Unless I've missed one, I have selected every combination of Sort By and Group By for displaying files and sub folders in a given folder. I cannot seem to get the default display as was in previous versions of Windows That default display was: All sub folders first, in numerical, then alphabetical order. Then, all single files displayed in numerical, then alphabetical order. I am losing a lot of time with the display as it is now. Does anyone know the correct settings to achieve this particular display? Thanks

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?

I'm getting numbers. Any suggestions? I've searched for a few hours to get this done and I'm having a difficult time. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Hi. I have recently a problem to access to sites https in all browsers. In the past I had a similar situation and that the problem was solved by removing Bytedefender. Now, I have no antivirus, Windows security only, and there is an app called Lenovo VANTAGE in which the wifi security is disabled. I use Windows 10 and the firewall works. I googled many posts on the web and didn't reach how to repair my problem. My access to Internet is by hotspot by my phone. The An example of message when I try to click a site is …

What "Hello World" is to the console, the "Bouncing Ball" is to the Graphical User Interface. Nothing fancy, the ball is created via a call to the API function ellipse() and then bounced within the confines of the windows form. For the DEV C++ crowd: Let me know if you find these snippets somewhat helpful in your learning process in the comments section at the end.

Frustration might be one of the common problem that we experience. There might be one thing that we have limited control over access to our network. Secondly, networking problems includes interference, overlapping Wi-Fi channels, and signal being blocked by walls/ceilings.

If Outgoing Message Queues are temporary, when does it disappear from compmgmt.msc when they are suspended and cleared, and the application only uses local message queues afterword? What is their lifecycle? Is there a way to delete them? Best Regards,

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.

Dear all I'm trying to track down the name/existence of software that I used in 1999 to 'write' a financial reporting system - it was a curious mix of spreadsheet with programming capability... Would any of you know about this? Its name was similar (-ish) to Visual Basic, but it wasn't VB itself... The way I was asked to use it was to collate financially reported information from a series of European entities and then present them in a specific format for the client. The client was Synstar (pan European disaster recovery computing service), since taken over by HP. The …

Because Microsoft will be removing vbScript in the next version of Windows, I have been busy converting my utility vbScripts into Python. Part of this is a library of functions that I keep in `D:\include`. I'd like to maintain this system in Python, but the import process is rather clumsy. I have to import sys sys.path.insert(0,r'D:\include') Only after that can I import a file. The documentation is somewhat obtuse but I gather my best option is to add the file `D:\include__init__.py`. As long as that folder is known to Python I could then do from include import myfile1 to include …

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 want to create a bootable USB-stick. I have a MS-DOS 6.22 image file. I used Rufus but that didn't work. Do you know a better program for the job? If you think a Linux stick would be better... well, I decided to use a MS-DOS 6.22 and put Ghost on it. I would say that works great :) Thanks in advance edit: addition I put another item on this website earlier... which can be answered with the same solution, I think.

I wonder if anyone could assist with an intermittent BSOD... Initially it was a driver power state failure, lately its been watchdog. Event viewer shows the DCOM error 10016. I followed the article help on the CLSID error, which didn't change anything. w10 home on a toshiba satellite i7 5500u. The error is not consistent with any application launch, even none. Right now the machine is running perfectly. I've tried reinstalling av and mbam, drivers, ssd driver change etc. No difference. The only evidence I have is the problem occurs when the computer either restarts, or hibernates. It usually makes …

I have a problem- and I don't know if this is the place to post for help, but I've found good info on here before. I haven't been able to find an answer after looking through several dozen forums and chats and help sites. Maybe someone here can give me direction. First, I opened my PC to find the fonts on the desktop had been replaced by squares and symbols and nonsense. After searching I found a few ideas for how to fix it, and tried each of them, including running a .reg script, resetting the system fonts, deleting and …

Hi guys. I have two servers: 1. Client Facing Production Server 2. API Server. The Client facing sever (Server1) sends requests to the API Server (Server2). Server2 is hosted with one staric IP address and is accessible through three domain names, e.g. **www.domain1.com**, **domain1.com**, **test.domain2.com**. Often times the Server1 seems to clog up Server2 on **domain1.com**, but Server2 remains perfectly accessible through **www.domain1.com** and **test.domain2.com*. The clogged domain seems to be the one most used, and often auto-corrects itself. Can someone please explain to me what causes this? Windows Server 2016 with IIS 10, php 5.6.40, MySQL 5.0.11 (on Server1) …

Hi DaniWeb People. I am not really a network guy so please excuse me if this is a silly question. I want to find out if it is possible for me to set up one server that allows me to create various user profiles and let employees log into the one central server, almost like a terminal. How does one go about doing something like that? Should I use Windows Server xxxx with Active Directory? I basically want my users to be able to log in from anywhere in the world. Thank you in advance.

My workaday laptop is now an Acer Predator which while being very nice and all started to boot up with Windows Sticky Keys enabled. Now being a long time Windows user I went to the usual control panel, turned it off but it turned back on if the machine was rebooted or you logged out and back in. The usual Google research was done, registry changes made and still it persisted. As all you needed to do was tap the shift key a few times to turn it off I left it as it was until I had more free …
