching the whole drive (the complete directory tree).

Now in windows 7 the search function has been removed from the start menu!
Well, where is it?! What happened to the xp intuitive search capability?
This is a powerful and important feature! Where did it go?

(Please do not explain how to search file names, or "asdf" contained within the filename.
This is not what i'm looking for. I want to search file contents. )

Win7 help function is worthless in this regard. Either 7 has the capability, or not, and either you know how, or not, but i'm hoping tech support has a straight up answer.

File Organization In List View

I just bought a new computer which has windows 7- i've used xp for the last 8 years on various computers, and there are many things which are extremely jarring. I've managed to figure out, tolerate, or get rid of most of the problematic areas, but i really can't figure this one out.

When i put folders into list view (my default since windows 95), all the files in folders are listing left-to-right (for example, amy.doc, amy2.doc, and boy.doc are all on the top of the file listing, and then the next line starts with boy2.doc, curmudgeon.doc, etc. ). Ever since windows 95, they've listed up-to-down (amy.doc, then amy2.doc directly below that). Sorry if that's confusing- i'm stuck on an old laptop with no imaging or ftp programs, so i can't provide any screen-shots of what i mean.

I can't stand this new way, i can't find anything because of it, and if there is a way to change it to the old way, i would very much love if someone could tell me how.

Two Separate Program File Folders

When i transfered my files from my old windows xp pc to my new windows 7 pc using windows file transfer it created two distinct "program files" folders. One just says program files and the other is program files (x86). This is causing me lots of problems in that there are xp and windows 7 versions of the same programs and i keep getting all sorts of error messages. What is the best way to resolve this problem as i am reluctant to "uninstall" various programs using the control panel as only one version shows up in the uninstall process and i do not know which one it is referring to.

Merging Folders - Preserving Newest File

I keep my work files in a folder on two separate computers (2 folders). As i work on each computer at different times, i have a mix of new and older files. I would like to merge these two folders together. Before i do this, i would like to make sure that windows 7 preserves the most recent document instead of just replacing one file with another, regardless of date since modified.
Is this something that windows 7 automatically does? If it doesn't, is there a tool that will help with this process?

Duplicate Program File Folders On Win 7 Pro 64-bit

I clean installed win7 pro 64 bit os from win7 pro 32 bit on my laptop and duplicate program files folders (with and without x86 designation) have been created. The duplicated files are windows programs, internet explorer, windows defender, windows mail, windows media player, windows nt, windows photo viewer, windows portable devices and windows sidebar. Does this mean that these duplicate windows apps are needed for 32 bit and 64 bit software to be able to work with that type of software respectively? Do i really need a 32 bit and 64 bit versions of internet explorer, windows defender, mail, media player, nt, photo viewer, portable devices and sidebar?

It would have been nicer just to have one set of these windows applications that works with both 32 bit and 64 bit software. These windows applications use a lot of hdd real estate. It would also be good to be able to have the option of uninstalling one of the duplicate sets. Is the ability to do just that available now?

Unable To View Thumbnails Using Detailed View

I am unable to view thumbnails in windows explorer while i am using detailed view. I only can see them when they are extra large. I can't see them in small, not in list, not in medium, just in extra large. I hate them extra large. I want to view them in detailed view. This is what i have done so far:under folder options/view i "unchecked" the "always show icons never thumbnails".

That did not work. I did go through tons of problems regarding thumbnails in the forums, but could not find a solution to my problem. I am using windows 7 professional 64 bit. I never had a problem with thumbnails in windows xp. Now i am struggling and i want to view my thumbnails again. I just don't know what else i can do. I must be missing something in the settings; but what?

Folder And Content Disappeared

I went to print out some pictures this morning to find that the entire group of subfolders and their content are gone. (Think of it as a tree starting with /public pictures/2010/feb/dateofpix/allpix.jpg - the dateofpix/allpix.jpg are gone leaving just the 2010/feb folders (empty).

