File Download Search In Folder


I use windows 7 ultimate. Firefox latest version. I download music preview files, alot and i want to find a way to better short my file during download. e.g. Axwell - take this ( dj remix )

That is a song name. I have a music folder with many subfolders ( their name are based from source of download or genre ) my problem now is a have multiple ''double'' / alot of same songs in different folders, which take too much hdd space.

When i click download, i have a pop up window, ask for ''save as'' it direct me to my music folder, now i can see if i already own the file if it's written exactly the same (ask to replace file). But when i am into a sub-folder i dont know if i already have it in music main folder or another music subfolder. ( Lets say, im into c:/music/electro , i want to know if i already have that song in c:/music/house or c:/music or all sub-folder in music without having to look every folder before download. )

Do you understand my request? Is their such feature in windows 7?

Bing Toolbar Download Has Stopped Search

Bing toolbar download has stopped search from opening a new page when queried (as i want). I've tried every setting i can find regarding how to open a new window with a new link or a new search and they all seem to be set correctly - but this won't work with any of the search engines on my tool-bars (and it did before the download). They always open in the same window which is a major pain in the rear end.

I tried to system restore before i installed the new toolbar†but then i had problems with the toolbar that used to be there (essentially an older version of the same toolbar) that said i needed to reinstall it. Can anyone please help me get a separate window to open when i execute an ie search?† I'm comfortable with windows and if i need to make changes to the registry that's perfectly fine.

Search And The Up One Level (folder) Button

So i have searched for something and found the folder i am looking for. I want to delete this folder (not just its contents) and maybe some other things in it's parent folder. Anyhow, i click into this folder from the search and then try to go up. First instinct, up button. Well that's not there, that's just old habit. Look to the whole breadcrumb bit. Only takes me back to my search.

Why would i want to go back to my search if i found what i am looking for. Lright, well maybe i am missing something. *Right click* look for up a level or something. Nada. The only way i can find out where i am is by clicking on a file and going to it's properties. Sorry, but this is just plain poor designing. I'll admit that maybe i am missing something still, please someone help me.

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.

Win 7 Search A File Issue

After much browsing through the various questions and responses i oficially give up. I am at a loss for words at the outrageousness of a so-called operating system that will not perform a simple file search. Win7 will search my usb hard drive, but not the c: drive. I have set settings, rebuilt indices until i quit. Fortunately, i have win7 pro, which includes the xp virtual machine. So, when i want a trustworthy search, i start the virtual machine and go to the xp search routine.

Search Java File Type Contents

I am having problems searching my . Java files. I go to the folder the file it†is in, type a keyword in the search box, like "system", and it shows there are no files that match my search. When i change the extension to .txt, it finds my files. I have checked the advanced options in index options and the java extension is listed there as checked to be indexed for searching contents and file attributes. I have also checked that my individual file properties are set to allow for indexing of file properties and contents. Is this just a bug or am i missing something?†If anyone could help me with this let me know.

Unable To Download File Is Corrupt

I am having problems downloading any kind of update for my laptop. The updates i am talking about are for windows, norton, etc. I am not a crazy downloader. It will start the update and then a message will pop up saying the update was unable to be completed because files are corrupt. The techs at norton were finally able to get the updates†to take but†they †had to have†publisher had to show up as unknown. In addition to that from time to time the webpages will obscure and all mixed up. Any clue on how to fix this?I hope this makes sense, my husband is the one that handles all the computer issues and he is deployed so i am doing my best.

Connect Camera As Mass Storage Class - Cannot Download File

I have a problem described in microsoft article id: 814390 whereas i cannot download an . Avi file since it is 1. 7gb. The recommended solution is: "you can connect the camera by using usb mass storage class (msc) instead of ptp. Then, transfer large files by using windows explorer. ""Well, that sounds simple enough, " i thought. I've been all around the computer trying to find some way to convince the computer that the camera is a mass storage class. I can't find ptp or msc in the computer anywhere. Even the help and support center (f1) has no record of these terms. I'm stumped. Any help on how to achieve this?

