Aero Snap Cannot Be Used For Viewing Two Excel Files


I am not able to arrange two microsoft excel files side by side using aero snap functionality. When i click on the stack in the task bar and select one file and drag to left to view half-screen, it displays good there. But when  try to select the second excel file from the stack on the task bar it basically replaces the one which i dragged earlier instead of opening some where for me to drag to right. Whereas i can do the same with two word files or other applications. Appreciate your help.

Aero Snap

My computer:windows 7-64 bit cpu: intel i7 memory: 8 gb display card: nvidia geforce 220 1 gb ddr color depth 32 bit wei score: 5. 9 held down by hdd score. I have been through everything in this webpage:http://www.Sevenforums.com/tutorials/3069-aero-snap-turn-off.html and cannot seem to get aero snap to work. I do not know if my video card is sufficient, but i suspect that it is as this computer is <1 year old. When i drag windows around, they just stay whenever i release the mouse button. Any suggestions?

Taskbar Aero Peek Not Working On Excel 2007

I'm having problems with aero peek for open windows on the task bar. Functionality works correctly for word 2007 but doesn't work for excel 2007. When you hover over excel icon on taskbar popup correctly show icons for open windows with titles but shows generic icon only - not preview of window. When you move over icon then excel window doesn't popup - only when you click on it.

I've tried using aero peek troubleshooter but doesn't find any problems. I've tried excel advance option for 'show all windows' but this doesn't affect problem either. Any suggestions advice appreciated. (Os windows 7 professional 64 bit - was clean install not upgrade)

Aero Peek Stopped Working For Office Excel

Aero peek was working fine on all my office 2007 products, and every other product / programme. Suddenly about 3 days ago the aero peek stopped working only for office excel 2007. There is no content in the preview (just all grey, blanked out) when you open up more than one excel window at the same time. When you close one, or all there is still no preview, even when you close all windows and are left with a single one.

The only time the aero peek works normal in excel is when you open up excel for the first time and only with that window. After that when you open up an additional window you encounter the above described problem. I have tried everything, going through all steps on the windows help menu, and the windows forums but nothing has helped.

How To Search Excel Files?

How do i search for excel files? I've tried searching for *. Xlsx. Ok, that's not supported anymore (apparently) as it returns no results (when there are clearly files with . Xlsx filename extension). So i finally figured out the advanced query syntax is ext: and tried ext:. Xlsx. This also returned no results. For some bizarre reason ext:.docx works but ext:. Xlsx (breifly) shows a message below the search field, "no filter matches"what does that mean?How do i search for excel files?

Ie7 Not Handling Excel Files Properly

With ie7 i am at a website where i can export an excel document. I had 2000 installed and didn't have this problem. I now have office 2007 installed and have an issue where it will give me a prompt stating "the file you are trying to open is in a different format than specified. " If i hit yes it will then give me a user login page as though i am just about to login to the website. However, if i hit no, it will prompt the same message again but with a different file name. If i hit yes to that it works fine.

If i try this through firefox, however, i don't have a problem at all which leads me to believe it's an issue with ie. I tried the registry hack to suppress the error message and when i do it'll simply open up an instance of excel with the user/pass dialog boxes asking me to login.

Cannot Open Or Save Excel / Word Files From Internet

Recently i have not been able to open or save any excel or word files from any website or yahoo e-mail. When i click on the file i get a pop-up asking to save or open and i choose one then i see the file progress, then then nothing. The pop-up closes and no file, opened or saved.

In the past i've been able to open and save both excel and word files but now i can't. I was on the phone for an hour with hp support and they were of no help. They had me delete my cookies disable add-ins and reset ie8, none of that helped. Any ideas? Is this a ms office issue or ie issue?

Network Viewing / Mapping

I have three wireless pc's. One uses w7 home and the other two use wxp. All can connect to the internet. When i open the network/sharing center on w7 and click on network, i am unable to see the two xp machines, unable to see shared, files, printers and can not use network map to diagram the network. All machines use the same workgroup name.

