How to reference a predefined selection of files

Q: How to reference a predefined selection of files

I'm looking for a way to quickly reference a predefined selection of files.

For example, folder "Photos" contains:


In another folder, "Best of Photos", I want to reference a few of the photos in "Photos". I say 'reference' because I don't want to actually move or copy any files from "Photos" to "Best of Photos".

One way to do it would be to create several shortcuts, one for each selected photo, and place them in "Best of Photos". The downside is that it can become a mess when there are many selected photos.

A different way would be to use a saved Windows Search. I could use the query "1 OR 2 OR 4 OR 8" and than save the Windows Search to the "Best of Photos" folder. In theory it's an elegant solution but as soon as there are more than about 80 OR's this method no longer works.

The way I'm currently doing it is by adding some sort of suffix to the selected photos filename, e.g. 1_SEL.jpg and then searching for SEL to select the right photos. This is probably the best solution I've come up with, but it's not ideal since I prefer to keep the filenames untouched.

Would there be a better solution to this problems than the ones I've come up with?
Thanks in advance!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I was only able to find a reference of these counters in the Windows 2003 Resource Kit archives (28 thousand ! pages pdf). Nothing more recent. Is there any reference guide having these by Windows versions?
I managed to pull some of these through Powershell and .Net classes, but it only works if I know at least the categories that are predefined. I would really like to have an official list released by Microsoft or something.

Hello, I am trying to develop a plugin for some CAD software that will work in tandum with Microsoft's Excel 2010. I pretty much have a handle on the code except for one thing. I am using Visual Studio Professional Edition 2012 and I am programming in VB.NET. I was wondering if Visual Studio comes with the reference files needed to write some code to handle Microsofts Excel 2010 objects? I need to write code that will activate events based on a cell activation. I have that written out but Visual Studio (nor intellisense) will not recognize the code. I think it is because I don't have the proper reference files. What do you guys think?

So our call recorder got totally screwed up at the weekend. To cut a long story short, we need to pull about 1400 recorded calls in from backup tape. Unfortunately, due to the way the recording software names the recorded files (a naming convention I'm yet to fully decipher) the file name of the 1400 backed up calls have been reallocated by the recorder to new calls.

What I would like to do (in any appropriate language/script (I know a reasonable amount of batch, and a little PowerShell and Bash) is to do a mass rename of each file in the folder structure from 890001000632360.wav to 890001000022360.wav (changed the 63 in the middle to 02). Is this possible? I've tried playing around with regular expressions but not getting close.

Each call also has it's metadata in a XML file with the same filename. This is fine and I'd rename these to match in the same way as above. However, the problem lies in that the .wav file is referenced by name as a field in the XML. Is it possible to change the line in the XML to match the new filename?

I suspect this is a long shot and I'm psyching myself up for a long night of renaming! Any help of hints very welcome!


A:Rename 1400 files and reference in XML

I'm a bit rusty in this sort of thing, but you can do it in dos from a command prompt at least for one folder without a script ...
I'm assuming by the way that the first bit of the file "89000100063" would be the same for all files and could be substituted to "89000100002"

ren * "89000100002"
Although I'm not sure of the syntax for doing it recursively to cover sub-folders and it will rename all files as noted above, not just those with the 63 in the middle

I am trying to remove OEM branding from IE 11 in Windows 10. For the most part I have managed to get rid of most of it but there is one last thing that is proving tricky. This is a pre filled url in the dropdown IE address bar, which points to the manufacturer's
support site unsurprisingly.

Obviously you can click the cross next to it and it will go, but will return upon any reset of IE.

I thought the answer may lie in the reg key
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\
plus the corresponding HKLM keys also.

Having deleted the entire key, which contains every setting for IE, I sill see that upon any reset of IE (from advanced tab of internet options), the url returns.

So the question is really where is IE getting this information from at the point that it is reset. More to the point, where have the manufacturer hidden something somewhere that IE then pulls into it as it's default.

