I'm trying to import pictures from external device (in this case - android phone with PTP) and in the import dialog I've selected "import settings" and then I'm trying to change "Import images to" location, but when I click on Browse and select the same path I was using on windows 7 (on E: partition) I get error "You cannot import to this folder. Choose another location" which, frankly, doesn't make much sense. I've tried permissions and so forth and I can easily browse and save picture there, I'm the owner and all that. Why Pictures Importer complains and doesn't allow me to use this location? I don't want to import to %profile%/Pictures because it's small-ish system drive :|

Try creating the partition/drive you want as a Library - Nope - that didn't work, either.

First post for some help at work!
I need to configure a pc so that it uses a folder with pictures in it (folder is located in a network drive) to loop trough the background. I can select a folder and select al the pictures in it, but if someone else copies some more photo's to that folder, they don't come up on the desktop background. I first have to select these photo's before they are added to the loop.
Does anyone have an idea how to do this so that someone else can change the pictures in the folder(network drive) and windows background loops through al the photo's in that map without having to do anything?

Thanks in advance!

Best regards,

Hi all,

I have a question.
I'm trying to build a VB script, that can select and delete several lines of text in a word document. The Document is too large to do it by hand (almost 400 pages), but the pieces of text that need to be removed from the document always start with </par> and end with </rubriek>
I made a script to delete the lines containing <par>, but these skip the lines that don't contain this tag, which happens often:

Sub FindItem1()
With Selection.Find
.Text = "<par>"
.Replacement.Text = ""
.Forward = True
.Wrap = wdFindContinue
.Format = False
.MatchCase = False
.MatchWholeWord = False
.MatchWildcards = False
.MatchSoundsLike = False
.MatchAllWordForms = False
End With
If Selection.Find.Execute Then
Selection.HomeKey Unit:=wdLine
Selection.EndKey Unit:=wdLine, Extend:=wdExtend
End If
End Sub
Does anybody have a better idea than this? I can't immagine that it is very hard to do, I just cant find the appropriate VB code online.

With kind regards,

I have a document that has a random horizontal line at the bottom of one page (above the footer). There is no shading or borders in the document. I cannot select the line (it appears to be in a text box, but I can't select the text box either). I need to remove the line. It is only one one page. This is in Word on a Windows XP operating system.

A:Solved: Random horizontal line that can't select or delete

If you can't select the line why not select everything else on the page and cut and paste that to a new replacement page and then delete the old page with just the line left on it.

As grandparents, we are new to digital photography. We got a new digital camera that uses a secure digital card. There were 204 pictures on the card. I put it in my media reader and downloaded the photos on to my computer Windows XP. I thought I took the card out of the reader but am not positive about that. Any way, I started looking at the pictures and deleting the ones that were out of focus etc. When my husband put the card back in the camera and started looking for certain pictures, they were gone. But there was a black space where the picture used to be. If I delete the picture using the camera, it just disappears as if it was never there and does not leave a space. So, I am in trouble because I deleted his pictures off his SD card.. I don't know how I did that. But the crazy part is that some pictures that I deleted from the computer are still on his card and some pictures that I have on my computer are no longer on his SD card. This is the part that is a real mystery to me to explain how I could have done this. I am in BIG trouble with my husband. Can any one explain the missing photos and what happened ??

Hey there!
I have a problem that I wasn't able to google out so I am posting it here. It concerns yahoo email. I found out that yahoo saves all the pictures you send and receive as attachment in your emails into a separate picture folder. This folder is not visible in the yahoo mail interface on PC but it is viewable when logging in via smarphone (I do not use the yahoo smarphone app, just direct login through web browser - google chrome on iOS 7).

The pictures that are viewable in the "pictures" folder when logging through smarphone web browser cannot be deleted in any obvious way (such as a delete button or something). I figured they should dissapear if I delete the original message BUT that worked only partially. After deleting the said emails, I could no longer see pictures that I received from others, but I can still see pictures that I sent myself (and yes, I made sure to delete all the emails in "sent" folder as well). Please help! It is driving me crazy.

It is astounding to me that Microsoft would not allow users to delete a user picture, if the user didn't want one at the logon screen.

What possible reason is there to disallow deleting the picture. I know you can create a blank jpg, use a different picture, but why not just eliminate the user picture. A choice to get rid of that bad decision some of us make in testing and trying things is just too puzzling to let go.

I share IT responsibilities at my company and one of our (former) sales people added profile pictures to every single one of his contacts (787). To make matters worse, the large majority of them are celebrities & models if he liked the person, or "ugly people" if he did not like them.

We have a new salesperson onboarding and I need to transfer his contacts to her, but before I can do that I must find a way to rid all 787 contacts of their profile pictures.

Is there any way to accomplish this without having to manually remove each photo and resave the contacts? A setting, script, anything?

I'm trying to create a menu where there is initially one select box (Funding Group) displayed with approximately 10 options available depending on what's in the database table.

