Preferred Solution: YouTube™ Picture in Picture (Beta) Chrome Extension

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 found this BUG in Micrososft Word 2007, that I consider to be a SERIOUS ISSUE for Microsoft Office Suite.

If you copy an image from a website and paste in the Word file, the image pastes successfully the first time,
but as you go on & paste other images from the site,
the first image is repeated over and over again, in place of other images (which have the same dimensions).
All other text data remain same, the image titles remain same, but only the image is repeated over and over

Then use the Insert image option in word...

Hi all,

Super bizarre.

So I woke up this mornind to login into my PC and see that my profile pic is changed back to the previous one. I have not any changes myself.

skype is linked to microsoft account. (skype had my old picture)

other option is that someone logged into my outlook and chaged profile picture then it got synced...

I cannot find any information on why or how picture would revert. ( even more so on a specific date )

any ideas or leads ?

Hello newbiew, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Since you Microsoft account is synced by default, then it most likely automatically changed back after syncing.

If you wanted to have the same user account picture for all devices, then changing it for everything should help.

If you only wanted to change it on this PC, then you could turn off syncing for Appearance under "Personalization settings" using the tutorial below.

It turns out that if I download a picture file to the photo app in 8.1, without putting it in a particular pre-existing folder, the file goes into the general area of the app displayed alongside several other non-related pictures. Okay, no problem. But for the life of me, I can't figure out how to then move a single image file into one of the pre-existing folders I had created at an earlier time. If your suggestion is to open both the folder and the picture file side by side on the screen and then click and drag, I have no idea how to do that. Is there no way to right-click the image and find a way to select "move to", or something along those lines; or is there a pull-down menu that I can't find with the app open that contains a command to "move to"?
Any suggestions?
Thanks so much,
San Francisco

A:How to move a picture file on 8.1 to a picture folder...

Well, you have many options. What you are looking for is this:

Context Menu - Add Copy To Folder and Move To Folder - Windows 7 Help Forums

But you can just copy the pics and paste them into the folder you like.

The side by side is easy too. Just open the source folder and press WIN + Right arrow. Then open the target folder and press WIN + left arrow, Now you can drag and drop from one folder to the other.

I have tried to find an answer to this but cannot. Lately, I noticed my User Account Picture was not the picture I had selected. In addition, the Background Picture for my Windows 7 Home Premium edition log on screen was changed. This happened after running a program that is for exams at school which reboots your computer into a safe mode where the only program available is a rudimentary word processor.

I contacted the company that makes that software, Examsoft, and they told me how to get my default logon picture for my Windows Logon background back.

To address the User Account picture, I went into Control Panel > User Accounts and attempted to "change picture". This is not an option, however, for my administrator user account. It is an option for my guest account. I tried cloning my account without the bad .dat files, but that didn't work either as the new account I had created, also an administrator account, did not display a "change picture" option in control panel either.

I ran sfc /scannow, and it found no errors.

I am not sure what to do. Has anyone encountered this? Can you please help me?

Attached is a screen shot:

Thank You.

I got a idea for a Chrome extension, but no where to request it. When you install extensions in Chrome it places all the extensions to the right side of the address bar. My idea is to have a extension bar below the bookmark bar that automatically hides it's self when the mouse isn't hovering over. You can keep the chrome browser screen estate but not have your extensions obstruct room, making things look cleaner.

A:Is it possible for this picture to do what it says it did?

Could it be a left over april fool's joke? A few sites pull stunts like that. A jpeg itself can't submit something unless it was a virus in a form which none of those came out even after the patch to protect against that from what I know. What would have happened is the site you logged onto would pull your IP address and then record that, they would then bring it to a judge or your ISP and try to get a subpoena and your real name/address, then they would hit you with an indictment for whatever you did.

I have seen this problem with AGP cards that have to be reset sometimes. Since your video is on board, it could have been just static build up with your monitor. Remember these monitors are capable of sometimes 20,000 volts coming from the flyback so sometimes this power can leak to certain ground frames on the chassis. I know this sounds very strange but believe me it can happen!

I need help before I go insane. I have Vista Ultimate 64 bit and Media Center is giving me so many problems. In media Center I am trying to watch Live TV but it looks bad. Downloaded Videos work fine and so do DVD's. But when I go to live tv thats where the problem is. Video is choppy it shows only in 4:3 aspect ratio and not 16:9 aspect ratio. The Actual Media Center is full screen just not the tv picture. I was using A Visiontek 550MCE TV card but that is only analog so I upgraded to a Gateway ASUS PCIe ATSC/QAM/NTSC TV Tuner Card and still the same problems. And no digitlal signal. I have RCN cable. In the bedroom I have a set top box but in the living room it just goes strait to the TV. Connected directly to the tv it works great I get HD channels and all(No payper view). I have the following set up:
Motherboard: Asus M3A32-MVP Deluxe/WiFi-AP
Processor: AMD Phenom X4 Quad-Core 9600
Memory: G.SKILL DDR2 PC2 8500 4GB kit
Video card: MSI RX3870-T2D512E OC
Tv Card: Gateway ASUS PCIe ATSC/QAM/NTSC TV Tuner Card
Old Tv Card: Visiontek 550MCE

I was even thinking about using a differnt program like beyond Tv. Please any help would be great.

A:Bad picture

The 4:3 ratio may be dependent on whats being broadcast. Also have you set your monitor/TV in MC settings to 16:9?

Choppy playback is usually either a) poor reception b) bad codec c) dodgy video driver.

Have you installed any codec packs? Tried a few different video drivers?

hiya everyone, i want to move some pics from a really old computer that i have to the computer that i have now, Both computers are running xp so is there another way of doing it instead of burning them on to disk and then transfering them, Cheers


You could network the two computers and then move the files...you could remove the hard drive from the old and attach it to the new and move the files...there are other ways but these seem the two easiest to me.If the pictures are in My Documents...you will probably also need to take ownership of the folders there, if you move the hard drive to the new system.How to take ownership of a file or folder in Windows XP - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308421 Louis

How does this relate to networking?

Sounds like you need to contact whatever site you're trying to upload the picture to.
