How can I hyperlink to a sound file in MS Word 2007 AND control the sound? Pause it?

Q: How can I hyperlink to a sound file in MS Word 2007 AND control the sound? Pause it?

I have hyperlinked to a .wav file in an MS Word 2007 document, and the sound file plays without opening a media player.

Problem is the sound file is 10mins long, and I have no way of controlling the .wav file once I have activated the hyperlink.

Pressing escape stops the sound, but I cannot pause or rewind.

The hyperlink seems to be opening the sound file as an 'embedded' object that I have no control over.

During a presentation, I need to be able to pause the sound or even rewind it.

Why doesn't MS Word allow me to open the hyperlinked sound file in a media player?

Can you help?

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 have a designated folder which stores my jpeg image files to be hyperlinked
to an Access 2007 database table. When I click on the images in that folder,
they are set to open using the "Windows Picture and Fax Viewer" app by
default. However, when I click on the hyperlinked jpeg image within Access,
they open using the app "Windows Internet Explorer" (IE). I don't know where in Access
I can change the app which opens the images within Access. I'd like for them
to open using the app of my choice (in this case, the Windows Picture and Fax
Viewer). All of this is on my local desktop PC (no servers or admin
personnel other than myself involved in settings). The OS is Microsoft
Windows XP.
Much Thanks!

A:ACCESS 2007: How do I control which app opens a hyperlink image file?

Sharon, welcome to the Forum.
Did you use the Control Panel to set the jpg and jpeg files to open using the "Windows Picture and Fax Viewer"?
Normally in Access it uses the Program that is the default for the type of File or the program that created it.

For example, the add on to firefox where you can draw a square around many links at once and they will all open. Hope this makes sense and thanks

I have the Windows Vista Starter version loaded on my system. The system has two accounts, both with administrator rights, one without a password (created earlier) and one with a password (created later). When I try to follow a hyperlink in MS-Word 2007 using Ctrl+Click in the second account (the one with the password) I've started getting an error message "This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator". This does not happen when I try to Ctrl+Click in MS-Word when logged into the first account (the one without the password). I've even tried disabling the user account settings, but no progress. Help Please!

A:Unable to follow Hyperlink in MS-Word 2007

This might best be handled in the Business Applications section and I will move it there if you request.

Howev er on the account where you are getting that restriction message, have you verified that Internet Explorer is the default browser on that account?

I think that can result in the error message if IE is not the default browser.

Hello brainy people.
I need to be able to implement an automatic volume change between two sound sources.

Example: The XP os computer has a sound card with a satellite receiver plugged into line in.
Say at 3:00pm the computer needs to fade the line in volume out and then turn up the WAVE play out and play a winamp play list.

I'd prefer to use batch files but if I have to I'll use a freeware 3rd party.
I'm very familiar with batch files and windows scheduler and automatically doing things to Wimamp. I just need a batch file or what ever to change the volume setting between Line In and WAVE.

Any help would be great thanks.

A:How do you control sound card from batch file

Hi, welcome to TSG.

You could do that with AutoHotkey, a freeware scripting tool.

You could open the Volume Control screen and use two MouseClickDrag commands to lower one volume and raise the other. Then a Run command to start up Winamp.

Brand new Windows 7 Home Premium (6 bit) computer. When I click on the Sound control panel item, sometimes it takes 1-2 minutes to open. But that's kind of minor (although I'd like to know how to fix it), because sometimes the HDMI sound to my HDTV works fine, and sometimes it doesn't work at all. The only sure fix is to reboot the computer, which isn't really what I want to do every time I want sound coming from the HDTV speakers.

More details: if I reboot the computer, and then switch from the monitor to the HDTV for my video output, I can open the Sound control panel (opens at normal speed) and then I select the HDTV to be the default sound device; and everything is good. At some point, I stop watching the HDMI output to the HDTV, switch the video to my main monitor, and the sound now comes out of the computer speakers. Great. That's what I want. I can even turn off the HDTV, come back 20 minutes later, switch the video back to the HDTV and the sound goes through the HDTV speakers. Switch back and forth a couple of times and everything works as expected. Great. That's what I want.

