I've been experiencing difficulties with the copy & paste function in Word. This is a recent development and I don't know the cause of it.
Whenever I try to copy an object/picture in Word and especially from Word to another program like Powerpoint, the image that is copied is the last copied image.
For example: Let's say that I copied a butterfly from Word to Powerpoint. The butterfly pasted successfully. Next, I copy a kitten from Word but in Powerpoint the butterfly is pasted again. This happens every time I try to copy/paste a new image.
I checked the clipboard and can see that the image of the butterfly is stored there, even though I copied the kitten. I hit "clear all" and copied the kitten again and clipboard stores the butterfly instead.

How do I correct this problem? Since this never happened before, what could I have inadvertently done to cause this error? Thank you for your help.

I often find that when I copy some text, a few letters long, which has different fonts, different font size, and different colours all in it, when I try to paste it, it comes out in a completely different font, different font sizes, and different colours - most times.
Sometimes it will paste correctly as original, then sometimes in comes out in the strangely different font and colours etc.
If I copy the entire line that this text is on, it always pastes out correctly, as original.
But when I just copy a small piece of the text (which has different fonts in it, etc), it comes out all peculiar.
I do not know what to do.
Please advise...

My HP Notebook - 15-r264dx TouchSmart (ENERGY STAR) - Will not power on. After dissasembling it, I found that the connection between the small board containing the power button and the 4 wire ribbon cable that leads back to the motherboard was broken. I tried to fix it by pressing the four wires onto their contacts, and pressing the power button then. That did not work, probably indicating that once the connection is broken, it cannot be put back. So I either need to find a fix for that, or purchase a replacement part. The part is: TMT YA-4A1  54V-0  E114139 (It would need to be both the power button chip and the ribbon cable, connected.) ps. The computer works aside from the power button malfunction, as I touched two of the contact wires in the ribbon cable together and it turned on. Also, I do not know whether it is a 64 bit or 32 bit, but I doubt that will have any weight on the solution.

i have a windows xp home o/s on a dell dimension 8200
last week i casually deleted my video driver instead of a similarly named program which i did not want. for several days i could not see anything on my monitor. while i was out getting the startup discs from my brother in law who has the same computer (system and all) because my house ate my set, my sister was trying to "help" fix it by putting in the emergency boot and repair disks i made for a different computer... a dell 4300 with ME o/s... and when i got back... well, lets just say i was unhappy.

the computer refused to acknowledge that i had a hard drive so i popped in the o/s cd from dell and added another partition so now i can see and use my computer.

now, is there any way i can get my other information back? when i open computer management, and click on disk management i see two partitions on Disk 0 :

( )
37.27 GB FAT
Healthy (EISA Configuration)

(C: )
37.25 GB NTFS
Healthy (System)

if i make the ( ) the active partition it goes back to being unable to load (but still there)

any thoughts on this situation (besides what i can do to my sister) would be very much appreciated.

try Partition magic or Disk magic. You may be able to re-activate your partition with those. Otherwise you'll need a program to recover your files. I just used File Scavanger ($40) to recover files from a hard drive that got trashed from a major system failure. I regained 80% of my files, fortunately about 95% of my most important ones. Most of the other programs are $90 & up. Good luck and make your sister pay for these programs

I recently reformatted my main (of 2) partition (holding Windows XP home and program files, the C drive) due to a virus. All my files were on a 2nd partition (D) that wasn't formatted in order to save my files. After reinstalling WinXP, I then moved my files to the OS partition, and formatted the 2nd partition as well, trying to give my whole drive a good clean. Unfortunately, when rebooting, my machine wouldn't start up because "NTLDR file is missing".

I realized it was looking for NTLDR on the D: drive (Files drive) and thus solved the problem by using my XP setup CD to copy NTLDR, ntdetect.com, and Boot.ini on to the D: drive. Then I ran Bootcfg from the XP setup CD recovery consol to set Boot.ini to point to my windows XP installation on the C: drive. So, now it starts up fine, but clearly my computer is recognizing the D: partition as the "Active" partition, when the C: partition really should be it!

