Q: [SOLVED] Properties Question

Hi, when I right-click the folder with my music to see how many files (MP3) there are, i always get an incorrecnt amount (higher than the real number).
For example, if i manually count it all, i get 1,546 files, but in the Properties it shows 1,784 files. Can anyone explain why is that?

P.S. When I open my Music Organiser, it shows the correct number of music files...

Cheers ;)

Hi Karpaty !

Could be some hidden files : go to tools => folder options => view, check "show hidden files and folders" and uncheck "hide protected operating system files". See if some new files appear now.

I just have a quick question. When you right-click My Computer and retrieve the properties, it displays all your computer's speed information such as CPU and RAM.

I was just wondering why these properties display two CPU speeds. For example, mine says word for word: Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz 1.50 GHz on the CPU information line.

Can anyone explain why there are two speeds? Thanks in advance.

when i right click on a photo. and click on properties. and when the window pops up i noticed that where it says created, modified and accessed. the dates all the same. shouldn't they be different. i thought where its says created should say the date i put it in the pc?
 

A:Right click/properties question

The only thing that I've seen, if you copy the file, the copy will get a new created date. The same when downloading from your camera. Move the files(not a good idea) and the date the photo was taken is the Created Date. Copy them and you get today's date.

Have you copied or edited the photos?

Hi. I'm on Windows XP Home.

I would like to prevent an installer from deleting files that it puts in a particular folder. Is this possible? The installer encounters an error at the end of the process and deletes everything. It was suggested to me that if I could find a way to "keep" the files, I would be able to get things working.

Any ideas?

Thanks..
 

A:Folder Properties question.

If the installer choses to delete all the files after the error then there is no way to keep them. Unless you know how to re-write the installer exe file but i wouldnt suggest that.

On discord, its not uncommon for me to come across "Cursed MP4 Files" with strange properties.

I'm incredibly interested how the creators of these files were able to get their results and mostly I want to make my own "cursed files". Some of the properties I've seen are video lengths upwards of 13,000 hours long, yet still being 1 MB. I've also seen videos that have negative video lengths and videos that display the video length as 0, yet still plays a video.

How were some of these made? I can file share the specific MP4 files in question

After copying folders, containing files and documents, from W98 or W2000 to XP, via Windows Explorer, I sometimes find these files have picked up the "Read-Only" attribute.

This causes editing problems. So in Windows Explorer I right click and select "Properties" on a folder (some of these folders have sub-folders, and hundreds of files, documents with various extensions in them). The box next to "Read-Only" is usually grayed with a check mark in it (meaning some files are not read-only).

I uncheck the "Read-Only" box and hit apply. I'm then given a choice between un-Read-Onlying just this folder or Un-Read-Onlying the folder and sub-folders. I always select the sub-folder option. A progress bar appears and it looks like the attribute is being changed to uncheck "Read-Only" from all the files in the folder and sub-folders.

But not so. I go to edit a file or document and too many times I get the "Read-Only" message. Why doesn't XP deliver on unchecking "Read-Only"?

Hi;

I have a folder of home videos that I back up to a USB key with Syncback. The key is nearly full and I'm trying to reduce the size of that folder. But here's the thing; If I right-click on my 'Home videos' folder and select 'Properties', it tells me I have 564 files in 85 folders, taking 2.67Gb.

However, if I open the folder and search for *.* to show all the files, then select all, right-click, 'Properties', it tells me I have 2224 files in 249 folders taking 6.41Gb. Still, at the bottom of the Windows Explorer window it says 649 items selected.

This is the case on both the folder in My Documents on the PC and also the matching folder on the USB key.

Treesize also shows 2.67Gb for both folders.

In fact as far as I can figure, what with everything else on the same USB key, there wouldn't even be room for a 6Gb folder.

I've tried showing both hidden and system files and folders but there's nothing extra to see.

Can anyone please explain this anomaly? I must be doing something wrong but I can't figure it out!

It depends a lot on the power of your system. If you'd completed My System I could have given you an idea. Seriously, the Indexing Service can make searching easier, but on a slow machine, because the indexing goes a bit overboard, it can slow things down. On a reasonably powerful machine it is worth having it on and programs shouldn't be affected by it much. If you notice a reduction in performance, it's time to think about upgrading.

When I start the computer and the computer finishes booting, the desktop has a small error window open with a message in the box saying: The properties for this item are not available. I don't know where to start to find the problem. In the upper left corner of the box it does say Desktop. I tried booting to safe mode and the error message is not there. I have a picture of the box captured by using the snipping tool. I can't get any information on the box by right or left clicking it. What should I try next to to stop this box from appearing? If I click ok the box goes away and as far as I can tell everything is fine. Also, I did a sfc /scannow and the report was all file accounted for. I have been reviewing logs but so far I have not found the error message listed. This message appears evertime I start or reboot the computer. No other times.
Here is a picture of the message box:

I might just be being lazy here but....

Having created a major upgrade for a client's Access 2003 database. The client is still running release 1 on site while we have been creating release 2 using a replica of release 1.

I will be taking the beta release 2 to site in the next month or so. Part of the upgrade entails editing the properties of certain fields in a table and adding new fields to it as well.

Using a replica of the client database, we manually added the new fields and edited the properties here away from site but on site I think it might be more elegant to have a means to run a VBA script to do it for me. This way I can test it off site and just run it on site for speed and accuracy.