Downloaded the lltd responder for the xp machines (kbid=922120), rebooted and still not able to view them. There is a hotfix for these xp machines re: the lltd responder. Should i also apply that in addition to the previous cited downloads? Lastly, the lltd responder download is not for the w7 machine. Am i correct about that?

Downloading And Viewing A Pdf File

When i log into my utility provider web site to view my bill, internet explorer 8 opens a window and tries to down load the pdf file but just sits doing nothing. I have adobe reader 9 installed and if i try a different browser the pdf file is displayed correctly even with my anti virus active and i can print and save the file so the problem is obviously ie8. I have checked the settings etc but cannot see any thing obvious that is stopping the file from opening. Have tried shutting down my anti virus to see if this is affecting it but it has no effect.

Mouse Snap-to Default In Ie8

I'm trying to get the mouse to snap to the default button in ie8. I have windows 7 64-bit home premiere. Ie8 is 32-bit. I set the mouse properties to move mouse to default button, but it does not work. I checked the registry and the mouse snap to key =1. Is this a problem with ie8? It always worked in windows xp and earlier ies. I've changed mice from a usb wireless to a basic microsoft usb wired three button mouse. I tried updating the driver but windows says it's updated.

Compare Windows Snap Using Two Monitors

Using vista and xp pro, i would open two occurrences of windows explorer and manually arrange them to be viewed side by side, which allowed me to conveniently move files around.

Windows 7 automates that task through its snap feature, a feature that allows windows to be compared side by side by simply dragging an occurrence of the window to a side of the monitor.
I use two 24" monitors.

When i drag a window, such as a version of windows explorer, to the left side of the screen of monitor 1, it snaps perfectly into place and has a width of about 1/2 of the monitor on my left. That saves me a tremendous amount of time.

When i drag another window to the right side of monitor 1, it continues to travel to monitor 2. The window i wish to compare does not snap into place until it reaches the right side of monitor 2. Is there a setting that allows the snap feature to recognize i want the additional window to snap to the same monitor as the window snapped-to on the left?

Snap Feature Does Not Work On Inside Of Dual Monitor Setup

I have windows 7 home premium x64 fully updated. So far it's great. But i have two monitors, primary 1440x900 and secondary 1280x1024 with the secondary monitor on the right of the primary monitor. When i try to "snap" a window to the edge of either monitor that is next to the other monitor, nothing happens. I was wondering if this was a typical problem people were having or if it was just me and if there was any way to make it work or if there was a patch for it. (Google chrome's built-in "snap" feature can use the inside of the monitors).

Free Word And Excel

I bought a new computer, running windows 7. Problem is it didn't include any office programs. I would really like to have word and excel, but can't afford to purchase. When i look for a free download, a lot of alternate programs come up. I don't want to download inadequate programs. Does anyone know how to download word and excel for free, or some good alternate programs. I just need to write letters and sometimes make a spreadsheet that an be sorted.

Security Notice Excel 2007

Trying to refresh an excel report on a network drive. All works fine with win xp pro and office 2003 or 2007. Every windows 7 pc with office 2007 get the same errors. Don't feel that it is an office problem cause 07 works fine with not setup on all the xp machines.

First error i get is: ms office excel security notice. Mo has identified a potential security concern. The operation connects to an external data source. I click ok and this is fine. Second error pops up immediately. Ms office excel. The file could not be accessed. Try one of the following: (all of the following are correct. ) Ms wants me to check folder existence, read-
Only, make sure filename does not contain certain characters, and cannot be more that 218 characters long.

Third error: ms office excel invalid web query      

All i got, any ideas? I know all the errors came from excel but this works fine on all windows xp pro pcs, all we have changes is going with windows 7. I figure that something is checked not allowing to connect to external data sources in windows 7 or some security setting.

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).