I want another text box (Program) to be displayed, but only where the program codes have a Funding Group that was selected in the first box BUT have no duplicate program codes (see below for explanation).

For instance, there are fund groups A0, B0, C0, etc. The program table in the database might contain some rows that look like this:
Fund_Group Prog_Code Prog_Descr
A0 101 Fred [so, prog code 101 has more than one fund]
A0 102 Ethel
B0 101 Fred [so, prog code 101 has more than one fund]
C0 203 Ricky
If the user selects Funding Groups A0 and B0, the Program box might initially contain this: [note the funding group and program code are concatenated in the value field --- I'm thinking this will help me determine which ones to add/remove]
value text
A0~101 101 - Fred
A0~102 102 - Ethel
B0~101 101 - Fred
[Note: the customer doesn't want to see Fred listed twice but I will worry about removing the duplicate entry for program 101 later... right now I'm trying to generate a box that contains only valid entries even if they are duplicated initially]

Hi I have a windows vista 32 system and I would like to know how batch select, or find files, sharing a common text feature in the title and then delete that feature.
to be clear, say I have a number of file archives taken from various sources and although they are easily identifiable and searchable they all share the same feature in the title, i.e. a number.
So I have the following:
01 the cramps - you got good taste
01 white rabbits - percussion gun
09 yo la tengo - return to hot chicken
01 the pipettes - real feelness
03 the gossip - standing in the way of control
12 mc5 - kick out the jams
what i would like to do is identify the files with numbers in them, at the start of the file name, and then delete them: the numbers not the file. If i can't identify numbers in general then identify the files by '01,' and then remove the '01' from all the files that have it at the start of the title
I am trying to organise my music files, and I have a program called 'Dr Tag' which does this, but not with the file extension '.OTS' which is specific to the application i want to use the 'OTS' files in.

Using WindowsXP - trying to delete photos in my pictures. Whenever I hit "delete" for the selected pictures, another copy of those pics is made and placed in the my pictures file. What causes this? How can I prevent this from happening?

A:can not delete pics in "my pictures"

Try this solution below that I found elsewhere ....

...highlighted the file to be deleted.. For example, when you quickly highlight multiple files to delete, if you accidentally "drag" the mouse a little too much, it creates a copy of every file that was previously highlighted and saves it to the same folder.

First, try deleting a single file by RIGHT clicking on the file, choose "Delete".. If no extra copy is made of that file, then nothing is wrong except your technique of highlighting files.

There are other ways to highlight multiple files.. For example, if you got a bunch of files all in order, click on the first file to highlight it, then hold down the "Shift" key, then click once on the last file in the list.. All files in between will be highlighted. You can then click on "File" in the upper left corner, then select "Delete" from the menu items.

Or, if you want to remove a large number of files from a folder, open the folder, click on "Edit" in the upper left, select "Select All".. All of the files will be highlighted in the folder, ready for deletion.. To eliminate those files you still want to keep, hold down the "Ctrl" key, then click once on each file you want to save in the folder.. When you're ready to delete all the files that remain highlighted, click on "File", select "Delete".

Set autoplay to default 2. Unplugged all ports and replugged 3. Typed jpg in search and found them but they are not accessible when I try to upload them to my website. 4. Looked in temp files (not there) 5. Tried another "test" photo and tried one more time to upload it from snapfish and photobucket and still can't find them. Can I tell windows where to save my photos? Could this be from a corrupt file? I don't know what else to try.

They on all of my machines end up in the picture folder unless I click on save as and select another location.

Although most pictures from my correspondents display in Thunderbird, some of them don't (see the attachment).

Any ideas from forum users as to why this is happening would be appreciated.

Hi Robyn, Welcome to SevenForums.

Sorry if i have misread your issue but you could try...

Thumbnail Previews - Enable or Disable

1. Open up Windows Explorer
2. Click on the down arrow next to Organize, which is located under the Back and Forward navigation buttons.
3. Select Folder and search options
4. Under the View tab, uncheck the first option "Always show icons, never thumbnails"

Hope this helps.

All the pictures in my Pictures folder have disappeared, leaving behind a bunch of empty folders. I did not delete them, and I have no viruses according to AVG. It appears that this happened to a few others on this forum, but no solutions were presented.

If it helps - I noticed that the Read Only button was checked on the main folder, so I unchecked it, and I watched the status window un-apply "read only" protection from all my actual pictures files, so it seems to me that they're still there but invisible.

I performed a system restore, and Recova is in the process of performing a "Deep Scan" for my pictures (the quicker scan did not find the files). Has anyone solved the problem of the disappearing pictures? Is this a Vista problem, or perhaps a problem with an update? Any help would be appreciated!


A:Pictures disappeared from Pictures folder!

Read only shouldn't have anything to do with it. Have you checked the Recycle Bin and AVG's quarantine? Is the Hidden attribute cleared? Have you installed any new programs or updates?
