comment How to change the hh:mm:ss format in spreadsheets
Well, I actually just noticed IT WORKS correctly after I put the measures in place I described above. But not entirely, because the break-off point seems to be "100" not 60, to when a value is moved to the left. i.e. with a short array of numbers it somehow works, but if they get more, the calculation is off, because both minutes and seconds get /100 not /60 by the SUM function.

comment How to change the hh:mm:ss format in spreadsheets
Nope, Excel doesn't convert 90:15 to 1:30:15, so how is dividing by 60 gonna help? I tried to describe several times that dividing doesn't help. If I e.g. have the value 30:30(:00) (minutes:ss) and divide it by 60, then the new value is - yes - in minutes 00:50:50, which is more than the original value, i.e. totally wrong.

And I used [h]:mm, but the problem is it won't work properly, because the data base is false! If excel calculates hh:mm, while the actual numbers represent mm:ss, I will get a wrong solution.

hh:ss isn't possible as far as I know. Only hh:mm or mm:ss. What do you mean thus?

I have the opposite problem in Firefox, as it acts as OP wants it to.

comment Stop pinned tabs changing in Chrome
I have the opposite problem in Mozilla Firefox! I can't change the URL without unpinning the (new) URL, but if I wouldn't have too many tabs I wouldn't have pinned the tab (in which I want to do some real work) in the first place.

comment How can I view pdf meta-data in Windows Explorer?
Wow, sounds good! Unfortunately I can't find anything like this under "File" or in any other menu, in Acrobat XI. Could you help me out with a few screenshots?

comment How can I view pdf meta-data in Windows Explorer?
I read both, but I don't understand, sorry. IMHO it is not my job to figure out nerds (I mean the guys who built iFilter and the website) and technicalities. If you think iFilters are the solution, which file should I download? The plugin from Foxit costs $20, so Microsoft has an issue in their OS and now I should pay 50% of what an Windows 8 update costs to fix that? Again, I solved the problem already, but I at least want to understand what you try to sell me.

Chrome crashed and my answer is gone...I already had one app that did the job indirectly (reference management software that I had those PDF's put into) as well as "Rapid PDFCount". I am frank, I don't understand "iFilters", to me it seems they are deprecated or only of use for Microsoft Sharepoint (Server) products.

comment How can I view pdf meta-data in Windows Explorer?
Well, I can only say that I have installed: Adobe Reader XI, Adobe Acrobat 9, Bluebeam Revu 10, Foxit 5.4.3, PDF Creator, PrimoPDF and Copernic Desktop Search Professional. (CDS also doesn't display the page count.) I think that answers your question. If the iFilters should be used by any of those programs, they sure should be installed. Lastly, you don't know if "iFilter" will expose the page count, but I can tell you that I checked the page count property with the config given above, that is the sole reason that I ask this question on SE.
