Sluggish/nonresponsive "Save-As" and "Open" dialog boxes

Q: Sluggish/nonresponsive "Save-As" and "Open" dialog boxes

In any application under Win XP, when I use a Save As or Open dialog box, and click the down arrow next to the location box to search for the folder I want, the application never responds. Usually, I have to click the arrow a couple of times and then it sort of wakes up and responds, or the application crashes (the title bar of the dialog box will say "Not Responding".

Often, in the case of the Save As dialog, it won't say Save As in the upper left corner, only an "S" will appear there.

Seems like a memory issue or else something corrupt in the system. Before I shell out $35 to MS to have them fix something that shouldn't be broken, can anyone help???

Preferred Solution: Sluggish/nonresponsive "Save-As" and "Open" dialog boxes

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.)

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

Hey everyone,
        I am trying to get the REST queries to work with the sharepoint end points instead of graph end points. I first created an app with relevant permissions and have given it the admin consent.

This was working fine until a few days ago. Whenever I insert a DVD into either drive, I get no dialog box asking me what I want to do with the disc.

Also, whenever I go to "My Computer" and right click on the drive, the "Open With" option is now gone. It was there a week ago! I have had some Trojan stuff found by my anti-virus software and I don't know if it wiped it out.

I read in Microsoft website to make sure a specific registry key was there and it is there. So, I don't know how to get options back. The only way to play DVDs is to pull up the player (Power DVD or VLC) and click on Open Disc.

Also, I have never been able to play them in WMP because of multiple image effect.

Here is something wierd. The "open" dialog box of some programs and windows xp are missing the section on the left side where it has the my computer, recent documents, desktop, etc - that whole left side is grey!

I dont think this is program-specific because if I go to "start", then "run" then "browse", it is grey there and that is windows xp. I have noticed it in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Reader, Turbo Tax, but also in windows applications such as Movie Maker, windows media player, and both the Firefox AND internet explorer browsers!

It is NOT greyed out in Microsoft applications such as Word and Excel though. Does anyone have an idea what the problem might be?
 

A:"Open" Dialog Boxes Don't Look Right

Whenever I try to save any document in any Office 2013 program, nothing happens. When I press File>Save as F12, or ctrl+s, (on a new document) nothing happens. Any normal way to save a file, even saving customizations, does nothing. I just get the "working" mouse for a half a second. Nothing opens, but I can still work in the document (so I know it didn't just come up in the background). Has anyone else had this problem? Is there any way to fix it?

Relevant: I have Office 2003 installed. I've heard that causes problems. I'd be willing to uninstall them both and reinstall in the recommended order, but I'd lose my customizations. I can't save my customizations, because that requires the save as dialog.

A:Office 2013 won't open "save as" dialog.

Does this problem occur with both version of Office or only with Office 2013. Also are you having any problems with any other programs on your computer.

You could try repairing Office 2013. To do that open Control Panel, select Programs & Features, scroll down to Microsoft Office 2013, right click on it & select Change & this will show a couple of Repair options for you to try.

About one month ago, a new problem surfaced:

Most times when I try to "Save As" a document and the application calls Windows Explorer for me to Browse where to save the file, it hangs for upwards of 60 seconds. The Browse window appears, but then I get a "spinning circular cursor" for 45-60 seconds until I can do anything. This occurs in all applications from MSExcel through Internet Explorer.

The system never completely crashes, but there is always this 60 second lag now.

The lag also occurs when I try to open a document...and to a less extent, but sometimes, when I simply open Windows Explorer (Windows Explorer is inconsistent as to whether it will give me a lag...sometimes it does work fine).

I have previously tried posting in the malware forum. I had picked something up they found...and cleaned it out, but that seems to have been completely unrelated to this as it was a virus redirecting my Google searches.

Can anyone help?

This has been happening the majority of the time for the last week or so. I've scanned for viruses, spyware, etc., but that isn't the problem. Whenever I try to save as, nothing happens. The hour glass comes up for about a half a second and then nothing happens. The same when I try to click browse or when I try to open a file, like pictures. This has never happened before except the last few days. I had a problem with spyware, but I've since installed zone alarm and firefox instead of IE explorer, which I had to do because I was getting an error on IE and it wouldn't open. I hope someone can help. Thank you.

I am running Windows XP SP3, fully updated, on an Acer lap top PC.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".


Here are two pictures showing the problem with the .mp3's. The first is of Explorer showing the Duration as "Hours:Minutes":




The second picture is of the properties window of the first .mp3 in the list above:

You may want to reinstall the operating system.

Backupthe files that are importantto you before you reinstall.

The "New" installation will overwrite the current one

If you do not format your hard drive before the reinstall the installation should not harm your files (That's why I suggest backingup your files) and will speed up the installation process.

