I'm attempting to change my default Documents folder to a separate folder I set up on my External Hard Drive, but having a lot of difficulties.

The way I wish to set it up is essentially just have my documents folder located on my external instead of the default, so that games/video recordings/anything else that auto-saves there will be saved and loaded from the location I want. I've tried using Symbolic Links and Hard Links, which may be able to solve my problem, except I'm not very educated on them and not sure if they're what I need. I've also changed the save folder in the documents properties to it, but that also didn't seem to achieve my goal.

If possible/necessary I'm okay with having things saved in both folders, I'd just like to be able to delete things off of my internal without worrying whether or not they're on my external. Saving to the external is the important thing, loading from it is wanted but not absolutely necessary.

I've experienced this problem twice in the past week. Here is my current problem:

New Windows 8 computer
Moved Office 2010 install from old computer to new computer
Copied all documents to new computer by installing the old drive in the new computer (NTFS to NTFS)

When trying to open any DOC, DOCX, XLS, XLSX, PPT, or PPTX files that are stored in the Documents folder I get permission errors. Word will open an RTF file just fine. If I try to use any Office programs to save a file to the Documents folder, I also get permission errors. I can move the file to the Desktop and work with it just fine. I can then move it back to the Documents folder.

Here are the errors when trying to open files:
Word - Word cannot open the document: user does not have access privileges
Excel - 'C:\Users\xxxxxx\Documents\Book1.xlsx' could not be found
Powerpoint - The path or file name for C:\Users\xxxxxx\Documents\Presentation1.pptx is invalid.

When I try to use one of these programs to save to the Documents folder, I get the following error:
You don't have permission to save in this location.

I tried copying the files two different ways to eliminate any lingering NTFS permissions. I used a linux box to copy from the old drive to EXT4, then to a linux formatted FAT drive. I plugged this FAT drive into the Windows machine and moved the files over but got the same errors. Next, I copied the files from the old drive to a FAT32 drive using another Windows box.

When I try to set that image as my background, the image is distorted. So I go into properties, and the image is no longer 1920x1080.

I saved a Jpeg image from a well-known wallpaper site recently. But now when I try to open the image, instead of image automatically opening with Windows Pic & Fax Viewer, my Nero programme opens it instead. When I was about to save the image in the first place I normally see all the other images I've saved. This time there was nothing, presumably because none of my images are saved using Nero.
So, how do I get this image to open with Windows instead of Nero ?

I opened an existing, frequently-used Word 2003 document which has images inserted, and they had disappeared, only the text remains and a box where the images used to be.

To test the problem I tried to insert an image into a new document (Word 2007, so that was .docx), and that did the same thing - placed a box the right size, but no image.

Any ideas why the documents are not displaying images when they did before, and how to get them back? Some setting has obviously changed but how to find out and rectify it?

I created a simple word file with some visual basic elements, with Word 2003: two text boxes, a command button, and two labels. The user is supposed to enter information in the text boxes, and watch the information appear in the labels when they click the command button. I got everything working with this simple code for the command button:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Label1.Caption = TextBox1.Text
Label2.Caption = TextBox2.Text
End Sub

I was happy. I saved the document, closed Word, and went for a coffee.... When I returned, I re-opened the file. I entered text into the textboxes, and hit the command button, though nothing happened. The labels stayed blank. I tried adding new functions, and editing the old one, and nothing worked. Do VB functions work one time only, when you create them? Or can you create them, save the file, and have it work in the future (I hope)?

Edit: I have attached the file I created.

A:Why User folder shows My Documents but folder location is Documents?

Hello pcwin,

The user folders that have "My" in the name are not actually named with the "My".

These are symbolic links, so when you name the folder "Documents", it will automatically rename and display as "My Documents", but in reality is still "Documents".

It can be a bit confusing.

Hi All. New user, first time post here. I've got a problem with Windows XP. So a friend of mine gave me a copy of norton ghost 2003 to try out. Well, it must have been a bad copy because when I tried to run it, the program just hung up and did not start the dos ghost, despite waiting for an hour. I shut off the power to the computer, and then it was stuck in this loop of going to pc-dos whenever I turned on the computer. It would not bypass this despite picking the option to skip ghost and go straight to windows. So, I had a new hard drive to put into the computer (which precipitated this whole ghost business in the first place), and i reloaded windows, which went fine. Everything is great now on my new larger hard drive, except that I can't get to the documents on my old hard drive. I put the old drive into an enclosure I had laying around, and I mapped to documents and settings, and then my user name, and it told me access is denied. I had the account password protected, and I know the password, but windows is not even asking me for a password. How do I get around this? Thanks in advance.