Many Thanks

Hello Guys,

I need someone to help a girl out. Here is what the situation is:

1. I have Windows 7 with Microsoft Word downloaded on the computer.

2. I have a USB drive that has a bunch of reference materials on it and it is on drive G:

3. The name of the USB drive is called "Mary References"

4. When I open Microsoft Word it comes up to a folder called "My Documents" on drive C:

5 What I want to do is copy the USB references from G: drive so it will appear in Microsoft Word in the area that says My Documents. Then I won't have to use the USB drive each time, it will be copied on the C: Windows 7 program instead of being called My Documents.

Can anyone help me? I just can't get this windows 7 working correctly and don't know how to copy it from the G to the C drive.

Thanks to anyone who might be able to help me out.

I am looking for an app or browser extension that instant searches every text that appears on the screen and alerts me when a predefined text appears somewhere (In Webpages and WebForms).

I am using a WebAplication with Chrome built in Java in a intranetwork, where i work.

I tryed looking for a Chrome extension but no luck so far.

Any ideas? Thank you.

A:Predefined Auto Search. Everywhere.

Hello BlitzMX, I have given a good look for something similar to what you are looking for, but I am not sure if there is such a browser extension, probably not enough people have the need for it.

Why are you looking for something like this anyway? The only application I can think of, would be IRC, where you may wish to say something based on a reply that appears (making a bot).

If you are making a website, then you could use JavaScript/PHP (depending how you implement it) to show messages once certain text appears and/or is inputted.

Dell Picture Studio Image Expert for Image Editing

Whenever I capture and save a pre-defined screen area image using ScreenPrint32 I am not entirely happy with the image quality.

Notice the "white spots" or "speckling" that surround most of the text as seen here in this unedited version:
I use Dell Picture Studio's Image Expert to edit my pix and again I mention that the image above is unedited or resized it's 1:1....this condition exists when I first view the image after saving into Image Expert and prior to using UploadIt! So, it would have nothing to do with the UploadIt! Image Hosting process.

If I want to resize the image from, in this case, 792x143 Pixels down to a more practical 492x87 Pixels size for Forum Thread viewing, the image quality and text clarity/sharpness is even more deformed as shown in the following image.
Here I simply resized the image:

How can I optimize the image quality?

An odd one maybe.

I have created a template, the template is named as such. when a user goes to save it, they tend to just click save, so in the job folder it says 'template', this is no good - they are fools.

is it possible to define a save name? say 'job programme'? then id want them to enter a bit of id to it, but its better than 'template'.

it is odd i know, long way round for a short cut maybe, but the original template has to be called 'template' otherwise my co-workers will never find it - or assume theyv done it.

maybe choose the name from a cell? dont know if thats possible either (i know they could change it then, but the problem is that they dont)

any advice will be welcomed.

My mother is 77 yrs young and has trouble, too often for my liking, with dragging and dropping files to the correct folders. She imports pics from her digital camera, which get sent to a newly created folder (date-time) insode her main picture folder. Then she edits the file-name and sometimes crops and tweaks the images. When she is done, she needs to move them from this temporary date-time folder to any number of specific folders.....Thanksgiving, Christmas, John, Mark and Terry...etc.

I'm looking for a more fail-safe way of the move process. My first thought was to create a "move to" link for the right-click. But from there she has to continuously search for the "Specific file." I thought there were programs out there that allowed one to have a group of 'specific folders" to move files to. In other words, Right-click on a file, select move to, have a list of folder that one could move the file to, select the folder, and its all done.

any ideas??

A:Finding an easy way to move a file to a predefined location

If there are not too many target folders, you could include them into the sendto right click menu. That would work with up to e.g. 10 - after that it gets a bit messy.

If that's something you want to try, post back and I give you the details. Here is an example of my right click menu that I have set up that way - but only for 1 folder => A1Temp.

I have been using Outpost Firewall Pro v2.1.303.4009 for a while now, but when I try to use an up-to-date firewall (outppost or sygate) I always have the same problems.