But at some later point in time, it stops working, and I don't know what triggers this. At this later point in time, I switch the video from the monitor to the HDTV, but now the sound remains with the computer speakers, if I try to open the sound control panel, it takes 1-2 minutes, and when it finally opens the sound control panel no longer lets me select the HDTV to be the default soun...

A:Sound Control panel takes 2 minutes to open; HDMI sound inconsistent

I had the slow opening sound panel/playback section for a while. I tried several things and all of a sudden the problem went away. Not sure what fixed it but I have updated the AMD video card drivers several times, no audio driver updates. The only common point is that I too have an AMD video card (HD7770).

In most cases, if the PC "speakers" (sound card) is set as the default audio playback device and then an HDMI cable is plugged into the PC it will automatically switch to the HDMI sound (and make it the default playback device), and if the cable is disconnected it automatically switches back to the speakers. If you are having problems accessing the sound panel, this is another option (for most) until you get the slow opening panel issue resolved.

I have an MSI 785GTM-E45 Mother Board. I have no sound coming from the speakers. Tried new speakers and still no sound. If I click on the speaker Icon on the bottom right it shows the speaker graph going up and down as sound is being produced. I tried the head phones and nothing coming from them either. I tried playing a CD and nothing from there either. I first noticed it when I was trying to play something from YOUTUBE and thought it might just be the site but then I tried off line as well. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium. This is the first day that I have noticed it. Thanks for any help. I have checked all the settings I can think of but probably have missed something somewhere.

A:No sound from speakers but showing sound graph on speaker control

Go to the Control Panel/Hardware and Sound and finally the Sound Panel. In the Playback section, set your "Speakers" as the Default Playback device (if it's not now set). Then see if you have speaker and/or headphone sound.

Hello. I installed a new Creative Sound Blaster Zx sound card and installed the drivers from the CD and have found that the controls/features from the Z-Series control panel are not activating. The video within the control panel itself runs but there is no sound. Windows shows there is sound playing from it though but nothing can be heard. Do I need to turn something else on or adjust more audio settings somewhere?

As another note, before I was able to install the drivers from the cd itself, Windows had automatically installed something after recognizing the new hardware, then I ran the driver CD. I also had a previous external sound blaster audio card/driver that I was using before.

Thank you for the help. Have a great day!

Hello all,

I would appreciate a bit of advice on this matter:

In the past few days, I've noticed that my computer has a habit of frequently pausing/lagging for a second, which is then followed by the hardware plugin/eject noise made by Windows (sounds kind of like "ba-duck"). This can happen as often as every few seconds and seems to just happen at random. It's more frustrating than anything else to have it pop up so often, but does anyone know what could be causing this?

My old antivirus program recently began malfunctioning and freezing windows, so I replaced it with Windows Live Essentials. At some point during all this, the pauses started. I've already recently tried to uninstall WLE to test if it was the cause, but this has had no effect either. I'm also finding that my computer will lag for a moment at sporadic moments as well, and my browser seems to occasionally crash for a few seconds (not responding) before going back to normal.

Can anyone offer any advice?

My system specs:

Windows 7
Processor: AMD Phenom II X2 3.1 Ghz
Ram: 4G

Any help would be much appreciated!

Hello! The situation is as follows: I recently bought the HP laptop. It is absolutely new. After I configured the Windows 10, I tried to watch video files and faced the problem with the sound. When I start to watch any video file (movie, TV show, etc.), the sound is fine. Then, I pause the video and wait for 10-15 seconds. After I resume the video, the sound begins to croak. Every time. Nothing helps until I close the file and start it again. When I start the file again, the sound is perfect again. So, if I don?t use pause, the sound is perfect, but after I pause the video, the sound corrupts. Always. This situation repeats in various players ? PowerMediaPlayer, VLC player, KMP player, etc. What I tried:I tried to uninstall all audio drivers and play files in the PowerMediaPlayer ? the problem persists.I tried to uninstall all audio drivers, then install the latest Realtek Audio driver and plae files in the PowerMediaPlayer ? the problem persists.I tried to lower the system volume and player volume to 20% ? the problem persists. So, I don?t know what to do ? this problem is very annoying. I cannot watch movies freely, because if I use pause, I will always have to close the file, start it again, search for the last point and resume watching. Every time. It?s absolutely frustrating. Please, help me to troubleshoot this!

