How To Change SAVE AS Locations Used To Use PLACES BAR EDITOR

Aug 31, 2015

I have custom PLACES in left pane of SAVE AS dialog boxes that I setup in Windows 7 and carried over to 8.1 then 10. I used program called PLACES BAR EDITOR which I think utilized Group Policy Editor or maybe gpedit was just an alternative way to do same thing. Regardless I cannot find how to do this in W10. gpedit is gone and PLACES BAR EDITOR will not install.

attached is shot of SAVE AS window, note the bottom has no icon because I deleted that location and want to update it to a different location.

Can't Change Folder Locations - Access Denied

Nov 27, 2015

I just bought a 500gb samsung 850 evo, transferred C, and am trying to use the old 1tb WD for mass storage.
I decided I'd put my videos and pictures there, so I changed the locations to inside folders in E... now instead of saying "Videos" and "Pictures" it says E: and E:, and when you click them it just takes you to directly to the drive, not inside the folder.
Now when I go to change it back to default location I get "The folder can't be moved here, access denied"
how to fix it.

Missing Icons In 2 Places For Devices

Aug 18, 2015

Never seen this before in other OS, just noticed when i hook up my external WD Ultra Passport no icon shows in Devices and Printers just square white icon, same happens in notification area under Safely Remove. Also in Devices and Printers my Epson Printer no longer shows as a Printer Icon but a Folder icon with name of the printer. Maybe with printer it is driver or software related to Windows 10, but both of these devices never had this happen in Windows 8.1.

Both devices work properly and is seen in Device manager correctly.

Where Are Favorites And Recent Places In File Explorer

Aug 6, 2015

Much as I like Windows 10 (despite an unnecessarily difficult installation), I'm horrified to find that they have apparently abandoned the 'Favorites' and 'Recent places' folders - which I used constantly and had grown to love.

Are they hiding them somewhere? Is there a way to restore/find them? Have I missed something obvious?

(I can't believe that they would be so stupid as to get rid of them: 'recent files' and 'Frequent folders' are good, but not quite as useful...).

Drivers/Hardware :: Mouse Won't Click On Certain Places

Oct 23, 2015

I've got this issue that comes and goes. So basically my mouse wont click my taskbar sometimes and on google chrome when i press on one of my bookmarks it opens a new tab instead and when i press on it, it closes down, and no im not pressing the X, its wherever i press it will just close down.

This issue started happening this summer when i did a fresh install of Windows 10 but then i fixed it by restarting explorer.exe and it disappeared but now even that wont work. It started to happen again when i installed Windows 10 on my SSD yesterday and the problem just showed up and then after a while it disappeared but now its back again.It is really frustrating. i read somewhere that it could be my middle mousewheel that is lagging up but i dont think so.

Group Policy Editor Warning?

Dec 21, 2015

This notice appears each time the Group Policy editor is opened, and takes two clicks on OK to close. Simple steps to banish it?

Checked out this article, but was unable to rename the two files mentioned. I did delete them, however, and this removed the error message. What damage that did is ... to be discovered. ^_^ Files are in RECYCLE bin. [URL] ....

I tried to do a search but it didn't come up with much. where the Save/SaveAs/Open dialogs don't open and instead the app crashes? I've seen it in Notepad, Paint and Word.

Antivirus :: Bitlocker With TPM And Offline Password Editor

Jan 23, 2016

If I enable Bitlocker with TPM (i.e. no passcode required on boot-up), and I have the Local Administrator account enabled on the machine (with my normal user account as a standard account), would it be possible for someone with a Hirens Boot CD blank/reset the Local Administrator account password and then gain access to the PC/Laptop using a tool such as this: Offline Windows Password & Registry Editor

Should I be enabling the PIN/Password protection on BitLocker, or does BitLocker prevent these sorts of tools from being used?

Apps :: Save Word Document Using Save As?

Feb 10, 2016

I'm running Office 2003 in Windows 10 (upgraded from Windows 7) with no visible issues.

Except that when I want to save a Word document using "Save As" it prompts me for all sorts of unsuitable locations...My Music, My Pictures, My Videos, and some random programs which somehow landed up in the "Documents" folder. None of the shortcuts I'd like to see there (and which are in the folder, because I put them there!) show up. What to do?

Antivirus :: Windows Defender Missing From Group Policy Editor

Oct 24, 2015

I've attempted to turn off my windows defender via group policy editing, however; following the guide here on the forums (how to turn off defender) there is simply no folder/tree with windows defender in the group policy editor.

I have w10 pro and am able to successfully start gpedit.msc.

Why its missing? I really dislike the regedit way of disabling/enabling; and thus wish to use gpedit...

Customization :: Use Different Taskbar Locations On Different Displays

Aug 7, 2015

When I first upgraded, the taskbar on my first display was located on the left side of the display and the taskbar on my second display was located on the bottom. I liked this. But I wanted to see how I'd like having both on left hand side. I went into taskbar properties. `Taskbar location on screen` was set to `custom` and I changed it to `left`.

I decided I didn't like this and wanted to change it back. But `custom` no longer appeared in this drop down and I couldn't find any other option to change them separately. Is there any way to change it back? Perhaps a specific registry key?

Search Bar Only Searches Indexed Locations

Feb 8, 2016

The search function of the Start menu is not working as it should. When I enter a program's or setting's name, it retrieves results almost immediately, but if I search a document or another file (like capture.png or settings.cfg), it fails to find it.

I've tried running the search within the File Explorer to make sure it's not related to something else. This way I can retrieve results almost immediately. Tried enabling/disabling Cortana, and checked the taskmanager. SearchUI is shown running when running a search, and turns suspended when I'm not searching anything.

Then I tried indexing the locations of those files that Start Search fails to find. After that, Start Search can find those files too. But here's the catch: I'm running the OS on an SSD and I don't want to turn it on since it's pointless & reduces the lifespan of the drive.

So my question is: Is it how start search supposed to work? Does it only search indexed locations and apps&settings?

Apps :: Install 32 And 64 Bit Java In Alternate Locations Working Both At Once

Feb 10, 2016

I reinstalled Windows to try to fix an issue, but it did not work. I am installing my programs to an alternate drive, and would like to install Java there as well. I know about the JRE_HOME environment variable, but it can only point to 32 OR 64-bit Java. Is there any way to have both running simultaneously without need to switch the variable to the 64-bit path? I think that this does happen when I install to the default location, so how can I do that?
