Hello,

For some reason, after I deleted my user account in windows 7 on my laptop, and created a new one, I noticed significant changes to the presentation of my interfaces. The font of the bookmarks bar in google chrome is much smaller, and most importantly, I can't respond to any comments in YouTube anymore! Every time I press reply to comment in a youtube video, a google + sharing rethought for the web box pops up and then disappears over and over again preventing me from leaving replies. I have no clue how to fix this in google chrome. Also, I am just experiencing problems in general with google chrome after I deleted my user account on my laptop such as; ongoing sync passphrase problems in google chrome that won't go away either even after I delete chrome and re-install it. Need help!

I am creating a workbook that is read-only, but I would like to add a column for commenting.

I know protecting all cells except the comments and making it a shared workbook is one way get around this, but I have encountered too many bugs in the shared workbook mode.

My idea is to do a BeforeDoubleClick which will:
-copy a range of cells to the left of comment cell
-open a writable workbook
-paste the copied cells
-allow user to type comment next to pasted cells
-click button which will save and close the writable workbook
-pull the comments section from writable into the readonly workbook
-perform a lookup to match the comment back to its range of cells to left
My current macro so far looks like this:

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Excel.Range, Cancel As Boolean)

If Not Intersect(Target, Range("B2:B26")) Is Nothing Then
ActiveCell.Offset(0, -1).Select
Selection.Copy

Workbooks.Open Filename:= _
"commenttest.xls"
Sheets(1).Range("A1").Select

Windows("commenttest.xls").Activate
ActiveSheet.Range("A3").Select
Selection.Paste
End If
End Sub

I don't have alot so far. If anyone has another solution ideas, please let me know.
 

A:Creating a Comments section on a READ ONLY Excel Workbook

I have a workbook that is password protected and thus read only for those who do not have access.
What I did is that if the person or persons authorized to edit access it all their actions (macro's and functions) remove the sheet protection when adding or editing and immediately after that protect the sheet again.
You can store tha password as a Public Const and so you dont have to ente the password all the time:
For example:
Public Const cPassword As String = "1234"
Public Const cAdminPassword As String = "Adm1n"

2 functions:

Function ProtectSheet()
ActiveSheet.Protect cPassword, True, True, True
End Function

Function UnProtectSheet()
ActiveSheet.Unprotect cPassword
End Function

So you can write a routine that gives you an inputbox to enter you comments value,
When completed you do the following
UnprotectSheet
Edit or enter the comment field
ProtectSheet

I'm not entirely sure if it's related but earlier today, like a fool, i managed to spill some of my drink on my type cover for my surface pro 3, i cleaned it up no problem but now i've noticed some of the keys aren't as bright as the others?
The keys are u-p, k,l 8 and 9 so it's just a patch where the light doesn't look as strong, i would however say that they are lighting up but it's hard to tell.
The keys work fine other than that, does it have something to do with the drink i spilt? Is there any way it can be fixed?

Hi all,
I'm using Acronis True image v11 home, and it's VERY good at it's disk image backing up; helped me numerous times while setting up a dual boot on my laptop.

When i create the backups, it asks for an optional comment, so you can identify the backups later on. I always made good comments, but now i have numerous backups, i've just realised I don't actually know how to view those comments?!

If anybody knows how to, please give instructions!

Hi, just come across this File Metadata (free) which I think will interest you- seems very competent in tagging files.
At the bottom I've added a note about StyleFolder (free), which adds comments to folders.

If you want to add comments, tags, metadata to files, this is for you.
In some places it refers to XP and Vista, but is maintained and current for '10.

File Metadata - Download File Meta 1.3

1. Explorer with normal view of details pane for txt

2. Configuration screen for program
3. Result with several added editable fields and added comment
"It is pretty clear that Microsoft originally intended to ship a broader capability. What this package does is wire together pieces that were built into Windows in readiness, but never joined up: it connects Explorer's ability to see and edit metadata with NTFS's support for storing property data in an annex to any file, and so allowing metadata to be added to files of any type. And because Windows Search uses the same property system hooks as Explorer, you can also search using this metadata, both in Explorer and from the Start Menu (or Search charm). That all this takes just a 19K DLL (64-bit, release build) and some registry settings tells you how close Microsoft got.

