You can simply right-click the Desktop & click Refresh. This saves the icon positions (at least it does on XP, also confirmed on Windows 7). Here's a simple way to confirm that this method works: Move an icon Kill explorer.exe (& restart it, if it don't auto-restart) Notice icon moves back (because it wasn't saved) Move icon again Right-click on ...

Type the first bit of text normally. Then, go to the Insert menu, choose Section, click on the Columns tab, and then choose two columns. That will give you two columns just for that section, rather than for the entire page.

The problem here is that the "two page view" you're using is just a two-page zoom, not a final print layout. I would recommend putting the blank page in for your reviewing, and then take it out just before print time.

These layouts are language dependent and based on the relative letter frequencies: QWERTY - English QWERTZ - German AZERTY - French The reasons for using these other keyboard layouts is that the letters unique to those languages are present as keys on the keyboard rather than having to be accessed via codes or the character map program. Though the French ...

A way to force Windows to save desktop icon positions without using third-party utilities: Open Notepad and enter some text, so that if you were to close it, it would show a confirmation dialog. Attempt to log off. Notepad (and possibly other applications) will ask you whether you want to save changes. Click Cancel. This will prevent Windows from logging ...

If you have a graphics program that can subtract images or do a layer with a subtraction blend mode, use that. Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro are two examples, and the GIMP probably works too. Unfortunately it doesn't work directly with Powerpoint files, you have to save each page as a graphic file.

I believe what's happening is that your new captions are automatically numbered, but the references to them are not automatically updated. There are a couple of ways to handle this. The first is easiest, but you have to remember to do it. Press Ctrl-A to select all the text in the document. Press F9 If you want the fields to be correct before printing ...

Just use tables instead of columns. Insert a 3-column, 1 row table, delete its borders and put your text into it accordingly (you may have to manually section it into thirds.)

After some great ideas from quack quixote, I tried some other stuff and found an answer to this question. I converted the Word document to PDF and, then using Illustrator, opened the document and formatted it the way I needed to and added page numbers. Then I can save back into a PDF. It worked nicely, and I gained additional formatting flexibility.

Two pages are just for preview. Just be sure that you select "Book fold" in Page setup dialog under "Multiple pages" since that will produce desired effect once book is printed. If you really need "real" page view in two page view, only solution that I am aware of is to insert blank page on start.

Using different keywords when searching, I finally landed on this page in Microsoft Office 2010 Forums, which explained the problem from an MS Word perspective. It appears that Skype Click To Call, which apparently automatically installs itself with Skype, causes this problem.

I don't know if there is a direct way to convert the files so that the window layout converts to the new 2.5 layout, however this solution should accomplish what you want. If you just start Blender with a new scene, then import the scene from your old file it should work. Start Blender 2.5 Delete the default box, camera and light (It won't let you delete ...

A work around solution (if you don't mind doing a little bit of manual hacking) is to just create a textbox, place it where ever you like, and then add the Table into that. This way, you are not constrained by the boundaries of each column. This has some draw backs, such as you may need to manually keep moving the textbox's position on screen as the content ...

According to this review from “Mark” (April 18, 2013) on Amazon titled, “If I could go back a year, I wouldn't have purchased (updated)” this keyboard won’t ever work correctly on Mac OS X no matter what you do: So, for starters, for those looking to buy this keyboard to use with OSX, don't. It's not compatible and there are no drivers or software ...

I have an HP 8440w atm, which I use with several monitor-setups, depending on where I use it. I use the built in device profile manager which comes with the ATI-video card.

On the wikia page you may find at least two (the ones I tested) which give you the tab indices, and one of them produces the number of windows inside each buffer which have edits.