Excel Documents Keep Moving On Desktop

I am running windows 7 64-bit, all recent updates installed, but this will probably work on most windows 7 machines. I do not have an english version of windows, but i'll try to explain reproduction. I like my desktop icons to be organized, so i do not use auto arrange. I group icons in my own specific way. The left side of my screen is almost empty. My problem is that when i edit an excel document that resides on the desktop, the icon moves to the default (left side) location of the screen. Here's how:

1. On your desktop, turn off auto arrange. (Right click on desktop -> menu "view" -> item "auto arrange")

2. On your desktop right click somewhere on the right side of the screen and create a new excel document. (Right click on desktop -> menu "new" -> item "microsoft excel-document").

3. Make sure the new document is not on the default location (left side) of the screen. If it is, goto 1 or try to drag it to the right side of the screen.

4. Open the excel document you just created, and save it (with or without editing). (Saving with ctrl+s, so not "saving as. ").

5. View your desktop again by closing or minimizing the excel document. The icon has moved to the default icon location. I have tried this with other documents, but only excel documents seem to be moving.

Excel 2007 Styles Reproducing

I have an excel spreadsheet with many macros and a lot of code automation. Periodically, when i go to use a style, i find that the custom styles menu has dozens, even hundreds of styles in it, with names like normal 1, normal 2, . Normal 5, normal 37. 1, normal 37. 2, etc. I can only delete them one at a time, but after i spend an hour clearing the list, they are back a few days later. What is going on?

I have written much of the vb code in the macros. I have not been able to pinpoint when the styles are being created, but i assume it is someplace in the code. Can anyone help?

New Word / Excel Docs Cannot Be Shared

My wife and i both have windows 7 laptops, in past months we could share everything through homegroup, i just tried to open my documents on her laptop through homegroup, [i wanted to share some folders on her laptop ] and they wouldn't open. I noticed that any docs that i created a month ago will open on her laptop, but  any docs i've created in the last month will not open.

The only thing i have changed on my laptop that i'm aware of is "auto recover", i changed it to every 5 minutes. When i try to open one of my doc's on her computer , a message comes up saying " access denied-contact your administrator". I can open and share anything from her laptop on mine through homegroup.

Excel Cell Colors Not Showing

Everything was working fine and suddenly i lost web page background colors and colors in excel 2003 cells; however, they do show in print preview. I received a couple microsoft windows 7 updates and a couple evga updates at the time the colors stopped showing. I removed these updates, but that did not fix the problem. Lost driver perhaps? Device manager shows everything is working.

Mouse Gets Stuck Randomly On Excel

At any point in time while switching sheets within an excel spreadsheet, the mouse gets stuck or when i click i get the window with the "close" option that is supposed to appear only when you click on the top bar. The same happened with a logitech mouse, changed to a ms and have the same problem. So far, no help from ms. I reinstalled drivers, changed batteries, click on both buttons at the same time, check usb drivers anything i could find on the web, but no luck. I cannot be the only one having this issue.

Difficult To Locate Excel File

Window 7: it is now more difficult to locate my excel file back when returning from other programs, i just start switching to window 7 from window 2000. I find that when working with many programs running on the desktop together with a few excel files open, it is now more difficult to return back to the last use excel file. One of the reason is that after clicking at the excel button on the task bar, i can see 4 to 5 minimized excel files, and always upon returning i have to search for the file and select the file all over again.

The conventional display of excel file listing only appears when open files are more than 6 or 7. Is there any option for the user to choose the conventional way of file display ? Also can window 7 be modified in such a way when returning it always go to the last use file?

Word And Excel Programs Locked For Editing

Word and excel programs locked for editing. Uninstalled microsoft office trial package as did not realize it was running. Purchased, installed and i thought activated office home and student 2007. Activate key in resources does not do this. Both word and excel are locked for editing.

I have now uninstalled the microsoft office trial package that came with the new computer, as i did not realize that it might be overriding the program.

Diagnostic etc run but to no avail.
