File name in use cannoter save & Any way to save folder views

Q: File name in use cannoter save & Any way to save folder views

Firstly, my employee's are running into a problem where they cant save their files because the file is "in use" according to windows 7.

What i've narrowed it down to is the fact that windows uses the files to display details or even a preview of the file whether it be a thumbnail or a window pane preview of the file or even simple details barring it from saving the file after it is opened, edited, and ready to be saved.

I have disabled all the obvious frills that might be conflicting such as: "file previews, show thumbnails etc." just cant quite get this resolved.

Also, windows 7 and its short term memory loss wont allow some of my employees to save their favorite folder views (I understand that windows 7 tried to implement a more functional window mode, allowing users to have multiple view for their different folders) but the "pick one and stick with it option" of "Apply to all folders" the obvious approach doesnt work. Or merely works for a few days then reverts. I've seen regedits about changing the "bag size" and such but that looks a little more involved than i want to get with the registry, also potentially affecting something in the process.

Any tips?

Preferred Solution: File name in use cannoter save & Any way to save folder views

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 just got a brand new PC with Win 7, and it won't save my folder views. I want some folders to have a 'list' view, others to have a 'thumbnail' view, etc. But whenever I change the view for one folder, it gives every other folder the same view. What's wrong with this? It appears to have nothing to do with saving folder views in the folder settings.

The computer involved is using Windows 7 Pro 64bit and Office Professional Plus 2010.

I am having a problem I cannot find a solution to. I have one user at a clients location that has recently stopped being able to save excel files in their my documents. The my docs is being redirected to a server. The files open correctly and can be edited, but when save is clicked an error box says the document not saved. Using cntrl-shift-i I found the error code to be 100490. I can open any other file and save them just fine. And any new excel documents can be opened and saved correctly. The file can be saved into the same folder using save as is and the document is renamed. However, the user cannot erase the old file.

Doing some digging I made sure the trust zone was enable for the network path and trusted locations on a network were allowed. They had already been configured.

Is there any way to set the default save location folder for downloads in IE8 to the last folder that the same file type was saved in? It makes no sense to default to a single folder and have to browse through to the desired folder for every single download, so I assume there has to be an option somewhere.

Limited choice here. Pictures (right click, save picture as) will save to My Pictures. Else, right click save will save to the last folder used.

One of my user is having this problem on her Windows XP PC:

Dell GX260 with Windows XP Professional running 512MB RAM, Office XP, Acrobat 5.0

When opening a Word file & edited in Word XP, the user cannot SAVE or use SAVE AS the file, when try to exit out the file, get prompt to either SAVE, CLOSE, or CANCEL the file, at that point it will still not save the file, the only way to exit the file is to hit CLOSE to exit.

I initially thought this might be a Word Xp problem, so I ran the repair tool in Office XP, that did not fix it.

I then uninstalled Office XP, reinstalled Office XP, but that also did not fix the problem.

I then ran the Office update to download the latest patches from MicroSoft, but that also did not fix the problem.

I then UNINSTALLED Acrobat 5.0 from the PC, that FIXED the problem.

WITHOUT Acrobat 5.0 on her PC, the user was now able to open & edit a Word file, and able to SAVE the edited file, also able use SAVE AS to save the file as a new copy.

I then reinstalled Acrobat 5.0 thinking the previous copy of Acrobat 5.0 on the PC might be corrupted, as soon as Acrobat 5.0 was back on the PC, the same problem with the SAVE feature came back in Word XP.

I then installed the patch update for Acrobat 5.0, that did not fix the problem.

With regard to clearing lists of [recently opened and/or saved] file names in Windows file dialog boxes, Orbital Shark had described the following procedure (from his 01 Nov., '10 post-) How to Clear This Dialog Box ? :

"If you want to selectively clear the Common Dialog file names MRU, you need to delete these two registry keys manually:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ ComDlg32 \ LastVisitedPidlMRU

HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ ComDlg32 \ OpenSavePidlMRU"

My question is as follows (and it is probably a silly one, therefore please bear with me and thank you):

Is the prescribed procedure to delete the *actual keys* ("LastVisitedPidlMRU" & "OpenSavePidlMRU"), or instead to delete the *contents* of those keys? i.e.: Should I select/highlight the key within the left panel of the Regisgtry Editor, and then select delete; or should I select/highlight the key within the left panel, and then select/highlight in the right panel all the contents of that respective key, and then delete all those contents (not the actual key itself) indicated in the right panel?

Thanks much for your patience and for your help! Win

A:file save to temporary folder

I think wat you are saying is that when you click to download something you cant choose if you want to save it or if you want to just open it. If this is so, follow these steps.
1. Open My computer
2. Control Panel
3. Folder Options
4. Click File Types tab
5. Select the file extension you wish to be able to safe (Example: .zip, .exe, .rar, etc)
6. Click advanced button
7. Check "Confirm open after download

You will have to do this for every file extension that you need it to be done for, but only once. I hope this helps

On my work computer (Windows 7 Enterprise), I've noticed a very strange and troublesome bug appears when navigating the Save-As directory.  The usual Google searches are utterly fruitless and bloated with far-off tangents completely unrelated to this
issue... and a search of this forum and help library are equally helpless, so I thought I'd try a more direct approach.

