Preferred Solution: Trying to change format from Windows to AVI?

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.)

A few years, I purchased a Windows 7 Starter netbook and now I'm enlightened with all the knowledge of customization and theme editing I can do with it. But something's been bugging me - how do I change the time format?

As you can see, changing the date format looks fine. The Time format hasn't changed.
I've tried changing it to 24hr format (I'm more used to military time), tried switching around where the PM showed up, but it doesn't show up on my taskbar, only on the hover over for files & folders. Any way i can fix this?

A:How do I change the default time format in Windows 7 Starter?

A:how to change files from firefox format to another format

The simple and obvious answer is to just change the files that you want changed and leave the others alone. But you must have something more in mind.

Hello,
Okay I would like to know if this is possible.
I currently have several forms. I am creating a new form using the form wizard. So I click on insert->form. I go to form wizard. click ok. I add the needed fields. click next. it asks me to form with "subforms" or "linked forms". I click subforms then next. This next slide gives me four options "1 tabular" "2 database" "3 pivot table" "4 pivot chart". I want to choose 1 tabular, because it is the best for me, but I would like the layout to be slightly different. The top portion places the fields vertically across the form, and the middle portion places the records horizontally.
I would like to make the middle portion place the records vertically instead of horizontally. Is this possible?
I tried to modify it using the click and drag method, but then it would only let me access one subrecord at a time instead of all 3 subrecords.

Thank you for you time and effort.
Sincerely,
David

Evening All:

    I have 2(SanDisk 32Gb) pendrives that are formatted in NTFS. This presents a problem. They are "recognized" as HDD's and thus, cannot be "ejected" in normal manner using "Safely Remove Hardware" icon. When I try
this, there is not an 'eject" to click. I believe this is because the NTFS format makes[reads] them a HDD and, of course, HDD's cannot be "ejected". So, is there a command that I could run that would change the formatting from NTFS to FAT32
without having to empty all the contents of the drives, re-format, then re-install all the data?

Welcome to Win7Forums Ghost!

It is definately not true that you have to reinstall Windows with a MOBO/Processor change. 7 is smart enough to detect the processor and use it, the only issue might be the MOBO. 7 will more than likely load a default driver for it but you may want to load the manufacture version to make sure you can use all the features of it.

Whenever I save something from the internet to a text file and open the file with Notepad, it will bunch up all the words and sentence into a group of words. Example:
 Notepad.JPG   52.65KB
  11 downloads
 
However, when I open the file in Wordpad, it will come out like this:
 Wordpad.JPG   57.71KB
  10 downloads
 
So I was wondering does anyone know why Notepad do this. Also my computer in a Window XP.

A:Why does Notepad change the format of it's content?

This has to do with how Notepad recognizes the end of a line. In Notepad, only a carriage-return character followed by a line-feed character is interpreted as the end-of-line marker. Other systems like Mac OS X and Linux use only the line-feed character. Whenever Notepad opens a file that uses only the line-feed character (for example, if the file was originally written on a non-Windows system) it doesn't detect a proper end-of-line marker and so interprets the text as being on a single long line.
 
Wordpad supports many end-of-line conventions, which is why it can display both the Windows and Mac/Linux conventions correctly. You might want to look at one of the many Notepad replacement editors available online. My favorite is Notepad++, which includes tools to convert a file between different end-of-line conventions.

Hi people, I'm new around these parts, but I'll try not to be an annoyance.

I had a client come in yesterday with a problem with MYOB displaying the wrong date format. Specifically, it displayed it in MM/DD/YYYY format, instead of DD/MM/YYYY.
Looking at MYOB support, it says it takes the Date format from the computers regional settings, and will change as you change the settings.

The machine is Windows XP SP2, it has no other errors that I've noticed. The machine is only a few months old.

We changed the regional settings, with no effect. We then went to customise the date format. If we made any chages, even selecting something from the dropdown boxes, it would say 'Invalid character' and not allow the changes. I hadnt added any characters, just selected one from the dropdown box. You'd think that they would be correct.

Any thoughts would be appreciated. I'm hoping to have the machine back in the office next week to work on it.

Hi, folks.

My IT shop recently rolled out several hundred new Dells with Windows 7. We've had minimal problems so far.

However, our HR and legal folks are bugging us to change the format of the LegalNotice screen at Win7 startup. All PCs are connected to shared network resources and they insist on the LegalNotice being activated, with an "appropriate use" message displayed and a click-through acknowledgement by the user.

In Win XP, this notice was displayed in a separate dialog box, with the message in a simple black-on-white textbox.

In Win7, the notice now comes up in the center of a blue graphic background, and is in a bluish font that is both smaller (in high screen resolutions, especially) and a harder-to-read typeface, which makes the notice virtually useless.

LegalNotice is controlled by a couple registry settings, but they only allow you to activate it, set the box caption, and set the box text. No other format control is available, e.g., font type, size, weight, textbox background/transparency, etc.

One thought we had was to imbed the notice in the background graphic, but that raised problems with centering and placement due to differing monitor resolution settings. Plus we haven't quite figured out how to replace the default graphic.

If any of you have ideas/suggestions, I'll appreciate your input. Thanks!

This is a continuation from this previous thread I started but is more specific to changing one more thing before I export the worksheet to a tab delimited file.

Need to add one more thing to this script and it has to do with the way the date is formatted in some of the cells. The cell gets exported as to what the cell format is versus what the true cell value is.

So for instance. The actual cell value that is typed into the cell is 12/23/2013 but the client put in a custom format of d-mmm so it displays as 23-Dec and that is how it gets exported to the tab delimited file. I need the cell to export to the tab delimited file as 12/23/2013.

So I tried this code to change the Date Formatting but this did not work.

Code:
If IsDate(rCell.Value) Then
rCell.Value = DateValue(rCell.Value)
End If
Anyone else got any ideas.
