Change Control Panels List Order

Q: Change Control Panels List Order

I am running 64-Bit Windows 8.1 Pro and this is more of an annoyance than a problem. When I call up the list of Control Panels from the start menu, they are in alphabetical order from left to right and then top to bottom. Short of installing some third party app, is there a way to change the list to be in alphabetical order from top to bottom and then left to right. I would like to be able to see all of the available control panels at the same time, so narrowing the view to one column doesn't work for me.

Hi:
This is embarrassing! Somehow, my list of "Favorites/Bookmarks" (Vista/Explorer 8)went to listed in order by when it was entered to an alphabetized order- don't know how it changed, but I just want to get the list back to original based on WHEN the item was listed alpha, not A, B, C order- I have looked everywhere and can't find a way to get the list back to the way it was- PLEASE!

Not really a problem, just something annoying that I hope someone can help me (and any others who might want to do the same thing).

When I open up images (photos or artwork) and want to modify, crop, etc, I usually use irfanview. I have it set up as my default choice to modify images. Recently I added a program called GonVisor to read digital comics and magazines and when I right click on an image and use the OPEN WITH option, GonVisor became the top choice on the list because Windows 7 has the list in alphabetical order and Irfanview is second.

To make matters worse, I have McAfee Security for my virus protection and firewall and that was working great until recently when they updated their virus protection and there was a compatibility problem with one of the recent windows 7 updates and I got knocked offline and the router didn't "recognize" my computer on our home network so I had to uninstall the McAfee Security Program and reinstall it and that solved the internet connection problem...but now I find firefox, my default operating system, is now first on the OPEN WITH list, then GonVisor and Irfanview is third! Also there are other programs on the OPEN WITH list when I want to modify images that don't really belong there....like Opera Operating system, Windows Live movie maker.

So my question is...is there a way to either change the order of the OPEN WITH list or remove programs that I will never use to modify images without going into the re... Read more

Hi!

So I recently got an Alienware m11x. I attempted to install more memory into the laptop. It worked ok at first and then I got a couple of blue screens on start up so I swapped out the new memory for the old figuring it was defective. I put the old memory which stopped the crashes.

My problem now is that since those few crashes very few if any of my control panels will work. Explorer crashes from time to time. I have run the sfc /scannow command which said it found errors but could not fix them.

I have been all over the internet looking for a solution and cannot come up with one. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,
I've just upgraded from vista ultimate, 64 bit, to windows 7 ultimate, 64 bit. I ran into an immediate problem because I'd not uninstalled the norton UAC utility. This manifested as anything requiring a UAC prompt giving me a signing error and not working. I then found the system wouldn't boot to safe mode (reset itself about 5 seconds after reaching login screen). Eventually I managed to fix this by booting from a CD and switching UAC off by editing the registry. Whilst hairy sounding, this all seemed to work, and most of the symptoms I was experiencing have gone.

Not everything is rosy though. Many of my control panel applets will not run. I select them from the control panel menu (or any other way, eg right click on desktop, select personalise) and absolutely nothing happens. Watching task manager doesn't even show a new process being created and destroyed. It looks as though standard windows control panels won't work, but third party ones will (eg, my anti-virus),

Does anyone have any suggestions on tracking this down? With the safe mode problem as well, I'll certainly be doing a full reinstall soon, but I couldn't afford the couple of days it would take to do this at the moment.

Thanks for any suggestions,
Kev

Computer is an Acer Aspire 5720Z running Windows 7 SP1 (with all current updates). Somehow I have ended up with an "All Control Panel Items" icon on my desktop that I can't get rid of. I went in to the Desktop Icons panel and verified that "Control Panel" and "Allow themes to change desktop icons" were both unchecked. They are. So I checked both, applied (at which point ANOTHER All Control Panel Items" icon appeared on my desktop for a total of 2 of them), then unchecked both and applied (and the duplicate disappeared) - still leaving one on the desktop. I also have tried switching themes, and no mater what is selected, the control panel icon remains. I found a MS article on it and also ran a virus scan on the system with Avira AV Premium 2012 as well as SuperAntiSpyware (system is clean).

Any ideas on how to get rid of it? It is functional and takes me to the "classic view" of control panels.

How do I save FOLDERS so that they'll be in the order in which I put them on the CD/RW?
I want to save the original file Folder (they're all Word 2000 .doc, or .txt files) then every two weeks or so save a new folder with the revised/updated info, {i}yet keep the preceding ones from being written over.[/i} For example, would something like this be feasible?
:
Folder_00_042103 (this would be the "root folder")
|
Folder_01_051503

and so forth..... I was thinking of putting a Read_Me file on the CD, but presume it'd be stored as last file on the CD after the Folders. Could I put a Read_me file in a folder named, say, Folder_Read_Me? Would it be listed before Folder_00?
:
A problem would be saving a month with a 1 in it (October, Nov., or December), OR a date with only a single digit.
OR would they be sorted/saved to the CD by the Folder 00 ... 01 ... 02 listing?
 