I use custom shortcuts to zip through my folder hierarchies (my personal way of organizing stuff, since I use tons of folders).  I simply ctrl+C (copy) the folder I want to link to, then right-click and pick "paste shortcut", to make my
little quick-link.  That's what I mean by "shortcut" henceforth (nothing to do with keyboard shortcuts).
So, in any program (for example, AutoCAD 2013), pick "Save As..." and the standard browsing dialogue box opens up.  Normal behavior is opening a folder to save the file in it, or going up a level.  No problem.
The issue happens when clicking through one of those shortcuts I mentioned above.  When you do this, Win7 inexplicably (and very annoyingly) changes the existing SaveAs filename (default, or one you entered) to the name of that shortcut instead, destroying
the original filename in the process.
An example: create a folder in your My Documents, then a shortcut for it (as explain above).  Now try saving an image from Wikipedia or something, into that folder you just created.  If you get th... Read more

2. Select it and then press ctrl + C and right-click on destop choose paste shortcut(named New folder-Shortcut);
3. Right-click on a picture in one webpage then open the save picture as dialog box;
4. Navigate to the desktop folder shortcut and double-click into it, the file name field won't change;
5. My machine is Windows 7 Enterprise SP1.
Would you please tell some more details on how you saved the picture?

Hello readers,

I was wondering whether there is a way to tweak IE6 so that the default web page saving scope is a Dragnet-style "just-the-HTML-facts, ma'am," rather than the complete page with all the graphics from the advertisers etc.

I dislike manually having to override the default prewired into the product every time I want to save HTML ONLY.

Thanks for your help!

The only way I have seen, is to completely disable the save as web page complete. It will then default to save as web page, html only. But the save as webpage complete is missing altogether.

Open up regedit.

Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Infodelivery\Restrictions

Double click the NoBrowserSaveWebComplete and set the value data to 1

Hi all

Just a stupid little problem with W7 I noticed which is VERY confusing but simple to fix.

I changed via the dialog the TEXT SIZE via the screen resolution in the control panel to CUSTOM SIZE.

With one of the newer "Cinema" or Very Wide screen (1680 X 900) displays after I'd increased the text size to over 160 % I didn't get the possibility to SAVE any documents any more via the SAVE AS button. The SAVE dialog would appear but the SAVE button was missing.

The effect was noticed in Office 2007 (all programs) Notepad etc etc.

Seems to be a Windows fault as this should not be allowed to happen.

on more traditional "Squarer" type monitors -- no problem.

I couldn't find the answer by googling but a bit of "trial and Error" fixed the problem.

A:Copied flash to harddrive, and Cannot save edited file in folder.

What you did was to clear the Read Only attributes for this folder, sub folders and files. In FAT32 this is enough.

But in NTFS file system, you have to check the file permissions along with the ownership also for the folder.

To check the file permissions, right click on your flash folder in My Documents, select Properties - Security Tab.

Here under your username check the file permissions. Do you have full control?

Click on Advanced - Owner tab and press Edit button. Now select your username and put a check mark on Replace owner on subcontainers and objects and press OK button twice to return to the folder Properties dialog box.

Now click Advanced button, and make sure your username has full control permissions. If not click on Change Permissions and remove the tick mark on include inheritable permissions from this object's parent. Click Add button on the opened dialog box. Select your username and press Edit button. In the opened dialog box, put a check mark on Allow at full control, select Apply to this folder, sub folder and files. Keep another check mark on Apply permissons.... in the bottom of the screen and finally press OK button. Now close all the dialog boxes.

This then is saved in the relevant folder. So in the end I would end up with

Also the macro script would ensure that the macro was disabled in the saved file.

Hi,

I've been searching for most parts of the net and the forums here and did install/uninstall/restore my notepad, paint and wordpad but nothing seems to work.

When these files are opened, nothing seems to be a problem. But whenever you attempt to save by Ctrl+S, or the by clicking File>Save or File>Save As the program automatically closes. This has been a consistent behavior for the 3 softwares.

I'm using Windows XP 64 bit OS and had no error messages of any sort except that these programs just close themselves when a save attempt is done.

I did virus and malware scans by Avast, ESET Nod & Kaspersky and nothing was detected.

Hey there, mates.

Got this small issue, and can't find an answer. Sorry in advance if it's lame.

I have a setup with Windows 7 Pro and Outlook 2007 Pro. When receiving emails with attached emails and saving those attachments, Outlook always goes to a default folder (Say %userprofile%\Documents). Is there a way to force Olk2007 to point to last location an attachment was saved to? I thought it might be W7 issue, but couldn't get through on that front either. Ideas?

TIA!

I searched all over the web and micorsoft's web site. I tried every suggestion made such as:

Disconnect net work drives.
Rename Normal.dotm
Run office diagnostics
Disconnect HP Printers
Finally this worked:

and run Mr. Fixit.