One reason why Microsoft never shipped the complete solution is that all works well when the file is moved around between NTFS drives, but the metadata is lost when a file is, say, emailed, or moved to a FAT file system. Also, if your fil... Read more

Hi there,

I got a Surface Pro last month. It had a 8GB partition for the system's default restoration which I transferred to an SD card before merging that space with my C: drive.

Considering the unreliability of SD cards and the fact that this will be pointless past June 30th because I won't be able to get updates if I install 8.1, I was looking into other alternatives. Although I did back my partition with Clonezilla after I was done installing everything, it would be nice to be able to do a fresh install if needed. Since I do own a Windows 8 license, I should be able to install Windows 8.1 from a disc (I have external DVD drive) using my key code that I discovered after running Belarc Advisor.

Anyone has any idea if this would work?

A:Do Windows 8 Licenses work the same way in a Surface Pro?

Hi there

If it's an RT system --then no. The newer surface pro's which are Windows will work exactly like windows --if you change the built in version that came with the device (you'll have to disable protected boot first) then a retail copy will install OK. Backup though just like you would a regular PC. It will also work just like a windows PC regarding updates etc.

For RT all bets are off - and that whole RT system doesn't actually look very long for this world either.

hi, i bought a Microsoft Surface Pro, full Win8. I use it mainly for reading Kindle books and pdfs, minor use of Microsoft Office.

Turns out that a bunch of my Kindle books (expensive reference books) are not compatible with iPad Win 8 kindle app, and they dont plan to fix the kindle app.

I never use the touchscreen. Do use bluetooth, wireless internet.

Hi, I've posted my problem in OS and Windows XP section of the site and they have requested I post here too. They said to post a HJT log and report any findings/advice from this thread back to them. This is my original post:

Hi, I recently sent my laptop away to be fixed as it wasn't turning on 90% of the time and when I got it back they said it had loads of viruses and trojans which was the problem. I use AVG which I thought would have prevented this and I don't know how they fixed it but they said it was now clean.

The laptop was used with no problems for about 6 hours altogether before I installed a new external hard drive. Well, I say new but it's actually a Seagate Desktop 500gb that i had previously imstalled but the USB connecter fell off so I had to transfer it into a new case. After installing it into the new case it appeared in My Computer and I could access all my files again but the Seagate Device Manager did not recognise it. However, I soon began getting Blue Screen Errors regularly which directed me to this page after restarting: http://wer.microsoft.com/responses/R...735f4fb6f#here

I have tried all of the steps apart from the final one and nothing has worked. I started up the laptop with nothing connected to it and just left it for a few hours and when I returned to it again I got the same message telling me a serious error had occured and to visit the above page.

Suddenly, the d, e, o, m (and more) keys will not work on my power cover type keyboard. Not sure what caused the issue, don't rememeber downloading any updates or giving the keyboard a bang/fall.

The Power Cover is also charged-up, it's not a case of it's battery being flat. Sometimes I can get affected keys to work if I unattach and reattach the P.C. but a few seconds later they will return to not working. Please note this problem happens after a restart, after a shutdown, across two seperate surface devices (one win8.1, one win10), and after a factory reset back to Win8.0.

Hi ,which of the following two devices you would recommend
- Surface pro 4 Core M3-6Y30 HDD 128GB RAM 4GB or
- Surface 3 Atom x7-Z8700 HDD 128GB RAM 4GB
I have Surface Pro first edition with Intel Core i5, but would like more light and thin tablet with long lasting battery. I do not game nor draw, thus consider that the power of the above two would be just fine for using MS office, Inet browsing and HD videos (incl. MKV files).
What do you think?

A:Surface pro 4 Core M3-6Y30 or Surface 3 Atom x7-Z8700 ?