So, is there a way in VBA land to:

- Open a table for editing its field properties
- Add new fields with their associated properties to that table?

Any pointers would be gratefully received!

Chris
 

A:Solved: Edit table properties in VBA?

You can do it with VBA, but I bet it'd be easier to author and implement an ALTER TABLE query. The capability's already there; let Jet SQL do the work for you.

Simply upload the query to the clients and run it.

My problem is that when I copied over fonts to the windows fonts and told it to replace the current font it didn't do what I wanted. For example I copied over a font with the name HS.ttf, and when I now look at the corresponding font it is called HS_1.ttf. I have a certain program that looks in the Windows\Fonts folder for a font called HS.ttf and it currently can't find that file.

I thought no big deal I'll just rename HS_1.ttf to HS.ttf. That's where I have a problem, when I try to do that it gives me the error 'Cannot rename HS_1: A file with the name you specified already exists. Specify a different file name.' When I do a search for a file called HS.ttf it can't be found anywhere. How do I go about finding and removing this HS.ttf and renaming my HS_1.ttf file so that my program can correctly find the font file I want it to?

A:[SOLVED] Changing font name properties

There are 3rd party programs that do what you want. Be careful about renaming since .ttf's can have the same name as psf's and you might come up with something unexpected. Also remember properties of type 1 and type 2 (different).

FYI: 3 y.o. laptop displays a better resolution then this one just recently purchased. Both are pretty much bottom end systems for the price.
Now my old XP (Intel 915)displays 1280x1024 @ 60Htz and this one (Vista - Intel 965)only 1280x800 @ 60Htz. I want the new one at the same resolution, 1280x1024. What tweaks(or cheats), if any, can I do to this system to get it there.
I've already ran a driver scan utility which indicates a display driver update is available but when I found the driver and install, supposedly for this vid card, it says incompatible with video card.
DGMW, I realize 800 to 1024 is not a significant increase to justify the hassle I'm going through but, when I'm determined, man gotta do what man gotta do! Plus, it's more needed for desktop publishing than anything. And no I don't want to use dual display!
The only thing I attempted to check is if the vid card is integrated, in which, I'd just swap for better card BUT, thanks to Toshiba, the undercarriage is not exactly removable friendly!
Another prob is the hertz is unchangeable, as well! Go figure.
Of course, any help would be appreciated except for nay sayers.
 

A:Solved: Limited Display Properties

I'm not sure why you'd want the 1024 instead of the 800, because 1280x800 is a widescreen resolution, whereas 1280x1024 is a standard resolution. If you forced your monitor (Which I am assuming is a widescreen model) into 1280x1024 resolution, everything would be distorted.

The alternative is to set it to 1440x900, but it's possible that this resolution is too high for a "bottom end" laptop.

As for the hertz, unless I'm mistaken, they are more or less irrelevant on LCD screens. (Or at least, vastly less improtant than on CRTs)

Hello,

I am confused by some of the energy saving setting in XP. The energy-saving choices on the screen saver tab are not well explained.

I've read that an LCD display has a finite lifetime and running a screensaver picture consumes part of that lifetime. So it seems to me turning off the monitor after X-minutes is prudent.

What is the difference between turning the hard drive, option on line 2, after X and am going to Stand by? I thought, the energy savings in standby were accomplished by turning off the hard drive. I'm guessing there must be a difference otherwise there would not be two options. What is that difference?

I don't think the energy savings between standby and hibernate are so significant to prefer one over the other. However, after one hour of inactivity. I would like the computer to reduce energy consumption. Do I choose the option on line 2 or on line 3?

Is activity measured solely by keyboard or mouse, or does it include downloading?

Thank you for your help

This is causing havoc with everything. Of course, I can go and unmark it on each individual file, or even select all the files in a folder and unmark it, but it won't unmark subfolders. Each and every folder and all of its subfolders have to be unmarked individually. Ugh! Is there a quicker way to do this?

Also, is there another way I can back up my information to CDs and copy them back without having to go through all of this over and over?

Thanks!

[Edit: Btw, I forgot to mention that I'm using Nero 5 - Burning Rom version 5.5.8.0.]

To be blunt, I downloaded [email protected] to remove a glitched, unremovable folder from my start menu. It was only a 15 day free trial, so I uninstalled it afterward, and I doubt I'll be using the program again, ever.

My problem:

I want to remove the [email protected] tab from my file properties menu. I'll never use it again, and I just.. Don't want it there.

Hopefully there's a simple fix for this? That's all I really require, knowing what I need to do to edit what tabs display on my file properties menu.​

Hi cribmad

Yes, it could be McAfee changing the settings.
Try disabling the e-mail scanning for McAfee and then correct your server settings.

Hi,
What can be keeping me from accessing Network Properties of my Dial-up?
I open the shortcut icon, then right-click on my dial-up, but nothing happens.
I have a working thread going ( in this forum titled Possible Bug? ) regarding a problem with Generic Host Process errors, and need to get into the properties to enable the simple Windows firewall, in SP1. I've tried in Safe Mode too.
Any help will be appreciated.
Thank you for your time,
patmac
 

A:Solved: Can't Access Network Properties

You will need to delete and recreate your dial-up connection. Make sure you save any phone numbers that it dials and any usernames/passwords.

I used to work tech support for earthlink, and that was the only thing we could do to resolve this issue.
