Favorites Adding


Before i downloaded this new version i was very content with the fact that next to my favorites star button another star button with a plus for easy adding without having to open the annoying favorites menu for adding. Giving that option back to us, well me since i loved the option so much, would be absolutely great. And no i don't like that new option that goes with the star button that has the arrow, hate it. I would like to put the adding favorites button back into my toolbar, not going to the menu.

Adding Comments To A File

In xp using the "details" file view, a right click in the columns heading area would bring up a list of possible columns, then selecting the comments field there would place that column on the screen. This is also possible with win7, so far so good.

Then in xp one could add a comment to a file, (for almost any type of file in any folder), by right-clicking the file and selecting the properties option, then by selecting the summary tab one could type a comment and it was displayed in the comments field on the screen for the file. This worked for almost all file types and was very useful when the filenames were at best un-descriptive, (most of the time).

In win7 it appears this is not possible for almost allfile types, very disappointing! Is it doable?

Adding Data Hdd

I have just installed windows 7 ultimate 64 bit on a new hdd - the installation went perfectly. I now want to add another hdd (internal), to use as a data drive. I have been using this drive to store all my data from another installation of windows 7 (32 bit). Whilst i can see all the folders, when i attempt to open some folders (but not all) to access files i receive a message saying i don't have permission. I am the only person using the computer, i.e. I have no additional profiles or anything.

How can i fully access this data drive, with full read/write capability? I will also want to use the same drive when i use it with my windows 7 32 bit installation too. I imagine it is something to do with granting permissions or sharing, but i'm not sure what. Any suggestions?

Trouble Adding A Network Printer

I have a desktop and netbook. Both are running home premium. Desktop is 64 bit and netbook is 32 bit. The printer is a hp deskjet 6540. It is directly hooked up to the desktop through usb. I just installed home premium 32 bit on the netbook. Upon connecting to the internet. It seen my other pc and asked for the homegroup password. Put it in and i can see both machines. Now hp does not have the drivers for my printer. I got them through the windows update.

So when trying to add the printer on the netbook using the network selection. It sees my printer but gives me a pop up it tells me to install drivers or gives me a have disk selection. How can i do that though if i can only get them through windows update?

Strange Problem Adding Second Drive

I am trying to add a second seagate barracuda 7200. 11 1. 5 gig drive to my computer. I am running a cleanly installed windows 7 64 bit on an msi p55-gd80 mobo with 8 gig of ram. The operating system is installed on a western digital drive, and i already have a seagate barracuda 7200 installed as a storage drive (as well as a seagate freeagent usb external drive that functions normally).

When i added the second seagate 7200 drive and booted, windows went through 'installing device driver' and then informed me that the driver could not be installed; searching for a new driver proved fruitless. I found that if i unplugged the seagate that is already installed and plugged in the new drive, it would show up normally, and i was able to format it and assign a drive letter.

However, when i rebooted with both drives installed, only one shows up as a functioning drive. In device manager, the non-functioning drive appears under 'other devices' with a question mark as 'st31500341as ata device'. When i check its properties, it says 'the drivers for this device are not installed (code 28)'.

The irony of course is that some drivers must be installed because a single seagate 7200 will work. The other irony is that i actually have two new seagate 7200's that i figured i'd just connect and life would go on. Now i'd be satisfied if i could get only one of them to work alongside the one already installed. The drives must be functioning because i've formatted them both and copied files onto one of them when it was the only seagate installed.

Any ideas on what might be going on? Anything to try?

Buzzing Sound When Adding Applications

I have just upgraded my pc to win7 64 bit and for the most part very satisfied. Several issues are occurring since the upgrade such as:when accepting a download or installation of a new application my speakers will do a series of buzzing/humming noises (i am listening to itunes at the time)and then clear. Quite annoying when i first boot up about 10 minutes into the session i get a notice that there are mot enough resources to support the aero screen resolution and recommends to go to basic window 7 which does speed up the system. What resources are needed and how can i fix this issue?

Adding A Network Drive To Library In Win7

Adding a network drive to the library in win7, or adding media to the library from a nas. I have a nas drive (linkstation) that has all my docs, movies, pics on etc.

I used to change the location in vista of the default movies, pics and docs folders so if anyone wanted quick access from within win-explorer to these files they could click the locations under the usher profile. In win7 we now have libraries, i want to add my files to the libraries so users have access to docs etc quickly without having to navigate to the docs etc.