Okay, here's the rundown as best as I can remember it...

Several years ago (around 10, if I'm approximating), I purchased a slew of components and built my first computer from scratch. Since that time I have run through four power supplies. It seems as though some other component is causing these power supply failures. This is not the purpose of this post, however (but some back story).

Now, I am not the most technically savvy person in the world, and after the second failure, I took the computer to a "professional". While I don't know what he did in its entirety, I did notice a change that confused me. However, as I had decided to be an end user from this point forward and not a techie person, I didn't question it. The change... I could access the user account "Documents" folder from the "My Computer" window but not from within the "Documents and Settings" folder under the root directory.

In other words, if I were to double-click the "My Computer" icon, I would be given the usual options of hard disk drives and CD drives as well as the "Shared Documents" folder and the "_Username_ Documents" folder for the user logged in. (That would by Ahr Neely's Documents for the Ahr Neely user, and as there was only every one user created on the computer it was the only documents folder that should have existed.)

Just finished deleting the Dell partitions and programs from my laptop and using Easeus Partition Manager, resized the primary C:/ partition and created a second partition for data storage. (Now I know why they call it Easeus... It really is easy to use.)

OK, so having done all that, I rebooted and did some final cleanup, then went to the My Documents folder/properties and clicked "Move". designated the new target to be my new E:/ drive partition. Windows proceeded to move all my files to the E:/ drive. All went well and the files were there on the E:/ drive. The shortcut to My Docs in the Quick Launch tool bar also changed the target to the new location.

Now, what has me confused is the entire content of the my Documents folder is STILL on the C;/ drive as though I didn't change a thing I can open the documents just like always on either drive. Basically, the process didn't move the folder, it copied it. Kinda defeats the purpose of the whole process.

Any ideas???

I am new to Windows 7 so am still in the process of learning all the features. When I click on "Start" and then select "Documents", the Documents folder is listed under "Libraries". The computer defaults to the "Documents" folder and in the right pane is all the documents files I have on my computer ie, graphic photos, tax returns, business letters, ITunes music, pictures, Excel worksheets, Word Documents and on and on. It is as if someone took all of the documents out of their folders and arranged them side by side.

When I click on the arrow to the left of "Documents" then that folder expands to show "My Documents" and "Public Documents". When I highlight "My Documents" the same files appear in the same order

When I click on the arrow to the left of "My Documents" then the "My Documents" tree expands and each folder that I have in "My Documents" is listed. I keep all files in their own folder so nothing is loose.

I don't know why all the document files I have show in the right window pane. So what is the purpose of this type of view in the "Documents" folder where everything is shown? It certainly isn't convenient to scroll through 500 files to locate a document. If I want to view a business letter, I just go to the "Business Letter" folder in "My Documents" and view the file letter.

Problem I've not seen. I have a folder I use to collect files for a program. It is subordinate to My Documents. Three days ago it disappeared. It is not, however gone! I can put the path into the address line of Explorer (the files version - not the browser) and it magically appears. Also I can search and find all the files/folders in that folder individually by name with 'search'. I've set cursor on My Documents and opened >Tools>Folder Options>View and checked "Show hidden files folders and drives". I've tried this at various levels as well. I also ran a batch attrib e.g.:

@echo off
Echo This script will unhide all files in the current folder and all subfolders.
Echo If there are a lot of files, it may take some time to complete.
Attrib -H /S /D
echo Unhide Complete

This obviously ran for a few minutes from C:\

Wierd. I can get to the files, but the folder does not show up under My Documents as it should. I've tried to recreate the folder directly subordinate to My Documents, and get a warning that the folder already exists.
This is not a total loss since I can get to the folder, but would be nice to simply open My Documents, scroll down and find it.

Today I partitioned a hard drive for the first time. After partitioning, I tried to put some folders to the new partition by editing their Location in Properties. I did My Documents first, clicking move > E: instead of creating a new folder named My Documents, so E: became My Documents. I also moved My Pictures, My Videos, and Downloads folders inside E:, but remembered to make new folders for them inside E:. I decided I didn't want E: to be My Documents, and wanted it to exist inside E: as its own folder, so I did the following: right click E: > Properties > Location > Restore to default. After doing this, all of the folders inside E: went missing.