Hi everyone. I'm new to the forum. I am running Windows XP SP2 Home Edition.

Background. I was running Windows IE 7.2 beta no problems.
I decided to upgrade to Windows IE 7.3 beta the system would not. I removed 7.2 before trying to install 7.3 beta. I dropped back to IE 6 thinking it would run correctly, but I was wrong.

When I try to move a file using the "Copy to" or "Move to" window, the window frame displays, but there is nothing in it except at the top "Select the place you want to move "x" file, and then at the bottom of the window, "to view any sub folders click plus sign," Move, New Folder. The entire file system is missing where I could select a file to move to, example:
C:\ and all the sub folders are not displayed so I cannot select one. The system still works, but all the files are sent to C:\SW3\F2 which is most likely the last folder I accessed before this whole failure to install mess started.

Is there any way to restore the file system so I can select where I want to send my files when I copy and move without dragging them with two open windows?

Thanks. I have more questions, but this is enough to start with.

I appreciate the help. I really screwed this thing up. I am currently running IE6 with expanded stuff left over from the botched install attempt from IE 7.3 beta.

XP Home (installed SP2 recently, which MIGHT have something to do with this?).

Just saved two word docs and a bmp file, all separately. All three times I saw that a new location has been added to the Save As drop-down menu. It didn't open to My Documents folder but was in the general folder list of the whole computer. The location was called "FTP File Locations." It's never appeared on the Save As menu before. This made me think of the file/print sharing control, which is now located in the Windows Firewall, but I don't use that Firewall, I turned it off to use Norton. What was FTP Locations? And is there any way to disable file/print sharing without using the Windows Firewall? (These may be the same thing, I don't know.) Also, in Network Connections, I thought I'd find file/print sharing control there, but now XP wants me to run a whole Network Wizard thing..I'm afraid I'll somehow set up a network instead! or enable all kinds of things..I don't want to create a disaster here.

(My son installed an FTP program months ago for work he was doing, but the program was removed. I just searched for it, it's definitely gone.)

This is a stand-alone, non-networked home computer.

P.S. I saved another Word doc and now it's back to opening to My Documents folder as usual..now I can't find the FTP Locations anywhere.

My office just upgraded, and I can no longer use Windows XP. On this system, I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network, and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists. Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain. I had them installed in opposite vertical margins, and they were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used. Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin, and BAM! Sorry for the cliche, but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up, and I just don't think I can be as efficient without anything comparable.

Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows 7 GUI, and it's making me sick with rage! I see only the option to put a "toolbar" on an existing "taskbar", and no option to create any additional taskbars! This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar, plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick. When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button, the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient, much less cool about this at all! I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues, but I see none such in W7.

Can someone

Hi TimFF,
This might be related with the UAC settings, check this thread:
give full permission for the users in program
files folder
The steps in the above thread is not recommended.
For the short name usage, we may consider to create a directory-junction from
PROGRA~1 to C:\Program Files:
With the following commands:
mklink /J "C:\PROGRA~1" "C:\Program Files"
Reference:
Mklink

Whenever I save something on Win 7 with the standard "Save" dialog (such as used by Firefox or Microsoft Word), the filename is still there in the drop-down list for others to see. Where is that list stored? A search with RegEdit does NOT match any of the filenames listed there (I even do a partial search without case sensitivity, to no avail) so I don't know where they're being stored. It's very puzzling.

This should be completely trivial, but I don't see how to do it.

I'm visiting a website in IE (I don't think the browser actually matters) and right-click a picture. I am presented with a list of options including "Save picture as..." which I select.

This opens a dialog box that is browsing my "My Pictures" folder.

Once upon a time, the items in that folder appeared in alphabetical order. Now they don't.

If I open "My Pictures" directly (i.e. in Windows Explorer), they appear alphabetically, so it's not a folder property.

I can right-click the background in the list of icons, which gives me a menu that I can use to select "Arrange icons by" and then "Name." That does exactly what I want, but when I try to save another image in the same folder, it reverts to the previous behavior.

So there must be a way of changing the default behavior somewhere, but so far I haven't been able to find it.

Any suggestions?

A:[SOLVED] Default icon ordering in &quot;Save as...&quot; dialog?

Found it!

Apparently if you hold down the Ctrl key and click the red X in the upper right-hand corner to dismiss the dialog, it stores the current view settings as the new default.

Hi all,
This is a great board-- I have received a lot of help from here!
This is my next project.
Open the attached file and, on the right of the form, there are six cells with text.
I need to concatenate these with one space in between each one, then copy the group of them and use the clipboard to paste so I can open the "save as" dialog box and paste it as the filename. We need this in our environment to be able to create the file name quickly, paste it and save the file.
I want to be able to do this with a button that activates a macro.
You can see the button on the right side when you open the file. The macro assigned to it called "createfilename". The code is in module 1.
I got it started, but I know it needs help.
Thanks!