I looked at the history of the feb folder and it says it was last modified last night at 9:50pm. We certainly didn't modify it since we were snoozing away at that time. I was able to restore back to 2/25 but that wasn't the last day we added photos to this folder (sat the 27th was and we've printed some of those so i know they were there).

What could cause folders & contents to disappear and how can i prevent this from happening in the future? I don't want to lose pictures. We do backups (bi-weekly and monthly) but not daily.

Ie7 Not Receiving Website Content

Running windows xp, using mozilla firefox as main browser and avr virus protection - no problems here at all. I originally installed ie8 but every time i tried to open would get "data execution prevention" message which would shut me down. Eventually set waiver for ie8 but same result.

Eventually removed ie8 and installed ie7. Now program opens but after typing any site address in address bar, tab appears with site name (eg. "Msn"0 but no content on page. On all occasions (whatever site i try to visit) it seems to be trying to contact "127. 0. 0. 1"

Is there a solution or should i simply forget about ie altogether. Problem is that the reason that i am using avr anti virus is that i need ie to install mcafee anti virus.

Can't View Flash

Ok, i have a problem. I've just downloaded ie8, thinking it would help, but the problem occurred in both ie7 & ie8. Ok, so on some sites i visit, flash files won't load. . Swf file extensions mainly. Some sites (like virtual worlds) work. But flash files, and embedded flash files don't. Here's an example.

This link won't show, it shows as a box with an 'x' in it (like a missing picture): www.Gardenpartyworld.com

This link, however, works, it's the actual flash of a virtual world: www.Gardenpartyworld.com/game

I cannot figure out how to make normal flash files visible in ie8, any response is appreciated.

Not Able To View Online Videos

Problem viewing internet videos, i recently purchased a toshiba satellite laptop with windows 7 (including wmp) installed. My browser is internet explorer. When i try to watch video on news channels (or youtube, or any other medium), the video will often stop midway, or after several seconds, and never resume. One channel prompted me to download flash player, which i did, but it has made no difference. The only system protection i have installed is microsoft security essentials. I've read several of the other posts which seem related to this, but they don't seem to have the answer i need. I'd sure appreciate any advice to address this problem.

Unable To View Online Video

Embedded windows media player i am trying to view a movie embedded on a webpage. I know the server is working, as i can view the movie on another computer using the same network connection i am using now. The video continues to say "connecting to media", then finally says "ready" but doesn't play the movie. The error says that it encountered an error while attempting to play the file. If i go to web help i get this error message windows media player c00d11b1 my sound device is not having an issue, so i don't see why that would be the problem. Has anyone encountered this issue or have any idea of a way to fix it?

Missing Icon View Options

After a fresh install of windows 7 64bit (all updates installed) it seems my folders are missing the option to view the files icons by groups, eg modified, type etc in the 'organize' drop down list in windows exploreras shown here in http://www.Sevenforums.com/tutorials/3952-file-folder-arrangement-group-sort-stack.html option 2 – my folders are missing the sort by and group by options, these option don't appear at all in the drop down list. It was present in my last w7 install, but it's not present in this install.

If i right click in a vacant space in the folder a window appears and in that window is my missing view options (group by, sort by etc) that should be in the 'organize' drop down list appear (along with the normal options that appear) why they aren't where they should be has got me stumped.

My Documents Renamed View Libraries

This is a windows 7 question -ok - this is a little complicated. I have a windows 2003 server in a domain environment. This server houses my users public directories. So under my "users" directory - bob smith has a "bsmith" directory and jane doe has a "jdoe" directory and so on. My users local "my documents" folders are mapped to their respective directory on the server. So if they click on their my documents folder - they are actually looking at their folder on the server. All of my users have a folder with their name and everyone can see and modify each others files.