When I try to load or save anything (after installing the newer versions) using any program (even basic ones like notepad) I can't access the selection bar at the top of the file selection dialog. The menu is there but when I click on the button the load/save box freezes.

I know it's Outpost because when I shut it down the problem stays but when I uninstall it the problem goes, I use 2.1 and everything works fine.

I'm not very cluey with the Outpost settings so I don't know if it's a simple setting I have turn of.

I don't know it's a conflict or not, but I have noticed it seems to start when I have both new firewalls and Alcohol installed

Anyway, anyhelp would be greatfully appreciated as I gather that I should upgrade for computer security reasons lol

I have a HUGE problem.
I have an access 2007 database. I have used it im my VB 2008 project. I have a table called Reps (where the reps ID's are stored), and I have a table for each rep with their corrosponding customer's names.
Table: Reps(1)
Field: Reps (2)

Table: Spencer Customers (3)
Field: SpencerCustomers(4)

When you have selected RepsCombobox's selected rep name, i want only spencer's customers to appear in the "customer textobx". As a Combobox. Make sense to anyone? It would be easy to populate just one record, but i want to populate it with the corrosponding rep's customer list.

I have gotton this far:
Prvate Sub CustomerTextBox_TextChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles CustomerTextBox.TextChanged
If RepComboBox.SelectedIndex = "Spencer" Then

You can no longer sort the contents of a file listing in Windows Explorer, keeping a selection of files made in the previous sort order.
If this is a bug I would like to know, than I will report it appropriately, otherwise - if it is "by design" - I would like an explanation, why this function was removed.
As I see it, sorting has to be possible with the selection of files kept intact.
Searching the net I find many people being upset that this is not possible in Windows 7. I used it all the time at work, on my XP machine. I used to select all dll-files in a certain folder, and then sort by "Date modified", which resulted in a
list of files sorted by date, and with the appropriate files selected. This was an easy way to find out which dll files had changed last in our development environment - just sorting by date makes a lot of other files, such as log files and debug files appear
in between the dll files.
Below is another call for this. This user's request was made in another part of MS forum and the  (so called) answer was just a link referring to this place, indicating that the user should put his question here instead, so I take the liberty of putting
his text here as well:

In reference to this thread below:


I had the same exact virus, the Index.dat suite removed the viruses... But now I have a new problem since I ran the index.dat suite. If I click on any internet links that opens a new window to display it doesn't work. The new window appears and the window is titled Microsoft Internet Explorer. But then it stops and does nothing else.

I can copy the link and open a new window myself then paste the link and it will work (what I had to do to register my username for this site) but it's a real pain.. Was hoping someone could give me a little help there.

Second thing is I have something going on with my machine. Whenever I open or close Internet Explorer (no matter what site I'm on) it automatically starts popping up 2 or 3 ad's out of no where. One opens a window and then tries to close itself right afterwards. I've run virus programs and also ad-aware. What else can I do to get rid of these annoyances?

Alright, Im going to buy a new GPU in 3 days, but I'm still not sure which. I was aiming for the XFX 7970 GHz edition, but some people say buying the reference model and OCing it is way better. Is there any real differencen between the two? I mean I dont mind buying the reference card and overclocking it, but maybe it is possible to OC the GHz further?

A:XFX Reference or GHz?

People say the reference can be OCed further than the GHz addition. But not by much. The OC isnt really worth the 20 extra bucks if you know how to do it yourself. It gives you an enthusiast-like feeling to overclock. If you arent a newbie to OCing, go for the reference. I wouldnt buy the 7970 with the reference design though. Go for one with an aftermarket cooler like the XFX Double D since OCing produces a lot of heat and the reference cooler cant handle it past a certain point. XFX is a good choice because of the lifetime warranty. Make sure OCing doesnt void that warranty before you buy. If it does, get the GHz edition. This is the XFX GHz edition: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150632

Hello All

I have recently had problems with requiembot, a viscious trojan that seems to be able to take over almost everyting on the HD, anti-virus software in particular.

After getting help about removing this creature from my daughter's computer, I resorted to buying BoClean. This software supposedly removes requiembot.