So, I would like to get things back to normal but I can't figure out how to reset which partition is considered "Active". When I use PartitionMagic, the option to "Set as Active..." my C: partition is unavailable, in part, I suspect, because for some reason my OS partition (with WinXP on it, C is set up as a "Logical" partition, and not a "Primary" partition. Furthermore, there is this unexplained "Extended" partition w/ no drive letter that is exactly the same size the C: drive. I read th... Read more

Sure enough when i bought a new one it worked. But what I also have noticed is that now other things on my computer are dieing. My DVD drive can not read most disks, the only one i was able to get it to read was Minority Report, and just yesterday windows explorer stopped working on my computer even after a restart. i looked online and found that this could be because windows cant find hardware that should be there. i dont know what to do. im getting the vista disk from a friend today to reinstall but i have a feeling that thats not the problem.

I am working on a sales commission spreadsheet and am looking for a way to enter a record of a customer/sale on a line on 1 sheet (ex: May sales) and upon a trigger (entering a value in a cell when the job is closed) have the customer record (or better yet selected cells or fields from the record) copied to a line on a second sheet (ex: May closed jobs) where commissions would be calculated based in part on the date the job was closed. There are incremental commissions paid depending on the cumulative sales closed in the month so the copied records would need to populate the second sheet in chronological order upon being "triggered". Hope this makes sense, any ideas? Of course i could manually copy them at the correct time but would like something where the closed date is entered ahead of time with the original record on sheet 1 and upon entering a trigger (confirming the job is in fact closed) it auto populates sheet 2.

Search changed quite a bit in Word 2007 where the function changed to Windows instead of Word or Office. Unfortunately, you did not tell us what version.

control -F able

It is almost scary but I understand that.

The only way you can make it control -F able, that I know of, is to have something unique in that section to search for and I'm not sure of what that might be that would not be out-of-place in your document. You could highlight or change the font color so you could easily scroll through and spot it. Special characters may work for you.

You might also look into Indexing your document so you have an Index table in the beginning of your doc that has links to sections being indexed. It has been many years since I have done that, so you may have to do some research but you can start with Create an index and update an index - Word and Creating an Index of a Word 2007 Document - For Dummies.

I have an Asus Eee PC, WIN7, no inst. media. The touchpad stopped working (a common problem on many Asus Eee PCs I learnt) , during an Asian trip, so I had it repaired by a local shop.

I started to use a backup software (EaseUS) to make backup part. images on a "restore" part. and it worked well. However, during the last backup about ten days ago (due to the terrible heat here?) I must erroneously have clicked "backup partition - i. e. a plain partition files copy instead of partition clone alternative. Few days ago I made a bad download, which I could not get rid of, so I wiped out the system partition and attemped to restore the system ,only to find that on the restore partition I had not a part. clone, but a plain WIN7 partition files copy, so no restore was possible.

I am building a form in Word 97 for our Company's inspectors to submit their report data in. The top half of the form is basically a table with Text Form Fields for data such as "Client", "Vendor", "Job #", etc. while the bottom half is an open text area where the inspectors report details of each job.

The form format has worked very well for the less computer literate members of the team as they do not have to worry about any formatting issues and simply tab from spot to spot and enter their information. Otherwise, they normally get all tangled up with table margins, etc and end up changing things and we lose the standardized appearance of the document. Unfortunately, the more advanced members of our team find the form format to be limiting to work in (formatting options, cut & paste, spell-check, etc. not available).

What I am hoping to be able to do is lock the top portion of the document and leave the bottom portion where they enter their "free-text" reports un-locked so they can use any features they need here. Is there any way this can be done? Should I be doing this in an altogether different way than forms in Word?

Hi folks
Please bear with me, I haven't used Windows for a long time now, switched to Linux 2002 so I am a complete newbie in this area.
I need to create a script on a server running Windows Server 2008R2, and I simply can't find good how-tos (googled for 2 days now...)

What I want to do is to automatically move files to a different directory.
The files are sent in via ftp to a ftp-server (OpenSuse), the ftp-directory is mounted in Windows using Windows-services-for-NFS.
To know that the ftp-transfer is completed before the file is moved, a controlfile is created by a script on the ftp-server after a succesful upload.
So, when file " gustav\myfile.txt.dl_complete_02122012 " exists, then move " gustav\myfile.txt " and " gustav\myfile.txt.dl_complete_02122012 " to " D:\transport\gustav\ "
Create the directory " D:\transport\gustav " if it doesn't exist.

Get a list of files recursively is no problem - works with " for /R %%d in (*.*) do echo %%d "
Now I need to do 2 things:
1) extract the directory from the lines that " FOR .. " gives, without " Z: "
2) read the filename including ".dl_complete", and get the filename of the original file - " myfile.txt " in this example.

