Apps :: Nitro Reader 3 Create PDF Locks Print Queues

Aug 4, 2015

From my experience on 2 Win 10 machines, beware of creating a pdf using Nitro Reader 3. On both machines the print function hung, and all print queues got stuck. Even a restart did not fix the problem (because, I presume, the issue was in the print queues themselves). The only way I found to resolve the issue was with a System Restore..... and this option is apparently turned OFF by default in Win 10.

For now, I suggest uninstalling Nitro Reader 3, and using the built in Microsoft Print to PDF instead. (Also turn on System Restore!) For reading PDFs, if, like me, you don't like Adobe Reader, Edge works fine!

Apps :: How To Use Adobe Reader To Open PDFs Instead Of Edge

Aug 14, 2015

I open a lot of manuals and Edge is so basic. It shows nothing from introduction to index just the manual.

I used to be able to go to the index and find the specific part of the manual I need. Has Microsoft blocked this.

Drivers/Hardware :: Print Spooler Chokes When Attempting To Print Certain PDF Files

Jan 10, 2016

The print spooler chokes on both of my Windows 10 machines when trying to deal with certain pdf files. For instance when I tried to print [URL] ... via my browser (Chrome), it printed the first 6 pages, but the printer showed an error when it came to the seventh page. When I then tried to create another job just to print the seventh page, it just hung around in the print spool and nothing happened at the printer.

I tried this several times on two machines. It was also impossible either to cancel the job in the print queue manager or to stop the spooler in the services manager in order to manually clear the print queue, which meant that the only way I could clear the queue was to restart the machine. I got the same behaviour whether I was printing to my physical printer or to the MS pdf printer. I also got the same behaviour when I tried to print from a different browser (Edge). This is not the first time I have had a problem with an unprintable file like this in Windows 10.

Apps :: How To Print Document From Microsoft Word

Aug 16, 2015

I've just updated to Windows 10 and found it impossible to print a document from Microsoft Word. When I press the "print" logo, or "Ctrl.P" I get a dialog box titled "Save Print Output as" with no facility to actually print. I've tried all the usual remedies... swearing, invoking the Almighty, banging my head on the table and threatening the computer with death...all to no avail.

There's probably something very simple that I've missed, but it still eludes me. Why do they mess about with something that has worked perfectly well up to now? All I want is to be able to print a doc. when I press "Print" ... is this too much to ask?

Apps :: Print Shop Pro 20 Doesn't Work?

Aug 25, 2015

When I purchased this new computer it had Windows 8.1 and I was able to use my prints shop pro 20 with it, without a problem. Now that I have updated to Windows 10, it is asking me to reinstall even though the app shows up. When the install is in process, it comes back and says it says there was an error, and then a second screen comes up and says fatal error. What is with that. I am not computer savvy so I don't understand a lot of the technical words that are throw around.

Apps :: Can't Change Default App From Acrobat Reader DC To Acrobat

Sep 8, 2015

I am trying to use the default programs app on the control pabel to set Acrobat 9.5 as the default viewer for pdf files. I also have Acrobat Reader DC installed. Neither program appears on the "set your default programs" screen so I changed it on the file associations screen. But Reader DC is still opening the .pdf files by default. I checked back on the default programs app, and the associations screen still lists Reader DC as the default app. But when I click the change program button it asks me if I want to keep the association with Acrobat 9.5! (see screenshot).

Apps :: Photo Edit And Print Software Not Working Correctly?

Dec 9, 2015

I have 3 photo edit/print programs on board, all of which worked perfectly under windows 7. However, since upgrading (?) to 10 I now find that none of them work properly, various problems, particularly printed image size. For instance, I wanted to print a 6" x 4" photo at actual size, but could only get it to print to full A4. After much fiddling & cussing I thought I had managed to get it to behave, only to find that it would then only print out at 3" x 2"!!! Is the problem with the software or is it the printer/laptop setup? I use an Epson XP-700 printer.