However, after installing BoClean and them upgrading to include requiembot as its list of trojans that could be eliminated, I still could not install any new software; all anti-virus software was still rendered helpless; getting to the registry was still impossible.

So what I would like to ask my fellow users at there is, of what value is BoClean? Do you have any experince with this utility?

I did some changing and I got rid of the undefined reference but got this new problem instead.

When I run this code the program runs then I get a message that the program has stopped running. Any idea why?

If I comment out the code in main then there is no problems.

I have a Dell 4550, P4 2.4 with a 250W PSU. I have access to other Dell PSUs. How can I tell if they will fit/work? I have no way to measure them.

Here's the model # of what I have: PS-5251-2D

Here's what I'm looking at:

NPS-330CB L, Used in : Poweredge 400SC and Precision 360

NPS-350CB, Used in : Precision 370, Dimension 8400

NPS-305AB C, Used in : Dimension 4700, 8400, Poweredge 400SC and Precision 370

Thanks for the help!

A:PSU cross reference?

You can look at the wiring of the motherboard connector - it is either proprietary or standard ATX. If the mobo inside the Dell is ATX, then the PSU is some standard form factor too. Non-ATX (but still standard) PSUs use the ATX connector to the motherboard, so if you can fit the thing in the case with duct tape, then it'll work

Howdy folks. I'm looking for a reference to all the functions of mingw and what you need to include to use them with dev c++.

The reason I'm looking for this is because I'm kind of stuck.
I know c++.
I know how to control the flow of a program with functions, loops, if/elses, whatever.
But I cant do anything useful, like use network apps, or a windows interface, or detecting keystrokes (aside from cin).

Please help a very bored programmer.

Recently Ive tried converting a video to .mp4 format to play on my ipad but it kept going off sync. I use formatfactory, and Ive never had a problem until recently. Since I convert 23.9fps and 29.97fps most of the time, but this time its 24fps, I find it possible that this may be the reason why its off sync.

However, someone offered to help me convert to mp4 format and he did it successfully without loss of synchronization. I was curious why, so I used mediainfo to check and discovered 1 noticeable difference.
The details of his conversion indicated :
AVC ([email protected]) (CABAC/4 Ref Frames)

Whereas mine is:
AVC ([email protected] 4.0) (1 Ref Frames)

Now apart from this, mine also mentioned "english" under video and audio stream whereas his doesn't mention (it just states bitrate, frames etc.).

I was wondering if someone who has experience in this field explain to me what the problem is between mine and his conversions? Mine turned out losing audio/video synchronization while his is perfectly synced...does it mean reference frames are crucial in this conversion process? If so, how do I set it using formatfactory?

A:What are reference frames?


Loss of sync during conversion, is typically a result of the software used. There are numerous tools available, if one doesn't work, try another.

I have two customer tables from two different sources. Both tables contain the same customers but both have there own unique Id's for these customers. Being that these tables are managed by two separate companies, I cannot alter these tables in any way.

I want to build a cross reference table to link these customers together. The problem is that both tables often list the same customer several times. Example:

Cust_ID Cust_Name
123567 St. Johns
23456 Saint Johns
Cust_ID Cust_Name
98765 St. Johns
45678 St John
The only way I can think to link these two tables would be as follows:

Cust_ID_1 Table_ID New_Cust_Id
123567 1 1000
23456 1 1000
98765 2 1000
45678 2 1000
These three columns would make the new PK of the new table.

Considering that i cannot clean the original tables, this is the only solution that I can come up with.

Does anyone know of a better way to handle this situation?

Thanks in advance

Welcome to TSG.

What you've come up with is, IMO the best way to handle this.

We broke down and bought a new computer instead of build one. I got a Gateway GT5476E and it came with Vista Home.

It self-loaded without a registration and that is an issue to me, but yesterday I saved some files to a location on the computer just 2 days out, and they either were not where I saved them, or a permissions error came up.

What is Reference Assembly? IT will not delete. Please help. Vista is making me paranoid.