There is no My Documents folder inside the original user folder in C: drive. There is a Music and Videos folder, but when you try to click them, they say that they are not accessible, and say Access Denied. They also display 0 bytes of size when you view their properties. When I open a program such as Wordpad or iTunes, however, they can still access these folders through the Libraries tab. Even more confusing, according to the Libraries tab, these folders exist inside the original user folder in C:, but when I open this folder with windows explorer, I don't see them.

I've also tried right clicking the entire user folder and restoring a previous version of it. It didn't work.

My question is, how do I get back my folders, aside from copy pasting from the library?

A:[SOLVED] Problem with My Documents folder

Okay since I cannot find the edit post button, I will just update here:

I was able to change location of the Music, Picture, and Video folders from the Libraries tab. I successfully moved them to the E: partition. I did the same thing to Documents, and it said it did change location from C: to E:, but the folder is still not visible in E:. I even changed folder options to show hidden files, but My Documents is still "missing" even though it's there in Libraries. The weird "Music" and "Videos" folders with 0 bytes of space are still in the C:\Users\Admin folder though, and when double clicked they still say Access Denied, so that's weird. The Location tab in their properties don't exist, and I can't delete them either because I "require permission from the computer's administrator."

How can I get rid of these stupid security measures that I don't need?

A:[SOLVED] Can't access Documents folder

Hi, sounds like you are trying to access Documents and settings, that exist in Vista\Seven.
Actually, those "folders" are Junctions, or reparse points. You'll notice they have the Shortcut arrow on them. Their sole purpose is to redirect old programs that have the old locations hard coded, rather than using environment variables, to the new locations.
Open a Command Prompt, navigate to any folder containing a junction point, and type Dir /AL, and it will list the Junctions, and the location they point to.
If you want a list of all of them, run Dir /AL /S from the root of the hard drive (i.e., C:\)

You can't access them because the Everyone group only has permission to traverse the folder, and has a Deny permission set for reading/listing.
(thanks to Outcaste)

A:Solved: Documents Folder keeps on duplicating


This is more of a work-around than a solution, but it may be better than nothing. If you have your system set to not show hidden files, you can right-click on the folder, select properties, and check "Hidden". The folder will be still be there, but since it's empty it's not going to do any harm there, and as long as you're not set to view hidden files, you won't see it.

Problem is, the 'My Documents' folder has suddenly disappeared.

It is still on the desktop and I can access my work from there, but I would like it to appear back in 'My Computer' again.

I tried to copy and paste the 'My Documents' folder into 'My Computer' but that didn't work.

I also tried to drag it from the desktop into 'My Computer' but that didn't work either.

I have Windows XP Professional and am trying to copy images from a card reader to a folder on my desktop. I have been doing this for nearly 2 years, it is my job, and have never had an issue. Today when I went to load these images, the images numbers had completely changed. The normal format is DSC####.jpg. However, they now show up as 0001.jpg. EXAMPLE: I have image 6659, per the screen on my camera. This would normally show up as DSC6659.jpg when I open the folder showing the images on the disk (at this point I have not copied them over to a new folder). However, being that is the first number on this memory card, it renames itself to 0001.jpg when I view the images in the card reader.

My question is: Is this a Windows issue or a camera issue? What settings could have possibly been changed for this to happen? The camera is a Sony CyberShot H7.

No, there is no limitation of storage pertaining to a particular type of file.

Go into Disk Management via Computer Management/ Storage - right-click on My Computer, select Manage. Look at the area for the external HDD. What is the total size of the drive it reports? Does it have any partitions? Is it FAT32 or NTFS format?

Regards. . .

When I try to delete jpg images from 'my documents folder', the system makes a copy of the image I am deleting/have deleted. I have tried moving all the images to their own file, but the same thing keeps happening - the system just makes a copy of the image. I probably have about 100 jpg images that I want to delete. I am highlighting 10 to 20 images at once prior to deleting/moving the images.
I am using windows XP. Can you help me with this issue please.

Please answer fast!
Yesterday at night I upgraded to Vista (it's not the first time I do this), then I found that I can't open my documents folder.

I only see a shortcut at my user folder called "My Documents" (I think Music, Pictures, and Videos are inside there) with a generic folder icon, if I open this, I get that I don't have access to that folder, then when I try to get it, it says "Access denied- go to the Security tab". No, the Documents folder is not there. Only "My Documents" shortcut.

