Full File Address In Folder Explorer Bar


How to show full file address in folder explorer bar in windows 7? Is it possible to make the address show similar to xp (c:program filesadobe. )? It's extremely confusing as it is now, especially when in a mapped drive (i would expect the base level to show the mapped drive rather than "computer").

Explorer Restarts When Folder In Full Screen

I have noticed that when i expand a folder to full screen view and then close it more often than not windows explorer comes up with the windows explorer is not responding and then restarts windows explorer. Everything else works ok and if i view a folder thats not expanded to full screen that works ok everytime. I have downloaded the latest video drivers today which has no effect. I have used auto-runs to play with shell extensions that has no effect.

I have tried it in safe boot mode with all but microsoft services disabled and it still happens. I can run apps in full screen and they work ok. The event log for one of these failures is below. Can anyone throw some light on this.

Address Bar Searches Ask.com Instead Of Going To Site

Sometimes when i type in an address to my address in ie 7 or ie 8 i end up at ask.com. This is especially weird since i have disabled all search engines i am not interested from the manage add-ons window and it bothers me more than ask.com wasn't there to remove and yet it's there in my address bar. In ie 8 the new link system show ask.com at the bottom of the list just begging to clicked on. I keep my virus checker and microsoft's windows defender up to date and neither has picked up any thing to suggest this is a virus or trojan.

Delete History In Address Bar

I have a sony vaio. It has vista home. I have an item (site)  with accompanying info (images). That seems to be embedded in the history at the address bar. When i try to delete them it is still there. I have tried through control panel, safety and also the tools button. All these methods work to delete all the other history but this one site and its accompanying images. I'm not real knowledgeable with computer but i'm trying. I think i have read in forum of similar (i think?) Problem. Can someone walk me through solving this?

Turn Off Search In Address Bar

I recently downloaded the latest windows update, which in turn updates internet explorer to 8. What i absolutely loved about ie is that i could just type something in the address field (without adding ".com") and it would automatically pull up the website. Saved me a lot of time and loved the functionality of it. Now that it's been updated, i can't do that anymore. Ie8 automatically pulls up google search instead of just loading the page. Is there any way to turn this feature off? It slows my work down. And little minutes each time tends to add up.

Explorer And Browsers Windows Scroll Bar Issue

All windows programmes (such as browsers firefox, chrome, explorer) force the scroll bar to the bottom of the page and will not allow you to scroll back up. Even re-booting the machine several times does not immediately resolve the problem. All windows programmes force the scroll bar to the bottom of the page and will not allow you to scroll back up.

Even re-booting the machine several times does not immediately help. Environment using win 7 on a laptop (acer), with usb mouse. When the mouse is not used (i.e. Tracker pad is used) there seems to be a number of system freezes. We did not get these problems prior to windows 7 upgrade. The lap top is relatively new with 4gb ram.

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?

Explorer Searches Problem With Ordering Results By Full Path

Explorer searches no longer (i.e. Since xp) seem to allow ordering results by full path in the folder column. Open explorer, browse to "c:", search for "*. *Proj", lots of results, "folder" column (which used to show whole path logically) now shows last folder then first to last-but-one folder (e.g. "Aardvark(c:program files)"). This means that i cannot get a logical order when i order by this column. Very annoying when trying to find visual studio projects on my machine.

This sucks! I realize this is probably by design since the addition of libraries but it means that i have to reboot to ubuntu to do this type of search ordering now (pain!) If anyone knows a way around this to put folder as e.g. "C:program filesaardvark"i will be very grateful.

P. S. Please drop ntfs asap. Linux uses a modern file-system (ext4:2006), solaris uses a modern file-system (zfs:2004 - loved by codeproject.com) please don't keep using this slow and bad filesystem - the little improvements each year since 1993 are really started to seem sad and ineffectual.

File Crashes Explorer

A file i have been downloading for a game via bittorent (legal mod for a game) that i was re downloaded to play with friends has been giving me some trouble. It started with bittorrent locking up when trying to check the files after i re started it, so i thought it was the program and uninstalled it and went to delete the 2 files i was downloading. When i try to delete the files it would bring up the recycle task bar and start locking up my computer and eventually crash explorer, even after that i can hear my hard drive making noise so i ran virus scans (avg), hijack this, ccleaner, seagates hard driver check (to see if it was dieing).

And nothing came up. I know have the two files sitting there and if i do anything to them, try to move them, right click them, etc explorer will freeze and crash. And even after it comes back on i can hear my hard drive accessing data or trying to do something. So my best guess is the files got corrupt during the download when i stopped the download and for some reason wont allow me to touch them. Any ideas?