The Surface pro 4 is in fact the better device. The only possible argument is that some people might want the ability to add LTE connectivity, prefer the smaller screen and or smaller price of the Surface 3.
SP4 Pros
-------
The Core M processor is going to be better than an Atom Processor
Larger (higher resolution) Screen and Smaller bezel
Better keyboard that has space between keys and larger (glass) trackpad
Windows Hello Iris Scanner
Gorilla Glass 4
8 megapixel rear shooter and 5 megapixel front shooter
----------
But if you do not care about the above advantages and or prefer LTE capability, a smaller display, and a smaller price then by all means the Surface 3 is probably for you

We are using Word 2003 SP2, running on on WinXP version 2002 SP2.
to briefly illustrate our problem:

Say I have four Word files, called B, C, D and E. Each file is three-to-five pages long, and each file ends with a Next page section break, created by dropping down the Insert menu and selecting Break... > Next page. Remember that - each of the four files ends with a Section Break (Next Page).

I create a fifth file, called A, which is a composite of files B through E inserted as links (because I want to be able to update files B through E and then pull those changes into file A). My new and blank file A is open, and I drop down the Insert menu, select File, and navigate to the file called B. I press the Insert button at the lower-right of the Insert File window and select Insert as Link. I repeat this process for files C, D and E so that, when I finish, file A is made up of files B through E, each inserted as link.

When I review file A and scroll from top to bottom, I notice that file D's text does not begin at the top of the page following the end of file C's text, as you would expect with a Section Break (Next Page) inserted at the end of file C, but rather the Section Break (Next Page) has somehow turned into a Section Break (Continue) during the linking process to file A, and so file D's text begins on the same page and a line or two below the end of file C's text. This is bad.

There's a problem I can't understand. I downloaded four GBA emulators(VBA8, VBA10, Purple Cherry X, etc.) on my L640. I started a game Pokemon Emerald and was shocked. In every emu sound is distorted and makes headaches, in VBA8 fps is lower than 45fps, in VBA10 and Purple Cherry X - lower than 40 and 30 fps. By the way, VBA10 makes phone really hot, although fps is lower, sound is even worse quality and app is made for W10M so all this makes no sense, because VB8 on W10M works miles better, but it's still unacceptable. Why? Because my old PSP with 333MHz processor and 64 MB RAM emulated GBA games almost perfectly.
Okay, there could be some reasons like bad coding and small number of WP/W10M users, but, come on, even GBC games (like Pokemon Crystal) on those WP/W10M GBA emulators are not emulating great, sound is distorted too, but, at least, are listenable. But no excuses, because I emulated pokemon crystal on my iPod Nano 1st gen. which has 80MHz cpu and there is no sound distortion at all... All this just makes no sense.

A:Why emulation on W10M/WP is so bad?

It's simply because development is lacking. I hope that with the ability to port Win32 apps to the Store and all that, we get to see VBA-M soon enough.

Is there a way to force edge on my phone to sync favorites manually?

My Lumia 640 with Windows 10 (previously 1511, now 1607; I'm on Release Preview) doesn't get past Uber app version 2.5.x, but WC reports (repeatedly) on the Uber app being 3.2.x: http://www.windowscentral.com/uber-update-makes-it-easier-book-cab?_ga=1.94882716.1280883874.1469892291 .
I've tried to reinstall, uninstall-restart-install, and similar several times, I've also tried direct links to the Windows 10 app in the store, but apparently I cannot get higher than version 2.5.1. Are people using the 3.2 version? How did you get it? Any thoughts on how I can update my phone to rock the latest version?

Is it possible to emulate that "sliding" feature where you can switch to different windows so easily? I can't believe it's not a built in feature it would be so much easier to navigate through windows than having to point and click on them!

A:Is it possible to get that Mac three finger swipe feature?

The closest you can get in standard windows shell would be probably using Synaptics driver for touchpad and setting 3 finger gesture to Win+Tab (or two times it to switch between windows) or Ctrl+Tab (to switch between tabs).

Of course, there would be no "sliding" animation itself, only standard Win+tab animation.

When i open any webpage in microsoft edge in my w10m (Lumia 640 xl with official w10m build 10586.218) and start to scroll up and down, the webpage stutters a lot and sometimes it becomes completely blank.

