Attaching A Picture In Outlook

I can open my pictures directly from the start button. I see all my photos and it says there are 2 locations. C:usersname my pictures and c:userspublic my pictures. I can navigate from the computer prompt to either of these directories. They both show up and i can access the photos. The problem. When i am using outlook and try to attach a picture, i navigate to c:usersname but there is no my pictures folder showing?

Alternatively, i can also open documents from the start menu and there are 2 folders listed as my pictures. I am denied access to both. I am logged on as administrator and the permissions seem to be set to allow me access. On my other pc, i see the same thing (2 folders), but i can access the folder that is showing as a shortcut.

I don't know if these situations are related, but i'm stumped right now on getting outlook to browse to a folder that i can access my pictures from. Any help will be appreciated.

Folder Picture Customization

I have windows 7 professional running upgraded from xp home. We have music on an external hard drive and on the computer. On both the external and the internal hard drive all our folders we had customized with the cd cover on the folder. It stayed present on them for about 3 weeks then out of no where most of the customizations fell off. This has happened with xp twice and now with windows 7 pro. I have been searching to figure this out and am at a loss. I really like the way the folders look with the cd cover on them, but dont want to constantly fix them. I have over 800 folders with cd covers on them. I need help.

Picture Import Settings

I want to change the import settings for my canon camera when importing photos using windows 7. I had already managed to do this once but want to adjust the settings again. However, when i connect my camera to my pc, it automatically starts importing photos based on current settings with no option to change.

The above is from another thread regarding the same problem i have. The dialog box with "import settings" flashes, then goes away before you can make changes. The person above was given a link to a boilerplate answer that doesn't address the problem.

I'm using windows 7 home premium and i'm having an issue with the user account picture.

Desktop Picture Change To Black

Why does my desktop picture change to black. I know i don't have it set to change every so many minutes because i've not set that and it also just goes to black! My aunt's computer with windows 7 does the same thing. I've not been able to figure out why this happens. I can set a desktop theme even, download one from the internet, the wallpaper is set to whatever the theme sets it to, looks great, then within about 10 minutes or so, pow! The background goes to black! Any idea why this happens?

Excel Insert Picture Does Not Display

We have 2 identical dell systems, one with xp and one with windows 7, both running office 2007. When i create an excel document on the windows 7 system and use the insert picture option, the document will open on other systems but the picture does not display (just the outline of the box). If i create this same document on the xp system everyone can open the document and see the picture. The file is being saved on a server running windows server 2003. Even systems running windows 2000 can open the xp version of the document. I don't know how to solve this problem other than to downgrade to xp (not a pleasant experience).

Picture Slide Inside Of Folder

On windows xp there was a way to make a picture slide inside of a folder. So what it would look like is. Say you have 10 pictures inside a folder. Upon opening that folder. There would be one big picture in the center of the screen, and underneath were tiny icons of all your other pictures. And all you had to do was click the left or right button to browse through them. Or simply click on another picture to view it.

Is there a way to do this in windows 7? Or am i stuck with just large icons and the slide show option?

Media Center Live Tv No Picture, Just Sound

The live tv function in media center gives me a message that says "your tv does not allow display of this program through the dvi input source. Please choose another tv input source. " I can only hear the sound but there's no.

My tv tuner is a ati theater 650 pro. It is connected to my cable box through s-video. My tv is also connected to the cable box through hdmi cable. The weird thing is, the message disappears and picture finally shows up when i unplug the hdmi cable from my tv or from the cable box itself. The picture also shows up when the tv is turned on. When i first configured this, i was able to successfully see picture, sound, and even tested the recording capabilities with no problem. I tried to reconfigure the tv signal in media center several times and updated the tv tuner's drivers but to no avail.

Message - No Disc In Drive - Can't Burn Picture Cd

I selected about 40 pictures from a gallery folder to burn to disc. I get a window that opens and says "files waiting to be burned to disc" followed by a list of the selected image files. I click 'burn to disc', and am prompted to put an empty disc into the cd-rom drive. After i do, and after closing the drive door, i get a 'checking disc' msg. In the window. In a few seconds the drive door opens, and i see this message: "there is no disc in the cd or dvd burner".