I hope this saves you some time. I spent over 2 hours.

I've just started using my new desktop pc which I bought specifically to download stuff from the internet and to my horror it wants to save everything in my temp internet files folder. Does anyone know how to change this please? I've tried messing about with the security settings but that didn't solve it. I've seen a few threads on here but have yet to find an answer.

Now wishing I'd stuck with my old pc on XP!!!

Thanks

While I have sent feedback into Microsoft, I thought I might post here aswell.
In IE9 when you click a download, a pop-up from the bottom asks 'Do you want to open or save file.xxx from x.com' then gives you the option to 'Open' 'Save' or 'Cancel'
During testing, we found that users would just click 'Save' then not know where the file they downloaded went. After explaining that it was in the downloads, they complained that previously they just chose where to save the file and it saved there. Now they
have to open downloads and copy paste to the location.
We could teach the users to always drop down and select 'Save as' but I can tell you it would be a lot easier if there was a group policy, or a default we can change so the default was 'Save as'
Other than that, I have no complaints :D.

Running Windows 7 on my desktop. (MS Word on my Windows 10 Dell laptop is trouble-free.) It constantly freezes (every 3rd or 4th time I save during an editing session) on save or save as....have to reboot the program. Happens on all docs. Looked this issue up online, the "solutions" didn't work for anyone. I uninstalled/reinstalled to no avail....it was solid for 3 days, now back to freezing. Any ideas?

I've recently had two problems with my system, which I believe are both due to the same underlying cause.

The first problem is that no folder views are saved. If I change the view, exit the folder, and re-enter the folder, the view will have reset to 'Details'. This applies to every folder, including libraries. I have already tried several things which solved this for others, none of which have worked for me.

The other problem is that file association does not save chosen programs, and won't even open files at all when 'Open with' is used. If I click 'Change...' (Opens with) under a file's properties, it allows me to choose a program. After choosing, nothing changes. Similarly to the first problem, I have tried every solution I can find and all have failed.

I believe this may be something related to file permissions or registry permissions, as I first noticed these issues when I disabled UAC completely through the registry editor (see Disable UAC completely). It may have started before, so don't assume this is definitely the root of the problem. NOTE: I have since re-enabled UAC through the same method, and this has not fixed either of the problems.

PS: I'm a very experienced computer user, so to save both my time and your own, keep solution instructions to a minimum.

A:Folder views and file associations not saved

The other problem is that file association does not save chosen programs, and won't even open files at all when 'Open with' is used. If I click 'Change...' (Opens with) under a file's properties, it allows me to choose a program. After choosing, nothing changes. Similarly to the first problem, I have tried every solution I can find and all have failed.



of course the option will change depending on the file type.

Received a few MS Excel files from an outside vendor as e-mail attachment. I am able to save the attachement to My Doc or desktop and then open or open them directly from Outlook 2003 or 2007.

But when I tried to save the doc with or without making changes, the spreadsheet just sits there and saying Saving at the bottom. I waited several miniutes to be saved, but it just sits there. It does not taking any extra resources. On Application event viewer, it just displayes application hang error.

Just in the last day or so, I noticed that when I download something, like a zip file for instance, I am no longer prompted to save or Save As. It just starts downloading to a temporary folder. When it's done, WinZip opens and I'm forced to extract the files without being able to just save the zip file. I can right click and "Save As", but I long for the days of convenient downloading...
Thanks for the help!
Btw, I did check the options for both IE5 (runs on Win98) and WinZip (ver.8) and didn't see anything that seemed to apply to the situation.

------------------
 

A:Solved: No 'Save or Save As' prompt when downloading

Apparently I'm wasting bandwidth, because I just figured out the solution. It was in the file associations, of all places, and there was a tick box (oooh, nasty) that said "Confirm open on download".
Well, thanks for at least having these forums here, even if I didn't need it this time!

I know I've done this before. I get on a free wav download site, find a wav file and can't save it.

I've tried playing it in a new window and trying the "file" and "save as" feature, but it is always greyed out and can't be used. Same with right clicking. It greys out the option to "save target". Do I need to change something in my Internet Options or am I just losing it?

Help! and Thanks in advance.

I have a Toshiba A55 laptop. I am running XP Home SP2 and Office Professional 2003 SP2. All utilites function normally with the exception of Word. The file menu shows "save" and "save as" to be disabled (greyed out). It will save with control-S, and I am able to save to any location I want. I am not receiving any error messages. All updates for XP and Office are current. No viruses or other malware. I have seen issues with Ofice SP2 concerning HP systems but they usually either lock up or generate errors. I do not have either of these problems. I have been looking for a solution for a few days to no avail. Any suggestions would be helpful.
 

A:Word 2003 save/save as disabled

I found my own solution. Apparently, the normal.dot template became corrupted. Deleted the file, and did not let word reload the saved version, creating a new one. Fixed the problem. Wanted to post in case someone else was dealing with the same issue.