I'm a bit torn between the two as I have decided to upgrade my Surface Pro 3. Price is not an issue, so im just looking at specs. Surface Pro 4 Core i7 256 GB HD 16 GB RAM Surface Book Core i7 256 GB HD 8 GB RAM I loved my SP3 and getting a Pro 4 with double the RAM and faster processor sounds like a no brainer. But looking at the Book and getting the NVIDIA GPU sounds pretty awesome even if it's only 8 GB of RAM. I loved the portability of the SP3 and I feel the Book although it is portable won't be the same with the added keyboard it brings. Then again the Book keyboard would be better than the Touch keyboard I have now. Any opinions/suggestions would be helpful (:

A:Surface Pro 4 or Surface Book

Laptop that can double as a tablet or a tablet that can double as a laptop? You're probably going to keep the Book in laptop mode most of the time.
Also, I think, assuming you don't do crazy memory-intensive things, that adding discrete graphics is much more useful than extra RAM. I got myself a ThinkPad with a Core i7 (Pro 3 generation), 8 GB/256 GB and the only things I really think would be nice is more hard drive space and better graphics.

So I just put together my new computer with windows 8.1 and I noticed that when i do the swipe up gesture to access the jump list from the taskbar, my computer will automatically launch whatever my mouse is over when i let go the mouse button. On my laptop with 8.1 when i go through the swipe up gesture using the mouse, the jump list will open up and then i can click on it to choose what i want. Does anyone know where the gesture settings for jump lists are?

In the picture i have attached, I have the "Downloads" folder highlighted from where my mouse is from clicking and holding while swiping up on the icon. If i let go of the mouse, it will go to the downloads folder. On my laptop however, the same dragging upwards will not automatically go to the downloads folder, but rather make the jumplist appear only.

Whenever I swipe in from the left of the screen in Windows 8.1, the programs I have open - usually only Outlook and Chrome - sit side-by-side, each taking up half of the screen.

That's ok, but when I close one of them by dragging the divider to the right or just closing it normally, the remaining program does not resize to its previous setting and stays at the split screen 50% size.

Is there any way around this, as it's very annoying.

Any ideas what can be done? try a soft reset: Soft Reset is holding the Volume Down & Power buttons until the phone vibrates and reboots (about 10 seconds). This rebbots the phone with a cleared out RAM and Cache. No data is lost. It is good for when the phone freezes or you experience a glitch of some sort.
Then check for app updates in store

HI, I've lurked this forum for some time already, but now that I had some specific doubt I decided to Sign in
I wanted to change the icon for WAV files, so I did so by modifying the right icon in Wmploc.dll, using Resource Hacker.
The thing is, when you swipe a icon, he actually swipe a group of Icons. In this case, 6 icons of different sizes:


What I would like to know is if there's a way to change only two icons of this group (the ones signed with the name 722 and 723). So, I can have another icon with better readability on those small sizes.

Hope someone knows a way to get there. Thanks.

A:Individual icon swipe from a Icons Group?

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
I've personally never used resource hacker but it would seem doing it like that you'd need 2 separate files to add to those two entries ?
Scaling never works very well in any graphic's program I would usually just export as and save it to the sizes I wanted. in a icon's case I'd have 6 separate files in those sizes.
Then save that file to a .ico file type,
Cheers.

Hello.

I use an Asus Zeenbook with a large trackpad that enables multiple finger gestures. One of them is three finger swipes left and right to navigate back and forth.

If I want to go to the previous site in my browser, usually I could just swipe with three fingers, but somehow that has been disabled in Chrome. It still works in Windows (in folders) and in IE though, so it must be Chrome-related. AFAIR I haven't installed anything out of the ordinary recently, this problem just suddenly occurred one day...

I'm helping someone with a Foxpro Database, they have an existing Access database that was setup by someone else but are migrating to foxpro.

The access database has a feature that works with a Card swipe to verify ID's, there is a 3rd party ActiveX control that will send the swipe data to a particular port, I haven't had a chance to study what it does but I guess it is checking a table to validate the swipe.

So I'm not sure what to ask, but would like to know if anyone has done something like this in either Access or foxpro, just so I can get an understanding of how it is configured.

What do you mean by forward and backward swipes? Just scrolling like you would on Mac OS X?

If that is the case it's already built in, just try it.
