Yes, this is possible if your files are named as you describe (as long as you don't miss any files out so the 'second column' is always even). What you can do is select every other file, choosing where you start (and thus selecting odd or even) If you View by icon (I chose large icon) and change the width of Windows Explorer so it only has "2 columns" , ...

Okay - possible solution here: Press 'Windows Key' + Q Type: regedit Open regedit as admin. Go to this folder: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace Delete any references to "odrive" or "Onedrive" or "Skydrive" within that folder.

There isn't presently a way of doing this in Notepad other then the way you have shown using the 'Save-as' which should show the directory of the file you have open. That being said, if you want this functionality, you can use a bunch of better applications that are also free. Such as: Notepad++ Sublime Text Editor UltraEdit (Might not be free anymore) ...

so wich is the real size on disk? That depends on what you actually want to measure. In terms of actual data, the filesize is one byte (that's all that has been written and can be read back). In terms of storage space that the file occupies, then the size is determined by the allocation unit of the filesystem. For NTFS on Windows, the typical or ...

I have tested the following, removing the registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\{0E270DAA-1BE6-48F2-AC49-8B7440BCAABB} Resolves the issue. Before: After: Didn't even require a restart of Explorer. As I can't see any information from your HKCU path I can't confirm if the GUID will be the ...

Sorry but that is not a valid AQS argument for length search. There are only 5 supported arguments for that search, and they pop up when typing length: You could see if an argument is valid, since it'll got blue, while your search code stayed black. See difference:

Audio CDs don't have any files at all. The tracks' data is compatible with WAV format, but their appearance as files is faked by Explorer and the Windows' CDFSs driver. (Some CD formats even have a data track alongside audio tracks, in which case Explorer doesn't show the audio tracks at all.) Although I remember Windows 98 actually had a third-party ...

Found this solution in a youtube comment, this worked for me. Problems started yesterday when I changed the display size from the default setting (150%) to the maximum (175%). You mentioned reverting back to 150%, and bang! problem fixed!

This is a bug more people seem to have. I solved it by deactivating the automatic colour in the Personalization Settings and also the Wallpaper Slideshow. Both of them seem to cause the explorer to do a kind of refresh, which throws you back to the top of the list or even to the parent folder. I found this solution here: ...

It is a Shell Namespace extension (like Recycle Bin). The uninstaller should have unregistered it. But it's still there. To remove it, run Registry Editor: Press Ctrl+R. Type regedit and click OK. Consent to elevation request. Expand the tree to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace. The tricky part is to ...

Adobe products are well-known for their voluminous updates of the registry, which are largely left-over after the uninstall. Below are some registry hacks which may relate to your problem. A hack that can be found in this thread is to go to the registry key HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{0E270DAA-1BE6-48F2-AC49-A38C4014C938}, right-click Permissions and set all ...

They are not WAV files with metadata, it is one continuous "file". See this article about detailed explanation. http://www.techsupportalert.com/how_to_work_with_audio_cd_cda_files.htm From the link: If you view the contents of a music CD from Windows, you'll see that it contains a number of .CDA files each corresponding to a song track.

Custom icons for windows explorer are stored in the desktop.ini file inside each folder. The icon itself is described with the IconResource tag. Ill include an example but you can read about it on TechNet Example Below: [.ShellClassInfo] IconResource=c:\SomeFolder\SomeIcon.ico

The icons for program files are stored in the exe files themselves. Windows explorer just extracts them from the embedded resources in the binary file. For non executable files it is a different story.

It depends, If you opened the file directly, (which then opened notepad), you can see the 'command line' in task manager, it will have the file path listed. (to see command line, open task manager, go to details page, right click the column header and select columns). But if you opened notepad first, and then opened the file (file->open), then no way I can ...

This is one of the side-effects of removing the Quick access section by modifying the Attributes registry value for Quick access shell folder. [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT{679f85cb-0220-4080-b29b-5540cc05aab6}\ShellFolder] Setting the "Attributes" value to a6000000 causes this problem. I found out after several tests that if you use the DWORD value 88000, you can ...

I'm afraid, it isn't possible at the moment, because there is no extension developed yet. You can keep track of the development here: https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=107602 (and vote on the issue, to receive more attention) However, there is a possibility, that may seams a little odd. It is, in my eyes, an overkill, but could be worth a shot, if ...

The Preview in Windows Explorer is handled by add-ons, which are little programs that declare themselves to Explorer so it knows to load them when encountering a matching file-type. Unfortunately, Microsoft supplies add-ons for only a few most-used file-types, leaving the work for other file-types to the companies that invented them. LibreOffice has not ...

The Quick access Pinned items are kept in a .automaticDestinations-ms file which is not plain text, where as "Favorites" in previous Windows OS were stored in %userprofile%\Links as normal shortcuts. I'm afraid the Quick access shortcuts can't be transferred directly to Favorites.

I think you may be looking for something like ShutApp. I haven't used it so I'm not sure if it works well but according to Raymond.cc it brings up a list of running processes that you could terminate on pressing Ctrl+Alt+End. screenshot courtesy of raymond.cc

Well, I think Notepad only tracks the last directory you made save as for files, However, I recommend to use another program like Notepad++, it is more efficient and will give you many features and it is still free and simple program

Definitely a driver issue. Windows is displaying the appropriately sized list, its just the graphics incorrectly rendering. Like cause: Windows 7/8 drivers on a Windows 10 system. Reinstalling the latest drivers from your graphics card vendor should definitely resolve this.

From the GUI: Ctrl + A will select all items in a folder. Using Ctrl + Left click on currently selected items will deselect ONLY that item. Using Shift + Left click will 'collapse' the selection from the top of the folder list to the item you left clicked on. Everything beneath that item will no longer be selected. There's a bunch of hotkeys similar ...

ok, I got an answer from Microsoft. They know this issue and currently work on it. This crash happens if the 2 monitors use different DPI scaling (they know it crashes with 175% on 1 and 100% on the other monitor). You should change the 175% to 150% or 200% to workaround it. Maybe this helps. Try it out.
