Change the default settings for registration and opening.

When I'm in a file and choose "Save as", I need to find the location.  But then the very next file I do the same thing and I looking for it all over again.  Is there a way to backup a specific folder or default directory at any time.  Currently, it is by default in my office in most cases.  The same thing happens when I search for a file, open it and then go to open another file in the same folder.  This seems to be a huge waste of time and was not like that in previous versions.  Thank you for any input!


He has no control in Vista to make the changes you want to make for Vista itself.  David has provided default values for Windows 2000 and Windows XP, but not for Vista.  I can't find them for Vista- but they are what you feel and are entered into the system without installation available control to modify the default values (and I couldn't even find a way to do it with a registry hack).  Unfortunately, he must live with what you have.

In most other cases program, it is controlled by the program itself (and varies according to the program0.  Some of these programs have commands to adjust the default settings (again, this depends on the program).  You will have to search for the documentation of the program or visit their web site (or call them for technical assistance) for more information on each program.

I'm sorry this isn't the answer you want to hear.

  • Change the default ports for http and https


    I'm trying to change the default ports for http and https

    I have a 506th PIX (which does NOT of NAT)

    I have the following: -.

    Access-group acl in interface outside

    where 601 and 602 are the http port and https to be redirect to respectively.

    I changed the webserver accordingly

    I get the error message

    "No group of translation not found for tcp src outside:189.x.x.x/50232 dst inside:192.x.x.x/80" (trying to access port 80)

  • Changing the default settings for printing in Office Picture Manager

    Anyone know how to change the default setting for printing in Office Picture Manager?

    I have a user who clams that when they try photo printing settings in Office Picture Manager has been configured to print bac2 and paper 4 x 6.  Now when it prints, it must use the drop-down list boxes to tell it to print from bac2 and paper 4 x 6.
    I changed the default settings of the printer to print from the bac2 and use paper 4 x 6, but they must still use the drop-down list boxes in Picture Manager.
    Thank you!

    Although I maded the changes to the properties of the Windows printer I had to do that to solve the problem.

    To solve the problem:

    1. once in the print of the image window there is a link 'Options '.... "at the bottom right.

    2. once it's a click a print settings window that opens there. You will need to click on the link 'printer properties '.

    3. now the printer Document Properties window appears. Change of Source paper and media here.

    4. click on the OK button and now it's good to go.

  • Change the default settings for all Mac on a wireless network, Officejet 6500n, Lion 10.7.4


    In my view, there are a lot of discussions on change the print settings by default for printers hp in Leo, but my question is a little different. I have a network running on a wireless Netgear N600 router, and my HP Officejet 6500 is directly connected via USB. I want to set up the printer so that anyone who connects to the network via a mac wireless has the default value depending on parameters in any printing application:

    1. Quality: Fastdraft
    2. Color: gray
    3. Black cartridge only
    4. Print on both sides: long edge binding

    When I go to the page of the printer by entering the IP address in my browser, the administration utilities do not allow me to change the default settings and change the default settings in CUPS is useless since applications such as Safari, Word, and preview override these settings.

    Is that what I want possible?

    Thanks in advance.

    We gladly invite you.

    Indeed, that is right. When printing from a computer, the print settings can only be configured on the computer.

    The unit only will allow us to change this type of parameters for the work only stend, carried out from the device (e.g. copy or printing of the device using a memory card).

    Some business models can provide options to force parameters, print, but I'm afraid these capacities are not intended for consumer products.

    Kind regards


  • Change the default settings for a video effect?


    I have a ton of clips from interview to which I add the timecode for the transcriptions and translations effect.

    For every clip I increase the size and opacity, remove the symbol of field and change the Source timecode to the media. I have hundreds of clips and change the settings for each clip is a real pain.

    Is it possible to change the default settings of the effect so I can just drag effects to clips and do with it?

    then click with the right button and select "copy".

  • Can I change the default settings for the latency time Serial Windows with LabVIEW

    I have a wireless data collection device that my business is that I am using for the test one of our other wireless products. The device sends data series to a PC via a USB port. I wrote an automated LabVIEW program to test all the functions of my new product. However, after firing in the data, I realized that the serial data coming very fast and requires me to change latency of Windows by default for the port COM 16ms 2ms Miss not nothing. It's pretty easy for me to do locally on my machine, but much more difficult for me to spec for an off-site CM.