Error - File Or Folder Open Or In Use By Another Program

I am using windows 7 64-bit on an asus laptop, and recently ran into a strange problem. I have a shared hard drive on a desktop pc that stores all of my working files. I often work from the laptop across my wireless network, working on files stored on my desktop hard drive. The desktop is running win xp professional.

When i try and move a folder on the desktop hard drive using the laptop running win 7 i am getting the error"file or folder open or in use by another program, please close the program and try again"
The files are not open on the desktop or elsewhere on the laptop either, but nothing i do seems to unlock these files so they can be managed remotely from the laptop across the wireless network.

I found one forum post that said something about having to unlock the permissions for the file in windows 7?†Is this the problem?†And if so, how would one go about doing that?†I have checked the permissions of the folders themselves, and they are set to full read write access for everyone, so i don't know what i could possibly change. This is a very annoying glitch, having to go to my desktop every time i need to move or delete a file from my shared hard drive!

Also i have had no problems in the past w/ my previous two laptops managing files across my network on this particular desktop drive. Those were running win xp home and media center edition.

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.

Can't Open Downloads Folder, File Does Not Have A Program Associated With It

"this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the default programs control panel". As far as i can tell, all my other folders open up fine. Last thing i did was trying to download some software that would gradually turn my volume down so that i could fall asleep to it. It didn't work (older software, seemed like it wasn't compatible with windows 7) so i deleted the application and the installer which were located in my downloads folder.

Editing Xml File In Program Files Folder

I have a .net program that reads an xml file located in the application startup folder. Under windows xp, i can simply go in and edit this file to change settings, etc. In windows 7, it is driving me crazy. It looks like i am editing it (running notepad as administrator) and writing the file back to the folder. But then i start the program, and the settings remain unchanged. I've even tried deleting the xml file completely to no avail - the program should give me an error if the file cannot be found (it does this correctly under xp), but it somehow seems to find†the original file even though i cannot see the file in windows explorer or find it from a dir command in a dos box.

.xml File Located In System32 Folder, Is Not Recognised

I have a problem concerning an xml document and windows 7 system32 folder. I have recently installed the latest driver for my nvidia graphics card and one of the files it loads is nvapps.xml into the windows7 system32 folder. I also use a programme called nhancer which modifies the nvidia programme for the benefit of ms flight simulator x (my hobby).

I now find that nhancer cannot load because it cannot find the nvapps.xml file in system32. If i highlight the nvapps.xml file in system32 and press open or edit, i get the message which says :- windows cannot find "c:windowssystem32nvapps.xml". Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. (Actually, i get this message three layers thick on the screen (i.e. I have to acknowledge it three times before the message disappears from the screen)). I have found that there are ten *.xml files within system32 and five of them produce the above message and the remaining five all open easily and correctly. Of the five that windows cannot find two of them are associated with the nvidia driver and the other three are not in any way connected with that driver. I have also found that if i copy the nvapps.xml file to a different folder or hard drive, then i can open or edit it quite normally and without difficulty. I would be grateful for any advice or comment that about my problem.

Download Programs To Default Folder "program Files" 32-bit Or 64-bit

I have been confused if programs automatically download to the optimum "program files" for 32-bit or 64-bit or do i have to select which if the two program files i want it in? It seems everything has been going into the x86 file. I don't want to just move them all over to the 64-bit file if they really belong in the x86 file, but i am sure my new photoshop programs belong in the program files file yet they seen to have downloaded into the program files (x86) instead. Also, how am i to know which programs are better suited for either folder?

Update: i tried copying the photoshop file and moving it to the 64-bit folder but it won't let me do so, saying a file is in use somewhere. I do not have any files from this open; i even restarted the computer to completely close anything that might be open and i get the same message. Is this maybe because it does not belong in the program files folder for 64-bit programs? Any other hints on how i can move this program, along with adobe premiere elements (for making videos) that gives me the same message? I have been told these programs would work better running as 64-bit programs so that is why i want to move them.

Search Not Working

I did a fresh install of windows 7 64 in october and the search in the start menu worked like a charm. It's now two months later and i noticed that it is not working on my default admin profile. When i type in the search box, it does not say "searching" at the top and it doesn't pull up anything. When i click on "see more results", i get an error message that "windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access this item. "

This error puzzled me because search still works on my additional user profile that does not have admin privileges. I double checked to make sure that my admin profile had access to all of the files i was trying to search. I have had no problems accessing any files directly.