Well I open the Security tab, and I try to get ownership, but it says:
"You don't have permission to see the security properties for this object, you must try to get ownership, etc."
Below, it says:
Current owner:
and then It says below:
New owner:
Admininstrators (MHK-MACBOOKNANO\Administrators)

Well then I try to make me the owner again, but I can't, as it continues asking me the same, like:
1. I select Mhk from the New owner list, then I 'OK'.
2. I click 'Edit' again at the Security tab
3. I get the same window as before, telling me that I do't have the permission.

How can I solve this????

Short version of a long story. Due to multiple BSOD on friends laptop, I decided the best course of action to a non-destructive OS recovery. It is an HP DV6000 laptop running XP Home SP2 with 2 GB mem and a 100 GB HD.
The only thing he had on the machine that he didn't want to lose was about 32 GB of songs for his DJ business. Just to be safe, I copied then onto a networked pc for safe keeping. Hitting PF11 during reboot, took me to the OS restore screen. I proceeded through the restore and choose a different user nane than the original one he had used. This saved the files in the Documents and settings folder for the old user (that no longer existed). After the restore was done, I tried to copy the My Documents folder from the old user to the new user directory. No matter what I tried, I received the Access denied. I tried from a CMD Prompt. I tried using the ATTRIB command to look at the attributes. The only thing I could see was, on each directory (My Documents and below) the Properties window had the Hidden check box filled in, not checked, but filled in. I could not turn it off. I even tried to boot to safe mode and log on as Administrator, and got the same results. I ended up, going back and doing the destructive restore (format drived and factory reload) and then copying the files back from my network.

My question is, why couldn't I copy or delete these files even as administrator, and how can I correct this situation in the future, as I know this sam... Read more

Ok, I need some help..

I know that the documents library is a "library" and when I save anything there it really saves the file to the default location(my documents).

I teach a basic PC course usage course to seniors and some of the PCs are now listing the "My Documents" and the "Public" folders above their respective files when they click on "documents". In the past all the files have been there but never a separation by folder in the listing. There are 8 computers in the LAb and 4 show the "my Documents" and Public location in the listing....

How can I get this back to where they only see the whole list of files without the folder separation in the listing...

You may have to "associate" the JPEG format to the program you want. Assuming you are on PC platform, follow these steps:

1. Open Windows Explorer
2. On the menu bar, select tools, folder options
3. Click on the file types tab
4. Find the JPEG extension
5. Click on "change" button

A:Saving images as JPG. or BMP?

If you are talking about saving it from the web I don’t think your analysis is correct. It usually defaults to the kind of image it is. If you save a jpg as a jpg there is no additional loss as you aren’t really recompressing it. If you convert it to bmp you don’t get more quality in that case – just a larger file with some serious content limitations.

If it is saved on the web as a gif or bmp there would be some loss converting it to jpg, but you usually don’t have the choice. If it is on the web as a gif or bmp you can’t save as jpg. So the question is really moot for files that are in those formats.

There is a loss in versatility if you download a jpg as a bmp though. You get a bigger file with a lower color depth and no print size imbedded. There are many operations an editing program like Photoshop can not do with a gif or bmp. As a general rule I would say to always download as jpg if it is a choice between jpg and gif.

If you are talking about saving from an image editor or viewer then either format is bad. Save as tiff or png.

Hey everyone

I have a problem, its not a big problem, but its quite annoying. I regularly look at pictures on the internet and save them to my hard drive. Lately when I am trying to save the pictures, instead of the save dialog box coming up with the name of the picture already in the filename spot and the picture type selected, I am getting untitled in the filename, and it's always saving as a bmp. I can't change what file type I want to save it as, as there is only bmp in the drop down list. I can't remember when this problem started, but it is really annoying, and I have a feeling it's something simple that has been changed.

Following a crash, I put in a new hard drive, reinstalled Windows, re-created the User accounts. Well some of that I had help with!
I made three User accounts and the folders appeared in Documents & Settings, no problems.

A few weeks later I decided to add another User account. The account was created successfully but its folder never appeared in Documents & Settings. That was about a
month ago and it's just never shown up. The account itself works fine, as far as I know. This morning I created a second User account for this person, to see if it would place a folder in Docs & Settings. It still didn't.

Before the crash, I had all four people with four separate accounts, so having four User accounts has not been a problem previously. It's not a reboot issue, as I've rebooted numerous times since creating the person's first account.
Is there a way to force the User account folder to appear in Documents & Settings since XP won't place it there automatically?

Edited to add:
When reinstalling HD, it had to be named "F," not "C."
That didn't affect creating the original three User accounts, though, so I don't know what to think about that. Also no problem with downloading programs, it always defaults to the correct location. Just thought this might be important.