In Word 2000 under Insert Hyperlink, Word maintains a listing of recent files or browsed pages that you can use to insert hyperlinks into your document.

Is there someway to "flush" that list, when it become so long or so outdated as to begin to lose utility for the end-user? There must be some way to do that, since I noted that my files list (either at home or work) recently was zeroed out in the last couple of weeks or months.

Okay, we have at least a partial answer to this question. Apparently if you flush your recently visited internet page history from your default browser, you will simultaneously delete the recently browsed pages under Insert > Hyperlink in Word 2000.

I would like to control the AutoScroll speed in MS Word 2007.

When I press the mouse wheel with the pointer over the center of a Word document, the up and down arrows with a dot between them graphic appears as it should. The smallest mouse move either way (up or down) causes the scroll speed to go much too fast. I want to control it. I want to be able to set the AutoScroll speed to scroll more slowly so I can read the text.

This same AutoScroll function's speed is OK with web pages.

I recently installed Office 2007 on a new Vista 64 bit system. I was unable to install my previous version of WordPerfect Office 12. When using WP on my previous Windows XP system, I was able to go into the word processor, click open, go to the wp folder (where I kept all my documents) and do a search based on a particular word I was looking for. For example, I could type in the word "hebrew" in the files box and each document file that contained that word (not only in the file name but in the contents of the file) was listed. I could then preview the contents of each document file and open the one I wanted.

Does this feature work in Word 2007 under Vista 64? I have only been able to find a file name with the word I type, even though I know many other document files contain the word I type in the files box. This has been very frustrating because it means I have to preview every file to find the one I want rather than just the files with the typed word in its contents.

Thank you for your time in this matter.

When I open a Word file, it freezes & then crashes (details below) often w/in 10-20 minutes of opening the file, but occasionally it has been longer (it went 3 hours once).

This is one of the weirder things I've ever seen happening in MS-Word.
The file in question is a book manuscript that was created in Word 2007.  The individual who wrote the book happens to be blind, but is a friend of mine, and even she knew something was "off" without being able to see it.
She sent me a copy of the original .doc format file and also one in .docx format.   In both, the entire document has the text right justified, but, and here's the important part, Word is showing the document as left justified no matter where you place yourself in it.
If I do a select all, then hit the right justify button the entire document left justifies.
Since this manuscript will be submitted to a publisher it would be helpful if it were working as virtually every other MS-Word document works as far as justification goes.  Neither of us has ever encountered this before.
I figure that someone must have had this happen to them and probably knows what one must do to fix it.  Any and all assistance will be most appreciated.

A:Weird MS-Word Situation - File Created in Word 2007

I ran across a similar situation using Word '97 many moons ago. I had found and used a template which contained pre-formatted content that did not cooperate with the changes I wanted to make. This worked for me.
A word of caution as you probably already realize, you will lose all formatting of the original .doc / .docx so it may involve some work replicating the format of the original .doc / .docx.
Make sure your original .doc /.docx is saved

Open the original .doc / .docx
Open an instance of Windows Notepad
Copy/paste the text from the saved .doc / .docx into Windows Notepad.
Open a New blank Word Document
Copy/paste the text from Windows Notepad into the New Word Document
You should now have full control of your New Word Document
By saving the original, you can replicate the necessary changes (fonts, colors etc.) lost by copy / paste to Windows Notepad
Hope this helps

Cheers all,

Problem is as stated in the thread; I downloaded, untar'd and set the theme up today. I know it's specifically the "Close Window" sound since it's unique from the others. I'm referring to the following actions in particular (there may be more things I could do to proc it, but I haven't checked yet)...
Opening a Program
Opening a Folder in Windows Explorer
Starting a new Windows Explorer Session
Closing a Window (expected function)
Closing a Windows Explorer Session (expected function)
Those not followed by (expected function) have a different sound assigned to them, although the Close Window sound plays anyways. Not always immediately after the action is performed, either - there can be anywhere from a 1 to 15 second delay before the .wav plays.