    Is it possible to have my LabVIEW program change the latency time of the COM Windows port of 16 ms to 2 ms automatically?

    Are you talking about the FTDI driver? I know that they allow these changes through registry settings. Thus the approach would probably be to have a small registry script that updates the parameter of function. Most likely, this will have to be run with elevated privileges, as these parameters resident generally in the HKLM or HKCR rather than the HKCU one hive.

  • Change the default settings for Officejet Pro 8600 wireless printing

    I can't find a place to print in color, project.  The printer will print in color, black and white, black & white project, but nothing else unless I change something.  And I don't understand how to change/use settings predefined.  There is nothing in my user manual helping to something else than basic printer installation tips.  (In fact, this can hardly be called a "user manual" because it is mainly a "installation manual".)  Can you advise?

    Hi SHSH128,

    Now, knowing your operating system, I can't help but to wonder if you use AirPrint driver and not the driver of HP. This is perhaps why the options you are looking for are not available.

    Follow these steps to check which driver you are using.

    Click on the Apple icon > System Preferences > print and scan, click on the printer so that it appears highlighted and look over to the centre/right of the window for printing and scanning. You say AirPrint?

    If you see AirPrint link to the image above, click on the symbol less to remove the printer, and then click the plus sign and select "add another printer or a Scanner.  Select your printer and next to the 'use' to choose your printer driver. See the image below.

    If you already use the HP driver, let me know and I'll see what I can find. Thank you.

  • Change the default file for downloads and some user folders locations

    A big thank you to all who have helped me, more recently DAXnnn and try * 3.  I come once more in need with questions.  For the cleaning of my boot partition before cloning to a smaller SSD, I'm getting cause folders USER My Documents, my music, my pictures, and my videos to be moved to a different physical disk drive.  I also want to do the same with the downloads.  After trying to use MKLINK (without success) and the location of the tab in the properties for folders (in vain), try * 3 put me on editing the registry.  While I did not yet any change, I followed his instructions to look under HKEY > CurrentUser > software > Microsoft > Windows > CurrentVersion > Explorer > Shell user folders and confirm watch registry.

    What I found is that the actions I took before running into problems using the options of localities had caused registry entries updated to show the new names of path of My Documents (under personal in the registry path) and my music.  This leaves downloads, my pictures, and my videos to be changed before the data transfer of the boot partition to reduce before cloning.  I discovered the writings of my pictures and my videos contain a variable %UserProfile% then the names of folders.  My assumption (often a wrong thing to do, I know) is that I can change these entries replacing %UserProfile% with the name of path, including the drive etc letter describing where I want to move the old data and write new data and changes.  IS THAT CORRECT?

    Regarding downloads, what I discovered is the second entry in HKEY > CurrentUser > software > Microsoft > Windows > CurrentVersion > Explorer > User Shell Folders, below (default) is a name {374DE290-123F-4565-9164-...}, displayed once indicating the value of % USERPROFILE%\Downloads.  Using my penchant for the skip logic, I assume that I can edit this article replace the value data with the path name where I want future writing downloads.  IS THAT CORRECT?

    If I can confirm or correct information, I am very close to stripping the size of my partition boot prefixed operation clone to place what's left on my SSD.

    Thanks to all for participating in such a large forum community!


    Yes you are right.  If you want that your download location for be moved, just change:

    Old: %userprofile%\downloads

    New: E:\OtherDrive\Some Windows\

    This will make all your downloads stored in the folder 'folder of some '.  Just be sure to include a folder name and make sure that this folder actually exists.  Make sure not to say a disc like E:\ or all your documents could get dumped at the top of this reader, rather than in a folder.

    Is it tiny zoomed? You can reset the zoom level on a site by holding down the Ctrl key and typing 0 (that's a zero).

    Or is there a large dark area, leaving only a tiny vision area? This could be the sensitive Design Mode and usually by pressing the ESC key, which clears.