Likely this is actually something obvious that I've missed somehow, but its currently got me confused and I can't find answers.

I want to save images from the internet. It doesn't seem like it should be a problem. Maybe its just that I've only just moved to 7, and thus I'm noticing all the little things that are different to XP, but I find it annoying.

Firstly, if I right click and save as, the dialog no longer seems to remember the 'last' folder I saved an image to. Which seems inconvienient.

Then I thought I'd just drag and drop the images to the files instead. But for some reason, that causes every file name to have a [1] added to the end of it.

So I was hoping someone could help me out, either to return 'last folder' or get rid of the [1] adding behavior. Or possibly sugest an entirely different way that will avoid the problems that I just haven't thought of heh.

I usually try to fix these things myself but I don't even know where to begin searching on Google...

I was playing Mass Effect 2 (game) last night and the nvidia4 driver crashed (second time it's happened overall from this game...). I closed as many apps as I could, then told Windows to reboot. On rebooting, disk check ran and decided to delete about 12 files (it might have done other things, not sure). When I got back into Windows, all my preferences were gone and I realized that a new set of "Documents and Settings" files were created (called "Owner.MASTRPC", mastrpc is the name of the computer on my network) and even though Windows automatically logs in as "Owner" as usual, it points to that new folder instead of the usual "Owner" folder.

So basically all my preferences, shortcuts and passwords are gone, everything looks like a fresh install, and there are a ton of other inconveniences. Thankfully, the files from my Owner account are still on my hard drive. I think I need to point Windows to the correct Documents and Settings folder (Owner instead of Owner.MASTRPC).

Also, a second new account (ASP.NET) was created, which I've since deleted. But now I think that might have been from Windows Update awhile back. Not exactly sure what that's for.

It would be nice to use DVDs to get more images per disc, but not worth any sacrifice of quality. I would also be open to any other tips or suggestions for things to consider in a project like this. Thanks.

i'm new here and in need of some help, i wasn't sure where to put this so i opted for "other things"...
when i try to save an image to my computer it only allows me to save it in bitmap, so any animaties such as smilies that move can't be saved properly, once they've been saved they no longer move. before i had the option for what to save an image as, but all of sudden i can only save them in bitmap... i tried to convert them into jpg, gif after they've been saved but that ofcourse doesnt help once they've been saved as a non-moving image... how do i fix this?

A:problem with saving images in bitmap only

If you're using Internet Explorer then your problem is caused by a corrupted downloaded file. You have to delete the corrupted file to make it save bitmaps properly again. This explains how to delete the damaged file.

Currently I capture images using Snaggit, then copy and paste them into Photoshop to save images as PNG or JPEG files, using Photoshops's Save for the Web feature.

I use PS as it lets me preview an image before I save it, as well as fine tume what size the file will be.

However, I think PS might be a bit heavy duty for my laptop as it keeps displaying an error message that PS is using too much RAM (I only have 8GB).

So is there similar software that has a good Save for the Web feature, that will let me preview my images before I save them in either PNG or Jpeg, at a range of different file sizes?

I don't need to do any edit or work on the images in PS, its purely used for saving the files.

I was trying to save pictures to my computer and I got an I/O error. There are over 100 images, and apparently there is something wrong with image #4. When it gets to that image, I get the error message and the process aborts. My media storage is an IBM 1GB microdrive. These are senior pictures and I don't want to lose them! I can view all the images on my camera except image 4. I can see it, but the hourglass never stops turning, which is what happens when the image is finished doing its thing on my camera. I use Fujifilm finepix viewer, and could see all the images on the computer. No problems until I tried to save them. Thanks in advance for any advice you might have!

It's my husband's computer which is a Dell and uses XP. He's not even as computer savy as me and asked me to see if I can find out what is wrong with his computer.

When he right clicks in a website to save it on Desktop, it looks like it does but when he next time clicks on the icon on Desktop it comes up with My Documents in front of it and is not up to date but still at the time it was saved.

Clicking "Refresh" doesn't up date it either, although once he's into an up to date website, then Refresh works.

When he saves it in "My Favourites" then it comes up, up to date. So he has to go into My Favourites every time.

As well, if he receives an email without the URL (i.e. click here) it won't come up. He has to copy and paste it into the address, then it will open.

As well, he has Power Point installed but it won't open in an email?

He says that it is driving him crazy, so any suggestions for these things would be much appreciated.

