Office 2010 Files Not Appearing In Jump Lists

I’m running windows 7 home premium (64-bit). Recently, i upgraded my existing office 2007 to office professional plus 2010 (32-bit). Since the upgrade, i’ve noticed that office open/recent files no longer appear in the jumplists. This is driving me crazy. I’ve searched and searched, but none of the fixes i’ve seen for similar problems are working. This issue is restricted to office 2010 programs only. Notepad, windows explorer, and internet explorer (for example) do not have this issue. I realize this isn’t a necessity, but i became sadly dependent on them with office 2007; and i feel a bit cheated that i can't use them with 2010. Please point me in the right direction.

Shortcuts To Files On Drives Disappear

On all my windows 7 machines, desktop icons that are shortcuts to files on drives that are not always mounted (primarily truecrypt virtual drives) regularly disappear. I keep many important links to things that won't fit on my taskbar (especially since windows 7 does not easily allow individual file or folder shortcuts to be pinned to the task bar anyway), and i really don't appreciate the operating system deleting my shortcuts.

These icons are work to create and organize, and the os keeps destroying them. Not acceptable behavior from an os. It is absolutely mystifying that this problem does not seem to appear on this web site, as a simple search on the web indicates that lots of people are struggling with this issue.

Files Missing From My Documents Folder

I had set my wife up as a user on my windows 7 pro laptop. She created and saved many files and folders in her my documents folder. Then my niece needed to use the laptop for her college nursing courses because she didn't have microsoft office 2007 on her personal computer at home, so i added her as a user and i also password protected my wifes files by adding a password to her profile. Fter i got the laptop back from my niece i removed the password from my wife's profile. Now, when she opens her my documents folder, all of the files and folders she had saved are missing. Where did they go? And, how can i get them back?

Missing Files / Documents In Win 7

My sister bought a brand new computer with windows 7 pre-installed less than three days ago. That night we brought it home and put all of her files on the computer, and stored them in separate folders in 'documents' folder (not the preset videos, music, pictures folders. )

The next day she got an error-type message saying that the computer was low on memory and it had to reboot. When the computer rebooted, all of her files were missing. Even applications that were in the 'downloads' folder. But when i looked in the 'computer' folder, it still showed that the os (c:) drive held 18. 5gb (out of 218gb). So i knew that it was still on the computer. I looked in the os (c:) drive > users > into her user folder and into 'documents and i found her files.

Today, she had the same problem, but when i tried to use the same method to find her files for her again, they aren't there. But the os (c:) drive still shows that its holding 18. 5gb of memory. Where should i look to find the missing files, and what could be causing this to happen?

Missing Files And Settings In Win 7

My settings and files have disappeared after loading them in following my windows 7 upgrade yesterday. I also installed stopzilla and did a full scan. Then, i re-uploaded all of my doc files and pic files after my windows upgrade and scanned them in stopzilla. No problem. I also downloaded a trial of photoshop, but now it is also gone. Also, all of my personalization has reverted back to the default settings this happened overnight. How/why did this happen?

Pre Installed Program Missing Files

My new computer was a christmas gift. It's a dell laptop inspiron 1545, with windows 7 os. It came with windows works pre-installed on it. It seems as if most of the programs are working correctlly, except for the calendar. A message pops up stating that it can't access one or more of the files necessary to open the calendar, and then advises me to reinstall "works". I'm hesitant to try this for several reasons.

1. , I don't want to void any warranties

2. , I'm just beginning to learn my way around computers, and windows 7 is totally new to me (i was using windows xp, and not with any expertise)

3. , I really don't want to uninstall and reinstall the whole program when it appears that just one part of it is not working.

4. , I don't have a printer currently accessible, so it's difficult to follow any lengthy instructions. Is there any fast and easy cure to fix this problem? Or any help you can suggest to a relative idiot? Just out of curiosity, it seems that the calendar on windows live is working, can i just copy or move it to works?

Restored Files From Recycle Bin Are Missing

New computer, ended up with a lot of duplicate files under my itunes library (don't worry, this is not an itunes question!) But they weren't really dupes, they were the same song showing up twice (same path and everything). So, i did a test run on one set (2 of the same song) and deleted them to the recycle bin. Of course, only one song truly was deleted and i restored it and added it back to itunes without issue. (I had to do a search for the song but i found it easily and it was a breeze to add back to itunes).

So, i brilliantly selected all the offending dupes and put them in the recycle bin. I restored them all and now when i do a search, i find nothing. I know what songs to search for and they aren't anywhere on my hard drive. I'm aware that what i did probably (or obviously) wasn't the right thing to do but too late for that now. Any ideas on where the files could have gone and how to get them back?

Missing Storage Files In Live Mail

We recently upgraded to windows 7 and things were running smoothly until today when our storage files disappeared. This has happened before but i simply had to click on edit > move to folder and this caused the move box to appear with the list of the storage files. Now this doesn't happen any more and i have no idea how to get the storage list and the files contained therein back to their rightful place. The settings in layout for storage files show to display them. We have not changed our security in any way.

Dll Files Missing / Computer Is Frozen

I would really appreciate help with the following issue:after downloading software online while using up-to-date kaspersky anti-virus and windows 7, windows indicated that dll files were missing. I did a full scan and it said it had identified several trojans and virusses. Starting up is no problem and i do see my desktop, but can't open any programs other than the kaspersky anti-virus. It says that grooveuntil.dll is missing and some more dll files. I tried to boot up through my windows 7 dvd, but it won't let me access any drives. Also, i can't open web browsers to download recovery files. In the mean while i am using a separate computer. What to do?