Greetings

The Windows 7 "Save As" dialog isn't as resizable as the XP version. Called "Save As" in Firefox, "Save Webpage" in IE.

If I could remove the search box to the right of the path at the dialog top I could make the dialog narrower and not obscure so much of the web page. When I tried shrinking search box relative to the path box, I couldn't eliminate it or make the dialog narrower because the path box widened.

I don't need the search box at all--the path and carats (little triangles to right of path parts) do fine.

Thank you for advice.

Hi mms2

Welcome to to forum.
I don't know if mozilla (Firefox) and IE actually share the same "dialog".
But I have found MozilaZine forum, for all things mozilla, very helpful.

Like you I would like to trim the c__p out of some dialogs.

I am running Windows 7 in 32 bit mode. When I go to create a folder in documents or on the desktop I right click and select "New". This opens a dialog list of functions. Everything is there but "Folder". What am I missing? Is there a Windows update missing? Is this normal for Windows 7???? There is a box at the top of the Documents page that says New Folder. When I select this box nothing happens?????? Where do New Folders go????

A:"Folder" does not appear in the dialog list when selecting "New"

The menu you are talking to is called the "Shell Context Menu", there is not a built in windows feature to change the contents of this Menu as it is generated from the registry.

go to NirSoft - freeware utilities: password recovery, system utilities, desktop utilities and get "ShellMenuView" and/or "ShellExView" which provides a simple interface for viewing and editing entries on this menu. The tools do not need to be installed, you just run them!

Hey Friends,

I guess its not only me having this, is it? Many of us have it right? so whats the thing which brings up this dialog box > Scan and Fix /or/ Continue without scanning > when you connect an external device to your computer?
i had some time some bad day of mine when i clicked on the Scan and Fix and the result was the windows converted a very large number of my files into .CHK files hidden in the HDD!! and i still cannot find a way to recover those most most important files of mine (they are text files). I did recover a large bundle of files, but not the ones i actually needed more than anything! those text files. i have gone through literally 30,000 files and recovered almost everything > videos, movies, images, and messed up bits of large installation files of softwares like AE broken down to many many small pieces... but that doesnt matter! that stuff can be recovered (softwares and movies and songs) but the text files are still among those .CHK files i have which are still more than 10,000.

Anyone have anything regarding this is more than Welcome to share their Knowledge.
Thanks.

When I have Internet explorer opened in "kiosk mode" on one monitor and I open a hyperlink from the other monitor it will open the link in a new IE window (non-full screen) .    If I do the same test with IE not in "kiosk mode"
the hyper link will open in the open window/tab. 

I have Internet Options -- Tab settings "Open links from other programs in"  set to "the current tab or window".  

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Okay, maybe not the most descriptive of titles, but the problem that I am experiencing is that from any application, opening up the "Save As" dialog box causes the application to hang or freeze for 20-60 seconds. This happens about 2/3 of the time, and it seems to happen in about 1/2 of my applications.

I've found numerous threads regarding this issue, but it seems that the main identifiable resolution is the following MS update.
The April 2010 stability and reliability update for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 is available

I found that link from here:
Windows 7 New Folder Very Slow

Obviously, I've applied that patch, and this installation of Win7 is a fresh install post reformat. Has anyone else continued to observe this annoying behavior? If so, has anyone found a viable means of eliminating the bug?

A:Win7x64 "Save As" Dialog Causes Hang

Are you running your 6 HD's as seperate drives?
I would make sure you have the latest chipset drivers for your motherboard, also check for a bios/firmware update. I would say its probably an issue with the storage management, as the computer is hanging when its figuring out where you can save the file.

Hello guys,

So I have had this weird thing happening where certain windows such as "Save As" won't load all the way initially. If I click on a link in the window, it refreshes and the window looks fine, but it will not load INITIALLY. I have a NVIDIA GTX 750 running 3 monitors all HDMI and absolutely NO ISSUES playing games on Steam or just using the computer doing anything else. I've even had 5 vm's running at the same time in VMWare Workstation and can drag windows all over the place and cannot reproduce the results. I posted this in the graphics card section because it effects almost every application that includes a "save as" window.

Possible Reason:
I first noticed this issue when I uninstalled F.Lux (https://justgetflux.com/) about two weeks ago. I tried to give it a shot, but the colors were too much change for me! I have read their FAQs and Forums and cannot find a match to my situation.

Things I have tried:
1. Safe mode - same thing happens.
2. Updating graphics card driver to newest version.
3. Restored back to a restore point prior to F.lux.
4. Adjusted graphics card settings in Nvidia Control Panel and Windows Color Management.
5. Virus scan and sfc /scannow - clean.
6. Tons of Google searches...