I'm using Win7 Ultimate, Office Pro 2007, and have an older (but perfectly functional) HP PSC1200 all-in-one.

I have some documents I want to scan and save as documents (preferably as .doc). Is there any streamlined way of doing this? Fax & Scan only gives options to save scans as a few different image formats - .gif, .jpg, .bmp, and .tif - no other image formats, nor any document formats (.pdf, .txt, .doc, etc.) are available.

As of now, after looking online in various places for over an hour, from what I can see, the necessary process is to save the scan as a .jpg, convert it to a .tif, open it with the Office Document Imaging program, and then send it to word.

Is this honestly how this is supposed to be done? I find it hard to believe that with 7 Ultimate and Office Pro that I'm going to have to buy third-party software to be able to scan documents and save them as documents.

Does anybody know of a more streamlined process?

A:Scanning and saving documents?

I am using Office 2010. So my help is going to be limited. When I was using 2007 I found on the web (I don't remember where you will have to search) a key stroke that you could make and Word would insert a scan. It seems although MS took the insert scan feature out of the menus they did not remove The code from the program. It was something like ALT+I+S. You can find it by searching.

Read far enough down in this one.

The correct key-stroke is Alt+I+P+S.

If anyone can help me feel free to speak up. I am running windows 2000 and office 2000. I recently installed limewire and a cd burner. I'm having all kinds of problems with music but thats not the reason I'm typeing this. I also recently accidently deleted my learn 2 player. I believe I got the right version downloaded now but have no idea how it is suppose to be set. I'm telling you all this because I don't know if it has to do with the problem I'm having. The problem is, whenever I try to save or save as with my microsoftword I get a debugging error and the screen freezes. The drive does not keep running but the screen does. The only way I can stop it is by shutting the computer down manually with all programs left on, and I know thats not good for the computer. I have spyware and virus protection. Have scanned and have not found anything. Again it only happens with microsoftword when I am useing save or save as with a 31/2 floppy. Please help me. I have a final paper due and I have no idea what is wrong.Heather(moderator edit: split original reply so it stands on its own and moved it to a more appropriate froum.jgweed)

I have all my documents (word, Publisher, etc) saved on my other hard drive, which is also where my XP OS is running. Everytime when I open a document from my current hard drive (Windows 7) it opens in 'read only' format, and I can't save changes to it. Unless I save it to my current hard drive, which I don't want to.
Is there a way to change this? Even on the attributes in the properties of the folder or file the 'read only' option is not ticked, but when I open it it is.
I hope someone can give me some assistance!

Your other hard drive has permissions set that make it appear read only. Go to the folder you want to save to, right click and include in your documents library. You don't have to use the library if you don't want to but it will fix your permissions.

EDIT: Crap! That doesn't work anymore... You'll have to right click it, select properties, security and give yourself access OR just install this nice thing here Take Ownership Shortcut

I am having problems when I save a document. For example, when I open an excel spreadsheet and enter in data, then I go to File, Save As, then hit the drop-down box to change the area I want to save the document, and the save screen freezes. I can switch to IE or other applications but the save screen freezes.

Thanks as always for you help

I used ms office 2000 and it works pretty well on my machine. The problem is that (with Word 2000), like a month ago, the Save and Save as command have weirdly disapeared from the file menu. The only way I can save my documents now is by clicking Save As Web Page, and the change the .html extension to a .doc extension. It is pretty annoying and I have no clue why it happened. I use Word 2000 with the SP-3 installed.

Thank You

I am using Windows XP and Word 2003. My problem is this. When I save a document with a simple name like funfile, and then try to upload it to a website, the website will not accept it because the entire path is attached to the name like c:\documents and settings\compaq_administrator\mydocuments\funfile.doc. Is there some way to save a document by just typing the name and not getting the full path name attached to it?


A:Saving Word documents

Is this on just one website or more than one?

Typically the interface to upload a file looks at the file indicated by the path, and the result is that the file only is uploaded, not the entire path.

But the interface would vary a lot, it sounds as though you are actually loading a link to the file and not the file itself somehow perhaps.

Sometimes, when I save a image from Firefox to my Desktop, an error appears, saying that I don't have permission to save the file, and to contact the computer administrator or something like that. However, a 0 byte file with the name is created, and if I try to save the image again over the old one, it always succeeds.

I know it's not a big deal, but it's annoying. I wonder if anyone else has this problem? Before someon ask: there's only this user account on this computer, with full administrator rights, and no network computers.
