Office 2007 Programs Do Not Appear In Default Programs List


I have both openoffice.org and microsoft office 2007 installed on my windows 7 computer and i would like to use microsoft office as the default for all files it can open but it does not appear in the default programs list.

In fact, except for microsoft office outlook, none of my microsoft office 2007 applications appear in the default programs list!

Openoffice.org does appear, and when i click on it in the list and click choose defaults for this program many of the defaults are already set to the equivalent microsoft office application. But there are some associations (such as text files) that are not correctly associated, and possibly others that i don't know about. I'd like to click on microsoft word and then click set this program as default so that it will automatically open all the files it can.

Office 2007 Popup Files For Programs Could Not Hold

Office 2007 on window 7: why the small pop up files for certain programs could not hold when a file is closed ?. I just started using office 2007 running on window 7. I notice that the small pop up files when the cursor touches the icon at the task bar for certain program could not hold when one of the files is closed. The rest of the pop up files get minimize back to the task bar. If i need to close or access to another file, i need to click back the icon again to  get the pop up. The programs that have these problem are, excel 2007, outlook 2007, connect to remote computer.

Other program that could hold the pop up files when a file is closed are internet explorer v8, words 2007, acrobat reader. For non microsoft software like quattro pro the pop up can only show one small file even though many files are open. In my opinion, all the program icon should have the same feature for the purpose of consistency. i.e. To show up all the open files in the pop up and be able to hold when any file is close in order the user could go to the next file by sliding the cursor across, save the extra click to get back the pop up. May i know if there is a way to reset the window 7 os to enable similar feature on all icons?

Re-arranging Folders List Of All Programs In Win7

Re-arranging the folders list of "all programs" in windows 7. I want to re-arrange the folders list that i see when i click the all programs button of the start menu. In vista, you right-clicked the start button and were given an "open" option from which you could add, delete or re-name, etc. That's gone. I also don't see the "start menu" in the list of files, either. So, how do i re-arrange that list in windows 7?

Taskbar Pinned Programs List Modification

Taskbar pinned programs list modification (ie modification of the list of programs (and folders) which is displayed upon-right clicking a program in the taskbar). I would like to know, how can i change the number of ¯frequent¯ programs (or folders) shown in the list of programs which are displayed upon right-clicking a program in the ¯taskbar¯.

I don't like the fact that there are circa 40 ¯frequent¯ programs listed in my list, because then the ¯pinned¯ programs are the furthest away from the taskbar, which in my opinion doesn't make a lot of sense, since the ¯pinned¯ programs are the most important and most oftenly used ones.
If that can't be done, i would actually be even more pleased, if i could move the ¯pinned¯ programs down the list, so they would be the closest to the taskbar.

How do i restore internet explorer (64 bit ) to the "all programs" list? I dragged internet explorer ( 64 bit) from the "all programs" list to the desktop. Then, by accident i deleted that shortcut which went to the recycle bin which i actually emptied after. When i clicked on the start menu and the "all programs" list again the link to internet explorer (64 bit ) was missing to my dismay. Is there anyway i can get internet explorer ( 64 bit ) to show again on the "all programs" list? Windows 7 home premium

Yahoo Mail Doesn't Appear In List Of Email Programs In Ie8

Yahoo mail doesn't appear in the list of e-mail programs in internet explorer 8 options although i have installed the latest version of yahoo toolbar. I have an e-mail account on yahoo. I want to use yahoo mail as the default e-mail program so it opens directly when i click on any e-mail link.

I went to this page: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/original/settings/settings-10.html

It says that i need to install the latest version of yahoo toolbar to do that. I have done that but yahoo mail doesn't appear in the list of e-mail programs in internet explorer options, there are only hotmail and outlook. I have contacted yahoo customer care and they told me that i have to contact microsoft support about this issue, and when i tried to do that, i found there is no support by e-mail, it's only by phone, and i like to use the e-mail one.

Anyone from microsoft support or community member can help me in my issue, which is to make yahoo mail appear in the list of e-mail programs so i can choose it as default email?

Aero View - Outlook 2007 & Other Programs

Update: these actually appears to happen when i have any program running, but it is not happening all the time. I noticed that when i have outlook 2007 (all office updates) running, when i move my cursor to "aero view" my open ie & tabs, they momentarily show but if i'm not fast enough i can select the ie/tab i want. The problem does not occur when outlook 2007 is not running.

The other problem i noted with aero view, is that when i 'right-click' on the ie icon (whether i have other programs running or not), the options momentarily appear but disappear to quickly to allow selection of an item in that menu.

Office 2003 Programs Flicker After Upgrade

Since upgrading to windows 7 home premium from vista home premium, excel 2003, word 2003, and access 2003 from office 2003 professional sp3 have what i would call a refresh flicker. I'm running a dell intel core 2 duo with a samsung syncmaster monitor and had no "flicker" problems prior to upgrade. I tried the compatibility troubleshooter with no success. Other non-office programs work fine. Any suggestions?

After Upgrade To Win7 Office 2003 Programs Flicker

Office 2003 programs have a "flicker" when running in an upgrade to windows 7 home premium.converted from windows vista home premium to windows 7 home premium on a dell intel core two duo. Everything works well except that in office 2003 sp3, word, excel, and access have what i would describe as a "refresh flicker".

It appears that there is a continuous refresh of the page selected that causes various parts of the page to "flicker". In addition, the cursor has the continuous running circle, instead of a pointer or arrow. Tried the compatibility wizard, and it did not work. This did not happen in vista. Do you have a suggestion on what is causing this?

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.

Security In Office 2007

I grade on a on-line platform and recently since purchasing a laptop w/win7 my "saved graded files" or when opening a previously graded and uploaded document (excel, word) at a later time [to cut & paste a tutorial onto the current work ] once uploaded. Both docs seem to be in touch with the platform. The old work opened seems to launch and communicate a new date stamp with the old upload location (or student) simultaneously with the current work being uploaded into the grade box or drop-box or next student.

Therefore both pieces then show the same time on the date stamp via upload. Lthough it may be the 'private schools' concern. This oddity did not arise with office 2007 & xp nor vista combination. Therefore, i am trying to ask. If this signifies a security weakness in my end (i do have firewalls, etc) or if win7 seems to retain links in order to map to recent places faster? How can i stop the reconnect?

Office 2007 Crashes

Since updating to windows 7 ultimate, i find my office 2007 apps keep stalling, freezing and crashing; windows explorer also keeps having the same issue. It happens when i highlight and copy and try to paste; when i highlight a selected section of text; when i try to drag ppt pictures; when i try to edit excel documents; and when i am on the internet with ie8.

The consistency of the crashes seems to vary. It does not always happen, but of late it has become more consistent. I have read posts on this and find that many people say they are having the same issues.

Cannot Register Ms Office 2007

I don't really know what else to do here. I have 2 problems and i really think that the problem is related. Firstly and most importantly, i can not register ms office ultimate 2007. I get the error 701098. It says either a proxy is the problem or its a firewall. I have no firewall running. Defender is not running. Nothing is running but for some reason, ms office is the only thing on the face of the planet that will not connect to the internet.

I need this to work for my college but cant get it to work and ms will not help me. 'i also am trying to tether my blackberry bold 9000 and it will not leave my computer as a modem to connect to the server to act as a modem. Something on my computer is blocking or not allowing and i can not figure out what it is and i cant do my school work.