"Please insert a writable disc into the d drive". This drive plays discs fine, and i had no problems burning when i used vista, but after a hd crash, i upgraded to win7 and this is my first attempt at making a disc. Is there some compatibility issue here?. Device mgr. Says the device is working. The driver is up to date.

Setting Live Mail Program As Default Program

I am trying to set windows 7 live mail program as a default program. It does not show up as an option on my "set default programs list". I know that i have it because i am using the program. Where else can it be? I asked this question earlier in the context of trying to attach smaller picture files to an email. I followed the written instructions in the help section and those of the person who replied to my earlier question(ramesh). They both said to select live mail from the default programs list-but as i said before it is not on the list. Do you have any other suggestions?

Can I Delete Program From Program-files (x86) Directory ?

Why is windows media player in the program files directory (i assume for 64 bit programs) and also in the program files (x86)? It runs ok from either. Can i delete it from (x86) and other duplicates as well? I also note that office 2007 seems to be in the (x86). Does that mean it is not a 64 bit program?

How To Move Program, Program(86) Data Folders ?

I'm going to install win 7 64-bit on a 64 gb ssd and i want my program files to be on my hdd or my d:/ drive. I've read a few articles that contradict each other - one that states to use a registry change, a microsoft article that states ms doesn't support such a registry change, and a suggestion that all one need do is to change the drive letter on the installation of the program.

I'd appreciate it if someone would help me understand the best way to change the location of my program files. I am also concerned about leaving my temp, tmp, and perf files on the ssd. Should those be moved? And if so, what might be a good way to do this?

Install 32-bit Apps To Program-files Rather Than Program Files (x86)

On 64-bit win7, is it wrong to install 32-bit apps to (drive letter):program files rather than program files (x86)? If wrong should installer prevent this? If installer allows it, what app behavior is appropriate?

Background: winzip 14. 0 (a win7 compatible 32-bit app) won't run if installed to c:program files. If installed to any other alternate path or folder name it runs ok. By convention starting with vista, c:program files (x86) is for 32 bit apps and c:program files for 64-bit apps. But installers allow overriding the install path and folder name. e.g, maybe i want 32 bit apps in c:program files and 64 bit apps in c:program files (x64).

If c:program files is a restricted location for 32 bit apps, should not the installer and/or os enforce this, rather than allow installation then break the app? What is the correct practice for both users installing apps and developers porting apps to win7?

Custom Install - Program-files And Program Files X86

Custom install from windows vista hp 32 bit to windows 7 hp 64 bit leave 2 program files - "program files" and "program files (x86). Mostly same files in either folder. If x86 is needed, i don't mind but why duplicate entries with items like windows mail. I tried to to delete program files x86 without any success, and i would like to delete system-32 files in the windows folder plus any other 32 bit related items, if possible.

I do not want a system with duplicate and redundant files. Because two items that i downloaded and installed appear in both program files, i'm suspending any further actions on the installation until i'm fortunate enough to receive some help and/or advice from this forum.

Do You Want The Following Program To Allow Changes To This Computer

I always get message "do you want the following program to allow changes to this computer?" When starting mozilla thunderbird after upgrade from vista to windows 7 home premium. I have changed the "privilege level settings" of thunderbird to "run this program as administrator", but it still makes me log on as administrator every time i start thunderbird to see my email.

This is not only annoying (i.e. Having to login as administrator every time i start thunderbird), but also prevents thunderbird from starting when accessed, for example, from "windows photo viewer" email button (apparently, it tries to start thunderbird, but doesn't have enough permissions so fails).

I don't get this with any of my other applications (e.g. Firefox, etc. Run fine without requiring me to logon as administrator). I'm not sure if i have installed thunderbird odd, or did something else different, but this never happened to me in vista. I don't want to remove all uac security for all programs. What can i do?