X86 File - Internet Explorer 8 Will Not Work

I have recently bought windows 7 and installed it and i have ran into a few problems. First my system is a 64-bit system and i have x86-files.

1) here is my main problem internet explorer 8 will not work when it is started from the x86 file. However, if i start internet explorer from my x64 file it will work correctly.

2) i have no idea how to uninstall the x86 file of internet explorer 8 so that i can reinstall it. When ever i attempt to uninstall it tells me that trusted installer is stopping me.

More information. I have other programs saved on x84 files and they work fine example: microsoft office, adobe, etc. So i'm wondering if there is not a problem with the internet explorer 8 file.

Here is my question how can i uninstall the x84 file of internet explorer so that i can reinstall it.

I found out some more information. I found out how to turn ie8 but i still dont know how to uninstall the program here is the website that showed me how to turn it off: www.Digitaltech.co. Cc/504/how-to-uninstallremove-internet-explorer-8-from-windows-7-build-7048/

Replacing Explorer.exe File For Themes

I downloaded a new theme for windows 7, however, i am nervous about replacing the explorer.exe file as instructed. By default, i would think that's a bad idea. But since i'm still learning my way around windows 7, i'm not sure if this is supported as i can't seem to find anything on microsoft's site saying that it's acceptable or not. Has anyone done this when installing new themes in windows 7?

File Download Search In Folder

I use windows 7 ultimate. Firefox latest version. I download music preview files, alot and i want to find a way to better short my file during download. e.g. Axwell - take this ( dj remix )

That is a song name. I have a music folder with many subfolders ( their name are based from source of download or genre ) my problem now is a have multiple ''double'' / alot of same songs in different folders, which take too much hdd space.

When i click download, i have a pop up window, ask for ''save as'' it direct me to my music folder, now i can see if i already own the file if it's written exactly the same (ask to replace file). But when i am into a sub-folder i dont know if i already have it in music main folder or another music subfolder. ( Lets say, im into c:/music/electro , i want to know if i already have that song in c:/music/house or c:/music or all sub-folder in music without having to look every folder before download. )

Do you understand my request? Is their such feature in windows 7?

Explorer Will Not Copy 8gb Iso Image File To External Drive

Windows explorer will not copy an 8gb iso image file to an external drive with 185gb of free space says file is too large for the destination file system. I tried copying an 8gb iso image file to an external drive with 185gb of free space and windows explorer keeps giving me the message "file is too large for the destination file system".

Then i tried copying the same file to a separate partition on my hard drive and it worked smoothly. I also tried copying a folder containing the sae content and about the same size and it also copied easily. I don't understand why it will not copy the 8gb iso file. By the way i am using windows 7 ultimate.

Error - File Or Folder Open Or In Use By Another Program

I am using windows 7 64-bit on an asus laptop, and recently ran into a strange problem. I have a shared hard drive on a desktop pc that stores all of my working files. I often work from the laptop across my wireless network, working on files stored on my desktop hard drive. The desktop is running win xp professional.

When i try and move a folder on the desktop hard drive using the laptop running win 7 i am getting the error"file or folder open or in use by another program, please close the program and try again"
The files are not open on the desktop or elsewhere on the laptop either, but nothing i do seems to unlock these files so they can be managed remotely from the laptop across the wireless network.

I found one forum post that said something about having to unlock the permissions for the file in windows 7? Is this the problem? And if so, how would one go about doing that? I have checked the permissions of the folders themselves, and they are set to full read write access for everyone, so i don't know what i could possibly change. This is a very annoying glitch, having to go to my desktop every time i need to move or delete a file from my shared hard drive!

Also i have had no problems in the past w/ my previous two laptops managing files across my network on this particular desktop drive. Those were running win xp home and media center edition.

Folder / File Permissions In Properties Tab

I have a particular program that will not start because i do not have write permissions for the folder, sub-folders, and files associated with the program. Going to the properties tab reveals that the folder is read only. I uncheck the box but can't seem to make it a permanent change. It always comes back up as read only. I have gone into every imaginable edit/advanced tab possible and given permissions to every possible group i can think of, yet despite the fact that every kind of permission possible is enabled and visible, i still can't uncheck the read-only box permanently and i still get "you do not have write permissions" from the program. I have tried changing ownership, running as administrator, and yet no progress on this problem.