Cd/dvd Drive Has Gone Missing

I have a new computer with windows 7 professional 64 bit and everything was fine but now my cd/dvd drive has gone missing. It's nowhere to be found in explorer and if i insert a cd or dvd nothing happens. I tried the troubleshooter but it tells me i don't have a cd/dvd drive. It's also not listed in device manager. I'm a complete non-techie type of person but was wondering if my drive has just gone kaput or maybe one of the leads internally has become disconnected. The computer is only about 3 months old. I have done all the updates that have been recommended. I would love it if someone could give me some ideas about fixing this.

Missing A Partition On 2nd Drive

I purchased a new w7 pc. I added the hd from my old pc as a second drive. This hd had been partitioned to a c, e and f drive. However, i can only see the old c & e partitions (now with drive letters e & f). I can't see the old f drive which contained all my burned cd's. The entire hd is 160gb and windows explorer shows the e&f drives equaling about 150gb, which would be correct with the typical loss of some gb's. Does anyone have a suggestion as to what i can do to see the old f drive? Thank you.

Cannot Access Cd/dvd Drive Missing

Hp dv6646us laptop upgraded to windows 7 - retail version 3 or 4 mos ago just noticed my cd/dvd drive is missing, it is not listed under the device driver i tried several online fixes to no avail. I plugged in my flash drive which is usually drive g and the drive g flash shows up and the cd/dvd drive e, also ! But the drive e (cd/dvd) shows the flash (again) as the subdirectory.

The usb flash drive works fine and is accessible but even though the drive e (cd/dvd) shows up in the device manager (when my flash is plugged in) i can not access the cd in the drive i am somewhat computer literate but afraid to mess with too much that i don't know anything about.

Ntldr Is Missing After Added Second Drive

I just did a fresh install of windows 7, restored everything and all appeared to be working until i added a second drive. On restart i received the ntldr is missing. With the recovery, i tried the automated. Which said there were no problems. Tried to restart, same issue. With recovery cdin the drive, but not using it to start (no key press), windows boots normally.

Tried bootrec from the recovery cd. No success. /Fixmdr does not solve. /Fixboot does not solve/rebuild bcd does not solve/scanos reports 0 (zero) installationshttp://support.microsoft.com/kb/927392and then, the one d ten t (1d10t) between the chair and the monitor checked the bios settings. The boot order in the cmos setting set the new drive as boot. I know there is a moral to the story.

Cd-dvd Drive Missing Or Not Visible In Computer

Latest version of cdrom.sys driver is correctly installed and detected in "device manager". Reinstalling is not helping. High-low filters solution does not apply. Filter are not present. When opening the key with regedit. Window 7 automatic troubleshooter detect the problem with the statement "the drive is not assigned a drive letter" but cannot assign a new letter.

"Computer management" detects the cd drive but the drive letter is missing and the assignment a new one is not allowed: when trying to assign a new drive letter manually, the new letter assigned shows in the screen for about one second and immediately disappears again. Different drive letters have been tried in case standard "e" could be somehow locked by some other software or virtual disk.

Using "computer management" i can mount the cd drive it in a folder in other hard drive and explore/operate cd contents without problem. I am using this for the time being as a temporary solution for having access to information in my cds/dvds. This is happening in asus k52jr laptop with windows 7 home premium-64. Dvd-cd driver is a hitachi hl-dt. St dvdram gt30n.

Jump Lists Not Working

I have been using windows 7 for quite a while now without problems. I have pinned word, excel and other programs to my task bar. I have been able to pin documents to these programs as well. When i right click it pops up the pinned and most recent. Yesterday, excel decided that it would not do this anymore. I cannot pin anything to the program in the task bar and it does not show history. My word program works fine as well as the other programs i have pinned to the task bar. How do i fix this? It is quite annoying as it takes a few minutes to open excel files by going through "my computer. ".

Jump Lists Problem

Pinned items on internet explorer and windows media player jump list for at least the past month or so, i have been unable to pin any links to the internet explorer 8 jump list nor the windows media player 12 jump list. Additionally, on the windows media player jump list, the frequent items list has stopped showing.

My computer is a sony vaio running windows 7 home premium 64-bit. And let me know if any additional details are required from me to fix the problem.

Jump Lists No Longer Working

My jump lists no longer work in windows 7 32 bit edition. For instance, the windows explorer icon pinned to the taskbar no longer displays recently opened folders when i right click on it. Likewise, with recently opened files in word 2010, sites in internet explorer and opera 10. 5. I've gone into the settings under the taskbar and start menu properties to ensure that "store and display recently used items in the start menu and taskbar" is enabled.

I also have the "number of recent items to display in jump lists" set to 10 (which is the default). But windows does not seem to be keeping track of the files and folders i open. Word 2010 lists recently opened programs perfectly in backstage view. Any ideas about how to get my jump lists working again?

Jump List Removal Or Hotkeys

The jump list feature is nice but it is missing the hot-keys. I've been in the habit for years of right-clicking a taskbar item and hitting 'c' to close the window. This worked fine until the jump list showed up. What i'd like to do is either enable the hot-keys (so that pressing c then closes the window) or eliminate the jump list (not just the most recently used items, i mean get rid of it completely and replace it with the normal right-click menu, the one that shows up when you ctrl-shift right-click the task item).

Tasks In Jump List Are Not Working

None of the task in the jumplist of the taskbar are working. For example, "private browsing" and "open new tab" in internet explorer, "play all music" in window media player or "sign in" and "go to msn" in window live messenger. When clicking on any of the tasks, they all open a window explorer(c: windows/system32 ). However, the frequent, resent, and pin in the jumplist work fine. My laptop is using window 7 home premium 64-bits.