However if i try and add a folder to the library it tells me its not indexed and then if i try and add it to the index i don't have the network drives as an option. Is there a way in win7 to add remote repositories of data to the libraries?

Favorites Not Working

I have ie8, vista, for some reason, all my favorites are no longer working. Meaning. They all display on my favorites tab, but when i click on it, nothing happens. My history tab works, all the links open up as they should, however, the favorites do not work.

I have tried to restore ie default settings, i resorted back to ie7, i reloaded ie8. I have exported the links (all look fine on export) i have deleted all of them, i re-loaded them and no luck. I click on them, select the arrow to the right, and nothing.

Favorites Missing

Over the last 2-3 weeks all the links within ie8 favorites have disappeared. In fact when first clicking on favorites the following error message appears:

"Location is not available - c:users*name*musicfavoritesfavorites refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be in a hard drive on this computer, or on a network. Check to make sure that the disk is properly inserted, or that you are connected to the internet on your network, and then try again. If it still cannot be located, the information might have been move to a different location"

Subsequent clicking on favorites within ie8 then just comes up completely blank. I can find all the links within a favorites folder in the music folder location. I don't know why the favorites have been moved and how to rectify this. Any advice would be appreciated.

The problem is on a laptop running windows vista home premium service pack 2.

Adding Program Icon To Xp Mode App Menu

I installed an application w/in the xp mode virtual pc. After installation, there was an icon in the winxp application folder in my start menu. A few days later, i noticed it wasn't there anymore, but several other programs i had installed had icons there. I'm wondering if there is a tool that will allow an "after-the-fact" creation of one of these startup icons? I looked at the properties of the other shortcuts and see that it is pretty cryptic and contains a unique hex code, so i don't think this is something you can fat-finger.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. For the time being, i just uninstalled and reinstalled, but if it happens again, i'd like to save some time.

Ie8 Favorites Do Not Work

I have the following problems with favorites in ie8:

Adding a favorite creates it twice (once with the url as name, once with the page title as name)
Clicking on any favorite in ie does nothing (no error, no feedback)

Favorites can be deleted without problem
Opening the url file in explorer opens a print window (the print is empty)
Reinstalling ie8 had no effect and no spyware was detected by multiple scanners

Anybody have any clue what could be the cause of this?

Favorites Not Working In Ie8

I have an hp pavillion running vista. Recently the "favorites" feature stopped working. All my bookmarks are still listed but they do not work (and the little icons before the text are now just empty boxes). If i try and add a favorite, it won't be added. I have not added any new programs that i am aware of. Favorites just suddenly stopped working. The favorites folder still exists in my users directory. The registry address is %userprofile%. I have uninstalled and then reinstalled ie 8. I have reset it. I have run it without add ons. I have scanned the computer for viruses using norton 360. Nothing has worked.

Favorites Icons (favicons)

For each saved favorite in the drop down, a right-click to properties, then change icon, goes to a file containing only five preloaded generic other icons to choose from. Location: c:windowssystem32url.dll

So i want to design my own icons and tag them to various favorites (also perhaps on desktop). I also want to store them somewhere (if possible, add them to the same preloaded "library" at c:windowssystem32url.dll).

Can i do this? How?

Where Are Email And Favorites Stored?

My new computer crashed and is being replaced. I dumped the contents of the original hard drive to an external drive so i can retrieve some contents. I wish to retrieve my email contact list, my emails - in all their different folders, my internet websites and cookies which has all my logins and such. I wasn't able to do an easy transfer under the circumstances. Is it possible to locate these files and just copy them to the new setup? I would hate to loose all this information.

Saving Of Favorites Problem

In win 7-64, ie8, everytime i save a favorite, it saves two lines to the folder. One entry is the name i gave it. That entry will not open the site. The second entry is the complete link  it does open the site. For example:

Saved the following with the name i gave it:
Kitchen cabinet finishing

The second line, never adjacent to the first saved line was:
Kitchen-cabinets-and-hardware.com-kitchen-cabinet-finishing.html

The entry of the name i gave it is useless.

How can i solve this problem?