Can't Open Downloads Folder, File Does Not Have A Program Associated With It

"this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the default programs control panel". As far as i can tell, all my other folders open up fine. Last thing i did was trying to download some software that would gradually turn my volume down so that i could fall asleep to it. It didn't work (older software, seemed like it wasn't compatible with windows 7) so i deleted the application and the installer which were located in my downloads folder.

Editing Xml File In Program Files Folder

I have a .net program that reads an xml file located in the application startup folder. Under windows xp, i can simply go in and edit this file to change settings, etc. In windows 7, it is driving me crazy. It looks like i am editing it (running notepad as administrator) and writing the file back to the folder. But then i start the program, and the settings remain unchanged. I've even tried deleting the xml file completely to no avail - the program should give me an error if the file cannot be found (it does this correctly under xp), but it somehow seems to find the original file even though i cannot see the file in windows explorer or find it from a dir command in a dos box.

.xml File Located In System32 Folder, Is Not Recognised

I have a problem concerning an xml document and windows 7 system32 folder. I have recently installed the latest driver for my nvidia graphics card and one of the files it loads is nvapps.xml into the windows7 system32 folder. I also use a programme called nhancer which modifies the nvidia programme for the benefit of ms flight simulator x (my hobby).

I now find that nhancer cannot load because it cannot find the nvapps.xml file in system32. If i highlight the nvapps.xml file in system32 and press open or edit, i get the message which says :- windows cannot find "c:windowssystem32nvapps.xml". Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. (Actually, i get this message three layers thick on the screen (i.e. I have to acknowledge it three times before the message disappears from the screen)). I have found that there are ten *.xml files within system32 and five of them produce the above message and the remaining five all open easily and correctly. Of the five that windows cannot find two of them are associated with the nvidia driver and the other three are not in any way connected with that driver. I have also found that if i copy the nvapps.xml file to a different folder or hard drive, then i can open or edit it quite normally and without difficulty. I would be grateful for any advice or comment that about my problem.

Folder Access Denied - Cant Delete Folder

You'll need to provide administrator permission to delete this folder

Continue skip cancel

- I click continue and i get:

Folder access denied

You require permission from laptop/chris to make changes to this folder

Try again cancel

- I am laptopchris! (My username is chris on the login screen so i presume i am laptop/chris). Do i have to have permission to do something on my own computer? It's my computer! Im a newbie when it comes to windows 7. Windows 95, 98, 98se, me, 2000, xp im more advanced in, with vista im slightly there.

I have tried numerous attempts at the silly take ownership thing but it seems to have failed. The message i get up when applying the new settings is:

Error applying security information to :

This is rather frustrating - am i doing something wrong? Would someone please provide simple, easy to follow, accurate steps to take ownership and provide me with a solution or better, a fix, if this doesn't work?

Language Bar Changes Itself

The language bar randomly changes the language from us english to chinese for no particular reason, it also changes the keyboard input from us to multilingual canada, (which isn't that bad, you just lose out on most of your punctuation) has anyone else encountered this problem, i can change it back, it's just annoying when your typing and then you look at the screen and somewhere halfway through it you see that the language changed without any intention.

I can change it back but every couple days on the 3 computers i have purchased win7 for are having this issue, so i know it's not a hardware issue.

I cannot install the bing bar on my windows 7 pc. The install completes halfway and then closes with no error or finish installed message. I open ie8 and it's not there.

Also, deteled windows temp folder, cleared cache, cookies, disable add-ons. I can install the windows live toolbar successfully. Other programs install fine as well.

Any ideas?

Bing Bar Has Encountered An Error

Error code 400 then error code 1000 then just the "bing bar has encountered an error. Please close all browse". For at least the past three weeks i have been getting a message every time i open ie8 in windows 7 x64-bit.initially it said that the bing bar had encountered an error and listed error code 400. Then later that changed to error code 100, and now it just says that "the bing bar has encountered an error. Please close all browse" with only the help circle to the right.

It no longer shows the temperature either. I have written many times and have yet to get an answer or any suggestion as to how to correct the situation. The bing search page still opens normally and performs searches as it should. I'm getting very tired of this and want it to be corrected. I have tried closing the browser many times as well as every night.

Scroll Bar On Photo Viewer

How do you enable/show the scroll bar on the windows photo viewer? I am using two thinkpad t400, one running vista and the other is 7. On the vista machine, when i open up a large photo, the scroll bar will appear so i can go to the top or bottom quickly. On 7, that scroll bar disappeared. Is there a patch i can apply to get it back? It seems it is not in the option or settings. This is really painful because i have to deal with large pictures. And i've been going back to the vista even if i hate it so much.