I tried deleting and re-indexing, i trimmed down the number indexed files, i tried using the search troubleshooter, and i moved the indexing folder all to no avail. When none of this worked, i created a new windows user profile and ported all the data from my default profile. The search worked on this new profile only until the next time i rebooted my computer. Since my other user profile still works, i even tried changing the newly created admin profile to a user profile just to see if administrators somehow had limited permissions, but had no luck.

At this point, i'm completely out of ideas.

I doubt the other windows issue i'm working on is related to this issue, but i want to mention it anyway on the off chance there is a correlation. I'm having resource issues with wmpnetwk.exe. So far, i've managed to cut its cpu consumption from 100% to 50% through the tips on this site. I'm not asking for help on that issue in this post though.

Search Is Not Working

Content search does not work. The content search in windows explorer does not work. Under "more options" i have selected "content". In indexing options i have selected the correct folder and file type. I have selected "index properties and file contents". I have rebuilt the index. I have tried restarting my laptop. In folder options – search i have tried "always search file names and contents"i have also tried "donít use the index when searching in file folders for system files"†the only results i get is the result of a search of the file name but not the contents.

Search Not Working At All

Windows 7 search has stopped returning any results. If i type into the search bar at the top of explorer, no results are found. I can use wild-cards, complete filenames that i know are in the folder or words that i know are in the indexed files. Most of the references on the web talk about removing or checking registry keys that either don't exist or shouldn't, my event log indicates that there's a problem accessing some files, but the system, local service and normal users have access.

There's no reference to the user that is trying to crawl/gather the data so i can't tell if the error is real. I've tried changing security, i've moved and rebuilt the index. What i don't get, is this was working a few weeks ago. I did a backup and now nothing works. I can't even locate a file by wildcard file searches so it isn't just the index that's broken, its the search behavior. I've looked under as many covers as i can, and yet i still can't fix it. I've changed security, i've researched more web pages than i care to remember and still no resolution that is applicable or makes sense.

The microsoft web site has turned into a fluffy site with no technical data that is relevant. The help system doesn't even describe the options that are present on the screen so you could work out what the options are. I've worked in it for 20 years as a developer and support person. This has got me totally ready to move to a mac.

Cannot Open Items From Within Search

I note that many, many folks are having difficulty with explorer in windows 7. This is likely related, but i can't find discussion of this specific issue.

Windows 7 pro x64

When i have the search window open (i use ctrl-f to launch it), it erratically but frequently ceases to allow me to open a file or email message from within the search window. This is usually accompanied by the preview pane ceasing to work. This is then usually followed by explorer crashing.

However, all of the above are somewhat inconsistent. They happen on a nearly daily basis, but in different permutations. Restarting will always resolve the issue, but only temporarily. It sometimes returns immediately, sometimes hours later.

I don't see this behavior on my other systems so perhaps it is a third party software issue. But i can't associate this with any obvious third party software interference.

Has anyone experienced and resolved a similar issue?

And, who can recommend a third party search utility that works well with windows 7 and specifically with outlook 2007? I am completely dependent on searching my email archives, previewing and then opening the messages from within the search window/utility.

Search Yahoo Problem

Folks, i decided to give yahoo! Search a shot as an alternative to google i have been using, but there is something really bothersome, i am wondering if it is y! Causing this or it is my system, browser, etc?

When i type a search in yahoo, for example "how to edit sendto menu pcmag", it pulls up results, since i am looking for what pcmag had to say about it, i add a pcmag keyword, the link i want to see is listed in the first place, but sometimes, not everytime, when i click on this link, i end up in a totally unrelated advertisement website. It doesn't happen with google. Just a few minutes ago, i was doing another search about windows 7's media center, i clicked on of the search results and i ended up in this vlc media player advertisement. At first you don't notice, you skim through the page and once you can't find the information you are looking for, usually you wake up within a second, you go back, click the link again and this time the result displays correctly.

What is happening here? I use msse for virus protection and spybot for spyware protection, if it is yahoo abusing it, i am going back to google.