Problem Adding A Favorite Directly To Target Folder Selected

I just upgraded to ie 8, and i'm experiencing an irritating problem when having to add several websites to the same target sub-folder in my favorites. Maybe i've been spoiled by the convenience of an older version of internet explorer where the "add a favorite" pop-up would automatically be set to the subfolder that i had selected when adding another related website prior to the one at hand. I'm talking about the folder displayed where it says "create in".

That was a great function, because usually if i'm searching some information on a subject i want to add interesting websites one by one to the folder that i've specified for that subject. It's a time saver when the target folder is already set to the one that you've justset it towith your most recent add. Otherwise you have to go through all your folders and subfolders again to find the same target folder every time you want to add another website to that folder.

I know it doesn't matter to those people who just have a few folders. But if you use the internet as your own personal encyclopedia, creating folders and sub-folders for all the information that interests you, it's important to be able to navigate through it easily and save information easily in the right order and place. So my question is if there is any way i can enable that function by changing some settings perhaps? And how can i do that? Now it's just always set to the default folder"favorites".

Import Favorites Lost Their Icons

I recently installed a new workstation running windows xp sp3 and ie7 (as was my previous workstation1). Can't go to ie8 because it is not certified to run with my company's enterprise software.

I exported my ie favorites from the old pc and then imported them on the new one; all the icons for my favorite sites have changed to generic ones. Why did the icons disappear and how can i get them back to stay? I have visited some of the sites and sometimes the icon comes back and other times it doesn't. Also, the icons don't always remain. Sometimes, for no apparent reason when i launch ie, some of them are back to generic again.

Change Width Of Favorites Toolbar

When i open my favorites toolbar, it appear on the left side of my screen (where it should), but only as a narrow sliver. When i drag my cursor over the right edge of the favorites tool bar i do get a double-headed arrow, but it wont let me drag the favorites window to give a wider column-width.

Also, when i try to 'click' the double-arrow on the toolbar's right edge, the right edge of the toolbar disappears and/or shifts to the left edge of the explores window (so i'm not sure if i'm actually selecting or 'clicking' on anything) - when i let go of the mouse button, the right edge of the favorites toolbar returns to its too-narrow config. Any suggestions? I'm also not sure how/why my favorites toolbar shrank to its present too-narrow column-width (i don't think i set it that narrow - if i need it that narrow, i just turn it off)

Office 2010 Favorites Feature

I'm looking for a couple features in office 2010 (just upgraded from office 2003). The first features is saving favorites from excel and word. In 2003 i would save a file link from the network or my hard drive as a favorite in internet explorer. Thus clicking the favorite in i.e. Would open the excel or word file on the network drive. The second feature i'm looking for is how to modify and save an attachment from an email without sending it or doing a save as to the hard drive. In 2003 you could open a file and it save it without having to do a save as. Hopefully this makes sense. Am running windows 7 pro 32bit on a new system.

Delete Favorites Bar Folder

How do i delete the favorites bar folder? I'm trying to delete the 'favorites bar' folder from my bookmarks list in internet explorer 8, as it is redundant. I do not currently, and will never use it, and i also do not want it there. However, every time i delete it, it comes back a few minutes later. I've disabled the favorites bar via group policy editor, and i've tried a suggestion i found of setting the corresponding folder to hidden via windows explorer, then deleting the folder from my bookmarks, but it reappears a few minutes later. Is there any way of getting rid of this folder permanently?

Cannot Delete Folders In Ie8 Favorites

I have a new hp pavilion desktop (6gb ram, 1tb hd) which came loaded w/ windows 7 and ie8, version 8. 0. 7600. 16385, 64 bit edition. I'm trying to clear all folders and favorites from favorites so that i can import a fresh set from another browser. All went well until the last few folders. When i try to delete these, i get the following message: "could not find this item. This is no longer located in c:usersferdfavorites. Verify the item's location and try again. " This is followed by the name of the folder and the date created.

I followed all of the steps, including those in the link to the microsoft kb article, in the moderator's reply to w mayberry's post of february 20, 2010, "i've been having a problem organizing my favorites file" because it seemed like a similar problem. However, none of those steps have worked for me.

Just to make things more interesting, i got the following error message in trying to delete one of the folders (unsorted bookmarks): "an unexpected error is keeping you from deleting the folder. If you continue to receive this error, you can use the error code to search for help with this problem. Error 0x80070091: the directory is not empty" i searched on this forum for this error code, but got "no results found". I have no other problems with ie8. It works fine. This issue is more of an annoyance.