HP Envy 7640 / Cannot Print From Windows Apps - Mail - Edge - PDF Viewer

Jan 10, 2016

I am unable to print anything from Windows 10 apps on my desktop PC. Both my HP Envy 7640 and Samsung Laser are wired to the home network. 
However I can print from Chrome Browser and Paint, Photoshop and Word. Just not from the Mail app or Edge Browser. After pressing print a section opens up with the printer listed in a drop down menu, but says "connecting" all the time, which it never does. 
I have used the troubleshooting feature, removed the printers and installed them again, even via the add a printer option on the apps themselves, but nothing has worked.
To print an e-mail I have to open Chrome and access the email provider site directly.

Apps :: Cannot Create A New Event In Calendar App

Aug 31, 2015

My calendar app opens fine. I did the setup with adding accounts and I can view the calendar perfectly in any way I want (by month, day, etc.). As far as I can tell, everything is working except for the New Event button.

This is what it looks like:

The New Event button looks highlighted, even though my mouse is nowhere near that window. When I do mouse over it, nothing happens. If I mouse over the numbers on the calendar below it, they do get highlighted, but the New Event button does not. It's as though there's nothing there at all.

A calendar's useless to me if I can't put events on it. If I wanted to just see the chart, I'd just click the time on the taskbar.

Or perhaps if there is an app in the Windows Store (for free) that functions like this one should? I tried to find one, but they were all "view-only" calendars.

Apps :: Outlook And Word (Could Not Create Work File)

Sep 18, 2015

I'm getting two similar error messages when I try to open both Outlook and Word....

(Outlook / Word) could not create the work file. Check the temp environment variable.

Outlook is not opening at all, and Word will open at the second or third "OK" click on the error message.

I've spent the last 24 hours editing the registry, for both programs based on advice found online, but nothing has worked.

I'm using the Office 2013 versions of both programs (version 15 Outlook). How the registry should look for both programs, as this is preventing em from working (I'm self employed and use both programs all the time).

I saw that there's a workaround using IE, but it's not on my computer (only Edge). This keeps crashing when I try to open it, and I can't seem to get a download of IE, as Microsoft assume I have it already.

I tried a system restore several times but for some reason it won't work - I was even so desperate to fix it. I tried resetting the OS, but this also failed.

Add this to the problems of saving files in Word caused by Windows 10, and I have to say that for me, it wasn't a good choice to upgrade.

Desktop Locks Up

Mar 15, 2016

My desktop, which is set to never go to sleep (I use it as a Media Server), is locking up after it is idle for several hours.  When I go to wake it up, the monitors, nothing happens.  Caps Lock and Num Lock lights do not turn on or off.  The only way to get it to come back up is to power it down and back up.  As far as I can tell all the drivers are up to date.  I did install a new program, just before it started, but have since uninstalled the program without any change.  
I work in the PC repair field and built this PC myself.  It was operating magnificently just a week ago.  I do know it did do several Windows Updates before I installed, the subsequently uninstalled, a new program.

When I scale to 175 % in windows 10 I have several issues.

1 ) Constantly locks up.
2) It takes about 3 minutes for my network drives to connect.

If I scale it back to 150 it seems to work fine but I often remote desktop into the computer so I cant change the scaling when using RDP.

Updates :: Won't Update - Locks Computer Up

Jan 19, 2016

I've been working on my wife's computer that has had Win10 for the last several months. Her computer completely refuses to update Windows anymore. The updates will get stuck downloading at 0% even overnight and it uses up so much of the system resources that the computer slows to a crawl, taking ages to respond to any action, if it does at all.

Things I've tried:

1) Clearing out the Software Distribution folder
2) System restore
3) Windows update troubleshooter
4) Completely reinstalling Win10 via the Reset option in the Recovery menu (choosing to delete all files and programs)

The computer still locks up when trying to download any Win10 updates. The computer is a reasonably new desktop with 16GB of RAM and an AMD 8-core processor (I can get the more specific specs off of it if necessary).