(This is by design) now that i am bringing some windows 7 machines online - those folders are being renamed to "my documents". They aren't actually renamed - its just a view. Only my windows 7 users folders are being renamed and only my windows 7 users see the renamed folders as "my documents" so now - if i have 10 windows 7 users - and i go to my "users" directory on the server. I would normally see a folder for each person.

But now i see 10 folders that say "my documents" and the non windows 7 users still have their names listed normally. So i now have no idea which of these 10 my document folders is bob smiths. This only looks this way on a windows 7 machines. If i look in the "users" directory from an xp machine - they look normal. So this tells me this is some sort of windows 7 "view" or library. I need to turn this view off. Any ideas?

Unable To View Images On Some Websites

Ie Auto Switching To Compatibility View

I am developing a web page but when clicking a certain link, it causes the following message to appear:- "a problem displaying [address] caused internet explorer to refresh the webpage using compatibility view". The page renders fine in every other browser i have tried (firefox, google chrome, safari, opera), it is only ie that causes this message. The page still renders fine, but i want to stop the message coming up.

I have identified the code that is causing this to happen
 
.


If i remove the overflow:scroll bit of the code it stops the problem, but this breaks my site since the part of the page no longer has scrollbars even when the size of the contents means they are needed - so users cannot see some of the page.could you please confirm if this is a known issue with ie and if there is a workaround?

Cannot View Chinese Characters With Ie8

After installing recommended updates yesterday, a window popped up and asked if i wanted to install ie 8. I had been using ie 7 so i thought i might switch. I did not do any custom settings while installing ie 8. My default homepage has always been set to google.com. Hk which displays contents in chinese. When i was using ie 7, everything was fine and i could see all the chinese characters; but after i switched to ie 8, i can no longer see them. I tried adding the chinese (hk) and chinese (prc) languages at tools> internet options> language> language preference, but it didn't work.

I also tried the various chinese options at encoding, but it didn't work either. I should also mention that i have auto-select turned on in encoding. Fyi i am using windows xp home edition version 2002 service pack 3.

View / Add Printers To Client Pc

We have a windows 2003 domain and a mix of windows xp and windows 7 pcs. I am using a windows 7 pc. I can view a remote machines simply by typingcomputername just fine. With xp machines i can view they're locally installed printers and make changes to them. On windows 7 clients, i cannot. I get "you do not have sufficient rights to perform this operation". I cannot view the printers on any machine nor can i add a printer to any machines.

Once again. Everything works fine on windows xp clients. How can i correct this? I turned on network discovery and file and print sharing. It didn't seem to make any difference. Even when clicking on the 'view remote printers' of any windows 7 client pc, it shows 0 items even though there are 5 printers installed locally. I am a domain admin with local admin rights on all pcs. What is going on?

How To Format Digital Photo View?

I need to format disk f, and i can't figure out how. I put in my digital photo viewer into my windows 7 computer (toshiba, satellite: l305d-s5974), it says i need to format the disk in drive f, and before that it said i need to format the disk in drive e. It changed when i put in my flash drive (staples flash drive: 4 gigabites). When i do try to format it, it says that windows was unable to complete the format (it said that too when it said i need to format the disk in drive e). I have searched all over the internet and i cannot find a single solution, even on microsoft's website. Please let me know when you have a solution as soon as possible.

Cannot View Shared Files On Network

I have a home wireless network with three nodes, a desktop named desktop hard wired to a wireless router, a wireless notebook named pc-user, and a network printer, also hard wired to the router, that works with both computers. The desktop runs windows 2000 professional while the notebook runs windows 7 home premium. Appropriate folders on both computers are set for sharing. Neither of the users on the desktop, administrator or me by name, require passwords. The desktop can see and use shared files on the notebook.

The notebook shows the desktop as a node on the network but when i click on the desktop icon on the notebook network window to open a desktop folder i get a pop up window that says, "pc-user my name, a block to type in a password and an error message that says logon failure. " No amount of fiddling, creating passwords on the desktop and then using them on the notebook when trying to get into the desktop will work. I keep getting the logon failure message.