The sounds are located in C:\Windows\Media\AltimitOS\ with AltimitOS being a custom folder I copied in. I originally untar'd everything to the desktop, then created and moved everything into the folder and tried running the theme from there. I've made sure all file paths are leading to the \Media\AltimitOS folder.

Any help is appreciated. Cheers,

I have good sound with other speakers on this desktop, but I wanted to save some workspace on my desk, so I recently got a new AX510 sound bar and attached it onto a Dell 2208WFP monitor, one of the monitors listed for that soundbar.  It powers up via the AC port built in to the monitor, just like it should, and I've correctly connected the audio cable on the soundbar audio output on my desktop.  But there's no sound at all.  I did get a static "pop" once... but no other sound.
So I am trying to figure out whether the sound bar is defective, or if this is possibly a Windows 10 issue, as I've read a few odd posts on the internet about people suddenly finding that previously working sound bars don't work in Windows 10.... or some other incompatibility (my desktop is a Studio XPS 8100, Windows 10).  I realize all of my equipment is not the latest, but it's all been in great working condition and the one new addition is the sound bar... I did plug my old speakers back in again, and they still work just fine.
I was thinking I can test the sound bar by connecting it to another computer at work (tomorrow) that's running Windows 7.  to determine if it's a Windows 10 issue -- or if it just doesn't work at all -- but would that be a definitive test it's not a Dell computer?  Any other ways to diagnose the problem and pin it down?  I can conceivably still return the sound bar if I determine it's defect...

It is driving me nuts!! I now have about 600 copies of each file saved in my documents. Should I save what I need to save and remove my Word program and then reinstall it?

Any help would be greatly appreicated.

I must have deleted something that has to do with sound & volume control... I can not use my mic either...

WHAT GIVES & WHAT CAN I DO... besides reloading WinXP...???

A:Sound Control

Windows cannot display the volume control on the taskbar because the Volume Control program has not been installed. To install it use Add/Remove
Programs in Control Panel.

To resolve this issue, extract a new copy of Sndvol32.exe from the Windows
XP CD to the system_root \System32 folder on your computer's hard disk. To
do this, follow these steps:

Start/Run/CMD. In the command prompt window type:

X: (where X is your CD Drive letter)
CD \I386

Then use the expand command:
expand -r sndvol32.ex_ c:\windows\system32

Note: This assumes XP is installed on C: and that its installed in the
Windows folder. If not, you'll need to adjust the command accordingly.
Additionally, this must be an installable version of XP, not a "recovery

After removing malware my sound control no longer shows up in the sytem tray.

A:Sound Control

Try the fix at Kelly's Korner.Sound Icon - Enable - #316 on the right.Right click on it and save the .reg file to your desktop. Then, double click on the file icon (on your desktop) to merge it into your registry. You may need to reboot your computer for the changes to take affect.With any fix like this you should create a new restore point and backup the registry first. For backing up the registry I like to use ERUNT.

Was per application sound control dropped from vista? I am running vista home premium x64 with an external SB 24 Live audio card (I also have access to on board audio) and see no way to do per application sound control that was mentioned in the beta's.

A:Per app sound control

Hi pcmxa,

Left click on the speaker icon in the notification area of the taskbar (where the clock is situated) to bring up the master volume control. At the bottom is an option 'Mixer'. Click this, and all current applications running will have their own individual volume control available, as well as the master volume control and that for Windows Sounds. Each application can be separately controlled and muted from this panel. Of course, the settings on the master volume control affect everything else, and selecting mute here will mute everything else as well.

Rather odd. Do you have any other "wierd" things happen in Windows? Have you loaded or removed any software before you noticed this? Sounds like a conflict with some program running or a virus/worm. Run your up-to-date anti-virus software. I saw this in WIN98se, but other icons acted strange also. Random errors also. It was bad RAM.

Alright. So for some reason a file of mine was "unavailable."

I looked it up, and this thread http://forums.techguy.org/business-applications/746377-solved-word-2007-file-x.html already exists, except, it really doesn't make sense to me.

I cannot open my important file and I don't know how to fix this. On the previous thread, it is suggested that I delete my "AVG virus protection." The problem is that I don't have that to delete (I don't think).

I really need someone's help, please.