A:How would I list FOLDERS in ORDER on a CD?

I use dates in reverse format at the start of folders or files when I want to do something like you're describing. A new folder or file made yesterday would be:

20030420 Folder Name

while today's would be:

20030421 Folder Name

The folder/file names can be anything I need and they will always be sorted in the folder in the order I first created them. This applies also wehn backed up to a CD.

I use this approach because it often takes me several weeks to get some document completed and I will often remember the rough date when a file was topical, but it would be out of sync after multiple edits, saves, etc.

It also helps in keeping all files of different types related to the same project/topic in a useful order. I know there are many different ways of using the filter options in Windows, but this simple naming approach seems to work fairly well for me.

Hope this helps.

Hi, this is my first post to these forums. I have been trying to fix my desktop computer for quite a while now and thought I'd ask you guys for some help. I am no sure if something is wrong with my hard drive or not. Anyways here is where I am at, I first went into my bios to change the boot order to boot from my cdrom, an when i did, the only thing listed in the order is the Hard Drive and the floppy drive. This seemed odd to me because my cdrw drive works perfectly fine. It burns cd's and dvds fine, and it runs any cd i put into it.

When i put in my windows XP cd to try and format the hard drive and do a fresh install of windows, it just loads windows as normal. It doesn't boot from the cd like it should. Since it won't boot from the cd, I can't delete the partition and install a new one. Any ideas why i the cdrom drive isn't in the bios boot order? Thanks.

Also, my computer is pretty old, but it has worked for a long time and never had one problem with it.
AMD Athlon 3000+ 2.0Ghz
1GB DDR
Radeon 9800 Pro 128mb

The hard drive is about 7-8 years old. That's why I am wondering if it is dying and i just need to purchase another one (as cheap as I could find) just to keep the computer running.

If the optical drive is reflected in the main BIOS screen...then it shouod be among the boot options.

I saw a post by Noel where he told the OP to install by Date, not KB# which reminded me of a question I've had for quite some time. Are updates generally listed in order of 'Importance' or 'Date' or what?

Right now I'm down to 6 updates left to do. They're all .NET Framework from the 7/9/13 list of updates & in clicking on the "More info button" they're all 7/9 & there are 4 listed for 3.5.1, then 2 listed for 4. I've read something about it's best to install these type one at a time, is that true? If so, that's 6 re-boots in a row if I were to do them all now which I kinda thought about since it's already 2 weeks past Patch Tuesday. I'm also assuming that all the Framework 3.5.1 should be done before the Framework 4.

Thanks.

A:Installation order of list of updates

The KB Number is generated at the start of a project - and as a results bears only some resemblance to the order in which patches are released, since some patches take longer to develop, test and approve, than others.

I generally do .NET update in increasing order by version, then date
e.g for XP, do all v1.1 then v2/3.5 - for Win7, all 3.5, then 4.5 (I've uninstalled 4.0, as it seemed always to create more problems than any other version)

I've got 25 separate files of cartoons in a directory that are listed alphabetically, naturally. I want to place them in another temp directory in my preferred order. I suppose a DVD burning program will let me do that before I burn the files to DVD. However, I'd like to have them in my preferred order on my HD. Previously, I would have to laboriously put the numbers 1. 2. 3. in front of each title to have them listed in my preferred order.

Is there a way to force Explorer not to list them in alphabetical order in that temp directory that I want to move them to, without putting the numbers 1.(filename) 2.(filename) 3.(filename) etc. before each file name to have them in my preferred order and not listed alphabetically by file name?

A:List files not in alphabetical order?

File systems are essentially built on a database and as such Windows can arrange based on multiple properties such as name, date, or file type but you can't just specify a display order without adding a prefix.

Are they numbered 01, 02 etc. Some players will play 1, 10, 11, 2, 3 etc so it best to have a zero infront of any single digits.

Also the player may be taking its cue from the tags instead of the filename, so make sure that the files are tagged correctly. I've never used it but I've heard that mp3 tagger

When I was having problems with KB2975719, and going thru solutions, it drove me nuts trying to find if I had certain updates installed from the Installed List in Windows 8.1 since they are not in numerical order. (Contol Panel >Uninstall A Program > View Installed Updates)

I finally figured out where to find a numerical list which I could check much easier in determining if the updates required in some solutions were installed on my pc.

1. Install Belarc Advisor

2. Run and open Belarc Advisor

3. At the bottom of the opening page of BA, click on "click here to see all installed hotfixes" - a numeric order list.

4. Just to be sure all were there, I printed this list and manually compared it to my Control Panel Installed Updates one time.