What it all boils down to is " how do I assign a part of a line to a variable? "
As mentioned I have searched a lot but haven't found anything useful.
I'm not asking for you ... Read more

Hello everyone,

I am completely stumped and I hope to find some help from someone here... I am trying to format an excel spreadsheet that has over 10k records is a very strange format. Please see attachment...

I have created the logic to grab the numbers to the left of the "carrot" in cell E3 and replicate that number in cells B3 B4 B5 B6 B7 B8 B9 B10. That process is replicated to pull the numbers to the left of the "carrot" in cell E13 and replicate that number in cells B13 B14 B15 B16 B17 B18 B19 B20...And so on and so fourth. The problem I am stumped on is how do i replicate this process all the way down the spreadsheet?

One FYI is that each record "bock" is not always (as in the example spreadsheet) 10 lines it can be 11/12/13 or more lines. Basically the record starts at the letters "MSH" (see A1) So I the logic I am thinking of is to push the code in red in the "E" cells to the "B" column after the "EVN" (in cell A2) and to stop before the "MSH" (in cell A11) and continue that process down the spread sheet.

I hope this is not too confusing but I have been banging my head on the wall for hours and just cant figure it out. Thank you all for your help

Microsoft is finally a part of the Open Source Initiative

It might be an understatement to suggest that Microsoft and the open source movement have not had the best history. Amid accusations of anti-competitive practices and trying to stifle Linux at every stage it could, many a diehard Linux fans to this day have a bad taste in their mouth when hearing the company's name.

That's started to change in recent years, though, as the company has increasingly become more receptive to open source software and started working closely with many organisations in the community. Perhaps most notably, Microsoft last year joined the Linux Foundation as a platinum member and followed that up this year by joining its Cloud Native Computing Foundation offshoot.

In that vein, the company this week also joined the Open Source Initiative (OSI) as a premium sponsor. OSI is a non-profit organisation intent on fostering the development of open source software for almost two decades now and Microsoft's joining the ranks marks another step in the company's gradual embrace of the open source community. On the occasion, OSI released the following statement praising Microsoft's contributions to open source collaboration in recent years:
The company is a leading contributor to open source software projects on GitHub (also an OSI Corporate Sponsor); brought Bash/Linux to Windows 10; expanded its support for Linux and open source workloads on Azure; worked with OSI Affiliate M... Read more

Summary:Microsoft is planning to roll out a new browser when it debuts Windows 10, according to sources. But IE isn't going completely away.

There's been talk for a while that Microsoft was going to make some big changes to Internet Explorer in the Windows 10 time frame, making IE "Spartan" look and feel more like Chrome and Firefox.

It turns out that what's actually happening is Microsoft is building a new browser, codenamed Spartan, which is not IE 12 -- at least according to a couple of sources of mine.

Thomas Nigro, a Microsoft Student Partner lead and developer of the modern version of VLC, mentioned on Twitter earlier this month that he heard Microsoft was building a brand-new browser. Nigro said he heard talk of this during a December episode of the LiveTile podcast.

A few days ago I noticed in the task managers App History tab that Edge had logged 925 MB in the past month, more than all other applications combined. When I went to Edge settings, I tried to delete saved history etc.. I turns out I wound up deleting saved log-ins and passwords in Windows/Internet Explorer. I did not realize that they are interconnected, is there any to recover them?
Microsoft keeps trying to get us to use Edge but it does not have the same functionality as Internet Explorer....Logman

You may want to check, but on my Vista I don't see any new add-on and I don't even have C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Search Enhancement Pack folder. http://arstechnica.com/microsoft/news/2010...lbar-update.ars As part of its regular Patch Tuesday, Microsoft released an update for its various toolbars, and this update came with more than just documented fixes. The update also installs an add-on for Internet Explorer and an extension for Mozilla Firefox, both without the user's permission. As you can see in the Windows Update screenshot above, Microsoft does not indicate that the update will install anything for either browser. It's also not really clear what the installed extension actually does.

Is this part of the MSE? I can't turn it back on, first trying to figure out what this is?

A:Confused? Is "Action Center" part of the Microsoft Security Essentials?

Action Center is baked into Windows 7. It replaces XP's "Security Center" (and whatever Vista had...I don't remember).

Microsoft Security Essentials is an anti-virus program made by Microsoft. Is is a separate entity from the Action Center, but the two interact to provide you with information about your computer (specifically whether or not MSE is up to date).


What exactly are you trying to turn back on?
