I have tried several times to make ssd bootable. Was successful. But I have never found my SSD in the boot list option. Has anyone experienced anything similar?

Ok. This might be a little long winded but i will try to give as much information as possilbe. I started with Office 2003 and then tried the 2007 Student trial version. When it expired I could not get it to uninstall so I dealt with the annoying problem until my university got the Office Pro Plus 2007 Win 32 version for us students and installed it thinking it would fix the problem. It didn't. So I uninstalled 2007 and 2003, then used a registry cleaner to get rid of all of the old office entries that were dead and …

Rename any folder with extension {645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E} e.g., if we have a folder games press F2, then type, "games.{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}" see the magic.... then to get to original form, remove the extension using "ren games.{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E} games" in dos or as a bat file and you are done.. But the folder can be deleted. ~cheers~ :)

So apparently Microsoft Word’s latest release shows a grammar error if you do two spaces after a period, this ending the debate of which is correct. I used to do two spaces after a period back on my old Apple IIGS with its mono spaces font. However, I’ve always said that since the world of kerning has existed in word processor apps, just add a single space and the software will give it the proper amount of spacing after a period before the next sentence begins.

In an earlier Discussion post, I complained about MS changing my preference settings with each update. Since, I have found many more changes. One was, I had gone to CMD Properties and set CMD to always open with elevated privileges. You guesses it. It was switched back. With the 1909 Cumulative Update we lost our ability to search within folders. After trying eleven 'fixes' touted on the Internet, I had to uninstall these latest updates to get my search option back. I do wish MS would spend more time correcting errors such as this rather than on inventing witty and …

What with limited formal education and an IQ score only moderately above average, I have no trouble discerning the manipulative tactics of Microsoft. Their kindergarten psychology used to keep you attached to, and dependent upon, their proprietary products is less than amusing. This tit for tat, childish approach Of MS at keeping you 100% 'in the fold' is becoming quite tiresome, to say the least. My issue today is file type association. As far back as XP (and possibly before) file type associations were set in the Control Panel. Once set with your preferences, they had a tendency to stay …

I’m dealing with a small SSD, and a 1 terabyte HDD. My issue is half the programs you install these days don’t even bother asking you where you’d like to install. About 90% of them I’m fine having on the HDD. What on earth - if anything - can I do to move an entitled, SSD-privileged program to my HDD and how do I repair the ensuing errors it makes?

Here's something I've wondered about for years and never got around to asking. A recent example: I reinstalled Win 10. I transfered all data from Windows old to the new OS. When I highlight the Windows Old folder, it says it is empty. but when I start to delete the folder, the progression bar shows several hundred files being deleted. If the folder is empty, where do these figures come from? Thanks

I posted a question last week on Microsoft Technet and during the resulting discussion the following was posted: >VBScript will be gone in the next version of Windows. Almost all references to VBScript have disappeared from MS sites. In all the columns I've read about what's new and what's being removed from Windwos 10 in the spring update, no mention was made about vbScript. Has anyone else come across anything? I have a (rude word)-ton of scripts I'm going to have to convert unless I can just copy/restore cscript.exe and wscript.exe.

This is an extremely basic question, but I haven't found an answer yet. I recently purchased a brand-new computer with Windows 10 and at the moment am using the Microsoft Edge browser that came with it. I would like to open some offline (HTML) pages, but the Control-O feature to which I am accustomed in IE, Chrome, and Firefox, doesn't work. In the Edge browser, the hotkey Control-O resets the zoom level. Is there a replacement hotkey for Control-O in Microsoft Edge? Alternately, what is the non-hotkey method for opening an offline page in Edge? Note, I am *not* trying …

My wife got a VeryfitPro fitness monitor for Christmas. I have the app loaded on my Android (6) phone and was hoping to install a companion app on my Windows 10 laptop but the only thing available is to install an Android emulator on Windows 10 then load the phone app into that. I did a google search and found a list of the 7 best emulators. The list was 1. BlueStacks 1. Remix OS Player 1. Droid4x 1. MEmu 1. Nox Player 1. AMIDuOS 1. Windroy I tried Bluestacks and ended up at an online poker site. Remix resulted …

In keeping with tradition, Microsoft has released the latest update before resolving a number of outstanding issues. But at least they now provide a more centralized location for getting update information. The home page (dashboard) can be found [here](https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/release-information/) and the specific page for the latest update can be found [here](https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/release-information/status-windows-10-1903).

I'm asking this question in the context of a satellite internet service with expensive download limits... If you just accept all the recommended updates for Windows 10 (creator's update, security etc) for a single Home Edition machine how many Gigabytes will that represent in a typical 12 month period? Eg: I'm thinking maybe 5 gig for one major update plus maybe an average of 500 meg/month other stuff?