I then had a numerical list to compare to all the KB's required for installation of KB2975719. Much easier for this simple brain than remembering a number and looking for it jumbled list. Hopefully this will help some of you in the future, particularly if MS continues to issue and pull back updates the way they have been.

A:How to Get a List of Installed Updates In Numeric Order

You can also open the Admin Command Prompt and type:

I use Nero Burning Rom, not sure what version it's on my computer at home, but I'm fairly certain it's version 6 or 7, I know it's not 5. Anyway, I label the songs I want to burn (mp3 format) by naming them like this 01 - Name of artist - name of song.mp3. However, when I add files to Nero to burn them it will put them like this 01, 010, 0100. I've tried variations of numbering but nothing short of a bizarre list of number and letter combinations will get it into the correct order I want it burned. Is there an easier way to do this? I can't find any kind of function in Nero that lets you burn in the order you add individually or anything. Thanks for anyone help!
Tika
 

A:Solved: Nero song list out of order

Nero can only burn data (mp3's for eg) the ways windows allows you to view a folder's contents. (By name, date modified etc). So you do have to number or letter the files as you are doing. To get what you want you need to add zeros to your numbers.
01, 02 etc will only do for less than 10 files, for more than 10 but less than 1000 you need to go 001, 002, 003 etc. And 0001, 0002, 0003 will keep them in the right order up to 10,000.
You need the same number of digits as the highest number basically and you make up the digits with zeros at the start.

I have a table which has got 2 keys. I want to list the table with the 1st key being DESC and the 2nd key Ascending. If I set the table properties with the "ORDERBY Key1 DESC,Key2" when I open the table with a double click it opens correctly sorted. HOWEVER if I create a Combobox on my main form with the data source being that table, the corresponding drop down table is NOT in the correct order. How can I cause it to be in the same order as the properties of the table specify?
 

A:Solved: ComboBox List Table sort order

You should not really bother sorting Tables as data should not be viewed in it. Data from the table does not obey the table's sort order, so to overcome this use a query to get the data sorted the way that you want. Access sorts from the left first.
You can sort your combo's data by opening the Row Source SQL and adding the sort to that, do not "save it" close it and when Access asks if you want to save the SQL say yes.

Hi all, I have Win8.1x64 with Startisback . For some unknown reason the Start/All Programs list lost its alphabetical order sorting. I checked Startisback Options and "Sort items by name" is marked. Is there any registry hack or other means to correct this? Thanks for your feedback.

My sister told me that her Windows Mail is really strange. I can't help her because I don't use Windows Mail so I am asking on her behalf.

a) When she opens her Contact list , the names are in alphabetical order (which is expected) .However when she composes an email and clicks on the "To" button , the name list displayed is not in alphabetical order by name but strangely ordered by email addresses. Is there a way to rearrange to resort by names?

b) When she types a name in the Address area ie in the box next to "To" , another page opens for search. Is this normal ? With Outlook ( which she used to use until she changed to a new computer running Vista) when you type the name a list of potential email addresses appear. IS there a way to fix this?

Thanks

A:Windows Mail Contact list and email address order

I'm piggybacking on here because I have a similar problem. I imported my address book from Outlook Express and now when I begin to type in the name on "To" line it doesn't find the contact. For example if my contact is Joe Smith, I use to be able to type in Jo (and the auto fill would kick in) Now I need to remember Joe Smith's email which might not be anything like his name ([email protected]) How do I organize my address book like it was on O.E.? I want them alphebetically by first name, not by their email address.

Is there anyhow possible to control Windows 7 file name sort order?
When I run vlc player on my Windows 7 PC files are sorted CD2,CD3,cd1 while Windows explorer sorts same sequence cd1, CD2, CD3.
Because Vlc Player uses different sort order, it's a great mess, when there are hundred of files and for example a file North123.... may be several screens before north124....
File names have been created by other users on different systems and there it is not possible to standardize anything between names and computers.
Results have been accidental data loss, when comparing and deleting identical content in file groups.
Any suggestions please?

Vlc support couldn't understand the problem and didn't provide any progressive ideas in this matter.

As the titles states, I want to control the order of programs which start up with Ultimate. Is there a utility already within this OS that does this or is there a 3rd party software for it?

I remember reading about a 3rd party software that does it in XP but that was sometime ago.

Thanks for any help.

Hello everyone hopefully someone can help me out with my issue .

I was having issues with my laptop and somehow ended up setting my boot device to the CD drive in BIOS . Now my computer will only boot to what is on the CD which is the program windows boot genius . if i don't have the CD in it'll repeatedly turn on and shut down unless i put the CD back in . I know i have to get back to the BIOS to change my boot device back to my HD ? but im unable to do so . F2 is my bios key but that takes me to windows boot manager where i can only select windows and it loads up to the program all over again .
I can access task manager etc and the run window and see my files are still there though . I did a boot file test through the program and none of the files are missing and it recognizes that my PC was on windows 8.1 .
